YOGA SEEDS - my First Yoga lesson!

Since the beginning of this new decade, I resigned from my long-time employment as a nurse in KK Hospital.
It would have been my ninth year there, it was a love-hate relationship I had with my work.
I used to enjoy what I did, until there came a point where I was constantly asking myself if that was what I would be doing for the rest of my life. My answer was No.
If I didn't need the money, would I still be working there? No.
In ten years, do I see myself still working there? No.

I decided to resign. With no plans.
I was scared, terrified. But I knew I had to do it for goodness' sake. LOL
I needed to take a break to find my feet again, to find my directions.

My farewell party on my last day:

Sad to leave my colleagues behind but there, I am finally free!

There were many things I always wanted to try but couldn't find the time when I was working full-time.
One of them is YOGA.
Even though I held an 8-to-5 job in KKH, evenings were a mad rush for me to rush home, make sure my kids have dinner, playground time, shower, finish up any pending homework which they need help in, prepare for the next day's school / CCA/ tuition if any etc etc, it was like learning how to fly a plane in 2 hours.
My day-to-day life was so mad hectic/ mundane/stressful/rushed and I absolutely RESENTED it.

SO NOW, I can finally start on learning something new - learning Yoga at YOGA SEEDS.

Yay to Phase 2 of Circuit Breaker~!

Located at Bishan Park, a north-central location, it was quite easy for us to get there.

: 1384 Ang Mo Kio Ave 1, Singapore 569932.
Head to Bishan Park CARPARK A.
Once you are in the carpark, head left all the way past Aramsa Garden Spa and The Bund and you will find Yoga Seeds.

Welcome to the Shala :)
The class was live-streamed for members who wanted to practice in the comfort of their own homes.

Our cui faces after class :P

If you're new to yoga like me, here's a chart for easy reference on which types of Yoga is beginner-friendly.
Some house rules in Phase 2 of Circuit Breaker:

Our instructor for today's Hatha class, Melody, was very friendly and helpful in teaching us how to adjust our postures.
She also gave alternative poses if we could not achieve what the advanced yogis could.
It made newbies like hubby & me felt at ease and not at a loss of what to do like when I did Zumba for the first time - my hands-feet-eye-coordination was all over the place!

If you're unsure where / how to start with your Yoga journey, Yoga Seeds has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for newcomers.
I highly recommend you to check out Yoga Seeds on their website!
Class schedules can be found here.

We will be back for more lessons for sure!
Thank you Melody, Wendy and Vic from Yoga Seeds for this wonderful opportunity :)
