David Chen

SH Plaza 66, Shanghai, Hong Kong


David was born in an ordinary Sichuan family and his parents worked in the Railroad Bureau. He inherited solid art skills and appreciation of aesthetics from his father who loved calligraphy and painting. After graduation, although he followed in his father’s footsteps and succeeded the lifelong job, David had a greater dream. In 2003, he started to practise yoga. In 2007, he became one of the first certified national advanced Yoga Instructors in China. He has accumulated valuable experience during his teaching in Shanghai for more than ten years. His classes are lively and vivid, full of energy and humour. David has been learning from the world's top yoga masters to explore the essence of yoga. Years of persistence and curiosity help him to evolve further.From 2012, David began to explore AcroYoga and he has been invited to many yoga conferences to demonstrate and share the grace of AcroYoga. Apart from yoga, David has travelled by motorcycle from Shanghai to Tibet, Xinjiang twice. The total distance was more than 30,000 km, including crossing through no man's land along the National Highway 219, as well as the world's longest highway, the Taklamakan Desert Highway. David thinks that it was yoga which strengthens his mind, making him fearless and always with deep gratitude, while thousands of miles of journey also gave him profound life experience and a new perspective. David says, “Let the joy lives in Yoga practice, in this way you can get more happiness from it!" David says, “Let the joy lives in Yoga practice, in this way you can get more happiness from it!"
