” From me – a BIG  thank you to Anna – who makes this great week possible.  Nothing is too much trouble for Anna – which makes this a special week for all those who attend.

And thank you to Cate – who makes sure we all get some personal art attention and create something we never thought we could do…

And thank you to Erin who- well –  is just the most amazing yoga teacher EVER!

It was my second time on the art and yoga retreat and I have already booked myself and my daughter Claire for next year! “

” It was a wonderful week in Bali. Thank you for sharing your beautiful villa – it is an amazing building in a fantastic location.  The view from the yoga deck and the ocean waves are truly memorable.  I should have been focusing of the breath, but was often distracted by the views.   Cate and Erin were truly inspirational teachers.  I hope to find some time to practice both yoga and painting. “
