Yoga-ta stop visiting TYI Diaries and dot WordPress!

leave a comment »

Through my dusty Nuffnang dashboard, I came to notice that some of you (well, about 6++ of you that) seem to still be opening The Yoga Instructor Diaries to be directed to this fairly new blogsite of mine – on a daily basis! It is mind-boggling yet flattering though (as you could have just typed ‘ninie’ and your URL should show suggestions of this new site, no?).

I have to shout a loud THANK YOU anyway for that, because I still get not bad a passive income from Nuffnang for The Yoga Instructor Diaries even after five months of having stopped blogging there.

Today, I plead all of you to change your bookmark / sidebar link from (and of course) to as this domain is now hosted on a private server 😉 and I won’t be writing from WordPress anymore after this post.

See you at after this click!

..then WE came to the end.

This is the year I

    yet this is also the year that I chose to

    • willingly stop writing advertorials
    • happily cut my long hair short
    • helplessly end my 2-year-old relationship with a wonderful and supertall someone 😦

    So yes, 2009 was a really good year but..

    then we came to the end.

    I celebrate every day. Every movement. Every breath.

    On my 27th birthday yesterday, I managed to

    • sing 27 karaoke songs (pranayama)

    27 songs

    • stand on my head for 27 minutes (Sirsa asana)

    Top & pants from adidas by Stella McCartney

    I thank Almighty High Above for 27 years of life, breath, strength, clarity and light.

    I promise You I will take good care of Your gifts lent to me; this mind, this body, these lungs, this spine, these lips, these hands

    • by respecting my body enough to not simply dump anything in my mouth in the name of gluttony / to not have to kill other living being for my survival (Non-harming in any way – Ahimsa)
    • by performing enough physical execise (Poses – Yoga Asana) to not let toxins and excessive fat govern my system
    • by speaking only words of  positive encouragements and truth to preserve your gift of truth (Truthfulness – Satya)
    • by allowing my heart to let go of material things (Non-Possesiveness / Non-Greed – Aparighara) that do not help me be a better person / live longer (Inner contentment – Santhosha)
    • by planting only positive thoughts in my head (Illumination – Tapas) to keep my whole system’s energy clear (Self-realization – Samadhi).

    to hopefully be able to live another year in health, happiness and with Your blessing. Insya Allah.
