What Others Say About Their Experience
"I am a pretty wound up kind of guy... I was really not prepared at how powerful this guided meditation was going to be.
What really surprised me at the end of the afternoon session was this part when you actually let go into the nothingness. I was really not prepared at how powerful this part was going to be. That really spoke well to your instruction and to the way that you progressed in that instruction in the way that gave that outcome at the end. That was surprising to me because I would say I am a pretty wound up kind of guy and it takes something for me to get relaxed into the world of nothing. I thought coming to the retreat was very practical and it was worthwhile and I would do it again."

"Before the retreat, I was feeling overwhelmed with too many responsibilities. After the retreat, I felt the sense of calm that things were not bothering me as much anymore. The Yoga Nidra that Yulia leads is very special and it is really the heart of the retreat. What makes the Yoga Nidra so special is that it’s like a juicy powered nap plus meditation combined. You feel so nurtured and rested and it’s a very deep space of rest and meditation. You are just lead through the whole thing. And the whole retreat is lead very beautifully. You are just so taken cared of. I felt so nurtured and relaxed through the whole thing. The space in which it happens is amazing for you to go deep and rest and get a safe space to let go and relax.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed with life being so busy and to push ourselves a little too far, and say yes I’m going to do one more extra thing, one extra thing. We have the built up adrenal fatigue from pushing ourselves too hard in life. These retreats and Yoga Nidra help us recharge our batteries, restore our energy levels so you can come back to life with your full energy and be at your best.

"This retreat was a catalyst in me getting closer toward my authentic self and what I want in my life. Before participating in “Restore Your Balance” retreat I felt stressed out because of work. I loved the Yoga Nidra that allowed me the rest that I needed and I was able to feel more relaxed than I had felt in months.
I would say if you are on a fence, just think about when was the last time you did something for yourself and how much have you invested into yourself lately because I can tell you from personal experience it was really great for me.
There is a part of myself that I tend to ignore when I am not listening and with Yulia’s Yoga Nidra I really was able to check in with that and tune into that small voice inside of me that needed to tell me some things that I had been skimming over previously. Well, I’ve made some pretty drastic changes in my life after this retreat and I have to say I believe this retreat was a catalyst in me being able to delve deeper into those changes, getting closer toward my authentic self and what I want in my life and say no to the things that were keeping me from that part of myself that I had missed.”
