When she was 7, she took up gymnastics, trained hard from morning till night, went for many competitions, won some and lost some. One day she stopped because it became too stressful, it took up too much of her time and she couldn’t keep up with school work. But her love for sports never stops. She then took up netball, swimming, volleyball, dodge ball, captain ball, cheerleading, cycling, surfing, track and field, every sport you can ever think of. Being a gymnast as her background had really benefited her a lot. She had never regretted taking up gymnastics.
Her passion for yoga started when she saw lots of people doing cool yoga poses on Instagram. She admires them a lot, and tried to attempt some poses. Some was successful but some was also not easy. Her mum was also into yoga, and bought a lot of CDs to practice at home. Sometimes she will also take the CDs and give it a go. It was fun! Challenging! She has never been to any actual yoga classes but that’s not the end. During her holidays, she went to Australia for a month alone, staying with her relatives. She was searching around for things to do, and she found a great deal for 2 unlimited weeks of Yoga and Pilates classes. Every day she took the tram and trains to reach the studio. Attending different type of yoga classes. The people there are so nice, so friendly and her love for yoga grew even more. Her mum also knew that she was in love with yoga. She started helping her find for yoga classes and also Yoga Courses. One day, she saw this 200hr Teacher Training Course, and went for it. It was the best decision ever, she had learned so much, about how yoga came about, about herself, and how to teach yoga.
She would like to thank Iryne and R2 for being such patient, caring and awesome yoga teachers that put so much time and effort on making the teacher training course a success. Would never be where she is today without their help.
To her, yoga is all about self-awareness, loving yourself, and living a happy life.
Although she just started practicing yoga for less than a year, she realized the amount of benefits yoga brings to a person. It helped her recover from her injuries, become stronger, more flexible, and fearless. It also teaches her to live her life the fullest, by being calm and happy.
Her goal is to practice more yoga, to never stop learning, be happy and share yoga with everyone and anyone. She have always live to this quote “You do not find the happy life, you make it” – Thomas S Monson. Stop waiting for something to happen and make the most of the moment you are in now.
