Welcome to the STAR team!
Where are you from and how long have you been practicing yoga?
I am originally from the Phillipines, I started practicing yoga in 2015 and teaching from 2018. I used to teach part-time for a couple of yoga studios in the area (Moon Yoga, Zenith Yoga, Om Factory) and Chung Dahm Kindergarten.
What is it that you love about yoga?
I started yoga with only 1 goal - to be able to touch my toes! After a few months of practice, I realized that it could do so much more for me. Yoga helps me manage my asthma and it helped some of my friends with depression. Over the years , I have witnessed many people improve their mobility and quality of life.
I also love yoga because it makes me soft and tough both at the same time. It has taught me how to let go of stress.
A non-yoga fact about yourself:
I don't like cooking. I only know how to cook 1 Filipino dish!
