Thanks x0vashx0

Any additional info is welcomed.

My advice would be to do private lessons in your home, if you have a large enough space. You might be able to use a sports facility or gym at a local school as well if you have a large enough interest. Hefei does have lots of gyms that might offer yoga classes, but they probably can't hire foreigners. You could go to some local gyms and see if they would be willing to pay your girlfriend under the table for teaching yoga classes. However, this could potentially cause legal issues for the gym, so the gym might be hesitant.

1. Probably not, unless its a private practice which gets into tricky legal areas.
2. Probably. Is it popular? No idea. I've never seen any interest by Chinese, but I've also never really asked.
3. Vast majority are university students. Minority are professionals. I guess around 10,000 in total with the vast majority being students from Africa, Middle East, or India, but there aren't any firm statistics.

Hey guys. I am  Mark, moving to Hefei to work as a teacher. I would like some help.

1. My girlfriend is a yoga teacher. Are there any centers that she will be able to work?
2. Is there any interest in yoga classes in Hefei ?  Is it popular?
3. How many expats do they live in Hefei (approximately)

Thanks for helping,
All the best,

Express is what the vast majority use. Like previously said, if you research VPNs a few names will keep popping up. You can also look at https://www.flashrouters.com/ to get an idea of popular VPN services that can be configured on a router. Basically, the VPN services listed are a smorgasbord of the most common ones.

The VPN router is by far the best for a single location.
Available from HefeiConnect.

Express is one of the big names in VPN, but there are others. Most of them are fairly similar in what they offer. It's important they don't keep logs and have a large range of servers and efficient customer service. Use a reputable VPN, not a small, dodgy startup.

The advice in the article you posted can't be trusted because of the "compensated affiliate" disclosure at the bottom. Look around the online reviews in PC MAG etc. and get an idea of which names are frequently mentioned. Then you'll know which ones to go for.

Hefei No. 1 has American students. Granted, they're dual passport holders, but the point still stands. I can't speak for No. 6 or No. 8.

Also, I thought Ru'An was Korean? Aren't most of the students there Korean?

The school with the largest foreign passport holder population is the Canadian School. That is true.

Yes they have international programs but they are not international schools.
