Well seeing as I’ve had an account on this forum for about 8 months and have ceased to do much with it i thought this might be a lovely place to start. Hi my name is Yai, I’m 22 years old and i hail originally from New Zealand. I moved to the UK about 8 months ago and have mostly been residing in Oxford, while travelling to various locals and doing certain deeds. My most recent trip was to Glastonbury where i spent a lot of time introspecting and being with me which was just what the spirit ordered. There have been many ups and downs since i moved here, involving both work and play but there has been time and space for a lot of growth. I came to England with the hopes of studying contemporary music, with a dream of one day forming a spiritually focussed Prog/Tech/Psychedelic Metal come hard rock band, but as of today that may not be possible, as im not eligible for any funding assistance from the UK govt even as a citizen. Drag man. So now I’m revaluating my options, watch this space as there may be some BIG changes. I’m currently toying with a couple seasons as a guide, a little travel then study as a Yoga teacher as I’m feeling I’m at the crossroads where i get to decide between mundane life and a more spiritually holistic focussed one a little earlier than expected. On that note a bit about me spiritually, Ive been a Hatha Yoga practitioner for about a year and a half now and love it, most recently undertaking Ashtanga classes that i have enjoyed dearly. I’m a vegetarian for Spiritual reasons for a little over a year... About 18 months i think, and I’m strongly influenced by Eastern thought and have felt quite a strong pull toward Vedic teachings which i want to explore in the next few years quite deeply. I’ve avoided asking some questions on the Hindu forum before I’ve read more deeply into the different schools, but I’m probably just going to start asking as people here seem very friendly. So yeah thats me in a nut shell. Hope you enjoy my trails. Namaste.
