This retreat changed my perspective dramatically. I was able to adapt that routine into my daily life and I am happy to report three weeks after I did the retreat I have lost a total of 9 pounds so far. Not only the weight loss, my cholesterol levels changed drastically as well. My LDL or “bad” cholesterol was always border line in the high range and my HDL or “good” cholesterol was always below what a healthy level would be. Two days ago I found out that my “bad” cholesterol went down 40 units and my “good” cholesterol went up 10 units! I feel great, I have more energy, I like the way I look, and even my confidence took advantage of this retreat. It truly was a life changing experience. Thank you so much Juan and Namaste.

      Learned life changing tips

    I had been wanting to write a review a couple of months ago but kept forgetting it... I am a chef and LOVE food.. And although I am not a big yoga person, I wanted to try this out specially because of the food. Juan is such an expert in his field! Learned lots on pro biotics and how to give a healthy and gourmet twist on food! Loved it.. Thank you Juan!...

      Unforgettable retreat

    Booked for me and my partner, was one of our few unforgettable experiences. We greatly enjoyed the food, the beach and the meditation with Juan's guidance and company. Will love to come back one day.

  • Paula Rendon   September 02, 2020

      Excellent service!!

    As soon as I arrived, Juan made me feel like I was at home. He is not only very knowledge but also very friendly and warm. His advice and guidance is now helping me lead a healthier lifestyle and I’m much happier because of that. Not only that, I am passing on the knowledge to my loved ones who are also now living healthier lifestyles too. I highly recommend this retreat to anyone who wants to change their life for the best.

      Very nicely sold.

    Due to the coronavirus outbreak, I needed to go home with a rescue flight and Life Synergy Retreat did not offer me any refund. Probably the worst experience of my life, I am glad I did not have to meet him.

      Life changing experience

    Where to begin ? Life Synergy Retreat was incredibly unique in so many enriching and powerful ways. The retreat for me had already began upon being picked up and welcomed at the airport by the wonderful host and director Juan. I was met with an endless space of blue sky, palm fringed, white sand beaches , stunning natural beauty and then ..there's the retreat ... I did not expect my time here to be so sacred, so very profoundly life changing. The setting, location and lodging was phenomenal. Daily Yoga , meditation , journaling , restorative alignment , massage , the different workshops especially the ones focusing on nutrition ( with the wonderful Nutritionist Erin from Longevity Holistic Wellness School ) , breath work and the most healing and nourishing meals I have ever tasted and experienced reset and rejuvenated me to my very core .I learnt so much , from preparing and making sauerkrut and inflammatory guacamole to diving deeper into releasing old negative patterns through automatic writing and yoga. I spent a week with Life Synergy and I look forward to returning again in the summer, this time for two weeks. These guys are absolutely amazing , they welcome all walks of life with a non-judgemental , unconditional love approach and really know their stuff :) I am so energised and full of mental clarity , ready to go back to the big city with the knowledge and new understanding gifted from this incredible experience ! Thank you so so much my dear friends . See you in June ! xx
