Pri from Chit Chat and Chai is here today, and I am excited! I sought her out after hearing her on The Skinny Confidential podcast, creepy right? Our love for Lauryn runs deep! She gives some good tips to new bloggers or anyone who is slowly working away on their side hustle. Pri also just got back from a trip to India so be sure to follow her for wanderlust inspiration!
A spontaneous day off work led us to the charming town that is Jasper. Jasper is nestled in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, a 3 hour drive from the capital city Edmonton. The sun was shining and we needed to get out and do something so Stephen and I took my car for a drive to go exploring! We went to Pyramid Lake, did some window shopping and checked out live music. These unplanned days are my favourite.

My solo journey came to an end in Nai Yang, Phuket. I stayed at the Chill House for two nights before I made my way to Krabi to see Stephen. While I was in Nai Yang I took in a morning yoga class at Baan Yoga. The studio was beautiful but the tin roof made this regular class feel like a hot yoga class. I was drenched!
Everyone can benefit from a yoga practice. Thats right, everyone! Kids, teens, men, seniors, the list goes on. This is the one thing that everyone CAN do. Even the word yoga is translated into “union” or “binding” a yoga practice brings us all together. You don’t need a lot of equipment and you don’t need a lot of space, you just need a body and a willingness to learn.
