Forget Hot Yoga … Let’s Skate!

Almost two years of teaching vinyasa yoga at a local ridiculously hot yoga studio (vinyasa is NOT their specialty) has pretty much sucked the desire to teach right out of me. So I am gladly taking a break from teaching yoga all together. Aside from working on me and my own practice (Ashtanga), it looks like 2015 is the year I reinvent myself. I did not consciously set out to do so. It just seems to be going that way….

Starting with this Web site: No need for a calendar of when and where I am teaching, I’m not. If I do get talked into it, well that will just be a surprise here and there. I might be convinced to sub, suppose.

As I am not teaching yoga at the moment and I own this domain, I might as well use it. The site will continue to be about Pablo’s yoga adventures, but it will also feature some of my other passions, namely riding fixies (the urban hipster’s ride of choice) and longboards (the urban hispster’s other ride of choice). I am too unhip to be  a hipster, but I do like a beautiful smooth riding, big wheeled longboard and a sleek fixed-gear ride.

Today was downright balmy compared to recent weather (50 degrees F, windy) and I went for a long fixie ride and a short longboard ride. I am OK with that. If  I had managed to do some yoga, I would have hit all three. It is Saturday, the ashtanga day off and I am OK with that.
