I first became a yoga teacher 12 years ago – and when I got my credentials, I also got the invitation to join Fitness Pro Travel – a marvelous group that contracts with resorts to staff their yoga needs.
I feel a bit embarrassed I waited this long to take advantage of it – but after having spent my birthday week as a teacher in Club Med Ixtapa, I’m now hooked. Some might balk at the idea of a “working vacation” but given that teaching yoga is my calling – it made the week even more special. (If you’d like my full week Trip Advisor review where I name names — all good — click here.)
What was especially sweet was the mix of students. Club Med is famous for its array of events — there were water sports, beach sports and land sports – so not everyone will take yoga. And in your classes, you will have some people with regular practices (they’re fairly obvious) but you are blessed with many folks just giving yoga a try. To see these fit and fun people discovering the joy of yoga is magic in and of itself.
I have become Facebook friends with many of them (and many of the wonderful young GO employees at the resort) and plan to do this at least annually. Join me?
