I want to thank you all for this amazing experience. I feel truly blessed to have spent the week here immersed into your way of living. The love and authenticity I’ve seen and felt here has been uncanny. You all have truly opened my eye in ways that is hard to describe with words. – Hollie, 2018

This place is a magical getaway from the stress of everyday life. I don’t have a lot experience with yoga besides the occasional class at my local 24 hour fitness so this proved to be a very immersive experience.  There’s a lot of focus on proper breathing, meditation as well as basic yoga.  The class leads were extremely helpful, funny and answered any questions that we had.  – Oleg, 2016
