Candice Lim Hing
Candice discovered yoga while traveling in India, where she practiced daily on the beach. Upon returning to Canada, she wanted to keep practicing yoga and a friend introduced her to Bikram Yoga. She fell in love at first practice with Bikram Yoga! Candice is always expanding her knowledge and finding ways to share all the benefits of yoga with others. She attended Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in Los Angeles in 2004 and since then has continued to expand her training while running three yoga studios. She has completed other teacher training courses such as Bikram Advanced Workshop in Hawaii in 2006, Kids Yoga Training in Vancouver in 2012, Synergy Yoga Teacher Training with Francisco Morales in Peru in 2012, Ghosh Lineage Master Core Advanced Teacher Training with Tony Sanchez in Mexico in 2013, Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Bernie Clark in Vancouver in 2014, Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training with Seane Corn in Vancouver in 2015, and Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training with Eddie Modestini and Nicki Doane. She has also taken various other workshops with renowned teachers like Mary Jarvis, Esak Garcia, Kino Macgregor and Ray Long.
After teaching in different studios in the Lower Mainland, Candice opened the Langley studio in 2007 to bring this therapeutic yoga to a new community. She opened the Maple Ridge studio in 2012 and the Surrey studio in 2013 with her mom, Mary.
Candice loves interacting with all students and is very grateful for the opportunity to share yoga in all communities. She enjoys getting to know everyone so make sure to say hi and introduce yourself!
Candice’s classes are all about balance. She has a strong focus on alignment and discipline. She pushes her students to do their best but is also very encouraging. Her discipline will keep you working hard in class and seeing the benefits afterwards. Candice’s yoga tips are: breathe and have fun everything else is optional, everyday is different so let go of your expectations and judgements, experiment and get to know yourself physically, mentally and spiritually.
