1. When and Why Did You Decide to Pursue This Dive At This Level? What was your inspiration and motivation?

In April 2023, I had been sick for about 2 weeks due to gastritis which is caused by life stress. Since then, I realized that my stamina dropped, and less healthy as was easily having a migraine and insomnia. I was thinking too much and worried about the future. I had to change my lifestyle to a better way. That’s why I decided to form a new habit to improve my health and life by starting yoga. I am interested in yoga because it’s kind of a mindfulness practice; it can help me to reduce anxiety and stress in my daily life. It also has many benefits as well such as increasing flexibility, improving strength, boosting the immune system, and many more. I can learn to train my mind to become aware and present through it. 

2. How Long Did It Take For You To Accomplish This Dive At This Level From The Day You Decided To Pursue It, And Why Did It Take That Long?

It took me about 2 months to start my 7 days habit former program from the day I started as the requirement of Level 1. 

3. What Was The Hardest Part About Achieving This Particular Dive Level?

1.    Time management, recently I was busy with my daily job and only had time on the weekend to join the yoga class.
2.    Maintaining body strength and flexibility in yoga as a beginner is quite challenging. I am neither strong nor flexible.

I am on track to do Yoga weekly. 

4. What Was The Easiest Part About Achieving This Particular Dive Level?

There are so many resources to learn yoga. I can do yoga anywhere by self-learning from YouTube or joining a yoga class. As a beginner, I joined a yoga class so that I would be guided by a teacher and avoid injury while doing yoga. After class, I can learn by myself through YouTube at home.

I kept working on my strengths day to day and didn’t give up easily on learning. Yoga is fun so I think I can make it to 21 days.

5. What Is Your Advice For Someone Who Is Pursuing This Dive And Level?

1.    Set your goal in starting yoga and be consistent, make it a daily habit. 
2.    Start with a simple yoga pose, move slowly, and focus.
3.    Don’t compare yourself to others. It’s okay if can’t do a certain pose, be patient and listen to your body.
4.    Find a comfortable place to practice, prepare a yoga mat, and wear comfortable clothes
5.    Anyone can do yoga; we just have to start!

7. Tell Us A Story Of One Of Your Adventures While Pursuing This Dive (At This Level).

The first day of my yoga class was very difficult and all of my body was in pain after the class. I became a little too lazy to attend the class as I felt a little demotivated to compare myself to others in the class. But later on, I tried to be positive and remember my goal to start yoga. I thought about my teacher who was patient to teach me and encouraged me to do more. 

Also, other yogis are very friendly and kind to me, they said that it’s normal for a beginner and that if we keep practicing yoga daily, it will be easier and more fun. 

I have started this dive many times trying to become consistent. After attending the class 8 times, I felt that yoga was still difficult for me but interesting and fun. I learned about yoga poses in Sanskrit names during the class such as Adho mukha, Urdhva, Balasana, Halasana, and many more. Well, I started enjoying yoga though I haven’t done all the poses yet.

I hope I can make Yoga a long lasting habit.

8. What Evidence Did You Submit to Prove You Met the Requirements for This Dive and Level?

I submitted my membership card (monthly) to show my attendance for 7 days and a photo of myself while doing yoga at home.
