Tryphena (T) started her yoga practice in 2005 when she was living in New York City as a hotelier for the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. Her first training was in India with Moksha Yoga. Tryphena is one of a few 500hr certified Baptiste teachers in Asia. She has led numerous workshops, retreats, as well as teacher trainings over the years. T now teaches yoga in Hong Kong & seeks to share a complete & grounded practice with her students.
In her former life, Tryphena used to work for the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. Her life in New York City was highly stressful and she was constantly suffering from lots of anxiety and health related issues. At a friend's suggestion, she went to a yoga class and fell in love with it. Her health issues went away, she became more confident and started healing on a cellular level. She went from being an unhappy person to someone who is happy and content with her life. Tryphena firmly believes that it is in our way of living that the spirit of yoga truly comes to life. Tryphena is one of a few 500hr certified Baptiste teachers in Asia. Over the last decade, Tryphena invested many hours in training with Baron Baptiste, both as a student, and as an assistant in his trainings. She has led numerous workshops, retreats, as well as teacher trainings over the years. These days, T’s practice has shifted from being asana-based to a more holistic and complete practice. T loves to incorporate more chanting, pranayama, philosophies and meditation into her classes so that people can get to experience a fuller aspect of the practice rather than just merely chasing after the next pose. Come as your are and experience the magic of yoga unfold on your mat. Yoga is us living it in our whole lives rather than just something we do on our yoga mat. T is a contributing teacher for the 100/200-hour Empowered Deeper Studies Programs.
