Wow!!! I had the most magical, rejuvenating, inspiring, phenomenal time exploring Leavenworth with these women! Holly is such a genuine, caring teacher - connecting with each and every one of us in the studio, on our daily adventures, and when sitting around the campfire every night. She was so eager to share all of her wisdom, tips, and tricks with us during our yoga workshops. Nicole is the most smiley, kind, welcoming ray of sunshine - the best camp counselor you could ever hope for! The two of them fabricated the most incredible environment for us all to learn, connect, grow, and explore together. I left this fairytale of an adventure with not only new knowledge about myself and my practice but also many new friends - more than I could have ever asked for!!
This was one for the memory books! I was nervous about going on my first ever yoga retreat and I am so glad I decided on this adventure. They were all such amazing and sweet souls and I felt comforted and cared for the entire time! The food was ridiculously yummy (even for vegans!), the location was epic, and the yoga, adventures and new friends will be forever cherished. Words do no justice, this is just something you must experience for yourself!
As a novice yogi (and even more novice handstand-er) and a solid introvert, I felt I was taking a big chance when I signed up to go to the Yoga Adventure Retreat in Leavenworth, WA. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve made all year and certainly the best decision I’ve made in the category of self-care since I had my first child 12 years ago. I arrived feeling overwhelmed, over-stimulated, all-around exhausted, and honestly, a bit disinterested in making new friends. I left feeling recharged and enormously grateful for the nearly twenty amazing new friends made during my time there. The days were packed with amazing yoga, ridiculously good (and healthy!) food, breathtaking hikes, and unforgettable companionship. Holly and her crew are some of the friendliest, and most approachable and grounded people, I’ve ever met...I can’t wait to book my next retreat with these ladies:)
The time I spent in Leavenworth for my yoga retreat ended up being so much more than just yoga. This trip was an experience. I was treated like a member of the family right away. They provided shuttle services, full catered and delicious meals, sleeping arrangements, daily yoga classes and workshop sessions, hiking and regional field trips. When we left Leavenworth, I felt like I got to experience the culture there and witness the shear beauty of the region. The hiking was like nothing I have seen in the United States! These ladies had everything so well planned out on a realistic time line. They put their heart and soul into ensuring we have our every need taken care of. I look forward to future retreats with them. Thank you ladies!
If you are on the fence about taking the next Yogadventure Retreat - I highly encourage you to stop hesitating and sign up! It will be an incredible adventure that you will not regret. I met the most amazing, strong women that showed me compassion, comfort and empowerment throughout a magical magical week on Maui! Run, don’t walk to sign up!!
This past week was a moment in my life I will never forget. We pushed ourselves to our limits and opened up our minds and hearts to new ideas. We experienced many cultures and made new friends. This retreat is the bomb.com and I loved every second. Thank you Yogadventure Retreats! I will be back!
Thank you Holly and Nicole for being gracious hosts and THE BEST energy dealers ever! Best experience I’ve had so far at this point in my life and I am ready to come back next year! I literally left my heart in Maui.
Your heart is in everything you do. It is nice to witness and be a part of so much passion for experiences in life. You attract healers and teachers that just need a little self care and recharging, so they can go home and be the badasses they are.
THANK YOU! Both of you worked very hard to put this amazing adventure together, and have been incredible hosts! I cannot wait util my next Yogadventure Retreat with you. My heart is full with the life long memories made this week. So much love to both of you and all of our Maui tribe.
A yoga retreat with Holly and Nicole is more than yoga, it is an experience. They take you into their home towns, they treat you like family, providing all your wants and needs for food, a place to sleep, exercise needs, adventuring and human connection. The people come together from all walks of life to connect to the basic need for self care and connection. Yogadventure Retreats provides a safe place to disconnect or reconnect as your body and mind see fit. Plan to eat well and have opportunities for exercise/yoga more than once in a day. The adventures give a nice complement to yoga and give you an opportunity to experience the community. The location for retreat was beautiful and perfectly located across from the ocean, which made nightly sunset and whale watching so easy. The yoga studio was perfect, all equipment provided and wonderful space for learning. Bravo to Holly and Nicole for thinking of it all and giving their heart to all participants. Thank you so much! I miss our time together.
From the moment I parked my car, to our last goodbyes, Holly and Nicole were excellent hostesses. An instant feeling of friendly acceptance and fun permeated our entire experience. Each aspect of our retreat was mindfully curated and executed with ease. My cares and worries fled and a space for healing and growth was left. Our living space was clean and beautiful, featuring stunning flower arrangements, posh furniture, and lots of spaces to relax and gather. Across the street and down a short beach access, we enjoyed spectacular Maui Sunsets on our semi-private beach. Delicious catered dinners provided vibrant opportunities to learn and experiment with new ideas. I loved cutting banana leaves into my own dinner plate as well as tasting new flavors daily. Yoga practices were varied and fulfilling. Holly’s keen knowledge and expertise shined in each class. I absolutely loved doing myofascial release under her guidance and learned so much in her backbend workshop. Our guest teachers were dialed into our energy yet brought their own flavor to spice up our atmosphere. My personal journey in our aromatherapy sound bath was deeply spiritual. Lastly, the women attending this retreat were remarkable. I have never been around a more diverse yet accepting group of ladies. We learned together and laughed together (a lot). Holly and Nicole set the tune, but we carried the pitch of joyful positivity and love one for another. An altogether unforgettable and awesome adventure!
