Some of you know I am playing in a newly formed group a Big Band named Big Band Rafael Terriquez. Rafael (Pili to us) directs our group, plays trombone, recruits new players, and also does the marketing and promotions. Pili is well know in the musical community of Mexico having played in many great bands. We had a quickly organized concert just a few weeks after we starting rehearsals but this is really our premier concert. As part of the city of Chapala's push to increase tourism and awareness we will be part of the week long festival leading up to Carnival.

Pili has gathered a fine group of musician for this band so come out and have fun and enjoy some tradition tunes you all know and love and a few ones you might not. We have a great sax section, fabulous trombones and trumpets sections, piano and percussion section that is top notch and two fine singers. Swing on down and check us out.

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
