This retreat was the very best “vacation” I have ever had. Everything about is was perfect; beautiful and serene location, charming rooms, helpful staff and remarkable food all aligned for transformation! I have never felt so whole, welcome and accepted. Vishva’s presence is so powerful; he left me feeling inspired, empowered and motivated to be my optimal self, every moment. His intention landed, the simple instructions he gave have changed my life; still glowing two weeks later. I did not know it was possible to love yoga more, after this retreat I am more determined to practice, share and honour this ancient and sacred medicine. Grateful for the experience and for my Guru. So much love. Namaste.

Another amazing year!! As Yoga is a practice so are yoga retreats. I feel like I am getting better and better at understanding what I need to get out of this retreat and how to do that. Prior to the retreat I was suffering a malaise I couldn't shake, simple tasks were difficult and, at the pace I was going, true contentedness seemed achievable only through the course of many lives. Post the retreat my battery feels charged and most things in my daily life as a common "householder" feel quite effortless. I walked down a street on the Monday after the retreat that I always walk after work. I was simply amazed by the amount of things I was observing, smelling and feeling, my senses were uniquely alive and my head was, for once, quiet. I was seeing everything, observing the world, I felt like a part of it. I saw every bike on every balcony of the apartment buildings. I noticed beautiful painting jobs on houses that I have never noticed before and I gave and received as many smiles as I have in the past 11 months combined. I was resting in my true nature!! It was really nice. I eagerly look forward to next years retreat and will earnestly continue on with the progress I made this year. Namaste!
