Connection Rio + Carnaval + Paraty + Source Temple, Etc

Part I: Pineapple House in Canggu

Today I tried a (slightly) heated vinyasa class at Yoga at Cindy’s. I was still extremely terrible and flexible. And…strangely…weak. I am not used to holding myself in the positions specified, so ish was hard. As I was trembling and awkward, the teacher said “Find your joy!”


I actually bought my first yoga mat (off Amazon) so I can stop renting mats. I bought a squishy one to cushion my knees. I now realize it makes for much more difficult balancing. ...
