I almost missed out on this life-changing experience because I thought the timing wasn’t right. My heart told me this is what I need, but my brain kept reminding me that I have responsibilities. Two young children (1 and 4 years old) and obligations that won’t allow for this. Luckily, my partner put my mind at ease, and I asked Keri if it would be possible to bring along my whole family. Keri was so supportive of the idea and it encouraged me to go for it! And I am so glad that I did.


I chose SYI because of the amazing sacred locations. I’m a big believer in the importance of our environment, and I wanted to take this spiritual journey in a beautiful, inspiring place. Costa Rica was the perfect place! I really felt ONE with Mother Earth and all that she has to offer as I dug deep into my own soul.


I will always remember how unified I felt with my instructors and the women in my group. We all opened up and shared from the deepest place in our hearts. There was so much safety and trust, and this allowed everyone to share freely. Some memories I will never forget are: running into the ocean naked together and feeling so free.

Every time Nadine and Mindi told us there was a surprise and we would all look at each other with so much excitement. Our collective “OM” and how powerful it felt to feel the vibrations as we held each other in a safe circle. The way my sisters gathered around me and held space for me in silence as I cried after sharing a difficult story…….


We are all bonded for life from this experience, and we continue to keep in touch and encourage each other as we put into practice what we learned through the program.


I plan to use my 200-hour yoga training to share the joy of yoga and spirituality with others. Whether it is through guiding my family and friends through a practice, or teaching a class on the beach by my house, I want to share yoga with as many people as possible.


One day, I hope to open my own studio as a safe place for women to retreat to. A place that takes care of the mind, body and soul. The 200-hour training with SYI was a stepping stone, and inspiration for all that is to come in the future. And I will be forever grateful for this opportunity.
