What are we eating?
Like many central Mexican states, Michoacán is renowned for its agricultural cornucopia. At this market in Quiroga, we sat down for lunch at Carmelo's Carnitas where we got to sample an enormous hunk of barbequed pork while we decided what to order. Eager for more, a woman led us to a covered picnic table as the staff wandered by with avocados, fresh corn tortillas, cervezas, and a kilo of pork. Total cost was about $20 US between the four of us. We departed with full and happy bellies, as did a few neighborhood dogs.

Moksha Yoga Center
Chicago's Moksha Yoga Center is one of the most established yoga studios in the US. With three location, more than 40 teachers, and a busy calendar of events that provides workshops led by master teachers from all over the world, Moksha offers its community a comprehensive environment in which to explore a broad variety of yoga theory and practice.

It can be very challenging, particularly for a new teacher, to establish themselves and develop a loyal following of students. To retain its teachers and promote their classes, Moksha chose to feature a teacher each month and offers students new to that teacher a free, first class.

Heartbeest proposed that Moksha produce a video for each featured teacher to let prospective students really have an intimate experience of that individual. Moksha and Heartbeest settled on a documentary-style approach. Each film is different, following no set formula, yet delivering a unique glimpse into the featured teacher's yoga practice and their lives. Here are all of the Moksha Yoga Teacher features in their entirety for your viewing enjoyment.
