Every aspect of this retreat was amazing! I would recommend any yoga retreat that Andres is hosting to anyone considering. It was our first retreat and we will definitely be going to more in the future. Andres is truly a master of his craft. He knows how to connect with everyone, and make you feel comfortable. He is a great spiritual guide and teacher. Anyone trying to better yourself mentally or physically put this on your list. The location in Ojai was magical, really great place to host something like this. Food was amazing as well from Chef Evan. I would highly recommend to anyone considering this!
