Welcome To My Blog!
My name is Annie, and I am a junior studying the Psychology of Meditation at Oregon State University. I love to do yoga, meditate, and rock climb, and music is a huge part of my life. This summer, I will be studying abroad in Angers, France! I desire to independently research holistic health and wellness practices.
On this blog, I will take pictures of my experiences abroad, discussing topics specifically related to comparative yoga and meditation in France. I will also be delving into my overall experience in Europe, and connecting my love and taste of music with my journey. On Annie Goes To France you'll find: cross-cultural differences in flow and practice, views about meditation and yoga in France, challenges that local practitioners face, different branches of yoga specific to the Angers region, and diverse perceptions of the medicinal values of yoga and meditation in France versus the United States. Further, I will delve deep into my entire study abroad experience, including the do's and dont's as I learn more about the culture and myself. I am deeply passionate about the importance of studying abroad and am excited to share my experiences with you!
