Yoga Retreats

Why go on a yoga retreat?

A yoga retreat is a gift to yourself. It’s the chance to disconnect, take a break from the stresses of daily life and nourish your body, mind and soul.

Escape your everyday routine, expand your yoga practice and return home, rested and refreshed. And you don’t need to be an expert yogi to go on a yoga retreat—all you need is the desire to relax, slow down and notice the beauty that surrounds you. (Also see “Make Your Home An Ashram—how to create a retreat at home.)

“I rave about my yoga retreat, as it did me such a world of relaxation and a different way to approach everyday life, especially with my stressful job. I practice my breathing in situations, and I even coach some of my fellow workers and their stress now.  Take care, and thx you and Karen for opening this world up to me  🙂 ” — Deb L.

“The retreat is a life-changer, hard to describe in words especially to an outsider but it calls for us to stop, see, feel and hear who we are and appreciate the environment around us.  I give it a 10 ++++.  Villa Sumaya was a wonderful, peaceful retreat, a perfect setting to create that mood.  I enjoyed everyone also, bonding easily with like-minded people.  You and Karen gave soooo much of yourselves. Thank you.” — Hedy S.

“It was an amazing experience that I cannot explain to anyone. I feel so at peace. I really miss you and my new yogi friends. Friends that I know I will have for a long time. I can’t stop thinking about this trip and all the memories and all the special people. Namaste.” — Jojo F.

“What an adventure, many happy memories and life changes. Julie and Karen, thanks to you for creating such an amazing experience — like Jojo, I often come back to the memories with a smile. Each of you is remarkable and together you are magic. Namaste’.” — Ruth M.
