Ethan and Eugenia on the Bastide Avellanne grounds

This month we are so excited to introduce one of our most recent sojournistas, Eugenia, a 44 year old marketing professional and regular volunteer currently living in Atlanta, GA. She and her boyfriend Ethan joined us for our retreat in Provence, France. She added so much to the retreat, and we are grateful we got to know this kind, fun woman!

What drew you EAT.PRAY.MOVE Yoga Retreats?  

The opportunity to combine my love of yoga with my desire to travel. In addition, the flexibility to participate in as much or as little as desired and the various day trips, provided an opportunity to include my boyfriend Ethan who isn't an avid yogi.

What made you decide to take your retreat? 

The location. France has always been on my bucket list and I couldn't think of a better way to experience it for the first time than with Eat.Pray.Move.

How did your trip compare to your expectations? 

The exposure to a variety of yoga, range of excursions and relationships made far surpassed my expectations.

What was it like to have Erin Lewis as a guide? 

I felt at ease. It was clear Erin was not only a knowledgeable yoga teacher and knowledgeable about the area, but an easy going and accessible person. She taught thoughtful and challenging classes and provided all of us with a taste of the Provençal region from different points of view.

What were the top moments from your trip? 

Finally making it to France and the opportunity to experience it with Ethan, the relationships made, and the impromptu dance party :) It was a terrific and supportive group.

What lasting impressions did you have?  

The relationships made will be with me for a lifetime. I returned with a greater desire to travel, a deeper appreciation of yoga, and a desire to pursue yoga teacher training.

MERCI Eugenia for sharing your experience with us for the blog, and beautiful energy with us on the retreat!
