On & Off the Mat With: Hugh Lee

As a yoga teacher, what inspires and motivates your teaching?

Modern culture is burnt out, stressed out and anxious. As a former depression sufferer, Yoga/Meditation is a powerful tool for healing, I understand the transformational effects Yoga can have. I’m all about service and being a channel to help heal others.

How has your own yoga practice evolved since becoming a teacher?

I’m more motivated to do home Yin and Meditation practice everyday. If you’re not practicing regularly, you’re not really teaching Yoga.

Do you have any yoga teachers that you admire and/or look up to? Who are they?

Andrew Mournehis he was my first Yoga teacher, he Mentored me in my Yoga teacher training and I co-taught with him on Yoga workshops and retreats local and overseas.

For those of us that haven't practiced with you before, what can we expect from your classes?

Long, slow, and deep practice of tension releasing Yin poses that help create healing. Whilst practicing Mindfulness Meditation in the poses/practice.

I’m all about service and being a channel to help heal others.

What type of class could you teach all day, everyday and why?

Yin Yoga with Meditation. It doesn’t deplete my qi....
