Retreat Time

I have not written for awhile due to a well needed rest up in Big Sur. During my time I was able to focus on my yoga practice, step away from teaching, and step into the space that Big Sur provides. Every time I set my planner down, leave my cell phone and computer and drive away, the questions and worries that swirl around in my head lose their power. In the space good ideas take the spotlight.

While up there soaking in sulfer hot springs and in my thoughts I decided it was time to share my latest project with everyone. For the past year I have been brainstorming with my good friend, student, and partner Ally Lopez Eckert. This fall Ally and I will be opening a yoga retreat center on the North Shore of Kauai. The picture above is sunset from the back porch of the house we will be using for the retreat center... It is a unique and beautiful location with all the healing energy of the North Shore. I will have more information and plenty of pictures in a few months!

Until then, whether it's somewhere local where we can turn off the noise of our day to day routine, or a far off tropical paradise, I hope we can all plan a little personal retreat for ourselves.
