What a past guest said about our 2010 Yoga Retreat in Laos The trip exceeded my expectations. It certainly was a joyous journey. The laughter and friendship from the group was lovely and something to treasure. The meditation and the yoga have left me with peace and calm. Gabrielle Demirdjian, Melbourne, Australia
