Jai Thep

Chiang Mai is a melting pot for creativity that has earned itself the reputation of the cultural and arts center of Thailand. So, it seems fitting that Chiang Mai now also boasts a 3 day music and arts festival in the green mountainous jungle of Samoeng (about 45 min from the Old City). Along with international music acts and art installations there was also a stacked lineup of wellness workshops hosted by some of Chiang Mai’s prominent healing artists. There were acro yoga workshops, dance mandala, reiki, healing sound bowls, hip hop wellness and of course a little dash of kid’s yoga.

We loved leading our yoga classes under a fabulous bamboo circus big top and sharing partner poses, meditation and laughter.

Thanks for having us Jai Thep, we can’t wait to be a part of your next grand celebration of imaginative living.

Shampoo making

 

This weekend we had the pleasure of hosting Auntie Orn in our kitchen for an all-natural shampoo making workshop.

First we recorded our garden fresh ingredients in pictures and words.

Then we designed our bottle packaging and named our shampoo, ‘Dove’, ‘Eat Me’, and ‘Song kran’ were some of our favorite titles.

Next, we added our ingredients to a large bowl to prepare for boiling.

Finally, we strained our fragrant mixture and bottled it to take home.
