Its been 2 years since i joined yoga classes. sometimes i think, if i were a teenager i think 2 years is more than enough to master in all the yoga poses and my body would be very flexible. however, i am not like that =(
i learn yoga not because i want to master in all the poses, nor i want to take part in any competition. its just merely i enjoy it very much. Taiping doesnt have any big fitness center and there's no grand shopping complexes too. so you can roughly imagine there is actually not much entertainment/activities we can engage in. its just about work-home-work-home (well, for me la..)
so its good to join those yoga classes available. as far as i know, there are about 4 places here which offers yoga. i always stick to Meizi as i think its quite good and the best part is, it has a combination of aerobics and yoga in certain classes. this certainly helps me in sweating more = burning more calories = losing weight = happier me!!! :D
but i heard Susan(Meizi's instructor) mentioned that yoga dont really helps in losing alot of weight. it is more focus on adjusting our body postures, massaging our muscles/inner organs and the most important function - relaxation, which is really good for me! sometimes there's just too much pressure/tension from work/life we really need to learn how to release them.
headstand, scorpion, ashtanga pose
i think its going to take forever for me to learn these.. or in my next life may be. ha!
anyway these are some of the poses we always practice:
