has inspired me

"This won’t have been my last retreat. The organisation was flawless. You are a beautiful person, and so is Sjana. Everything you two did, seem to come from the heart. Byron was a fabulous location. Who doesn’t love Byron?! You attracted absolutely amazing people to this retreat. Not a day has passed where I have not thought of the stories these brave young woman have so openly shared. I am in awe of their courage and resilience. It has inspired me to paint again. Let’s hope I can keep it up. I have practiced a little bit of yoga every day since I left. It was an inspiring weekend, that I will never forget. Thank you!!!"

Fully Exceeded!

"I wasn't sure what to expect, except to be in a beautiful location for 4 days...
But State of Salt fully exceeded beyond what I thought was possible in that time frame.
I came away knowing I was touched by all the 5 senses - visual beauty, culinary delight ( the Chief's were amazing - in their seasonal selections ) The Yoga wasn't too hard for a beginner - yet still fulfilling in the magnificent dome, and background music to transport you to another time
I've come back to my regular life feeling very nurtured, calm and ready to take on the rest of 2021"

Warm, welcoming teacher!

"Beautiful class, gorgeous venue, amazing brekkie! Claudia is a warm, welcoming teacher who led us through a nice heat-building flow followed by a super-relaxing and melty cool down and stretch. The barrel hall was the perfect setting, and brekkie afterwards at Tuscan Terrace with the rain coming down was bliss. Amazing value with the 2-course brekkie, bubbles and coffee. Will definitely do this again!"

"Best yoga teacher ever!! I attended The State of Salt yoga retreat at Sirromet today and it was transforming. Thanks for getting me back into yoga! Best day - yoga, wine tasting and a long lunch."
