Testimonial from prior retreat:

“Was such a great day! Bec and Brett created a perfectly balanced combination of an energetic walk in a beautiful location, with a yoga practice under a tree canopy and a meditation. There is something quite special about yoga under tall trees with a bird song soundtrack. The yoga nidra, gratefully appreciated after the walk, giving us a chance to appreciate and connect with nature in a unique, peaceful way. A great concept that we are lucky to have offered. And a chance to meet some lovely like-minded souls. Will be at the next one!” – Charlotte Aberhart
