Hi Liz,
Just a thankyou note about the wonderful retreat you ran at Daku in Savusavu.
I enjoyed all aspects of the retreat: the yoga, the other attendees, the resort, the food, the warm friendly people and their customs, the excursions – the list goes on and on.
Most of all was the benefit I received from the yoga. Your teaching was just fantastic. Your gentle, yet lively manner together with your intuition resulted in wonderful yoga classes. I have returned home full of inspiration to continue to extend and deepen my own practices.
Liz, your integrity, ecological awareness and fun-filled attitude carried on from the classes throughout the whole retreat making it all such a pleasure to be a part of. I hope the other attendees gained as much benefit and enjoyment from the retreat as I did.
Thank you and Namaste,
Margie Zea, Queensland, Australia
