Do You Want The Secret To Ideal Health? - Are you having sleepless nights, fatigue, sluggish digestion, depression, emotional issues, or any physical challenges that will not clear up? Ayurveda, the ancient mind body healing system from India can help.
Hi everyone, I just got back from my yearly trip to India and will be offering Ayurvedic Consultations, Numerology Readings, Intuitive Energy Healing and private Yoga classes until the end of May. Ayurveda is the science of life and longevity. It utilizes laws of nature and natural resources to restore health and optimize wellness throughout life. Its principles are easily applied to our current culture and busy lives. Ayurveda is a holistic health care for repairing the body and teaching it to thrive, thus living a life of greater comfort, ease and bliss.
Through a number of assessment techniques including taking the pulse, I can look into the physiology to determine root cause of a health challenge and help to bring that towards your natural state of balance. Ayurveda is multi-dimensional and uses yoga, meditation, astrology, aromatherapy, sound, herbs, spices and a possible adjustment to lifestyle, sleep and diet routine. Take action to create your ideal health and give me a call or send me an email today! - Valma Brenton, vbrenton [- at -] island.net, http://www.bajayoga-ayurveda.com, 612 131 6387, Baja California Sur

Warning To All Women In Todos Santos - At 8:00 in the morning today (Saturday), I was walking on the beach just north of La Pastora. I was in an area without homes and a man appeared suddenly up over the dunes. He walked directly towards me and I felt something was not right in his walk. As he got closer I saw that he wore a mask which covered his entire face and also had a machette in his hand. I was not in screaming distance from anyone. He was stalking a single woman on an isolated beach. All of this happened so fast. From beauty to terror in 30 seconds. I put up my hand in a STOP position and in my most aggresive and angry NY City voice I told him in Spanish to not come any closer to me and that my dog would attack him. Of course, I knew my dog couldn't cuz she is 13 years old with no teeth.
He continued towards me with me yelling back at him to STOP and he said "I want to have sex with you and if you dont let me I will kill you". At this point I was a bit ahead and my back towards him and I continued to yell "Don't get any closer to me or my dog will kill you". I escaped I believe because of the force of my voice and hands. I stunned him. I called my friends when I got home and my neighbors. They called the police and everyone was looking for this man in less than 10 minutes. The police were excellent. My friends and neighbors are angels to me. Unfortunately, this masked man was not caught. Please all women, be aware. Enjoy the beauty here but remember rapists are predators and unfortunately exist here too. - Jennifer Power

Chatarra – Helping To Save The Sea Of Cortez On A Plastic Bottle Life Raft - The Baja Good Life Club (BGL Club), a Baja retirement and travel club, want to raise awareness about plastic waste in the Gulf of California, more commonly known as the Sea of Cortez. The club is inspired to build Chatarra, a 20-foot raft made from reclaimed plastic bottles and other recycled materials to sail fromBaja California to La Paz, Baja California Sur in mid-June.
The Chatarra idea was originally thought of by John and Rachel Pack, nearly three years ago during the 'The Baja Love Ride' , a fundraising cycling challenge from Rosarito to San Felipe to raise funds for less fortunate Baja Children. Then this past summer, it was again discussed in length during the Baja Walk, a 850-mile walk from San Felipe to Cabo San Lucas to raise awareness for Baja children and animals.
Led by John and Rachel Pack, founders of the BGL Club, adventurers, and environmentalists, the Chatarra is set to sail from San Felipe to La Paz. Chatarra's mission is to draw attention to the large amounts of plastic debris in the Sea of Cortez and to help inform communities on the coast how to reduce plastic waste, and how recycled materials can be a resource for the future.
John and Rachel Pack, and their BGL Club team members will navigate more than 600 nautical miles from the Bay of San Felipe to the beautiful Bay of La Paz, where the boat will be dismantled and recycled.
According to the Center for Biological Diversity, plastic pollution harms an estimated 100,000 sea turtles and marine mammals and 1,000,000 sea creatures each year. As plastic debris floats in the seawater, it absorbs dangerous pollutants like PCBs, DDT and PAH. These chemicals are highly toxic and have a wide range of chronic effects, including endocrine disruption and cancer-causing mutations. The concentration of PCBs in plastics floating in the ocean has been documented as 100,000 to 1 million times that of surrounding waters. When animals eat these plastic pieces, the toxins are absorbed into their body and passed up the food chain and ultimately to our dinner plates. - Baja Goodlife Club, San Felipe, admin [- at -] bglclub.com, www.bglclub.com/challenges/baja-chatarra
