Happy International Yoga Day

“Yoga is an invaluable gift from our ancient tradition. Yoga embodies unity of mind and body, thought and action ... a holistic approach [that] is valuable to our health and our well-being. Yoga is not just about exercise; it is a way to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature.”

- Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi -

There is something really magical about yoga, wouldn't you agree? I've always found inner peace and calm at the end of the yoga class no matter how chaotic my life felt. Especially savasana (or final relaxation pose) was always the best part! We carry so much tension in our body whether it be from sitting in front of screen or driving. If we don't have skills to consciously let it go, we will keep accumulating it in our body. Physical stress will also affect our mental and emotional states, as they are all interrelated. Once we feel relaxed in our body, our mind and heart relax as well. I feel yoga practice allows me to be more in tune with myself so I can be more in tune with others around me. Over the years, I have been emphasising on the importance of daily practice. Not just going to a yoga class once a week or attending a workshop once a month but make it a part of your daily ritual. There is always more power in what we do everyday rather than what we do every once in a while. So I have been thinking of ways to support your home practice, and what I came up with is to make audio contents available. This way, I can continue supporting your practice no matter where I am or where you are in the world! So here they are, the first few audio contents available for online purchase if you wanted to stay connected with me this way. Watch this space, the more in creation as we speak!
