I LOVED Spain!! So grateful for the opportunity to go to the south of spain.....with mountain views, proximity to the beach, spectacular weather, and the amazing food (tapas, morrocan influences,) & culture!
This was the most amazing retreat filled with sensory overload. Everywhere you turned in the Azores was lush and green, even though there were many moments of wind, rain, and clouds during the first three days. Petra's classes were finely attuned to the needs of her retreater's and were always exactly what we needed. Our guided hikes were spectacular, and were finished with going to different thermal hot springs that were recuperative and relaxing. The food was great, I loved having many options at breakfast. Our dinners out were wonderful too, especially going to Quinta de Sabores (sp.), such a beautiful "farm to table" experience, the atmosphere there was truly unforgettable. Santa Barbara Eco Resort was a wonderful resort, I loved having a villa, it was spacious and the views were spectacular. I highly recommend going to the Azores on a retreat and will definitely go again should the opportunity arise.
The trip met all of my expectations. Tina Reale was terrific. Everything was well coordinated and there was plenty of communication throughout.
We had a fabulous week; incredible people, lovely food, perfect setting and nice accommodations. I would love to return. The views from the yoga studio were incomparable.
It was an absolutely fabulous trip. This experience far surpassed everything that I imaged as the best-case-scenario for a gathering of this type. It was engaging, relaxing, rejuvenating, revitalizing, and grounding. I enjoyed all the activities, food, accommodation, and especially the people who came to this gathering. I was amazed at the openness, kindness, support and love that was shown by all participants and organizers. Simply put, it was magical and I would absolutely love to go again in a heartbeat. Also, the organizers did a superb job to make sure that everyone was included, had a good time and received the level of comfort and attention that exceeded their expectations. Please do another one of these events!!!
