What better way to break Soultrain radio silence than to announce todays very special YogaPOP session in honor of Amelia's birthday!? After all, she is the inspiration behind YogaPOP community classes since the day she asked to practice yoga with me back in April 2014. Surprised with herself having underestimated her capabilities on the mat, Amelia found herself more in the consciousness of her own body. The joy on her face, the sound of her humming tunes around the house...tell tale signs there was good work to be done here. Together with Amelia, we began to host pay-as-you-wish yoga classes in Cyberport Park which welcomes all...but targets the likes of other domestic helpers seeking something more on their day off. The YogaPOP family thrives at it attracts all the lovely yogis and yoginis. We've been blessed with teachings from various lineages from many outstanding guest teachers as well.
Amelia sacrifices time away from her three daughters in order to make a decent living here in Hong Kong so she can support her children's health and education. Despite her tireless work week commitment, she still chooses to spend most of her Sundays practicing yoga with the rest of the YogaPOP gang. It's really endearing. They just keep showing up! ;)
So, if you are planning on joining us today, note the change in venue during our summer sessions. Thanks to Tonet for hooking up an air conditioned dance room! Yoga mats provided! WOW ;)

Always a tune to leave residual embers upon our souls. This one here finds me down on my knees in gratefulness I am alive despite life's shadows to share in the good work there is to be done here. "Let's paint these wings and make them fly..."
