Tennis Article by Jill Flyer...I wrote the article in English (because my Spanish is not sophisticated enough to write an article) and then it was translated into Spanish.  But, then meanings were skewed and so, because I do know enough Spanish to read quite well, we went through several edits to get everything correct.  Many people here in Ajijic were mentioned in the article, so I hope everyone who reads Spanish can enjoy this.  The theme, of course, is tennis in the Ajijic/Lake Chapala area.

Lake Chapala Society Ajijic 

Open Circle begins each Sunday morning at 10:00 for a social time including coffee, tea and sandwich bites. The  presentation begins  10:30.

August 2
Stories Your Mother Never Told You
Presented by Howard Edmond

 
Howard will tell tales from the Grimm Brothers, a modern tale by Richard Kennedy, and an old English tale about death. He will play a Native American flute and tell Lakota and Huichol stories. Come, awaken the child within; together we will dance through words and worlds of wonder!
 
Howard was thrown out the side door of their ’52 Chevy after his father got sick of hearing him sing “You Ain’t Nothin’ but a Hound Dog” for six hours. When Howard was 12, short big eyed green men came through the wall and took him on a space excursion. Following high school he served 4 years on a Navy Nuke submarine.  He then worked as Heating Mechanic, Landscaper, and Sheet Metal Estimator. At 34 he rediscovered his passion for storytelling and has been telling them at schools, libraries, business dinners and churches ever since. He had five specials run on PBS radio and has performed on the local ABC affiliate.
  
 
Due to an increasing number of objections to the presence of dogs at Open Circle, we are asking you to consider the perspective of those distracted by dogs and no longer bring them to Open Circle. Of course, Service Dogs are always welcome.

Personal Core Training

by

Jaime Barbiery

My session concentrates on your core abdominal muscles .I will show you simple, yet gentle and effective exercises for you that strengthen your balance abilities, focusing on being centered and straightened back posture.

Your core abdominals are the center of your mobility and flexibility. Core abdominal muscle groups are used routinely in every day activities - driving, walking, lifting, swiveling, and even dancing!

Having strong core abdominal muscles will let you be more active, healthier, and able to accomplish more in your overall exercise routine and in you’re daily life.

The research I have done indicates that as we age, the core muscles, the stomach, obliques and lower back, are going to support our upper body.  My easy yet effective sessions will strengthen these important core abdominal muscles. If using the services of a nutritionist, these exercises will greatly affect your waist.

Using lightweights, Pilates balls, non-strenuous exercises and other equipment, we will work as a team to ensure you reach your goals.

This Is Mexico

This is Mexico is a collection of essays on the often magical, mysterious and sometimes heartrending workings of everyday life in Mexico from the perspective of an American ex-patriate.  Merchasin's stories provide an informed look at Mexican culture and history exploring everything from healthcare to religious rituals, from the educational role of the telenovela to the cultural subtleties of the Spanish language.  

"This is a delightful book.  It made me ponder, smile, laugh out loud.  Merchasin's droll take on the unfamiliar and unlikely is a tonic, and she loves Mexico, and its people, as I do."  Alice Walker
