My sister and I spent a week at a Yoga Retreat in Nicaragua with Julia Gavin. Julia is fantastic! We had 2 hours of energising Ashtanga Yoga practice each morning and then more of a workshop opportunity in the afternoon. All of it was wonderful. Julia is a true professional. She worked through all the poses with us in class in the morning and had more one on one training on particular body parts that each of us was interested in during the afternoon practice. She has the movements of a dancer and a lot of knowledge about the history and philosophy of yoga. It was exerting but at the same time relaxing and restorative. I especially loved the 15 minutes we spent on the beach in meditation. She also has a great sense of humor and is a lot of fun. If I have the opportunity, I would love to take more classes with Julia.
