    "I just had a wonderful weekend in Ojai, California with some very special people! Erika is an amazing planner and implementer, while having fun with us. Lauren is such a gifted yoga instructor, and leads with much love, moving music, and a gentle voice. Chef Robin is a master chef and prepared beautifully healthy, flavorful gourmet meals for us. Kirra moved us into deep thought about what it meant to be alive! Such a special time with very special people!! This is a gorgeous, peaceful place for a retreat!"

    "This is my fourth Yoga retreat, facilitated by all different retreat companies, and I would have to say Erika and Blissed Yoga Retreats is above par. I felt well taken care of and the retreat went seamless. The yoga teachers were able to focus on Yoga and Blissed did exactly what is in their title... created a Blissed out state for the attendees and the teachers."

    "I thoroughly enjoyed my first Yoga retreat with Blissed Yoga Retreats. Everything was handled both professionally and personally. It was a terrific experience. My Yoga instructors, Travis Eliot and Lauren Eckstrom are not only fabulous Yoga instructors, but an incredible Team that made this retreat (with their style, knowledge and generosity) an amazing life experience. The combination of Blissed Yoga Retreats, Travis and Lauren, this retreat/vacation was a trip filled with warm memories. I highly recommend Blissed Yoga as the "go-to" for any of your Yoga retreats."

  • Review by Christi Nonnemaker from California

    "Thank you Blissed Yoga Retreats for a fabulous retreat experience! I just returned from Koh Samui, Thailand with Jamie Horgan and had the best time. This was the most well-run yoga retreat I've been on thus far - I appreciated the organization of the Blissed Yoga Retreats team and the fact that I didn't have to think about anything or do any planning. Not only did the Blissed Yoga Retreats team lead an amazingly well organized retreat, but they were also extremely committed to ensuring everyone was comfortable and creating an inclusive environment. The genuine passion of the Blissed Yoga Retreats team was evident in all aspects of the retreat, including pre and post retreat interactions. "

    "The retreat itself was so wonderful and exactly what I needed. I came back feeling refreshed, renewed, and more open. Highlights included: daily yoga with Jamie (her signature vinyasa flow classes + yin classes which she doesn't currently teach in LA studios), sharing the experience with great people/making new friends, relaxing, great setting/views/serene atmosphere at the resort, healthy food, Kori was amazing at organizing and making everyone feel comfortable, and fun excursions."

    "Most importantly I'm grateful for the community built on this retreat. I've been going to Jamie's classes for seven years now and continue to be inspired by her teaching, outlook on life, and ability to connect to her students. In addition to spending the week alongside an inspiring teacher, the experience was enhanced by the dedication of the Blissed Yoga Retreats team and their passion to create a yoga community as well as an unforgettable experience. Finally, I'm thankful for all the wonderful people I was able to meet and befriend on this retreat. In the beginning of the retreat Jamie stated that 'the perfect group always comes together' and she was so right! "

    "Looking forward to many more Blissed Yoga Retreats adventures in the future!"

    "From the time I booked to when I returned home, Daily Bliss was there every step of the way. They made the trip an effortless adventure full of wonderful experiences. Their attention to detail allowed the group to completely enjoy the location, yoga, and each other. While I will always be partial to the yoga retreat with Goldie Graham in Costa Rica, you can’t go wrong with Daily Bliss."

  • Review by Brogan from United States

    "As a guy who isn’t too serious about yoga, I went into this retreat unsure of what I was getting into. After the first day at the beach, listening to the monkeys, and taking warm classes in the jungle air, I was ready to go back to this exact location every single year of my life. There is something about the look and feel of a place like La Cusinga, you must travel there to truly understand how amazing it really is."

    "I had the most wonderful trip to La Cusinga with the other people. Everyone was so friendly. We shared so many giggles while we had adventures. The food was awesome for me to my dietary needs. The kitchen staff, Christian and Augustin, were super helpful and supportive. I would go again in a minute if I had a chance. My roommates are new best friends. Thank you from the bottom of my yogi heart."

    "This was my first time going on a yoga retreat and it exceeded all of my expectations. The location in Ojai was beautiful! Erika was a phenomenal coordinator making sure everything ran smoothly. Heather was a wonderful instructor and Megan prepared amazing meals each day. What more could you ask for. I will definitely be going on another one with Daily Bliss."

  • Review by Ollie from United States

    "I went on one of Erika’s retreats to Sayulita, Mexico, which was a big deal because I didn’t know Erika or the instructor before signing up. I couldn’t have been any more lucky. Erika organized an amazing trip, and the yoga teacher she worked with, Heather Archer, was one of the best I’ve ever had. Erika was highly communicative and responded to all my questions, made the process very easy, and was also great fun on the trip too. Definitely go one of the Daily Bliss Retreats!"

  • Review by Amy from United States

    "I just came back from a fantastic retreat in Sayulita, Mexico with Daily Bliss Yoga and Paul Teodo leading the yoga. Paul’s classes in the morning were strong, sweaty and fun, with amazing music to start off the day right. His evening classes were the real treat for me, though chilled-out yin classes with lots of meditation and live guitar. During the day, we surfed, hiked, SUP’d and ate fish tacos like it was going out of the style."

    "There was also an amazing masseuse that Daily Bliss works with who quite literally changed our lives. We had breakfast and dinner at the hotel, and the meals were perfectly tailored for the diverse eating habits of our group, with vegans, gluten-free and vegetarians munching happily alongside us omnivores. Every step of this trip was smooth, stress-free and fun – just what a retreat should be. For the first time, I came back from my vacation without needing to recover from my vacation!"

    "What an amazing time I had at the Hawaii Daily Bliss Retreat. This was a trip of a lifetime. The accommodations were lovely, Lumeria Maui is gorgeous without being too over the top plush. I loved it there. The grounds were pristine and the food they served was delicious. Having the meals served as a buffet was perfect for choosing what and how much you want. Yum!"

    "The excursions were super fun too. Lots of thought went into the details of this trip. I appreciated that very much. It was wonderful how great the group got along too. Daily Bliss rocked this trip for me. Great job on everything and 10 stars all the way!"
