Dear all at Sol Axe Thank you for your hard work in putting this together. It was amazing! Eva

Wonderful! I enjoyed the location of the beautiful Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort in Nosara, Costa Rica. The all inclusive amenities (i.e. prepared meals, beach towels, laundry service, etc) enhanced the stay. The courteous and attentive staff also heightened the retreat experience. Much love and respect to Andreina, Mary and Elika, the instructors who coordinated the retreat. The ladies were phenomenal! The classes that I participated in were rigorous and challenging. They met my expectations. The class schedule and excursions were posted daily on the white board, this helped with logistics and planning. It was a wonderful group of people on a very memorable trip.
It was an amazing experience! The organizers were great, the fellow adventurers were also wonderful! The accommodations, classes, food, excursions were all top notch!! It was a wonderful experience and I would definitely do it all over again!!

I almost don't want to post this so people don't find out how awesome this is and it gets sold out next year. I am not sure I could have had more fun. I took advantage of all the classes, spent time meeting new people and basically said "yes" to everything. It was well organized and laid back at the same time. The hotel and the food was great. The people were lovely and I learned to love Zumba. So great, can not wait until 2018.
