Yoga in Jamaica – July 2014

on January 13, 2015

In July 2014 I went to visit my brother and his family in Jamaica for a few weeks. While working at YogaLife magazine in early 2014, I met Chandra Winzenried and when I found out that she was hosting a yoga retreat in Ocho Rios which coincided perfectly with my dates, I decided to go.

Here is my review which was published in the October 2014 issue of YogaLife magazine.

I think there was one more roll, but I can’t remember what it was. I also had another glass of wine. We were home early and T and I sorted out our packing for the following day.
