We had an amazing time! Our hosts had everything very well organized and were very helpful with daily scheduling. The accomodations, food, transportation and company were great! I'm looking forward to booking another trip with these ladies!

Thank you Maria and Brie. The day was wonderful. The venue great. Your teachings are so helpful to destress and detox especially during this amazing time.

This was a transformative experience with amazing people. The accommodations were beautiful and comfortable. The food was delicious. Maria is an amazing host for the Myofascial courses and had great representatives for yoga instruction. I am definitely going to go to another trip.

This trip was excellent. Maria set the tone for a wonderful, open, warm group dynamic. The location was beautiful, food was excellent, but the community is what really made the trip. Thank you, Maria!

1. Why did you sign up for the retreat? I followed Nalie Agustin since Feb 2019 as needed to find “younger” people to connect with who are living with metastasised cancer. I saw her advertise it on Insta and the dates of the June one exactly coincided with my 12 day break from infusions and blood tests = it was meant to be! 2. How were you feeling before you arrived? Very tired! 14 hours plus 4.5 hours of flying straight after immuno infusion = I am mad. But only a fever/temperature and my twin girls being sick would’ve stopped me getting on those planes!! How do you feel now after the retreat? Really great, refreshed, energised from the yoga and fascia release Healing, a bit tired from all the travel, but really not too bad. 3. What tangible takeaways are you leaving the retreat with? To practice yoga more To meditate To believe one can heal To use Fascia Release massage healing techniques 4. What 3 parts of the retreat are most memorable for you? The second sharing circle where we all shared our innermost thoughts, baggage, mother stuff, issues, cancer stuff. The first yoga practice with Emily at 8am on the first morning with the beautiful views and sounds of the sea. Having Gael as my partner for Fascia Release Healing ... she is my British metastasised TNBC partner in crime and we really connected. 5. What is the single biggest impact that the retreat has had on you? To be kinder to oneself and others and ones body and make time for you 6. If you could have changed anything about the retreat, what would you have changed? Maybe have yoga a little bit later the first couple of mornings as the people coming from US, Canada and Australia were all pretty jet-lagged! As Andros and the villas we were staying in were soo beautiful ... No need I think to arrange a Mykonos trip but the group only came to that conclusion the day before! Vassos’ cooking was amazing!! But some salt and pepper on the dinner table would’ve been a good addition 7. How would you rate the retreat venue ( 1 being sucky, 10 being amazing)? 9 7b. Would you prefer the retreat venue to be a hotel or villa? Definitely the retreat venue 8. How would you rate the food at the retreat (1-10)? 8 9. Do you have any feedback about the co-teachers facilitation style on the retreat? Anything you particularly loved or didn't love about how we ran things? I actually really liked the differences chemistry between the 2 Greek Maria’s - chalk and cheese, but a lot of love there, very entertaining. I thought Emily was an amazing yoga teacher and cancer survivor inspiration! 10. Can we use some of your words for a testimonial for future retreats? Yes

I really loved going to Greece with this group of women. I went solo on my 1st trip to Europe (Greece) so it was a little intimidating! The Hosts were both very easy to talk to & really took my questions into consideration & gave everybody a sense of belonging. The way the trip flowed was incredible & they really handled the details. They both had a great sense of humor too! Greece was phenomenal & I will go back. Jill H. Asheville NC
