Great location. Excellent accommodations. Food was delicious & my food allergies were honored without hassle. Plenty of free/down time. A plethora of differing yoga practices for all skill levels. Fun activities. Everyone in the group was welcoming & accepting. Marla was fantastic. I highly recommend & would go again next year! Sebastian was professional, friendly & was able to accommodate some ‘off script’ yoga moves. A plus!

Thank you Kellie! You brought so much joy to our retreat and I can't wait to see you next year! This really was a special group and the great staff made it even better!

This was a perfect retreat for unwinding and finding peace in a beautiful setting. Perfect combination of classes, both yoga and hands on art activities, healing arts and free time. Such a wonderful way to enjoy the beauty of nature in this idyllic setting amidst the changing leaves. The food was delicious and it is obvious that the staff strives to include menus for any dietary restriction.. Marla is a dedicated yogini and makes classes accessible to all as she offers modifications for any skill level in a fun and gentle manner. She is also a superb retreat leader. She takes our wishes and turns them into realities, such as the beautiful fire on the front porch one evening. Marla is also adept at melding the personalities of participants and turning us into s cohesive team. The guest treatment specialists, Sebastian and April were very skilled, accommodating and compassionate and added a whole new dimension to our weekend of health and mindful movement. I would recommend Marla's retreat for everyone who wants to unwind from the stresses of everyday life and enjoy a quiet, peaceful weekend of self exploration among the vibrant fall foliage of beautiful Brown County.

Thank you so much! This truly was a special retreat made even more special with you being such an important part of it! The weather gave us an amazing opportunity to truly nourish our souls in nature! Having reiki, massage and thai offered by Sebastian and April really set the mood for embracing this special weekend together! Thank you again for sharing your own special talents at this retreat!

Marla is a gifted retreat leader. She knows how to make yoga accessible to all. It's no wonder she has a tribe of women who would follow her globe trotting retreat adventures all over the world! I certainly hope to retake this particular retreat next year as it's rare to find a cozy fall retreat so close to home and I had to leave early this time.

I have never been on a more amazing yoga retreat. I can't say enough good things about it. The accommodations were settled amongst the Fall foliage of Waycross conference center. From the wonderful campfire to the beautiful balconies off of our hospitality suite and yoga room, everything was designed for peace and reflection in nature. The amazing hospitality, yoga, and wonderful community was perfect! In addition to the delicious food and wonderful staff, we had two of the most amazing and compassionate massage specialists. We booked whatever treatment we wanted and everyone was settling into true Bliss by the end of this retreat. I can't recommend a retreat with Marla strongly enough. She goes out of her way to create the perfect environment for all who attend. Most of us are looking forward to joining her in Mexico in February!
