Allison Wong Toi
Allison started practicing yoga in 2000 in her hometown Auckland, New Zealand. She took her first Bikram Yoga class in March 2004 and although the heat challenged her the feeling after class was pure magic. From the first class she was hooked. Not long after that she decided that she wanted to share her passion for Bikram Yoga with others and go to teacher training. Allison graduated from Bikram Yoga teacher training in fall 2005.
In 2006 the opportunity to teach in Hong Kong presented itself to her and she wanted to dive in and explore the possibilities of teaching full time and has never looked back. Since then she has taught at studios around the world, including Auckland, Hong Kong, Vancouver, London, Stockholm, Malmö and Copenhagen. She was based in Malmö and has been teaching Bikram yoga in Sweden since 2008.
¨Teaching and practicing Bikram Yoga has taught and continues to teach me valuable lessons on many different levels. Bikram Yoga has made me confront myself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. The challenges and struggles we face in the hot room are so often a mirror for our life outside the hot room. I have learnt and am still learning with how to translate the triumphs in my practice to life off the mat. I look forward to bringing this powerfully healing and transformative yoga to the people of Göteborg.¨
