From Ahimsa to International Acclaim – the story of Gilbert Ng, founder of Yzone Wellness (HK) Internationally renowned yogi, Gilbert Ng, has been a practicing yogi for over 20 years and counting. He has a martial arts background having trained in Chinese martial arts from the age of 7 to 17 before embarking in yogic practices. Gilbert’s introduction to yoga started when he was practicing Vippasana meditation at Malaysia’s reknowned Buddhist Maha Vihara Temple in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur at the age of 22. Faced with joint problems due to his vigorous martial arts training at a young age, a senior meditation facilitator at the temple introduced him to the practice of yoga conducted by Indian yogis at the temple. After his first few Yoga sessions, there was no looking back and Gilbert pursued yoga passionately, training both locally and overseas. Gilbert’s practice is strongly founded in both the traditional Ashtanga style and modern vinyasa having practiced with countless international yoga gurus. His most memorable experience was meeting a sanyasin in Nepal whose words of advice have inspired him in his approach to his personal practice and teaching philosophy to this day. Gilbert’s personal yoga philosophy is that to truly experience yoga, one needs to know both the anatomy and physiology of each and every asana through the control of breathing. Gilbert’s hope for each and every student that comes to practice on his mat is that through their practice, and his guidance, each and every one of his students will have a balanced, healthier and happier life.

According to Gilbert, practicing Ahimsa towards one’s self, is of utmost importance as we all need to honor our bodies limitations and slowly work on our bodies without incurring unnecessary injuries through the practice of yoga.

He has come a long way from his first teacher training course (ttc) which was only attended by four students. His honesty and earnestness in teaching yoga from his heart has attracted thousands of practitioners in China since then.
