Last Sunday, Living Yoga, Klang had a special guest appearance, that is Deepak to conduct Pranayama and Yoga Dance classes.  Sunday morning is definitely a no-no for me as I have to attend Sunday Mass.  I am still very much the Christian in me even tho ‘they’ says, “Christian will derived from God if they learn Yoga.” Bullshit!

Back to serious business, I told Bee Ling that I will be there for Yoga Dance as a blogger this time :) .     After two Yoga Dance classes with Deepak, I realised I have never like dancing and still is!  I know I have two left feet so let’s save the embarrassment for next time, ya?

As a photographer, I’m trying my best to steal some artistic shot.

*Note:  The following post is heavily spammed with lots of pictures.  Proceed at your own risk.*


My most favourite shot of the day.  Simply love the silhouette!

Being there but not anticipating in the dance is really a drag.  I felt so bored and hot!  I kept looking at the clock. LOL!  The dance movement is not a stranger to me as Deepak has taught us before.  Amazing how I don’t give it a good review this time.   But you know what excite me?  All these awesome photographs!  Love them to bits!

Till then, Namaste!

A notice was paste on the center yesterday.  My vision only focus on the center part of the notice that read… “Pranayama & Yoga Dance”.  Nothing excite me.  I checked the calender on my iPhone, 28th June is a Sunday.  And I goes, “Waitaminute, who is teaching Yoga Dance?!?!” I quick dash to the door again and was scanning the notice from beginning to the end making sure I did not miss out any words this time.

Holy moly!  Deepak is conducting a lesson on Sunday!

I have never like dancing (even thought they are fun) but I will attend the  Pranayama class.  A quick recap on an e-mail which he sent to me few days ago on Pranayama.  I reread the e-mail (on my iPhone) and already knew what he is going to teach this coming Sunday. LOL.  If you are interested, read on.

Subject: pranayama therapy for n1 h1 (halo?  Was it H1 N1?)

“De Ep hi to all my friends ,,these days n1 h1 (halo!  H1 N1 la!) ,, virus is every where,, i will suggest you guys to do pranayama daily for at least half an hour,, specially those pranayama who are giving effect on your manipur chakra,, on the navel and below the navel,, because,, manipur chakra or navel chakra is related to your immune system it is boosting your immune system and specially to agnisara, kapalabhati, and thyroid ,,thymus,,spleen ,, and your bone marrow is also the part of your immune system ,, so ujjayi,,and lion pose,,and uddiyana bandha ,,stomach lock,, are able to give you strong immune system and you will be able to fight with this virus,,plz do this,,thanx and namaste,, god bless you DEEP YOGA”

There ya go.  I don’t know how good a teacher he is but I know he is HOT!  Do come and join the class this Sunday if you are around Klang area.  Drop me a note if only you are really keen of coming so that I can forward to you the center telephone number.  It’s free of course. Not!

At times, small doesn’t necessarily means no good if you look at the brighter side.  Small classes with lesser students gave you all the attention you want from the teacher and at times when situation persist, we are able to do a thing or two not according to the schedule like how in Partner Yoga, we ended up engaging ourselves in Group Yoga.  And the best part of all, the camera started flashing away.


Yoga Pose – Caterpillar (First person going down on Downward Facing Dog and the rest took turn to go down on Half Handstand)

Not a perfect composition from some of us but at least we get the chance to try something new.

This is the time you gotta think big.  When a student like you class, the cash drawer is going to fill up pretty fast.  No?

Last week class was a little different. The formerly quiet and calm lesson burst into an excited buzz. It was like a yoga class had morphed into a cocktail party with camera flashing after we was pairing.

I took the above picture of my kids when I started Yoga sometime in 2007.  It was more of a foreplay and didn’t realised they are one of the asana commonly performed in partner yoga.  This is also my first time doing Partner Yoga and I was very excited about it.  I was telling myself, since I can take the weight of my kids, it shouldn’t be a problem to lift my partner.  Not that they are going to sit on my leg, right!  Lifting them is no biggie.

This is my Yoga Teacher.  The proper way of positioning your feet is to place them at your partner’s groin area.  (AND SUCK THAT ABS IN!!! Thank you.)

Not too bad except when I tried to position my arm forward, the legs started to get woobly.

And now is my turn to go on top.

Teacher is always a teacher right?  This time our hands are parallel with each other like tv stands.  Let me tell you what is the feeling being lifted up there.  Performing Partner Yoga poses builds a very high level of trust on your partner and nothing else. With all confidence and trust, I managed to let go one hand.

I was very near to perfect it with a prayer pose but the non existence of  support really makes a difference!  I was terrified of height!  I was afraid of falling!  I can tell that my legs flew apart and there goes my balancing.

This is just the starting.  We had whole lot of fun and laughter after this.  Will post up more pictures after this post.

Namaste, everyone!

Went for my half yearly followup on the fibroid and it seems that the size has shrink from 33mm to 25mm.  Yay!  And that many, many, cyst has disappear altogether.  Double yay!

When I first found out I have fibroid, I was advise by friends to consume less red meat, and I did.  I was a Flexitarian for almost a year now. If all these diet  is effective, it sure help to stagnant or slow down the growth of the fibroid.  Another food that you should avoid is the ‘Bak Foong Yuen’ mainly consumed by Chinese female after their menses. Some believe it will help the fibroid growth by two fold which is not a good thing.

It is so common nowadays to hear people die of diseases or sickness.  For example the new disease called Swine Flu or the uncommon cancer like mesothelioma.  Now you know why it is so important to eat healthy and live happy.

So much bragging and no picture at all is not my type of blogging, eh?  Everything is almost done at my little private space except for the mirror that need some drilling work to be done by profession just in case some internal wiring is along the way to the AED box .

But after proscracinating for so many months, the mirror is still remained resting against the wall.  So sad isn’t it.

After many donkey months, I realised I kinda like the mirror that way cos in most standing poses, I do not have to bother checking if I my hair is messy. *rofl*

The first picture may fool a lot of you but to tell you the truth, my house is always in a mess especially my workstation.  Who’s don’t anyway?

After seeing my workstation alongside with my inhome yoga sanctuary, you will find them very unappetising right?  What to do!  This is the best that I can do with so limited space.

It is almost 2 months now since I’ve stopped my membership in Chi Fitness.  Changing of yoga center doesn’t means that I have stopped my yoga practise entirely.  I choose to attend classes somewhere nearer to home.  That way, I do not have to waste more time on the road and endure all the freaking jams!

My current place is Living Yoga operated by ex-YZ instructor and she hired majority ex-YZ instructor too :) .  The best thing about going to classes on my very first day is meeting all my old yoga buddy again!   It’s a clique.  Every where she goes, every where they follows.

The down side is I don’t get to enjoy luxury facilities in this new place.  No more steam room, rainforest showerhead, sparkling Delta faucets, more classes to choose, etc.  This new place is kinda comfy for 10 people. Go imagine.

The plus side is $$$.  RM270.00 for 24 classes, validity for 6 months.  Which means one lesson is RM11.00.  Quite affordable and I don’t loose any money for the classes that I don’t go. (I am refering to unlimited package).  This scheme works for me and I likey!  And throughout this 2 months, I’ve only managed to attend 5 classes.  Dang, what is wrong with me!
