Never would I thought of taking a trip to Iceland without your instigation/inspiration! And I am thrilled that I did it. What a marvelous landscape - the colours – strewn boulders, - greened with lichen and mosses, the dense blackness of the basalt sand, miles of indigo lupine, the icy blue of the icebergs – all elements of unknown terrains.
Thank you so much for your introduction to them!
This yoga retreat was a really good experience for me: walking in the forest, the morning meditation session, the relationship between mudra and pranayama. The beauty of the Scorpion pose and the transitional feeling from Wheel to standing were unforgettable. I feel lucky to be one of the participants.
The site is just gorgeous and the food is delicious.
Thank you very much.
I wanted to thank you for the yoga retreat last weekend. I am enormously grateful to have participated. As with the retreat last summer, I found the experience very life-giving. I find your teaching very restorative and affirming and because of that I end up being able to do things I never thought possible, like head stands and hand stands and just the general comfort level I experience increases.
The people who participate in your workshops are thoughtful, with a desire to live their lives to the fullest which takes a lot of commitment and courage. It is a privilege to spend a few days with such amazing people. Thanks for making that possible.
Monica and Tama, I want to thank you once again for a wonderful week in Costa Rica at Luna Lodge and I wanted to share my memories with you.
As we approached the air strip in our 6 seater plane I remember the beautiful view. We disembarked our aircraft and as I stepped out, the Scarlet Macaus settled in the giant trees made their loud call. I thought, "What a warm welcome!". Our vehicle drove up a long rugged road to Luna Lodge. Lana and her smiling staff greeted us with ice cold water, just what we needed. I wandered up to my bungalow thinking, "This is paradise!". Super-sized vegetation along with neighbours like lizards, monkeys, birds, butterflies and many more creatures to come.
Our yoga classes were perfectly planned, keeping in mind the heat and the climbing we did daily just getting to and from the yoga platform.
I remember the hike and cooling off under the waterfall. I remember the 14km hike and swimming in the river. Resting on rocks by the ocean and having a picnic lunch. Our guide Oscar and his knowledge of the terrain and all the animals.
Most of all, I remember how wonderful I felt with the two of you.
I didn't keep a journal while I was at Luna Lodge, but I REMEMBER...
