Ansley Watson of the Watson Method Pilates Studio invites seekers in a cultural exchange of play, nature, healing, exercise, music, food, relaxation and surf to join a group of likeminded adult campers and their kids to the diverse topographic lands of Ecuador. Through cultural interaction attendees will also gain an experience working with several non-profit organizations along the coast on projects that reflect agricultural growth, education and economic revitalization since the devastation of the earthquake.
