I am not sure where to begin as I think back on my time with Kathy in the Dominican Republic. I know for certain my words will not do it justice but here goes. Switching off from our busy world is one of the hardest things to do in life, but coming on this retreat takes you to a place of peace, joy and complete relaxation (despite the hard workouts!!). The hotel is very chill, simple, not luxurious but it has its own vibe that you just melt into. Kathy creates an experience that challenges you physically and mentally but nourishes your mind, body and soul. Whether it is meditating on the beach, holding strong in Warrior 3 or deadlifting weights during the gym sessions, you know that it will flow in a way that makes sense. Caring for your muscles and mind as you go through the day. There is always plenty of downtime to enjoy the beautiful beach and ocean and you never feel harried. I even kept my phone in my room and did not miss it! The food on retreat is amazing, 80% of it taken from the hotel's own local organic farm. You can stay on program or if you want to add the odd extra you should feel free (no lie the sushi is delish). This is not one of those retreats where you are made to feel ashamed if you want a glass of wine, or a plate of fries, but honestly the food is so good you don't really want to stray! If you are new to yoga / retreats or an expert you will love this. Kathy is very good at making sure you understand the pose or flow and the meaning behind everything, then giving you opportunities to stretch yourself. This sounds like a small thing but if you are a starter being able to achieve the pose is such a great feeling as opposed to thinking I can't do it, so whats the modification! I just cant recommend Kathy and her retreats enough. This is my third (second one here in the DR) and I look forward to them so much. I have already booked to come back next year. Give it a try, you won't regret it!! #livinglife
