testimonials

"Kat is an excellent guide and teacher, as she lives the principles of her practice. I was inspired by her long term commitment to a high-raw and raw food lifestyle, which she is happy to share and discuss with guests at the retreat, allowing for learning opportunities. The island also provides a natural and peaceful setting to relax. Yoga by the beach is blissful. You will leave the Samadhi yoga retreat feeling nourished, both in body and spirit, energized and lighter than when you arrived. Overall, an excellent experience for re-connecting with body, health and nature." Kris, Canada.

"I had the pleasure of attending a Samadhi Yoga Retreat recently. The best decision I made for my wellbeing, connectedness to myself and Mother Earth. The whole experience was sensational, beautiful and soul calming. I came back to what really matters, care, love, appreciate self and our planet and be present and you can attend to others with love, compassion and mindfulness. The yoga is brilliant, the vegan food with raw options sensational, the love and care exceptional and the small groups make this experience personal and special. The availability of a healing massage that I had was beautiful. Go with an open mind and the right intention and the experience can be life changing. I work in what would be considered a highly stressful industry and I have great self care in place but this retreat took the meaning of self care to a whole other level". Jacqui, Sunshine Coast
