The month of January was a huge shift for me mentally and spiritually for 2 reasons – it was my 30th birthday and for the first time, I spent it (the entire month actually) at Paradise Islands in the Bahamas to get a yoga teaching certification. The goal was to embark on a spiritual journey and take a break from Hong Kong but in the end I got so much more. It was a four week intensive experience that packed a schedule of ritual meditation, Asana and Pranayama classes, lectures and karma yoga. Doing yoga and walking around the grounds in Gourami was effortless and calming. Their pieces were extremely comfortable, like loungewear, but still functional like a second skin when stretching and moving. When you look good, you feel good, and with Gourami, it feels great so I can focus on taking a breather and looking within.
