I was fortunate enough to be invited to assist and teach at the first annual Recovery Yoga Retreat with Julie Lowes. Unfamiliar of its location (Vernonia Springs), I was more than pleasantly surprised. This location is serene, beautiful and lush. The haybale lodge at Vernonia Springs is a piece of art and accommodated our entire retreat with ease. The food Julie created was organic, healthy and plentiful. I can’t wait for the 2016 retreat!
