Pinned toot


Hello, nice to meet you!

My name is Tingyi, and I'm a yoga practioner, an art psychotherapist, and a lover of cooking and travel. I live and work in London, UK, originally from Taiwan.

I value the power of compassion, kindness, and forgiveness.

At the moment I am planning and preparing to launch my own tiny private practice space (I welcome collaborations in art, design, etc!). You can check out my website for more information: tingyilai.com

Happy to be here 👋🌱

Cycled to the park for a picnic with a friend. Finally got to use my super packable picnic blanket! @Tingyi

Dressed up with @gueorgui for Alice Sara Ott’s Nightfall concert🎹💓and watched it .. at home on our iPad! Thanks to the pandemic that saved us the tickets to Berlin and the accommodation😅

Lost and found; rupture and repair.

I had a slow walk with @gueorgui last week. It’s been awhile because of the lockdown, and it felt good! I wonder if the lockdown allows us to see the world from a rather humble perspective😉

Someday you will look back and know exactly why it had to happen. Photo taken by @gueorgui

Not being able to find the right words at crucial times is one of my many problems.

“These days I’ve often wondered, who in the world am I? And very seriously at that. If you took away my career as a plastic surgeon, and the happy environment I’m living in, and threw me out into the world, with no explanation, and with everything stripped away — what in the world would I be?”

Completely randomly learned about the flow chart by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. To achieve flow or enter the "zone", a state where you deliberately control your attention instead of forcing it on a task, you need this task to be clearly defined, not too hard or too easy, and which can provide instant feedback. Csikszentmihalyi referred to flow as "an optimal experience" which of course is clearly enjoyable.

It seems kinda obvious but it actually helps putting logical explanations behind feelings.

I caught the sunlight that stayed only for seconds.

Choose to be happy than wait to be happy. May you feel loved wherever you are in the world. 🌈✌🏼

It’s never too late to take steps to attempt to repair any rupture that may have happened.

Have a good night, the world. May you all have a sweet dream. 🌙

In other words, having the ability to say ‘I love you’ in a million different ways even when things get hard.😉

Yes, we argue a lot.

After each emotional storm, I tend to review photos of us and realise how much happiness there is between us. I am then reminded that it is not having a sky without storms, or work without fatigue, or relationships without disappointments that makes you happy. Being happy is finding strength to forgive, to keep faith high in challenging times, and maintaining love and respect in disagreements.
