Life Changing! Life changing is the only word that I can use to describe what I experienced on this retreat. I woke up this morning, went for a walk. Did some yoga and I wasn’t doing this prior to the retreat. I always wanted to but I didn’t have the confidence before. I couldn’t have asked for a better host or crew of women.I was the only one from the US and I felt like I’d known these people for my entire life . I couldn’t have imagined I’d meet such and amazing group of women in my life! I was so nervous but, everyone made me feel so comfortable, it was such a welcoming environment. Corrines energy fed out positive vibes the entire time! We did some many activities that I never thought I would do… I climbed a mountain! It was challenging but being surrounded by this group girls made everything so much better. Everyone supported and motivated me … I never felt that I was less than anybody even though I have never hiked more than 2 miles before the trip. Truly the best experience of my life and I will definitely be attending another excursion in the future!

I couldn’t recommend active odyssey enough… I couldn’t recommend active odyssey enough I’ve been lucky to be apart of a few trips/hike throughout the year and each one has been the absolute highlight of my year! Being surrounded by like minded/inspiring women doing the most wholesome activities! Corrine really is the perfect host you couldn’t ask for a better person to be leading these activities she makes everyone feel so welcome! The Madeira trip was my first retreat experience and it changed alot for me it’s challenged me and pushed me out of my comfort zone in the best way! I felt like I came away with a clearer mindset and better habits! The week was filled with best variation of yoga, hikes, viewpoints, sunrises and canyoning everything was so well organised! I can’t wait to hopefully be involved in more activities in the future 🙌🏻xx

10/10 Experience I am so grateful for the experience I had, I created a bond with the group and we became a family I felt like I was in the safest space with empowering women that supported me throughout the trip. It enabled me to push myself out of my comfort zone but also be in the present moment when I really needed to disconnect from the stresses at home. Every detail was carefully considered , the Villa, locational food and activities Invest in yourself, I couldn’t recommend this experience enough and taking that time for yourself.

An experience I will treasure for life Everything was great, from the choice of location to the activities and accommodations provided. Corrine and Beth made sure everything was perfect and that everyone was happy, there were choices for the activities so nobody would feel left out. There was a team of two chefs coming to cook every night, they accommodated everyone's food preferences and allergies and everything was delicious and fresh. I went back home from this retreat full of energy and with many mindfulness and wellness practices that I am now integrating in my daily life. This is an experience I will treasure for life, as well as the friendships I made there.
