  • I enjoyed all content from Asana, Pranayama, Philosophy, Meditation, Anatomy and Alignment. Most of it could have not been learned online or reading books only. It has been an honour learning from two Masters as Farrah and Reshy and I hope to transfer these learnings truthfully. The setting was magical and the schedule well thought of. The food was excellent. The group was empowering and this was the most transformational experience of my life.
