My friend and I attended this retreat in November. I traveled all the way from Iowa and worth every penny! From the minute we arrived we were welcomed and felt right at home! We wanted a place where we could relax, catch up and not have the hustle and bustle. A yoga culinary retreat is something we had never ever done! We are now going back in April! Why- great people, met new friends, relaxing, awesome food, fabulous yoga, and total renewal! Felt like a Queen! Kristalynn, Sue and Melissa you rock! Thank you ❤️

I just recently attended the culinary yoga retreat at summerwind and had an amazing experience. The moment i walked thru the door Kristalynn made me feel like I was at home.

Everyday we were treated to the amazing food prepared by Sue Shattuck and yoga by the wonderful Melissa Shalongo. An added bonus to this retreat i made friendships with some beautiful ladies
