Yoga is not new to me, I went to yoga studio when I was 10. Back then I was just a kid (was flexible) curious about the stuff everyone’s talking about and didn’t have any idea about meditation and relaxation. But 10 years later when I came back to Yoga, it totally means different to me. I need yoga to save me from distress, insomnia and neck pain/ stiff neck… ughhh I’m so old.
But trust me, I’m not the only person living here having such problems, everyone seems to be stressed out here. Hence it’s so precious for me to have a quiet place at the heart of the city that could let me breath!
Yoga Bambam is one of the coolest yoga studios I’ve been, located at Sheung Wan, the heart of the city but keeping you away from the hustle and bustle. It’s surrounded by small vendors, cafes and restaurants. Since it’s on the ground floor, you can enjoy the street view while stretching your body.
After an introduction course, I joined the Hatha Yoga course every Sunday afternoon. My instructor Melanie is a friendly and energetic lady, her class could be really dynamic and interactive.
Usually my yoga class finishes at 4:30, snack time! Fortunately Yoga Bambam is in between Sheng Wan and Sai Ying Pun, so I’d never worry about where to eat!
I put this cafe at the first place because I DO LOVE THEIR STRAWBERRY MILKSHAKE! Before I thought I would never like something in strawberry flavour cuz it’s too sweet, but Nosh obviously know how to blend the sweetness of fruits into the freshness of yogurt! Besides, their brunch are also my fav. It’s a good place to chill at and you should pay more attention to their interior wall murals.

This one is just next to Yoga Bam Bam, renowned for its pancake. I only tried once because this restaurant quite popular and is always full… I tried its pancake all day breakfast, honestly the pancake is really soft but the whole dish is too heavy for me, which means from another perspective you don’t need to worry about the portion.

Even though I’m not a British cuisine enthusiast (are you?) , I think Oldish is still worth a try. One of its selling point is the vintage interior design, and also the food quality is good too. Don’t miss it out when you pass by! (@Fahionmimo)
