Wow where do I begin. This was one of the most authentic and life enhancing experiences I have ever had. In a very short month I learned more than I could ever imagine, and I owe it all the the incredible teachers. They truly are the absolute best in their field. I gained so much knowledge just from being in the teachers’ presence and by observing their lifestyles it is very clear that they truly practice what they preach. They are extremely dedicated to their students and put a lot of time and consideration into each and every lesson and practice. I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to study with such incredible teachers in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!
