What people are saying about our Women's retreats
"Whenever anyone told me to use my breath, to breathe into my stomach and diaphragm, I just didn’t get it... until I went to Emma and Sarsha’s 4-day retreat in Glenorchy. Through Sarsha’s gentle yoga and pilates yin practices and Emma’s practical yang tips, I now have the strategies to reel myself back into calmer waters. This has had a major impact on the quality of my life. Thank you." Kaye Mueller - May 2019
