Yoga Meets Standup Paddleboarding in Savannah

This month Savannah Power Yoga owner Kate Taylor started offering Standup Paddleboard Yoga Classes, Sunday afternoons on Lake Mayer. She takes a group of 8 to the lake, where they rent paddle boards provided by Paddle Savannah, and after a quick lesson and a few warmup yoga poses, they’re out on the water. They begin getting used to the board by paddling on their knees, and slowly the adventurous few begin to stand up. Within five minutes everyone is up and paddling around like a pro. Taylor lets the group take a small lap around Lake Mayer before she circles them up to take their first downward dog on the water. With great patience, she not only calls out yoga poses, but gives detailed instructions on how to execute them without ending up in the water. Taylor encourages her students to push themselves to their edge. To some their personal edge goes beyond the edge of their board, and they’re treated to a refreshing dip in the lake. The class stays out on the water for around 90 minutes, long enough for a warm up, some invigorating poses, and a relaxing cool down while tethered to the dock.

Explosive Art

Artist Matt Stromberg is literally creating a stir in the art world by using everything from explosives and rocket fuel to submachine guns in his volatile, nonobjective sculpture. He’s careful to stress, however, that his unique art form is not really about explosives but kinetic energy—more specifically, the release of it. The result is somewhat unpredictable. What is predictable, after he conducts trench warfare across his many canvasses, is his ability to produce interesting and spontaneous mark making—marks created through applied texture that create volume.

Savannah Derby Devils Are Rocking The South

The Savannah Derby Devils are gearing up for an action packed bout against the Richland County Regulators this Saturday, August 27th at the Savannah Civic Center. The Savannah Derby Devils formed in 2006 during a nationwide resurgence of roller derby and have continued to grow in numbers, skill and in its understanding of this developing sport. They play by the Women’s Flat-Track Derby Association rules, and are a member of the U.S. Association of Roller Sports. The game is played with 14 players from each team on the track in a pack formation. One player from each team hangs back as the pack begins to skate, these players are called the jammers. When the pack is 20 feet across the starting line, the jammers begin skating. A jammer’s goal is to skate through the pack, and lap the pack as many times as she can, which is how points are earned.

Hurricane Preparation Beyond the Bottled Water

Hurricane season is upon us once again, and this one came out swinging. With Irene charging toward the East Coast, talk of hurricane preparedness is everywhere. According to the latest models, the Savannah Area is out of Irene’s projected path, and all we should see is some heavy rainfall throughout the weekend. When faced with the possibility of a hurricane, we hear the same sage advice from our local news networks. Filling up our vehicles with gas, buying an ample supply of bottled water and non-perishable foods, and locating and protecting important family documents are all great ideas, and are imperative to riding out the storm. After the basic survival precautions are taken, there are several other ways to protect yourself during the storm, whether or not you choose to evacuate.

This Week’s Featured Story: Stayin’ Alive

Tony Allen, Savannah native and front man for the punk rock band Dead Stays Alive, comes with all the accoutrements of a rock star: blue hair, studded and outrageous jewelry, tats, an entourage, and a killer voice that shakes whatever space, no matter the size, in which he wields a microphone. However, Google his name and more photos of Lindsay Lohan pop up than mention of his music, which, despite not being Jack Johnson catchy, has a decent fan base and, more importantly, is constantly evolving and improving.

Idol Fever Spreads Through Savannah

Savannah has Idol fever, and I’m no exception! Yesterday I spent an exciting afternoon at the The Hyatt on River Street witnessing firsthand the awe-inspiring phenomenon that is American Idol. Host Ryan Seacrest and judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler were close enough for me to touch while they praised Savannah and the crop of talent who came before them during the day’s auditions. According to Tyler, eight of 18 contestants earned a golden ticket to Hollywood, and Jackson declared that Savannah “arrived today with amazing talent.” Despite my reluctance to belt out “Janie’s Got a Gun” for the panel of superstars, I was bubbling with enthusiasm as I listened to them rave about the charm, hospitality, and fabulous food of our beautiful city. Look for more details to come in South’s upcoming film issue and on South TV.
