Whether you're already one of our dedicated clients at Retreat Yoga & Wellness Studio in the Turks and Caicos, or this is your first time here: Welcome.

For many years, we've dreamed of opening a yoga studio here in our childhood home of Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos. It was not an easy feat. We dedicated years of training to our yoga practice and holistic nutrition education in the U.S. and Canada, and spent countless hours talking about how we were going to bring our idea to life. But we've found that hard work can pay off in a big way. Because in December 2014, we finally did it.

It doesn't matter if you're new to yoga, tai chi or meditation. We've created a space where all are welcome to develop their practice. We offer a range of yoga classes, from a relaxing restorative class to our intense (and very sweaty, as our yogis will surely agree) hot power flow. And we're very fortunate to offer tai chi and meditation classes as well from two wonderful instructors, Edward Shearer and Sonia Bueno de la Torre.

The support from our clients so far has been overwhelming. We can't stress enough how thankful we are to have the opportunity to share our passion with you all. And now we want to extend our relationship with you all beyond the mat.

Starting today, we'll be using this space to share a more in-depth look at the practices of yoga, tai chi and meditation. We are constantly learning and honing our own practice, and we want to help you do the same. We'll also be sharing some tasty juice and snack recipes from our boutique so you can make your own at home. We want you to be part of this journey with us, and we welcome any suggestions or questions you may have.

We can't wait to get started. Watch this space for new posts. And thank you all for your unwavering support. We are full of love and gratitude. Hope to see you on the mat!

Namaste,

Laura & Lindsay
