“Standing on the Shoulder of Giants”


It has been an amazing journey. There is no better group of people I would have asked for to experience this short 3 months, 2 days a week, 6 hours a day with. So for my last post, I would like to write something about them.



Your first class blew my mind away! In fact, I can safely say you blew everyone’s mind away. You were so composed, so confident and so sure in every movement, every adjustment and every instruction you gave. You are born to be an instructor!



I was pleasantly surprised when one day you suggested us to switch our usual places around. It takes a lot of courage for one to step out of their comfort zone and I absolutely admire you for that. Thank you for always being the first one to lead the class. Thank you for trying out my cardio class. Thank you for being you and keep that signature frown!



You are an inspiration! Your enthusiasm, constantly pushing yourself to be better physically and mentally. You always have words of encouragement and compliment for whoever needs it. In you, I found my own strength in my practice. In you, I found don’t give up and neglect areas I am not good at. Continue to shine and never ever let that fire burn out.



From never done a teddy bear to doing a beautiful Astavakrasana, you are a testimonial of how much one can improve in such a short period of time if you put your mind to it. Witnessing you having breakthrough after breakthrough is so encouraging. The motivation I found in you to be better is something I will always remember.



My alignment partner for most part of the course. Your chirpiness, strength and determination is what kept me going in class when I feel I can’t do it anymore. Having you as my mat neighbour is a continuous reminder to give my 100%. You are the one that pushed me to finish all my duck dives, Chaturanga and jump squats. You are the one that pushed me to do another vinyasa instead of just stay in Adho Mukha Svanasana. I found my limitation during the course but you made me found the strength to break through them!



Our age being almost 2 decades apart, you bring the voice, perspective and values of youth nowadays to the group. You live in a different world than the one I used to grow up in. You are facing different challenges, different difficulties and different social pressure. Have faith and patience. Be strong and perceptive. It might be harder for you know, but I believe you will come out stronger than I ever had.


Jessica, Alexis, Mario

This journey wouldn’t have been possible if not for you. There is so much to thank and so much to be grateful for. I am where I am now is because you allow me to be on your shoulders. And this is the best version of me by far. Thank you!


Thank you giants.
