June 2023

This retreat was exactly what I hoped! It gave me the opportunity to meet new people, reconnect with nature and strengthen my yoga practice. Olivia was a calming and kind teacher throughout the retreat and tailored our morning and evening practices to the summer season. This was my first yoga retreat and certainly won’t be the last🤍



June 2023

Had a great, profound, refreshing and relaxing Summer loving coastal retreat with Olivia. Everything was so perfectly curated right from location, yoga sessions, food, herbal drinks and along with this there was Me time too. Olivia puts her heart into her retreat.
