Last week, we ventured down to Spirit Yoga Studio, which is located near Temma Station in Osaka. We spoke with Haidar Ali, who is the founder and director of Spirit Yoga Studio and Spirit Yoga International School. We also spoke with Yumika Sakura, who is recent graduate from a 200YTT at Spirit Yoga International School, and Akihiko Sakane, who is the website manager. There is great passion amongst the team. While we didn't have time to join a class, we were welcomed back, and are keen to experience the warm, welcoming sense of union and community they offer, for ourselves. The glass off tea on arrival is a great way to set the mood, and begin to leave the stress of the street outside.
odissi - classical indian Dance
Today, we ventured to Studio Bindu, in the east of Kyoto, to watch Kamala Klebanova perform Odissi, a classical Indian dance which originated in Odisha (East India).
Autumn colours and humans
We were fortunate enough to experience the end of autumn in Japan. The colours of the maple trees were vibrant yellow, orange and red. Add to your bucket list, visit Japan during autumn! 🍁
ozharvest: nourishing our country
This is a 3-min short film we entered in the World Nomads' film competition. We didn't win :-( ... but it was fun making it. It is about the kindness of the volunteers at OzHarvest, which is a 'food rescue' organisation.
