This summer I led the Inversion Workshop at the Colombia Yoga & Wellness Retreat. I get so excited when I teach. I lost track of time but luckily my co-retreat host gave me a heads up on timing. We broke down a lot about the core and some of the learning traps that happen when we begin to introduce inversions in our practice. With extra time in class, at least more than most studio classes now, we end with a full cool down and meditation.
After practice, we head on over to breakfast.
Experiencing a retreat in a different part of the world means we get to try exotics fruits, juices, and different breakfast styles. The cooks and chefs are so passionate about what they do.
On the first Spring Awakening Yoga Retreat, we had passionate vegan chefs, while on the Colombia Yoga & Wellness Retreat we had a world-renowned chef provide us with full details. It felt like that reality cooking show where the chef comes out and says something like “Alright everyone this is a buttery toast with an exotic savory spread with a dash of salt, caramelized onions and…..” you get the picture haha
After breakfast, if it’s a day for a planned excursion, everyone starts to get ready to head out soon. Half-day excursions are usually our favorite way to go so that we can be back for lunch.
