While living here in Korea there are two places that I spend a lot of my time, not including my apartment. The first being the private academy that we teach at and the yoga studio I practice at.
The majority of the students that I teach are awesome. Here is a pic of my four favorite students…Princess, Sally, Eliza and Lisa (the kids get to choose an English name, so sometimes their names are a little strange, hence Princess). These girls are so energetic and love to speak English, which makes my job quite easy. They are also good for a little boost in self -confidence. Everyday when I walk into class they tell me “Wow, teacher, you look so beautiful today! Your hair looks so special” Ha! They make me laugh a lot! I will definitely miss these girls.
Some of my other students who make my job so enjoyable!
After my breakfast each morning I venture into town to go to Yoga. It takes me about 20 mins to walk there if I am going at quick pace, so it’s good exercise. My class is from 9:00-10:15ish each morning. It is a wonderful way to start the day. Most days it is quite relaxing, but there are some days that the teachers really work us hard with a lot of core strengthening. It has been a fun experience to learn a new activity in a different language. The teachers are so kind and helpful and have taken me under their wings as their little foreign protege. They always get super excited when I conquer a new pose successfully!
Here is a shot of the inside of the studio, which is on the 11th floor of a high rise, so it offers quite a nice view.
So here is just another small glimpse into my life in Korea. There is more to come!
Have a happy Friday!
