It is not accidental to meet a good teacher. If you do, it is even more rare to learn yoga together for 5 years and grow up with each other 😃. The following is a letter from a retired elder to Atisha, a fitness instructor:
I have been with Teacher Atisha for about five years. Over the past five years, I have learnt yoga with Teacher Atisha and have benefited a lot.
Before learning yoga with teacher Atisha, I had never learned yoga. At first, I was worried that my bones would become hard when I was older, and I could not do some yoga movements, so I just tried to learn it. Unexpectedly, I met a very good teacher. Teacher Atisha taught from the most basic breathing, which part of each movement should be exercised, and how to master the movement so as not to hurt oneself. He explained clearly with patience. After a period of study, especially the understanding of breathing, it has greatly improved my respiratory diseases for many years.
Some people learn yoga to pursue the difficulty of asanas. Compared with this, I prefer Teacher Atisha to focus on Vipassana. She often guides us to relax and adjust our emotions. This helped me to get out of emotional distress and achieve peace of mind.
With this disease plagued the world today, it is a great gift from God to continue to learn yoga with Teacher Atisha. I am very grateful! I also cherish this fate with Teacher Atisha!
Thanks! Thank you!
