For most of us, we come home from a trip feeling rejuvenated and inspired to make a change only to find that inspiration fade. Before we know it it seems as though that trip or seminar never happened. This was most certainly not the case with Tropical Transformation. Over a month has passed and I smile each day as I think back on what was truly a transformative adventure. But a retreat such as this is only as great as its leaders. Tory Dube and Lauren Lee are not simply organizers of a trip, they are teachers, mentors and motivators. The care, attention, professionalism and dedication shown was above and beyond. But it was the connectivity and friendship that blossomed that made this not simply a trip but an amazing journey. Personally, it was the exact medicine I was looking for, infusing me with the strength, empowerment and energy I was searching for. From the exceptional yoga classes to the thought provoking workshops and sessions, to the camaraderie within the group - one thing was better than the next. I've never taken a yoga class before and I left with a love and appreciation. I never thought much about caring for my health and I left with a deeper understanding of the importance of both physical and mental health, along with nuggets of wisdom that I can easily apply into my everyday life. Prior to this trip I was feeling tired, beat and I felt as though I lost a certain spirit and energy I always had. Through Tory and Lauren's unwavering kindness and dedication, this retreat helped me reconnect and tap back into a strength I had inside of me all along. All adventures must come to an end, but it's the truly transformative ones that leave you feeling as though it's just the beginning. Thanks Tory and Lauren for an experience I'll never forget!
