Yoga Mala and More 2009

1 Comment

100_3230The New Year’s Day Yoga Mala was quite a success, as always!  At the beginning, my daughter counted 63 people.  There were more that rolled in, so I believe it’s safe to say we had around 70 for sure!  Beth and Eric did a fantastic job with the live vibration.  They are an amazing team for sure!  I chanted the second set with Beth and it was so much fun!  We took in $78 in cash and I dropped off the food that was donated today, and it weighed in at 303 lbs.  Wow.  That’s a lot of food.  We had several people with cameras running around, so as soon as I get the rest of the photos, I’ll have something up on the web site, and of course get a newsletter out to the world.  I’ll leave you with these photos for now.

After the Mala, we headed up the street with fresh flowers (that I forgot to bring to the Mala….shhh…don’t tell anyone) and a bottle of wine, to have dinner with some friends, L & M.  They met in Europe a few years ago.  M is a British tour guide who still travels the world.  He happened to be the guide for the tour L was on with her students.  Thankfully for us, they fell in love, got married and made their home base here so we can enjoy his accent, sense of humor and the amazing food they prepare together for us! 

We started our meal with a tomato, mozarella and avacado salad drizzled with something out of this world.  I’m sure it was something simple like olive oil and lemon juice and basil, but it’s always way better when someone else makes it!   Why is that?!!  Next up, they served us beef burgundy with some awesome potatoes that had a bit of a mustard flavor.  Good stuff, and of course, they served it with a great bottle of wine that made it even better.  For dessert they whipped fresh cream, made the best coffee ever and we enjoyed a lemon curd patisserie for dessert.  Thanks guys for one of the best meals ever and of course the company rocked as well. 

What a perfect start to the New Year, first Yoga, then Family, Food and Friends.

  1. Looks like a great NYD, nice venue too. One of my resolutions is to squeeze more yoga in. I bust a few moves here and there and do the cd’s that you intro’d me to when I can, but it’s not the same. Miss your style, sister. Happy New Year!
