      Sicily MAy 2019

    I went on the Sicily yoga retreat a week or so ago and I was supremely disappointed. First off, they sent out the wrong dates. I had booked about 9 moths in advance - that is simply unacceptable for an international trip. Luckily, my hotels at the beginning were refundable and my flight from NYC was early enough that no big calamity happened, other than me having to waste my time rebooking flights - which, they initially said that they would reimburse. When I tried to get details and compensation, Ben didn't return my call and my emails were not answered. They finally said that they would pay for my additional night in Sicily before the retreat, and lo and behold, when I went to check out, they had not paid nor made any arrangements. What kind of crap is that? At the retreat, the yoga was barely there and the classes were cancelled a lot. They had a women's only morning class that excluded the 2 guys there - totally unnecessary and kind of horrific. They said that there would be a men's only class, but that didn't happen. The teacher, Kate van Horn, was not good and did not have a presence whatsoever. These were some of the worst yoga classes that I have ever taken. She tried to incorporate some of Taryn Toomey's moves as well - and did that very poorly. This retreat was a colossal waste of time and money. I would not recommend this to anyone. The company is inept and horrific. Don't be fooled by their slick promotions. The only way that I was able to recoup anything was because I still owed them half the fees and they just discounted that. Most people did not get anything back. They promised to repay folks for the changes, but they did not. TERRIBLE COMPANY!

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After participating in more yoga classes and events this year than in my entire life, I am yearning for the opportunity to attend a professional retreat. The opportunity to grow my practice, learn from talented students and teachers, and immerse myself in this gorgeous Red Feather Lakes sanctuary is the dream of a lifetime! Sara
