A brilliantly planned and orchestrated retreat, and one you'll want to repeat. Probe deep into the jungle, as well as your mind as you rise to the challenges this retreat presents. Experience of a lifetime!

Andrew and I had a wonderful time. The weather was amazing. Maria was very helpful with every aspect of our trip. The food was good, the people were gracias. The morning Yoga was especially helpful and refreshing.
My family and I had a wonderful experience in Costa Rica with Maria Garre. The local community is inviting and vibrant. Maria’s retreats are authentic, adventurous, inspiring and so much fun! We will certainly continue to explore more with her.
This was my second trip to India with Maria, and first time in Varanasi. Varanasi is a truly magical city, with lots to explore. The hotel staff, professor, and guides were all top notch, and we were very well taken care of. Big thanks to Maria and her team!
This was such a unique, inspiring and transformative experience! There is no place on earth quite like the sacred city of Varanasi.
