It’s true: a sustained yoga practice makes you a better traveler. Aside from the physical benefits, the mental practice enables me to suffer the many indignities of travel that simply are a part of the experience these days.

I love to travel–that’s clear. But getting there can be a pain in the neck. Honestly–many travelers have a lower view. HAHA. When I’m on the road, I seek out a yoga studio nearby. For the last few mornings here in Redmond, Washington, I’ve been joining them for a 6:15am practice.svia

It all helps me appreciate my “home” studio, Laughing Lotus of Anchorage. Svia and Kim offer classes in several different disciplines–you should drop in and try a couple of different classes to see what works best for you.

They’re located in Anchorage off of the Old Seward Highway, near 57th St. (620 E. 57th Place). Call them at (907)243-9642.

In addition to their regular classes, Kim and Svia bring in a great variety of guest teachers, as well as hosting and sponsoring a variety of events.

Lindsay Britt will be here Aug. 7-9 for a series of workshops:
Aug. 7: Acro Yoga, combining Thai massage, yoga and acrobatics.
Aug. 8: Yin Yoga. This is a three-hour practice, where you hold your poses for 3-5 minutes for d-e-e-p stretching!
Aug. 9: Inversions. Yep–just what it sounds like. Get upside-down!! Headstands, handstands, shoulder stands–the works. Playful–safe–supportive.
Aug. 9: Bodywork and dessert. Fun and nurturing. Sounds cool–be sure and bring something for dessert!!
Cost is $150 for the whole workshop. Call the studio to learn more.

WIN A FREE CLASS at Laughing Lotus. I’m grateful to my friends Mel Roller and Janine Amon for getting me to try a practice at Laughing Lotus.

So–drop me a note ([email protected]) and tell me why you would like a free practice. This is a simple enter-to-win contest, but I like to read the entries, share with the class and so forth!

“Namaste”. This is a greeting we use in our Yoga class. From its Sanskrit origins, the best translation I can find is this: “I salute the Light of God in you.”
