Over the past week Juliette has started at a yoga teacher training course. From the brief conversations I have had with her it seems to be very intense, starting at 0530 each morning and finishing at 2100 each night for a month. On Sunday she taught her first 30 minute yoga class which she said went very well!
Below is a photo of her class with her fellow future yoga teachers!
While Juliette has been stretching and learning about anatomy I have been helping on a feijoa farm. Feijoas are also known as pineapple guava, they are green, about the size of a chicken egg and taste delicious. I still enjoy the fruit despite picking over 5 ton of them over the past week! We work 6 days a week and on Sundays have been taken to various vineyards to drink wine which has been fun, not much wine has been spat out!

It has been a great experience learning about different cultures from the other pickers who have been from America, Australia, Germany and Japan!

I have also been lucky enough to play rugby in New Zealand that sure was an experience coming up against huge Kiwi farmers.
Hopefully the next blog will be a little more interesting as I will be doing more than picking feijoas and will update you on Juliette’s progress!
