These are just some of many beautiful moments from our yogamonks Italy retreat. Missing you all already, and looking forward to re uniting in london. The week was full of challenges, love, gentle and long lasting bonds, compassion, humour, mimi’s pasta!, gelato, glamourous photoshoots, over coming fears, joy and re finding each moment again and again within ourselves and with each other. Looking foward to the next one in spain in september, and many more in 2013 xx

I have only a couple of spaces left on my Urbanyogamonkey retreats in Italy (3 spaces remain) and Spain (2 spaces remain) this May 2012. A chance to unwind, learn the ‘how’ of letting-go, laugh and make new friends, these retreats are set to nourish, enhance and inspire you for the year ahead.
