About us

Well, it all started when I developed a very strong case of Meniere’s disease ( an inner ear disease that is much like vertigo but worse). After months and months of seeing the specialist and trying some of the exercises that he provided me to try to get my balance back I was finding nothing was helping…. I was off caffeine, salt and trying every exercise provided by him and nothing was changing and the disease seemed to take a stronger toll on me, the more stress I had, the worse it was as well. There came a point when I wanted to just die and maybe that would be better than living my life with this terrible disease. Then I decided to try yoga, at first I felt it was making things worse and that’s when I almost quit. My specialist encouraged me to stick with it for a little while to see if anything would change. Well, boy did it ever…..I am so happy that he encouraged me to stick to it. After a couple of months I stared to notice that my balance was coming back……and after 4 months, I never had one trace of my disease…

Why Retreat?

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

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica
