Maisie Ren

Maisie Ren

BJ WF Central, Beijing, Hong Kong


Maisie first practised yoga upon graduating from college in 2013 after experiencing a waist injury from her many years of a career in dancing. She realised that yoga was different from dancing in its benefits to her body. She alleviated the pain in her waist by practising yoga and became determined to switch from a dance teacher to a yoga teacher, thereafter completing a 200-hour teacher training in 2015. In the course, Maisie was impressed by Vincent's yoga teaching – not only his practical and rigorous style, but also his magical ability to soothe the soul. He respected everyone’s individual differences and emphasised breathing as a connection between movement and consciousness. His practice was rich and mellow. Every student experienced integration with Vincent’s keen insight and spiritual support combined with compassionate care, leading them step by step into subtle awareness. This deep and broad vision triggered Maisie’s motivation to explore, and she gained an unprecedented sense of self-reflection and awakening. In Maisie's class, you may find a gentle stretch, a flow of breath, a dynamic challenge, fun and flexible physical mobilisation to work. She refuses to be boring, and she focuses on the combination of breathing and body style. After personally seeing improvement in her injury with yoga, she pays special attention to safety in her teaching. Yoga has brought Maisie more humility and wisdom and constantly helps her students to feel peace, health and love.
