I left Banteay Srey earlier than planned to go up to Siem Reap to see Angkor Wat and the other temples. It was worth it to wake at 4am to see the sunrise and walk in the early hours of the morning. I also took yoga class at the Siem Reap Hostel (www.thesiemreaphostel.com) and the Peace Cafe (www.peacecafeangkor.org). Both were lovely classes and I would recommend them if you are passing through the city.
My first week in Cambodia has been wonderful and welcoming! I'm so happy I made the decision to come here. I'm a volunteer yoga teacher for the Banteay Srey Project in Kampot which is a refuge for women's transformation. The trainees offer spa services such as body scrub, full massage, facials, and manicure/pedicure. Every morning we do a 30 minute morning yoga class together. Another teacher will have a stronger morning practice 9:30-11:00am while I've been teaching a more gentle flow/yin 5-6:30pm. Here's a look at the past week:
