“The Yoga/Wine Vacation in Puglia was truly magical. A perfect blend of fantastic food, wine, yoga and adventure, all in a breathtakingly beautiful setting. Gayles commitment to a healthy, balanced lifestyle is mirrored in her hands-on approach to teaching yoga. Strength, serenity and smiles…a perfect balance.” —Cindy McKay, Canada
“A Yogayle retreat / vacation is an executive woman’s dream vacation. Blackberry and office demands are put aside for a week so she can focus on stretching, relaxing, healthy eating and off the beaten path sightseeing. I came back recharged and plan to repeat my experience annually.” —PAT DUNN, USA
