I am teaching Pilates on the BodyTonic Pilates and OM Yoga Retreat in Tulum. I can’t believe it is almost the end of the week.

It has been so nice to be here with my mom and a great and diverse group of yogis and Pilates enthusiasts. Amazing food, best sleep of my life (to a soundtrack of waves and wind coming in through my windows), warm water, adventures, and great coffee at Coqui Coqui (owned by a NYC expat).

Best Soy Latte Ever.

I may never come home! or I at least hope to bring a little bit of this bliss back with me.
