ChauKei grew up in Canada and graduated in Psychology in York University. She recently moved back to Hong Kong which is one of the places she calls home. She studied Yoga Therapy and Ayurvedic medicine, Bikram Yoga and Ana Forrest Yoga. She has been teaching yoga worldwide since 2006.
In 2013, she won the prestigious International Yoga Sports Federation Championship, the world’s largest international yoga competition with participants from over 25 countries. A two time Silver medalist and one time Bronze medalist Chaukei became the first champion to have earned all three medals. Just as significant is the fact that she became the first mother to become World Yoga Champion.
Born in Malaysia, Jun started ballet when she was 9 and later moved to New York to pursue her dance career. When she first started practicing yoga, she felt it was just an extension of expression, but yoga turned out to be an anchor that kept her more grounded and she learned to be more focused on the present. Practicing and teaching yoga has also given her a whole new perspective on moving with the breath. The muscles are more at ease with proper breathing techniques and Prana, instead of being rigid with force.
