My longtime girlfriend and I attended this retreat on the recommendation of one of our friends and it could not have been more incredible. Xinalani is an amazing resort with outstanding food (and drinks), the friendliest staff, and peaceful, relaxing surroundings but what really made this experience special was the energy and instruction Cornelius brought to the yoga sessions and workshops. I went to this retreat being a fringe practicer of yoga - expecting to attend a few sessions here and there - however I left feeling as if I had an epiphany when it came to yoga and could not get enough of it. Cornelius is so passionate and truly loves what he does and wants to share that feeling and passion with his students. Regardless of where you are in your yoga journey, you will find the sessions fun, challenging, and meaningful. I could not recommend this retreat more highly and would jump at the chance to attend again in the future.

The location is beautiful and Xinalani was an amazing place to stay. Cornelius is doing what he was born to do. His passion is contagious and his classes are challenging and fun. I would love to do another retreat with him again. Perfect if you’re looking for a vacation with the perfect balance of relaxation and movement.

This experience was absolutely magnificent. I thank Cornelius for bringing us together at the Xinalini. He’s the best. Love him so much. The staff at the Xinalani was also very accommodating and so nice. I loved every moment, except the raccoons that came for a visit. Lol! I can’t wait to come back. Many thanks. ♥️🙏🏽♥️

this experience is truly beyond words, but i will do my best. Cornelius provides such a powerful yet calming energy that unites people. this is my second retreat with cornelius, and each time he made a group of strangers feel like old friends. his yoga classes are exactly what you would want and need to feel great on your getaway. i would feel energized and revitalized. this truly enhanced my experience in my down time relaxing and enjoying the resort. i was able to take solitude or join the group as i wanted. it’s the perfect balance of introspection and fun. i left feeling closer to myself and rejuvenated, but still had so much FUN and laughs! i will never miss a retreat with cornelius, it’s always truly beyond worth it.

This was a wonderful experience. The location is magical for a yoga retreat, open-air accommodations (3 walls) with sounds of ocean waves, delicious food, and a wonderful and knowledgeable yoga instructor. Highly recommended.
