Yoga Journey Bangkok to Sydney

A New Chapter Filled with Yoga, Laughter, and Learning

Life can take unexpected turns, and sometimes, the most beautiful journeys begin with a single, brave decision. In January 2012, that's exactly what happened for me. After two decades of a fulfilling corporate career in the bustling city of Bangkok, I made a life-altering choice: to trade the familiar streets of Thailand for the sunny shores of Sydney, Australia 

This wasn't just about a change of scenery; it was a leap of faith, a chance to write a brand new chapter filled with new experiences and adventures.

Finding My Voice in a New Land

While English was a familiar language from my days working in international companies in Bangkok, navigating the nuances of everyday communication in a new cultural context presented a unique challenge. My English, though good, needed a little extra polish to truly shine in this new environment.

Here's where my love for yoga came in! I found a beautiful way to combine my passion for teaching with the need to refine my language skills. I started offering yoga classes to a few close friends, using these sessions as an opportunity to practice and enhance my communication. It was a win-win situation! I helped them deepen their practice while simultaneously improving my own fluency.

Sydney Surprise: A Semi-Retired Yogini with a Spring in Her Step

Life in Sydney as a semi-retired woman was an interesting and unexpected delight. Friends often remarked with amusement that I looked far too young to be retired. (Perhaps it was the secret weapon of chilies in my daily diet – but that's a story for another time!).

While genetics, healthy eating, and a positive lifestyle undoubtedly play a role, I truly believe that my consistent yoga and meditation practice was a key factor in feeling calm, happy, and less stressed. It certainly contributed to a more youthful outlook on life.

Stay tuned for Yoga Journey Sydney to Melbourne, where I'll delve into discovering Melbourne's vibrant yoga scene, the unexpected joys of cycling meditations, and the invaluable lessons learned from embracing change with an open heart!
