Happy Spring (It's still snowy here, but it's melting and I don't need a hat most days or gloves)! I've been in hibernation mode for the last few months. I'm almost 22 weeks pregnant with a little boy and I've spent a lot of time reading, doing restorative yoga, taking walks, massaging tourists, and teaching yoga.
I like to say that my baby has taken me over; he tells me what to eat, when to sleep, and he allows me to do a little or a lot in a day. He's so worth it though. I feel him moving around through out the day. I tell my massage clients that they have two energy healers, and he's quite good, haha. I have a feeling he's going to be pretty funny.
We had such a fun retreat! We went snowshoeing or cross country skied everyday. I hired different local guides to take us to fun new locations. We hiked to Rainbow Lake on this day.
Hans was one of our favorite guides! He has an excellent sense of smell, which was great because we would have been lost without him. Also, it was so fun to see him jump through 3 feet of snow to get his stick.
Angie was our first guide with her trusty dog, Hans. She was so wonderful about helping us get our straps right with our snowshoes and making sure we were able to hike well in them. She's also very sweet and funny.
My favorite time to do yoga is at sunrise because that's when our subconscious loves to purge which helps us feel really balanced and energized all day. It's also a beautiful time to gaze out the window while doing yoga.
We had some lovely guest teachers at the retreat including lovely Sound Healer, Emma Kelleher. She helped us sleep so good that night! Sound Healing is where the teacher plays healing bowls that are tuned to different chakra frequencies. She intuitively plays them balancing all of our chakras.
I loved the storyteller's stories so much I forgot to take pictures. She told us great ghost stories from Breckenridge and Keystone! Viki and David really enjoyed the stories and Amber's yummy food.
Usually I help create the menu and do the shopping, but Amber did it all on this retreat and she was ommazing. We had two sugar and gluten free guests and she made delicious meals with gluten and sugar free options.
Not only did Amber cook for us, she also taught us how to cross country ski! She quoted my cousin; "you aren't really learning unless you're falling." We learned how to fall well.
Hilarie really mastered skiing after a few goes. It was so fun to see her get comfortable going down hills and gliding on the snow.
I'm so blessed to do what I love with people I adore, thank you!
