Happy October Yogis! I am so excited to be back in Ohio after a few weeks filled with Top Thrill Yoga and the most awesOMe adventure in Greece. I am full of inspiration, stories, and beautiful photos from the I Am Love Yoga retreat in Santorini, so stay tuned over the next few weeks for some special blog posts I’ll be sharing.

As much as I hate to see summer and beach yoga go, I’m ready for Fall and have two things I’m really thrilled to announce and honored to be a part of….

First, if you like to dance, if you want to get out of the cold winter weather in January, and if you would like to do beach yoga with me somewhere tropical in January, then keep reading! I will be joining Zumba Goddess Jeananne Siegferth for her hugely popular 8th Annual Funtastic Vacation in Punta Cana DR this coming January 22-28, 2016. Jeananne brings the zumba dance party like no other goddess can, and I’ll be bringing two daily beach yoga sessions five days that week!

The vacation is held at the Iberostar Resort in Punta Cana and is all inclusive – which means the airfare, transfers, hotel, meals, drinks, zumba and nightly entertainment is all included! There are only 3 spaces left and they are for the 6 night/7 day dates: Jan 22 – Jan 28 or 9 night/10 day travel dates: Jan. 22- Jan. 31, 2016. If you would like more information contact Ann Mills Travel at (330) 927-2511 or via email at amillstravel @earthlink.net.

If I had to pick one other form of exercise that I love besides yoga, it would definitely be Zumba! Come join Jeananne and me this January for a week of beach yoga and dance party bliss in the Caribbean!

Second, I’m really excited to announce that this redhead is heading to the RED ROCKS of Sedona, Arizona this coming March 10-13, 2016 as a presenter at the Sedona Yoga Festival!

Stay tuned for more details on the schedule and the dates/times of my sessions. I’m also working on a 3 to 4 day retreat leading into the Festival, and will be posting more information here on the Daily Downward Dog very soon.

In the meantime, there is a special early bird discount being offered now through October 10, so if you act fast you can pick up the all access pass for $327!

I can’t wait to share more about Santorini and also lots of great stories from the summer months when I was so busy sharing yoga on the beach that I didn’t get to write much, so stay tuned for more yoga love and inspiration to come. Until then keep breathing, keep believing, and remember you have the power to manifest your dreams!

Finally, I’ve updated my Yoga Class Schedule page with all of my classes at Yoga Bliss Akron this Fall/Winter and I’ll be posting my Saturday Vermilion Yoga Schedule very soon – but plan on joining me in Vermilion on Saturday, October 10, either on the beach if weather permits or we’ll take it inside if not (location to be announced).

Oh, and one more thing, tomorrow don’t forget to SMILE on World Smile Day (October 2, 2015) – my favorite holiday!
