    "Wendy Pabich is one of the rare speakers who is both scientist and artist. The artist side gives her the ability to connect with audiences of all knowledge levels without sacrificing scientific rigor. She is a wonderful speaker and can make water issues come alive."

    "I knew I would come into the weekend curious, a bit anxious, and mostly looking forward to what was in store. What I left with, at the end of three days of yoga, was a feeling of being refreshed, a trust that I could go back into the real world standing a bit taller in life, and lastly, a deep emotional healing. The retreat touched all my senses and emotions. Thank you, Mary Beth, for such a spiritual and inspirational weekend!"

The people who attended were such kind and supportive ladies, bonds were unavoidable. Una is light, patient, funny, and so full of spirit! If you are reading this, wondering if you should commit, dont waver! Do it! This is a gift to yourself that you will keep forever."

    "Una is an amazing facilitator, organizer and yoga instructor. She has a gift for partnering the perfect people for the perfect experience. Laura Dawn has an unparalleled understanding of how to and compliment flavors and textures. Her cuisine was the most beautiful food Ive had in a very long time. Autumn Skye, I am speechless. I have never been in the presence of a more beautiful, loving, compassionate and talented woman. I truly enjoyed the way she sees the world and her ability to translate it and communicate about it. Her voice, humor, grace and poise are an inspiration and I havent even gotten to her artistic skill yet. I arrived a beginner painter and in one week I feel that I have learned how to see the world with new eyes. Her instruction was concise and easy to understand and her command of the materials is awe inspiring. I am so grateful for the experience. It was well worth the fee. I hugely recommend this retreat and will be coming back next year. I loved everything!"

    "What an amazing opportunity. the whole self is nurtured through this retreat. Una and Laura assist with bringing the physical body into clarity and balance through yoga and fresh, live food. Assistance on the physical level really helped with my level of creativity and feeling good in my body. Autumn Skye is such a gem. her natural ability to support the paths of others is what makes her instruction really shine. Clear concise, instructions with a sense of humor really make learning from Skye such a pleasure. What a complete honor this retreat was for me. Mahalo nui loa."

    "Una, your art brought me to a place that I had been forbidden to go by other people's judgment of what I should be doing. Feeling the paint in between my fingers against the board, watching magic happen right before my eyes was such a powerful sensation that it still brings me to tears thinking about it. It unleashed so much that painting, especially with my hands, strongly calls to me and experiment without anyone's judgments. I just want to say that you've made a major difference in my world and pray that I may cross paths with you soon again."

Alicia, Una, and Imagika made an extremely potent team of visionaries with a unique and diverse array of offerings that nurture mind, body, and spirit simultaneously. I was humbled, encouraged, inspired, and uplifted with the powerful women that offered their heart and soul with genuine love. I look forward to returning to this retreat every year."

    "Thank you Unaji, for so kindly helping Judith and I navigate every step of the way through the logistics of our trip to the Goddess Gardens. We would have been lost without you! We were both impressed with your artistic and yoga teaching talents, probably for different reasons, but that just illustrates what an amazing person and teacher you are. Thank you again for presenting the best yoga retreat I have ever been on."

    "I so enjoyed this retreat! The chakras theme is clever as it lends itself to a day-by-day focus on each chakras. Katrina has a magnetic energy I was immediately drawn to - I probably do not fit the typical yogi mold but she was open and interested in my life. I so appreciate that she made a personal connection with all of us. I learned a great deal from her and now view yoga from a new lens, knowing it is not just about a mind, body connection, but also mind, body, and spirit. Despite the touch-and-go weather, she always had a great attitude. She also really cared about whether we were enjoying ourselves and if we wanted to do any side activities, or change up the schedule. Thank you so much for a great week! Please let me know of any other retreats on the horizon!"

    "When I arrived at Mag Rock and first headed down the stone steps to the ocean I felt completely off balance. By the end of the week, I was running up and down them barefoot two at a time, feeling totally grounded, yet light on my toes. I've never felt stronger or healthier in my life after these seven amazing days! It is nice to go on a vacation with a group of friends, but going on a retreat with Lindsay and Una was a completely different and life changing experience."

    "I appreciate and adore Katie’s ability to translate and provide the teachings of Tantra in an accessible and digestible way. I have been studying this material for two years and sitting and practicing with Katie for one week literally brought the teachings to life. I not only learn in a way that seeps into my pores but I experience the teachings when with her in a way that is powerful and impactful."

    "Training with Katie has allowed me to be more mindful. She has given me real tools to work with on all levels, to really peel through the subtle layers to be the most grounded and authentically happy person that I can be. Through diet, asana, pranayama, mantra, meditation, and helping to identify what holds me back and helping me break old patterns, Katie has provided a clarity and a sense of empowerment."
