What can I say? Heartwood Health & Yoga surpassed all my expectations. Although, I really didn’t know what I was in for when I got there. I believe there are no coincidences in life, and I found this place at exactly the right time in my life. I spent a weekend there with Ken, Christina and my new Georgia family. But, besides my new family, I found the medicine that I needed without knowing. This retreat is like a healthy youthful elixir. It’s the best place where you can find healing inside and out. Christina and Jerry’s massages were truly therapeutic and amazing and everyone’s recipes were healing and delicious. Ken’s smile is truly unforgettable. It’s the perfect welcoming smile. I also loved Lynn’s beautiful energy. When I come back, I will surely take your sculpting class. Thanks again. I love you guys! – Sandra Miranda The Style Lounge, Puerto Rico “Heartwood” was a gem of a find. As a busy Massage Therapist it is extremely important for me to stay connected, grounded and balanced.
