I started to learn yoga when I was 13 and it was my mom who encouraged me to join the Super Yoga Kids program. Initially, I joined because of my mother but as the months went by, I began to enjoy seeing my own progress with the asanas (yoga postures). Besides having a better knowledge of my strength and flexibility, I have also become calmer through yoga.
After graduating from Super Yoga Kids, I continued my yoga training with Master Mani and learned Kriya Yoga, which to me are mental practices that highly benefit disciplined individuals. I have also since completed the IYIC Level 1. The good news is I’ll be teaching yoga next semester. Our yoga style is so much different than the Health Center Coordinator wants me to teach the yoga classes. Those in the camps are more like fitness classes. Thank you, mom, for sending me to yoga classes. This job can really beef up my resume and help me make some friends as well.
