the beach ship San Juan del Sur and

25
00:01:50,540 –> 00:01:54,020
pretty quiet I guess because it’s cloudy

26
00:01:54,020 –> 00:01:56,760
and yeah this is it it’s basically just

27
00:01:56,760 –> 00:01:58,170
this one beach here that I’ll be at the

28
00:01:58,170 –> 00:02:01,850

29
00:02:01,850 –> 00:02:10,080
3/4 moon shape so Casa Ora is the place

30
00:02:10,080 –> 00:02:14,100

afternoon in town and I did forget to

47
00:03:36,920 –> 00:03:38,150

Nicaragua yoga retreat and we’re doing

194
00:15:48,079 –> 00:15:50,209
yoga this morning and I’ve really had an

195
00:15:50,209 –> 00:15:53,379
opportunity to I guess have space and

196
00:15:53,379 –> 00:15:55,730
movement and move through some stuff

197
00:15:55,730 –> 00:15:56,660
we’ve been going through a hard time

198
00:15:56,660 –> 00:15:59,389
right now and this retreat sort of

199
00:15:59,389 –> 00:16:01,970
landed at a interesting time even though

200
00:16:01,970 –> 00:16:03,319
I didn’t really know it was going to

201
00:16:03,319 –> 00:16:06,889
when I agreed to come here months ago so

202
00:16:06,889 –> 00:16:09,679
it’s a really peaceful place the yoga

203
00:16:09,679 –> 00:16:12,049
teachers Luisa and Susan were amazing

204
00:16:12,049 –> 00:16:16,519
and I really think I did some letting go

205
00:16:16,519 –> 00:16:20,720
here and I think it’s beautiful here so

206
00:16:20,720 –> 00:16:22,639
