Small Island – Big News

Friday, January 7th, 2011

Photo: Oscar Hildalgo for NY TIMES

When you live on an island that is 2 by 4 miles it can feel as vast as the ocean around you and as tiny as the space between you and your neighbor’s walls.  Word travels fast, and far.  We call it the coconut telegraph.

We at Yoga on the Beach are so excited that the clickity-clack of static on the coconut telegraph found the New York Times, as we are part of a feature this Sunday in the Travel section called 36 Hours in Key West.

Sarah Wildman and Shayla Harris popped in right before the holidays to explore our southern home.  They captured a part of the Key West experience that we truly love. Connecting with the locals, they followed the beat, the passion, the beauty and the spirit of living here in Key West creating a wonderful article and video experience for those who may want to join in the fun.  It was delightful to have them take yoga with us, sit and chat about our little island, and share a great breakfast at Sarabeth’s.

Shortly after the “ladies” departed we got a call from Oscar Hildalgo, a photographer with the NY Times.  He was down to do follow up photos.  A deeply spiritual man, with quite an eye for the still picture and a big heart, Oscar joined us for two classes during our cold snap.  The spirit of YOTB embraced him, as he captured some beautiful pictures in the slideshow that accompanies the article.

Thank you to Sarah, Shayla and Oscar, our experience working, playing and sharing yoga with you was a delicious experience.  Your sense of life passion expressed in your work is apparent and a pleasure to be in the presence of.

If you’d like to share your experience taking classes with us to future YOTB students, take a moment to review our classes in the accompanying YOTB page in the article.  We are so very grateful!

First Day Greetings!

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

It was a most magnificent morning at Yoga on the Beach as we kicked off our season.  The ocean was flat calm and the mostbeautiful shade of blue.  As Don begin to bring us to center and inward I was completely distracted by a pod of dolphins leaping behind him as if to say welcome back!   I breathed in their joy, and breathed out deep appreciation to them.

A slight breeze kept us cool, as the blue of the sky brought a sense of spaciousness to the practice.


Supine, Divine

As our practice took us onto our backs I looked up at the green of the pines, and noticed a few birds observing us as we stretched our legs and back.  The feeling of welcome was all around us.

Embraced by the warmth of the sun we continued our practice to honor the full moon today in moon salutation.   Opening the side body is such a delight, as we breathed through our ribs like gills opening and expanding all around our hearts.  Ahhhh!

Today I felt appreciation all around me in nature and with my fellow students.  Tomorrow I look forward to sharing this experience with you again, virtually or on the beach.
