Food was excellent! Vegetarian meals.. prepared in a colorful array with delicious taste every single meal. Yoga and meditation and the hike= excellent too! Loved the entire experience... another great thing was to do this with a small group 7-8 ppl was perfect. The renovated church was a great space, nice small town away from the hustle and bustle, friendly people. Will definitely do another one.

"Calm and Relaxing "

This relaxing yoga retreat was exactly the kind of break I needed from work. The small-town mountain environment was a refreshing contrast to the city. Stephanie was helpful in accommodating my friend's and my own injuries throughout yoga and with everyone's different appetites and dietary requirements at mealtime. Overall, this retreat was worth the drive and cost several times over.

"Beautiful, mindful and intentional experience!"

Stephanie’s intentions in her yoga retreat encompassed all senses to dive deeper within! Her practice comes with a rooted and trained understanding of what yoga is and passes this on. Stephanie’s gentle nurturing spirit flows throw us in her preparation of fabulous food, beautiful space and yoga practice!

"Simple and grounding"

Stephine designed a small intimate retreat that draws you into a little peace bubble. She is full of spirit, fun, compassion and wisdom. That energy spilled over onto the group. And the food was beyond amazing, simple but delicious

"Time slowed down at retreat"

Yogini Stephanie provided two inspiring yoga/meditation classes a day in a beautiful light-filled space, and delicious, healthy food. What a wonderful escape in a friendly small town.

"Perfect retreat in every way"

I found Stephanie to be kind, thoughtful, an excellent Yogini and a most accommodating host. I loved being in Marshall-you drop into a beautiful No Carolina gorge- with amazing scenery, history and people. The studio is serene and spacious. The food was delicious and abundant. It was a great experience.

"A cultural experience "

My daughter and I have not been on a lot of yoga retreats and other than practicing yoga we were not sure what to expect. The little town of Marshall, as explained by Stephanie, is one of the few "blue zone" towns of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We were able to experience art, scenic walks and hikes, fantastic blue grass music (on Thursday nights), a craft brewery and the historic county seat with the Daughters of the Confederacy's monument to Robert E Lee.

What a find in Stephanie as owner/operator - a delightful person with many talents: a yoga teacher who listens, a business woman who responds in a timely fashion to emails and phone calls, and a fantastic cook who prepares and presents nutritious meals that make you feel good afterwards!

I wish her all the best in her future endeavors!

"3 Perfect Days in Marshall, NC"

My first yoga retreat turned out to be an awesome experience! The accommodations were so cool (in an old church), the food was excellent (vegetarian), and the yoga was so much more than I have been practicing at home!

"Came for the physical aspect but left with even more."

The facility (a 1912 church) was nicely restored, clean and comfortable. The meals served by Stephanie were seasonal, colorful and really tasty. The town is small and quaint which I loved. I learned a lot about the spiritual aspects of yoga practice and came away with a lot to think about.

"Sacred Yoga Wonderland"

From the town to the people to the food to Stephanie herself, everything was absolutely amazing. I could not imagine a better setting for a yoga retreat. There were different forms of yoga offered and the diversity added to the greatness. And the food. Oh my goodness. The food is absolutely positively AMAZING. I was so sad to leave but so glad to have had the experience and meet so many great people. It was so so so great.

"Yoga retreat with Yogini Stephanie"

This was my first yoga retreat and I LOVEF every minute of it!! Stephanie was warm and welcoming. She is an AWESOME cook and I love the fact that the retreat was tucked away in this tiny town in the mountains. It was the perfect venue to practice yoga and just enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery and nature. The town folks of Marshall were delightful and welcoming! I highly recommend this retreat!!!

Stephanie was a warm and attentive host. Everything (from meals, to yoga sessions, to rest time) was well organized and thoughtfully executed. I felt challenged during the sessions and would go on this retreat again. Highly recommend for others!

"Yoga Retreat with Stephanie"

This was my first yoga retreat. I loved everything about it. Stephanie was amazing, the accommodations were great and the food was incredible. I also enjoyed the small town athomsphere.

I had a wonderful time and highly recommend a yoga retreat with Stephanie.

"Namaste to a great teacher"

The yoga was excellent and diverse. Stephanie demonstrated a great ability to determine where a yogi is at and taking them where ever they want to go with their practice. I have been practicing mainly hot power, vinyasa, bikram, and restorative types of yoga for more more than 15 years. Stephanie made my world bigger by taking me deeper into hatha and yin. She was able to take me deeper into poses through explanations based on her training and experience versus where I was at in the moment. She did a great job of demonstrating and explaining advanced poses as well.

The food was exceptional. Stephanie is a great cooking talent. I have been in a gourmet club for over a decade and am a carnivore by nature. I have participated in 40 day yoga challenges only to start dreaming of bad things like chicken legs part way through and struggling to stay on the vegetarian wagon. Stephanie continually prepared tasty, creative, healthy vegetarian/vegan meals.

The little town of Marshal was charming and friendly. The nearby trails provided good locations for hikes along rivers streams, and hills. The yoga facility was a renovated church with hardwood floors. It was very clean and comfortable.

Overall I think the experience leads to growth wherever you are at. I am grateful for the experience. Thank you Stephanie. Namaste.

"Wonderful experience"

I basically liked everything about this retreat. Stephanie was a fantastic host with a wonderful personality and energy. She is also very knowledgeable on holistic/yoga topics and shared stories of her travels which were amazing! I teach yoga and wanted to learn some new poses to add to my class and i got all that and more. The location was great and the accommodations were very cozy and welcoming. Stephanie is a great cook and serves up amazing meals! Would definitely recommend this retreat. (-:

"Amazing weekend retreat!"

This yoga retreat was incredible! Stephanie is a great yoga instructor who really took the abilities of the participants into consideration and kept the sessions challenging and fun. We spent some time practicing meditation as well, which was pretty new for me, but it Stephanie was a willing and capable guide. She is also a fantastic cook, so the vegetarian meals were really amazing!! I don’t think I’ve ever eaten that well! Overall, the retreat was very relaxing and the perfect opportunity to reset. Thanks Stephanie, for a wonderful weekend- I will definitely be back!

"Excellent intimate yoga retreat "

I really loved the whole experience. What made this retreat special was the space, a beautiful converted church that just invited relaxation and contemplation. The acommedations were also sparkling clean and the bed comfortable. Stephanie is a kind and warm soul. She is both humble and genuine and able to relate yoga principles into everyday life. I most enjoyed the guided meditations, which really brought me further into my practice. The little town with its sweet river and the setting in the mountains only added to the charm of the whole retreat. I would highly recommend this to anyone seeking a grounded intimate yoga retreat.

"3 Days in Paradise"

Stephanie was so welcoming to us.

She was a great yoga instructor. Her range of knowledge and understanding of all of the aspects of yoga was vast. She also is a fantastic chef. Every meal was delicious and so healthy.

The little town of Marshall was cute and entertaining. We got to listen to a Grammy quality bluegrass performance one evening.

Overall, we had a great yoga retreat thanks to Stephanie.
