George wang

George is a Tibetan Buddhist practitioner and a yoga teacher from Canada. Over the past several years he has spent a lot of time in India studying the Dharma and learning yoga. George first encountered Buddhism briefly in university where he studied Cognitive Science & Artificial Intelligence. Years later he started his exploration into Buddhism with the Korean Zen tradition before switching over to a more philosophical Tibetan approach. 

George was first introduced to yoga at the Zen temple in Toronto where he learned basic sitting postures, breathing techniques, and pre-meditation stretching techniques. During his travels in India, he was introduced to Ashtanga yoga by a friend in Rishikesh.

After meeting and being inspired by Annie McGhee at the Root Institute, he began to develop a very dedicated yoga practice and became a certified yoga shortly after. He currently teaches sunset yoga sessions at the Root Institutes and will be hosting several retreats throughout the season.
