Yoga, Tae Kwon Do, Korean Classes Traditional Ashtanga Yoga (Mysore-Style) PNU Ashtangi83

Hi,

Depending on what you're looking for in yoga classes - I'd highly recommend the shala (studio) in PNU.  I've been practicing there since June and have thoroughly enjoyed it.  It's run by Korean staff and there is an English speaking teacher. 

 

Ashtanga is the oldest form of hatha yoga and they teach the traditional method here.

Message for Anyone Who Links Me Via Pusan Web/Koreabridge i agree. i have a lot of posts about Korea kat

 since the transition my blog hasn't been relinked even though most of my blogs are about korea. on top of that, this new design isn't very helpful to newcomers as they haven't brought over the posts from the old site.  they don't even have any information on korean festivals that are cancelled. to me its not pusanweb anymore. its somebody who doesn't give a crap web.

Masters in Education or Teaching Licensure in Korea my findings on distance ed jakerue

hey I have been looking at programs online for a few months now.  There are lots of MEds that don't lead to licensure in Canada or the US.  Curriculum is a popular one to do online.  

As for getting a licensure I found a few from the US - none at all from Canada as no province will certify you through distance alone.  I am not sure how the teaching cert will...

C4 Visa and short-term contract  A C4's fine for a 3 month carrotpatchkid

 A C4's fine for a 3 month job but be careful if you're hoping to work for more than that.  You should be able to find a plethora of contracts of www.eslcafe.com in the Job Forums.

 

Good luck

Question from a reader: giving gifts to a director From what I remember, giving LFCfanatic9

From what I remember, giving fruits nicely packaged is always a good gift to give. I never gave a gift, but I think that would be a very neutral safe thing.

A nice box of apples was like $20-$25 at the time in 2005.

coffee grinder! most locate! Depends on what you want and mattsid

Depends on what you want and how much you're willing to spend, but they are pretty plentiful if you know where to look.

If you want a cheap whirly blade thing (not the best), just go to any branch of Starbucks. Costs about 50 bucks. They also have a better burr grinder that is over 100 bucks which would do a fairly good job.

Many of the major supermarket chains sell wooden...

Import tax and duty For anyone interested I found blackmint

For anyone interested I found out some info.

If the total cost (of item, shipping, insurance) is less then 150,000 Won ($120) you do not pay anything. If it's over that, for most goods is 8% Custom Duties and 10% Tax.

Import tax and duty More trouble than it's worth. Cliff_Dangers

More trouble than it's worth. Why post a 100P bike from the UK? For the same cost as posting your bike you could probably just buy a bike here. My wife just bought a new bike from Home plus for W100,000.

canadian couple in Busan need help with E2 visa up until a couple of years 143busan

up until a couple of years ago, foreigners could take a ferry to fukuoka, go to the korean embassy there, and have an E2 visa stamped in their passport and start work immediately,  but in recent years, maybe less than two, this has all changed.  the process of obtaining an E2 visa is much more complicated than this.

you've even got to have an interview at a korean embassy in...

canadian couple in Busan need help with E2 visa if its her first e-2 visa, barbel
if its her first e-2 visa, then it is true, she has to get her first visa from her native country. if it is her 2nd/3rd etc,then she can go to japan. if it is her 2nd visa, then the boss either doesn't understand about the laws of immigration or there is a problem with her paperwork.
