My first yoga retreat and it's everything I could hope for and more!! I felt unplugged and was able to focus inward on what's serving me in my day to day. Katrina and Tankut have a gift - what a beautiful experience.

A weekend that was uplifting, regenerative, and communal. I feel so refreshed and learned a lot from Tankut and Katrina. Their energy is so positive and supportive. The combination of the yoga, massage, pools, and plant medicine is really resetting for mind, body and spirit. One thing I was pleasantly surprised about was how good the food was at Harbin. I'll be back again next year!

This trip exceeded expectations. Katrina, Tankut and Elise were great coordinators and made us feel at home. In a very short time we grew our relationship together. Everything about the retreat to the beaches to the amazing food was just phenomenal. Exceptional experience, look forward to participating in more retreats with this group.

Katrina and Tankut are lovely people and did a wonderful job with this retreat (the yurt is also really beautiful). It was a good balance of yoga, reflection, hot springs, etc. It was my first time doing hot/cold spring therapy and Katrina helped walk me through how to approach it in terms of mindset and breath. And Tankut is an amazing masseuse. Great retreat if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle for a while but also push yourself to experience personal growth.
By Emily E for Heart Opening & Hot Springs Healing Retreat on May 02, 2023
