What a great idea! I could not believe that 6 families could co-exist and not only avoid arguments and tensions but co-operate and have a fantastic and blissful time together 24hours a day for 7 straight days. Any great course or workshop needs a great facilitator/teacher. Jess set the program, mood and example. Sure she is a fantastic yoga teacher though Jess handled each person's unique requests and requirements with patience and joy (inc children).
Yoga is meant to flow into ones life and transform illness, unhappiness and tension into health, happiness and ease. This family retreat went well beyond a formal yoga retreat for the whole family and into the realm of creating a perfect community for all to learn and grow from.
I did not hear one stressed mother, angry father or one word of dissatisfaction. Amazing to experience how a mature loving family can function with joy, love and patience - ll the benefits of yoga brought to the family unit. Truly remarkable. Thank you Jess for your love, patience and dedication.
