Meet Jie MYBO’s October student of the month. Jie has been practicing with MYBO for a few months sometimes twice a day!! Her practice is getting STRONGER by the minute! congrats Jie!!
I am Jie (Eva) Yu from China. I just graduated from Johns Hopkins University and now I am working in DC area. If you find someone in Johns Hopkins hoodie in the studio, it may be me.
I spend most of my time in office, in front of the computer. To be honest, I do not like it. I like out door activities like hiking, climbing and even working and jogging. After graduation, I still spend a lot of time in studying new things. for example, dancing, drawing and reading some professional or unprofessional books. Of course, yoga is the one I am now passionate about.
I started practicing yoga two months ago. Initially, I want to lose weight without hurting myself. Yes! After 2 months, i really lost more than 10 lbs. However, after practicing, i found the more important thing is not losing weight anymore. Yoga also gives me peaceful mind. Every time after practicing yoga, I feel satisfied, peaceful and relaxed. No matter what I have met during the day, nothing left after yoga. And this is my great motivation to practice yoga regularly and even every day. I enjoy it because it gives me time to stay with my soul, to rethink about myself, and to find myself. It makes me stronger not only physical but also mental.
I like instructors in MYBO best. They are kind and I feel they really understand the spirit of yoga and try to tell us students. The are not only teaching yoga posture but also teaching the spirit of life.
