Yoga is LIT

“Yoga is a lifestyle. Do not refine your life for yoga, but let yoga refine your life” – Master Sree. I wish I could put into words to show how much this statement has increasingly held true in my life, over the course of consistent yoga practice for a month

YTT: My 200 Hour Leap Of Faith

“What if I fall?” “Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?” A year ago, if you told me I’m going to spend an entire month waking up daily at 6:15am to travel to Paya Lebar for 5 hours of yoga, I wouldn’t have believed you. Fast forward to today:

My God and Yoga

Yoga has always been for me stretches and strengthening exercises since I have never been a sporty person since young. It is one exercise which I can do at my own pace, guided or not, without being self conscientious. However, few Christian friends have been against it, telling me that
