Washington Monument Yoga – Washington, D.C.

4 Nov

August kind of blew up my progress…..for real! August was the month of making HUGE progress. I guess it takes 3 months to start noticing changes in your body.

August was when I surprised myself by getting a headstand, and the ability to press into it! Woah, core strength. I was so excited I swear I spent all month upside down. Who am I kidding? I’m still an inversion junkie. There is something so liberating & adrenaline kicking about being upside down.

Do I look like the Washington Monument? This is my all time favorite Stop Drop and Yoga moment!

Focusing – Venice, Italy

28 Oct

So engrossed in finding the right angle to compose my shot of one the roof features of Hatfield House was I, that I had walked through a well sign-posted gate completely oblivious to the fact that I was in a private area of the property.  Selective attention is the phenomenon that causes us to miss often obvious features of the environment around us when we are concentrating on one thing in particular.

Wonder if she knew her feet were wet?

Guatape, Columbia

22 Oct

Guatape has just over taken Salento as my favourite little town in the world. This place is tiny, stunning, colourful and surrounded by natural beauty. We stayed in a gorgeous hostel, El Encuentro, with views of the lake and La Piedra. This morning we went against our regular belief system and did exercise on  a Sunday. We climbed the 740 stairs to the top of La Piedra, a huge rock coming up through the middle of Guatape. The views were stunning and worth every step.
This place is just wonderful!

Competitive Travel-Yoga – Byron Bay, Queensland, Australia

21 Oct

Competitive travel-yoga guide (for dummies and winos)

It has come to my attention, that travelers now, will take yoga to the extreme, I imagine to show people, “Hey! I’m flexible, AND I travel!”Screw the sweaty hot yoga classroom, or yoga room, or…(I’m not sure what it is exactly), you can do a tree pose? I can do a tree pose in front of the ocean! Child’s pose, ha! Child’s play unless you’re doing it on a mountain top with an eagle eating a fish’s head in the background!

Since this new “competitive travel yoga” has come about, I’ve decided to take it down a notch, and let other travellers know, that it’s not unattainable to compete with these yoga gurus, even if we don’t do yoga on a daily basis, or monthly basis, or ever really. It’s all about inner peace, and wine.

POSE 1, THE PALM TREE
This pose is perfect for those who don’t want to go on a bike ride or run with a friend or loved one. it allows you to blend in to your travel surroundings, avoiding unnecessary exercise. It is also good for hunchbacks looking to “hunch-it-out”.

POSE 2 THE ALMOST COBRA IN AN EMPTY THEATRE WINE SIP
this move is perfect for when you sneak wine into a movie theatre, and no one else is there. You paid $20 to watch a movie, so take advantage by drinking wine and doing a yoga move. Or a kind of yoga move.

POSE 3 THE HALF TWIST HAMMOCK NAP
don’t let this pose fool you, it isn’t easy, it takes about 2 hours of afternoon drink, and a hammock. Notice the focus on leg and chin placement. He has found his happy place.

POSE 4 THE DOWNWARD DRUNKEN DOG
Let’s face it. Yoga, traveling, beaches and beer, are all hard things to put together. But this majestic yoga move that I’ve created, allows for all of this to flow easily, while making all of your travel-yoga friends super jealous that you’re on the beach doing yoga and they’re not. Because that’s what it’s all about.

Now that you have some tips for a great yoga-travel day, try them out in your favorite travel spot! A trash dump, On top of an elderly person, or even at your local liquor store. Get out there and discover your inner peace!
(My inner peace is wine, when it’s in my belly)
That’s my 2 cents

LOL great post :)

Istanbul, Turkey

20 Oct

Everything in Istanbul is just so beautiful. On our third day there we, of course, started our morning at an adorable café. I think cafes are always my favorite when traveling abroad. In a city like Houston, we just don’t have the luxury of great outdoor cafes. Between the humidity and the fast paced lifestyle, it’s so hard to just sit and enjoy life and all its beauty. After our coffee we began our fabulous rainbow stair descent towards Istanbul’s Modern Art Museum where we wandered for a while before heading to the Spice Bazaar.

The Acropolis – Athens, Greece

A hot hot summer in Athens. Take some notes: 1. Do not visit Athens in summer ! (in fact do not visit the Acropolis in summer :p)

Note 2: Don’t miss the opportunity to visit Bernard Tschumi’s museum of Acropolis. The restaurant on the top of it is just great!

“lt is made of three concepts: light, movement, and a tectonic and programmatic element. Together these characteristics turn the constraints of the site into an architectural opportunity, offering a simple and precise museum with the mathematical and conceptual clarity of ancient Greek buildings.”

Note 3: You can actually take photos with five cores! These are original ones! The sixth is in British. No need to hide from museum stuff and to be embarrassed when they cry out “No photos please!”

Weekend – New York City

I had the best weekend in New York and I think the greatest part about the big apple is that just around every corner is a new adventure.

Mykonos, Greece

5 Oct

We were headed to Mykonos, and we didn’t have to wake up at the crack of dawn. It was great, we slept in a little, had a relaxing breakfast at Lumiere’s, instead of the busy buffet, and then headed out for a day at the beach. We got on a bus and headed to Elia Beach. We didn’t get to see any of old town but we got to see a lot of the famous white square buildings as we drove, and soon we’d be relaxing. The excursion included 2 beach loungers with an umbrella and lunch. This was perfect, I didn’t need to bring my whole house to the beach like we normally do. We got to just relax and splash in the Mediterranean, because how can you go all the way to Greece and not get in the beautiful blue water?
