FLOW Boho Retreat at Flotsam and Jetsam, La Union

December 27 to 29, 2013

the last days of the year and we were off to La Union for another FLOW Surf Yoga Samba Weekend Retreat, but with a smaller group this time. 

I love how we all bonded and got to really know each other. 

We arrived and the air was quite chilly but lounging on the beanbags to a game of speed dating was good to break the ice!

The schedule was a lot looser and this was exactly what I needed..this was the first time that FLOW felt like a vacation for me:) and having the kiddies with me to enjoy the beach was more than i could ever ask for! 

Flotsam and Jetsam Artist Hostel is sooo damn cute!! I love it there!

Evening ashtanga yoga with Carla Suiza in the front lawn of Flotsam and Jetsam to break a sweat.

The waves were quite messy so we didnt get to swim that much, but was soooo happy to soak in the sun!

Paxyboo loved the sun and sand, as always! 

We took a jeep to Bacnotan where the waves were friendlier and Luke Landrigan and the instructors of San Juan Surf Resort taught surfing lessons. 

Smoothie workshop always a treat! Thanks Moringana, Lightwater and Superfood Grocer for the goodies!

Wood-fire oven pizza was good, sangria for p100 was awesome! 

Sunset samba with Bogey and Denise of Samba School Imperatriz Filipinense plus Benny on the tambo since drum director Toni wasnt with us. 

 Movies projected on an outdoor screen to cap the night off. 

Greek lunch with the FLOW group and our new found friends before the ride home. 

Excited for the next retreat! 

getting stoked, relaxing garden yoga sessions, samba drumming and dancing, making green shakes and raw snacks, outdoor film showings, napping on bean bags, enjoying sunsets with a jar of sangria, hearty breakfast food, wood fired pizzas, making new friends and making awesome memories! and that's how we ended 2013!

thank you to everyone who joined and supported our last retreat of the year! thank you for that wonderful flow weekend!

Keep posted for FLOW's calendar of retreats for 2014! Coming soon!

Mantra for 2014! :P 

p.s. i realized that i am not depressed afterall!! I just need a healthy and consistent dose of FLOW retreats to keep my heart happy!! :P
