Lika’s dream came true when she completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2010 in Washington DC, becoming a full-time yoga teacher. Initially Lika ( E-RYT 200) was drawn to yoga as a way to maintain her flexibility and strength but was intimidated by yoga's spiritual and scholastic side which she did not find in previous experiences with ballet and modern dance. After a short time however she discovered the power of yoga as a path to a more balanced, compassionate, meaningful and happy life.
Cost includes Friday and Saturday night stay, all meals, and all yoga sessions and other activities (hikes and s’mores-weather permitted)
