    "Too sad that our retreat at TCDF Ecologic with Natasha and Rosie had to come to an end. The week was nothing but extraordinary. Rosie and Natasha are just two lovely people that make you comfortable in your yoga practice and bring the whole yoga thing as a lifestyle closer to you. I am full of gratitude that I have been able to join them on their retreat at Ecologic where we enjoyed vegetarian farm-to-table meals with the nicest and kindest staff that you can imagine. Thank you so much for an uplifting week with you, ladies!"

    "I can't say enough good things about the Whole & Happy Retreat, Faasai Resort and Spa, and fearless leaders Rosie and Tasha! I signed on for the retreat without having much yoga experience, but in great need of mental clarity, a physical challenge and true relaxation. Whole and Happy delivered all of that and more! I went to bed each night of the retreat with a calm and centered mind, belly full of delicious food and a heart brimming with love and joy. Oh...and the occasional sore muscle :) Rosie and Tasha are compassionate and thoughtful teachers who will help you advance your practice and find peace in every moment. The staff at Faasai are delightful and attentive, and the resort grounds are impeccably kept! The surrounding town and beaches are perfect in every way. I'll be returning as soon as I can!"

    "This retreat showed me there is more to yoga than just physical practice. Over the course of the retreat Rosie and Natasha opened my eyes to the power of meditation, self awareness and self love. The retreat brings together amazing people (of all abilities yoga-wise) who continually inspire and assist you in reaching your personal goals. The location was beautiful with the kindest staff you'll ever meet! If you are ever thinking about going on a yoga retreat with incredible teachers and people, make sure it is this one - I'm sure this retreat wont be my last with Whole and Happy."

    "The retreat, from start to finish, was amazing and Natasha and Rosie are extremely wonderful instructors. I learned new ways of practicing yoga and how to improve my own practice, enjoyed so many delicious Thai dishes and connected with some of the most marvelous souls I've ever met. The staff at Faasai are lovely and welcoming and the culture, food and overall environment of the resort, the retreat and Thailand made it even harder to leave. I already can not wait to have my next Whole and Happy Retreat experience."

    "I feel much more whole and wholly more happy after attending the Whole & Happy Yoga Retreat at the FaaSai Resort in Chanthaburi, Thailand. I found Natasha and Rosie's instruction very easy to follow. Rather than being intimidated by these yoga masters, I felt safe moving from an awkward first-timer to one who found the strength to complete 108 sun-salutations on the fourth morning. That practice will stick with me. I am definitely looking to continue yoga in my private life. The lessons I learned will greatly benefit my future journey in yoga. Keep breathing. As long as you try you are doing it right."

  • Review by Sarah Schu from United States

    "I thought there was a perfect flow to the days themselves and the week as a whole. The sight tour on the first full day was a great introduction to the space. The Thai market visit also helped to orient us within the town as a larger community and potentially something that most people wouldn't experience on a quick thai vacation. All the chances we had to watch the sunrise and sunset together was magical. Bike rides to beaches, ahhhhh. The spring roll cooking class was sweet especially because it gave us more of a chance to interact with the Thai staff.. beach picnic was so amazing... afternoon smoothies.. okay okay now I'm naming everything.. I had such a great time!"

    "To sum up this retreat in three words: blissful, dreamy, playful."

  • Review by Patrick DeJong from New Zealand

    "I was lucky enough to attend the inaugural Whole and Happy Retreat in November 2016. Overall I thought the retreat was excellent. The location and accommodation were perfect, the food was fantastic and the yoga was great. I felt that even though I hadn't done much yoga it was still very accessible. However without a doubt the people on the retreat were the highlight. It was a really good group and some of them have become life long friends. I also really liked how it was not too hardcore healthy and we could still relax with some beers. Rosie and Natasha - these guys are a great team: enthusiastic, professional, excellent yoga teachers and very friendly. Thank you!"

    "I had the pleasure of spending 2 weeks at a retreat center being taught by both Natasha and Rosie. They are not only incredible teachers but they both have beautiful souls. I loved the bits of inspiration and poetry they mixed into their class, I kept wanting to preserve those words as they resonated so much with me and my practice. The energy of these two women is incredible. Natasha is truly one of the smiliest person I have ever met. I instantly knew that the retreat would be amazing knowing someone with that energy was present. Rosie is wise beyond her years and was always keeping us laughing. Thank you both for helping improve my practice, bringing me deeper into this beautiful world of mindfulness, and providing memories that I cherish. I would highly recommend any retreat with these two ladies, I wish I could make it out to this one! Lots of love and light to you all!"

They both have a refreshing way of instructing a class that is both well explained and fun! They are a joy to be around and you feel there contagious love and energy as soon as you meet them! I wish I could put you both in my pockets and take you everywhere with me. I would highly recommend any retreat that these two have put together. Peace & love to you all!"

Rest assured if you are a beginner or experienced yogi, Rosie will be able to enhance your postures really bring out the best from you. Natasha also a great teacher brings with her a great energy and love to the spiritual side of the retreat making this retreat an epic and amazing combination. I recommend these two teachers emphatically and wish them the very best!"

    "Rosie teaches from the heart with a wonderful freshness. She connects with her students in a way that keeps her yoga real and relevant. Rosie is entirely present with us, her students, and teaches us with conscientious attention and loving kindness. Rosie’s classes are enjoyable but challenging enough to leave us feeling like we’ve had a top to toe stretch, and the savasana is awesome. Our time with Rosie at Hariharalaya, Cambodia was really special and I look forward to going on another retreat with her."

    "If you are looking for a yoga retreat that will help you to connect to yourself and others in a meaningful and loving way, then you would really appreciate learning and practicing yoga and meditation under the guidance of Rosie. Rosie is a lovely, experienced and skilled yoga teacher and retreat leader. She has a graceful way of authentically connecting with students on and off the mat to make you feel comfortable, relaxed and open. Naturally, her warmth and genuinity in caring for others brings forth a sense of community. Rosie is able to provide inspirational yoga classes, educational workshops, and community-building activities in a fun and playful way that will surely make you feel alive and free!"

    "A couple of months ago I had the pleasure of joining a retreat where Rosie and Natasha were sharing their love for yoga. This week was the perfect way for me to learn a lot more about yoga and how to make it a way of life. Rosie and Natasha have this passion and knowledge of yoga that makes you love it even more. Besides the fact that I enjoyed their way of teaching, these two girls are a great time outside of the yoga studio as well. We had so much fun! I would definitely join a retreat with them again!"

    "I had the pleasure of attending an outstanding yoga and meditation retreat in Cambodia with Rosie and Natasha. This team is truly magical. The space they hold is clear, positive, friendly yet sacred and educational all at the same time. I would highly encourage signing up for any offering that they put their love and intention into."

    "I was Rosie's student at a retreat in Cambodia that I went to early this year. I had a few different classes with Rosie but my favourite was her yin/restorative class! It was what first got me into slower, longer holding and stretching yoga. I had never done this style before and I love it. The few basic poses we did are poses that I still do daily. As I've only being doing yoga for a year now Rosie's teaching was clear and her adjustments were accurate! Great teacher loved her classes!"

    "I have experienced Natasha and Rosie on separate occasions for class. They are both caring and loving souls that create a safe space for union between mind and body. The kindness and thought put into their instruction is clear with good intent. I thoroughly enjoyed their classes and would love to spend more time with them on the mat."

    "I cannot afford Rosie higher praise and will forever recommend her teachings. Rosie was one of my teachers in Cambodia who introduced me to yoga and mediation. As a rookie to both of these things I was very nervous that I would not be able to do ‘the moves’ or flexible enough to participate in the class. Instantaneously I could relate to Rosie- she is warm, accommodating, encouraging, inspiring and pushes you to be the best version of you. Rosie teaches you not to compare yourself to others, but grow and learn for yourself and for your own practice. Rosie made me feel comfortable and confident. She is a truly magnificent teacher, made an effort to befriend me and I will forever be following her around Asia to experience a little more of the Rosie magic."
