Here’s what past participants had to say about their NYS experience:

“As a yoga beginner, I was a little nervous going on a yoga retreat but Karen was fantastic! She’s a welcoming spirit with an infectious enthusiasm for life and wellness. She made yoga approachable and each session was unique and challenging for all levels. The weekend retreat was a relaxing balance of yoga, meditation, socialization, relaxation, nature, and incredible food! I left the retreat feeling relaxed and inspired to incorporate new wellness habits into my normal routine. Thank you!”  -Chris Walker

“The Nourish Retreat on Hornby Island was the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of my day to day city life. We reconnected with nature, with one another and most importantly, ourselves. Everything was taken care of – from ocean side accommodations and beautiful meals to thoughtful yoga classes and mindfulness activities. If you are even just slightly considering a yoga retreat, make the magic happen for yourself and GO! Thank you Karen for holding space for such a sacred weekend xo” – Ty Heathcote
