Dance Mandala in Chiang Mai at The Yoga Tree
(Apr 19, 2016) When I asked The Yoga Tree studio owner, Areeradh, if I can teach free yoga in her studio, she invited me instead to attend the Dance Mandala...didn't have a clue what that was, which got me even more excited. This would be my first in Chiang Mai....more »»

With unhurried pace, I appreciated Siem Reap at a different level....more »»
