If you should need a specialized care in a dire emergency, you would need to be evacuated to Singapore.

    "Going on this retreat was the best decision I ever made. I am fairly new to Restorative yoga, and really enjoyed opening my mind to this style of teaching. I enjoyed the themes each day, and starting the morning with a mediation. I felt like the schedule allowed me to have a variety of activities. Anne was amazing. She has so much compassion, love and a cheerful enjoyment of life. She is a genuine person and that really shows through her practice. "
