It was settled. I was headed to Nicaragua for a week to teach yoga, swing in a hammock, surf, play and be caught up in the magic ooeey-ness of wanderlust as I explored a new country.
Life had other plans for me.
Instead, I️ was caught up in a whirlwind of confusion. I️ was your quoted the wrong price for the retreat and after telling all of my willing students about the HUGE price change no one could afford to go. I️ sat devastated and in doubt of my yogi travel plan for a full 24 hours.
The next morning, I woke up to an email inviting me to teach yoga in GREECE. My doubt simmered away as I️ sat in disbelief. Maybe Nicaragua didn’t happen so that I️ could make Greece happen.
A couple months prior I️ interviewed with a travel company called, Crew Travelers that was looking for yoga instructors to teach in Greece. The owner of the company, Tara Menendez and I️ hit it off really well. We both had a love for travel, adventure, both had dogs and used the yoga practice to help us heal from miscarriage. ❤️
Something about this conversation felt right and I️ knew deep down we were supposed to meet even if only through a Skype call! The stars aligned and Tara chose 8 yoga instructors , including myself, to take on a yoga/travel retreat to Lesvos,Greece.
