I am in my 30’s and when you think of what to do over a weekend, there is plenty to do but doing a yoga retreat is a good self-care program. I do not see men my age in my class, primarily they think it’s not cool. Doing yoga is cool and will add more energy to do more cool stuff! Give it a try! — Pat Chandran
Joint Pain from impact sports and muscle fatigue from standing long hours at work kept me from enjoying yoga. This class educated and helped me with stretching to prepare me for comfortable yoga practices. — Mary Beth Sanders
Raam is very knowledgeable and shares it in a very relatable way. He was so clear and happy to re-explain whenever needed. The entire weekend flowed really nicely. The kindness and supportive vibe made all feel welcome. I (as a teacher myself) loved seeing the staff jump in to help make the poses accessible to all. — Past Participant
