Shanti was my first yoga retreat and I'm so glad that it turned out to be such a positive experience. I had just googled it and went without any prior knowledge or recommendation. I was interested in the workshop for the weekend that I chose (conscious eating) and I just wanted to get away and relax for a couple of days. I was very satisfied with the entire experience. The food was amazing at shanti, prepared with love by the resident holistic nutritionist. It was absolutely delicious, and very healthy and organic. I discovered taste buds I didn't know I had!!! Eating in silence was one of the highlights. Pray we did as a group through yoga and meditation several times a day. Both Wendy and Darin are amazing instructors and I was able to do the poses at my own pace and ability. And finally love! Love your body, love your mind and love your spirit. Love yourself through positive affirmations to live your best life. That was the message for me during the entire weekend. I felt relaxed, rejuvenated, positive and grateful to have had this wonderful experience. On top of everything, I made a couple of friends that I continue to stay in touch with. The accommodation is very good. The place is very clean and well maintained. You have to share rooms if you go alone which is what I did, but it's part of the deal as a retreat. Perhaps a good opportunity to face some fears and come out of our shell :). The house is right on the lake and has lots of beautiful views. I would love to go back in the summer to actually be able to swim and kayak, or simply sit on one of the docks and watch the beautiful sunsets. I can't wait!!!
