Yoshii Sasaki: A 91 Year Old Japanese Lady Living in Atenas, Costa Rica
I remember it as if it were yesterday, the first time I saw Yoshii Sasaki in Atenas. I was having lunch with my mother at Antano’s restaurant in downtown and a group of ladies walked in, one of which stood out in the crowed. She was dressed to the nines in a traditional Japanese kimono. Her face was so perfectly made-up that you would have thought she was a lifesize porcelain doll.
Yoga and pura vida go hand in hand. Simply put, yoga is an ancient Hindu discipline that strives to unit the mind, body, and spirit. Literally translated, pura vida means “pure life”. To Costa Ricans, “pura vida” is more than words, it is a way of life.
