      "I had a great time in the retreat! Jessica hosted us with warm and good environment that propitiated a nice bond between us all. We had yoga classes in the morning and by the end of the evening everyday, which was great to start and finish our daytime. Jessica shared with us some of her knowledge and experiences and encouraged us to explore ourselves. The house is placed in a beautiful location in the mountains and has a good weather this time of year. In my case, since I love radical sports, I was thrilled to have the chance to get some adrenaline on waterfalls and repel rides."

      "I attended an 8-day yoga retreat in beautiful Buzios and Lumiar hosted by Jessica. It was one of my best experiences I have ever had. Jessica organized everything and her Ashtanga yoga introduction was really great. I met lovely people in gorgeous settings and lived in their nice pousadas. I very appreciated the personalized touch in the organization of the retreat and it was nice and relaxing. I did not have to worry about anything and letting my yoga teacher take care of me. I am definitely planning to come back and do another retreat with Jessica in the future! All the best and thanks for the great organization."

    • Review by Laura from USA

      "Brazil is spectacular and it is an absolute paradise. I also felt incredibly fortunate to be able to spend time in the rainforest and on the beach. You get the best of both worlds. I felt like I really experienced Brazil the way few tourists get to, it was really helpful to have a Portuguese speaker with us the whole time and a lot of attention was spent making this a truly memorable experience. If you would like to wake up to an amazing sunrise and sounds of nature and birds, hike in the rainforest and swim in spectacular waterfalls, enjoy healthy home-cooked meals, take a tour to the stunning beaches of Buzios, see rainbows and feel the gentle breeze coming through the studios windows during your yoga practice, then this is the retreat for you! I feel totally transformed, everyone deserves to give themselves this amazing gift. Brazil will have a piece of my heart and I hope to return to do another retreat soon!"

      "I was granted the opportunity to participate in a yoga retreat in beautiful Brazil. Sounds like a dream right? Well it was that and so much more. Not only did I get to explore that beautiful country, I was able to expand my yoga practice with people I truly adore and respect. I was challenged physically and mentally. I jumped down a waterfall and hiked to the top of a mountain, things I never thought I could achieve, but I was given a chance. Thanks to Jess and her wonderful team, I was blessed with those experiences and so much more. We ate great food, we laughed, we danced, we prayed, we loved. My retreat was life-changing. Namaste!"

      "Simplemente, perfecto! Lumiar es increíble. Pero quiero destacar a Jessica, que no solo es una excelente profesora, sino como ser humano es maravillosa. También Claudia, la profesora en Buzios, es muy, muy buena. Todo fue impecable: el alojamiento, la comida, el servicio, las excursiones. No tengo nada para decir en contra. Mi calificación es 10. Tengo planeado repetir la experiencia. Muchas gracias por todo!"
