Reflexology Path? Taipei City Wall

City Wall Taipei
The very pretty urban park at City Wall entailed a slope with mulch surface as well as a stone path (reflexology path see below photo).  This one was a very pleasant one with big flat uniform stones.

I loved taking off my shoes walking back and forth between the Beiman Subway Station and our hotel in downtown Taipei.

However, I never saw anyone else taking off their shoes, and yes, the area was never very busy when we passed through there, although there is heavy motor cycle traffic.

Could it be that this was not an official reflexology path?  I noticed other areas embellished with river rocks, at times in unusual places, e.g. under a bench.  And there were these tiny pebble squares along a sidewalk which I started referring to as reflexology paths for 👶.

Taiwan: The first Reflexology Path

Regal about to work his foot reflexes
The first day in Taipei (Oct 2017), we headed to a park at the river.  We both are river people.  I made sure our hotel was in walking distance to the Tamsui.
We came across this Reflexology path :-); it was literally screwed into the ground.  Wait, I thought they had real pebble paths in Asia.  Not what I expected at all.  I was perplexed and amused and forgot to walk on it (jet leg), but Regal did.  This was an indication, however how popular reflexology was in Taiwan.  Great.   There will be additional posts on Taiwanese reflexology paths.  It was so much fun to experience them.

Thanks for visiting.

India Part Thirteen: Teaching Chair Yoga at Shri Jasnath Asan

Getting ready for pre-sunrise yoga
I had no idea these photos existed, but so pleased they do.  Many thanks to my buddy Michelle from Ireland who shared these on Facebook.  

Yoga at Shri Jasnath Asan took place before sunrise and breakfast Monday-Friday.  Here we are getting ready for my chair yoga class; love the mood in the room, us all being bundled up; it was a bit chilly in the morning.
