I remember the first time I ever signed up for a yoga retreat. I wanted to go to Thailand and I also wanted to immerse in yoga and myself.
I found Jonas Westring online and after researching his website I asked my friend if she wanted to go - she said yes, and we signed up. I was scared to go. I had a list of excuses why I shouldn't go; I can't afford it, it's far away, I don't have the time, maybe next year... Read More
It’s been 5 weeks since we left our cozy comfy home in clean California. We have seen and experienced so much that it is hard to put it in a package or comprehensive sentences, but we’ll do our best.
The lessons we’re learning are many and yet have a real subtle undertone. It’s like the contents underneath the sea are changing, but the surface layer still appears the same. In that way our conscious mind hasn’t completely caught up yet. The countries we are touring are confronting to the senses and confusing to our logic and knowns. Read More
I’m writing you from Koh Lanta, Thailand, where we are staying right on the beach, and it’s absolutely breathtaking. Thailand is so sweet and EASY! But anything and everything feels easy after India! Lesson #3: India shows you how much you have. Don’t forget it and get wrapped up in the “it’s not enough game!” Life is SOOOO abundant, and blessings should & MUST be counted daily! Read More
WHAT A JOURNEY!!! India by essence is anything and everything but easy. And to lead a group through the wild beast is Absolutely Extraordinary.

You go there to have the spoon ripped from your hand, whether you know it or not. In that way India is an initiation. Read More
Well.. Our trip has been... Amazing to say the least. India is indescribable in many ways. You have to see it or feel it to believe that a land like this exists. We left, what feels like a month ago but in “real” time was only 12 days. Time slows down in these parts as everything is so fresh and new– you have no choice but to live in the moment.
Lesson #1: it’s india and everything isn’t about faster, quicker, I want it now. It’ll come, whatever it is, but in its time, so, relax. And we have been. Learning to relax. What is all this hurrying about anyway?? Indians are remarkably easy going. They smile so big and the light they radiate from their eyes is breathtaking. And to the westerners that are addicted to comfort and speed, it’s like: ” What can they possibly be smiling at??”. Read More
