    "I had the most wonderful time this week at Learning Circles Yoga Retreat! Julie our host and yoga instructor is friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. The luxury coastal Hamptons Style accommodation, freshly prepared vegetarian meals, healthy snacks, three yoga classes a day plus workshops is quality and value for money second to none. I went to bed every night listening to the waves before falling into a blissful sleep. I look forward to my next retreat with Julie.", edited

    "Thanks Julie for a wonderful retreat. One hour is good for me for a class time and your gentle manner and helpfulness really appreciated. The Patonga House is ideal and we had some good sunrise walks each morning. The whistling kites were a great welcome in the high trees, later we saw their nests."

    "Thank you for a great retreat. Good food and company a gentle nurturing approach to yoga that also allows so much space for learning new things. The sesame oil self massage was a great experience and savasana on a bolster was also a revelation. I hope we can come again."

    "Thank you so much for this opportunity for a delightful reprieve. The workshops and yoga/meditation sessions were perfectly spaced; the venue delightful too. It was a pleasure to have your gentle guidance and I especially appreciated the effort you went to around lymphatic drainage. Lovely to meet the other participants too. Very much looking forward to a repeat. Please keep on keeping going. Namaste! ."
