Caribbean Flamingos in Puerto Rico

It is the only flamingo that naturally inhabits North America.  There are two areas where they are seen.  One is at the salt flats in Cabo Rojo.   As the salt water evaporates, it turns purple and flamingos eat the shrimp left in pools.
The other area in north near Hatillo.  The specific area isn't spoken about so the birds are left undisturbed.

Camuy Caves

If you get a chance, visit the caves in Camuy. I did a tour where we swam for 20 minutes, sloshed through muds and and saw structures like these.

Yoga Retreat Rincon Puerto Rico Feb 9-14

"Align, Flow, & Restore" Feb 9-14, 2016

Happy post-Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you're all recovering from the beautiful gluttony this holiday incurs and are able to enjoy a long weekend off! Normally I would not send out more than one newsletter per season, but due to the date change of my Puerto Rico Yoga Retreat with Jenny Campbell I wanted to let you all know as soon as possible. We have changed the dates to February 9-14, 2016 for a variety of reasons, one of which is that flight prices are much more reasonable for those dates!

"Friends-giving" special: Bring a friend and you each get $50 off tuition! 

In order to receive this discount, one would need to register and pay in full by December 15th. 

Rincon is a beautiful beach town on the western coast of Puerto Rico.   There is a vibrant arts community and a quite substantial population of American ex-pats there.  We'll have Petra Meedt of Punto Verde Cuisine cooking all our lunches and 3 of the 5 dinners, invigorating morning yoga and meditation, and relaxing restorative practices in the early evening before dinner.   Free time will allow for relaxing on the beach, getting a massage from the lovely Gina Mikan, or any number of extra reasonably-priced adventures off-premises.  Some optional activities outside our yoga practices that I'm excited about are snorkeling, surfing lessons, a night-time tour of the bioluminescent bay, waterfalls, and the Thursday night art walk in downtown Rincon.

Take a video tour of the beautiful beach front villa where we'll be staying.

For more details, reply to this email or check out our new Facebook event page...and this time it's a public event so you can share it with your friends! =)

Winter has arrived, and with it abundant sea life.  Thousands of minnows are beneath the surface.  Larger fish, sea gulls and pelicans feed.   This is the best time to go fishing on the beach.  The birds tell you the fish are here.

Iguana in the bathroom in Rincon Puerto Rico

An iguana snuck into our bedroom while we prepared  between guests.  The cleaning lady is terrified of lizards, and this iguana is the Godzilla  of the lizards.  During the dry season, iguanas come to our swimming pool and drink as a watering hole.
This is tropical life!
