Lifestyle in Finland – Erasmus experience

After one month of second semester here I currently have a lot of work but a lot of free time! This free time, I use it to enjoy every single day with sports, friends and snow! 

During last few weeks I tried some funny sports and I love them!

Air Yoga // Hot Yoga

This one has been a revelation to me! I’m now going every week to get some meditation moment, relaxation and stretching ! This sport is about Yoga but in a silk, you just let yourself go with the silk doing some Yoga positions but in the air (mostly). I became a real monkey! And actually, I feel like I should do more Yoga ’cause it relax me a lot and keep me calm! That’s why I decided to go to hot Yoga the week after which is Yoga in a warm room. It feel so good to stretch your body in give it some positive energy.

Pole Dance

No, I’m not becoming strip teaser or whatever but I tried Pole Dance and THIS is a real sport. It’s been very hard at the beginning to let myself go into the deep to turn around the pole, or to raise my leg when I already have my 2 hands and the other leg on the pole, it’s just about trusting yourself. It comes with time and at the end of the class I was able to do the exercices properly (but of course, forget the “sexy” part, I’m not able to make it esthetic yet!). I’m going back there this week and next week, I think I’ll become better and better and I could do some cool stuff on the pole!

As a sport this is one of the best I’ve ever tried, you really need to use all your muscles and contract your whole body. Plus, the atmosphere is very nice during courses and the other girls are here to help! But I might need magnesia for hands and body now cause the pole hurts so bad!

Hiking

As usual, sunny weekend are about “taking a walk” here! And actually, this one has been one of the best cause the sun was warm, shinning, the sky was blue and my two girls are the best. It’s almost spring here, snow is melting, birds are singing, we don’t really get the winter anymore! This hike has been awesome I almost felt like in the mountain and we saw amazing landscapes and paths. I definitely love weekends in Finland.
