“AMAZING!!!! I cannot say enough about this experience. First, let’s start with the two wonderful organizers and incredible yoga instructors. Angela and Yuval brought so much love, experience and warmth to this retreat. They each taught with a different style and both were equally amazing! They were so helpful in really paying attention to each yogi in the room and helping to make their practice better. I really looked forward to each morning and evening practice every day! The group that came together was truly an amazing and inspiring group. We enjoyed each other’s company all week long, laughed a lot, had great discussions and supported one another during our practice each day. I cannot wait to do another retreat with the two most incredible yogis, Angela and Yuval”! ~ Jeannine, San Francisco
