Woke up:  La Paz, Mexico

Went to sleep:  La Paz, Mexico

Yoga     

This morning, immediately after the Net, I dropped in on the yoga class offered in the parking lot outside the marina office.  Peter kind of made me go.  He said, “They’re doing yoga out there.  You better get going.”  It was really great.  Mostly a good stretch class, which alone is what I need after days without.

The teacher, Annie, has been offering yoga – for free – to anyone here at Marina de la Paz, for 20 years.  Two times per year she meets with a professional physical therapist who helps her to update and refine the routine she offers.

At one point, I opened my eyes to find all of the students looking at me in Tree Pose.  “How do you do that?” they asked.  I pointed out the secret was to push the sole of your foot into the side of your thigh and push back with your thigh into the sole of your foot.  “Push! Push! Push!” I said.  Several of the women tried this new approach and were thrilled with the results.  “Wow!  I’ve never been able to hold this pose like this before.”

Later in the afternoon, I walked with Ofilia, from Silver Seas, to a nearby grocery outlet.  We stocked up once again and used a cab to bring it all back home.  The cab fare?  Fifty pesos ($3.65).
