Retreat Testimonials


Aww. You guys.

"Unforgettable!" --Robert

 "Here is the short and sweet. Every member of your yoga posse was phenomenal and contributed in extraordinary ways: the nourishing food, the lessons, the asanas, the deep connection with others, the mind-blowing breathing exercise, the remote beautiful location, the fascinating people, the well-organized agenda, the diverse music, the tears, the laughter, the professional heart-felt insight, the eye-opening transformation, the poetry: WOW! I feel like I have a much greater respect for my mind and body. I learned a lot about myself and walked away with clarity, motivation, humility, understanding, appreciation, strength, guidance, self-love, compassion, excitement, hope, and peace.Thank you Laurence Walsh-Hodson, Meredith Sarah Klein, Kel Clement, and Chaz Yoga for sharing your gift with me and others." --Mark Astemborski


​"On Chaz's retreat I was INFUSED with LOVE, DEFUSED of my inner pain. I was INSPIRED by the heart-filled yogis and I CONSPIRED with each and every one to create self love from self doubt. I was EXERCISED with joy filled asana and EXORCISED by breathwork with Laurence that removed a deep sense of remorse. I was FED with mindful food choices that added to my 30 day cleanse and it went straight to my HEAD as Meredith Sarah Klein shared ideas on mindful eating. I SANG out my devotion to Shiva, Kali Durga, Lakshmi and my greatest potential, doing battle for peace on the battleground of my mind and feeling a sense of abundance for my family, health, gratitude, gifts of my life. I had no idea what the possibilities held for me on this healing retreat. The power behind communities of healing are beyond any expectations. We can do it together one Chaz Yoga Retreat at a time. Thank you sister for guiding me into a space of love and infinite gifts. I treasure you and all the yogis and teachers on the Chaz Yoga retreat."--Holli Rabishaw, of Holli Yoga

I am so grateful that I got to experience this at a time when I was losing faith in the yoga community and the retreats they led...You are an amazing guide because you embody that truth and let it all are WITH us every step of the way. I have rarely found that and I am forever grateful. I can't wait until the next retreat..." --Cindy
