Thank you so much for the absolutely wonderful Mindfulness retreat you led for us last month. It was absolutely beautiful, and so wonderfully done – with such thought and care – and it was so healing and powerful for me.
Thank you for sharing all of your gifts with us, and with the world – I left refreshed, inspired, and committed to being more mindful. For myself, and for the earth…

I wanted to drop you a line to say thank you to both you and Christophe so much for a wonderful yoga retreat over the New Year.It was better again (if that is possible) than last time…I think I am enjoying the yoga more as time goes on. Both classes each day were really insightful and rewarding.
Once again it was a very pleasant group – but most of all the welcome and warmth provided by you both, in the classes and the kitchen was second to none. Nutrition for body and soul.
It is a very special place….
