Mai Li has 500 hrs RYT and is the former director of two hispter Cafes in Hong Kong. She has practiced asanas for more than a decade, and is dedicated to learning traditional Chinese medicine ever since she was a teen which was something that was instilled in her by her grandparents.
She started her teaching path in 2016 by studying traditional ashtanga yoga in one of the best teacher training ashram in Rishikesh of India, indulged with yoga philosophy and human anatomy and was lucky enough to learn PG Yin Yoga with Jo Phee (Paul Grilley’s senior assistant), overturning the traditional understanding of alignment and integrating Yin, Yang, Five Elements and human meridian theories into yoga asanas.
Her teaching approach, since then, no longer limited to aesthetic but mainly focuses on practicality, “I teach yoga, not asana” is her catch phrase.
