Your yoga teacher for the week is Sean Yuen. He practice yoga since 2009, learning in Hong Kong and Australia. He became a Registered Yoga teacher in India in April 2014, mainly focusing his practices in Hatha yoga, Yin yoga and Yoga therapy. He likes to combine his knowledge of Traditional Chinese medicine with Yoga to attain a better therapeutic result as well as a preventive health measure for everyone.
The more he practice, the more he realizes that his knowledge is limited, and the more he wants to learn and dig deeper into the healing world. That is another reason (beside seeking for freedom) to set off his travel and be a student of the world.
"In Thailand, I learnt how to identify and use some local herbs.
In India, I learnt the real meaning of yoga.
In Nepal, I dived into meditation practice.
In Finland, I revised my Qigong and Taichi practices.
In Belgium, I learnt about Reiki."
"The list will keep going, as there are no ending of pursuing all the knowledge.
To be a healer is my lifetime mission, and I want to do it at my best. That’s why I have to keep learning, and improving my skills."
