lc chong

​For LC, yoga is a daily expression of gratitude for a body she never felt comfortable in growing up. The first time she did yoga was pure, sweaty joy. From that point on, the search for improvement in the physical asanas led her onto the mat each day to practise. Little did she know, she was developing a daily Sadhana, one that would root her and guide her when things get tough.


LC’s classes are designed to lead practitioners in exactly the same way she was led- by focusing on the joy of movement, getting comfortable in their own skin, and encourage them to develop a daily practice. Through that, students can then begin to cultivate a relationship with themselves, and learn to find contentment in being just as they are.
