TESTIMONIALS from Haramara Radiance Retreat April 2018:

"This was a wonderful retreat, Chelsea.  You are awesome!  Thank you for all of the love, thought and energy you give to making this such a beautiful experience for all.  Such a wonderful group this year and last... open, kind, interesting, inspirational at every age."

"Chelsea encompasses all the elements (yoga, food, location, etc) in her retreats.  Her open, calm, methodical approach makes for a well organized retreat.  Her grounding personality/energy is infectious and her charismatic approach/demeanor makes me keep coming for more.  Thank you for everything, Chelsea."

"At first I was hesitant to go because of the price point.  Once I arrived and experienced it from the first full day, that did not matter.  Thank you for helping me express and release my struggles.  This retreat has done a lot for my mind and body and has been good for building self confidence.  I know I'll be taking a lot home with me.  Great location, even better company.  Can't thank you enough."

"You are an amazing teacher.  Thank you for everything!"

"I loved how welcome you made us feel {both} advanced and beginners.  You are awesome."

"Chelsea provided a great retreat that had yogic and spiritual activities. The atmosphere is friendly and open and appropriate for all yoga practices.  She picks beautiful locations and has activities I never would have tried on my own, e.g. sweat lodge, mala making, gong bath."

"All was fantastic, great experience!"

"The best retreat, thank you Chelsea for an amazing experience."

"So much fun, thank you Chelsea!"

"The retreat exceed my expectations!  It had a great balance of yoga, meditation, free time and offered other fantastic, organized experiences.  I was able to get more physically limber, mentally focused and grounded.  I finshed a book and started another.  I collected seashells, and put my toes in the sand (though I live in San Diego I never have time to go to the beach).  I learned a new skill and can now repair my fiance's mala necklace.  I have a beautiful mala necklace of my own to rmeind me of my 'truth and expressions.'  And best of all, I met you and all the other wonderful yogis and was able to spend some quality time with my friends.  I would rate the retreat a 6 out of 5 stars!  It truly was a wonderful experience, and we are excited to join you at future retreats."

"Chelsea, I just wanted you to know that the yoga retreat was awesome!! So rich in its variety...such nice people...thank you!"

"Chelsea is a gifted instructor, retreat facilitator and wise woman; I loved this retreat!  Yoga classes allowed for all levels with excellent instruction.  The days were spacious and allowed for personal and social time as well as exploring or retreating.  The food and service were exceptional and the natural setting and beauty – breathtaking.  Chelsea created a warm, friendly environment and attracted an open and welcoming group.  I highly recommend Chelsea’s reatreats!"
