Many thanks for a great weekend. I really got a lot out of it, enjoyed it all, and will try my best to put the principles you shared with us into practice. I feel stronger and "cleaner" than I have for a long time, even after just 3 days. I've also lost just over a kilo, having enjoyed those filling and delicious meals you prepared. My shoulders feel stronger from the yoga and I was very happy to have been able to do some of those inversion poses you taught us.
