Let me just start by saying that I never in a million years thought I would go on a yoga retreat, but I am so grateful that I did. This was hands down the best thing I have ever done for myself!! Nina and Jenna are amazing teachers with so much knowledge to offer to anyone’s physical and spiritual practice. They are two of the most wonderful, down to earth, kind humans, and I am so lucky to have shared this experience with them. Our retreat was a combination of people from all over the country and beyond. I feel like this was the most important take home from my retreat- getting out of my Boston bubble and connecting with different types of people with various life experiences. Each day was filled with optional activities and our teachers were so flexible with practice times etc to ensure that we all got the most out of the retreat experience. The energy of our group was truly amazing and I returned home feeling totally refreshed. Kristin and Ian (Mom and dad of our retreat!) are the best!! Everything flowed seamlessly due to their behind the scenes work. They are experts at the retreat coordinating process and became our best resource and friends at the retreat. They are such a loving, supportive and fun couple. This is something I will be saving for every year. Going on a yoga retreat is an amazing way to travel the world, make new friends and rejuvenate your body and soul I’m so glad I took the plunge and went!

If you want to retreat yourself, you've come to the right place. Besides being wonderful human beings, Kristin and Ian at SolSeed are incredibly knowledgeable, fun, passionate and professional. The location was inspiringly beautiful with rich culture set in one of the world's geological marvels. The instructors, Jenna and Nina, are both excellent instructors and overall just wonderful, bright lights that are a joy to be with. The experience was a rejuvenating balance of fun with the group and time alone to reflect... depth with lightness, laughter and heart centered connections, daily yoga practice that uplifts and restores, delicious healthy meals, and acquaintances that become friends for life.... LAKE LIFE, BEST LIFE! I am filled with gratitude. Thank you. ❤🙏

Beautiful resort and great teachers ! Had a great time and looking forward to the next one :)
It was an amazing trip. Very well put together and organized. The location and hotel were fantastic, as was their staff and the local establishments we were referred to or who provided services to us. We had a selection of activities, along with a few planned excursions for the group as well. Am looking forward to the next trip which I am sure will be just as great or better!
I'm not new to vacationing around the world, and I consider myself to have very high expectations - having said that, the trip that Kristin & Antonio organized and led was the single greatest vacation of my life! Where do I start? Maybe at the beginning... upon arriving in Guatemala City, we were greeted by our group leaders with a van waiting and ready to take us to our first hotel. This quick stop over in Antigua was a fantastic way to start the trip - hotel was beautiful, the pre-arranged dinner at a local restaurant was delicious, and Kristin and Antonio really made everyone feel very welcome; setting up the week for a truly unbelievable experience. While there are always speed bumps along the way, traveling through Guatemala with the group was a breeze. Comfortable and safe buses waiting for us wherever we were; organized boat trips with helpful local professionals to assist whenever we needed a hand. Once we arrived at our main location, it took a moment to believe that this was "real life". The venue of our yoga retreat was a quaint yet beautiful, awe inspiring, and relaxing oasis on the banks of a spectacular volcanic/crater lake. Our accommodations were stunningly gorgeous in a rustic sense, yet comfortable enough to call home base for the week. One of the greatest aspects of Isla Verde's location is the steep hill on which is sits. The cabins are spread all the way up, connected by a winding staircase built into the terrain. As someone who needed a bit of exercise during the winter months, this was a great way to get in some good cardio each time we returned to our rooms. And obviously being so high up, the views from each secluded cabin were phenomenal. Food and Drink: Local fresh ingredients and healthy options made each meal a delight. A multitude of options were offered, pleasing every diet imaginable (ok, maybe not strict carnivores). The fully stocked bar and fruit smoothies made sipping a Pina Colada on the sun deck a must! The local women working in the kitchen crafted each fruity beverage with perfect authenticity. Excursions: Kristin and Antonio made it very clear that this was a time for us to do what felt good and right for our own experiences. The option for a hike through the hills was magnificent, however, you could simply opt-out if relaxing in a hammock was more your style. Additionally, our trip leaders really had their finger on the pulse of the trip. For example, they sensed that a large group wanted to go to a specific town to go shopping. So instead of sending us on our own, they simply organized a private boat to take the group. It worked out better than ever, and these small adjustments to the trip proved to me that they cared about us and our experience. The people: while every group is different, the individuals on this trip were wonderful. I give credit to Kristin and Antonio for this. They themselves are lovely, caring, thoughtful people, and I'm not surprised that they attract others like themselves. The group got along so well that I am sure most of us will stay friends going forward. This review is getting long, but I'm sure I missed plenty. Overall, I cannot stress how great of a trip this was... and I know Kristin and Antonio are definitely a huge part of why it was so successful. I cannot wait for the next opportunity to join them in another exotic location, to experience new cultures, eat delicious foods, meet new people, and really enjoy my time on this beautiful blue dot we call earth. Thank you Kristin and Antonio. I will never forget this experience you gave me, and I hope everyone has the same opportunities you gave me. love you guys, -evan
