About Isabelle Du Soleil
“Joining Isabelle on her Energetic Vinyasa Flow Yoga Retreat was an incredible both athletic and spiritual experience. Her style of teaching yoga and meditation was appropriate for both the beginners and the experienced within our newly formed community of participants. Several hours of yoga a day was complemented with the nightly meditation sessions. Isabelle clearly took great care in choosing the location of the retreat, which served as the ideal backdrop to the experience. Ocean waves could be heard throughout the accommodation 24 hours a day, even from the Jacuzzi which we relaxed in between the sessions. Isabelle is a caring and supportive guide to deepening your yoga practice through one of her well-planned and mindfully executed retreats.”
