As a 48 yr old, young at heart woman, I had reached a time in my life where I wanted to do something for myself. My daughters were all grown up and didn’t need me accompanying them on holidays anymore, which meant I had regained my freedom. I decided I wanted to combine my passion for adventure with my love of yoga. So, I started making enquiries with a bit of trepidation. I came across a company who were very sympathetic to my desire to something by myself but also feel safe. So, after some careful consideration I booked a trip with Feel Great Breaks, in Denia Alicante. I cant praise Nikki and Jess enough for their warmth and hospitality, as well being very responsive to emails before my trip to ensure I was picked up from airport, etc. As I sat on the train to the airport I felt this enormous sense of independence and excitement as to how the trip would pan out.
Well, from the moment I landed in Alicante and met 3 lovely ladies, who I shared my cab with, I felt totally relaxed. One of the ladies, Maria, had been to this retreat before and loved it so much she brought along a couple of friends. They became my adopted family. Upon arriving at the retreat we were greeted with big warm hugs and smiles from the gorgeous Jess and charming Nikki. They made us feel at home with their little touches, like bringing us hot drinks in the morning to wake us up with lovely inspirational messages. The food was so good for you but at the same time so so tasty. Evenings out in the town were filled with tapas, wine and lots of chat. The yoga itself was so invigorating yet spiritually relaxing. Nikki would read us poems, one of which I fondly read regularly and tell friends, as one of my ‘memories’ of my amazing trip. At the end of our trip we were given little gifts by our hosts, all good for you but made with love by their fair hands.
If, like me you are ready to go and explore the world and get to meet new and exciting people, then this is the best holiday for that. You are in the safe, beautiful hands of Nikki and Jess, in stunning surroundings with great tasting food and delightful company. I for one will definitely be returning.
