I am eternally grateful to you for introducing me to qi gong. Truly, it has changed my life. My qi gong practice is helping me to get through some really tough times right now….
Woke up this morning grateful for all you have taught me…There is so much to notice and learn through the lens of Ayurveda, and of course, put into practice. Thank you for being a gifted practitioner and teacher.
Thank you so very much for your wonderful spirit, kindness support and amazing Ayurvedic meetings.
I am feeling great, lost about 7 pounds now and feeling pretty good. I even did three short guided meditations this week! Thank you so much for making a positive influence on my life. I am really lucky and very appreciative.
This retreat inspired me in so many ways. Since returning home I have started a regular yoga practice and am taking better care of myself. This was my first yoga retreat so I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I had such a positive experience, that I want to attend more. The addition of Qi Gong was icing on the cake. Annie and Holly are wonderful instructors and fabulous retreat leaders. They were well-prepared and had a meaningful theme with handouts for each day. They were available, caring, knowledgeable and fun to be with. I have no doubt that any retreat they plan together will be fabulous.
I can’t rave enough about my experience in Costa Rica with Annie and Holly. Hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, yoga and Qi Gong all in one week was idyllic for me. Activities and classes were thoughtfully planned, and I wanted for nothing while on the retreat. I was able to completely relax, and take in all the wonderful nature that surrounded us. It was truly spectacular. No matter your yoga ability or experience, the retreat provided a number of offerings to be enjoyed by all!
Thank you Annie and Holly for the amount of countless hours and effort you spent on planning and making this retreat a magical and thoughtful experience for all of us. I arrived at this retreat with a fractured heart and left with a fuller heart and a feeling of joy that I have not had for a while. The love and acceptance I felt from both of you and the other yogi’s I had the honor of meeting, infused me with gratefulness, heart strength, relational connection and a sense of peace. I have been working on being/staying present, vulnerable and this experience launched me into submersion. I am reminded daily by seeing our pictures and getting the notes/messages from the others that I can integrate what I learned into my daily life and just how blessed I am to have had this experience. Here are a couple of examples among many: I remember at one of our morning Yoga sessions where Annie read about being our authentic selves and it brought me to tears. It touched me at a deep level and the way she read it was truly meaningful to me, thank you my dear sweet Annie. And the joy, connection and acceptance I felt when doing activities with Holly were so uplifting and heart warming. I love you both and hold you dear in my heart.
