I love water.  And especially the salty Ocean!  In two weeks I will be swimming in the Ocean off the island of Barbados.  I am getting super excited!  I love many things about my raw food yoga retreat!  I love teaching the daily yoga classes.  I love the warm days.  I adore drinking fresh young coconut water!  The incredible avocados and papaya and mangoes are extraordinary.  But my absolute favourite part of the trip is swimming.  Swimming after getting all hot in the sun!

Someday I would love to swim with you.

near and far

there is something so magical about being far from home.  something awesome about moving from cold to hot.  something so very healing about the ocean.  here are a few images that capture my most recent raw food yoga retreat in barbados.  it was an adventure full of laughter, and swimming, and napping.  of yoga by the ocean.  and papaya breakfasts and chocolate smoothies for lunch.  it was a crazy wrong side of the wrong kinda adventure.  where the roads felt so narrow.  and the hills so steep.  the views stunning!  and the coconuts…..DSC_0008DSC_0048DSC_0328DSC_0452IMG_0071DSC_0100DSC_0727DSC_0741DSC_0189DSC_0174DSC_0553i am back home in the cold of ontario november.  -13 today!  and i happy to be home.  and refreshed from all the sun and sand and sea i was blessed to experience.  maybe you will join us next year?
