Day 86 OC-Yogaworks-Geo Moskios

Peace at Sunrise

Peace at Sunrise

Not a soul on the glassy water, not a sound on the endless sea, the water-lovin’ YoYos sadly realize that our soon fleetin’ days on our funky “om away from home”, sailboat is comin’ to a close.

How proud we’ve been watchin’ The Ru; the wise, kind, old, “impressive controller of 7” long sea legs”, grandfather cocker spaniel, peacefully sleep through massive Pelican attacks.  This intimate space has brought us closer, literally… and through it all, the master “work around” YoYos have learned that the important things in life have nothin’ to do with stoves that yield heat, refrigerators that produce cold or toilets that flush with a simple flip of a handle. Nope, for these floatin’ YoYos, life’s significance is uncoverin’ the “most excellent” yoga, in hopes you’ll find bliss throwin’ down your well-worn mat in many super- inspired spaces.

Geo Moskios

Enterin’ the bright, smilin’, happy space that brands Yogaworks; we were greeted by the shinin’ eyes and open heart of today’s veteran teacher Geo Moskios, the first ever yogi to be invited to chat on Oprah’s famous couch.

Drawn to yoga as a way to unite the physical, intellectual and wondrous after a testing time in Vietnam, world-explorer Geo, trained extensively worldwide with several masters including Indra Devi, the first lady of yoga. Internalizing the wisdom of his gurus and drawin’ from wide-ranging travels,  intuitive Geo combined his discoveries to conceive a challengin’, distinctive, breath to movement, Power Class that was about to kick these YoYo butts all over beautiful Newport Beach.

Ru Gently Sleeps

Opening this fluid practice with a free-flowin’ integration series, Geo rapidly evolved into a seamlessly choreographed progression of strength and stretch sequences, ensuring every muscle was ignited throughout  this innovative leg-liftin’, butt-burnin’, body twistin’,  chataranga “galore” series.   Worked out and worked over, these sweatin’ YoYos were taken by this seriously joyful teacher whose rich life experiences were more than inspirin’ to a couple of road-trippin’, ocean-floatin’ YoYos.

But for now, its’ back to the boat to overlook the vast promise of the sea, and treasure one more pelican attack… while The Ru gently sleeps.
