Does your body feel like
it should practice yoga? Join the trend. However,
how do you find a suitable yoga school? Apart
from chain yoga schools and the famous ones
widely advertised, some personal neighborhood
workshops might offer something just right.
Only a three-minute walk from the ZhongXiao/FuXing
MRT Station is The Swami Salami School of
Yoga. The funny name and logo tells you that
they are not into the whole "master yogi"-thing.
Swami Salami is a tall, slender man named
Rob, who places emphasis on safely practicing
yoga. Rob's teacher from India taught him
yoga was not a competition. It is not necessary
to achieve difficult advanced-level poses;
the important thing is the basic postures.
With daily practice, you will experience changes
both physically and mentally.
A. Rob has
practiced kung fu since the age of 13. He
studied yoga professionally in India, and
is also qualified in yoga healing. Rob encourages
students to concentrate on learning to breathe
properly and incorporating yoga poses into
daily lives to relieve stress.
B. Rob teaches
classes in both Chinese and English, with
emphasis on carefully achieving the postures.
There are three daily weekday classes. Your
first lesson is free.
