What to say? Another year, another wonderful experience in Paradise. It's hard to put into words, the tranquility, serenity and calm that this locale provided to me and my partner. Second year in a row, birthday/anniversary getaway, 4 night 5 day trip where we eat great meals, are welcomed by attentive, friendly staff and treated like royalty with the best accommodations, care and concern. The Aveda Spa on premises has really experienced staff as well and we always feel in great hands and well taken care of by them. Shirley Heights was a must do on Sunday Night and in general all beaches in Jolly Harbour were exceptional. Highly recommend Antigua and especially Sugar Ridge.
I stayed with family who had a villa here. Every day I joined for yoga at The Shed. This is a beautiful structure, with polished mahogany floors, open sides with spectacular views to the jungle and the ocean. There are three yoga teachers who were all excellent but very different: the yoga is quite traditional based on sun salutations. Clemmy - plays yoga music, guides you through breathing. She is actually starting her own class just on breathing from Monday which sounds fantastic. She will sometimes give forehead smoothing with some lovely essential oils
Lynn - good step by step instructions, I enjoyed doing pigeon in this class.
South African Ros - the most spiritual yoga teacher: also will roam the class and help with positioning to get that little bit extra stretch if she sees you out of position, which i personally like a lot. I think her classes tend to last one hour 15 mins. She is able to give all the Indian names for all the yoga moves.
We will hopefully be back next October to do this again as for me this was one of many highlights of this trip.
