Testimonials from Past Retreaters

"I joined Thrive Yoga on a retreat this past weekend never having been to the studio before. It was an admitted risk, but one I will never regret. Susan is an amazing person and teacher. I enjoyed all of her yoga classes and the sound bath. Most importantly was the welcoming attitude of all her students. It is clear that she has developed a strong and loving community at her studio. I wish I lived closer so that I could be a part of this Thrive Family.
~ Karen G., Casa Om Yoga Retreat Student "
"Recently I had the pleasure of doing a yoga retreat with Thrive and I couldn’t say enough great things about this wonderful studio and their amazing community. Yoga, pranayama, sound baths, and more all delivered in an accessible yet challenging way that leaves you feeling physically energized and spiritually lifted. Their community was clearly tight knit but welcomed my friend and I immediately making us feel like we had known them forever. Although I don’t live in the area I will be watching out for workshops and making special trips just to reconnect with them and myself. I highly recommend this studio. Thank you Thrive family.

"Dear Susan, Ugonma and friends:
Many thanks for a wonderful retreat. There was so much joy and learning. The group was very nice. Every night I went to bed early at 9:30 and fell into sleep listening to the lively chats and laughter and feeling very safe and at peace being around with nice people. I thought to myself: I want to spend the next 15 years with the Thrive community.
~ Hua T, Casa Om Yoga Retreat Student "
