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
"Thank you for this amazing experience! To be with these beautiful women (both physically and spiritually) if very powerful. To be able to take the time to truly listen to ones inner self in such a safe environment is priceless and for this I am filled with gratitude. My job is to carry my immense sense of gratitude forward with me everyday and to spread my gratitude just as the swan moves forward on the lake and you see the ripple effect of the water spreading behind him. I am truly grateful. Thank you" - April 2018
