It has become a bit of a ritual amongst Luang Prabang’s expat yoga enthusiasts to wind down the week with a Friday night class at Ock Pop Tok. And who better to lead us into the weekend than our own local teacher Khoun, who knows just how to give her class a boost of energy, a butt-kicking and a mental makeover that’ll make you come back for more.
Friday evening classes generally start in a standing posture to keep the energy level high, and you can bet that Khoun usually has something up her sleeve to deepen your practice, whether it’s a warrior three alignment exercise against the wall or a sequence that leads into an oh-so-challenging forward split. Don’t worry beginners, this class is fun and we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We can guarantee that you’ll walk out with a smile.
Following yoga, Friday night is also pizza night at the “secret” pizza place just outside the center of town. We’re talking authentic Italian food that simply melts in your mouth. After an amazing yoga class, it’s a guilt-free foodie experience. So next time you’re thinking about what to do on a Friday night in Luang Prabang, consider yoga and pizza. It might just be a ritual you’ll adopt.
Here are some pictures of last Friday’s class.
