ABOUT KASIA KORD

Kasia Kord teaches Kundalini Yoga classes in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.  She has a beautiful, small home studio where sheI hold’s several classes a week.   She also runs workshops and Kundalini Happenings around, Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph and Stratford or anywhere else.

Kasia has been practicing yoga for over 20 years, and teaching for over 10.  She has trained in a wide variety of styles, with Kundalini being her passion for the past 6 years.  She has attended numerous training’s and annual gatherings in the Kundalini community throughout North America. Kasia has also completed an intensive Kundalini Yoga teacher training through the Kundalini Yoga Research Institute(KRI), with Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa and Gurshabd Singh in Rishikesh India.

Kundalini is a passion for Kasia.  It combines movement, meditation, music, chanting or singing, dance, breath and positive vibrations in one powerful package.  You really get to sweat, getting to all those spots in the body and mind that have been buried. You bring them up to the surface again, polish them off and make them new.  One of the key mantras of this practice is “bountiful, beautiful and blissful”.  Kundalini yoga helps us bring this forth through powerful movement, intense internal exploration and song.

RENT YOUR OWN ATV WITH FLYING PIRATES
One of the best ways to explore Isla Colón is by ATV/quad bike, and the people at Flying Pirates, based on their own 600-hecatre finca (farm) on the way to Playa Bluff, can oblige. They rent out more than 30 of the fat-tired vehicles for use on or off-road, including 15km of trails on private land. The beach is off-limits.

You’ll be transported to and from downtown Bocas. There’s an information and booking truck in the center. Free beers and hot showers included after your day out.

VISIT THE NATIVE COMMUNITIES AND GET TO SPONSOR A CHILD’S EDUCATION WITH GIVE AND SURF
Give and Surf directly serves a population of over five hundred Ngobe community members living in the communities of Bahia Roja, Bahia Honda, and Solarte. These impoverished, remote communities survive mainly off subsistence living without electricity, running water, clean drinking water, and bathroom facilities. The area is provided insufficient government education for grades 1st-6th and has a limited number of resources and opportunities for prosperity.

For these reasons Give & Surf aims to provide substantive, hands-on, real world assistance and programs to a hundred and thirty children ages three to sixteen. Give & Surf has constructed and developed two schools in Bahia Honda and Bahia Roja that provide the following: a daily preschool and kindergarten, summer school, surf outreach mentorship program, after school program, Adult and Elementary School english programs, music program, and community development initiatives. Give & Surf and its supporters also sponsor the continued education of thirty students through a sponsorship program that provides the necessary transportation and school supplies needs of students ages 13-18.

Island Hop for a Few Days or More

Since Bocas it’s an archipelago and there are tons of things to do around the different islands, we truly recommend that if you are staying longer to take a day or two to island hop. Did you know that the majority of the locals know how to drive boats but very few drive cars? So Cool !

Destinations include Isla Carenero (US$1), Isla Bastimentos and Isla Solarte (US$5) and Red Frog Beach (US$8). Scheduled boats leave for Almirante (20 minutes, US$6) every half-hour. Staff is trained in safe boating and sustainable-tourism practices.

DINE OUT LIKE A LOCAL
While Bocas it’s a pretty small place to be, there are so many GOOD and varied options to eat out and most of them you will find to be absolutely different and in gorgeous settings.

We recommend EL ULTIMO REFUGIO

One of the best restaurants in Bocas town, this mellow North American–run place on the edge of the sea specializes in Caribbean and seafood dishes, with fare such as red curry calamari and miso-crusted grouper on the chalkboard. Service is friendly and the tranquil location makes it a great spot for a quiet, romantic dinner.
