Jeremy and I walking the fields at China Ranch Date Farm in Tecopa.
December's backbends workshop was both fun and intense.
Namaste, friends!

The new year has begun! The dormant fruit trees and grape vines have been pruned, mulch spread around the garden, and seeds selected for spring planting. Now we're waiting to see what other surprises the weather has in store for us!

Downtown 3rd Farmers Market
Jeremy and I are grateful to all our friends who have stopped by to visit us at the Downtown 3rd Farmers Market. It's such a delight to share a cup of hot herbal tea and introduce newcomers to the other vendors. Haven't made it downtown to check it out yet? You're missing out on the city's freshest produce, perfect sourdough bread, freshly roasted coffee, local honey and more. The market is located in the old Downtown Transportation Center at Stewart and 4th Street. The historical building's huge copper dome is easily visible from the 95 freeway and parking is FREE for market-goers. We're there every Friday from 9 am-2 pm--and hopefully you'll be there soon, too!

Winter Posture Workshop Series
Thank you to all the Desert Yoga School students who attended the Winter Posture Workshops! Jeremy and I were overjoyed to share some of what we know about asana with Jen, Chris, Neelu, Karen, Mohamed, Connor, Katie, Julia, Steve, Francis, Jason, Lauren, Julie, Ashley and Thomas! It was particularly fun to help a longtime student who did her first headstand at our workshop in 2014. Five years later and now she is using advanced headstand variations as therapeutic tools for spinal health!

Introduction to Ashtanga Yoga at UNLV
The Spring 2019 semester is well underway at UNLV, and I've had the honor of introducing self-led yoga practice to almost 80 new yoga practitioners. Introductory courses are exciting to teach because of how quickly people's lives start to improve when they adopt a home yoga practice. Missed out this time? I'm scheduled to teach a condensed version of this course during UNLV's summer session #3, which runs from mid-July to mid-August. Get in touch if you want to know more!

March Yoga Practitioners' Potluck
Bring a plant-based (vegan) dish to share and bask in the company of others who are using yoga practice as a tool for self-betterment. Chat and snack, see what's up in the garden and maybe find a practice buddy.

The late frost gave the hot peppers lots of time to ripen this year!
