一直以来，瑜伽对我而言只是一种保健和减压的运动。每次上瑜伽课只知道跟着老师学习一些体位和舒展的动作，对瑜伽的了解是非常朦胧的。。。直到我上了生活瑜伽的培训课程后，才探讨到原来瑜伽还有这么多奥妙和人所不知道的益处。现在我已能渐渐地体会着瑜伽带给我的正能量，找到了舒缓压力，调节情绪及心灵上 慰藉的 途径，对于感恩，包容，和谐都有了更深度的认识和体会。总之，瑜伽已经悄悄地改变了我的人生，也希望它能陪着我一直走下去。。感恩!
Action speaks louder than words! I feel blessed that I joined Living Yoga and met Mdm Khoo in Dec 2018. I have learnt Yoga and Meditation practices from her in-depth and even though sometimes, the poses may seem challenging, but I am able to overcome the difficulties and enjoy. There is nothing you can’t do! Just do it! I feel so proud of myself when I am able to position my poses beautifully and breathe in the correct way. Now, I am able to jog slightly longer distance without panting. In the past, I cannot even run a 50 metres distance.
I discover that through my Yoga practices I am able to create a balance of lifestyle – physically and mentally through my inner calm, positive energy and perseverance. It makes me a better person spiritually as well!
I do not know what exactly I have done in Yoga that has resulted in such a great change. Maye the teacher was right to say that “You do Yoga for yourself”. Yes, indeed, I do Yoga for myself.
At this very moment, I am very touched, thankful and grateful. I am touched by God’s blessings. I am thankful for the Yoga lessons every Tuesday morning. I am grateful that Yoga has given me a new lease of life.
Yoga lets me appreciate more on the inner value of life and no longer need to pursue external material. I also learn to appreciate and treasure not only my family, but also friends, strangers and even small creatures and insects. It also affects my choice in food, clothing, travel and my home. I no longer envy or pursue branded items. My diet also gradually changes, more on fruits and vegetables rather than meat. I am able to sleep and rest better under most circumstances and wont be influence by external factor. So called change with the environment. Poor posture in daily activity directly affects the physical wellbeing and through yoga I learn the correct posture in daily activity. Although this might be small action but in the long run it has a huge impact towards my life.
I am glad I have learned and understand yoga. This makes my life more fulfilling. Hope more people will have to chance to be in contact with yoga. To understand the positive energy that yoga has and it may be more than you can imagine. Yoga is a whole life learning and understanding and here at Living Yoga I hope we can learn and encourage each other.
