Time flies, Sense Yoga studio celebrated its 3rd anniversary last week! If you remember I blogged about its grand opening HERE.
Well well, if you are still blurred, I do yoga weekly and Sense Yoga studio is the place I practice my yoga postures.
Anyway, I always thought this is their 2nd anniversary since the grand opening is in 2011 but according to them it's already the 3rd year. Hmm may be they count from the year when the owner took over the studio, which was in 2010 I suppose.
But that's not important, what I wanna share today is some photos taken in the studio in conjunction with the celebration.
Lovely fondant cake baked by my Yoga instructor Susan. So cuteeee don't you think? She is not only good in yoga but in baking as well, so talented!!
With some of the yoga members
And here're some commonly seen yoga postures which I think everyone can do, they are good in giving you toner muscle and slimmer silhouette.
Oh ya, don't doubt, that's me, I wear glasses during yoga, I am used to it already ;) (Actually the main reason is I am lazy to wear contact lens la, teehee)Note: I am not very familiar with certain postures names though :p
The forward bend
The tree pose
Erm 你可能觉得戴着眼镜做运动很不方便不过我已经习惯了，呵呵~ （其实我是懒惰戴隐性眼镜啦！之前阿有试过戴隐性眼镜做瑜伽结果汗水流进眼睛，哇眼睛超不舒服的！所以干脆戴眼镜好了，呵呵~）
Warrior 3 pose
The fish pose
The camel pose
The downward-facing dog pose
The bridge pose
The shoulder-stand pose
All of the postures stretch our whole body without us realizing, the arms, belly, thighs and hips, parts that everyone wanted to tone. You can try doing these at home, step by step, soon, you can kiss your flabby arms, 'spare tyre', elephant thighs and big hips good bye ;)
Of course, it takes time, you just have to be patient and determined.
And here's my instructor Susan doing some of the postures which I hope I can do as well!!
I have been doing yoga for more than 6 years and I am loving it to bits. Though sometimes I am very tired, I make sure I don't skip the class for no apparent reason.
There're different types of yoga and every type helps in many ways, physically, mentally and spiritually. It focuses on breathing (deep inhale and long exhale), calms our mind, alleviates certain health problems, reduces stress, correct our standing/sitting postures and is a beneficial form of exercise which tones our body muscles.
That's all for today, thanks for reading!
(Namaste is the common spoken salutation in India, we say this everytime when the class ends, by pressing our palms together in front of the chest (just like the praying gesture), and bow slightly forward)
