It may sound weird, but I was recommended to yoga by a geomancy master about ten years ago. He believed that yoga’s calming effects would be helpful to me in ensuring a smooth life journey ahead… (I doubt he practise yoga himself, though.) The image of a white-haired guru meditating in a lotus pose came into my mind and it wasn’t very attractive to me then.
The surge of popularity of yoga finally pulled me in, with the help of those loud and continuous publicity of the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
Out of proximity convenience, I embarked on Hatha yoga for a try, and it became a weekly routine. As time passed, I gradually realised that an old muscle problem of mine was gone! Better sleep, calmer temper, greater patience,…. all were happening! I felt so very grateful to my dedicated yoga teacher and, of course, that geomancy master who planted the seed of yoga in me.
Having benefitted so much from yoga practice, I thought it was time to share my personal experience with others and help those in such need. And it would only be more convincing if I do it as a yoga teacher.
So, here I am, in the YTT course 2019!
