There were ten of us this year, four were newcomers. We had a dorm room all to ourselves. Hiking to the fourth floor multiple times a day gave everyone a workout beyond the yoga classes. Oof. But the air circulation was good up there, and it ended up being comfortable even with the hot weekend (there's no air conditioning).
I skipped both afternoon yoga classes this year. Shocking! I chose instead to spend time gabbing with my friends and napping. Wow, I needed that. I attended a few of the workshops, but for the most part I spent time outside, wrote in my journal, and read. I even had a chance to try out the new-and-improved mediation room on Monday. All of the windows allowed for abundant sunlight and air. It was delightful.
We ate nearly every meal outdoors, including breakfast. Usually it's too chilly in the mornings to eat out, but not this year. It was hot out on the patio, but it was cooler than being in the cafeteria. The breeze made such a difference.

Before we knew it, the weekend was over. Several of the group departed Sunday afternoon and the rest of us left on Monday.

Another successful yoga weekend. I'm glad you gals could make it; I enjoyed my time with you.
