"Okay if you want a prescriptive program"
Great location and amenities. The food was terrific. No snacking between meals though which was tough.

"Hit the reset-button"
Everything! I booked the retreat to carry me over the holidays, and do some yoga. I got so much more out of it though. What a wonderful way to hit that reset-button, and to start the new year all refreshed, nourished and energized.
- Yoga: Wendy is an awesome and obviously very experienced teacher, who really pays attention to where you are at and what you are capable of - and stretching (ha!) that as much as she thinks you can handle. It's remarkable to see the progress after only 6 days!
- Food: the food is absolutely fantastic, tasty and satiating. Wendy is passionate about sharing her knowledge and experience of raw-food, which is very inspiring.
- Hiking: the house is located in the middle of the cloud forest, and the daily hikes in the forest are stunningly beautiful. I enjoyed them so very much, on several levels: enjoying the fresh air, the stunning views, the wonderful nature and animals.
- House: the house is wonderful, clean and 'homey'. It's so nice to curl up on a chair with a good book and a cup of tea, while enjoying the views of the forest, looking at butterflies and (humming)birds.
For me this week was perfect to get some (in my opinion well-deserved) R&R, and Wendy is there to take care of everything. You take out of your stay what you put in: I am well rested, nourished and feel ready to continue this healthy living in a sustainable way.
