Rhonda Yung started her yoga practice back in 2003 during the SARS period in the fear-filled Hong Kong - she was inspired by an article on yoga that she edited for a women’s magazine. Having the urge to maintain mental and physical wellbeing and stability, she started her first lesson in the International Yoga Institute (IYI) and, subsequently, completed a year-long 100-hour teacher-training programme with Sravaniya DiPecoraro in the Institute in 2004.
With her persistent self-practice and intensive study of the Bhagavad Gita with Sravaniya, Rhonda further pursued her yoga practice and eventually took refuge in the Iyengar Yoga system. She practised with her first Iyengar yoga teachers, Linda Shevloff and George Dovas, and attended immersive workshops by senior teachers including Birjoo Mehta, Father Joe Periera, Sue Scott (now Sue Everett), to name a few. During her stint in the US from 2015 to 2016 after leaving her corporate communications career in the art world, she immersed herself into practising within the expansive network of Iyengar yoga schools in the region, studying with local senior teachers such as Bobby Clennell and Manuoso Manos.
In 2017, in order to deepen and discipline her practice to another level, she embarked on a 3-year teacher-training journey with Junior-Intermediate-III-certified Iyengar yoga teacher Dr. Maggie Tan who is especially seasoned with the muscuo-skeletal movement in yoga. In her third year of study, Rhonda has developed a disciplined and meditative practice. She believes that progressive, uninterrupted and single-minded practices bring contentment and liberation in life. She aspires to become a certified Iyengar yoga teacher and shares her knowledge inherited from Guruji – BKS Iyengar - and his entire family to a wider population in Hong Kong in a systematic, joyful and mindful manner. She continues to study in India with the Iyengar family and teachers such as Jawahar Bangera, Raya Uma Datta and Birjoo Mehta. Rhonda is fluent in Cantonese, English and Mandarin.
