Just got back from my blue spirit retreat and feel amazing. The combination of healthy but tasty vegetarian food, gorgeous setting and a daily regiment of yoga and pilates (special to my retreat) has refreshed me and left me ready to come back from vacation and tackle the world. Well maybe not the world but I certainly feel like I got a reset button on life. Oh and while I haven't weighed myself yet, all my pants are suddenly loose and I'm pretty sure I must have lost at least 5 pounds. I hovered between a review of 4 and 5 because there are a couple of details that I thought could have been improved like having snacks and juice available throughout the day rather then for purchase at the cafe and being able to flush toilet paper in the toilet (though to be fair it is an eco friendly resort so I'm not sure that's even possible). That said, this was one of the most special and relaxing vacations I have ever had and I couldn't recommend it more so I went with the 5 star excellent review. Really a must do retreat for anyone in need of break. I would recommend researching your retreat thoroughly though as most of your time is spent with your fellow retreat participants and doing the retreat activities. Our instructors were AMAZING but I would imagine the experience a little less special with lesser teachers. Have fun and enjoy!
