Parlez vous Francais?

December 8, 2010

No. I don’t. But that’s not going to stop me from trying….

After years of dreaming and months of saving, I am so grateful to be embarking on a trip to indulge all my traveling desires–I’m going to France! The planning began a few months ago when I joined an organization that places interested workers with organic farmers interested in sharing their knowledge and skills (click here for more info). There were so many amazing farms to choose from! Eventually I decided to stay at Château Anand, in the town of Saint Pierre de Maille.

“Welcome to our beautiful pink castle “Chateau Anand” on 37 acres of hilly oak and pine forests. Enjoy our river, walking paths in the woods, sauna, beautiful surroundings of amazing french villages with their special atmosphere and cosy traditions… share yoga, meditation, bonfire, swimming, musik, healthy yummy vegetarian food, good mood and much more! Learn how to create beautiful landscape, do some planting or take care of plants, how to conduct small building projects with our professional staff, help with cooking, painting and much more… We are looking for people willing and happy to learn, willing and happy to work, willing and happy to share. Positive attitude essential! See you soon ! We speak french, english and german.”

How could I say no? …….Afterall, no is one of the only words I CAN say in French! 🙂 If you have any contacts, advice or virtual hugs, feel free to share them in the comments.

Au Revoir,

Rainy Day Update!!

October 23, 2010

Hello lovelies! So it’s raining today….but we still want to practice, right? We’re moving our practice from the wet grass of Balboa Park to the warm confines of my house! I have a yoga studio overlooking my garden in Ocean Beach, and I will be serving hot tea to start our practice. Join us at 4pm, at my house (address deleted) to explore Vishuddha and Ajna tonight!

Shanti!

Outdoor Yoga Update

October 14, 2010

Please note that starting this Saturday the 16th, I will be holding my outdoor classes at 4pm rather than 5pm. I love feeling the sunlight on my body, and I think that direct sunlight is an essential part of the outdoor yoga experience. Please join us this Saturday as we explore Manipura (solar plexus) and Anahata (heart), two of your bodies vibrant energy fields. Meet us at 4pm at the corner of Juniper and Balboa!
