Rama Xu

SH Century Link, Shanghai, Hong Kong


Rama first encountered yoga in 2005, while she was still a Latin dancer. She used to think that she captured the passion of life in dance’s rhythm. Then, she found a new inner peace and freedom through every breath when she practised yoga. A year later, she began to study with Master Malik, the pioneer Yoga Guru from India to China. She received her first teacher training certification in Ashtanga yoga in Beijing in 2008. From this point onwards, she started to understand the ancient spiritual wisdom of yoga and realised that it can bring huge transformation and growth to her life. That’s when Rama knew exactly what she wanted and commenced her journey of yoga. Rama travelled to India to immerse herself in the yoga culture in 2010 and 2011. She then studied chanting, Sanskrit and philosophy with Yama, a famous spiritual yoga teacher in Shanghai. Due to her vocal music training background, Rama tries to incorporate music & chanting elements into her class and also started to host some yoga chanting events in different places. She wants to help students discover a new way of feeling the unity of multi-energy from body and mind. Since 2006, Rama has been teaching and practising yoga with internationally renowned teachers. Rama is grateful to have met Andrey Lappa during Universal Yoga teacher training in 2014, who unveiled a new perspective for her on the cognition of yoga and helped her to understand the logic between asana and vinyasa sequencing in teaching and self-practice. Rama also received great blessings from David Kyle in his Rocket Yoga training, during which she connected tremendously to her inner energy under his direct and spiritual guidance. Rocket Yoga has become a significant part of her disciplined life of yoga. Rama’s classes are full of rhythm and energy flow with a focus on encouraging students to explore their own infinite possibilities on the basis of alignment. She utilises her keen eyes to help students change any negative habits and break through their perceived limitations. She guides students to realise that asana practice is the beginning of the awakening process of the body and consciousness. Rama is also dedicated to inspiring students to better understand and accept themselves and achieve the power of ultimate inner peace and joy from yoga.
