Fei Ashtanga Diaries

Recently, a lot of people has been asking me how I maintain my daily practice and how I keep myself motivated to get up early every morning. Well, I'm sure most of you are familiar with the "All or nothing" idiom but why can't it be "All or something" ?  Lately, it typically takes me about two hours to get...
Hello, hello. The weather in New York this Summer is quite nice lately! And I'm absolutely enjoying it very much. Today I arrived the West side at 6:30 am. It seems like I got the hang of arriving at 6:00 am on the east side but the west side remains a working progress. I am determined to get there...
Hello again,  Guess where I practiced this morning? The west side. Yup, I am back on the west side and today I even had the honor to do the invocation! I remember I was in the middle of getting into Baddha Konasana when Scott suddenly called my name to start the opening chant. Me? I can't believe I am standing...
4:30 am - my body alarm rings 4:45 am - ok, I have to get up from bed and I've got to move fast 5:01 am - say bye to mommy, grab my prepped food for the day, and leave the door 5:07 am - I get on the bus and make my way to the 7 train, transfer for the f...
Hello all! Welcome to another day of my morning Mysore practice. Today I was able to make it to Pure East and start my practice at 6:30 am. I will still try to get in a new habit of making it at 6:00 am but it's still a struggle because I've got quite a commute to make. Nevertheless, I...
Hello there!    I went to practice Mysore with David Hollander at Pure Yoga East instead of the west today. I stepped onto my yoga mat with the intention of only practicing up to the full primary series because I was running slightly behind my usual schedule, but I ended up doing the first three poses of the secondary series...
Whew! Wow, what an intense day! Never would I have thought yoga can make me feel this worn out and tired. This is what happens when you get super excited to be in teacher training, are overly ambitious, and think it's a fantastic idea to practice ashtanga yoga two times a day.  "You're going to do this again this afternoon" Jamie...
Sometimes I laugh at myself. Actually, I laugh at myself all the time because that's how silly and bubbly I am. I didn't know why I didn't expect to give a self introduction on the first day of teacher training but damn... I was actually quite nervous 😂 ! Perhaps it's a mixture of nervous excitement and anticipation.  This 10...
Whew! I did it. I finally did it. The epiphany of becoming a yoga teacher has finally arrived. I'm going to do a 100-hour Ashtanga teacher training this Summer! 🎊🎉🎈 Honestly, I had no idea yoga would influence my life so so much when I first started my practice back in 2014. I had no idea how I transitioned from being...
Happy Monday my lovely peers! Have you ever had a day where you woke up and feel super duper unmotivated, mopped around the house doing absolutely nothing? Well, this is for you because today was one of those mornings for me. My thoughts were hazy and I just didn't feel like myself. So what happened? 😞 Perhaps it's from waking up in...
