Eat Pray Love in just one day

Are you tired of seeing this book cover? I’m not…yet. If you want my opinion, we are going to hear about this book for a very long time, heck there’s now holiday packages themed after this story.

I thought the movie was good (and the book even better). A well rounded chic flick with Gilbert’s wittiness thrown in. There are two scenes I particularly like: the opening scene to her India adventure. I loved the contrast between Italy and India and the music choice was perfect. This scene got my heart racing to head to India. The song was BOYZ by M.I.A. Have a listen, it will bring it all back.

The second scene, is her first experience in the meditation room at the ashram. We’ve all been there…time seems to stand still and the mind rambles on. Painful in more ways then one.

If you’d like to read a males take of the movie and the buzz it brought among he’s co-workers, check out Kyle Wells review on his Cinefile Blog.

Finally getting to the reason for this post. (See, it’s so easy to go on and on about this book.) Desiree Daniel a writer from Vancouver  documents her Eat Pray Love experience over the course of one day in this blog post on Granville Online.

This past weekend I had the opportunity to be a workshop leader at Every WOMAN Powell River. I hope everyone enjoyed the sample of yoga. My workshop was first thing in the morning, a perfect way to start the day.

The whole day was filled with inspiring workshops. I took in pilates, nai, Qigong, African drumming, belly dancing, meditation and made time to relaxed in the tea lounge. The lunch and snacks were tasty and seemed to never run out.

Thank you, Kerri and Lynn, for organizing which a memorable, action packed day. I don’t think I’ve stopped shimming my shoulders yet, thanks for the moves Mara. 🙂

For those that couldn’t make it, here’s the link to a slideshow (click here), created by a local photographer. I’m in the drumming segment, to the right of the lady in pink, my good friend Erin.
