Beer Tasting! August 31

Today we celebrated the last day of Winter with some Beer Tasting!

We tasted six different types of beers from various parts of Australia. There were beers from all the way over in Perth on the west coast to Sydney on the east, and one local favourite that is brewed right here in Byron Bay.

They won a 6-pack of beer for being the first team back with their Options Class list completed! In class they are studying ‘Health and Fitness’ this week, so their list of items reflected what they have been learning. They completed items on the list such as a photo of a team member doing the “Usain Bolt” pose in a shop that sells sports clothes, a selfie with a person who looks like they exercise regularly (though they are not sure he understood why they wanted a photo with him!), a photo with a beach towel that is bigger than the smallest team member, a photo of team members doing yoga poses in the park, and a photo of a team member showing three products which help us stay safe in the sun.

Paul’s Speak like a Native class had a very efficient team win the beer after completing the class list!

Juliano and Maria were very quick (and rather puffed out on their return) and completed their list by getting photos of Aussie slang words, for example, of a team member holding a pair of “Budgy Smugglers”, a photo of a “Hot Chick” and a “Hot Bloke”, a photo of the “Meat Pie Menu” and a photo of a tube of “Zinc Cream” at the Chemist.

The winning team from Becky’s Film and Music class was Vanessa, Leticia and Momoko.

They were the quickest team in their class to complete the items on their class list which were about Film, Music and Australiana, including getting photos of the two video shops in Byron Bay, a shop where you can buy records, a video of a busker, a photo of Aboriginal Art, a photo of a team member holding a boomerang and an example of Aboriginal language.

The winners of the BIG prize, for completing both the class list AND the general list were Richard and Emiko!

overall winner - emiko richard

After completing the list from Paul’s class by getting photos of “snags”, a carton of Coopers Pale Ale (beer) at the “bottlo”, and the “bouncer” at Beach Hotel, just to name a few, they then completed the general list too! This included getting a selfie at the Lighthouse, photos of the most easterly point of Australia, a photo using the barbecue at Wategos Beach, a photo of the waves at The Pass, a selfie at the Lexis English school sign and a photo of them doing a surf pose in front of BWT!

English and Yoga students enjoy their first week

Bikram-Yoga-article1

Mariko from Japan and Angela from Spain joined us this week on the Lexis Byron Bay English and Yoga programme. This course includes full time English classes plus the opportunity to take advantage of the many different types of yoga on offer in Byron Bay.

So far this week Mariko and Angela have practised Vinyasa flow with Alex at the Lexis Byron Bay Campus Yin Yoga and Ashtanga (modified primary series) at Creature Yoga in the Arts and Industry Park and Hot Yoga at Bikram Yoga, Byron Bay.

I asked them which had been their favourite so far and this is what they told me:

Mariko

“The Bikram Yoga was really good. It was my first experience of hot yoga and I sweated a lot but it wasn’t too hot or too difficult. The instructor spoke slowly and it was easy to understand, as well as follow the people in front of me. Afterwards, I felt really refreshed.”

Angela

“I liked the Ashtanga because it’s more dynamic and, personally,  I find it really difficult to hold a pose for a long time, such as in Yin Yoga. Bikram was really nice too, although it was a bit difficult at first because of the heat. It was worth it though because, afterwards,  I felt an amazing  sense of  peace and achievement.”

Mariko and Angela now have passes for both studios to last them the full two weeks, including the weekends, and they still have Vinyasa, Restorative Yoga, Yang to Yin and Hatha Yoga classes to try!
