Testimonial: “I cannot say enough positive things about Kathleen and my experience with this retreat. Although I was already healthy and active, I had drifted from my Ashtanga practice and vegan eating. This retreat brought me back to my Ashtanga yoga practice and gave me more vegan outlets to help me continue on that path. But more than that, it brought me inner peace and helped me reconnect spiritually. Every morning I awoke early to walk Swami’s beach alone and meditate –I found it very healing. Just breathing in the air there is magical –it smells amazing. I’ve never wanted to breathe so much in my life.

The B&B I stayed at was so charming and welcoming…tons of tropical plant life and plenty of privacy. It was close to Kathleen’s house, so I was able to walk everywhere. Of course Kathleen is a wonderful host with tons of yummy vegan recipes and cooking tips. Even my thirteen-year-old son is enjoying the recipes!

This retreat was exactly what I needed. I came home feeling calm, centered, inspired and best of all- happy.” -Jen Yeager Kansas City
