Testimonials 37

  • Holly D. Eugene Oregon

    Ambuja Yoga website

    I enjoyed the beautiful setting, the babbling creek, the amazing, nourishing food, the loving women who came together and most of all the yoga practice! I am very new to yoga and has some anxiety and self-consciousness going into the retreat, but Autumn and Toni and the other women made me feel so welcome. I loved the long length of the sessions. I like that nothing about this weekend felt rushed.

  • Suzanne R. Massachusetts

    Ambuja Yoga website

    I immediately grew as a yoga student because I felt empowered and supported to take risks in my practice and try poses I normally would not even attempt. I am also working on the “mental” piece of yoga and pieces of practice are helping me on this meditative journey. I have grown as a woman— I was reminded of my worth, my strength, and worthiness of love.

  • Dianne S. A

    I enjoyed the retreat’s environment of safety and acceptance as a beginner to yoga- the basic breakout session was so educational and helpful- I can’t wait to continue using the techniques at home.

  • Nanor A. CA

    I loved this retreat! I have re-learned the ability to practice with intention and give my practice the priority it deserves in my life. Thank you Autumn & Toni!

  • Tayra Q CA

    Ambuja Yoga website

    I loved the yoga classes! They really challenged my yoga practice and allowed me to do poses I was having challenges with. I realized that I can do so much more than what I give myself credit for. The location couldn’t be more amazing. The food was also really wonderful.

  • Alana R. DC

    Ambuja Yoga website

    I enjoyed the casual “vibe.” I didn’t feel pressured to do anything outside of my comfort zone.

  • Abigail C. Oregon

    Ambuja Yoga website

    I enjoyed being surrounded by kind, generous, and like minded women as well as the beauty of wild life and nature. I feel as though I am more grounded with myself as well as feeling more patient with myself and others… I hope to come back next year!

  • Christina D. OR

    Ambuja Yoga website

    All was wonderful: the community of women, location, yoga, food. I have learned to be authentic, lessened the “need to please”, learned the difference between being “nice” and kind and speaking my truth without fear. Acceptance and self love for all part of me! Love you Autumn & Toni both amazing and inspiring women. So happy to share in your journeys. Thank you.

  • Sheri D. Colorado

    Ambuja Yoga website

    I loved that this retreat was all about self love. Good food, wine, & yoga. No additional self help agenda. I learned that its so important to take the time for yourself and unplug. Autumn & Toni you are beautiful inside and out.

    I enjoyed the encouragement to listen and love your body, taking your practice at your own pace, yet allowing your body to be open enough to push to new levels as well. Very encouraging and supportive space to practice without judgement. Toni- love the way you explain and show each movement. I’ve grown as a student to allow myself to listen and trust my body and mind; in order to become more comfortable with my own journey of yoga. Autumn- you should do on tape meditation! Your voice is so calming and safe, really allowing to get into a meditative space with mind and body. THANK YOU BOTH!!!

    I’ve learned and felt the power and strength in being gentle, of using my intuition and emotions as guides to be paid attention to and acknowledged and I’ve learned that love starts with me.

  • Carrie L. Oregon

    Ambuja Yoga website

    I loved the environment and how friendly everyone was. Lots of great women supporting women— so empowering. Also, the multi-generation of ladies— very fun. I learned a lot this weekend. Asanas, style, how strong I am and how much women are a key to my growth. This weekend was perfect! I could stay longer!!!

  • Felecia W. OR

    Ambuja Yoga website

    I enjoyed the thoughtful yoga instruction in a beautiful, peaceful and serene location. The Tipi Village staff were also welcoming and wonderful. And the food! I feel like I reconnected with my body in a way I’ve been ignoring since becoming a runner/jogger. I’m re-energized and motivated to incorporate yoga into my workout routine. Thank you so much! You both are wonderful instructors.

  • Julia B. WA

    Ambuja Yoga website

    This is the most focused vinyasa series I’ve done and it makes me consider nuances in my practice (and therefore in my life) more. I loved getting info/guidance on how to do postures safely to alleviate current pain and prevent future injury, especially down dog.

  • Amelia W. OR

    Ambuja Yoga website

    I enjoyed the company, the environment, the nature, the yin yoga, all the yoga! And the love and kindness that was always present. I have grown in so many ways, but physically I feel sore, but strong! Chaturanga!!!

  • Taira S. OR

    TripAdvisor Website, edited

    I loved the tipis, food, practice, especially the yin and yoga nidra and the partner exercises. I improved my focus, awareness and meditation. Everything was basically new for me and there wasn’t a single thing I didn’t enjoy. I gained relief from my anxiety and found a new foundation within myself. I can’t thank you enough for that. I will always try to come back here in my heart and in my head when I need a reminder of where to find my inner peace… I can’t wait to return. I can’t wait to deepen my vinyasa practice.

  • Karen Z. OR

    I loved the long yoga sessions, also loved the yoga nidra (even though I fell asleep, oops!). Great venue. So many great things! Partner Poses!… I feel very centered and I hope I can continue combining a bit of meditation with my yoga practice.

    I enjoyed the whole thing! I loved the classes, the difficulty was perfect. I found my ability to relax and let go improve. Thank you for your amazing energy love and light. This was so fun, challenging and relaxing. I’m looking forward to next time.

    This retreat was certainly great! Autumn you are an awesome, fun and very informative teacher. I loved your flows and your classes! (As well as the meditation/nidra). Keep up the great retreating! I’d love to go to another led by you, Autumn!

  • Suzanne R, Massachusetts

  • Kelly D. Eugene Oregon

    Ambuja Yoga website

    I have grown as a student and instructor by reconnecting with myself and my yoga. I loved learning new things and having the opportunity to challenge myself with longer, more fulfilling practices. I can’t wait for your online course! You are so great, keep in touch!

  • Brandi, OR

    Ambuja Yoga website

    Grateful that I’m always learning new poses, techniques. I realize I’m stronger than I may think. Love everything! Please do a retreat in Bend! This was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Keep doing what you do!!

  • Whitney M, OR

    Ambuja Yoga website

    I enjoyed the laughter, love and kindness form this experience — the wonderful surroundings and food. I enjoyed the stillness I was allowed to have. I was able to push away the negative thoughts more easily. They may come back, but I am better able to focus on stillness and myself. Everything was wonderful!

  • McKenzie, OR

    Ambuja Yoga website

    I enjoyed the time spent with a group of positive, fun, and hilarious women. Letting loose and enjoying the company of women was something my soul deeply needed. The yin/restorative nidra practice was just what my body needed to rejuvenate. The nice balance of structured and unstructured time was great.

  • Jamie B., NC

    Ambuja Yoga website

    I loved how together it felt with this group of ladies. I loved working on my meditation practice because it really needs work. I also loved you because you are an amazing teacher. I think as a yoga student I have taken away how to be more present with my practice and let go of what I have to do next.

  • Maryellen F. PA.

    Ambuja Yoga website

    Autumn's yoga practice is challenging, fun, motivating and light hearted. Laughing and giggling and her smile brought me at peace. Thank you Autumn for creating a yoga practice that was challenging but lighthearted. Your smile and energy light up the yoga platform that makes the impossible, possible. Thank you for your kindness.

  • Ruth B., England

    Ambuja Yoga website

    Autumn is a breath of fresh air, unpretentious, earthy and good humored teaching.

  • Helen A., North Carolina

    Ambuja Yoga website

    This was by far the best experience I've had in a yoga class. The instructor was balanced and the classes moved along at a good pace with time for instruction, corrective criticism, and questions. I received a lot of coaching which has already enhanced my practice and improved my physical wellbeing in general. The coaching was given in such a way as to not draw attention to my needs but to highlight the benefits of doing a pose the right way. After each class I felt stronger in mind and body and excited about the growth I was experiencing in my practice. I wish I lived in Bend so I could have constant access to such a great instructor. I will have to do more retreats now!

  • Meghan B., Canada

    You thought of every detail and every expense ahead of time so that we didn't need to be concerned at all for the week. You gave us clear direction from the beginning about what to bring and what to expect. It made me feel very comfortable and trust that you had thought of it all. The bonus was the other wonderful people I got to meet along the way. It's so awesome when like minded individuals come together for a joined experience. The positivity and energy of the group made it all the better. Yoga is all about community and judging by our thread we are still sharing, we were able to build a community in only a week. One of the reasons for this was your warm, hospitable charm and passion for retreats. I thank you for all of your hard work.

  • Dave G. OR

    Two years ago, at age 60, I met Autumn. My yoga practices quickly went to a new level attending at least 5 practices per week. Autumn['s]... classes can be both subtle and rigorous.

    My interest in yoga began because of my stiff joints & bones caused by using cholesterol lowering statins for 20 plus years. Today I have the best HDL & LDL cholesterol levels since taking these medications. I am more impressed that I no longer have the stiff joint & muscle pains. What is more incredible is last year I was scheduled to have total knee replacement surgery. After 2 injections to the knee from the doctors & Autumn guiding me through my practices the Dr. decided I did not need surgery. My legs gained strength & flexibility & last year I played the best golf of my life. I also skied 35 days this season. I know this is not coincidence.

    I cannot imagine living without my yoga practices & know it will be a part of my life forever! Thank you Autumn for your consistent high level of commitment, attention & spirit.

  • Brit F. Oregon

    From the moment I booked the trip, I knew I was in good hands. Autumn made sure that all the details were covered and insured that I was comfortable throughout my first international travel experience. Everything was arranged and seamless from the moment we stepped off the plane in Managua, Nicaragua. The retreat center was serene and no matter where I was on the property at Costa Dulce, I had a view of a gorgeous beach landscape that was free of people and so peaceful. The Yoga Studio was one of the best places to take in the view; it was impossible not to have an amazing practice with the sounds of the ocean and the smell of the breeze.

    The occasional monkey spotting didn’t hurt either. Autumn was great with everyone at the retreat in her classes, spending an equal amount of time focusing on her guests and making sure everyone had the best practice tailored to their individual wants and needs. Everyone always left practice with a restful smile and a belly full of anticipation for the delicious food. Surfing was effortless with the guidance of the retreat staff and accessibility to the boards whenever we wanted them. The boogie boards were nice too, when we didn’t feel like going all out. The day activities and options they had available were also undeniably unforgettable. I chose to go on a night venture to a sea turtle reserve, and it didn’t disappoint.

    We saw different species of sea turtles hatching and making their way to the sea - never have I felt so grounded and close to the oceans natural beauty. The day trips to San Juan Del Sur to shop and experience the restaurants were also a nice way to switch it up and really take in the Nicaraguan culture. Overall, my experience with Ambuja Yoga was made by Autumn's attention to detail and ability to seamlessly plan an unforgettable retreat. I returned home with memories that will last a lifetime and the rested body and mind that I was searching for. Thanks Autumn! I had a blast!

    The day was incredible and starting the day with yoga was perfect. People keep asking me, "did it feel like a blur?" and actually, it really didn't. I felt very connected and present during the entire day and I truly believe starting the day with centering my spirit with yoga played a big part in that.

  • Lizzy Sawyer Oregon

    My bridesmaids and I had the opportunity to take a private yoga session with Autumn before my wedding in July. It was a perfect experience! My girls and I had such a great time and felt amazing after our session. Autumn was very sweet, accommodating, and knowledgeable. She even gifted me a bottle of champagne! I would recommend her in a heartbeat to any bride looking for a special experience with her bridesmaids before her big day! I give Autumn a two thumbs up!

  • Carol E. Oregon

    Ambuja Yoga website

    Autumn is so clear when she guides you through a movement. She thought of everything from beginning to end. We had an amazing venue and it married so well with the energy of our group and teacher. We enjoyed a hike with amazing mountain views (we were rewarded with a great lunch at the top), tons of yoga class time, plus time to relax and visit with others. She provided special gift bags, which I thought was so thoughtful, and a reflection of her generous nature. It was a great weekend and I am really looking forward to next year!
