Yoga / Wellness



What people say from the Santorini, Greece retreats...

The retreat was literally an awakening! I was in transition, and it helped me to shift into what felt right, enabling me to pursue something new I didn’t think I had the courage to do. I realized you CAN have the life you want, just by redefining what matters most to you in your life. That was the start of it all - I changed my career because of the retreat! Grateful to Cynthia for creating a community and safe space just to relax and flow. It opened up so much abundance and got me to exactly where I am here and now - more aligned than ever!"

"...Theres a lot of little moments for introspection, to connect with other people, as well journaling and reflecting on who you want to be, and where you want to go... You decide your adventure."

“I had a few light bulb moments in areas I was struggling with in my own life. Cynthia’s retreats made me realize what it’s like to have adventure in your life. That was the biggest eye opener – I want to continue moving. I don’t want to be stagnant. If you’re looking for a really great time or after something different outside of your comfort zone, I highly recommend Cynthia!”

The feeling people take away

“What Cynthia does is extraordinary. Her retreats are filled with surprises, love and care for the people and the places we are in. We just did a Christmas retreat and it was magical to connect with other people, and part of the reason we did that was because of the incredible experience that she facilitates. I spent my last week having an amazing time. I had experiences I’d never imagined when I booked this yoga retreat. It was magical in so many ways.”

"Cynthia’s Bali retreat was exactly what the doctor ordered! The villa we were housed in was an oasis set in the paradise that is Bali. Cynthia was generously accommodating in ensuring we had enough time and activities to explore Bali, while still getting our yoga fix in. While scaling volcanos and dipping in hot springs, a sense of genuine community was formed between all the yogis as well. It was wonderful being surrounded by such a diverse but welcoming group of beautiful individuals. This retreat was one that rejuvenated and nourished my body, mind, and spirit - leaving me inspired and excited for all there is to come!"

“Cynthia’s Christmas Retreat in Bali was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life thus far. I am so grateful to have met everyone on it. I still talk about that Christmas surprise. The hike and silent disco. I’ve never cried so many tears of joy!

I can’t even explain how amazing the retreat was. I rave about Cynthia’s retreats to everyone who asks, and those who don’t! Not only was she amazing, the energy she and her friends brought was spectacular. It was my first solo trip, and I made friends for life and memories I will never forget. I cannot wait to join another one of her retreats!”

“This past week was surreal to me... the entire experience just exceeded any expectations I could have had. Cynthia's retreats cater to people of all walks of life without any judgement.”

“I recommend this retreat to everyone. It’s not just a vacation, it’s a whole transformation of thinking outside your lens. This retreat is for anyone who needs to widen their perspective in an encouraging place. This is exactly where you will find it.”

Karen Wu | Malaysia 2018

“Going on one of Cynthia's retreats was the highlight of 2017 for me. Cynthia attracts the most amazing people to them because of her easy going personality and positive vibes and because of that, her retreats will always be filled with people who are open to trying new things, visiting new places, and meeting new people. She is an amazing yoga instructor who gives clear and easy to follow instructions for beginner yogis but can also challenge the more advanced ones too!"

“The Santorini retreat was so incredible! This trip was truly life changing in all the best ways. Santorini was so magical, and meeting Cynthia felt so comfortable, like I was meeting a long lost sister. The retreat helped me to shift into what felt right for me. I was going through a transition and the experience inspired me to pursue something new I didn’t think I had the courage to do. I completely changed my career because of the retreat, so I am grateful to Cynthia for creating community and a safe space to be, relax, and flow! And it was also just a great healing experience. So much room for abundance opened up for me. It was all something that needed to happen, to get to exactly where I am here and now.

"The retreat was a very intimate and soulful experience, full of activities that engage one soulfully. The necessary conditions were present for one to get in the mood for fun-filled self discovery and mindfulness."

"I took part in Cynthia's yoga retreat in Bali and I couldn't have been happier with my experience and the ambience of the retreat. Our villa was amazing and I felt like being spoilt but also homely from the very beginning. Besides the villa and all the yoga, I also loved all the other activities Cynthia planned, such as getting purified in holy water at a Water Temple, energy healing and climbing a volcano at 4am for sunrise. There was never a dull moment - and if you felt too tired, taking a nap instead of taking part in anything was always allowed!"

“One of the highlights of the retreat was that it wasn’t just yoga based. I like the fact we did other activities as well. We had a fantastic time climbing the mountain. And giving back to the community was really special. Cynthia did an amazing job bringing so much together.”
