R.I.P. Jason Winn

Saturday was spent at a lovely memorial for the man who started the Laguna Beach Bikram Yoga Studio. He was 44 years old when he passed a few weeks ago.

How else do you think we would choose to remember him? Why a 90 minute hot yoga class, of course. The room must have been at least 110 degrees, but with the added heat of the 50+ bodies, it felt more like summer in the rain forest. Afterwards, we all walked across the street and swam in the refreshing ocean, as that was Jason's favorite routine. Marna, the owner of the studio provided watermelon and we all sat around remembering Jason.

He was a dear, sweet, lovable man who loved life and touched all those who had the pleasure of meeting him. The Laguna Beach studio would not be there if not for Jason.

Life is a precious gift. Go out and run, swim, surf, skydive, mountain climb, breathe fresh air and do a few standing forward bends while you're at it. Then tell someone you love them today. You never know when it may be your last.
