When I was in kindergarten, we were encouraged to choose some hobby to study before entering the long student life. Two of my good friends chose dance which I thought was really a fancy hobby. However, I was told I was not flexible enough so my Mom helped me pick painting. By the end of Art school semester, I saw my friends dancing on the stage and my painting was put up somewhere in the school building for exhibition. As a child, I really wished that I could be on the stage one day yet I felt I was marked as “not a dancer material”.
Growing up to be a teenager, I was introduced to Yoga for the first time and my first impression is that this sport is for everyone and not based on individual’s physical strength. That’s where I gained my confidence in practicing a physical exercise which helps to build a nice figure, a healthy mind and body.
Since then, I have been a yoga fan and attended classes once a while. To be honest, I have not made Yoga a routine due to my work commitment. Even though, I practiced the mindset of Yoga at work and in life. The biggest lesson Yoga has taught me: Don’t compare yourself to others, and just get better each day.”
