“All you could want in a trip! 5 stars the entire way through, down to the extra attention to detail and unique finishing touches. The passion and effort Kim put into this retreat did not go unnoticed. The restaurant choices were spot on and the activities, outings and yoga classes were all super fun and enjoyable. The style and vibe of the B&B was mesmerizing. Lots of culture and plenty of delicious food. Trip of a lifetime. 2 thumbs up!

“I would like to say how much I enjoyed the Mexico City retreat. Kim did an amazing job planning our days. We truly had a wonderful cultural and culinary experience. The yoga and meditation classes were perfect for all levels and very nourishing to body and soul. Thank you, Kim, for an amazing experience. I will never forget my time in exotic Mexico City.”

“The retreat in Fez, Morocco, was an exotic and magical experience. The call to prayer reminded me that I was far away from home. Within the walls of this ancient medieval city, we practiced yoga, ate like royalty, and were transported back to a distant time. Daily yoga led by Kim was centering and lovely. The meals were nourishing and delicious. Fez and the surrounding countryside were enchanting. I feel very grateful for this wonderful experience.”

-Nancy | Feed The Senses, Feed The Soul Retreat Guest, Morocco

This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Something I will keep with me always. Even now, a month after coming home, I feel transported just thinking back on my experiences. Would not have missed it for the world.”

“Dear Kim- I’m not sure my words can express the gratitude I feel in my heart for every moment that we shared together. After a retreat with you, you come home filled with joy, wonder and gratitude. You are and amazing person and teacher!!!  With love, kindness and patience you give each of your students, the tools we need in a wonderful atmosphere and space. Every pose in a yoga class, meditation, lecture, song, ritual is like a magic wand that opens our heart, heals our body and embraces our spiritual journey. You are always available for a hug and a listening ear; ready to share your knowledge, your experience, your adventures and your voice that fills our vessels. We learned how to be with ourselves, how to listen to our hearts, how to be grateful for the moment, for the food, for the nature that surrounds us, for the silence and our breath. You help us to embrace our differences, our strengths and weakness. I’m so blessed for having you in my journey, as my mentor and teacher. Thank you.”

“Words cannot begin to describe the feeling in my heart today. Together, you have guided my soul, nourished my spirit and my body and replenished my well in ways I forgot I needed. Your love, your kindness, your words, your movements, your creativity, your music, and your individual gifts have made me feel whole once again. Thank you.”

-Antoinette | Yoga, Live Music + Ritual Retreat Guest

“This retreat with was the most powerful and meaningful experience that I have had in a very long time. I am so grateful for such an amazing opportunity. As I began to process the retreat upon my return, I felt a significant shift. I feel so clear, alive and in touch with emotions. I attribute this awakening to Kim’s wisdom, spirit, beauty and guidance. Prior to this, I was aware of the profound connection between mind, body and soul, however this retreat allowed me to truly experience it first hand. I can’t wait to further achieve growth and transformation through another retreat with Kim.”

-Ali | Ojai Retreat Guest

Your retreat was one of the most rewarding and eye opening experiences of my life. Every detail, from the clean and delicious food to the cloud like beds, was in service of the overlying tone of the weekend: relax, discover and grow. Few people can get me out of bed before 7 in the morning, but I found that on Sunday I was looking forward to the sunrise meditation and yoga classes- truly the best way to start a day! The people invited to add experiences to the weekend, through shamanic healing and music, only enhanced the positive, fun energy. Rarely do you find someone who has the ability to bring together so many compatible, like-minded people, but the group had not one person who wasn’t there to enjoy the amazing classes, scenery and conversation. I came out of the weekend with a new lease on how I live my life and having made 13 new friends. Thank you Kim, for an amazing weekend!”

-Caitlin | Yoga, Live Music + Ritual Retreat Guest

“I had the honor of participating in Kim’s retreat in Lake Arrowhead and I still don’t think I’ve come down from it. Feeling completely blessed and inspired. From the beautiful accommodations, yoga and ceremonies performed, to the food as well the new yogi family discovered…to say it was an amazing spiritual experience in more ways than one, does not cut it. Kim has an amazing talent as a yoga instructor and a wonderful team behind her that made the retreat an experience I will always hold dear in my heart. But what was so beautiful about Kim’s retreat, is Kim’s spirit attracts similar beautiful spirits and I for one feel very privileged to have been part of this new community of people who spent a wonderful weekend together that touched all of us.”

-Julie | Lake Arrowhead Retreat Guest

“Dearest Kim- A huge thank you for a fantastic weekend. You set an intention to create a space with a spirit of rejuvenation and renewal, and your mission was accomplished in the most wonderful way. I will always remember your retreat weekend as being one of the true highlights of my life.”

-Phyllis | Ojai Retreat Guest

“Hi Kim- I just wanted to thank you again for hosting such a life changing weekend. I walked away with new perspectives on so many things. I’m still flying high and just had to let you know how much I appreciate you!”

-Colleen | Ojai Retreat Guest

“What drew me to this retreat was Kim’s loving, feminine energy, which created an instant bond between us.  She is caring, nurturing and and a gifted yoga teacher. Her vision of rejuvenation and deepening connection to the divine at her yoga retreats is exactly what people are craving. It was a most wonderful experience to participate in Kim’s retreat.”

-Aparna | Yoga, Live Music + Ritual Retreat Guest

“Kim’s yoga retreat was wonderful on so many levels.  She provided such a safe and welcoming space that fostered a loving and joyous energy throughout. It was fun, nurturing, relaxing, restorative, nourishing, connecting with self and each other even though most of us didn’t know one another before. I know it touched all of us in profound and lovely ways. I was a little hesitant before going as I hadn’t done yoga in years and have some fairly serious back problems. I’m SO glad I went. It was a gift. Thank you, Kim!”

-Bonnie | Ojai Retreat Guest

“The gift you shared with us this weekend is immeasurable.  Thank you for your loving spirit and awakening experience for us all.”

-Greg | Lake Arrowhead Retreat Guest

“Thank you so much for your guidance, love and wisdom. We both had an amazing and transformative experience.”

-Laura | Lake Arrowhead Retreat Guest

“Every time I think of your Autumn Retreat in Lake Arrowhead, I am back in Spirit to a place which invited peaceful solitude and a safe space to be myself.  The Glacier Lake house felt like it was in the center of the Universe, and it created an energy vortex which was palpable, exciting and serene all at once.  Your twice daily yoga and meditation was absolutely Divine!  It fed my body and soul and uplifted my Spirit.  The sacred chants transported me on a frequency that was blissful and clearing.  Kim, you brought this through your words of wisdom and personal energy field. Thank You from my Heart.  I am still meditating every day as well as doing yoga. I have found a deeper perspective and strength to deal with the various demands of my life and the delicious, all natural food has changed the way I eat.”
