Yoga + Woods = Happiness

One of the highlights of my summer has been taking my yoga teaching outside. The recent People's Yoga Campout was no exception!

Longtime friend and yoga buddy Alison Alstrom and I co-taught at the really, truly beautiful sanctuary of Big Bear Camp outside of Walton, OR. Paige of Eatin' Alive made us delicious meals in the expansive outdoor kitchen, complete with a ceiling of ripening grapes dangling down from the sky and into our mouths. Michelle led the swimming excursions while others rested in hammocks or hiked on the land. Our evening smashmitten and campfire antics made for much laughter and some pretty hilarious and incomplete revivals of 80's pop music. The morning and evening songs sung by our hosts, Tonia and Hale made the goodness had by all complete.

I couldn't think of a sweeter way to weave together reverence for the Earth body with our human bodies.
