As some of you may know, I have been running a monthly community rooftop class on the rooftop of my home on the last Sunday of the month. It’s en event where I usually partner up with another yoga teacher to co-teach the yoga class. Then I have my husband plays the role of both the DJ and the photographer of the event. And I reached out to local healthy food providers/caterers/chefs to provide healthy snacks and nibbles of the event.
The original idea when I started this event, I am going to be honest – it was because I needed a venue to teach. As a new yoga teacher, I needed to build up my teaching experience, before.. Erm… anyone would hire me. So I thought… what’s better than running a yoga event at my home?
Then I thought… I had many new yoga teacher friends like myself that want to teach… and hey, as a new teacher it’s better to “share the burden” right? So as a tradition this has always been a class co-teach by two teachers.
To make the event more “attractive ” – something you worry when you are a new teacher.. better bring in some “goodies”. So I reached out to my friends who are in the healthy food business to sponsor some nibbles at the event. I have been grateful that I have got amazing friends who have been so willing to help with no cost.
And then I got many friends who helped me to be the teaching assistants of the class. Not only they help assisted the class, they brought their friends in, and helped me to promote the event.
It has been 6 months since the first event. I came from a place when I worried about no one would hire me to teaching a 350 people class at #OMFESTHK. I am now a full time yoga teacher teaching at various studios, offices and offering private lessons in Hong Kongt. I also teach on Yoogia, an online yoga channel which is available to over 50 countries worldwide.
I took a 2 months break in summer. However Bowen Rooftop Flow is where I begin, and I intended to continue to run this event once a month to bring the yoga (and non yoga) community together.
I am super excited to bring the party back on a special day on Mid Autumn Festival – a day in Chinese tradition is to bring the friends and family together. On this day I will partner up the amazing Heloise, who is a yoga teacher at Flex HK in Hong Kong, and also a teacher on Yoogaia as we lead through a detoxing yet grounding practice at sunset.
