Enter, Dr. Bryan Lau's "passion for healing". I was first moved by his undying efforts to create a "pay as you wish" yoga movement in Hong Kong making yoga accessible to all. Dr. Bryan's skillful approach to teaching has gained an ever growing mass community in Hong Kong. In response to such a following, Dr. Bryan has established "Medic Yoga". Teachers are both certified as yoga instructors and in the medical field. Knowledge from both fields are woven into the teachings giving an overall sensation of therapy and healing of body mind.
I have the absolute pleasure of assisting Dr. Bryan's ginormous classes once a week. For the full hour, my hands make contact with each student helping them sculpt the pose with more individualized attention. It is a delight to be in the presence of Dr. Bryan teaching his students. He fluctuates between languages seamlessly which allows for the whole class to be fully engaged. This is an open invitation for all to attend. More to the point. I am thrilled to announce Dr. Bryans newly launched monthly : Medic Yoga - Therapeutic and Anatomy Workshop.
