"I wasn't sure what to expect when I signed up to Chill'Asana's retreat. All I knew is that I wanted a chance to disconnect from my daily grind, do some amazing yoga in a beautiful natural setting and maybe make some new friends. Not only did I get precisely that but I also reconnected with my inner self and intuition in such a profound way that I never knew could happen in the presence of absolute strangers! Thanks to the loving guidance of our retreat leaders; whose tireless efforts were matched only by their unconditional love; I felt safe and accepted on so many levels. As a result, I could release whatever blockages were holding me back from my own spiritual path. Through the kind act of our honest, no BS sharing sessions (opening/closing ceremonies, hi’s and low’s) my fellow yogi’s and I bonded and grew closer by just relating to one another in ways that I didn’t think was possible. I came to learn so much about myself through the act of just listening, and witnessing that I realized I am not alone in my personal struggles. That together when we share and accept one another no matter what, we make ourselves stronger. That by showing each other support we build newfound strength in our own characters and forgive ourselves for our failures and frailties and say that its ok! We are ok that is just life! That’s powerful and I’m so grateful for everyone that didn’t hold back and embrace the process because it was healing old wounds - at least it was for me! So awesome!
J. Krishnamurti once said that listening without judgement is not only the highest level of human intelligence but it is also the expression of love. That's exactly what we all experienced their so thank you! Haramara is such a sacred place that words just can’t describe! Without this experience, I would still be struggling, stumbling in the dark trying to find myself. I now have a fresh outlook on life, a stronger commitment to my yoga practice, 20+ new family members that I miss dearly, and a new direction to simplify my life, follow my heart and practice living what brings me joy every single day, moment to moment! Can’t wait for Chill'Asana 2018!!!! we love you Nat, Paul and Kaila!!!!! :) Stay awesome!"

"This experience completely changed my life. I was physically and emotionally rejuvenated in a priceless way." - Kim C.
"There is simply no describing the depth of connection I felt with my 35 fellow travelers, none of whom I met before last Saturday night. For those that equate yoga to a bunch of hippies sitting around chanting OM, you have no idea how far off from the truth you could be. It simply transcends description, and can only be understood through engagement with the movement, the principles, and the beautiful community that evolves." - Lacie C.
"Thank you for being so amazing. Don't change a thing about yourselves. I loved that you weren't "yoga travel experts" per se. I felt like we were ALL on a journey together figuring out how to make a magical experience. It was organic and real. Nat, you are such a force of nature. Trust your instincts; they are divine!" - MiAngel C.
"This experience was completely transformative to the well being on my soul. The connections that were made with 35 strangers from all over the United states and Canada were authentic and absent of ego. We became a family almost instantly! I felt comfortable and supported and encouraged to be my true self. I am forever grateful for Nathania, Paul and Monica because they had a vision and held their vision into its fruition. Thank you all for having the courage to dream big! I will travel anywhere to be apart of such a beautiful and brilliant team. Thank you." - Anonymous
"Cannot possibly say one negative thing - this group is amazing, this location is amazing, I wish I was still there. This experience was life changing. Miss you all!" - Anonymous
"Dear Nathania, Thank you for being you, for discovering your life's passion and for letting it shine through! You are an inspiration and a true gift to this world. As for me, I am very happy that I showed up for myself. You were ready and have anticipated my needs (without ever meeting me), and the needs of many if I might say so. You had a structured program, offered lots of options, Kaila and Paul are amazing human beings, dedicated to their craft and very gifted teachers." - Daniela C.
"Excellent' does not describe this experience. The week with the Chill'Asana team was nothing short of life-changing. It is all about bonding with incredible people, in a magical setting, while doing something healthy for your mind and soul...except better than imaginable. There is room to do everything at one's own time and pace, which is what makes this retreat truly "chill". Haramara is a place with a genuine soul, and this is exactly what I would also say about the people who run the Chill'Asana retreat. No matter how you arrive to this place, you are leaving as part of an amazing tribe. I am coming back next year." - Ksenija T.
