Backpackers Hostel "J-Hoppers" & "Hana Hostel"

What I am interested in

Hello! This is Tomomi from Hiroshima Hana Hostel!

Are you into sports? Do you do any exercises on a regular basis?

I have played basketball for about 8 years when I was a student. These days, however, I really don’t play any sports. Recently, I was shocked when I was out of breath after climbing up the stairs…

Still, I am interested in yoga !

As you know, yoga is really good for one’s health and beauty. A few years ago, a friend of mine invited me to join a yoga class. It was a taught by a friend of hers and we were only three or four students. I really loved the class and the atmosphere. For six months I attended the class and I was always looking forward to it!



During class, there was mellowed music and a nice smell in the room. Also, it was a very calm and quiet place. When I went there, I did not need to think much and could just relax. Other times I could focus on only one thing, especially during slow breath exercises.

Sadly, one day, our yoga teacher left Hiroshima to study more about yoga and improve her qualifications as yoga teacher. After that, I didn’t do yoga for a long time. These days, however, I started again all by myself. With a yoga book I try to do the exercises at home, but sometimes, someone from my family starts talking to me or my dog and cat demand for attention. It can be really tough to find a quiet spot, maybe especially at my home.

So a few days ago I looked up some yoga classes in Hiroshima, but it takes over 6000 Yen a month on average. It is more expensive than I expected! So for now, I just do it by myself! I don’t mind that much anymore doing it at home ;)

Please share your favorite sport activities! I am curious to hear about it!
