what people are saying about my retreats

The yoga retreat I enjoyed at Radiant Sun Yoga was a remarkable journey. Catherine takes the yoga experience well beyond the confines of the yoga mat to encompass the beach, the forest, the energy flows in nature, poetry and visualisation.  There was also fine food, great hospitality and new friendships. I left there with an altered and more expansive appreciation of yoga and its power to transform.

The retreat was amazing, energising, uplifting and nourishing.

This retreat was such a wonderful way to relax, recharge and delve deeper into the practice of yoga.  Our morning sunrise was so beautiful – particularly watching the whales.  Catherine is so nurturing, dedicated, warm hearted and humorous – it was a great pleasure to work with her, and I hope to drop into the yoga shed for practice with her again.

I had a really wonderful time at the Radiant Sun Yoga retreat. I feel that the retreat opened my heart and my connection to myself, through deepening my connection to my practice, the natural environment and the yoga community. The highlights of the weekend were practicing yoga in the natural environment, including while watching the sunrise, broadening my understanding of yoga philosophy, learning about a variety of different practices and meeting new and wonderful people. Oh, and the food is not only nutritious but the best I’ve ever had on a retreat! The weekend was a deeply healing experience and I highly recommend the retreat to anyone, whether you are just discovering yoga or have been practicing for a long time.

The retreat expanded my own practice by doing things outside my usual practice.  I really enjoyed the restorative yoga – it was a great reminder to bring more balance by bringing the feminine energy to my mostly masculine practice.  My main take-home was to remember that lying on a bolster can be just as powerful and beneficial as doing five rounds of sun salutations. I have bought a bolster, and am now incorporating a restorative practice at home once a week.

It was so good being able to add a more information to my yoga journey.  I loved the walk and grounding practices – and I have been continuing with that mindfulness.  I really appreciated having some one on one time with you to talk about my personal practice.

I was inspired by the amazing food and have been trying to bring some of those changes into my own diet.

Dorothy (who is clearly a pretty amazing person) did such a great job with the food.

The Radiant Sun Yoga Retreat run by Catherine Potter was an overall positive experience, well organised and catering to the differing needs of the group. Well-balanced activities and free time, good accommodation and excellent fresh vegetarian food. Good company and good fun.

The Radiant Sun retreat was an unexpected delight in many ways. The yoga experience for a beginner was outstanding and it was enhanced by the community living and free time in a beautiful setting. 

Thank you for an absolutely lovely weekend – it was an experience to treasure and reflect on for some time to come. And great to get in so much yoga in one weekend. I am still marvelling over the steam coming off the sea on that Sunday morning! And the moon that evening when we were driving home! A lot to savour.

The emphasis on spirituality.  It’s exactly where I’m at (right now) in my yoga journey (like it could be any other way?).  I love cosmic synchronicity – it really fries my noodle!
