Testimonials from attendees of Earth Living Festival 2019:

“Wonderful job! Thank you so much for letting us spend a really relaxing and at the same time energizing day filled with good vibes!”

“I couldn’t stop smiling during the festival and hours later. It was absolutely wonderful.”

Testimonial from Yoga Retreat at Monkton Wyld Court, 2018

“I’ve been doing yoga now for nearly 2 years I think, and hadn’t appreciated what a hold it would take on me. When the opportunity to go on a yoga retreat came along I was really unsure of what to expect and whether I would enjoy it. But, it was amazing! The weekend was full of opportunity to relax and restore in a stunning location with some fabulous people. I have come away from the weekend with some new friends and an even greater love of yoga. I can’t wait for the next one!” – Tanya Roberts
