Why Yoga?

7th year journeying with you. In 2012, I step into my first Beginners Class in Pacific Plaza, it was merely to pick up a new hobby or “try something new” during a low point in my life. I thought it could be a good distraction as I was trying to occupy myself, hence seeking yoga as a safe space to wrestle with my emotions. Now thinking back, I am glad I took that first step to explore Yoga as it has changed my life and kept me sane all these years.

My favorite go to class has always been hot class, the hotter the better! I love it especially after a intense hot class where you look down on your yoga mat and find a pool of sweat. Being in a corporate world, my diet hasn’t been the most healthy – late nights, junk food in the office desk, irregular meals and quick fix fast food. Needless to mention the stress and anxiety bits. Thankfully for Yoga, I find balance in my body physically, mentally and emotionally.

Yoga to me is a reminder self-love, to take control of yourself and to take back your power to invest time in yourself. People who knows me best would say I am always too hard on myself, however over the years Yoga has taught me to be kinder to myself. It has taught me to forgive myself for the mistakes I have made and for the past I live inside of me. It has taught me to let go of the things easily in order to heal, to grow and to survive. It has taught me to fall in love with the imperfect process and the constant changes, as well as the beauty of screwing things up and making mistake of becoming who I am. It has taught me to to find love in places that were once void of, in places within myself I could have been softer to.

Thank you for keeping me sane, so glad I found you.
