Qigong is very aligned with gentle somatic yoga flow, and those wanting to introduce its slow flowing movements into their classes and personal practice.

Loved this training with Mimi Kuo-Demer and would absolutely participate in another one. She is a font of information and professional in her teaching style, and knowledge. Highly recommend any class Mimi teaches.

About Mimi Kuo Deemer

Mimi has been a student of Yoga since 1995 and an avid lover of dance since 1978, when her mother put her in ballet school for walking with turned-in toes. Mimi teaches vinyasa Yoga, qigong and meditation.  She champions the balance of playfulness and precision as the best way forward in practice and in life, and never underestimates how sitting, breathing and conscious movement can provide the clearest perspective on the messy, complex and often predictable job of being human.

Her two main teachers in the Yoga world, Erich Schiffmann and Donna Farhi, continually humble her with the idea that Yoga is the art of living, listening, and learning to embody a deeply spiritual tradition.  Martin Aylward and Mark Coleman, her mindfulness meditation teachers, have helped her remember that it's possible to be present with kindness and care in each moment. Her qigong practice, inspired by her own curiosity and love for Daoism and the Chinese Five Elements, emerged as a complimentary and distinct practice alongside her love of yoga and meditation.  

In 2002, Mimi co-founded Yoga Yard, Beijing’s first and leading Yoga studio, which she co-directed for seven years. She now lives in London, and teaches classes, workshops and retreats in the UK and internationally.  She is a senior teacher at triyoga, and teaches on their two year teacher training diploma course.  She is also a contributor on  

Mimi recently earned a Masters with distinction in Traditions of Yoga and Meditation from SOAS, University of London.  In addition to teaching, she helps run the Glow Fund charitable trust  –  a charity she and her husband established that helps Chinese orphans and Tibetan children with severe orthopaedic conditions receive life-changing operations.
