    AMAZING EXPIERENCE!

    PROS Pros: Completely enjoyed the tantalizing raw food and the absoloutly amazing yoga. You are never hungry and your body is saying "thank you" "thank you". I was amazed at the creativity and culinary expertise with each meal. Presentation and flavours beyond words. My yoga improved so much over the few days. Bianca's has an amazing ability to keep us all working to a better understanding of each pose. She has this amazing ability to make each of us improve and achieve a new yoga level and enjoyment. The inner dance experience was an unexpected bonus! I would recommend this retreat to everyone. I hope to join in on another one very soon. Namaste!

    "The retreat in Mazunte, Mexico exceeded our expectations in both originality and quality. It was a beautiful introduction to new and never before experienced events. Bianca and José have a beautiful ability to render each retreat unique with their thoughtful attention to detail. The highlight of this wonderful retreat was the Cacao Ceremony- the setting, the sunset, the facilitators could not have been more perfect. And OHHH the taste of the chocolate!!"

    "I think about you every day, with such fond memories and want you to know how much you enriched my life, how you had the ability to be so non-judgmental, to listen and to share your knowledge and wisdom. I am truly grateful to have had you in my life for a short time and know that we will have an opportunity again, sometime."

    "The Art of Living Retreat helped me connect with who I am. It was the most wonderful experience that challenged me to truly think about my place in the world, and how to appreciate the beautiful things in life that sometimes go overlooked. Bianca, Jose and Sergio have the biggest hearts, and I will always cherish this experience. And the food is beyond awesome :)"

    "Bianca's mindfulness practice ushers in waves of serenity and clarity to those who practice with her. When she leads you a meditation session, the world becomes still enough to concentrate on your body and mind, and build the awareness to reach your full potential."

    "Jose is an amazing teacher and excellent chef! He has vast knowledge of food and their healing properties; he is always willing to share his learnings in a way that is simple and not forceful. Jose shows his passion for food when he speaks, and especially in his preparation and presentation of delicious healthy meals. Every meal he makes is truly a work of art! Thank you Jose for deepening my understanding of nutrition and healing through food."

    "The retreat was truly transformational. At this retreat, I learned more about myself, I experienced something out of this world, I laughed, I cried, I danced, I sang, I met my 'tribe'.....This is the type of environment that Jose and Bianca created and I do not take this for granted. I am so eternally grateful to you both for creating this beautiful experience for all of us. Thank you thank you thank you."

    "I met Bianca at the end of a one year trip around South East Asia. While I thought at the time that I had already learned so much from this experience, Bianca surely taught me the last lesson I needed to, from what I believed, complete this personal journey. She helped me understand something that for a bunch of different reasons I had missed out; my journey was actually far away from being completed, it had just begun! During her classes as well as our conversations, she created a safe inspiring space and energy that changed my days and perspective. Bianca has such a calm, understanding and compassionate presence and this comes through in her teaching. She is one of these inspiring and generous people who make you understand the challenge of self-fulfillment, the importance of being master of your own choices and life, but also the importance of sharing with others. After we met, all my concerns about “going home” had vanished; this travelling experience was not a once in a lifetime thing before getting back to my routine, it had rather helped me find the right direction to pursue my personal journey. I truly believe that people are meant to cross our path for a reason, and Bianca was there to help me develop my own self in a more colorful way which is probably the greatest gift people can give to one another."

    "I was blessed to have the opportunity to experience Bianca and Jose’s retreat in Bali in August 2015. Although I was not experienced with meditation, spirituality or raw food, I came with an open mind and left the island as a wiser and healthier version of myself. Bianca and Jose are incredibly thoughtful, caring, generous and warm-hearted people who just want to help you heal and grow. The experience helped me to reconnect with myself and helped me to remember what is actually important in life. I came out of the retreat feeling positive and determined to take my life back into my own hands, suddenly discovering the strength to deal with some big and scary decisions full heartedly and with confidence. Art of Living Retreats is a thoughtful programme that incorporates exercise, food and creativity to gently break down walls, open the mind and rediscover the heart in a beautiful, safe and relaxing setting."

    "The Art of Living was transformational. Jose and Bianca do an amazing job of integrating education and experience to leave you with not only the knowledge to take home with you, but also its application and integration into your daily life. They are both incredibly loving and supportive and are always checking in, recognizing the need for flexibility with such an individualized growth process. The Art of Living is a great option for anyone who feels like it's time for a change and is ready to explore within but might not be sure exactly where to start."
