The entire staff at Oneworld Retreats embraces each member of the retreats like family for the week. Karina’s extensive yoga background was invaluable in deepening our yoga and meditation practice. All of the Balinese rituals were so very magical and truly a highlight of the entire retreat. Thank you for a truly wonderful retreat! It was so nice we had the flexibility in our schedule due to the rain. I will definitely look into future retreats, as well as recommend to friends.
