Yoga and Baseball Battle

Home/Giving, Living, Seeing/Yoga and Baseball Battle


A lot has happened since our last post.  Before we get serious and start talking about our most recent undertaking: new school in Bahia Roja lets lighten the mood with a little Saturday fun.  A few weeks back we scooped up our 4-6th graders for a day of yoga, beach, and baseball.  The morning started off like many do in Panama; rain, thunder, and a bleak outlook on the day we had planned for the kids.  As always we push through rain or shine in Bocas and the rain gods gave way to sunny skies and new experiences.  The 4th-6th graders are in the midst of learning English and our most recent topic is sports so this day was ideally focused on stretching, batting, and sweating.  After a great session with yoga instructor Amy from Palmar we grubbed on some food in the great room of Palmar, relaxed on the beach, and took off for Bahia Roja.  Bahia Roja is located within a fifteen minute walk of the beach and is the location of our most recent construction projects: a new dining hall, bathroom/septic tank, and now a NEW SCHOOL.  That’s right people, a new school.  It was great to bring both the communities together especially since we have started to work closely with Bahia Roja.  Our first construction projects have now given way to English classes for the adults two days a week and regular activities for the children of this quaint village tucked beneath the mangroves of Bastimentos.

The baseball game was a pitchers duel.  Fidencio, the pitcher for Bahia Honda, came out throwing heat, but at the end of the day the undermanned, more determined team of Bahia Roja won it all at a score of 3-1.  As these two communities are located closely to one another we have decided to join forces in the upcoming weeks and play against nearby communities.  Doubling the roster and fine tuning the skills is what we have planned.  At the end of the game the heartbroken Bahia Honda warriors remained calm as all yogis do.  Enjoy the pics and come down here to swing baseball bats, stretch out your hammy’s, and enjoy the hit or miss weather of Bocas.
