What I found was a deep, deep satisfaction with my life and the ability to take in risks and loving the uncertainty. Alongside, I was able to practice a whole lot of yoga in the yoga mecca Bali, I visited the most beautiful countries and met so many interesting people.

Practicing Yoga in Thailand was a whole new experience for me. I am very used to the 'western' yoga style, but the way Thais do yoga is very different. Yet I absolutely loved it.

This helped me so much in my yoga practice as it gave me new strength and new confidence. Read here all about my experiences with yoga ananda in Chiangmai, Thailand.
