Moving Forward! Start a journey to a Yogi Lifestyle – 1 The Start.

Having been working with the desktop for more than three decades, started to realized severe soreness all over from a Migraine, stiff shoulder, lower back, hip bone.

I wasn’t sure where’s goes wrong. Couldn’t even tell whether the soreness came out from bone, muscles, ligaments or nerves. Feeling more like the bone is the culprit as if like it has had not enough strength to support the whole body’s weight. Can imagine how clumsy I was with the big fat tummy which I almost changed full closet of clothes to XXL (my daughter said, it’s “Perth Ladies Size”).

Switching from clinic to clinic, from doctors to doctors, signing up packages of commercial massage programmes after programmes, swapping from chiropractic to chiropractic, countless X-Ray showing the bone crack and old injuries reminding me from those “hiking” “mountaineering” “Scuba Diving” age and countless “carrying babies” nights. None of these fully heal me from suffering. Eventually swopping from yoga classes to yoga classes with some hands-on experiences, I decided to settle down my mind to learn yoga in a much organized and systematic logic.

Initiated a thought to search for one that allows me to have an overview of different types of Yoga happening in the market, here I m, with Tirisula Yoga, learning actively from Master Paalu, Wei Ling, and Sri.

Here I go, enjoying the classes in a joyful environment, picking up bit by bit daily, stretch out slowly at a comfortable pace.

Moving Forward! Start a journey to a Yogi Lifestyle – 2 The ASANA

Yoga is a lifestyle,
Yoga is an ancient wisdom,
Yoga is a science that leading us to achieve the area where scientist not able to explain.

Leading a simple lifestyle, healthily, happily, is a most precious gift and greatest asset I received at the retiring age.

Started to be able to build up some strength, jumping forward backward until blisters all over my little toes, twisting my clumsy body to an awkward shape, till able to see the world upside down.

Daily Stretching soothes off the killing neck and lower back soreness.

Challenging and greatest satisfaction arises, ah ~~~ all of at once that moment opened up in my heart and suddenly non-controllable laughing out loud during the class, when I discovered myself secretly, still being able to reach a certain level of flexibility compared with some younger age.

A little consolation prize strike. Though Master Paalu was puzzled if I was possessed by some spirit since now is the Lunar Seventh Moon.

Moving Forward! Start a journey to a Yogi Lifestyle – 3 BANDHA!

Wei Ling taught us the bandha.

Master Paalu made it as our homework.

I didn’t do it that day.

I was too exhausted for the start at the beginning and the next moment I reached home, I slept all way till next morning and drag my body to the class again.

Master Paalu reminded us to do this Bandha again.

“what so fun and what so good to play with the sucking and holding of our inner tummy” initially I thought. Only children will like to show off and play with that.

Then, in order to clock the 20 hours Teaching Practical at Home, I pull my husband to do this Bandha. Ended up, both of us rush to the toilets 5 times within that 3 hours. The last time was yellow and orange color.  My girl was giggling.

Many times, my little girl loves to tease me and giggle over my “hot air balloon”, that I had accumulated the “internal force” with all kinds of buffet foods for more than 20 years.

After reducing the size of this “balloon”, immediately I rush all the way back to the old closets and pull out my L size old cloths, including that 3 “Shanghai Cheong-Sam” that I had collected from Taobao over the stupid “online-order-crazy-times” and squeeze them all into the washing machine. Pressed 2 buttons. “On”, “Start”, walk away, go sleep.

Highly recommended, Sign up for the daily course. It’s only 3 weeks efforts.

Moving Forward! Start a journey to a Yogi Lifestyle – 4  The Theory

Love the theory part, not so much that I like to read now, but so relax and easy that someone there talk and I listen, the science, the philosophy, the art, and the stories.

I had already much forgotten to recall exactly how many years from the day I enjoy listening to the teacher’s classroom teaching.

It’s back to my old golden days.

After all, after reading for so many years, my eye sights getting bad. Just packed up all my books into 26 cartons of boxes while preparing to move them to another location.

After this course, I think, likely will start collecting and pick up again, books on the Yoga’s title.

It’s pleasant reading on the Yoga Sutra, though initially having difficulties and hard time stirring my tongues over the Sanskrit words and trying to figure out what’s the meaning by reading the long explanation inside the manual, which eventually made me more confused.

Lucky enough, I managed to find and organized from the internet.
Well, IF, I meant “IF”, If I have the time, likely will add on to it’s German and Chinese or even other languages translation at my leisure if I can find it.

Here share if you need.

Here go we happy Journey to Yoga Lifestyle.
