OM Sweet Home – Lake Tahoe

What’s a YoYo to do after 100 days on the road?

Piles of laundry comes to mind…along with perusin’ mountains of mail and takin’ YoYoYogimobile to the doctor after its border to border marathon; remindin’ these happy road trippers that the eternal crap ‘o life goes on…even while havin’ a most excellent adventure.

Fall at Lake Tahoe

Fall at Lake Tahoe

Today, the YoYos surround themselves with everything familiar.  The “just like clockwork” changin’ colors of the majestic trees, the sparklin’ diamonds reflectin’ off  the icy waters of the cobalt lake and the crisp feel of the mountain air that’s forcin’ our nothin’ but flip-flop wearin’ expanded feet into our somehow shrunken snow mocks.  Ahhhh… the weather it is changin’ at speed ‘o sound here in Lake Tahoe and the tad homesick YoYos are pleased to be sportin’ beanies and fuzzy socks, if only for the next few days, while mappin’ out our “most expanded” YoYo plans.

100 Days of bringin’ the “best of the west”, has clued the “learnin’ as we go” YoYos, that we’ve scarcely scratched the surface of this amazin’ world of yoga.  The body stretchin’, peace-providin’ teachers that we’ve met seemingly take a much deeper dive into their most elevatin’, stimulatin’ world, through enriching workshops and life-changin’ retreats.   The “unable to go back to original form”, YoYo minds understand they must explore what goes on in those mysterious sanctuaries; Anusara jams, 3- hour ‘butt in air” inversion classes, alignment practicum, flyin-yogi clinics,  heart-explodin’ seminars and, all the while, attempt to paraphrase  those “most excellent” experiences on the virtual pages of YoYoYogi.com.  So…it’s off we go!

After a few sacred days with mat in front of fire and Bryan Kest’s, kick ass i-pod downloads in our ears, the YoYos and The Ru, in the once again ready to rumble YoYoYogimobile, will take off to the wonderment of Northern California’s wine country.  Here, we’ll be explorin’ those purple mountains majesties above the fruited plains, visit Napa/Sonoma’s signature studios, and  fill our explodin’ minds with the teachings of world renowned Anusara teacher, Sianna Sherman at  Community Yoga in the eye-poppin’ village of Sonoma, California …

And in the evenin’…of course, partake of the vine!

YoYoYogi… Up Close and Personal in P-Town!

My o my.. how time FLYS when you’re blissin’ in the super-stylin’ “100 year old”  bricks and mortar studio of YoYoYogi!

It was only 4 fleetin’ weeks ago that yogis and the super-curious began their bare-footin‘  journey through our unknown doors.  Seems the seriously fun mission of YoYoYogi…. to bring thick and thin, young and old, big dudes and tiny grandmas together, under one beautiful, historic roof to experience many of the BEST teachers in Portland “unleashed and uncensored”…  has really caught on.

Since our first momentous day, the “never done yoga, can’t touch my toes” variety, has now… done yoga, and is workin’ down the leg and toward that foot… quite nicely thank you .  The brief-case slingin’ sort have found themselves “chillin’” and oftentimes moanin’ in an unexpected sweet release. Super-duper yogis have found themselves upside-down, inside-out and backwards.  And, those of the venturesome ilk have found that dance, martial arts and yoga is one hell of a super-fun soup as they experience the grace of a warrior in  “Samurai” Yoga”.

New friends have been made in the “Fun of Flying” team sport of AcroYoga and bodies have been stretched an inch in Yogaaaahhh bliss.   And, smiles, voices, strength and breath have been re-discovered in classes with goofy names that the YoYoYogi family of “off the charts” teachers have unleashed on this unsuspecting community. What a month it has been!

We hope you’ll keep on keepin’ on and if you haven’t checked out our $28 First Month of Unlimited Yoga… What are you Waitin’ For???

Tell your friends, tell your strangers… this mind-bendin’, body-stretchin, peace providin’ Yoga is… nothin’ but cool!
