Tacos, Boudin, Bayous & Yoga | Promoting Istmo in the Deep South.

Tacos, Boudin, Bayous and Yoga

I was fortunate enough to take a 10 day whirlwind trip from Texas to Florida to promote Istmo in the deep south. I flew into Houston and spent a couple of days in my hometown of Galveston, Texas before setting off for Daytona Beach, Florida to visit my brother who was participating in the National Lifeguarding Competition. On the way I wanted to hit up as many yoga and wellness centers as I could to pass on some promotional information about Istmo. Of course the delicious Tex Mex, Cajun, and southern cuisine kept me full and happy during the long drive.

I would like to thank all of the wonderful people I met along the way who, in true southern hospitality invited me into their studios and talked about the yoga community in their area. Below is a list of some of the studios/centers I visited and some pictures of their owners.

If you are ever in the area be sure and drop by and take a class.
