Testimonials from Yoga Retreat Participants
I have enjoyed two of Mary Paterson’s exquisite yoga retreats, and both times experienced a truly blissful and empowering week of yoga, sun, good food, and engaging company. To start each day with the benefits of kundalini yoga, and to then be able to dive into the beauty of nature at your very feet, is an unbeatable combination. Mary is a very special and skilled yoga teacher and I recommend her retreats wholeheartedly to anyone looking for health and renewal in their lives. And did I mention great fun, too?

Being on retreat with Mary is a life altering experience. She competently and powerfully guides you through your yoga practice and leads beautiful meditations. I have been on four retreats with this wonderful teacher and each time I work more deeply, relax faster and trust that all logistical (and spiritual) details are taken care of. Every retreat has had a profoundly positive and long lasting effect on my life. Sun, sand and surf ~ yoga, luscious food and great people. I am an ever-grateful participant. Thank you Mary!

When I first started kundalini yoga with Mary Paterson at Lotus Yoga over 10 years ago, little did I know how transformational the practice would be. Mary’s unique style of teaching is a powerful vehicle for anyone wishing to transform their inner and outer lives. Mary provides a safe haven for deep physical, emotional and spiritual healing, be it in her studio classes or on her yearly retreats. Mary teaches with great compassion, clear insight, grace and strength guiding her students to higher levels of awareness.

I have been on two retreats in Costa Rica and they truly were transformational experiences. Mary is a powerful teacher who creates a warm, nurturing environment for everyone. You are transported to a sanctuary, where you let go of the world, relax and sink into the natural beauty that surrounds you. Every day you wake up to wonderful yoga and meditation classes, delicious food, delightful company, and any number of fun and fascinating excursions. Regardless of whether you are new to the practice, or are a seasoned yogini, the benefits are immense – both physically and spiritually. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

It has been my privilege and good fortune to have attended one of Mary’s yoga retreats. I went looking for relaxation and rejuvenation. I found both – and a lot more. The location was spectacular, the company was delightful, the yoga and meditation enlivened my body, mind and spirit, the food was delicious and I slept better than I had in the previous eight years. Mary is a gifted teacher and guide and I wholeheartedly recommend her retreats.

Mary’s yoga retreats are deeply relaxing and rejuvenating. The locations are breathtaking, the food is healthy and delicious, there are exciting and adventurous day trips offered, the people are lovely, and of course the daily yoga classes and meditations are exceptional. Mary is a great organizer and everything always runs so smoothly. I look forward to many more retreats in the future.
