Asana at Turtle Bay

Spending most of my time in San Francisco it is easy to forget what it’s like to feel naturally warmed. But, just last week I was lucky enough to spend some time soaking up rays at Turtle Bay on the North Shore of Oahu. The heat of the sun to matches your body temperature; no need for socks, sweatshirts, or really even pants! That warmth allows the body to go into a deep asana practice. Here are some of the fun poses I got to offer in gratitude to the Sun the Earth and that eternal loving Energy that shines in all living things!

YMCA Campers are having a blast this summer at Yoga and Arts Camp!

Question for Campers: “What is your favorite part of Yoga and Arts Camp?”

Answers: “I liked it all!” “Deep relaxation.” “Meditation jars.” “The Zendo at Green Gulch.”

One of the highlights of our 3rd through 5th grade week was taking a trip to the Green Gulch Farm. Campers really loved meditation in the Zendo, smelling, touching, and even tasting some of the leaves and fruits on the farm, and learning about the honey bees complete with a treat; honey on a sorrel leaf! One of the quotes from our thank you letter pretty much sums it up, “I really liked Green Gulch farm I want to live there SO badly! I hope I can go there again.”
