Vinyasa, Vinyasa, Vinyasa! The time I spend on the mat each week is the best part of my day! I've avoided yoga for close to a decade because I had no idea how to get started. When my friend from the gym told me about her yearly prenatal yoga retreat up in Costa Rica, I just finished a last-minute crowdfunding campaign to cover my piece of the travel cost and jumped on it!
If I'm being honest, the first half of the 10-day yoga retreat was all about my pregnant lady business – and I was extremely self-conscious and definitely needed it! (ahem, hormones!)
Once we got to Costa Rica I had a new appreciation for the practice. I anticipated and enjoyed the physical strength and strengthening, but I absolutely LOVED the mental peace it brought. Even on my best days, motherhood has the ability to make me feel exhausted, overwhelmed and a million different emotions at once. Vinyasa yoga helped me clear the fog and let me enjoy the practice of nourishing myself and my baby with the breath, and for the first time, I even found some zen in the classes.
All of the classes were led by Jennifer Wolfe. Prior to the retreat I had never heard of Wolfe, but I would absolutely pay to train with her again. She's fantastic in every regard. I was very impressed by her flow, and she designs every class to be challenging for the beginner all the way into an advanced pose.
She uses every pose to transition directly into another, flowing smoothly from one pose to the next. She monitors her class very closely and talks about the benefits of each pose, helping the participants to get the most from their practice. The breadth of practice offered was very helpful for me, as I was able to work with a variety of poses with relative ease and get a handle on a lot of the basics of Vinyasa yoga.
The class room was an elegant and relaxing space, but what I loved most about it was the instructor. I think Jennifer Wolfe has the best attitude in the business and her classes are clearly a labor of love.
I'm actually going to go ahead and sign up for her advanced training program after posting this blog; I'm going to monetarily support the business for a long time with a single investment!
