Gia was just what I needed for this journey to Mother Earth. She was most helpful for a beginner like myself and her sweetness cannot be forgotten!

Giaconda is professional, fun, wise, and filled with love and light which is contagious. Her smiling eyes make you feel comfortable right away. She went above and beyond to make sure everyone was happy and satisfied. The safe yoga classes and her lovely singing voice was such a treat! Giaconda is a true gem. I hope to do another retreat with her.
