This time we went in search of children. It ended up being a barnyard yoga party. Complete with headstands, assists, broken english, hilarious attempts at spanish, coconut drinks, and a lunchtime feast. I will never forget the conversation I had three young boys. They didn’t know english. I didn’t know spanish. In those moments I learned more spanish and laughed harder than I did the entire week. I hope to return one day with more time to play and a collection of prints to share with them. It was a pure delight.

Thank you so much for this experience.

Want to go? Do yoga? Visit villages? You can!

Jenny Cressman, of Huntsville organizes two trips a year.  A spring session, open to men and women and fall session open to just women. It’s an amazing expeience. I want to do it every year. Next women’s yoga retreat will be early November 2012.

Email Jenny with inquiries, cubanacorazon@gmail.com.Jenny also owns reVibe! downtown Huntsville, Ontario. It’s a funky little consignment store with a conscience. You’re bound to find a few treasures. Last trip I bought a sexy little vintage fur jacket and a gorgeous pair of dove earrings made of a  melted brass, old land mines in fact. Go, you’ll love it.

    Wonderful photos and write-up, Kate! I am already mentally packing for the next trip, even though I haven’t fully physically unpacked from the last one. The All-Girl-Yoga Posse 2012 is tentatively scheduled to depart Nov. 1st. Maya, in the last photo with Wendy Martin, is now being promoted as an on-site yoga instructor and certified physiotherapist. This new role is thanks to Wendy’s lessons and encouragement, as well as our support. The groups I have been bringing demonstrated to the resort management that yoga is popular and would enhance what they offer; with a little encouragement, this door was opened for Maya. She is super-excited to be able to use her skills to do what she truly loves – teaching yoga!
