The cool season is here and in the garden we're harvesting the last of the summer produce: zucchini, eggplants, peppers and basil. Salads full of wintertime greens grace the table--so far we've been enjoying a variety of lettuces, chard of all colors, red winter and lacinato kale, collards, mustard spinach, giant red mustard, garden cress, wild arugula, Italian parsley, cilantro, dandelion greens, endive and radish tendergreens. One of my favorite things about wintertime gardening in Las Vegas is the opportunity to harvest one variety of greens and replace it with another, keeping the salad bowl interesting throughout the dark time of the year.

Desert Yoga School's Winter Posture/Asana Workshop Series is coming up!
These mixed-level workshops are intended to provide yoga practitioners with the knowledge and techniques that will help them make progress with their postures. Small groups and two instructors allow for individualized attention. The material presented to each practitioner will be adjusted to match their ability, and students can expect to leave each workshop with a practice plan that will help them advance their postures to the next level.

Each of these 4.5-hour workshops includes:
-A well-rounded asana practice
-An hour of focused work on the workshop's specific topic

My first semester at UNLV is coming to a close--I'm full of gratitude for the opportunity to share yoga practice with so many delightful university students! Next semester's enrollment is open, so spread the word to friends and family members who would like to earn an elective credit and receive the gift of self-practice! More info on the UNLV website.
The short days and long nights are here--keep yourself happy and active by getting on your mat and doing some yoga practice! Hoping to see you soon.
