Ray Lu

BJ WF Central, Beijing, Hong Kong


Ray is from Yichang and fell in love with yoga after experiencing its body-mind connection in 2010, which inspired him into the idea of becoming a yoga teacher. He sees yoga learning as a kind of fun that also equips him with knowledge, which is why he got so deeply involved in it. Six years of art study in school opened Ray’s mind, vision and body. Combining yoga with art allows him to understand the true meaning of yoga. From the human anatomy to class sequencing, Ray believes that space, art and yoga are connected to each other. Ray sees yoga as an art that can be simply understood as the art of the body in space."The uninhibited sway of the body, the boundless flow of thought and the free interweaving of mind constitute the star map of life." is his favourite quote. Yoga allows people to be free and unrestrained and accepting of their inner selves, which is the message that Ray wants to share with others. Yoga postures are limited, but the possibility of combinations is infinite. When Ray teaches, he prefers to be flexible. He loves to try different ways of playing with the original rules so that his students can't guess his routine and can experience something new in every yoga class.
