Reviews from past retreats:

"Absolutely fabulous. Beautiful island, amazing weekend. Kelly-Ann was a great host and teacher. Amazing SUP, food, sights, naps, walks, tours and yoga. Great memories, can't wait to return for another memorable weekend". ~ Darlene- Calgary AB

"Had the best weekend with Kelly-Ann! She is an amazing yoga instructor and guide to Pender Island. Made some wonderful new friends and we are already planning to rebook for next year. If you are looking for fun filled days on the water and relaxing evenings with delicious local food, then look no further". ~Kimberley- Vancouver BC

 

"Kelly-Ann is A-MAZ-ING!!! You feel at home the moment you walk in and meet her. It was such an awesome experience every second you spend there is truly magical!! If you're thinking about a SUP yoga retreat you need to book with Kelly-Ann. We did so much in the few days we spent with her but with plenty of down time to relax (a few naps happened but I blame it on bed lol sooo comfy) I can't express the gratitude I have for meeting Kelly-Ann and the other amazing ladies. We are all coming back next year and I cant wait"! ~ Vicky- Vancouver BC
