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.

School for Special Children Logo Design Competition

New Mission!  New Board!  New Logo!  Over the last few years, the mission of the School for the Deaf in Jocotopec has broadened. Assisting the School is a particular challenge since the student population now is much more diverse. Only 20% of the students are hearing impaired.  The remainder of the students struggle with a range of mental and physical disabilities.  For example, the School has currently enrolled children with Down's syndrome, Autistic spectrum syndromes, seizure disorders and paraplegia.  And now a blind student attends.  Thus, the new Board wants to develop a new logo that better reflects their mission for the newly named School for Special Children (Escuela para Niños Especiales.)

Local artists are encouraged to submit their design for a new logo for the School by August 30.

Preliminary judging will be done by the Board to narrow the choice to six logo submissions. The six final artists will be notified to arrange display at the Ajijic Cultural Center.  Final judging of these six logo entries will be open to the public at the Center from September 15-20.  The winning entry will be announced at an event at the Center on September 26 when the artist of the winning logo will receive a prize of $1,000 pesos.

For information on how to submit your logo design, contact Logo Competition Coordinator, Karen at

Personal Core Training


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.
