"I've been on 2 very different retreats with AY and both were unforgettable experiences. I spent a long weekend in Cornwall and then ventured overseas to Costa Rica!! The AY team are incredible. What I love most is that you don't even realise they are working most of the time, they just feel like one of the gang! But they really look after you. The retreats are a perfect balance of yoga and fun adventure. The yoga is inspiring. The food... Well what can I say... Spectacular!!! Can't wait until my next trip" 🤸🏼♂️🧘🏼♂️
