The popular practice of yoga is trickling down to youngsters. Samantha "Sam" Breit Schroeder, a Laguna Beach resident, has taken her years of yoga practice and started Mindful Octopus, a storytelling, yoga and art class for children. The hour-long sessions, which take place at the AR4T gallery in town and the Resort at Pelican Hill, are themed with a specific story each week. There are two classes, one for children ages 3 to 5 and a second for children 6 to 10. "We introduce kids to folks, fables and legends from different cultures, and these stories carry beautiful messages ... and the art of storytelling is a lost art," Schroeder said.

It seems that in Laguna, our police have very little to do. On March 26 we had our yoga class stopped by the police and were threatened with a warning that we were not entitled to use the paved area in the park. It seems that the city garbage truck called the police on us after they had to wait four minutes for us to finish a sequence and move our mats so the truck could get through. The driver never asked us to move and never honked his horn. We finally just asked if he wanted to come through, and we let him through.

Early Easter morning at Alta Laguna Park, as the sun rose in the east, the plaintive sounds of Native American music floated among a group of about 20 people. Pastor B.J. Beu of the Neighborhood Congregational Church played a flute while a drum kept the beat. The ceremony included a "centering prayer," where the people faced the four directions with the invitation to "listen to the earth. " While it also had more traditional references to the meaning of Easter, the ceremony clearly was not your typical church service.

For the uninitiated, yoga is intimidating. There's hot yoga, cold yoga and for me, lukewarm yoga. Seemingly overnight, yoga has grown into a subculture, a club, a movement. With its many names and rules, it is complicated and inscrutable. You are not alone if you believe it is impossible exercise, unattainable spiritualism, fleeting serenity and holy hell punishment. There is a reason it is a four-letter word. Nonetheless, I was intrigued and tentatively made inquiries. My only challenge was finding a yoga studio with a sense of humor.
