Such a lovely day!

Just to say a huge thank you for such a lovely day on Saturday.  As usual Jill’s yoga was top notch and your hospitality, including the fabulous lunch, was wonderful (thanks also to David who looked after us while you were busy in the afternoon).  Please also  pass on my thanks to Theresa who with her skilled massage eased my painful neck.

It was lovely to spend a relaxing day with my girls and one of the best Christmas presents I have received. I really would hope that we can repeat the experience another time.

Thought the picture below might make you smile.

I’ll look forward to seeing you again at Alphington one day.

With best wishes

Jenny, Megan and Kirsty

A huge thank you ...

A huge thank you Lynda to you and Jill for such a wonderful day.  The yoga, treatment, lunch and location are all wonderful, and combined together, make for a really special day.  And meeting such a lovely bunch of other people was the icing on the cake.

Warmest good wishes,
