WHAT A WEEK!!
Last year’s retreat was amazing, but this year…this year was SPECTACULAR!
Going into this retreat I had an idea of what to expect. My hubby and I attended last year so I knew about the AM & PM workouts, I knew where all the best places to eat and drink were (hello…Health Bar), and I knew the property, so I felt pretty prepared. (If you missed the recap last year here they are: The Workouts, The People, The Food, Video Recap)
But what I wasn’t prepared for was TEACHING during the retreat & all the SUPPORT I received when I did.
Truth be told, I was terrified to get up in front of all my peers. Even though I’ve been teaching since October – there’s something different about teaching to people who you are connected with on such a personal level. People that inspire me and people who I’ve inspired…it’s just different. Not to mention the fact that both Yoga-Doc and Diamond Dallas Page were there watching and critiquing our every move! BUT – once I got up on that stage and got in the groove – the feeling of fear went away and the love poured in! The interaction during the workout was INCREDIBLE! I can’t tell you how awesome it was to say “count it back” and actually have everyone count it back loud and clear! It was music to my ears!
Another great experience I had at the retreat was getting to reconnect with all the wonderful people I met last year and all the people I had yet to meet from Facebook and teamddpyoga. The people really make this program and being able to share a week with them was such an honor. If you want to check out some of the pics – CLICK HERE!
Chef Duane stepped up to the plate this year and showed everyone just how amazing gluten-free food can be with his cooking demonstration. I really loved his grilled marinated flank steak & tomato lasso sauce. Delish!
All in all the retreat was a blast and we even had some time to go horseback riding and swim in an open cenote. If you are thinking about attending the retreat next year – I highly suggest it. You’ll meet the most amazing people, eat the most delicious foods, and take your workout to the next level! Hope to see you there – BANG!
