I really enjoyed this retreat. The venue, Blue Osa, in Costa Rica provided delicious, healthy meals and accomodations that were somewhere between glamping and a full-on luxury resort. Every day there was a wonderful routine of meditation, yoga (morning and afternoon sessions), meals and free time to soak in the beautiful nature as well as getting to know your fellow retreatants. Yoga sessions were well balanced between the differing styles of the talented teachers, Julie and Kirin, and evolved as the week went on. What an enjoyable yogic journey! The friendly, supportive space created on this retreat made it safe and fun to meet and connect with new friends on this retreat. Definitely will be hanging with friends I've made here when I get back to my normal routine. I highly recommend going on a yoga retreat with this caring team if you appreciate nature, yoga, meditation, music/chanting and human connection.

Julie and Kirin's retreat was such a special experience and I'm so thankful that we went. The resort was beautiful and tranquil. Julie and Kirin were such wonderful, warm, caring teachers. Our retreat group felt like one big happy family. I really hope we can attend another in the future! Thank you!

Ridonculously great. A spiritual journey of growth and self discovery and friendship enabled by a yoga retreat that was a once in a lifetime experience. The location (Blue Osa in Costa Rica) was peaceful, inviting and liberating. The logistics were exceptional, and the communication was clear throughout. I had virtually no hiccups. The yoga sessions we’re wonderful, comprehensive, challenging, but still doable for all levels. Julie and Kirin are an inspirational dynamic duo, and incorporated yoga philosophy in a way that gave substance and foundation to the daily practice of yoga . There also was plenty of time and opportunity for deep reflection throughout. I formed powerful and meaningful friendships in such a short time, as we were collectively and irrevocably bonded by this experience of yoga practice, growth, and ubiquitous healing. After a week, I leave with newfound strength , resilience, flexibility and growth; not just physically but - perhaps even more importantly - spiritually. Would go ahead in a yogi‘s heartbeat. Namaste

Since returning from Kauai, I have felt a sense of retreat throughout my days. Peace and serenity weave through my day, easing the stress from work and everyday tasks. I am motivated and inspired to continue what I have learned on the retreat and bring it into my daily life. This retreat showed me what it was like to take care of myself and ultimately how that will help me to take care of those around me. From eating healthy meals, to practicing yoga regularly, to calming my mind and practicing kind observations. A huge thank you to Julie for her care and support during the retreat. It was a treat being able to spend this time with her guiding our group. She was prepared and had lots of information and goodies to share, yet was flexible and open to changing the itinerary based on the needs of the group and the weather. Her knowledge of yoga, the island, cooking, and many other great things kept us inspired and in awe. I would recommend a retreat with Julie to anyone with a curious mind, an open heart, and anyone who wants to truly relax and retreat in a healthy and rejuvenating way.

Julie’s yoga retreat in Kauai was absolutely magical. It was obvious she put her heart and soul into every aspect of the trip from bringing together an amazing group of women to cooking delicious meals to leading us on transformative adventures. Experiencing the infectious passion and energy of her yoga classes daily was a powerful force throughout the trip. The memories from our time in Kauai will stay with me forever!

I couldn’t rave about Julie’s retreats enough. She is the perfect planner and takes all of the hassle out of trip organization and travel with her retreats. From morning practice to meal planning to daily adventures, the February 2018 Kauai retreat went beyond my wildest expectations. Her yoga sessions are the best mix of relaxation and strength. You’ll come away feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and in a state of bliss.
