Melissa: “Do you want to join me for a yoga class?”

“Do you want to join me for a yoga class?”

“But… I’m not a ‘yoga’ person..”

“Try it”


From that day onwards, somewhere late Feb 2018 was how I took my first baby steps into
yoga. Or so I thought. Instead of slowly dipping my toes in the sea I felt I got smacked into
the ocean by the wind at the core yoga class I took.

I still remember the first yoga class I took vividly. The class was led by Alexis at The Yoga
Mandala. (Monday 7:30pm ya’ll) Apart from the few yoga videos on Youtube that I’d tried, I’d
never done yoga before. I remember giggling at the breathing exercises (what noise is that?)
and I remember being tired after the first 10 minutes or so. In downward facing dog, I
remember asking myself why I agreed to go to a yoga class because THIS IS PURE
TORTURE. But unbeknownst to me, I was hooked from that day onwards. Week in, week out,
I would go to class happily and would gladly receive the “torture” flavour of the week.
And here I am.. 2 years later, taking my YTT.

Thank you Leo, for taking me to my first yoga class. I know I’ve thanked you before and you
said “You did the work yourself” but without your first nudge towards the direction of yoga, I
wouldn’t be where I am now. (wow this sounds like an award speech) Jokes aside, it was a
turning point in my life for the better and for that, I am forever grateful.
