I get by with a little help from my friends: Weiying

It seems a little fitting to close this chapter of my yoga journey by mentioning the people in it. These are
the people that continue to inspire me, make me look forward to class every weekend, and are a definitive
component of my growth.


I have likened each of them to an asana. 


Shiqi – Vrikshasana (Tree Pose)

Stands up tall, but very grounded. Provides respite for anyone who comes her way.


Mabel – Uttana Shishosana (Extended Puppy Pose) 

This is an asana we would relish in after a series of painful sequences, because it releases whatever tension
we were holding prior. An asana just like Mabsy. 


Kim – Astavakrasana (Eight Angle Pose)

I don’t think anyone in our class can talk about Kim without mentioning her lovely arms. Just looking at her
biceps inspires us all to be stronger. Of course, on a more personal level, she is one of the first people I made friends
with, the both of us sitting opposite each other on the first day of class. The groundedness in her rubs off on me, and
I always find myself comforted by her presence.


Jiamin – Vikasita Kamalasana (Blossoming Lotus Pose)

A flower that never stops blooming, a spirit that never stops kindling. 


Phyllis – Camatkarasana (Wild Thing)

Shining her heart outwards for everyone, a kind being who spreads lots of good vibes.


Shuyan – Garudasana (Eagle Pose)

A strong and powerful force wrapped in an elegant and compact figure.


Sue – Adho Mukha Vrksasana (Handstand)

Sue was one of the first to get into the pose; she was always fearless,
taking a leap of faith every time she attempted this inversion. 


Jessica – Natarajasana (Lord of the Dance Pose)

Always embracing us with her generosity, love and beauty. Jess has managed to create a fun and safe space for us.


Alexis – Virabhadrasana I (Warrior I)

An impenetrable fortress, silently keeping vigil and always picking up the slack whenever the chips are down. 


I feel fortunate to learn with, and from, these people. Thank you Yoga Mandala.
