window shopping!

I had so much fun window shopping at the little touristy bazaar in Arambol with Jes.

This year marks the twentieth anniversary of  my yoga practice.  It is a sacred gift I carry with me wherever I go.  My mother introduced me to the benefits of yoga when I was a senior in high school, and we would go together every week.  We loved the teachers at Jivamukti Yoga in the heart of the East Village, when it was still a small studio.

I was very excited to finally take a class in India, the true birthplace of yoga.  Sadly, Jes’ favorite teacher Vijay left town so it was not the class we were expecting.  Even an average yoga class is better than no practice at all, right? It is a total treat to do yoga outside on a rooftop with gorgeous views of coconut tress and crazy crows spiraling around the sky.  It made me forget about the hustle bustle of motorbikes and tourists and pushy shopkeepers downstairs.

I also rarely get to have a nice long class in New York, this one was over 2 hours!  Most of the deep stretching (my favorite part) happens in the last part of class, and this often left out because of time constraints.  It made me miss practicing with Dharma Mittra, whose 2 1/2 hour master classes helped me survive photo grad school.

After the long flight and the stress that comes before a long voyage it made my body and mind feel heavenly.   I never met a practicing yogi that complained about having trouble falling asleep at night. Somehow I managed to completely avoid getting jet lagged too!

The lovely view from the rooftop of the yoga studio.

all this garbage makes me so sad…

Yummy Indian spiced scrambled eggs, I can’t to to try to make this for my husband, when I get home…

The view out my bedroom window, I switched to a larger room with a balcony for $2 more! :-)

Most of my clothes already looks like it was made in India! Ha!

Balcony reflections.

Pink on pink!  Someone left this Lonely Planet guide on the balcony.

Next up on our tasting adventure was Iron Horse Vineyards.  We were craving some bubbly on an exceptionally warm sunny day. We tried the sparkling flight and each shared sips of their lovely wine. Thankfully, it was food truck Friday so we were able to much on some fresh bruschetta. The produce in California is exceptional too.
