“There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do, and mostly live.” — the Dalai Lama
June Chu understands yoga as a process of inquiry. She entered her teacher training with thoughtful queries: “What is yoga and how should I practice?” And she left the classroom with an even more valuable question, “What experience can I share with my students?”
In 2014, June completed Advanced Hatha Teacher Training Levels 1, 2 & 3 at Anahata Yoga, Hong Kong. The course transformed her yoga practice from a physical exercise to a mindful journey. Yoga helps her move forward. She has come to realize that all obstacles are actually illusions, and that this truth is only revealed after you face your limitations and pass through them.
Yoga has improved her focus and awareness. Through yoga, June has learned more about herself, the environment, and the relationship between action and reaction. She uses yoga to calm her mind and manage her emotions. “When something good or bad happens, I accept it as a life lesson. I try to remain open and learn from the experience. We have to accept certain things before we can change them,” says June.
June teaches with the overseas workers programme in Central, Hong Kong, every Sunday morning. She is delighted by the exchange of energy, happiness, and inspiration throughout each class. “It’s a great way for teachers and students to start the day,” she says. June has been teaching at Yoga Club Hong Kong and Kwun Tong Methodist Church Serivce Centre.
