AN INTEGRATIVE APPROACH
"I had some initial concerns about my blood sugar dropping and dizziness but I would absolutely recommend this retreat. Jenn's instruction and guidance through the fasting and integrations of yoga and mindfulness are skillful and rhythmically orchestrated. It's been a beautiful experience. I've gained a lot of clarity about not only supporting my body but also how my life habits can greatly impact my vitality."
~ Tammy Miles
"This was my second year and I didn't have any hesitations. I love the nutritional juices combined with the supportive yoga practice and a safe space to slow down and practice mindfulness. Learning how nutrition can further support my health and how to make lasting changes is helpful too. I've already recommended this retreat!"
~ Rebecca Lumley
“I really appreciated how the yoga sessions complimented and supported the cleanse/juicing fast. Jenn’s knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine went into the yoga class structure and working specific organ systems really deepened my experience. My body feels clearer and lighter. And I feel supported in healing my digestive system. I would recommend this retreat. It’s been a great opportunity and beautifully supported by nourishing juices and yoga practice that was healing, challenging and restorative in an extraordinary, beautiful west cost environment.”
NEW TO CLEANSING?
"I hesitated because I was unsure about my bodies reaction and not wanting to feel sick. I wasn't sure about juice and what to expect. It was all fabulous - thank you for the care and attention to alignment and the beautiful yoga series. I loved all of the practices. My stomach feels clean, my mind feels relaxed, renewed and recharged and my spirit is singing! I would recommend this retreat. Its a beautiful celebration of self and a reminder of nurturing ourselves in many facets of life."~ Candice Baytaluke"I was concerned about the cleanse because I had never participated in one before. But it was very good and I found it refreshing. The juices made it easy to go without solid food and the accommodations were good. I would recommend this retreat because it would be beneficial for people to step back and evaluate several aspects of their lives. "~ Mike Olson"I was excited to attend a yoga retreat (my first!) combined with a juice cleanse (my first!) in a setting by the ocea. The yoga sessions were wonderful! I also loved the discussions about cleansing and nutrition led by Jen. She has a lovely, gentle approach to teaching. I felt safe, well-looked after and inspired. The nature connection activity was also a great way to feel the unity between humans and our environment. I feel terrific. My digestive problems are gone I feel full and healthy and physically open and well rested. I would totally recommend this retreat. I think everyone would benefit from taking some time away to rethink bad habits, rest and re-charge. I would not change a thing. It was perfect!"~ Debbie Olson“My only hesitation was the two days of juice cleansing because I wasn’t sure how my body would respond. But now I feel cleaner, and healthier; both physically and mentally. And more resilient to meet the needs of everyday life. I loved the whole energy of the retreat. I had lots of space to explore my inner self on my own, and having the guidance and support through the yoga and meditation talks really helped me get through. I would recommend this retreat. It’s a great way for anyone new to juice cleansing to be introduced to it because it is so contained and supported. The support from the facilitators was amazing. I felt very nurtured and nourished. “~ Leanne Eriksen
NEW TO YOGA?
"I had never done yoga before and have not been very active for the last two years. I specifically liked the yoga, the calmness and the cleansing. I now feel calm, more flexible, more grounded and healthier. Jennifer - I think you're amazing and a very good teacher. The juices and soups were great too!!"~ Angela Brownell
“I’m not really a yogi, have never done a cleanse, and was terrified of being without caffeine, and cigarettes. And now I feel so relaxed, rejuvenated, and grateful. I caught up on like a years worth of sleep and my acne cleared up. And I went without caffeine and cigarettes for literally the longest in decades. I specifically liked the grounds, the pool, the loose schedule, the juices, and Jen’s calming, non-judgemental and personalized teaching style. I would recommend this retreat to anyone, anywhere, that needs a break from stress and a chance to work on self care and healing. Thank you for giving me this experience that I will treasure and build on.”

JUICING FOR AILMENTS
“In the past fasting has been impossible due to migraine headaches. I was nervous that would happen but it didn’t! I specifically liked the combo of gentle yoga with the juicing. A couple of times I felt headaches coming on and they would disappear after the yin yoga practice. I feel extremely nourished and alive in my body, and clearer in my head. I would absolutely recommend this retreat as a great cleanse for body, mind and soul.”

I've found this retreat to really target healing in my body - alignment, strength, flexibility issues I hadn't realized were so present. And I've had the chance to yoke my mind a bit :) I would absolutely recommend this retreat! For the intelligence of the practice, the terrific skillfulness of the teachers and the neat fusion of traditions."~ Alysha Jones

“I was a little worried about my blood sugars but it was all good. I had the realization that I can do a fast (and survive) and feel good. I also loved all the yoga. I have a sense of wellness and I’m excited to re-start and incorporate some of what I have learned right away. I believe anyone can benefit from this retreat because the staff have such a passion for what they do. It made the entire process understandable and real. It allowed me to attain a goal I didn’t know I could. Looking forward to doing more retreats to help me stay grounded and centred.”
