2006 年 Gladys 參加了人生第一堂的瑜伽課，自此以後便深深愛上了這項運動，但可惜其後幾年的繁重工作一直窒礙她在瑜伽上的練習。然而，這個決定不久便被證明是一個錯誤的舉動。無休止的工作令她開始受到情緒焦慮的困擾，以至身心俱疲，最終更打亂了其生活的方式。2012 年，Gladys 終於重回瑜伽練習的路途上，更於 2016 年跟隨 Tryphena Chia 完成了第一個瑜伽教師的培訓 (Baptiste Power Vinyasa 瑜伽教學)。自此以後，瑜伽經已變成 Gladys 日常生活的一部分，而她亦十分享受瑜伽本身、瑜伽呼吸和靜觀練習所帶來的莫大益處。在瑜伽墊上，Gladys 找到了內在的自我，令她感覺更實在丶更安寧和更完整，而這正是她確信一段健康快樂人生應有的基石。
Gladys 認為瑜伽對任何人來說都可以很有趣，因為它能讓我們從動作失誤中反思成長。與此同時，它也能令我們瞭解更多於瑜伽墊內外的自己，以及學會在穩定 (sthira) 和舒適 (sukha) 間尋找適合自己的生活方式。
除此以外，Gladys 在懷孕期間深深感受到瑜伽對她整個懷孕過程的幫助，於是決心跟知名導師 Dr. Jean Byrne 及 Michelle Papa 學習 Mindful Birth Yoga for Pregnancy, Birth and Baby，並盼望跟大家分享以瑜伽去加深體會懷孕過程身心靈上的微妙變化及去輔助當中所遇到的挑戰。
Gladys joined her first yoga class in 2006 and she immediately fell in love with it. Yet the hassle work life stopped her practising years later. This decision was quickly proven as a wrong move where she started to suffer lots of anxiety and physical drainage, and eventually caused her losing the way in life. In 2012, Gladys resumed her yoga practice and embarked her first yoga teacher training with Tryphena Chia in 2016, training under Baptiste-inspired Power Vinyasa-style yoga. Since then yoga had been naturally selling into her everyday life. She has been enjoying tremendous benefits and experience from yoga, pranayama and meditation. She found that yoga brought space for her inner-self and made her feeling whole, grounded and at peace - what she believes is the foundation for a healthy and joyful life.
Gladys believes yoga can be fun for anybody and allows making mistakes or falling that we can grow. It teaches us more about ourselves than we may know - between sthira and sukha (steadiness and ease), on and off the mat.
During her pregnancy, Gladys was deeply impressed by the benefit of her regular yoga practice. She decided to learn from both renowned instructors Dr. Jean Byrne and Michelle Papa about the Mindful Birth Yoga for Pregnancy, Birth and Baby. She looks forward to sharing with you all how prenatal／postnatal can deepen your understanding of the subtle changes in body & mind and assist the challenges you may encounter throughout the pregnancy.
