We are happy to announce that we now offer Thai massage by appointment with Jorge Garduno.For those of you who have never heard of Thai massage, a brief explanation follows: Thai massage is performed on a fully clothed client who is manipulated into various postures by the body worker. It sometimes is called the yoga massage..
We also offer a brief introduction to Tabata fitness, which is an absolutely marvelous cardio set of exercises; combined with yoga–you’ve got it all!
This is a workshop for students who have had more than one year of yoga practice. The concentration will be on the back and spine; we begin at 10 a.m. with some fresh juice, and then Anabel will lead a three hour class. Then a lunch of poached salmon, tabouli, and fresh fruit (vegetarian option available) will be served, and there will be time to swim, read, have a massage (500 pesos for an hour), or just relax. Then a two hour restorative with Anabel, and a light meal of soup and cornbread. The cost for this event is 800 pesos; for more information, call Shanti at 415 100 8396, or Anabel at 415 152 8129.

When we last went to India, we ordered some wonderful shikar tents. These are the tents used by rajahs went they went out to hunt. Each tent has a bedroom and a separate room for a full bath, and each is hand block-printed on the interior. These tents are used in the Himalayas, and also on the beach and desert. If you are interested in perhaps purchasing one, please let us know.
