Going on a yoga retreat can be life enhancing, even life changing. It gives you time and space away from day to day life to immerse yourself in a subject that can take you beyond your limitations and expectations. This is another lovely quote from a recent client who had a very positive experience of his very first yoga holiday:
“What a wonderful oasis of calm. Everything was so lovely, lovely people, fabulous food, sunshine and great yoga. I’m hooked!“
