"Loved every moment - wonderful experience "
The instructors were really great, with a breadth of knowledge and experience they created a beautiful space for learning, inquiry and a deepening of yoga (practice and thought). A great mix of mediation, yoga asana and yoga talks. The space was beautiful tucked away, surrounded by beautiful jungle and song birds, and a beautiful pool to cool off in after the asana practices. The food was absolutely delicious. A great few days with great people.

"Simply perfect! "
Thank you so much for this splendid retreat RETURN TO THE SOURCE!!!
I found this opportunity on your FB page and I decided to take a chance and fly from Montreal to Chiang Mai and join your group. It was the best idea and sweep of faith i could ever have taken. Not only are the teachers dedicated to your physical experience but also very much available for your comprehension of yoga and its understanding.
I am very new at practicing Yoga and even if I was by far the most beginner of the group, all the participants and the teachers made me feel like I belonged there.
Great organisation! Great people! Great knowledge!!! I recommend this retreat to everyone.
