Delhi, a fascinating city.

Honestly, we were expecting the worse for our first time in India. Everybody has something to say about it: rude people, dead bodies in the street, scary stray dogs, but also good things about how it is fascinating. And it really is fascinating.

Yes it is dirty but we were expecting worse, some part of the city are totally fancy and hip, we had lunch in a place name Social in a hip part of Delhi, amazing fusion food, and obviously in this country I can find many vegetarians options!

We started in the morning by visiting the biggest mosque of the city and a rickshaw ride in the old Delhi. I absolutely loved it. It is so typical with thousand of people everywhere, good and bad smells, so many colors, people honking everywhere, all your senses are awake. It could be overwhelming but so fun! I highly recommend the rickshaw ride in the Old Delhi.

People are nice most of the time. ( seriously the rudest people were the staff of our fancy botel). Our guide told us what kind of clothes not to wear (no short pants, no short skirt..) so we won’t be provocative.

Regarding stray dogs, one of our retreat mate was bitten the first day and had to receive a rabies shot… So I have to refrain petting every dogs I see, and it’s not easy as they are so cute and everywhere.

We left Delhi this morning to Agra, by train. A scary experience that I’ll explain in my next post.

Namaskar from India.

SmartFLOW yoga teacher. I've studied Power vinyasa, restorative, and yoga for pregnant woman with Tamal Dodge in Los Angeles. After that wonderful time, I felt attracted by movement and flow, so I studied with Shiva Rea for 300 hours her Prana Flow style. But after a yoga for scoliosis workshop and after realizing what I want in my practice and for my students, I've decided to focus on a more alignment focused yoga, and started studying with the great Annie Carpenter. Now, after more than 400h with her, my teaching skills had changed for the best. The more I learn the more I have to share with my students, so I follow different trainings every year and I had the great honor to learn from amazing teachers like Krista Cahill, Maty Ezraty or Dona Holleman. I'm now teaching SmartFLOW YOGA, Hatha yoga, restorative yoga and chair yoga (for people with less range of motion) in Monaco most of the time, but also in some magical events such as Burning Man in Nevada. http://instagram.com/cheyenneyoga/ Ambassador of a great VEGAN BOOTS BRAND pawj california, think cruelty free Ugg style boots.
