Wasn't it magical? It would not have been the same without you.

This trip to Iceland was amazing. We were fortunate enough to see the northern lights on 3 different nights and then to top it off, even from the backyard of the places we where we were staying. The country is so beautiful - hiking and seeing the sites as we traveled together. The geothermal spas were incredible, the food was superb and the company was so much fun. We had a yoga practice daily then went to lunch and began excursions. I cannot say enough good things about this trip. We laughed, we played and we were there for each other. This is one journey to truly consider. Shelley does such a great job planning these events, she is resourceful, fun and creative.

This was my first retreat, and it was out of this world! The people, the yoga, the food, the chateau, and the adventure! Every last moment was perfection, and can’t wait for the next one!

This was my second retreat with DDY retreats. A huge thank you to Shelley for a once in a lifetime adventure in France. It was an amazing time. It was obvious that everything was thoughtful and planned for an enjoyable trip. It was a week I will never forget. I got to meet new friends, eat amazing food and practice yoga in the French countryside. I seriously cannot wait until my next DDY retreat. Thank you again.
