Pauline“In true love and caring spirit, Kylie & Emily gave us their mind, body and soul at their Inaugural Alpine Spring Yoga Retreat, We, in turn, were beautifully stretched and nourished. There is now a renewed ‘spring’ in my step which I am enjoying immensely.  I would sincerely recommend their dedicated teachings to all.”
~ Pauline

Jenni“I approached with apprehension not knowing what to expect and not having the ideal body type. I felt welcomed from beginning to end by a group of warm, friendly people. Classes and workshops were well planned and provided plenty of support. Combined with exceptional food and a stunning location my only complaint is that it was not long enough. Congratulations Kylie and Emily you did an amazing job coordinating and hosting your first retreat!”
