Illustration Of An Envelope With A Picture
from United States,December 2019
The hotel/spa was nice, quiet and the staff there was very friendly. The hotel provide breakfast which was amazing and the yoga retreat provided lunch and dinner . The two waiters were delightful young men and attentive. That was the best part of the “retreat” if you can call it that. But I will get to that in a minute. The food provided by the yoga studio was good, healthy, and while I was provided with options at the very beginning of my visit, I would have liked to have had those options at the beginning of every day. The instructor for the vinyasa style yoga was kind and knowledgeable. Unfortunately I did not get his name as I only took two classes from him. But that is where the positive remarks end. I cannot in good conscience recommend this retreat in this location to people until changes are made as it was a disaster and not worth the money spent.

Since 2001 I was involved in yoga & meditation programs offered by Art of Living Foundation I learned their techniques and became an AOL teacher in 2005.

We are located near USC and many students visit us to relax and unwind.
My yoga journey started in 1998 when I took my first yoga class at the only yoga studio in Poland at that time! I fall in love immediately. Since then yoga was always part of my life. Especially when I started to develop some heathy issues, yoga and my plant-based diet really saved me.
Today I know how a healthy diet, yoga & meditation can totally change the quality of our lives. As a former fashion model & basketball player, I was always into health & fitness, now I can share my experience with others through my yoga classes, Art of Living Happiness Program & plant-based recipes.
Has it been a smooth road?Only struggles were when I was diagnosed with RA, I couldnt believe how healthy, yoga person can get any illness.
