This women's weekend retreat was the very first retreat that I conceived of, created, executed and taught all myself. Honestly, I was so nervous! I went outside of the usual retreat center arrangement and found our lodging myself. I brought on my friend and aaaaamazing cook Julie to cater the morning and evening meals. I scouted both hot springs, and found the perfect fall hike. It had all the components of something I would love... but still - would they like it? Would it be good? Could I manage teaching and taking part in all the adventures? How would the house be? I was nervous!
It went so well. Even better than I could have imagined! It was a beautiful bunch of women, the food was amazing, the house was a huge hit and so lovely to stay and practice in, and I think the yoga delivered and intention practices were pretty damn on point. I definitely had a little moment on the porch after everyone had gone. A moment of massive gratitude and appreciation of the absolute beauty of our mountain home. Here are some photos to give a peak of the fun. I'll definitely be doing this one again next year!
