Hi everyone here,
I arrived in Phonom Penh late April have signed a contract to work part time as an adviser for Krama yoga cambodia, an NGO which helps vulnerable women and children through teachings of yoga in so many ways.
First, I was shocked to find out that everything is much more expensive if 1.you do not speak the language 2. If your color is different i.e fair skinned asian and or with caucasian look?
Although I am learning to just make sure I pay as the local people said I should I still get ripped off left and right at the flower market for example!
I am a certified Iyengar yoga teacher who teaches full time here at our Nataraj studios. Here we also have price for Khmer clients much lower that the foreign clients pay. I also do not find this a fair treatment.
I am hoping this will become a bit more even and fair for all very soon by way of insisting that my courses have same price for everyone!
