“I have had the great joy of participating in three retreats with Kathy Flaminio and Laurie Ellis-Young and am so very grateful for the experiences. Laurie and Kathy are magnificent trip leaders and facilitators of yoga, breath work, and mindfulness. I found each retreat to be profoundly transformative, both personally and professionally. I engaged in deep self-discovery and encountered new found wellness practices including meditation, breath work, chanting, and goal setting techniques that continue to positively impact my daily life. As an educator, I very much appreciated how Kathy and Laurie taught us principles of breath work and Yoga Calm alongside how to respect local cultural ways of being as we served in local school communities. Laurie and Kathy also worked to create a supportive community of retreat participants that enriched our time together and depth of understanding. highly recommend a retreat with Kathy and Laurie!”

Their authenticity and kindness makes each retreat a life-changing event. Go! You won’t regret it!”
