While we enjoy new adventures, and travel to places like India, Cambodia, and other parts of the World, Bali and the southern islands of Thailand continue to be our home away from home for months each year. The lifestyle is laid back and relaxed, and the tropical climate is perfect for the lush vegetation that creates the backdrop for living 'Alfresco', or outdoors.
I love my lifestyle today, but it did not come easily. And it isn't always easy now. Though unfortunate, it is inevitable that while you are on this planet, we all will have to deal with situations and circumstances that literally 'rock our world'. Things that put life in perspective, and force us to realize what is truly important.
While we have been doing Yoga, and experiencing the benefits for many years, it was our intensive Yoga training in 2001 that deepened and solidified our commitment to this ancient science, and art. In the two month period of yoga six days a week, five hours a day, we saw physical and mental changes that far exceeded anything we had previously experienced. Not only did we lose weight, but our bodies became leaner, more toned and healthier (a byproduct), and mentally we became more relaxed, calm and yes, even more confident. The knowledge we gained, and continue to gain about ourselves, has been invaluable.
We feel very blessed and grateful that Yoga is a part of our journey. As Roger and I continue to seek our own higher level of consciousness, we will share what we find. Our fate is always about our choices. I hope by choosing to come to this site you find something that benefits you.

Our most popular travel package is our Yoga in Bali Retreat. Bali continues to imbue the very essence of healthy, balanced and Yogic living.
