The details of the retreat where lovely from the accommodation, location, meals, relaxing and restorative yoga, beautiful facial and gorgeous women to share and explore conversations in the most relaxed and supportive way. The weekend was the invitation needed to stop all the doing and appreciate the benefits of taking things slower and allowing the body to rest and restore.
