Testimonials

The Costa Rica retreat in April was such a great trip I can’t wait for the next one. The secluded resort was surrounded by lush jungle and was so close to the beach. The tranquil setting was just the reset I needed. Every morning the sunrise was breathtaking. As we worked together each day, we bonded into a kind of little tribe. Every day was different with a variety of yoga sessions punctuated with activities like surfing, horseback riding, hiking, and spa treatments. One of the most amazing things was the variety of animals we were deluged with. So cool! The staff at the retreat center were very accommodating and kind. Jessica orchestrated such a wonderful retreat and as I stated earlier, I can’t wait for the next one.” – Greg S.

“I have been practicing yoga with Jessica for ten years, the only thing I can imagine making practicing with her better, is practicing with her on vacation.” – Hannah B.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time last week.  I forget how much I appreciate being around those who are open minded about life in general and willing to share their take on things and hear someone else’s without offense or defense.   Jessica’s energy is palpable which is such a joy in a yoga space.  Everyone is at ease around Her. It was a deeply needed week of peace and reflection for me.”– Catherine
