Continuing Friendships in Chiang Mai

(Jun 30, 2021) New faces, familiar faces, continuing friendships, building bridges, setting up boundaries, promising beginnings, dead ends, my shifting peoplescape in Chiang Mai. A continuing (monthly?) narrative of who and what matters...more »»

Movie Review: Those Who Wish Me Dead (2021)

(Jun 28, 2021) By Angelina Jolie standard, this film falls a little short of what's promised. It's not a bad film, but it's not a memorable film either. It'll keep you entertained while inside the movie house, but don't expect any lingering human out take when the movie is over.....more »»

On the Brink of Hunger, the ENABLERS Come to Light

(Jun 21, 2021) The last time I was problematic about money was the entire 2018. This year, it has hung precariously low. This June, I came down to my last few meals in the fridge. Worried? NO! It got me excited. How will my benevolent universe save the day for me the way it has unwaveringly done so in the last 9 years I had been traveling? The suspense was killing me.....more »»

Hatha Vinyasa Yoga with Katharine Day

(Jun 17, 2021) She's not a model attending a yoga class - she's the teacher! Looking lean and strong like an Ashtangi, having a commanding presence on the mat, articulated cuing with that unmistakable British accent, she can only be Kate - one of my favorite yoga teachers here in Chiang Mai.....more »»

Pranayama Basics II

(Jun 16, 2021) This class is a continuation of last week's Pranayama Basics class. We simply pick-up where we took off. The intention is to do as few breaths as possible within the given 3 minutes on a particular pranayama, without straining. Asana is interspersed with pranayama to modulate the flow of prana. The class ends with meditation....more »»

36-Hour Love Life

(Jun 11, 2021) It was a case of 2 friends who spent too much time with each other, liked each other a little more than they should, and ended up exploring possibilities. All it took was a few red flags in the first 36 hours to realize it wasn't viable. Like 2 intelligent adults, we both decided to cut our loses while we were still ahead of the game.....more »»

Biohackers Meetup in Chiang Mai fitness

Biohackers Meetup in Chiang Mai

(Jan 25, 2003) I've always been a biohacker before I even knew the word. I think biohacking is a state of thinking. You have this uncanny ability to connect the dots inside your head from diverse disciplines, with an intuitive hunch on the outcome. In more ways than one, the only way to find out if it works is to try it on your body - you become the guinea pig. When Jason organized a biohacker meetup, I just had to show up.....more »»

Learning How to Breathe yoga

Learning How to Breathe

(Jun 2, 2021) This was the first of a series of progressive pranayama yoga classes I taught at the park as a free public offering of Yoga in the Park - Chiang Mai. We're not even touching pranayama which is the yogic regulated breathing method. This class is as basic as learning how to properly breathe. Why? Because few people know how to breathe right.....more »»
