“Janet creates such a wonderful space to let go of regular life and relax into your practice. It was such a luxury to get to practice yoga three times a day at a beautiful retreat resort, in a tropical environment surrounded by like-minded people. Add in a splash of tropical drinks, healthy delicious food, and good conversation and it took the typical beach vacation to a whole other level (with plenty of beach time too). I was able to conquer new poses that I never would have normally attempted and came back with a new appreciation for the challenges and clarity that yoga provides me. I describe the yoga retreat as “fancy summer camp for grown ups” with fast friends, meal times, and lots of optional activities. It was truly an amazing experience!” –Rosey, Vancouver
“It was a pleasure to have been part of your Yoga Retreat. You and Catherine did a wonderful job (from planning to execution) and made me realize I could participate in most poses despite my limitations. We really had a great group of yogis and I loved the synergy of our group. I loved the setting–it was really spectacular and first class. Thank you for your individualized attention and for your positive creative energy. I look forward to your future retreats.” –Erika, Calgary
