So how to put into words the experiences of this last week…. I don’t know, but I’ll try.

Thank you to you all. Thank you for trusting me with your retreat, I know how precious your time is and when you choose to spend even an hour of it with me in the class, I’m eternally grateful. But this was so much more.. A whole 5 days of incredible emotions. The journey we have all been on is nothing short of humbling.

So a little bit about this last week… Every single person that decided to retreat with me this week had their own life stuff they needed to process. I learned a little more about each and every one and I loved every minute of it all.

Connections are so important to me. When I decided to run retreats I knew I couldn’t be that teacher that offered a yoga class and then hides away.

I needed to be with them all every step of this retreat. Of course I encouraged time for themselves, stillness and quiet. But I wanted them to know I was there for them, for whatever they needed. I knew energetically and physically at the end of it all I would be exhausted but frankly I do not care. I have never ever laughed so much, cried, hugged, flowed, been still and been continuously on the move as I have in the last few days. I have never known such a group of people enjoy each other’s company as much as my retreat family have done this week.

I have always put my all into every thing I do because frankly I do not know another way. Life is too short not to. I am a perfectionist, a bloody hard worker, I anticipate what people might need next and I try to always be one step ahead. Because I care. That’s all. I care about how that person is receiving my retreat experience. I care about how they are feeling emotionally and physically and I will do everything I can to ensure they are welcomed just as they are.

I am so fortunate to have had such a wonderful community to retreat with. We really have made connections that will last a lifetime.

A massive and hugest thank you to a few people without whom I could not have offered such a special service to my yogis. Nicola; one of my bestest friends that just gets me. She knew how much this retreat meant to me and worked her backside off to make sure everyone was well looked after. Even after a very unfortunate and quite serious accident left her unable to use one arm, that fantastic and special human kept going. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I couldn’t have done this without you.

Debbie at Oodles’s Retreat. The most wonderful soul who tries so incredibly hard to make sure the house, the grounds and everything I needed was ready for me. Always responsive and supportive. Thank you.

And the best chef a retreat facilitator could ever wish for… Debbie at Villa Cuisine. Debbie, Chantal and Andrew were so amazing. Words and photos do not even come close to describing the creations she managed to delight us with. The food and the atmosphere at meal times is where many people can relax and enjoy getting to know each other and it is so important. I’ve been on many retreats and without bias I’m so grateful and over the moon that my retreat food is the best I have ever, ever had. Thank you so much team. I miss you feeding me already!

But for me for now, I need to reconnect back in with myself. I will spend the next few days sea swimming, earthing and getting back on my mat to fully integrate. But most of all, I need to be with my family where I feel centred. Ready to offer myself to you all again next time we meet on the mat.

Thank you so much for allowing me to create this experience. I’m so honoured, so grateful and so thankful. It’s what I was put on this earth to do. I have found my calling and I love you all for allowing me to realise my dream. K xx
