From Bent to me….

Just a brief note to say HELLO…

I started off as BentPeople and perhaps it was my name that lured you to my site. With a whiff of change in the air, I’ve made the grown up decision to take ownership of who I am and change the name of my site to (me) Adriana Cortazzo. My site has two purposes: one is to keep new and current students informed of my teaching schedule and secondly, to share some fun, creative and liberating rants with a pinch or a dollop of yoga sacredness. I am inspired by the wisdom and words of the stunning Kim Rosen when she says “dare to allow the rhythm of your heart beat and your breath into the words you use…” I do wear my heart on my sleeves and hopefully into the very veins of my being. Although you are already part of my online tribe I reopen my door to you and greet you whole heartedly to this place I call me. Bless you!

    Beautiful Adriana,

    So lovely to receive this post … and i love that you wear your heart on your sleeve … me too!

    Adriana I want to apologise profusely for not following up on your ideas about the Mind and body festival and possibilities for AAWI … I am so sorry.

    An Affair with Italy is back on track but over the last 6 months I’ve just been doing my best to keep it a float … my gorgeous business partner was going through some heavy issues in her personal life (which she was keeping close to her chest) and I was just doing a bit of a balancing act. This was all pretty much when we last spoke. So I was just getting things out the door for AAWI with not a lot of planning … things now all getting back on track.

    So I am so sorry again, I didn’t mean to let that slip ….

    All is good for me, I have been slack with the yoga but I’ve been swimming in the ocean pool in Freshie lately which has been wonderful. My kiddies are all well, we had a great weekend – headed to the basin on the ferry (across from Palam Beach) with the kids on Saturday for a big family picnic for a friends 40th which was heavenly.

    I hope you and your family are well.

    • LOVELY one… think nothing more of it. The festival went well…(festival of dreams). Gald to hear that all has restored itself to your happy balance. Always so radiant and always in my heart.


  2. I was really happy to glimpse this update from you the other day. You are a ray of sunshine, as always. And while Bent People was memorable, it’s the spirit of you that really shines. BTW, I still plan to take a yoga class with you one day 🙂 Love and hugs xo
