    "Deborah was wonderful. She takes care of her chicks like a mother hen. The location of the hotel was perfect for walking to the beach, shops, etc. I hope to do it again."

  • Review by Julie Snyder from Ohio, USA

    "Everything went smoothly and even when the weather didn't cooperate, there was a back-up plan to meet everyone's yoga needs. I enjoyed staying in the boutique hotel versus a busy mainstream one. Casa del Mar was just right for my needs, and the location was perfect. I was very happy to be able to experience different types of yoga, and different yoga venues. Yoga on the beach is nothing short of amazing. As far as the planning and prep, I appreciated the quick responses to emails, and the information to prepare for the retreat. I also liked the transportation that was available throughout my time there. I plan to come back. Thank You."

  • Review by Michelle Jackson from Alabama, USA

    "First of all I will say that Deborah was amazing, and so accommodating. She was on top of everything from having transportation provided, and always readily available to providing wonderful yoga classes. The experience on that end was great. I was able to meet some wonderful ladies, take a variety of classes. and make some great memories. Even when the rain cancelled several of our classes, Deborah made sure we were enjoying another class somewhere indoors at the last minute. I had to leave a day early for personal reasons and she made sure I could squeeze in one more class the day I was leaving which was awesome. If there was a negative to my retreat it would have been my room. I was disappointed in the quality of my room. There was mold in the refrigerator, a very loud window A/C unit that I had to turn off at night to sleep, a loud refrigerator, and no hot water in the shower (which was tended to quickly and it was a matter of how to turn the knob, they were getting a plumber out to fix that). Other than the room, I thoroughly enjoyed my first yoga retreat, and will be taking more in the future. I'm hooked."

  • Review by Nina from UK

    "My retreat was exactly what I needed. I wanted to be able to have time for myself and yet not feel alone, to get away from hoards of people and noise and practice a gentle yoga a few times a day, if I wished. Or laze around a quiet pool. Deborah provides all of this and more, she is there for you when you want company, and has a great community of people around her. I will definitely do another retreat with Stress Less Yoga!"

  • Review by a traveller from Connecticut, USA

    "Deborah of Stress Less Yoga arranged a personal yoga retreat for me, which was very well coordinated and highly beneficial. It included private yoga on the beach at sunset, meditation sessions with guided imagery, massage/acupuncture (that part was extra), and sunrise yoga. Deborah did a great job coordinating and also served as a life stress management coach, given her experience in that area for the corporate world. Would highly recommend the experience, whether going solo or as part of a small group!"

    "Omg last night was fantastic. Experienced the real reason why we live in Florida, enjoying the outdoors while getting in touch with your inner self and taking care if your temple all at the same time. Deborah and get staff were wonderful. I'll be back for the next beach yoga event. Loved it and highly recommended."

    "Deborah, thank you for your wonderful hospitality and an amazing weekend. People have noticed that I am more relaxed. I am trying to keep Mr. Angry Pants out of my head with my shield, and focusing on everything that is wonderful in my life. This was definitely a life changing experience. I will be passing along your information as I have friends that I know would love it. Can't wait until our next adventure."

    "Missing you. I've been minding my thoughts and discarding the negative ones - even the road rage ones. So far, so good, not 100% but I'm working on it. The experience that you created changed my life - for the much better! So glad our paths intersected. You're stuck with me too."

    "I really enjoyed my stay at South Florida Yoga Retreats! The staff was super helpful and friendly and always made sure I had a great time. The schedule was created to my likes. I am not a fan of Hot Yoga for instance, so Deborah amended the plan accordingly and it worked out well, I got to experience a variety of different classes that I would not have explored by myself. I will be back!"

  • Review by Irina from NYC, USA

    "I had a wonderful time at the retreat. Both Deborah and Bernadette were wonderful hosts and great company. The accommodations were excellent. I had a variety of yoga experiences (full moon and sunrise yoga on the beach, hot and warm yoga, hip openers, etc.) meditation and reiki massage. The schedule was exactly what I was looking for. Deborah was very flexible and planned out the classes giving me enough opportunity to rest and explore the city. All classes were great for any level of experience. I really enjoyed the full moon and sunrise classes on the beach. It was also wonderful to meet Deborah's friends and watch the cruise ships depart. I thought everything was absolutely perfect and well planned and really have no suggestions for improvement."

    "I had never done yoga on the beach at sunrise. Actually, I had never been on the beach at sunrise. The opportunity to experience the sun rising, a heart pumping workout, and such beautiful scenery is so special. I highly recommend it!"

    "I took a couple of friends to the last full moon class. It was my first yoga class ever and it was amazing! Oh wow, it was just so beautiful. It is a great group of people who take this class. I felt great. My friends and I will be all be back for the next moon class."

  • Review by Kellye from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA

    "I am amazed at what a few weeks of attending this class has done for me. I feel so balanced in mind, body, and spirit. I had been seeing an orthopedic for back issues. I advised him that I had started doing yoga. He told me there was nothing better that I could do than yoga. The exercises he had given me were very similar to the yoga stretches we do in class. A few weeks later, no pain, no meds, and no doctors appointments. This class and instructor are great. Go at your own pace in this class so if you have never done yoga before, this is the perfect starting point! Thank you Debbie!"

  • Review by Heidi from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA

    "For yogis or beginners and those in between, experiencing Deb's yoga class is a must! Her guided in-depth knowledge of the practice, coupled with her spiritual union, your mind, body, and spirit are rejuvenated! Deborah's positive outlook and great sense of humor are added bonuses. She's right on target! As a yoga Instructor myself and lifestyle balance coach, I recognize all of the details and connections! Give yourself this opportunity to have the experience. In-joy! Namaste."
