May 2017: Writing and Yoga Travel & Retreat in Greece

I’m joining my dear friend Laura Davis, on her Write, Travel and Transformation trip to Greece.  She’ll be leading the writing, and I’ll be teaching a mostly daily yoga class. The core trip will focus on visiting three wonderful locations in Crete, including a five day retreat in a beautiful medieval village surrounded by olive trees.  There’s an optional add-on to Santorini too.  The yoga will focus on self-care and integrating experiences, whilst traveling and writing.  Judy Slattum and Made Surya are the guides-- I’ve been lucky to know them for many years and enjoy their travel perspectives and friendship.  Come join us too!  Here’s the link to Laura’s website for all the information:
