2010 Yoga Holidays : LORD HOWE ISLAND NSW Australia
Sunshine Yoga 8-Day Holiday at LORD HOWE ISLAND 2010, Leanda Lei Apartments, New South Wales, Australia
7 to 14 November 2010
Guests/Friends : Elise (Melbourne), Kerri, Hayley, Maria (all from Brisbane); Lyn (facilitator).
This was a special tour organised for just 4 guests / friends. Elise, who had terminal cancer, was gifted this holiday by her close friends Kerri & Hayley. Maria ‘found us’ and needed the holiday to help recovery from chronic fatigue. As a doctor, Maria became a godsend when I (Lyn) fell down a 2 metre volcanic rock cliff, gashing open my scalp (which required 30 stitches)and fracturing 2 vertebra. Dr Maria attended me until the SES arrived. It was an isolated spot. Lord Howe has a 2 bedroom hospital with one doctor and 2 nurses. I was in good hands.
An amazing group connection formed and we continued our adventures, laughed, cried and had heaps of fun.
On 22 March 2011, our beautiful friend Elise passed away at age 43 years, from secondary breast cancer. Rest in peace beautiful lady. We are all better people for having you in our life and sharing special moments. Lord Howe Island will forever be ‘your’ place Elise and the memories of our holiday together will keep us all connected in the most beautiful way. Our love always…the Moo Moo Girls
