Carol was the perfect leader for this journey, calm, peaceful and tolerant but strong in her leadership and direction. Thank you Carol!" - Peter Simpson, Retreat participant

"I came on my first yoga retreat not knowing what to expect, but with an open mind. Carol structured a wonderful programme for us, that gave me an overview of the chakras, introduced me to meditation and gave me tools to continue on my yoga journey. The practice was slow and mindful and beautifully fulfilling. The setting was idyllic, with the cool breeze through the room and the outdoor sounds grounding you in Bali life. I would highly recommend this retreat to beginners and veterans alike, a very special week, time out to re-centre and re-prioritise. Namaste." - Rosemary Nolan, Retreat participant
