"Retreats like this offer me the chance to step away from my regular demands in life, examine them and myself, and then return with renewed energy and enthusiasm. What did I get most from this retreat? That is beyond words."
- Michael Smallwood, Orlando
"This retreat offered a safe space of support, encouragement and acceptance; a space to let roles, responsibilities and stress drop away; providing opportunity to spend quality time with myself - to find what has been forgotten, to discover something new, and to embrace it all." - Kerry Dubay
"Magicians create illusions. Prior to this retreat I was a master magician to my own feelings, conflicts, fears and even joys. The fog has been lifted! These 5 days were a perfect blend of 'real magic' - Eileen N.
"I’ve fallen in love with the practice (yoga) more than I ever have." - Eva S.
“PremYoga has brought me home into my own body, helping me to be present within myself. Through PremShakti’s method of teaching, I learned to accept myself as I am…Gradually yoga came with me off the mat, out of class, and in subtle ways began to shift my perceptions of everyday life…and I have a lot more choices with new awareness. My physical body is so much more ALIVE, and has changed dramatically as a result of my yoga practice. My eating habits changed, and I’ve dropped 40 pounds and developed lovely muscle tone. My breathing is deeper, fuller – life enhancing rather than something I take for granted …I have so much more peace and compassion for myself and other beings. I am soothed from the inside out and need external approval less and less. Yoga is slowly, lovingly, smoothing out rough edges in my emotional self which have troubled me for years. In ways I don’t always understand, I receive an inner strength from this practice which is facilitating my release of old negative habits, fears and judgments. I could go on and on with examples of ways I’ve changed; including not using valium anymore when I go to the dentist!” - Abby M., Ashville, NC
