Ming is a student who works hard and dedicates his full time to Yoga, to study how to understand Ashtanga Yoga, and he has been to India to study Yoga for many years.
He is good at combining the previously studied professional knowledge with Yoga practice and teaching, helping students study and understand the connection among breath, consciousness (heart) and body during Yoga exercises by employing the observation and spatial thinking applied in drawing. In the long-term process of following and learning from John, Ming has established a systematic Yoga logic thinking, thus to broaden horizons and achieve extensive practice results. A very specific and characteristic Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga full vinyasa counting pattern has been created and computer designed by Ming.

Moreover, he also compiled a Chinese language practice manual which is applied to his “workshops”.
