Choosing that special place to take a group for an 8 day yoga holiday is a priority for Sunshine Yoga and Health. "We live with so much stress, tension and anxiety daily, so it is extremely important to chose only 'very special' destinations where these factors can be eliminated for at least one-week", comments Lyn.
She adds that "both Lord Howe Island and Lakes Taupo & Wanaka, New Zealand are indeed very special places on our planet and offer only the purest energy, tranquility, peace and unsurpassed beauty". Our Italian tours now include Positano, Tuscany, North Umbria and Umbria. These are all undoubtedly very special locations. We stay out-of-town surrounded by nature.
Group involvement is a powerful tool for healing, nurturing and friendship. Fun and laughter is shared with the vast array of personalities that come together.
