This retreat was absolutely fantastic! The facilities – truly beautiful, grounded in nature; the teachers, best in the world, gifted and talented; the program – comprehensive, taught from a very positive approach (considering the negative topic) the food – delicious, michelin star quality. As a practitioner of yoga for 18 years, this retreat was by far the best yoga experience of my life! Highly recommend Frances Kelly
