Past Trips


Thank you to Catherine for hosting a tremendous retreat and for the team at Amansala for helping to make our retreat an impeccable experience. My expectations were blown away. It was the perfect mix of movement and fitness, sunshine and relaxation, community and friendship, and unique and deep experiences. I especially loved the morning walks, yoga classes, sauna cave, and ice plunge! This retreat truly filled my cup. I can’t wait to go back!

“The Retreat” was an unmatchable experience. Catherine brings an incredible amount of creativity, energy, and wisdom into this magical setting. There is a perfect balance between structure and free time, and all activities are curated with thoughtfulness and care. I formed meaningful and lasting connections in a very brief period of time thanks to the warm, welcoming, free and fun environment that was created by Catherine. Accommodations, food, and amenities were also great. Can’t wait to return!

The Retreat with Catherine Gignac from Feb2-7, was a 5+ STAR experience. This was my first time attending anything like this, and it completely checked all the boxes and exceeded all expectations. The resort was fabulous, relaxing and the perfect setting for the Retreat. The staff was exceptional and extremely accommodating each and every day. They attended to all requests promptly. The food (menu) from breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner were all a terrific blend of authentic cuisine and fantastic beach cocktails. As for the Retreat, it was unbelievably organized and was the perfect mix of yoga sessions, excursions, group activities, educational sessions and of course some free time. The organizer, Catherine, was a wealth of information and brought an ease to me, that had never traveled outside the USA. Her schedule and welcome packet allowed the attendees to be a part of as many of each days events or if needed the flexibility to take some down time if needed. The energy level and great group of attendees put me and the entire group in the frame of mind not to miss anything on the schedule. This allowed us all to have the time to connect with the other attendees in a more personal level, and by the end of the 5 days it seemed like we became more like a family than just retreat attendees. I would recommend any Retreat lead by Catherine Gignac. She is a rockstar and you will not be disappointed to sign up for any upcoming Retreats lead by her. My best, Scott
