What People Say About This Retreat
I loved the personal time for me, to really go deeper into things & thoughts as our lives are so busy, you don’t have this luxury usually. I really loved the yin yoga which I hadn’t tried before, I found that very insightful & beneficial. I loved my massage with Sophie & have made a future appointment with her which I am so looking forward to. I liked talking about the teas & being shown how easy it was to prepare these for myself at home afterwards! I liked talking about & looking at different ways to manage stress, these tools will be well used.
