I loved the excercises we did there and overall vibe, it was so nice. For me it was a total rollercoaster of emotions, but I learned so much from it, and I had all these amazing people beside me who lended me a hand or a shoulder to cry on when I needed it. I learned so much about myself and others, I’m so grateful for it. I learned how to be more playful and how to enjoy life more fully. It was truly amazing opportunity and I would totally recommend it to my friends!
