A small, peaceful and magical world exists inside the Wild Rose studio. It is Eden in a hidden cave. A familiar and enticing scent beckons me as I ride up to the beauty that invites me in. A little jungle paradise captures my eye and I am drawn toward the crimson umbrella tilted slightly over the Thai chair sitting in the garden. Throughout my weeks in Chiang Mai, this view has stolen my attention many times during my practice.
As I walk down the long, dark corridor softly lit by candlelight and enter the sitting room, my eyes grow wide at the exquisite beauty of the space. The actual studio is reminiscent of a tree house sitting high up in a rainforest canopy. The room is made of dark wood, with an open door out to the garden and windows all the way around dressed in iron artistry. Glowing string lights hang carefully around the walls creating an ambient and meditative surrounding. During a practice, the wind blows gently through the palm trees and into the studio providing pleasant relief from the heat.
