I loved everything about the retreat! It has opened my mind to different ways of thinking about my body, food, outlook on the "diet" word. I have found new meal ideas and food not tried before that were delicious.  I am learning to enjoy the journey!

I have lost 20 pounds since the retreat and I don't feel like I am depriving myself, but feeding my body better and, in turn, I feel better about myself because I am more in control of what I am putting in my body.

"I truly enjoyed being with all three women (Genét, Audrey, & Missy) and the expertise they brought with them. I feel like I have a starting place to build in the three areas (body wisdom, yoga, and meditation). I loved Genét talking at the food counter and sharing her experience. I also loved seeing the way she incorporated simple foods into a lovely presentation. I loved the versatility of quinoa! I would definitely recommend a Root & Branch retreat to others!"

"Amazing! [The retreat] exceeded my expectations. Everything was so rich. The location was fantastic and really helped create a conducive atmosphere and energy. I loved the classes and the synergistic experience from the trio of classes as well as the group of women and the closeness we all now have. I feel so enriched. Thank you!"

"A fantastic experience! An amazing house. It met all my expectations and hopes... The food was sensational. The bonding [of the group] was so special and the classes were life changing. It wasn't all new to me, but it's so helpful to do it in this setting with great people."

-- Melody A.

I thoroughly enjoyed the retreat at the beach recently.  I expected that it would be relaxing and enjoyable, but it really did exceed my expectations.  The healthy food was delicious, the yoga classes a reminder how much I love yoga and the meditation a new experience.  Each of the instructors were well informed, interesting and quite professional.  They made each class fun and informative. They put you at ease no matter your age, fitness or knowledge of that particular subject.  They were pros at getting the group to gel and feel comfortable.

The energy at the retreat was very positive and uplifting.  It was motivating to improve ourselves, to improve relationships and our lives. It was wonderful.
