“Fantastic yoga retreat.”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

I went recently on a one-week yoga retreat at the Casa Las Tortugas yoga center. I hadn't done yoga in years, so I was nervous about whether I'd be able to follow along. The instructor, Robin, made each class challenging enough for the serious yoga practitioners while also providing guidance and instruction (and alternative postures) for those like me who weren't as skilled. She focused each class on a different aspect of the yoga practice, and the sessions built on each other, so by the end of the week I was stronger, more focused, and more confident in my yoga abilities. Robin also devoted time in each session to using yoga to focus the mind, through breathing exercises and meditation.

The morning yoga sessions were in the spa, and then the afternoon sessions were up on the terrace, overlooking the ocean while the sun was setting. Gorgeous.

I also had a massage in the spa from Benjamin and thought he was great. He has warmth and energy in his hands, and a gentle, calming presence.

I thoroughly loved the yoga retreat at Casa Las Tortugas and hope I can make time in my schedule to go back next year.

I took yoga classes and had a facial. The facilities were clean and the atmosphere very relaxing. There was delicious water available in the yoga studio. The woman who gave me my facial was very skilled and attentive. I intend to return.
