Sherri Rao is the owner of Fine-Yoga /BeijingYOGA in Beijing, China. She was introduced to Yoga in the year 2000 and is now one of the most serious yoga practitioners in China. So far the only mainland Chinese doing Ashtanga 2nd series in Pattabhi Jois’s shala in Mysore, India. In 2007 Sherri also translated and published John Scott’s book: Ashtanga Yoga.
My purpose of practicing Yoga is to help more people with and through Yoga, and in my school we now also practice and teach other styles beside Ashtanga. It is wonderful exploring different forms of Yoga. China is a big market for Yoga, but a different one. China is not really a real open country. People think differently and most of us don’t speak English. I feel so fortunate that I am in the yoga profession, and speaking good English, so that I better can introduce well established quality Yoga to mainland China and the Chinese.
