Yoga Instructor: “You Are the Best!”

Yoga instructor Fiona was excited after watching the demonstration and talked with practitioners. She said, “I noticed that each of you smiled and your hand gestures were beautiful when you demonstrated the exercises. You were full of energy!”

“I felt strong energy when I followed along and did your hand gestures. I was fortunate to stay as I planned to leave in the middle of the session. But something urged me to stay. Frankly speaking, you are the best in today's event.”

Fiona is from Malaysia and said she believed she was predestined to meet Falun Gong practitioners that day. She said she would introduce Falun Gong to her friends.

Fiona said she was seeking spirituality and had traveled to the Himalayas. She said, “The Nepalese people are happy even though they have few material things. Here, we have so much, but it seems we are unhappy.

“I liked yoga, focused on it, and began to teach it. I noticed your legs are flexible when you meditate.” She said she was very interested in learning Falun Gong and wrote down a practitioner's contact information.

“Can You Come Regularly to Teach the Exercises?”
