Bye YogaLimbs Vincent, via 3hr class!!

Sunday was an interesting day. My yoga activities have been a bit lower recently, way below the twice a week I try to stick to. Depending on the class you can get a good workout (power yoga) or a good stretch which is nice if you are sitting all day. It does benefit my other sporty activities as well by having a bit more flexibility.

Anyway, this sunday a 3hr class was organized to "celebrate" Vincent Hewitt his departure to Shanghai. Vincent is one of the main teachers at Yogalimbs in Hong Kong. Yogalimbs is opening up a studio in Shanghai in cooperation with a new welness spa center called " The Living Room". Vincent will go there and get the operations started and will be spending some time as lead teacher I believe. An exciting new step for YogaLimbs and VIncent of course.

The 3hr class was jampacked and was a good workout for the quads this time :) A good extension of regular 90 minute classes without draining you out completely.


After the yogaclass there was a little farewell party, with some good...indeed indian food. Always interesting to talk a little more with people outside the yogaclass. Surprising to hear new stories behind the faces you always see. In this case i rediscovered certain people do have a complete family, you see people in jobs that I did not expect them to be in etc. The session lasted 1.5hrs and of course included a cake cutting ceremony. As Vincent was the leaving men...... he was supposed to speak a few words, since he is normally present...this was not expected to be an issue. However, he starred in silence this time :)

In the evening an extra "good bye" was organized. Vincent was tricked into coming out for the evening to do "some things". Some of the long time yoga girls organized a karaoke night in Red Box in Causeway bay. Now am not a big karaoke fan, but hey its for a good cause. So around 19:30 Vincent and entourage show up at the place.....

In short, it was not a bad evening where a mix of cantonese and english songs passed the screen, drinks and food passed the table and it looks like everyone enjoyed themselves more or less.

GOOD LUCK AND LOTS OF FUN IN SHANGHAI!
