The gracefulness of “Yi Shui Kong” becomes apparent in its movements. Whenever I observe clouds drifting across the sky or leaves dancing in the wind, I am reminded of its beauty.

Playing the violin demands a delicate balance between elasticity and inner strength—two qualities that “Yi Shui Kong” helps me understand through its subtle interplay of forces.

My practice of “Yi Shui Kong” has also contributed to slowing my breathing, enhancing my awareness of each inhalation and exhalation.
The gentleness inherent in “Yi Shui Kong” is not superficial; it embodies a relaxed yet purposeful energy. This controlled power finds resonance in violin performance, particularly when expressing long musical phrases in Western music.

The first Chinese-American Miss Utah in 2023.
BYU Student Body President.

Before participating in the Miss America pageant, I had the opportunity to learn from Master Lin.

I learned how to properly align my body.
She also taught me how to use breath to control my movements, adjust my body, and relax completely from the inside out.

The principles I learned helped ground my stage presence and move more naturally.
Lin is truly a Master!
