A wonderful experience and exceeded my expectations. Martine was a great yoga leader and very inspiring. The staff at Oneworld Retreats from the pre-booking to leaving were absolutely great. The smiles were the best part. Desy was amazing throughout the week and it was lovely meeting her. Looking forward to coming here again.

When I first signed up I truly did not know what to expect. This retreat went above and beyond my expectations. I recommend A Life of Balance for anyone looking to work on certain areas they feel they would like to improve whether it be physically, emotionally or spiritually. We all need balance in life. This retreat is all about self empowerment and self improvement. Desy and Martine truly made this retreat.
