I’m teaching at Bikram Yoga Kawana & Noosa, 2 studios at almost opposite ends of the Sunny Coast, owned by Manyia Vale. Both studios are very different in order and appearance to my last teaching gig at duCalme in Stockholm, Sweden. DuCalme is located in an apartment building basement, has hardwood flooring, receptionists, a hammam, serves tea & fruit after class and exudes luxury. Kawana is new and fresh, Noosa a little rustic, the teacher doubles as the receptionist but things are quieter, less chic, more chill and the beaches are more or less around the corner.
I was born in these parts, it’s where my parents live and it’s such a lovely part of this world. I’ve surfed as much as I’ve practiced yoga this week and for me that’s a balance I’ve yearned for. I’ll miss Stockholm for sure and plan to drop in over the summer of ’14. We’ll see; till then, home is where the heart is.
