500-hours Yoga Teacher Training Completed

The journey was very intense, but yet interesting. I realised there is a lot of sadness, guilt and crave underneath my anger. This is very new and strange for me to see this part of me.

To be honest, it wasn’t an easy or pleasant experience to take care of these emotions. However, I am very grateful, because it allows me to understand myself on a deeper level.

I am forever thankful for my teacher and my new TT buddies, all your support and sincerity made me realise how important it is to be honest to myself. I will always keep that in mind in order to stay close to my true self. I have to be aware of my action and the intention behind.

The training is now completed; my vacation is finished. Back in Norway I started to feel empty and lost again, anger and self-hatred arises, I blamed myself for not being “better or smarter”. Right away “Forgive Myself” popped up in my mind, one of the advice from my teacher in this training, I decided to write it down, keep it in my wallet as a reminder, and immediately I feel relieved.

Even though the training is now completed, I know that there is a lot more to learn in my life. I will walk this journey with an open-handed attitude.

The light and the darkness...

It's been exactly one year since I started to teach yoga in Norway.

Moving away from my home city, friends and family, getting a new life and teaching yoga for living, I struggled a lot both emotionally and mentally. (You have no idea how many times I yell and think about giving up and go back Hong Kong :P) It was a big challenge of my life!

However, thank you for this "uneasy" journey, I am able to see the darkness, a.k.a self-doubt, fear and insecurity more and more. I was first trying to find a way to get the darkness away but later on, I realised to fully accept them is the only way. I understood they are here to remind me to trust and listen to myself but not to push me down. I also learned to appreciate the light and also accept the dark.

I am forever grateful for this journey and without you guys it will never happen. Thank you so much for those who practised with me in Stavanger and Hot Yoga Sola, thank you for all your help, trust and support.

Special thanks for Lise from Hot Yoga Sola for offering a chance to teach in such a beautiful and cozy studio; Energiverkstedet Connie Hvidberg Norup for renting out 44 kongsgata and always offering help and support.

Without you guys, I will never be able to stay in Norway and continued my teaching. I look forward to see/practice with you anytime and again, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Happiness is....having a cup of coffee 

Went to my favourite place to grab a coffee as usual, when I took the first sip of the coffee, and it’s not only taste like coffee because....
I taste joy;
I taste the smile from the waitress;
I taste the hard work of her;
I taste our nice conversation in the past;
I taste the time when I have coffee with friends;
I taste stavanger;
I taste a lot of good “ingredients” inside of it which made me feel so grateful of this coffee and made a good start of my week ❤️😊 I wish you a good week too, stay warm and remember happiness is always around, we just have to “taste” it more mindfully 🤗

The magic moment, wonderful moment.

It’s almost the end of the year, looking back to this year, there were so much going on. I moved to a new country, starting up my own yoga business, living away from friends and family; nothing was easy to me. I started to complain more and more, and it got harder for me to feel happy. No one like to be a complaining person, the more I complain, the more I judge myself complaining all the time. What a big struggle!

Few days ago, I was wondering why am I not easy to feel happy. I reflected myself with mindfulness, a non-judgemental way with openness. I realised it’s my habitual energy that I am not easily feel happy, I focus a lot on what I don’t have rather than what I have, meanwhile, I don’t feel grateful of what I have.

Instead of blaming myself not to feel grateful and happy all the time, I chose to make a new change this time. I realised it takes time to cultivate gratitude so I took this Magic book (which I have it for awhile but never started) out and started the gratitude practices from the book.

Today is Day 3 of 28 days gratitude practice, and I feel so much happier since I started this practice, I realised I have way more than I thought and I focus more to be grateful of what I have instead of complaining of what I don’t have. It’s such an amazing feeling which I haven’t felt for such a long time.

What I want to share is, sometime we think we can always work harder, do better to achieve what we want, by having what we want, we can be happy. As a result, we always push ourselves too hard and forget that we have enough. Happiness is just here and now, what we have to do is we have to look at it, to be grateful for it.

I am more than happy to share this practice with you, so if you would like to make some magical change for your life, feel free to pm/email me and I will send you the practice each day, and 28 days in total! No matter I know you or not, It’s my pleasure to share with you :) 

Thank you, thank you, thank you! 

I am a yoga teacher and I have anger issue...


Whenever I tell people about my anger issues, most of them couldn't believe it. I know from how I look, the way I talk and smile, also as a yoga teacher, It seems like I will never be angry.

The Fact is....Yes! A Big Yes! I easily feel angry, I had anger issues for a long period of time. I felt angry very often, sometimes I didn't know why. I felt weak and shame of being angry, then I pushed my anger away and pretended I am completely fine. However, the more I pushed my anger away, the stronger they become...

Thank you for my first Yoga teacher training and Master Thich Nhat Hanh, I learned that it's okay to be angry, it's nothing wrong to feel angry. Our anger is just like a crying baby, what we have to do is to take care of it.

The more I take care and look into my anger, the less my anger manifest and the most valuable thing is I got to understand my feelings, the reason why I feel angry and myself way better which created a big change to my life, especially relationship with my loved one.

I am writing this post to let you know you are not alone. It's okay to be sad, angry or feeling negative, our emotions are neither good nor bad, all we have to do is to take care of it. Let's practice & grow together! 😉😉

Guided Sitting Meditation For Beginners

"Sitting meditation is very healing. We realize we can just be with whatever is within us- our pain, anger, and irritation, or our joy, love, and peace. We are with whatever is there without being carried away by it. Let it come, let it stay, then let it go. No need to push, to oppress, or to pretend our thoughts are not there. Observe the thoughts and images of our mind with an accepting and loving eye. We are free to be still and calm despite the storms that might arise in us."


-The goal of meditation is not about control your thought, it's to stop letting them control you.-.png
Sitting meditation is like returning home to give full attention to and care for our self. 

— Plum Village
  1. Find a comfortable sitting position, you can choose to sit in crossed legs or sit like a Japanese. If you found it hard to sit with your spine straight, feel free to sit on a block or pillow or a fold blanket to allow your pelvis tilt forward and lower down your knees.
  2. You can close your eye or keep your eyes open, focus on one steady point in front of you and soften your eyes gaze.
  3. Let go of your expectation, idea or experiences how meditation should be.
  4. Take couple deep breaths to relax your body and mind, by inhaling slowly through your nose and then exhaling out your mouth. After a few cleansing breaths, continue to breathe at a normal relaxed pace through your nose with your lips gently closed.
  5. Then, put your full awareness on your belly or belly button. Observe how your belly raises when you inhale; how it falls when you exhale without any judgement. 
  6. Don't try to stop your thought or force yourself to stay calm. Always remember meditation is not about "not thinking" or "being calm", it's indeed a process of us being aware of your thought, emotions, even distraction. So you have to be prepared you might think a lot! It's really okay if you are distracted, when you caught yourself distracted, just simply remind yourself to come back to your breathing point (belly or belly button).
  7. Practice, Practice, and Practice! The benefits of meditation are greatest when practiced daily, even a few minutes of daily meditation is beneficial. Start with whatever amount of time you can, and slowly build your way to 20 to 30 minutes. 


What to do when we are suffering: Simple Steps to Take Care of Our Emotions


It’s Okay To Have Negative Emotions

For more than 20 years, I used to deny my “negative emotions” because I thought it defines me as a weak, shameful, pathetic person. I have tried different approach to keep myself positive but none of it work on me. However, later I have found that by denying my emotions, I am also denying myself, which means I have never accepted myself truly and unconditionally.

According to my teacher, our emotions itself is neither good or bad. It is the language of our souls, the tools that our souls communicate with us. To create balance for our life and heal ourselves, we first need to take care of our emotions.


Reasons Of Taking Care Of Our Emotions

Have you been angry and said something you didn’t really meant to? Have you been hurt so bad that you are not able to feel anymore? Resisting our feelings causes them to simmer and intensify while compressing our emotions will turn us to numbness; both ways are disconnecting us to our souls.

Holding our suffering, looking deeply into it, we find a way to happiness.
— Thich Nhat Hanh

In Buddhism, suffering is a must for self-transformation. When we intend to feel our emotions rather than resisting it, we create more space for our bodies and also our minds. Once our negative emotions are no longer controlling us, we are able to look deeper and discover the seeds (cause) of suffering. As a result, we learn to transform it into peace and happiness.


Simple Steps For Taking Care Of Your Negative Emotion(s)

1.       Find a comfortable position, sit down or lie down are both fine.

2.       Close your eyes, check how do you feel at the moment without any judgment.

3.       Allow yourself to feel your emotion(s) and recognize the area you feel it the most.

4.       Start to breathe particularly to the area you feel your emotion(s) the most.

5.       Consciously breathing to that area; when you feel ready, simply talk to your emotions                       (silently) by saying, “Hello (anger/sadness/anxiety/jealousy, etc), it’s ok that you are here and I           am here taking care of you, let’s breathe together”

6.       Keep breathing until you feel relief.

The Journey to Self-Acceptance with My Stiff Body

“I’m not flexible, will I be able to do yoga?” The most common yoga question I ever heard. The answer is “Yes”, a BIG “Yes”. Of cause you are able to do yoga, yoga is for everyone.

A lot of people think they have to be flexible in order to do yoga, some people feel stressful and awkward in group classes where they can see very flexible people (advanced practitioner or naturally flexible). They feel shame when they are not able to touch their toes in forward bend. However, believe it or not, stiffness could be a blessing for our body to prevent us to over stretch ourselves.

After studying Yoga Anatomy, I understood more about body’s limitation of movement because of body proportion, bones, joints etc. I realized that neither being stiff or being flexible is perfect. Non-flexible people might found it very difficult to do various yoga poses while flexible people are easily over-stretch and lead to serious injury due to lack of body sensation.

In fact, stiffness is also a blessing on practicing self-acceptance. In a period of time I hated to go to yoga classes. Because I felt so upset whenever I see teachers or people who can easily make “perfect” yoga poses. I blamed myself and I forced myself to practice even I had injury in order to master those perfect poses. As a result, I never became “perfect” but ironically my injury became more serious.

I also realized I have never accepted who I am in the past. I always see perfection in others but being judgmental to myself. I see being stiff as a sin, I see imperfection of myself as a shame which is not true, totally wrong indeed. 

I believe our number one priority in our life is to love ourselves. In order to spread our love to others we first have to love ourselves. To love ourselves fully we first need to accept ourselves unconditionally. Accepting your imperfections is a primary approach of self-acceptance. Let’s be imperfect and grow together on and off the mats! Have a nice day :)
