We took a train to a small town outside Bern, wound up many hills in a tiny car in the rain until we reached our destination. Balmeggberg. A beautiful organic farm with many families living off the land. Yurts, a Sauna, beautiful music room and really lovely people to share it with.

Brad and I had been learning Poi through friends and also online videos from Nick's site for a few years now. It was going to be something really special to be able to learn directly from him in such a beautiful setting. It exceeded any expectation I could have had in my mind.

Our schedule for the week became

7:30am wake up for Meditation and Yoga.

Break for Brunch and Relaxing.

Noon: Nick and Alien John taught us Poi

Break: for Snacks and free time to jam or practice poi

Afternoon: More poi outside

6:30: Dinner time

The food was amazing, everyone was very friendly, the farm was very nice to be on and I even got to spend some time playing music and jamming which was a nice bonus.

By the end of it my brain was overloaded with new yoga and poi things to try. I have a years worth of things to practice eaisly.

When it came time to leave we all did a giant media dump and said our goodbyes. It's going to be hard to integrate back into normal life after that. Hopefully I can take some of the calmness from Yoga into my daily life.

Next stop Interlaken for some outdoor activities!
