    Sam Whitaker completed 200 hours of Hatha yoga teacher training under the guidance of Master Yogananth Andiappan at the International Yoga Academy’s (IYA) Anahata Yoga studio in Hong Kong. She has also completed an additional 300 hours of teacher training in Vinyasa Flow at Sampoorna Yoga in Goa, India — both schools recognised by Yoga Alliance.

    She loves to share the benefits of yoga with others, Sam’s decision to teach yoga comes from a desire to help people step away from daily stress, and take some time to focus on their body, mind, and breath. She hopes her students will leave her class feeling happier and more peaceful than when they arrived.

    Sam volunteers for the Andiappan Yoga Community’s yoga programme for overseas workers, teaching free yoga classes to Hong Kong’s domestic helpers every Sunday. She loves the wonderful energy and big smiles the students bring to their practice, and teaching them is the highlight of her day!

    Her favourite yoga pose is the tree pose (Vrksasana). Sam loves the way this balancing posture quiets her mind and instills her with a sense of calmness, groundedness, and contentment.
