It's been a week since we arrived in Kyoto. Time has flown by. We have been so unbelievably busy with 'nesting'. It's almost done. It will be great to just be able to settle in a quotidian routine. We both crave routine. Now that most of our apartment is liveable, etc...I'm starting to think about other things. I have one of my bikes that I've brought with me back 'on the road', and, now, I've just had a look for the closest swimming pool where I can smash out some kms a couple of times a week. I love to swim laps. It's funny. I only breathe on my left side every 4 or 8 strokes, and I use the rhythm of the gayatri mantra, so as I swim I do japa...
Anyways, here is my first bit of research from 'the field'... while looking for a pool, I found this gym - http://www.heming.co.jp/demachi/hotstudio.html - which has a 'hot studio'. It's certainly going to be interesting to see what yoga is like in Japan. The first phase of the project will focus on 'Yoga in Kyoto'. Phase 2 will expand to other cities in and around Kansai Prefecture. Later, in 2018, the gaze will expand to other cities and towns across Japan. It would be great to hear from anyone who either lives in Japan, or who is travelling through Japan, and has a penchant for yoga, in whatever forms this takes.
