Testimonial Quote Wow I am totally blown away by this amazing place. The yoga retreat was incredible, Logan and Emma are fantastic facilitators and the program was really immersive. The grounds are stunning, we spent time meditating down by the creek which was just magic. The facilities were wonderful too, I loved the new cedar hot tub and sauna. And the food was absolutely delicious! Leaving the retreat feeling energized, refreshed and so grateful for a wonderful few days. Can’t wait to return again Testimonial Quote
