In my early twenties, I undergo a struggle of never ending questions and dilemma. What is the purpose of life? What can life offer to her? Is there a correct way to live? I look at the people around me and ask myself is life all that it is? I feel that there is going to be more to life than the rat race, working and consuming. Not that eight-to-five is a bad thing but at that point of time, I find myself a misfit.
So I start looking for her answers. My journey brings me to New Zealand, Thailand, Taiwan, Japan and some other countries. I face rejection and judgment with my choice of lifestyle. But I continue my search for my answers. A few years searching, a few heartbreaks and a bucket of tears, I found myself looking at things in new perspective. Clearer and closer to life.
The questions to life is not “what can life offer to me?” but “what is the world asking of me?”
My answer is in yoga and belly dance. These two practices empower the practitioners to accept themselves, promote self-love, listen to their bodies and connect deeper to their selves. By promoting these two practices, I hope that the practice could encourage one to go beyond one self and flows into compassion and love for other beings and our environment.
I have a lofty dream: through belly dance and yoga, I want to spread the awareness on living harmoniously with the our interconnected and intricate world and also to tell people how beautiful they really are.
