What some clients are saying...

The retreats that Rhona offers are exceptional. From the care she takes in choosing a location, to the detailed planning for invidual needs as far as food and accommodations, to the yoga/pilates and meditation classes she offers. Rhona's classes are carefully tailored for every ability level. I highly recommend Rhona's retreats.

My recent retreat to Aegialis in Greece turned out to be everything that I had hoped for and more.   The Resort was 5 Star in every aspect.  Rooms with ocean views, outstanding meals prepared fresh from their onsite gardens, the spa and pool area were so tranquil and relaxing. 

However, the highlight for me was the Yoga classes we attended lead by the professionalism and knowledge of Rhona Parsons.  This lady has dedicated the last 26 years of her life to helping people and enhancing your quality of life.  Her wealth of knowledge is endless when it comes to health and fitness.  Rhona is very passionate about her classes and her love for health and wellbeing in all aspects of life is very evident.  We were also privy to meditation sessions as well at the end of our yoga.  Rhona's selection of this particular location could not have been more perfect.   

 

Going to Greece was one of the top things on my bucket list and to be able to not only go there and enjoy all the beauty that it has to offer, but to be able to feel such a spiritual, mind, body and soul experience was like nothing I have ever witnessed. 

It truly was a reset for what is important in life.

My first yoga retreat will not be my last!  We had an amazing time with Rhona at the Aegialis Hotel and Spa on Amorgos.  The whole experience was wonderful.

 

I especially loved our gorgeous yoga studio overlooking the ocean, lit with candles and incense every morning and afternoon.

 

Rhona did a fantastic job of teaching to all of the levels in our group, and I can’t say enough about her knowledge and teaching ability. Any retreat with her would be rewarding.
