Griffins Hill Yoga Retreat is a five-star experience. I feel at home the minute I step through the door. The views, the other guests and Clara the Corgi all combine to assure me that I will, once again, tune into tranquility during my stay. That is why I keep coming back. Each day, on my yoga mat, I remember what matters: breathing and gently giving my body the strength and stretching it needs. Frank is a warm and funny teacher, making us reach for our best, but inviting our laughter along the way. The wonderful meals are such a treat. We all gasp and ooh and aah as the plate are presented, and then we are into it, chatting and chomping. Forget Golden Door. Come to Griffins Hill Yoga Retreat to come home to yourself.
