This was my first retreat but not the last! I signed up last minute and it was so great escaping from everyday life, chores and stress. I enjoyed the group of women, the amazing food and especially being outside - connected to nature-all day. Absolutely amazing!
Mel I am so happy you made the time for yourself. Sometimes those last minute moves are the best. Looking forward to lots of more amazing moments together!
The retreat was beautiful, very grounding and relaxing. The surroundings were lush green, quiet and with the birds singing, you really have time to experience nature as part of the activities. Francesca’s guidance is truly wonderful whether you are a beginner or advanced, all the activities were well designed and one of the best things was the amazing lunch - you could feel the healing power of food! Highly recommend
Alina I am so happy you were able to make this retreat day. Isn't it amazing what a short trip outside of the city can do for the soul. I do hope that we will see more of eachother. You were a beautiful addition to the group. I love how new and former clients bond so easily in my offerings. Hugs until the next time.
This was my third retreat with Francesca. Each time has been unique. I love the yoga, meditations, food, people, special treats, and products offered. It is also great to be outdoors in nature.
Noelyn, I am so happy to have you back for events and to have been part of your life for so many years. You always bring so much joy to each event, class & moments all around!
This was my first time going to a yoga retreat and I highly recommend! It was a great group of people, and a joyful day. Looking forward to attending another retreat.
Allie it was so lovely to meet you! I sure am glad you trusted your intution and came out for a day long event! I look forward to getting to know you better and sharing more offerings with you.
I recently participated in a 3 day, 2-night yoga retreat with Francesca. It was set in a beautiful countryside home with a large property. Classes took place outside where the horses and cats on the property could be seen and heard. Additionally, I had no idea vegan food could taste so good although, a dairy and meat option was available. As well, there was a cooking demonstration, treatment options, a miniature marketplace, free time for hikes, reading, sunbathing, or whatever you desired. It was a perfect summer treat.
Christina sharing this retreat with you was just a joy! You have been a part of my offering for so ,many years and I cannot thank you enough for trusting me to hold space for you on your journey of yoga & wellness. I love how our friendship has also evovled. Looking forward to attending the retreat you are offering this fall!
