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!

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! 😉😉
