    I’ve sent 4 email with no response. No refund and trying to be patient. They were quick on the emails before the cancelation. Now, no word.

    I have not received my refund for the cancelled workshop. I’m wondering if anyone else is having this problem and how I can resolve it. Thanks!

    Hi friends,

    Just wanted to post a note that I received a refund check in the mail today. Yours is probably on its way, if you havent already received it. :)

    Still no refund here. I have to say, I am VERY disappointed. This whole Islamorada thing was a total waste of time.

    I am glad to hear people are receiving refunds. I have not and cant find an email or a phone number to inquire with. It seems some people have been able to do so (Gaby got a number of a nice girl we can talk to?). Any help would be appreciated.

    When this place opens, I have a 3 bedroom vacation home very nearby, MM 82, on the bay which I rent. I call it Paradise South. I can connect you to my rental agent and there are pictures on their website at When I was down there, the new yoga site looked lovely, although interestingly enough it is in the back of the Coral Bowl, bowling alley.

    the ashtangaguru (at) yahoo (dot) com didn’t work for me. Any other suggestions?
