Welcome back

After two years, I have decided to come back to writing. So, the biggest question I have been asked by my editor is, “What have you been up to?” Wow. When I look over that, it is pretty amazing to share. At the time, I was finishing up a Certificate Program in Project Management at Ryerson University and in an open relationship with someone. Life was full and busy. In the spring of 2016, I was at a crossroad. I had broken up with someone, had also completed some goals of mine, and was sor

Daniel Uy’s Spotlight on Yoga: Yoga Unite (If you open up and put it out there, people take notice)

Where Yoga and HIV Come Together and Play

So recently I was interviewed by Socially Fit.  They were looking for inspirational stories and interviewed me with some questions.  We had it re-printed on positivelite.com here.  What was awesome was that in it I put out to the universe world that if there was any way that I could give back to HIV community or world at large, to contact and let me know.  Somehow that phrase opened the door.

Nothing Can Stop Me

This article first appeared on the blog Socially Fit. Meet Daniel Uy. A yogi by trade and fun-loving guy by nature. Very funny and honest.

Through yoga, fitness, and overall well-being he has reclaimed his life and here he is sharing his story. I wasn’t an adult very long before HIV.  I was never the modicum of vital

Daniel Uy went to see the Buddies in Bad Timers/Studio 180 Theatre production of The Normal Heart by Larry Kramer too. Here are his impressions.

A Heart-on for The Normal Heart.

Note: The Normal Heart is reviewed by Bob Leahy on PositiveLite.com here. Last week I had the opportunity to go and see a preview of The Normal Heart by Larry Kramer at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre with my mother. Around mid-September I get a call from her about this performance and honestly, I was weirded out about it. More so by her comfortability around the subject matter more than I was. The show was powerful. I was confronted with dialogue and imagery that haunts the newly diagnosed

Daniel Uy muses on time – how we spend it, how we waste it and how we can make better use of it.

I’m Late! I’m Late! For a very important date!

So I love the idea of writing. I love the decadence of casually saying or mentioning “Well I just wrote this lovely little piece on...” but in reality I just don’t want to write because it takes too long! I’m the kind of guy that goes to the gym, picks up a 10lb dumbbell, does one set of bicep curls and then wonders why I don’t have a six pack yet. Or my absolute favourite is when I walk in the door at home and expect dinner to be made for me – even though I am single and live alon
