About Our Centre

The Celestial Wishing Tree

The Iyengar Yoga Centre of Hong Kong was founded by Linda Shevloff in 1999. At this time the name of the centre was “The Celestial Wishing Tree” and located in Central. Pictured right is Linda Shevloff teaching a class when the centre was located on Upper Wyndham Street Central in front of the former central police headquarters. 

In 2006, the centre moved to Sheung Wan. At this time, Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar gave specific authorisation to the centre to bear his name and it was then that the centre was renamed “The Iyengar Yoga Centre of Hong Kong”.

In 2010, George Dovas took over the running of the centre from Linda Shevloff. George had been a student of the centre almost since the inception of the centre and undertook his teacher training through the centre.

A very special chapter in the story of this centre came in 2011 when Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar visited Hong Kong en route to his historic China visit. B.K.S.Iyengar’s visit to China was by way of invitation from the Chinese Government to the Indian Government. In China, B.K.S. Iyengar taught a 3 day convention to over 1,300 students as well as giving discourses on the subject of Yoga. For the Yoga students in Hong Kong, his visit to Hong Kong was an auspicious occasion.












In 2013, The Iyengar Yoga Centre of Hong Kong moved to The Pemberton building in Sheung Wan.

What Our Students Are Saying ...

I have noticeable improvement since joining your class which I cannot tell exactly the reason but I suspect is the very clear guidelines and well sequenced step by step teaching.


Just wanted to say thank you for your time and guidance. I really so happy for the class today...... I can do the "real & safe" headstand pose finally. Without your guidance and help, we won't realize how to do it. 


I really appreciate that at the beginning of the class you take the time to give plenty of instructions to sit into cross legged pose. It helps to get into the class, focus and let go of what is on my mind.    


I like the 'properness', mindfulness, and the teaching generousity given to the students during the class. i have learned so much about my body since the past 12 months.
