survivor yoga

the winner of the "survivor - panama exile island" series has just been revealed. aras baskauskas, santa monica resident and westside yoga teacher, has just found himself a million dollars richer (at least until he pays the taxes due on his winnings).

and as i had expected, the hits to my blogsite based on searches for "aras baskauskas" increased tremendously in the last week. so for all of you star-struck yoga practitioners who want to take a class with this new celebrity, here's his schedule:

Shakti's Elements, 717 Broadway, Santa Monica
time: Tues & Thur 10:30am
price: All classes are on a donation basis, $12 suggested per class
parking: metered parking available around the studio (santa monica lives off parking ticket fines, so make sure you feed your meter as needed)

Power Yoga East, 522 Santa Monica Blvd, Santa Monica (above the Radio Shack store)
time: Sat 1:00pm
price: All classes are on a donation basis, $11 suggested per class
parking: besides nearby metered parking on the street and at the library, the closest public parking structures are north and south of santa monica blvd on 4th street (first 2 hours free)

Maha Yoga, 13050 San Vicente Blvd, Los Angeles (in Brentwood, above the Starbucks store)
time: Mon & Wed & Fri 12:45pm, Sun 4pm
price: Aras's classes are currently at an intro price of $10 per class
parking: besides limited free and metered street parking, validated parking is available underneath the building. DO NOT PARK IN THE BRENTWOOD COUNTRY MART LOT; THEY WILL TOW!

if you watched the final episode, you know that he's currently out of town and won't be back until after he picks up his check on the CBS early show tomorrow. so if you were planning to see him at his maha class this monday, he won't be there, although i'm sure his sub will be more than happy to teach you anyway :)
