This past Labor Day, I had an intention of many years come to fruition...
leading a Women's Yoga Retreat on Nantucket! My colleague and friend, Carolyn Little, joined me as a teacher for this offering and we are so very grateful and blessed to have led, experienced, and moved through an amazing long weekend together on the island.

At Wade Cottages, which happens to be where I got married!
|Our coffee table puja with native wildflowers picked for each participant. |
Plus, labradorite, rose quartz, amethyst, and citrine.
And Ambrosia Chocolate truffles!
|It was so special to practice with such connection to the earth and all of the elements around us.|
|First practice on the bluff! A lovely day!|
|Carolyn giving some nice energetic assist during savasana.|
|Just over the bluff rests the sea.|
|Carolyn leading our first evening yin practice.|
|More vinyasa on Saturday|
|Nice forward folding and internal reflection|

Thank You so very much Lindsey, Caleb, and Claudia!

|Enjoying the afternoon|
|Love this place. Dear friends.|
|Claudia made our dessert! |
Sauteed spiced apples with cookies and creme fraiche!
We were so lucky.
|In memory of dear Watson, a most loving and wonderful dog.|
|We cooked dinner together every night! |
So fun to learn new things, have health-filled discussion, and enjoy.

|On our last morning, Carolyn and I led practice together! |
It was sunny and playful.
