Yoga retreats abroad

Yoga retreat is a gentle yet deep dive into the Self. Join me to explore your depths with the tools of somatic movement, yoga, meditation & writing – taking distance from our every day life can be an eye (and heart!) opening experience. No need for previous experience in yoga or meditation – come as you are.
