What could be said about staying in the jungle with the birds singing and the ocean crashing and the tropical breeze flying through? Luscious.

The resort itself was spectacular. It was like Shangri La! I felt very prepared for my trip thanks to the communication/emails/phone calls of the International Yoga group. Thanks!

Anonymous, Royal Bali 2015

The balance of yoga and excursions was perfect. The resort itself was so spectacular that it made it hard to leave. Being able to witness the rituals of the New Year was very special. We also all enjoyed the visit to the Royal Palace and meeting a prince of Bali! Overall, it was one of the best trips of my life!

Just loved the overall experience. The people I met were wonderful, and the setting couldn't be better. I liked that I had the free time to go off on my own, but I really valued the company of the others on the trip.

It was a very serene and peaceful setting. The walkways and stone paths were always a pleasure to walk through. It was an atmosphere that induces tranquility, and that is what you come away with.

E. Dennis-Onesto, Maui 2015

The food was expertly prepared and presented beautifully. It was always delicious and hot. I visited their organic garden on the grounds and was impressed by the size and varieties. The kitchen staff and servers were so friendly and knowledgable about the foods. I also liked the availability of wonderful fruit smoothies and delightful coffee beverages for purchase. They also allowed us to bring bottles of wine to dinner to add to the festive meal!

H. Grosskopf, Goa 2016

Loved it! I am SO glad I had this experience with Joan and the group. I will never forget it. It was the best travel experience I have had. The combination of the location, training, and company was amazing. Thank you! I definitely recommend going a day before and leaving a day after to prepare for the journey if traveling from the US—great advice! The trip to and from Goa, including the flight plan and connections, were perfect. I have never traveled that far alone and never traveled to Asia, so I went in with no expectations, but I could not have asked for a better journey to/from Goa. Thank you!

The island is lovely, people are friendly, and the manager and staff are amazing!
