During my teenage years, I suffered a fractured tailbone, which led to a constant backache when sitting for extended periods. I sought relief through Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatments for years. However, my back pain worsened as I bore and cared for three children. Stress from work caused sleepless nights. By chance, I discovered yoga while exploring various exercises at a fitness center. Practicing yoga significantly eased my backache and improved my ability to manage the anxiety of juggling motherhood and full-time work. Encouraged by these results, I continued with yoga and even pursued a teaching course. I have since diversified into different forms of yoga to experience the various benefits it offers in different aspects of my life.
