"Best yoga retreat experience "

This was an amazing opportunity. I felt so blessed to be in such a caring, friendly, non-judging, safe and supportive environment. I had the chance to really go within, learn and grow during these 5 days. Everything was planned absolutely perfectly around the chakra theme and gave me lots of healthy food for thought back in my day to day reality of life. Exactly what I needed to reboot and refresh! Would definitely recommend a retreat with Janet and Alida!

Janet and Alida welcomed us into our home away from home with warmth and love. They made us feel special and nurtured and catered to our every need and more. The careful planning and attention to detail of every activity and delicious healthy meal was exceptional. I highly recommend these two special women when you need to embrace your inner warrior or learn to love yourself again. Thank you, thank you.

Janet and Alida really created a little paradise in a beautiful setting. Both Ladies have such a positive "feel good" energy that makes you feel valued and appreciated from the first contact. For a long weekend I felt like in a healing bubble, just re-charging on positive energy, love and understanding. I cannot express how grateful I am about that experience and I will certainly sign up for the next retreat!

The work done by Alida, Janet and Suzette is amazing. I recommend it to anyone who really wants to make massive strides in their personal lives, who feels stuck and needs a serious boost and refocus. The experience is truly unique and transformational. It opened me up to things I did not know about myself. I left with a completely different way of seeing things, inspired and motivated! This is worth the investment in oneself times ten! It is seldom that I meet someone who has a message so profound and life-changing. I felt a cold chill in my body for most of the event, and left inspired and with a deep desire to truly make a difference to my life and everything around me. Thank you so much!!!

This retreat was well planned and in even the smallest detail it was a perfectly fitted puzzle to what I needed (and did not even know I needed). I feel like I have come out as a better more grounded and enlightened soul. Words wont do justice to the entire experience. Janet, Alida and Suzette you are incredibly gifted and special people. The universe is definitely better off with you beautiful ladies in it. Thank you for following your calling - love and light to you guys and the rest of the group that shared the experience!

Driving home after every retreat, I turn my music up loud, open the windows wide and I sing my heart song with a smile on my face. A great sense of peace washes over me, my mind is quiet but my heart is alive. I feel in tune with my soul once again and the path ahead seems to have cleared. I always feel very blessed to have the opportunity to attend these retreats as they are indeed ‘treats’ ,a mini self-reflective holiday that provides food for the soul, body and mind. The realizations and understanding of myself as well as others is where the real ‘treat’ lies. I am constantly reminded that we are all one experiencing similar hardships and excitement at exactly the same time. These retreats remind me that we are never alone in this crazy world but so deeply connected to the earth, to others and to ourselves if we only take the time to get away and connect. My life is never the same once I get in my car to drive home and for that I am bursting with gratitude and love for Alida and Janet
