I attended my first Yoga Dance class by Deepak yesterday. You can rest assured the word coming from someone who has two left feet. This is one truly wild yoga class I’ve been to. I have never felt so free of inhibitions, self-consciousness when I was dancing in his class. You should see the way he sway that butt. Gosh! I can just stop dancing and watch him. He almost swept me away and my heart just melt into deep relaxation.

At the beginning, I was not very comfortable and rather shy with free expression. But hey, everyone is into it. Just close my eye, deeply relax my body and mind with the gentle stretching then soar into a liberating transformational dance journey. I hadn’t even realized the emotional toxins and burdens that I was carrying. I felt much more lighter after all the hot stomping, jumping and swaying. Everyone look so joyful and rejuvenated after the class. Time sure pass by fast and we was taught some Bollywood movement. I left the class with the exotic Bollywood beat rhythms still playing in my mind. My favourite part would be the, “Maria? MARIA!” *tump, tump, tump*

*head still bobbing while writing this post*

Hi jess. Great to hear that you enjoyed your first yogadance class. I have been going to the yogadance classes with Azmi and Nanci since the classes started in YZ. Have really enjoyed the classes so far. Yes, sometimes am not able to do the steps, cannot coordinate between hands and legs..but no worries, the teachers won’t scold you, just have a good time and feel really rejuvenated after the class.

Jess, you better attend as many class as you could, yc in trouble. Malacca yc is history and next is coming soon.

PJAW on 27 July, 2008 at 10:05 pm #

Karen and LyDm, I’m sure you guys are from the (ex) YC Melaka. What is this about Deepak having classes without informing everyone? Was he sent by YZ KL? As you know, all of us in Melaka are very sad to lose our beloved teachers like Deepak, Lily and Aster. Don’t know what I’ll do now for yoga…don’t hv the heart to join other clubs/schools.

cutiecate on 12 August, 2008 at 4:40 pm #

yesterday we supposed to have hatha 1 by deepak, but due to students request it changed to yogadance + bollywood dance. it was my 1st time attended his class, n i felt so regret i attended it too late bcos it may be the last class at YZ. he is really really great n all of us enjoy very much! the sad thing was, by the end of the class (the class was only last for 45 mins), deepak told us he donno where is he going, n donno will we meet again… im LOST! my mind back to the frontdesk pasted notice -> “no yogaclass from tomorrow until further notice” my heart drop down again…
ya… it’s time to let go the fees paid, i’ll still hv to continue my practice, im goin to join other yoga centre… until YZ is revive!

smiley on 14 August, 2008 at 8:41 pm #

Hi yoga members in Melaka just like ying says any classes please post it here. Well there will be a class this coming Sunday 17/8 and the instructor is non other than our lovable yogi instructor Mr…Deepak. Syabas to you Deepak. Thanks for care and thoughtfulness. Well do you guys believe in karma well perhaps we in Melaka are fated to loss our money in this way but dont forget perhaps we will gain in other way. Just consoling. Dont take it seriously. Adious guys.

Please feel free to join in and let’s do the yoga dance together… By the way, many of us here are ballroom dancers… perhaps you want to see how the ballroom dancers do the yoga dance!!! cheers

haiz…. cant imagine this kind of thing happen to Deepak..
he is raelly a very great teacher

Nanci Traynor on 22 August, 2008 at 2:31 am #

Blessed selves:

Sorry to say that it is not only Deepak that is facing crisis. There are 6 other foreign teachers that have reached a critical point. Malaya, Matthew, Dr. Ameen, Azmi, Pari, and myself (not to mention my husband that moved here with me). There are also 4 front desk staff from Indonesia that are currently living hand to mouth on a day to day basis which is considered indentured servitude.

We all have left the safety of our countries and families in order to offer Malaysia a higher standard of yoga.

No one will hire us because we are too qualified.
The Foreign affairs office will not help us because we make to much money.
This situation is beyond our embassies help.
Like Deepak and Malaya, we all will be locked out of our homes with in a week’s time.

Those of you that have the resources here is a list of ways you can help:
*Lawyer-recommendations and fees
*Rent-there are 5 apts. left. The rent is between 1500-2000rng per apt.
*Utilities-between 150-200rng per apt.
*Flight tickets-some of the teachers and front desk staff just want to go home-but are stuck here.
*Students-some of us have space in our apts. to hold classes. If there are enough students and the teachers are willing to teach out of their homes, they may be able to survive.

These are the immediate things that need to happen. I can be reached at [email protected]

Hari Aum,
Nanci Traynor

Practicing Kama Sutra yoga with Zen(the prettiest yoga instructor in Yoga Zone) is like foreplay, creator of the Better Sex through her. We start to breathe together, sweat together, and move together. It gets our energy synched up. Some mat work might make me more sex-imaginative as well. If u want to explor.We invites you to join. But she is no more with Yoga Zone.

I miss yoga! on 23 August, 2008 at 7:34 pm #

Dear jess,hope u wont delete this post since it has got nothing to do with yogadance or kenko plums.
