    HATHA YOGA
    Tuesday & Thursday: 4:00 pm
    Instructor: Joy Alexander
    "Hatha" is the term for the physical practice of yoga, as well as a style of yoga itself.  The main difference between a Hatha style class and a Vinyasa (Flow) style class is that Hatha tends to move at a slightly slower pace, not 'flowing' the movements together as one would in Vinyasa.  
    This class is based on physical postures ("asanas"), deep breathing, mindfulness and listening to the body.  The goal is to align, strengthen and promote flexibility in body, with an aim of leaving your practice feeling relaxed and balanced.  Traditional asanas are held in accurate alignment, as we make our way through standing, seated, and reclined postures, including twists, backbends, forward folds, and hip openers, etc. 
    This class is good for beginners, as well as more advanced practitioners.
    PRICE: Residents: $8.00 / Visitors: $10.00; mats and props provided.
    All classes are 60 minutes.
    LOCATION: A variety of yoga classes are held throughout the week in The Haven, Boquete's premiere spa & resort, located in Bajo Boquete.  The HAVEN SPA is located in Bajo Boquete. When entering town, look for the "Haven Spa" signs... the Haven is located just off the main road, tucked away in a blissful, natural setting. The Yoga Studio at has wooden floors, full length windows, and garden views.

      By Moderator_02,
         We were not able to participate in this event due to absence from the area, but we understand from friends who supported this event that it was a HUGE success. Here are some of Clare Taylor's photos:
       









































    • Community Christmas Party Hosted by Amigos de Boquete Comunidad
      By Moderator_02,
         Marcelyn and I attended this fabulous Christmas Party at La Posada Restaurant this afternoon. Besides the usual Christmas season festivities, one purpose for this party was to collect Christmas gifts for the local children. There was no entrance fee, but attendees were asked to bring wrapped Christmas gifts for distribution by the local churches. Our estimate is that about 50 people were in attendance, and all enjoyed the fantastic music of a seven member mariachi band. What a great performance on their part; they were very good at getting the attendees involved by singing and dancing with them. La Posada had extra waitstaff to take care of drink and food orders. The party was in a large room at the rear of La Posada -- could not have been a better venue for this kind of gathering.
      The party was planned and executed by a recently formed group of expats under the name of Amigos de Boquete Comunidad (ABC). Joe Hart and his wife, Linda, along with numerous volunteers put together this festive gathering. Our hats off to Joe, Linda, and all of their elves.
      Here are a few pictures from this event:

    • ARF Thanksgiving Meal
      By Bud,
         Marcelyn and I were participants in ARF's Thanksgiving Day event at the Animales Building. There was a LOT of VERY GOOD food, great conversations, visits with friends, etc. We estimate there were about 70 guests and maybe 15 worker-bees taking care of setting up, tending to the guests, etc. The background music was nice, and not so loud as to intrude into the conversations. The pecan pie was simply outstanding. Kudos to that chef! But I also do not want to take away from any of the other food items. I sampled all the food choices, and there was nothing to apologize for on that front.
      An unexpected plus for us was that we finally got to meet Beth Abrahams (it is kind of a long story, don't ask).

      We also got to catch up with all of the latest travels and happenings of our friends who were at our table. Met a few new people, etc.
      There simply was nothing that we could fault (not our goal anyway). This is the way things should be done, and ARF did it with all of their wonderful volunteers. If someone found fault with something yesterday, then I would chalk them off as being a token curmudgeon.  Thank you ARF! GREAT JOB!!!!

      Thank you to all who helped make yesterday's Thanksgiving Day celebration such a huge success, and special thanks to N&N:

      I will close with: we all have a lot to be thankful for.
       
    • One Night in India
      By JudyS,
         I think $55 for one person is a lot of money to spend on a dinner in Boquete.  I've never spent that much for an Indian dinner anywhere.
