From past retreats
A yoga retreat with Carla is about authenticity, connection and culture. Although I have traveled extensively in the U.S., I have never left the country except for Canada. Carla gave me the courage and the adventure of a lifetime traveling to Italy. We stayed at a beautiful villa right outside Rome. I will never forget the Etruscan town of Calcata where we had our own private cooking lesson. The incredible six hour bike ride of the Appian Way in Rome was another absolutely stellar experience! Other experiences included swimming in a volcanic lake after visiting the amazing medieval castle Castello Orsini-Odescalchi. Also, a charming lunch in the village square of Sutri after exploring the town’s ancient Roman ruins. Just like Carla’s yoga classes, her retreat had just the right amount of space and time to really dig in and experience the beauty and magnificence of a different world. The experience of living and learning from the people that live in the place is something I value and I don’t believe I would have experienced if I had visited Italy in a different way. There was also a wonderful combination of rural and city experiences. I love both and appreciated the mix. It is because Carla KNOWS...or WORKS to know what everyone wants or hopes to experience with plenty of room for surprise! Did I mention the yoga? Twice a day! Truly amazing in the way it helped us manage our energy for all of our adventures.Vickie C.
If you wondered if yoga is for you in a meaningful way, as I did, Flourish’s retreat provided the answer. If you want to feel connected, loved, cared for, this if for you! If you seek Peace, Adventure, Culture, Love, this is for you. This retreat was beyond my expectations - I took a leap and a risk, and reaffirmed my spirit, fun, my body’s power and deep spiritual connection.
I am so amazed at the depth of inner knowledge and confidence I’ve gained - a renewal of spirt that has been dormant for too many years. So grateful for the tools that I’ve learned to continue my practice that will keep me on the positive path through life. I met so many wonderful people, and saw so many beautiful sites. If there is perfection - this is it!
