Kerala is a state in the southern part of India. We stayed in, Cochin, a pretty fishing town by the sea.
One of the nice parts of Kerala are the backwaters – a network of lagoons, lakes and rivers. As soon as I was on the water I felt a peacefulness come over me. It was absolutely delicious and delightful and appreciative to be in total silence. India is very noisy with its constant honking and motorbikes.
Kerala is also known for the iconic Chinese fishing nets along the Fort Kochi shoreline. In the evenings people gather by the shore where the fishermen sell their catch.
It was at a yoga studio in Kerala that I had a wonderful yoga experience where the instructor had me do a head stand, something I hadn’t done in ages. That day I learned that yoga is also about physical memory and overcoming my fears.
