My Yoga Teaching specialty for the day......by DOMONGO RIED
Hello, Im Domingo, yoga lover and teacher from Chile.
before coming to sri lanka i thought that maybe i cannot adapt to live in a place far away from home for such a long time
after one month in this yoga villa i dont know how i will leave!
What can i said; this place food is AMAZING, hehe thats just a detail because also whats make this place different is the way of living, you never feel like a hotel, feel like home, sharing every breakfast and every dinner, eating together, so i made many friends from all around the world talking about so many different topics and also with many different people that i meet here we travelling around the area that is full of touristic places as well.
The house commodities are great, is old style house(sometimes remind me the countryside houses from chile), well maintain, clean and the stuff working here they are friendly, smiling and willing to help you at anytime, at the end we become good friends too.
about the yoga classes i felt very good teaching, sometimes is more challenging to teach here because can have different levels in the same classes, so i need to be flexible to adapt to the class and every person who join the class. I can said that my teacher experience skill improve after being here teaching 2 classes a day!
And finally Sri Lanka, lovely place, clean and safe, i never have a dangerous experience. The street is clean and the local people is friendly and not annoying, we went to many different tours, safari, beach, cinnamon plantation, galle fort, tea plantation, coconut wool factory, etc etc.
Thanks to every person who help me to make this experience unique and give motivation to believe that people is willing to share time doing yoga and spend beautiful moments together.
see you again next time villa de zoysa sri lanka.
