Well there aren’t really enough words in the English dictionary to describe how truly wonderful Rosie and Natasha are at what they do. Whole and Happy is everything and more when it comes to a yoga retreat. They’re the most vibrant, loving, genuine individuals I have ever come across.

The yoga is only a part of what these girls have created.

Their energy is so infectious and everything they do comes from a total place of love. Ladies, I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve given me.  Love always and forever, Meg xxxx

I feel much more whole and wholly more happy after attending the Whole & Happy Yoga Retreat at the FaaSai Resort in Chanthaburi, Thailand. I found Natasha and Rosie’s instruction very easy to follow. Rather than being intimidated by these yoga masters, I felt safe moving from an awkward first-timer to one who found the strength to complete 108 sun-salutations on the fourth morning. That practice will stick with me. I am definitely looking to continue yoga in my private life.

The lessons I learned will greatly benefit my future journey in yoga. Keep breathing. As long as you try you are doing it right.

 

Alexandra Coutts, Australia

To have my soul ignited from simply being in the presence of two yogis (and a family of incredible retreaters) is not something I thought was possible.

I thought it took a cocktail of deep work and self reflection, bit by bit, over time. And if I stuck with that, then my body, heart, mind & soul would feel balanced and alive. Sure, this work is absolutely part of the journey, but to my wonder, after less than a week with Rosie & Tash I noticed big changes... I felt as though I literally had my soul slapped back to life! These beautiful humans exude life, love & fun. They led me back to playfulness.

I think if I were to share all of what I was nourished with during the Whole & Happy Retreat you might question my authenticity. And I might struggle to find the words for the feeling I've embodied ever since.

There is truly so much on offer, it's all available to you just by being there. So I will keep it simple and have you know that these two girls have a zest for life, an openness, an unrelenting love for the humans they cross paths with... It's something I suggest you get a taste of. Their joy is contagious. Take some magic home from the retreat & share it with those you love. I did...

 I've already been told 3 times (in 3 days, that's pretty impressive!) that I'm "lighter" and "more alive". Isn't that what we all want? 

THANKS GIRLS, I LOVE YOU xx

Eva Virtue, NZ

I do want to sing the highest praises for Rosie and Natasha and the work they’re doing… the feelings of happiness, lightness, joy, bliss and determination to carry on in my life with authenticity and taking time for myself, doing yoga or whatever feels right at that moment, has stayed with me – and will stay with me for a long time yet!

I can’t thank you enough for the week of joy, love and laughter, fun and lightness, but also deep moments of realisation on various levels… all the amazing people we see as “family” now – I would love to see you all again – and I know I will see you two again, as I will come to another retreat someday sometime... can’t wait!

Of course, I loved every bit, the yoga practices morning and evening (you’re both different and amazing in your own ways – keep being yourselves), and the “free time” in between, sometimes organised, sometimes spontaneous – can’t say what was best!

 Yoga-wise the sunrise yoga we did on top of the old castle and watching the sun come up after our 24 sun salutations, that was magical!  Otherwise I loved giving things a go I have never done before, like surfing...

Most of all it was the people, the people, the people… “He tangata, he tangata, he tangata…” as we say in Maori.

I am impressed at the depth and wisdom you guys have and show in many ways (but you don’t take it too seriously either, your balance is the best of all), I wished I was like that at your age… took me a lot longer! 

The retreat is worth every cent and more, you can’t put a price on it, just go for it and be fully present and you will get a wealth of experiences and memories and wisdom – the girls will make sure of it!

All my love, gratitude and best wishes until I see you again xoxoxoxo

Asti Farrell, NZ

I did a Whole & Happy Retreat with Rosie and Natasha in June, and it was one of the best things I have ever done. It was my first retreat and I went in a bit unsure of what to expect, but Rosie and Natasha are such beautiful souls and I immediately felt comfortable. I started the week so on edge after a whirl wind couple of months and left feeling so Whole & Happy (lol) but seriously I did!

I am still practicing yoga at home with the skills I developed from the retreat to this day.

Couldn’t recommend Whole and Happy Retreat more.

Gracie Grant, UK

This retreat showed me there is more to yoga than just physical practice.

Over the course of the retreat Rosie and Natasha opened my eyes to the power of meditation, self awareness and self love. The retreat brings together amazing people (of all abilities yoga-wise) who continually inspire and assist you in reaching your personal goals. The location was beautiful with the kindest staff you’ll ever meet! If you are ever thinking about going on a yoga retreat with incredible teachers and people, make sure it is this one – I’m sure this retreat wont be my last with Whole and Happy.

Jan Kochan, Canada

Wow! What an amazing week! Natasha and Rosie are exceptional humans. 

I had the honour of meeting such amazing people from all over the world and becoming a Whole & Happy family in just five days. We had so many laughs and tears and more laughs, bringing people together on so many levels.

I would recommend this retreat to anyone who wants to learn more about themselves, or maybe just get away from the everyday hustle and bustle and enjoy some "me" time!

Food was all vegetarian (I thought I might starve) but it was so amazing and filling . I’ve got some great recipe ideas to try now. There was a structure but had plenty of time to do nothing or something. Hiking /surfing/beaching/reading a book ( my first time ever!) and chatting with amazing people from so many parts of the world. 

Rosie and Natasha have planned this retreat so well. And did I mention we did yoga? Sunrise Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Yin Yoga.. felt amazing.
I would recommend this retreat to anyone, of any age! Love you girls - you rocked it!

 

 

Ute Franz, Germany

Too sad that our retreat at TCDF Ecologic with Natasha and Rosie had to come to an end. The week was nothing but extraordinary. Rosie and Natasha are just two lovely people that make you comfortable in your yoga practice and bring the whole yoga thing as a lifestyle closer to you. I am full of gratitude that I have been able to join them on their retreat at Ecologic where we enjoyed vegetarian farm-to-table meals with the nicest and kindest staff that you can imagine.

Thank you so much for an uplifting week with you, ladies!

Naomi Jane, UK

Can’t recommend this retreat enough! Rosie and Natasha are such wonderful teachers and their love and passion for yoga and life is totally infectious! A really well designed retreat with a great balance of yoga, self enquiry and local experiences. Thank you ladies for a wonderful and transformative experience! 

Sylvie Le, USA

If you are looking for a yoga retreat that will help you to connect to yourself and others in a meaningful and loving way, then you would really appreciate learning and practicing yoga and meditation under the guidance of Rosie.

Rosie is a lovely, experienced and skilled yoga teacher and retreat leader. She has a graceful way of authentically connecting with students on and off the mat to make you feel comfortable, relaxed and open. Naturally, her warmth and genuinity in caring for others brings forth a sense of community. Rosie is able to provide inspirational yoga classes, educational workshops, and community-building activities in a fun and playful way that will surely make you feel alive and free!

Jesika Lennox, CA

I had the honour of joining Natasha and Rosie in Thailand this June at Eco-Logic Resort.
These two wonderful ladies were a pleasure to be around. Making me feel accepted and appreciated for my unique qualities/strengths. Their knowledge in yoga, meditation and self love, allowed me to reach the next level in my practice. They exude confidence in their humble manner, which allowed me to break down some mental barriers of my own. The resort was exceptional as well. I got to meet great people, and experience a few excursions. Getting to experience more of Thailand; seeing beautiful waterfalls and temples, as well as trying new foods and looking around the markets.


At the resort itself, the food was fantastic and the accommodations were clean and cosy.

 

 

Sarah Schu, USA

I thought there was a perfect flow to the days themselves and the week as a whole. The sight tour on the first full day was a great introduction to the space. The Thai market visit also helped to orient us within the town as a larger community and potentially something that most people wouldn’t experience on a quick thai vacation. All the chances we had to watch the sunrise and sunset together was magical. Bike rides to beaches, ahhhhh. The spring roll cooking class was sweet especially because it gave us more of a chance to interact with the Thai staff.. beach picnic was so amazing… afternoon smoothies.. okay okay now I’m naming everything.. I had such a great time!

To sum up this retreat in three words: blissful, dreamy, playful.

Kariina Rand, USA

I had the pleasure of spending 2 weeks at a retreat center being taught by both Natasha and Rosie. They are not only incredible teachers but they both have beautiful souls. I loved the bits of inspiration and poetry they mixed into their class, I kept wanting to preserve those words as they resonated so much with me and my practice. The energy of these two women is incredible. Natasha is truly one of the smiliest person I have ever met. I instantly knew that the retreat would be amazing knowing someone with that energy was present. Rosie is wise beyond her years and was always keeping us laughing. Thank you both for helping improve my practice, bringing me deeper into this beautiful world of mindfulness, and providing memories that I cherish. I would highly recommend any retreat with these two ladies, I wish I could make it out to this one! Lots of love and light to you all!

Patrick DeJong, New Zealand

“I was lucky enough to attend the inaugural Whole and Happy Retreat in November 2016. Overall I thought the retreat was excellent. The location and accommodation were perfect, the food was fantastic and the yoga was great. I felt that even though I hadn’t done much yoga it was still very accessible. However without a doubt the people on the retreat were the highlight. It was a really good group and some of them have become life long friends. I also really liked how it was not too hardcore healthy and we could still relax with some beers.

Rosie and Natasha – these guys are a great team: enthusiastic, professional, excellent yoga teachers and very friendly. Thank you!”

Kelly Offner, USA

I can’t say enough good things about the Whole & Happy Retreat, Faasai Resort and Spa, and fearless leaders Rosie and Tasha!

I signed on for the retreat without having much yoga experience, but in great need of mental clarity, a physical challenge and true relaxation. Whole and Happy delivered all of that and more! I went to bed each night of the retreat with a calm and centered mind, belly full of delicious food and a heart brimming with love and joy. Oh…and the occasional sore muscle  Rosie and Tasha are compassionate and thoughtful teachers who will help you advance your practice and find peace in every moment. The staff at Faasai are delightful and attentive, and the resort grounds are impeccably kept! The surrounding town and beaches are perfect in every way. I’ll be returning as soon as I can!

 

Maria Rumyantseva, Germany

Natasha and Rosie are wonderful teachers. You can feel that they do everything with love and passion. I enjoyed a lot spending a week in a beautiful resort with these amazing people, thank you! 

I learned from Natasha and Rosie that you can achieve everything with the right attitude.

Kathryn McIntosh, Scotland

Thank you Rosie and Natasha for sharing your gentle, fun, therapeutic retreat with me! I have just returned home from the beautiful Glow Retreat feeling relaxed and revived to take on life.

Highly recommend to anyone that loves yoga, nature, good food, wine and morning dance offs. (And don't forget to get a Thai Massage from Rosie!)

 

 

 

Robert Kent, USA

“I had the pleasure of attending an outstanding yoga and meditation retreat in Cambodia with Rosie and Natasha. This team is truly magical. The space they hold is clear, positive, friendly yet sacred and educational all at the same time. I would highly encourage signing up for any offering that they put their love and intention into.”

Leo Schu, USA

Rosie and Natasha create such a supportive and welcoming atmosphere that it’s just natural to feel like family.

Thanks for helping me get back into yoga again.

 

 

Jonathan Pritchard, Australia

I have experienced Natasha and Rosie on separate occasions for class.

They are both caring and loving souls that create a safe space for union between mind and body.

The kindness and thought put into their instruction is clear with good intent. I thoroughly enjoyed their classes and would love to spend more time with them on the mat.

Nelly Habib, UK

Natasha and Rosie are the most amazing yoga teachers I have ever met, and I have met a lot, traveling Asia.

They both have a refreshing way of instructing a class that is both well explained and fun!

They are a joy to be around and you feel there contagious love and energy as soon as you meet them! I wish I could put you both in my pockets and take you everywhere with me. I would highly recommend any retreat that these two have put together. Peace & love to you all!
