An absolutely soul warming weekend with Yvonne, Victoria and lots of wonderful people at beautiful Ratna Ling. Everything was absolutely spot on - from the different yoga sessions lead with warmth and grace by Yvonne, the amazing food, the spacious and clean cabins, and meeting so many interesting and interested people. I will definitely join again next year!

Yvonne is a gifted yoga teacher and guide! She creates a beautifully-paced, immersive and peaceful weekend at the Ratna Ling retreat. Each yoga session was special and unique, and helped to create a sort of emotional and spiritual arc for the weekend. She provides gentle insights without being preachy, and there's no pressure to be anyone other than yourself. There's plenty of time built in to do your thing - simply sit by the fireplace, read, walk around the lovely property or just hug trees :-) Ratna Ling's setting is absolutely stunning, and is staffed by wonderful volunteers. I was incredibly moved by the temples: the human-made and the nature-made hollowed out Redwoods. Yvonne's retreat is going to be a yearly pilgrimage.

What an incredibly nourishing weekend away at Ratna Ling with Yvonne! It was exactly what my body, mind, and soul needed. The retreat was a perfect place to disconnect from my day to day and really make space for me. Yvonne led the most thoughtful and rejuvenating practices each day, and held a sacred space for us to relax and connect within. Yvonne has a gift of making us feel fully supported and held, as we explore our edges of practice. She masterfully guided us through a wonderful few days and I left refreshed, inspired, and ready to step into my next season with more clarity, grace, and ease. Ratna Ling is truly a hidden gem, it is such a peaceful oasis nestled in the trees. From the spacious, cozy cottages we stayed in to the delicious food prepared for us daily, to the nourishing yoga practices, I could not ask for a better way to spend the weekend. I also can not forget the exquisite massage I received and the great people I connected with. A huge thank you to Yvonne for this experience, I will definitely be back!
