Zhuorui Fu is a traveller stopped by İstanbul. Our paths were crossed when she wanted to capture the narrow roads of Istanbul, with the help of a Istanbuler. İstanbul Yoga and I; has been shaped by Zhu’s eyes.
Our first conversation was on the phone. When she asked me where is best place representing Istanbul, I said Balat with no doubt. Balat is a place representing the past and the present of Istanbul beautifully with its local and touristic aspects, artisan culture, complexity, hospitality, traditions and plus with new hipster wave. As a yoga, traveling and any kind of good project person, I am volunteering for this shooting. For the yoga place, we used Hara Yoga Center.
With this 2 min. 56 sec. long video I am inviting you to see Yoga, Istanbul and I full of narrow streets, cats, a Selda Bagcan song, traditional coffee shops (for just men), auctions and acro yoga.
