"A great week! The perfect blending of delicious, fresh food, interesting people, the Zen of yoga and surfing in the perfect tropical setting!"
~ P. Chin
"Doing this World Yoga Trip was the perfect way to celebrate turning 40. The gentle ocean rhythm was just what I needed! It was an incredible gift to be able to leave the stresses of everyday life behind and just focus on *me* for a change. I haven't had a chance to unwind and unplug like that in many, many years. I don't know if it was the relaxing pace, the yoga, the sunshine, the amazing food, or the inspiring company, but I returned home feeling renewed and ready to embrace whatever the next year may hold. If only I could celebrate every birthday with AYR. Thank you!"
~ J. Donahue
"Our experience in Costa Rica was extraordinary and far beyond our expectations. From the warmth of the sun and caring people our days were filled with natural beauty and yoga which is incomparable to any other experience we've had. My mom, sister and I were made to feel so welcome and relaxed it was so hard to leave such a beutiful place. We can't wait to go back! Thank you for making our experience so memorable."
