"Great unique place "

SAYF will have an impact on you in days - you can do as little or as much as you want - well thought out delicious vegan food - survived decades on volunteers - that says something right there - it's a spiritual community - easy for beginner, great for those wishing to extend their practice , classes in yoga, breathing, meditation, chanting and lectures everyday , loved my cabin, llamas and goats wandering around, super relaxing and healthy, seems a bargain for what they offer, all instructors, leaders emanated what they preached devoid of judgement or ego, outstanding 3 days, it's unpretentious and draws people from all over the world, I can't imagine you would soon forget your time there whether days or months

"Stress Management Retreat"

This retreat was absolutely fantastic!

The facilities - truly beautiful, grounded in nature; the teachers, best in the world, gifted and talented; the program - comprehensive, taught from a very positive approach (considering the negative topic) the food - delicious, michelin star quality.

As a practitioner of yoga for 18 years, this retreat was by far the best yoga experience of my life! Highly recommend

"Overview of retreat"

When I first arrived, I was nicely welcomed in the office, which I appreciated. I enjoyed the food as well. I also liked the peace and quiet that the Ashram provided for the weekend.

I appreciate the gentle yoga because I receive more direction to pay attention to what I am capable of doing, being gentle with myself, I learn alternative ways of doing each asana or stretch offered and feel more of a sense of community in the gentle class environment.

I have been doing gentle yoga for two years now. Six months after my failed back surgery, I was in worse pain than before. I started going to gentle yoga classes one day a week and now go three times a week. The benefits are many. The less vigorous class with modified poses in gentle yoga enable me to carry out most of the poses with ease. It has taught me balance, relaxation and meditation and improved my memory and concentration. Learning how to relax through breathing exercises has taught me to fall back to sleep whenever I wake up in the middle of the night and to get rid of headaches. It is amazing how the power of gentle yoga has enabled me to do the things I love to do, without which I would have been afraid to do because of my chronic pain.

At 72, I strive to age competently. A major practice to that end is gentle yoga-for strength, flexibility and relaxation three essentials to ensure my lifes continuing high quality. Asana modifications, based on individual students' limitations, are demonstrated, supervised and encouraged. Without this feature, given my age and condition, I would not be able to experience the benefits of yoga.
