hi guys.
i have not written this blog post in English for a while
so here it goes.

There has been a lot going on in my life.

my father and so on.
But in the difficult moments, i was saved by the light of
friends, families, teachers.

the light is there.
and it will always be there.
you just need to let it in.

I’m very fortunate to be where i am now.

10/21 – 5:2 Diet / Took Alessia’s Class

標準

Today is my first attempt of the 5:2 Diet.
You may wonder if i need to be on a diet,
but after having issues with my kidney stones,
i thought it might be good to cleans once in a while
with mild fasting.

So i heard about this diet from Emma and seemed quite interesting. After all, Yogis love to try out new things. 🙂

started the day with some water,
and went to Indaba to take a class with Alessia.

but soy yoghurt, Sharon-ji’s favourite vegan cheese, some veggies, and few snacks.

Im so grateful i was able to teach at the studio.
so much gratitude to Petros, Gabriela, Antje, all the teachers and staffs at the center you made me feel at home and you cared so much. I can’t thank you enough. Also all the students who supported me and had the open heart to come check out the classes from a guest teacher.

without all of you, i would not be here in this part of the world.
