Since October 2007 I have been working with a group of Mexican students in the hopes of providing more Spanish speaking yoga teachers for Tijuana. Tijuana has a population similar to that of San Diego, with a large middle income sector, and very few yoga classes available (mostly in health clubs). On Sunday mornings through April of 2008 we are offering free classes to the public as an opportunity for the Teacher Trainees to get teaching experience in preparation for certification. Thus far the classes have been very popular, close to maximum capacity!
I am thrilled to have this chance to work south of the border and very excited by the response. Thanks to David Alonzo for the use of his beautiful facility at the Tijuana Aikikai, Aikido studio, in Colonia Cacho ( a Tijuana neighborhood). I invite any interested students to participate in these classes. American students, be aware of the current passport requirements, and plan time for the border crossing when returning to San Diego.
