In Conversation with Wellness Coach, Viv Kan
- Audrey Sze
We sit down with corporate wellness coach, founder and yogi Viv on her current projects, wellness, and beauty rituals and how she stays grounded in a city that never stops moving.
On her journey into the world of wellness
Never would I thought that I would be in the wellness industry. Growing up, I despised exercise, ate loads of processed foods, and didn’t put on moisturizer. I used to be a smoker, drink loads of alcohol, and had terrible sleep. It took YEARS for me to transition to how I am today. Most people don’t see the tiny micro-steps of change that people do for so many years to get to where they are - it’s simply a constant work in progress.
On her wellness rituals
Sleep 8-9 hours, meditation, deep breathing, cold showers, oil pulling, warm lemon and turmeric water, green juice, probiotics, yoga, weight training, deep connections, podcasts, and good quality bed sheets.
On her current inspiration
All the boss babes around me!
On moving to Hong Kong
Best decision ever made.
On who she most admires
People who take risks and don’t regret it.
What a perfect Sunday looks like
My complete morning ritual.
Leading a meditation or yoga class.
Out in the sun, by the water.
A fabulous homemade meal.
On her plans for the future
Live and work from anywhere in the world and travel with whoever I’m with.
Favorite places to visit
Bali, Koh Phangan, Florence
Face mask twice a week.
Toner with frankincense.

A big visor when in the sun.
Her most treasured possession
I actually consider myself a minimalist and try to detach myself from possessions. If I had to choose, I’d consider a self-possession, which would be my ability to conduct public speaking - one of the most feared things in the world.
Words she lives by.
Go with the flow and stay mindful along the way.
