Today was the day The Ru; the wise, kind, old, “soon to be published” grandfather cocker spaniel had been waitin’ for since bein’ stuffed in the YoYo mobile and forced to explore parts unknown to begin this epic adventure. So happy was author Ru, that “Down Dogisms” was to be made available in “About Us” in the YoYoYogi blog that we celebrated by goin’ to that ‘hood great writers had gone before…The Alberta Arts District. Here, he could gather fodder for his plagiarized reflections. Swaggering Ru, felt at “one” with this avant-garde community of coffee houses, old-school barber shops, toy stores, head shops, rib pits, stores made out of tin and wine stores sellin’ zin. A day of relaxin’, was just what the 3 of needed… knowin’ a most welcome treat and thorough butt-kickin’ was waitin’ for us on the other side of town.

Now, Every roadtrippin’ yogi needs a place to call h“OM”e and when the YoYo’s feel the need for speed, it’s all about Portland’s, “turn up the volume” yoga…CorePower Yoga-NW! Vigorous and humblin’, these “power-worshippin’” yogis love this potent, super-sweaty, swarmin’ room with killer music, monster humidifiers, and ever-changin’ inspired flows. It was here, in this addicted yoga community that the YoYos first laid eyes on James Grant… doin’ some kinda something while standin’ on what appeared to be one finger with legs flyin’ ever which way. Now, we’d had been hangin’ with yoga for years, but never had we seen anything like this… and to think, today, the courageous YoYos were to challenge themselves beyond previous capacity at this accomplished teacher’s, 90 minute- 100 degree Core 3 class.

Startin’ slowly and quickly pickin’ up the dramatic pace, this artistic guide kept our minds busy while leadin’ our bodies in hot pursuit of that continually expandin’ edge throughout this inspired, inventive and super-original flow. Blarin’ tunes that rocked our world and messages that melted our hearts, this innovative leader reiterated our unwaverin’ belief that there IS… No Place like h”om”e.
