This yogi is also a musical prodigy. Alex Lam, whose father is veteran pop singer George Lam, taught yoga before turning to entertainment and trying his hand at acting. The wiry influencer’s love of yoga runs deep, as his images on Instagram demonstrate.


What got you into fitness and yoga?

Actually, my mum. She brought me to my first class and bought me my first month’s membership as a way to encourage me to be healthy and happy.

The one I use the most is Instagram but I tune the colours myself.
