Yoga Alliance E-RYT 200hrs
Founder of Avocado Development
A curious mind took Victor to the yoga mat more than 10 years ago. Since then, he went on a journey through different schools of yoga – Iyengar, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Power and Yin yoga. In 2010, his dedication of yoga finally took him to Sivananda Kutir, spending four weeks in an ashram in the remote Himalayan region of Northern India, learning under the tutelage of Swami Vishnudevananda’s disciples.
An Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance, Victor also completed a Yin Yoga Teacher Training workshop with Sarah Powers in 2010. In 2011, he attended China Yoga Summit, which was conducted by Sri B.K.S Iyengar himself. He has also trained and worked closely with Donna Farhi, Claire Norgate, Cameron Tukapua, Max Strom, Patrick Creelman, Miguel Sant’ana, Yuval Ayalon, and Briohny and Dice Ilda-Klein.
With over 4500 hours of yoga teaching, Victor has lived in Beijing for six years, where he taught yoga in English and Putonghua. Now based in Hong Kong, he is also a qualified Pilates teacher and AntiGravity Fitness Instructor. Victor has run over 30 yoga workshops, retreats and teacher trainings in over 20 cities in China, Indonesia, New Zealand, Japan and India, specializing in inversions, arm balances and core strengthening, taught in a scientific and safe manner. He is a co-founder of the highly successful Mentorship Weekend Workshop - a post-graduation programme for yoga teachers in Hong Kong, helping them build up a tight yoga community and kick-start their yoga career.
Celebrated for his playful teaching styles and attention to details, Victor has been a long-time Lululemon Ambassador and has twice been selected as one of “Top 10 Yoga Teachers” by Hong Kong Tatler, and as one of the “Top 13 Yoga Hunks” by Singapore’s Her World Magazine. He is also a frequent guest teacher at many major yoga festivals and events in Hong Kong and Asia at large.
