Vytas Baskauskas

Ever since he can remember, he has been on the search for more, for something greater. Growing up in Los Angeles, he never truly felt comfortable in my own skin. Through many years of struggling with heroin addiction and living on the streets, he had finally landed himself in jail. After a year of serving time in one of Los Angeles’ finest institutions, he came out on the other side without a clue on how to live his life.

Luckily, a friend brought him to Bryan Kest’s class because he was complaining of back pain. At first, the practice just spoke to his physical nature; his back felt great, his body became strong and agile but after awhile, he found lessons that could permeate his entire life. He learned that he doesn’t have to beat the crap out of himself physically or mentally to do yoga properly. In fact, there is no one way to do yoga properly. He didn’t have to compete, judge, react, or generate any sort of negativity. All that is required from him is that he breathes deep, remain calm and listen to the teacher within myself. Yoga taught him simple yet utterly profound ways to lead his life on and, most importantly, off the mat. A little bit of self study and discipline with his yoga practice has catapulted him into a life that is beyond his wildest dreams.

Now,he teaches yoga every day at Power Yoga in Santa Monica, California. Yoga is meditation in motion. It is a tool to find peace. By practicing regularly, he is more effective on his life. Sharing this gift with others through teaching for the last 7 years has been an honor for him. He always look forward to walking into the yoga room and facilitating a healing experience for all in attendance. From years of observing thousands of people practicing, he have realized that those who continue are the ones who develop a sweet and enjoyable practice. They look forward to their yoga and have no problem making the time to do it. It becomes one of the most important and special parts of their day. The others, consciously, subconsciously, or unconsciously, quit practicing. It is his goal to do everything that he can to inspire you to establish your yoga practice not just for the time that you will spend together, but for the rest of your life.

Though only 15 minutes from the outskirts of Cabo San Lucas, the location of Prana del Mar feels remote and private. Once you’re here, it will seem that you’re a world away from civilization. With the Sierra de la Laguna mountains as the backdrop to the east, the endless expanse of the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the rugged desert all around, a feeling of serenity and tranquility permeates the valley.

At the front of the property, you’ll find a stunning, golden sand beach. Stroll the water’s edge at sunrise or sunset and you may see a few local fisherman casting their lines. But it’s just as likely you’ll have the whole mile-and-half stretch all to yourself. Climb up and over the rocky outcroppings at either end and the shoreline continues as far as your legs will carry you. This immersion in the beauty of your surroundings while on yoga retreat here in Baja will leave you feeling calm, relaxed, and connected - to both the outer world and your own inner landscape.

Prana del Mar is unrivaled in their cuisine, service and totally blissed out location. Three gourmet meals will be served daily. Teas, juices and water are also included.

The days are yours to explore the beach, swim, enjoy your massage or to book one of the optional excursions as listed below. Excursions and spa services can be arranged by the retreat center at no additional charge. Yoga is always optional and at your discretion.

Book a Shuttle to Todos Santos, Cabo San Lucas or San Jose

This is a private car or van service that is requested through the company that handles the airport shuttles. The professional driver will pick you up here, drop you off at a convenient location, and wait for you for up to 5 hours while you explore, shop, have a meal, etc.

Choose from round trip transport in either a Suburban (up to 6 passengers) or a van (up to 10 passengers) to Cerritos Beach, Todos Santos, or Cabo for 140 to 170 USD with an additional amount of gratuity. For trips to San Jose, the cost is from 175 to 195 USD with gratuity. The more people who go, the cheaper per person. This can only be paid by cash.

Cooking class

Price: 35 USD per person.

Minimum of 2 persons.

Chef Manolo offers an introductory cooking class that will teach you some tips and techniques for preparing a couple of his favorite recipes with a Mexican twist. Classes are offered late morning, prior to lunch, and include some discussion and hands-on preparation. Best of all, you get to eat the results!

Cliff hike

Price: 70 USD per person, cash only

Minimum of four persons.

This guided cliff hike is moderately strenuous, starting at Punta Lobos - about 40 minutes north toward Todos Santos. There is hiking and scrambling that brings you to breathtaking views of a different kind of coastline, with dramatic rocky outcroppings and crashing surf. Your knowledgeable guide will offer in-depth commentary on the variety of flora and fauna you’ll see, as well as, the history of the area from the human perspective. This includes round trip transport and a picnic lunch.

Fire dancing class

Price: 20 USD per person, cash only.

Minimum of 2 persons.

Mariana offers an introduction to the Maori art of fire dancing with poi. While poi are normally set aflame, you will start out with your own set of (non-flaming) tethered tennis balls to keep you safe. Class will last approximately 45 minutes and you get to keep your tennis balls to continue to practice at home.

Horseback riding

Price: 75 USD per person.

A beautiful and peaceful excursion, this is a great way to get to know the beach and the surrounding area. This excursion starts at a small nearby ranch just down the beach. After a short explanation describing how to ride your horse, your guide will lead you along the beach and the neighboring areas. Before returning, you’ll take a break for a small snack, and some extra time to contemplate the beauty of the mighty Pacific. The tour lasts for about 1 and a half hour to 2 hours and you will be picked up right at the beach gate.

Snorkeling near the Cabo Arch

Price: 64 USD per person.

Minimum of 4 persons.

This is a great excursion right in the Cabo bay. It starts with a short boat ride to see the famous arch of Cabo San Lucas and the resident sea lion colony, along with a brief explanation of the bay’s history and legends. The boat then takes you to a beach where your guide will equip you with all the gear you need and lead you into the water to explore the undersea world. A beach blanket awaits you after snorkeling, so you can relax on the golden sand, soak up the sun, and enjoy your box lunch. This includes box lunch and round-trip transport.

Surf lessons

Price: 80 USD per person, cash only.

Minimum of 2 persons.

Mario and his enthusiastic, helpful staff will get you riding waves in no time! This one-hour lesson takes place at Cerritos Beach, one of the only safe swimming beaches on the Pacific coast of southern Baja. It’s a wonderful introduction to surfing - a great way to experience the thrill of riding a wave and to feel the power of the ocean. They also provide beach chairs and blankets for relaxing afterward. This includes round-trip transport.

Whale watching

Season: late December through March.

Price: 64 USD per person.

Minimum of 4 persons.

Getting out on the water to watch the whales can be a truly unforgettable experience. You have the chance to see spouts, flukes, and perhaps even a full breach! The excursion starts from the Cabo marina and heads out beyond the bay on a one and a half hour to two hours search for whales. It’s not guaranteed that you will definitely see whales, but the odds are excellent that you will. On the way back, you will pass by the world famous Cabo Arch and see the local sea lion colony who lives there. This includes round-trip transport.

    "Honestly, I went on a retreat last year that I thought was the best trip ever I had taken for myself. Then this trip blew the last one out of the water. It was the people... I met such wonderful new friends and then Gia, who was just amazing. And the location was gorgeous, with abundant nature and adventure around every corner. This trip fulfilled all my desires - spiritual exploration, sense of community, adventure, beauty, relaxation, physical wellness and more. This trip was one I'll always remember, one that left me richer in spirit, mind, body and heart. Thank you!"

    "Bhutan was beyond amazing, it's beauty can't be imagined. This is my fourth trip with Travel Yogi; Galapagos with Liz Arch, Iceland with Elizabeth Rowan, Kenya with Liz Arch and now Bhutan with Erica Jung. Travel Yogi is easy to deal with and I trust that the accommodations will always be top notch, I haven't been disappointed yet. The yoga is always equally spectacular as well, I enjoy getting personal instruction from A-list instructors. They have all been a treat. I can't think of a better way to see the world and havemade great friends on every trip. I can't wait to start planning my next adventure to Vietnam and Cambodia! My wife and I love The Travel Yogi!"

    "The Blissful Bergerac eight-day yoga retreat was an overall wonderful experience. Our yoga instructor Debbi Murphy provided excellent sessions tailored to the group's levels, and we learned a lot from her through insights and stories about yoga and its many physiological and spiritual aspects. The chateau provided a perfect setting with plenty of space for solo time but intimate dining and common areas for socializing with the group. The food was hearty and healthy, and the staff was accommodating and friendly. The multiple excursions, from the local market trip to the castle tour to the vineyard tasting, were well organized and interesting. I would recommend this retreat, or one structured in a similar manner, to anyone looking for a true getaway. Regards."

The Travel Yogi has always done an incredible job in packaging the tours I have so far enjoyed. Yes, I will be looking at their other offered destinations."

    "I have led five retreats now with The Travel Yogi and I keep coming back for more! Not only do they curate amazing trips, they are extremely professional, pay attention to the smallest details, and truly go above and beyond in every way to create incredibly unique experiences and memories that last a lifetime. In March, I partnered with the Travel Yogi to lead a 10-day yoga and safari retreat to Kenya, and words alone can't do the trip justice. Our adventure literally began right when we touched down in Nairobi. We had group transportation and a guide waiting for us in the airport and within 10 minutes of leaving the airport, I had already spotted my first wild giraffe on the ride to Emakoko Lodge. The beautiful ride to the lodge was through a nature conservancy, where we also got up and close and personal with a lion, zebras, a hippo, rhinos, and gazelles. And it was just the first day! I thought that would be hard to top, but each day only got better. The accommodations were top notch, the food was incredible, the guides were so knowledgable and friendly, the game drives were out of this world, and we got to do yoga in some of the most stunning natural settings on the planet. The Travel Yogi is bar none the best in the business!"

    "Jen and Courtney made booking my trip so easy. They were so helpful, answering all my questions and making sure I understood everything and was well-informed. The Travel Yogi staff is amazing! The sailing excursion was the best. The staff at Santorini Sailing were so wonderful. They definitely showed us a good time, fed us well and made sure we were comfortable and safe. It was so great. Elizabeth's attention to your needs and concerns about your yoga practice is a 10 on a scale of 1-10. She is open to teaching you new things and is very helpful for helping you at whatever yoga practice level you are on. She is fantastic! I enjoyed the whole experience. With this being my first trip internationally and my first yoga retreat, I was so blown away by Elizabeth and her knowledge, the amazing ladies on the trip and how easy Jen and Courtney made everything! Please keep being your amazing, wonderful selves! If I can ever help out or volunteer to assist with making The Travel Yogi experience as wonderful for others, as it was for me, I would love to!"

I felt so loved and appreciated. What an amazing way to bring in my 30th!"

    "This was a great trip, and I would definitely consider a trip with The Travel Yogi again! Debbi was a great instructor, and the other people on the trip were great. There was a good balance of excursions and relaxation time. The food was amazing! I think that the trip is actually a pretty good deal, given that it includes most of your food, transfers, hotel, yoga, and there is no planning required of the traveler! I enjoyed the relaxation, yoga, and meeting new people."

She is also just very calming and easy to be around. I very much enjoyed her as an instructor and travel companion. The second cenote which was about 30-40 minutes away with the cliff jumping was amazing. Our guides and drivers were amazing. They really went out of their way to be customer service oriented."

Wonderful hikes. Visiting local schools, houses and monasteries. Unique experience which will be very memorable. Would recommend using the same guide as he was able to organize some pretty cool stuff for us outside the itinerary. He was also knowledgeable and approachable. The driver was friendly and informative too."

    "No need to tell you how amazing Alexa is but I am happy to sing her praises. She made us all feel special and loved and allowed me to deepen my practice in this awesome setting (I especially adored the outdoor sessions in Punakha). She's such a gem! In general, accommodations better than expected in this LDC, and the service was awesome -- friendly, attentive and accommodating without fail. It was a packed program, allowing for virtually no down time, but I would not have wanted it any other way as there is so much to see and experience in breathtaking Bhutan. And you absolutely must retain Tashi Phuntsho as a The Travel Yogi guide -- he is not only extremely knowledgeable about his country (history, traditions, culture, politics, trends, etc.), but also a compassionate, generous person who never hesitated to fill all of our random requests and meet all of our needs, and always with his huge, heartwarming smile! So very many aspects of it were life-affirming and awe-inspiring. I'm really very grateful that it was so much more than a yoga retreat as the Himalayan culture and hiking cannot be missed!"

    "JL is exceptional! I am so thankful that I've found her. Each and every class was spot on and just exactly what I needed in my practice. Sometimes, with other teachers, I've found myself tuning out or predicting the next move ready for the class to be over. Not one single time did this happen with JL. She is truly amazing. The food was really awesome! I was a little hesitant about the vegetarian fare and no alcohol policy. I honestly didn't miss it (meat/alcohol) much and there were plenty of bars within walking distance. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and I enjoyed them. Marcela and Andres were really personable and accommodating."

    "JL seriously made this retreat happen for me. I've only been practicing yoga for about a year...and after I expressed interest in a retreat, she encouraged me to do one. I didn't know anyone besides her going - and I realize now that that's very normal on retreats - but for me, that was super scary and out of the norm for me! JL was so amazing and encouraging leading up to the retreat. She introduced me to people in class who'd also be going. She's just so positive and awesome! On the retreat- she was so accessible hung out with us, gave us so much advice and really was just one of the group! I loved every moment of the trip and was so grateful to be there! It seriously was the best experience I've ever had! Casa Om was so amazing! The managers were so helpful always, and the rooms were great! The chef staff was seriously the best. I loved everything about it!! Our tour guide, Marcella, could not have been better. She was so energetic and personable and you could tell she really loved what she does! She was so involve, the excursions were awesome! Every time I had a question about anything, it was either already listed, or it was so fast to get a response via email. I loved that! I felt so great and confident in everything leading into the retreat. Thank you for being so great on that! The group was truly amazing. Everyone was so nice, relaxed, friendly, just glad to be there! The location, resort, and staff were amazing. I loved every second!"

  • Review by Holly W.

    "I honestly had the most amazing, life-changing experience on this retreat and JL was the driving factor behind that. Her voice corrections and ability to read the room and still keep an eye on the individual is amazing. Personally, she is warm, caring and her passion for yoga beyond just the 'body stuff' has changed the way I see yoga and myself - she's had such an impact on me. Being one of only three attendees who didn't know JL beforehand - I'm amazed at the close connection she built with me in a only a week with another 11 yogis there feeling the same! Marcella, our Eco Tours guide, is the best guide I have come across in my tours all over the world - very knowledgeable, passionate about her country and the Mayan people (especially with her work with the villages all over). Overall, everything (including Andres the driver) was amazing and thought through. The response time was super fast and Courtney answered all my questions beyond the usual yoga retreat questions - and was super pleasant, knowledgeable and all her answers were considered based on what she'd learned about me and what I would most like/need. Something I'm not at all used to (maybe an Australian thing!) but it made all the difference. Everything was set up so well that it encouraged great practice and then lots of opportunities to get to know the group beyond the usual small talk - JL's influence was a huge factor in that of course, plus the organized tours and the regular times to eat together and hang out. I feel very lucky that I stumbled upon The Travel Yogi - I got a personal recommendation to check out the online videos on Gaiam and from there stumbled on the retreats page! This was a perfect coincidence of the location I wanted, at the time I wanted (my birthday!). The written testimonials and professionalism of the Travel Yogi site pushed me to book (and the motivating notice that there weren't many spaces left!) I'll be sure to recommend to friends in Australia and the U.K. - as it was the absolute perfect way to turn 30!"

    "Liz was absolutely wonderful and attentive to each student's needs, adjustments, and desires by listening and accommodating to the day's activities and overall well-being. My yoga practice strengthened and developed through the intimate workshops and sessions. The hosts at each location were amazing. Simon and Daisy at Sosian were attentive to everyone in the group, remembering every little detail down to how we take our coffee! I feel like we really got a customized and intimate safari experience here. Their energy was so great and it felt like they became family. It was really sad to leave Sosian. We also had a great time at Naboisho. Moses and the staff were attentive and provided a sense of safety at the tents. The group seemed to really appreciate and find value in the trip to the Samburu Village and the local school. Needless to say, the trip to the Elephant Orphanage was heart-pumping with overflowing love. I had no idea we would be able to interact with the elephants. The staff was really helpful, informative, and kind. Among The Travel Yogi and other comparative yoga safari retreats, I hands down had the best experience working with Jen at The Travel Yogi. I can't thank Jen enough for her insightful consideration and help in the process. Jen was responsive, thorough, and accessible at all times - by email or phone. Her energy, kindness, and passion radiated in every communication I had with her and I definitely had my questions! I am impressed with the research and selection of organizations, hotels, and partners. I am a big advocate for responsible travel and was so excited to be a part of a life-changing adventure that supports environmental and conservation efforts. Plus, there's primal yoga! Every day felt like a dream. I am so thankful I took pictures that pinch myself and remind me this experience was real! I signed up for this trip by myself and left with newfound friendships in my fellow yogis and with our guides and hosts at each stay. Thank you! The partners at Natural Habitat, the accommodations, the hospitality of the staff and hosts - I can't say enough good things about everyone and every place we encountered during our retreat. I am extremely impressed with our guide Jackson from Natural Habitat. From the first day arriving in Kenya to the last minute at the airport, Jackson made this trip incredible. His knowledge, experience, background, and passion in everything he does truly shines. He is someone that is going to changing the world and to be with him on this retreat was an absolute honor. Whether luck of the draw or intended, we really got the best here. Jackson is an amazing guide, prestigious teacher, honorable leader, and kind human being. In retrospect, this was an amazing deal as the organizations and staff were highly invested in conservation efforts and wildlife and environmental education - which are causes I strongly care about. On top of the astounding, breathtaking experience, this made the cost of the trip worth every single penny and more!"

    "Both the Bristol and Sansara were fabulous hotels with great accommodations, outstanding staff, and incredibly pleasant atmosphere. Sansara provided one of the best places to do yoga I've ever experienced! You guys do a great job of keeping us informed before, during and after! You are incredibly responsive and helpful, both of which are very much appreciated! The group vibe was wonderful, Sansara is an amazing and incredibly special place and Panama is one of the coolest countries I've ever visited. This was another amazing experience from The Travel Yogi! "

    "Mark Moliterno is truly unbelievable. My week of practicing and learning with Mark was truly life-changing for me. I knew going in that his yoga voice program was going to be different than a typical yoga workshop, but really had no idea how profoundly his program would change me. Imparting information during his classes was very detailed and easy to follow. Working with our breath, bodies, and voice was more impactful than any yoga class I've ever taken. The integration and changes that happened as we learned to add specific sounds to our practice was so exciting. Everyone in the class evolved in some way as the week progressed. The way of teaching is fun, very informative, interactive, peaceful, strengthening, and for me personally, awakening."

    "Mark is compassionate, knowledgeable, gifted teacher, and practical in his application of knowledge on all levels-physical, mental, intellectual, and spiritual. I've never had better food in my life and my husband, who was worried about the 'vegetarian' food, said he would eat this diet if the food was this good. The staff were attentive, genuine, kind, and friendly. We watched whales tail slap, breech, and spout while doing yoga. There were many kinds of birds and wild life to constantly observe. The masseuse was a lifesaver, intuitive, kind, and talented. Saved me from getting sore muscles. Everything was meticulously clean, which I so appreciated. I've never stayed at a place kept so pristine. So great that snorkeling and sea kayaking were included as part of the trip. It was amazing and the guides were wonderful. Learned a lot in the cooking class - so glad that was offered. So many choices of things to do - could not do it all, so will have to return every year for years to come! This location was a fabulous choice. Thanks for choosing it for us. The staff were very helpful and friendly, made me feel excited about the experience, gave positive energy through their interactions. Thanks so much!"

    "This Baja trip went beyond my expectations. The yoga, the location, the food, the ease of The Travel Yogi, and the total package. Was I in heaven?"

    "I would highly recommend this trip and/or another trip with The Travel Yogi and especially with Elizabeth! Everything was spelled out with so much detail that I for the first time in my life packed light and had exactly what I needed. There was no guessing! Wonderful! Elizabeth is so down to earth, genuine, heartfelt. She is the real deal. Grateful to know her. The sailing excursion was um, how do I say, beyond belief! Thank you!"

    "Everything was beyond expectation. Cannot fault a thing. Debbi was wise, kind, strong, fun, and inspiring. She is all things you want in a yoga teacher. Despite my changing email addresses three times leading up to departure (apologies). You always tracked me down and responded with patience."

    "It was the first vacation I've had in a long time where I actually felt like I had a vacation. I felt like I was on a vacation high for days after coming back. It was everything you would expect to get out of a yoga retreat and more. JL is incredible. It was the perfect balance of PV in the mornings and chill practice in the afternoons. Couldn't have been better."

    "Vytas teaches a very challenging class, and I loved it. His sequencing was extremely intelligent and prepared us for the more advanced poses. Sansara was amazing! One of my favorite yoga retreats ever, and I've been to many. I loved the location. It's so nice to have some local folks in the vicinity, and some other restaurants and bars. My room was beautiful. Bed was super comfy! Bathroom was luxurious. Loved my shower! Loved the yoga palapa! I love practicing by the beach! Layout of the rest of the retreat was so comfortable and intuitive. Loved it."

    "Without question this is one of the top getaways of my life. Mia and Patti in collaboration to conduct mind-body-soul yogi experiences have me convinced I must schedule more retreats!"

    "Vytas really made this an exceptional experience not only as a yoga instructor but as an inspiring human being and leader. From challenging us inside the yoga room to assigning each one with a secret yogi as a way to connect selflessly with one another and also enhancing the group dynamic with games and meaningful conversation. Exceeded expectations in every level. Besides the dream location and the outstanding yoga classes, the connection between the group of people that were part of this trip took the energy and experience of the retreat to a whole other level."

    "Erica's physiology knowledge will be hard to be matched by anyone. This translates into very sophisticated detailed classes. Her roundedness with other alternative healing methods, combined with her physiology and yoga sequencing knowledge, and her natural leadership and charisma, puts her in a league of her own."

    "Wonderful classes! She takes the time to make sure each person is getting the most out of every single class. Challenging for the ones that want it and offers modifications for the ones that need it. Best instructor I've ever had. I have a food allergy that the staff and chefs gave extra care to and made the experience that much more enjoyable and worry free. Details are extremely important to me so the travel yoga exceeds expectations with letting me know every detail about the trip. I recommend The Travel Yogi Gaiam to anyone because of how secure I feel with how transparent everything is."

    "This was the most amazing trip of my life. First, Jen at The Travel Yogi made every step of the way in booking the trip and my airfare so easy. She was unbelievably knowledgeable, helpful and eased all my fears. The way this retreat is structured is spectacular. The excursions every day, all day long- and the blend of yoga in the morning and the evening was perfect. We also had one day where we could choose our own adventure which was awesome. The excursions were really quality and so much fun. Liz Arch, our yoga instructor was phenomenal. She has such a warm and playful spirit and so much knowledge in so many areas of wellness. She geared the yoga each day to the needs of the group and even did a couple workshop style classes for inversions and arm balances. I was terrified to leave the US and go to this tiny place so far away, but I am so glad that I did, it was truly life changing and I highly recommend this trip for everyone!"

    "You did an amazing job of creating a wonderful and unique experience and I really loved it. The people on our retreat were so great and with so much going on with the Gaiam shoot. I was impressed with the seamlessness of the yoga, meals, excursions, and pick ups! I have loved both my Travel Yogi trips this year so much and I just wanted to make sure you knew that!"

    "Being fairly new to yoga and only practicing regularly for over one year, JL has set the bar high. This was my very first yoga retreat and I'm blessed to have found her through The Travel Yogi. Before we even met, I already felt warm through her generosity with the gifts sent to her students: Juil sandals and chakra root scented oil. I arrived to Blue Osa in Costa Rica and received the first of many hugs from JL. She gives the best hugs! She welcomed each of her students with a personalized reiki infused mala bracelet. In the short week with her, she was nothing short of inviting, personable, and all smiles. And thank you to The Travel Yogi for being so thorough in preparation for this retreat! How could I not book with The Travel Yogi again? Namaste!"

    "If I could hire Jen Hoddevik from The Travel Yogi to be my personal travel agent/life organizer, it would be worth whatever amount of money it cost! Iceland was my fourth retreat with The Travel Yogi, and exactly as it was in all previous trips, every detail was handled by Jen and her expert staff. I didn't have to worry for a second once from the point I arrived at the airport and saw the driver holding a sign with my name until he brought me back there almost a week later. The excursions were first rate-all we had to do was show up for the bus-and the cost of the trip was extremely reasonable with all of the meals, yoga and sights it included. Yoga with Elizabeth Rowan was perfect to start our day and wind down our evenings. This trip was five-star all the way, and I can highly, highly recommend it to any adventurous travelers! Thank you again to The Travel Yogi and Elizabeth Rowan for a wonderful experience."

    "Regarding Galapagos, June 2015 with the incredible instructor, Liz Arch. This was my first yoga retreat and I'm worried that it spoiled me for all future ones! I had such a fantastic time. The Galapagos islands were utterly amazing: tortoises, iguanas, sea lions, hiking, and snorkeling not to mention the amazing food and accommodations at Semilla Verde. I have super strict dietary restrictions and they were able to make me something healthy and delicious every day. We were also very fortunate to have a splendid group of yoga enthusiasts who I think will be good friends for years to come. Courtney was a wonderful hostess - she made us all feel safe, comfortable and well cared for. Thanks to everyone for a trip of a lifetime!! I'd join you again in a heartbeat."

    "My Baja Travel Yogi trip was really the trip of a lifetime. I was unsure of what to expect and felt blown away by both the location and facilities, and the detailed planning. I could truly relax into the experience and enjoy Baja because I never had to worry with a thing! As an obsessive planner, I was amazed that I could actually unplug and get so much out of this trip. I will definitely be planning another trip through The Travel Yogi in the future."

    "A trip to the Galapagos is a trip of a life time. Jenniferlyn Chiemingo, our trip yoga teacher and leader, made my experience beyond my expectations. Jenniferlyn is an extraordinary inspiring and motivating yoga teacher. She inspired me to be adventurous and make the most of the nature around me. She also helped me to reach and experiment beyond my typical yoga practice. Her guided meditations were very provoking and will last in my mind and spirit forever!! Jenniferlyn has a shining energy that is honest, refreshing and contagious!! Her attitude will make any trip, any location, an extraordinary event. I am super fortunate because Jenniferlyn is has my hometown yoga teacher. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to travel with her. Namaste!!"

    "I could not have asked for a better experience with Travel Yogi from start to finish. Jen and Liz were so helpful and communicative through the entire process. Every detail is taken care of, so there is no stress in traveling, which is rare these days! It was a magical experience at Prana Del Mar with Alexa Silvaggio as the yoga instructor. The accommodations, peaceful surroundings, delicious food and inspiring yoga made it one of the best trips I have ever had, and with a group of strangers no less! I'm absolutely hooked and cannot wait to book another retreat through the Travel Yogi! Thank you so much, Jen and Liz!"

    "The Santorini retreat was absolutely perfect! From the controlled yoga, amenities, and travel assistance to the uncontrolled staff, food, and weather, everything was perfect! I enjoyed practicing yoga with Angel in the mornings and evenings, her style of teaching was perfect for a retreat get away (calm yet challenging, with stretching and spiritual vibes infused)! The staff at Rocabella could not have been better! They were incredibly accommodating, friendly, and spoke English. Upon arriving at the retreat, all yogis who were attending became instant friends, such a great feeling! I felt safe and well prepared as a solo traveler and felt like I knew who to contact at all times if I had a question or needed something! There was free wi-fi at the resort which I really liked because it felt nice to have a connection to home, but still be in such a far away place! Thank you all again for letting me in on this amazing piece of heaven that I will remember forever!"

    "The retreat was amazing. Thank you to you and your team for selecting such a beautiful location in Bali for yoga, rest and relaxation, and exploration. The staff at Soulshine was incredible friendly and helpful. Ogoum in particular went above and beyond to show us around Ubud, explaining customs, traditions, and answering any questions we had. The facilities were clean and well-kept. I always felt safe and welcome. Thanks again for your work!"

    "It was so awesome and well organized that I didn't even appreciate how well everything was being handled during the retreat. I did a four-day organized trip to Isabela Island after the retreat, and in comparison I realized how lucky we had been to have such good guides and hosts and helpful staff. Galapagos is wonderful no matter what, but it was definitely worth it to have every so well taken care of during our stay."

I would go back there for another retreat in a second."

    "I recently went to Bali with the Ashley Albrand via The Travel Yogi. Everything about the experience was amazing, from the initial engagement with Jennifer to the follow up and finally arriving in Bali and attending the retreat. Traveling internationally can be a hassle, but Jennifer made sure that all the details were taken care of pre-trip and was available if we had any questions during the retreat. Soulshine was amazing, like a little bit of luxury paradise in the middle of the rice paddies. Ashley was phenomenal, an amazing teacher leading a life changing experience in the middle of paradise. I can't recommend the Travel Yogi enough and I will definitely book another yoga vacation with them."

    "I cannot imagine all the time and energy that went into planning this amazing retreat, but I thank you so much from the very bottom of my (jet-lagged) heart! It was quite a transformative experience, in every sense, and I felt that I was aboard a very tightly manned ship. It was a very well-balanced vacation, with just enough yoga and Ubud city time. I do hope that our paths cross someday soon, maybe on the other side of the world! "
