It’s me again! ☺ Coming to you straight from the amazing Krabi Homestay for the 2 week Yogalife tour.
This is Day #2 and we just finished our first day of a “5-day Mat Intensive” yoga practice which is for 3hours every morning for the next 5 days. We do 1.5hour Sattva yoga movements, 30 minutes of pranayama (breathing techniques) and 1 hour of guided mediation. I feel so relaxed and at ease, the three hours felt like nothing. We also started a 5-day smoothie detox this morning which is an optional add but I highly recommend paying for the extra expense (900 baht which is $30 CAD).
On Day #1 everyone slowly arrived at the homestay so we had a chill day to sun bath and relax in the pool. In the evening we had our first family dinner as well a cool fire ceremony to really get to know each other and figure out we expect to get out of this retreat.
Day #3 was our 2nd day of the yoga practice as well as kayaking in the gorgeous mangrove trees. Even though I did the same kayaking trip when I came here for the 3-week tour in early January I just cannot get enough of the gorgeous scenery.
I will update you all as this amazing trip starts to unfold more!!

Hello from the gorgeous Krabi Life homestay
My name is Amber, some of you may have met me last December on the "Blissful Bali" tour, the "Vietnam Explorer" tour from November or even on the 3-week Thailand tour that happened this year over the holiday season, but if not I am a 27-year-old girl from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada who did not start travelling soon enough in my life so I am currently doing a 3-month adventure around southeast Asia trying to get my fill before I get "too old" although you never too old to travel or even start travelling.
I work in an office back home in a job that keeps me on my toes and has me using my brain in all sorts of ways all day long taking care of 4 needy guys with one of my best friends from college. I live on an acreage with my sister, 2 dogs and 2 cats. I am short with a what I have been told is either an annoying or adorable small voice. I also have the most amazing and supportive boyfriend ever waiting for me at home whom I cannot wait to get back to but Asia was calling my name ever since I got a small taste of it last year.
I just finished the 3 week Thailand tour that started in late December which was amazing! Before that tour I went to Phuket for 10 days and did yoga twice a day and visited all the beaches I could get my hands on while I was there. After the 3-week tour, I did a 2-week volunteer project with the elephants for 1 week in Surin, Thailand and then taught English to kids in Cambodia for a week, which was probably the most fulfilling thing I have done on my adventure so far. As of right now I am on the Yogalife tour with LBW, and once this tour is over I will be going to Siem Reap, Cambodia to stay at the Tipsy Turtle hostel for 1 week before I finally get home and reality again.
Thank you in advance for reading my blogs!!
