Here’s a review from 2019’s ‘Radiant Health & Happiness Retreat’:

“My mother at 68 years, drew my attention to Kathryn’s book ‘Everyday Kundalini’ after she had been carrying it with her and using it. I purchased a copy of the book and listened to Kathryn’s Kundalini Mantra Meditations CD. In the summer I attended a Yoga festival where Kathryn was hosting a class. The class flew by quickly, as I did not have time to think of anything else other than doing the Kundalini practice and following Kathryn’s teaching points. I enjoyed the whole experience.

In 2019 Mum and I attended one of Kathryn’s retreats on the Greek Island of Amorgos. The setting and Kathryn’s teaching was exceptional. As well, Kathryn’s choice of music combined with the practices made the Kundalini Yoga classes even more effective. Kathryn planned the retreat perfectly. We had enough time for everything, including exploring the Island, relaxing in the beautiful surroundings and making use of the hotel’s facilities. The staff in the hotel were professional and friendly, and we had sea views from our clean, light and airy bedrooms. Nothing was too much trouble in terms of preparing vegan alternatives to the menu either. As a Yoga teacher I continue to be inspired by Kathryn’s exemplary teaching of Kundalini Yoga for myself. I would highly recommended others to experience it on a retreat, her workshops or by attending her classes.” – Eloise
