Helene Yu

Helene Yu

Peninsula Office Tower, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong


As a lifelong exercise enthusiast, Helene started practising yoga in 1999 to incorporate a stretching and conditioning component into her workout plan. Then she realised that yoga was much more than physical exercise – it was a way of life, calming her fluctuating mind due to the stress from work and helping her to stay rooted in the present moment. Helene was hooked on the sense of peace and bliss that yoga brought to her life. In 2007, Helene became a yoga teacher so that she could continue to learn by teaching and to teach by learning, cultivating and sharing a spirit of gratitude with everyone she met. She believes that this ancient practice not only makes the physical body strong and toned, it also disciplines and calms the mind for true understanding of one's soul and self that is connected with the universe. Helene cites Swami Veda Bharati & Michel Besnard as the teachers who have influenced her most in her yoga journey. Practise with the open heart and we will begin to appreciate the beauty in everything we see, touch and experience.
