Yoga + Vacation + Friends = Paradise

I arrived back in Charlotte around 7 p.m. tonight but not sad that vacation is over but incredibly grateful for the experience. The past seven days of vacation have been more amazing than I ever could have imagined. I think was more smiling, laughing, loving, happiness, peace and gratitude on this trip than there’s been in the last year. I took so many pictures that I don’t even know where to start but here are more that I want to share with you. Like I mentioned earlier in the week, I will be writing a formal review of the resort soon.

Two yoga practices a day.

Breakfast of my dreams every morning. Homemade juices (passionfruit, watermelon and orange pictured above), a pastry basket served with homemeade jams, coffee and fresh fruit. I could seriously eat this every day of my life.

Daytime relaxation. I grew especially fond of the floating pool chairs and spent many hours reading in them. I loved the infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Usually, I feel like I need to be on the beach but this provided the best of both worlds!

You can’t get 24 yogis together on the beach without some yoga happening. We definitely got our fair share of stares as we did everything from balancing poses, to handstands to partner work.

Chips, guac, margaritas poolside. I will talk more about the food and service at the resort later but it was amazing.

Sunset walks.

Group dinners.

Yoga family (this is not everyone). I am so lucky.

    Wow, the resort looks like *just* the kind of place I like stay at when vacationing. Was it a boutique resort?

    So happy that you had a wonderful time! It looks like pure awesomeness, especially those sunset walks. Looking forward to reading your review. I’m heading into NYC for margaritas, chips, and guacamole tonight and cannot wait. Yes, I secretly wish I was having it on the beach in a bikini, but NYC will have to do. 😉

    It looks like you had such a wonderful time, it is so great that your were able to get away for a bit. Being able to practice yoga everyday is just an added bonus!
