What people are saying about Be Balanced Retreats

Wye Yoga Retreat

My sister & I highly recommend Donna’s Wye River Yoga Retreats, since meeting Donna in 2012 we have attended many fulfilling retreats and gained much knowledge through our spiritual journey together.

Donna is an excellent teacher, with a cheerful happy manner.

Explaining all the yoga movements clearly before you attempt an asana, takes the time to explain how to position and focus on each part of your body.

Donna is very encouraging, makes you feel confident, relaxed and is passionate with her instructions, background knowledge on yoga asanas.

Her Caring, spiritual manner is wonderful, she has a good vibe all day long and is grounded.

The ocean view is a calming companion, delicious, healthy, hearty meals which Donna prepares herself, my favourite homemade minestrone soup with cheese, tomato and spinach toasties.

We thank Donna for a wonderful journey, her friendship and her fun.

Dell and Julie.
