Kim, Canada, March 2107

During the last week of March I had the fortunate experience of enjoying a yoga retreat at El Coco Loco in Nicaragua.  The instructor for this retreat was Julia Gavin.  I was traveling alone and from the beginning Julia made me feel welcome.  Answering all of my emailed questions promptly and with friendly enthusiasm, I knew I would be in good hands.

I was so right!  Julia’s Ashtanga Yoga Yoga Classes where some of the best I’ve ever attended.  Her calm, clear instruction, strong knowledge of the correct postures and patience with us all were so appreciated.  It is obvious Julia is passionate about what she does and passes this enthusiasm on to her students.  Going out of her way to help me before class with postures I was having trouble with, Julia gave her best.

I wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend any of Julias’ classes and retreats.  Her fun, open and enthusiastic personality was a joy to us all!
