Namaste from back home!!
I hope this email finds you SO well! I have been home now for three weeks and the time has just flown!
My travel date back from Portugal coincided with the full moon, and I wound up getting stuck in Newark overnight due to countless flight complications and delays. Thankfully, I finally made it home a day late and Steven was waiting for me at the airport.
I love that I got to come home to such a warm welcome from him, my family, my dog, and everyone at Yoga Lemon. I really struggled with the decision to come back when I did, and if it weren’t for so much love State-side I would have turned around and flown right back!
I returned when I did for an exciting reason, though. My graduation ceremony from Rollins was the Saturday after I got back. Still jetlagged and very much unadjusted, I walked across the stage. It was exciting though not what I was expecting, and I think that I would have enjoyed it infinitely more had I been better rested.
Since then, I’ve been getting caught up with loved ones, teaching, and planning some really exciting things. Oh, also healing from parasites and still working with my left leg, but those are stories for another time.
In my last email, I asked for your opinion about yoga retreats. I am SO THRILLED to announce that I have organized a retreat to the south of Portugal in the fall! There are only 6 spots available, so I am giving you first dibs. I would love for you to join me in my favorite place for a few days of relaxation and yoga. The retreat will be held at the beach where I spent my summers growing up, and my fondest memories are from there.
The town is called Altura, and it is a ten minute drive away from Spain’s border. The quinta where the retreat will be hosted is within a short walking distance to the beach as well as to the quaint street of shops, restaurants, and cafes that leads there.
There will be 2 yoga classes and one guided meditation per day, 3 healthy meals per day, 2 excursions, 1 reiki treatment, and plenty of free time for reflection time at the beach and pool included. This will be an intimate setting, with four private rooms and one shared room available. The emphasis of this retreat is rest and relaxation, though there will be plenty of time to explore the local surroundings.
More information about this retreat is located on the "home" page of my site and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have surrounding it.
Thank you so much for following along with me and allowing me the opportunity to share my travels and ideas with you. I can’t tell you how much our correspondence meant to me while I was gone.
Please keep in touch!
Lots of love and God bless,
