Organizer of Emerald Destiny Yoga Retreat
Hi, my name is Robert "Bob" Antares Smyres. To the right is a photo of me and my wife Melina. I was born in Miami, Florida and grew up in upstate NY. I have family members in a few parts of Florida so I frequently visit Florida. When I graduated high school I moved back to Miami, Florida because I was attracted to the ocean and warm temperatures. I lived there for about 3 years, then went to Columbus, Ohio for college. I then started a landscaping business. A few years ago I also started a small organic vegetable and herb farm. I now live in Northeastern Oklahoma where my wife took a job as a professor of graphic design in the Art department at Northeastern State University. I also travel to neighboring Arkansas often, and I like the Ozarks so much that I have purchased a beautiful 10-acre piece of land there.
Interests that I am passionate about:
Traveling, outdoor adventures, hiking, camping, fishing, kayaking, swimming, sports (playing sports not watching them), music, cooking, and trying new foods. I am also passionate about the saving the environment, renewable energy, natural building techniques,
and world peace.
I am very happy to announce this Yoga Retreat because it combines relaxation, rejuvenation and fun, along with self-improvement and health.
My job is to do everything I can to make sure you enjoy your Yoga retreat. I will be like your concierge, and you will see me cooking too! Join in if you would like and we will make some tasty (and healthy) meals.
I look forward to seeing everyone! :)
