1) The Club recommends: YOGA helps your game
[published on September 11, 2009]
When incorporating aspects of this ancient mind, body, and spiritual philosophy to their normal routine, athletes of all levels discover enhanced performance and mental focus, have fewer injuries, hastened recovery time, and stronger inner motivation.
Yoga stretches increase stamina and improves balance. Cross training with Yoga spices up an otherwise dull regimen. But that is not all; when we are out of balance we may become injured during the workout. Yoga’s breathing techniques helps to consider the mental aspects of exercising, learning to concentrate, to really be present and to feel all parts of your body which is vital to athletic achievement.
At The Club of El Rincon, we have brought together some great asanas (also known as Yoga Positions), which are body positions intended primarily to restore and maintain a practitioner’s well-being, improve the body’s flexibility, vitality and promote the ability to remain in seated meditation for extended periods. By choosing to carefully combine yoga stretches with your favorite sports, you will receive a more productive and safe workout.

5) Destination weddings: Pedregal, Cabo San Lucas
[published on January 14, 2011]
We came across these wonderful photographs by Scott Andrew of a wedding in one of the worldwide best wedding destinations: Cabo San Lucas. And where else to have a wedding than at the beach, especially if it is secluded and surrounded by magnificent Pedregal mountain? See the images and the story below (text by Scott Andrew):
There is something awesome about going to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with 130 of your closest friends and family. Oh and having one of the most gorgeous, beach, destination weddings while you’re there is a superb idea too. That is exactly what Nikki and Bobby did a little while back in gorgeous Baja California, Mexico.
Special thanks to the lovely Leslie Bost of The One Happenings, Cabo’s finest wedding and event planner, Capella Pedregal hotel and resort for hosting the rehearsal dinner, Villa Bellissima in Pedregal for hosting the reception and the many others who helped make this wedding special.
