I have never done a retreat in my life. At 46, I’ve traveled all over the world for site seeing, relaxing, and typical tourist travel. I reached
a point in my life where I needed to escape from work and stress and just have some me time. I was a little hesitate to do this retreat coming from Los Angeles and working in a fast paced career as a first responder. But after I arrived and was greated by Anjay and Vida and saw my open air room, I realized I was in for an experience. Anjay, Anne, Vida, the ladies in the kitchen, Carlos the groundskeeper were all really nice and accommodating.
Daily yoga, breAthwork, meals together, sharing our stories (if we chose) hiking, kayaking, boating, walks in nature and along the ocean, swimming in the ocean. It was great. I loved that there was a schedule, but there was also time to be alone and explore the area as freely as you wanted. I enjoyed it so much that I booked and paid for another trip in February 2019.
The kitchen and food were prepared fresh daily and the kitchen is accommodating to your dietary needs. The staff doesn’t get all over you and allows you to have your own time to relax, mediate, fellowship or be alone. I really enjoyed the people that were also on the retreat. It was a great mix of people and personalities but we all got along well. After this experience my future vacations will be more geared toward my wellness. I’m so excited to return. I took a lot away from this experience and hope that I can incorporate some of it in my everyday life.
