My first yoga class – Bom’s goosebump moment
Bom: “Hello, I’m from Korea. So, my goosebump moment was when I started my first yoga class five years ago. I was in Sydney, Australia and I happened to get free access to the class and tried my first yoga session ever. After one hour and thirty minutes of this yoga class, somehow I felt these goosebumps from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet, sitting down in a seated position which got me really hooked with yoga. And here I am five years later, I am currently a certified yoga teacher. I quit my office job last November in order to pursue my dream. Perhaps that was the best goosebump moment I’ve ever had in my life. Thank you.”

All about Yoga
It is difficult to find a recent wellness trend that has enjoyed more sustained echo than yoga. There is no single reason that drives people to this ancient practice. Yoga experts suspect it has to do with the combination of physical and mental health benefits associated with the practice.
The high stress and fast pace of today’s world make yoga more relevant than ever. Although yoga is traditionally a system for promoting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being, it is not usually considered a set of religious beliefs. Yoga can be practiced in a completely secular way, and is practiced by people of all religious traditions, as well as by agnostics and atheists.
