RADIANCE RETREATS TESTIMONIALS
'I cannot think of a better way to have spent my new years celebrations than with Jessie and her crew. This was a very special experience that I will not soon forget. The level of care and concern shown for every member of our group was incredible, both during the yoga sessions and over the whole retreat. The location was beautiful, the food was outstanding and all the extra activities where highly enjoyable. Never have I started a new year with such inspiration, gratitude and wellbeing. My wife and I will definitely be back...with as many friends and family members as we can drag along!'

Lina, 65, Retired - Radiance Spain Yoga & Hiking Retreat
“My spine is longer, mind clearer, heart open and spirit soaring. That's what this retreat did for me. Picture sunrise on a warm beach while saluting to the sun. Resting in comfort looking out to nature. Eating healthy food to your tummy's content. Lush Massage treatments rolling out the stress. Talented and inspiring teachers and heart warming guests, a yogi family.”
Maya, 43, Therapist – Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat
“Thanks for providing this amazing experience. I went back to my regular class and was astounded to feel how much flexibility and strength I gained over such a short time. In addition to this, I feel ‘happy’. I know this may sound simplistic, but I can't remember feeling simply ‘happy’ for no particular reason. This experience will definitely shape the way I approach my life.”

It is a wonderful environment where I was able to reconnect with myself and deepen my yoga and meditation practice. This retreat is for everybody at any levels. Jessie and her team make you feel supported and cared for and are always ready to assist you. It was such an incredible way to start the New Year with a clear mind, feeling happy, positive, confident and rejuvenated."

Thank you to Jessie and the facilitators for creating such a special space"
Mark, 41, Teacher - Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat
“As a doctor, I am always telling my patients that ‘self nurturing is not self-indulgence'. I hardly ever practice what I preach, so decided to do so. I arrived completely stressed out and frazzled, wondering whether I had made a huge mistake, but left 6 days later completely rejuvenated. The was a lot of emphasis put on ‘restorative’ yoga, which was perfect for stressed out city workers, and I started sleeping well for the first time in months. It was when I ‘re-entered’ into city life that I became aware of just how much I had benefited from the experience. Friends thought I looked relaxed and ‘radiant’ and I have found my threshold for becoming stressed has dropped quite a few notches. I will be recommending this retreat to anyone who will listen.”
Laura, 54, Doctor - Byron Bay NYE Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat
"Fantastic refreshing restorative retreat. Perfect way to close the year and start afresh."
Tim, 24, Architect - NYE Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat
"Having just spent a fantastic week in Spain, I am delighted to recommend Jessie Chapman's Radiance yoga retreat for anyone who wants an active and stimulating holiday. I feel both rested and reinvigorated, and ready to explore the world further. The hiking and scenery is incredible, and the intensity of the daily yoga helped me make some real gains (even as a beginner). The combination of mental and physical challenges and restorative contemplation was perfectly balanced and both teachers were really helpful and knowledgeable. Oh, and the food was delicious! Fabulous week in an amazing part of the world.
Cara, 39, Journalist - Spain Yoga & Hiking Retreat
"Through beautifully paced teaching Jessie leads by example and empowers the group to take responsibility for themselves. Excellent support is provided by the rest of the team. A safe environment for learning is there from the first moment to the last."
Karen, 58, Educator- Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat
"The joy began at the sight of our Tuscan Villa which proved to be 'home' for a week of well balanced strengthening, restoring, rejuvenating yoga and meditation. We enjoyed wonderful walks through the countryside and optional outings. The vegetarian food, facilities and staff were outstanding and Jessie's guidance and nurturing instruction lead us all through a wonderfully, memorable time. I now have a new strength of heart, body and mind. Thank you so much."
Jenny, 55, Yoga teacher & Body Therapist - Tuscany Yoga & Walking Retreat
"I have just spent the most wonderful week at Radiance Tuscany Yoga & Walking Retreat. I feel completely rejuvenated, re-energized and inspired to continue to make time in my life for yoga. Jessie provided a perfect balance between strengthening and restorative yoga practice, walks through the stunning Tuscan countryside, time for quiet reflection and relaxation and optional excursions. I met some really lovely people, the Villa accommodation was gorgeous and the food amazing. I recommend Radiance Retreats to anyone who needs "time-out" to concentrate on themselves and their yoga practice. I'm already planning for my next Radiance Retreat."
Catherine, 51, Library Officer - Tuscany Yoga & Walking Retreat
"Taking 5 days out and spending it in an amazing location with the Radiance team was so worthwhile.
The retreat program provides the opportunity to develop your yoga practice physically and the mind has a chance to slow; with that comes balance, peace and clarity. This has allowed me to centre myself and find the space to determine where my energy needs to focus and the direction I need to take. Looking at the next opportunity as it's something everyone should do annually."
Sarah, 47, Manager Local Government - Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat
"If you have come so far that you are reading the testimonials, book the retreat. You will not be disappointed. The Bali retreat provides the perfect environment to get away from it all, spoil yourself, meet new people, spend time on your own, and develop your yoga practice. Jessie and her facilitators are very professional and inspiring."
Melissa, 27, Doctor - Bali Yoga Spa Wellnes Retreat

Kim. 39, Mum and uni student - Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat
"I came home a changed woman after the retreat, I really found myself again after years of continuous stress of starting my own practice, and then having a baby while running my practice. There hasn’t been true me time for me. It is amazing what even a few days of yoga, meditation and relaxation can do for your body and soul. I came home with a new found inner peace and focus, totally revitalized and inspired. Highly recommended, my goal is now to make it at least an annual event I must do."
Judith, 43, Architect - Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat

Sarah, 36, Director Corporate Finance - Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat

Leonie, 52, Human Resources Manager - Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat
"Jessie and the Radiance facilitators are an amazing group of people who have the knowledge, care and love to support anyone on their retreat journey. My expectations were totally blown away and I have now found greater inner peace and a calmness which I know will continue, as I now have the increased knowledge and passion necessary to carry this into my daily existence. I am eternally grateful to Jessie and her facilitators for helping me to get back onto my true path and feel so much lighter and happier."
Narelle, 34, Teacher - Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat
Sunshine, good food, a beautiful location, and hours of yoga every day - it sounded to good to be true before I went and the reality was even better. I have returned home with a lightness of spirit as well as body that enables me, as Jessie says at the end of her classes, "to turn up the edges of my mouth and smile to myself". Radiance is certainly what it's been about for me, and each day since I have returned home I have given thanks that I was able to spend such a week exploring my mind, body and sprit in such beautiful surroundings, with the truly exceptional group of people that Jessie has gathered around her. An experience definitely to be repeated."
Nicky, 40, Environmental Campaigner - Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat

Roger, 48, Dentist – Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreat

Pip, 33, Corporate Affairs Manager - Bali Yoga Spa Wellness Retreat
"As a total beginner, I could have easily been left behind. Instead, I found myself nurtured and supported every step of the way. Jessie is a fantastic teacher and the extra assistance from the facilitators made such a difference to my experience. I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone who is new to yoga. I now feel like I have a great foundation for my future yoga practice'"
Toni, 45, HR Manager - Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat
"There are no words that fully express the experience I had on the 2014 NYE Radiance Retreat. It is a holiday I will treasure for the rest of my life. The program, the loving and caring staff, the welcoming accommodation and let's not forget the abundant spread of tantalising food. My body, mind and soul were united and nourished. I cant thank Jessie and her team enough for helping start 2015 in such a beautiful way.
Sara, 35, Marketing - Byron Bay NYE Retreat
"Whilst the retreat was restorative and luxurious, I don't think its full benefits will be known unitl the coming weeks and months, as I feel inspired and enabled to make permanent, postive changes to my diet and lifestyle, that I never would have considered possible before the retreat. Thanks to Jessie and the other facilitators, my experience of the retreat was transformational."
Christine, 33, Social Worker - Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat
"Before the retreat ,although I practiced yoga I was stressed, insomniac and running on empty. I felt as though i was living to work and just getting by everyday. I had started to attend a yoga class but was always "too busy" to practice daily -always planning to "one day learn to relax". It's hard to believe that after the Byron retreat i am almost a completely different person. Still me and still the same job but the calm I learnt on the retreat is still with me. The yoga was great, even for a beginner, and I am still practicing daily. The setting, the food and the yoga surpassed all my expectations and i can't speak highly enough of Jessie and her team of beautiful women whose expertise and serenity made every yoga session a joy. A bonus - I have learned to sleep again. I can't wait to return next year and the year after that."
Leonie, 53, years Nurse/Case Manager - Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat
"Radiance Retreat was an exceptional experience on all levels.
Such care and nuturing support from all staff. Wonderful food with soul--Thank you."
Dianne Fisher, Client Services Manager/Financial Planning - Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat >
"A week after returning home from my retreat with Jessie, I still feel like I have an inner calm and a renewed energy. I hadn't expected the overwheming supportive environment and positive energy both from the other attendees and the staff on the retreat particularly within the yoga classes. I feel like my body was pushed to its limits in the classes and I have taken a piece of that home with me. I am walking with my shoulders back and feel centred and grounded as I move through life. Again unexpectedly, the retreat gave me a gentle wake up call to my less than ideal diet. Since the retreat I have not added sugar to my food (previously a sugar addict), have given up coffee and have started revisiting my stash of Vegetarian cookbooks. My 3 year old is less than impressed with beetroot dip but has certainly embraced Quinoa pasta. I am looking forward to continuing my own personal health revolution and continuing to enjoy the effects this is having on my clarity and strength of mind. I hope it is not too long before I am on retreat again with you."
Louise, 34, Training Manager - Byron Bay Yoga Cleanse & Pamper Retreat

“Jessie Chapman’s Yoga Retreat in Byron Bay was amazing. It’s not often that you can just hang out and do yoga for five days and eat fantastic food in unreal surroundings.

We met some fantastic people up there including several great facilitators who give guidance on yoga postures and enhance the experience with workshops aimed at improving your skills at leading a healthier lifestyle. If you are thinking that you want to have a break with a difference, then this is for you.”

"Along with my two sisters and mother, we recently treated ourselves to an amazing week in Bali with Jessie and facilitators. Being totally removed from our 9 children and daily routines we were able to submerse ourselves into yoga practice and achieve a inner peace and relaxation (4xfull body massages did help!), that we have not had since the children arrived.

The pace was supportive and never overwhelming.
