India 2023

In 2023, I went back to India to lead another incredible retreat with the perfect combination of sightseeing, spirituality, luxury, and adventures. India is a magical, healing, and transformative place. We enjoyed private tours, great hotels, a sunrise hike, a school visit, and sightseeing in beautiful places. Of course, we had plenty of time to relax, meditate, eat, go shopping, and more.

“I loved the retreat. Everything about it …the location especially the wildlife, the hotels, and staff. The women who were a part of our group became family. This trip was life-changing for me. I learned so much about myself. Excited for the next adventure.” –  Janell Herrick

“The 2023 India retreat was an amazing life experience and I’m so thankful for the opportunity to have joined.  We were paired with a local guide who was extremely welcoming and kind to us during our visit.  He guided us through multiple historical sites and temples and combined the visits with lessons on Hindu mythology.  Our group was made up of the sweetest people and it made for a truly life-changing experience.  I would highly recommend Adri’s retreats.” – Naoko Crull

Santorini 2022

In 2022, I went back to Santorini to lead another luxury retreat for a wonderful group of people. Santorini is magical and being back was better than I remembered. We enjoyed private tours, wine tasting, a cooking class, and a private sunset Catamaran tour. Of course, we had plenty of time to relax by the pool or the beach, go shopping, and more.

Adri is an amazing person. The trip was fantastic. I can’t imagine how much had to be done behind the scenes with the pushes due to Covid for two years and to come out of it with a wonderful experience is a testament to her skill and dedication. The surroundings were wonderful, and the level of coordination between the yoga and the different types of excursions was beautifully thought through with something for everybody. I had an amazing experience and would highly recommend Adri and any future trips.” – Monika K.

“The week I spent in Santorini with Adri was nothing less than bliss.  It was my first solo trip traveling almost 30 hours to arrive.  Any nerves I had were put to rest right away, as I met other loving souls with whom I still stay in contact with on social media over a year later.  The accomodation was beautiful and the excursions were all very well planned.  Adri was very thoughtful and made sure I felt part of the group.  Thank you again Adri for this beautiful experience which will be in my heart forever.” – Laura Webber Coles 

“I absolutely loved the yoga retreat to Santorini!  From the moment I stepped foot off of the plane, I felt taken care of and looked after.  That was a big plus for this nervous traveler! Adri meticulously created a five-star experience in every way; from the accommodations and staff, to the food, the yoga, and the excursions.  I felt the retreat had a good balance of planned activities and free time to explore on our own. I even developed lifelong friendships from the other retreat participants.  It was truly an experience of a lifetime and would go again in a heartbeat!” – Jennifer Cronkhite

Ireland 2019

In 2019, I went back to Ireland to lead another incredible retreat for a wonderful group of friends. Ireland holds a special place in my heart and I could not wait to go back. Being there was better than I remembered. Our exclusive and luxurious private mansion had an incredible staff who took care of our every need. Our private chef was incredibly talented and our meals were exquisite. 

We enjoyed daily morning yoga classes, and various excursions, visited the Jameson distillery, had a traditional storyteller come and join us, and we of course had lots of free time to explore, shop, and relax. 

Bali 2017

In 2017, I went back to Bali to lead another wonderful retreat for a wonderful group of yogis and friends. Bali holds a special place in my heart and I could not wait to go back. Being there was better than I remembered and it was great to see some of the same people who feel like family to us. Our driver and some of the staff members were happy to see us again and made us feel like we were home.

We enjoyed daily morning yoga classes, trekked to the Batur Caldera, had blessings ceremony, purification ceremony at a powerful and healing waterfall, visited gorgeous temples, went water rafting, shopping, and enjoyed the best massages I had received in a long time. The food was delicious and the accommodations were very luxurious like the last time, we celebrated the end of our stay there with our private Balinese performance and dance just for our group. 

“I have been fortunate enough to attend 2 yoga retreats with Adri and she continues to amaze me with how she makes her travel experiences so enjoyable and gratifying.  Her retreats merge just the right amount of yoga/relaxation with wonderful travel adventures. Every detail of Adri’s retreats are well planned from the superb food to exceptional accommodations. Combine all of this with one of the best yoga instructors around and you are in for an amazing experience!” – Carol Nick-Kresl

Santorini 2015

In 2015, I led a group of yogis and friends to the beautiful Island of Santorini. It has always been one of my dreams to go there and enjoy the beautiful sunsets that the island is known for worldwide. It was an incredible experience to be there enjoying the food, culture, and sights. We practiced yoga daily, visited local towns with great shopping and food, rented a private boat for our group to sail through the waters of the Mediterranean, visited a very old civilization, a monastery, and much more. 

Santorini holds a special place in my heart and I’m sure I will go back in years to come. 

“Again, I would like to tell you how much we loved the retreat. Everything was perfect…the location, the hotel, and staff, the women (and men!) who were a part of our group….I could go on and on. You were fabulous! You challenged me to move beyond what I thought was possible for myself at this time and we succeeded! I understand so much more about myself than I did before. Where this knowledge will lead…who knows!” – Cindy

Bali 2013

In 2013, I led a group of yogis and friends to the beautiful Island of Bali. We had such a great time. I wanted to make this retreat extra special by combining morning yoga classes, fun excursions, massages, and great food while immersing ourselves in the beautiful culture the island has to offer. The retreat center is breathtaking and the yoga room where we practice each morning was beautiful. We were indoors but with the floor-to-ceiling windows, we felt like we were outdoors listening to the waterfall, and birds and enjoying a gentle breeze. The people in Bali are very kind, welcoming and friendly. 

We all had an amazing time trekking, water rafting, temple tours, and other fun activities. We enjoyed our Balinese purification ceremony and blessing ceremony, and the best part was our Private Farewell dinner where the entire village came to perform and dance just for our group. I can’t wait to go back to this beautiful place. It is my home away from home. 

“I recently had the good fortune to be part of a yoga retreat in Bali with Adri Kyser and I have to say it was a trip of a lifetime. The resort was lovely, the food spectacular and the views breathtaking. We practiced yoga in an open pavilion overlooking the lush tropical rainforest and surrounded by nature. The overall experience was transforming, peaceful, and uplifting. Adri did a fantastic job organizing the trip and all of our excursions. Thank you, Adri!” – Heidi Fessler

Peru 2011 

In 2011, a friend and I led a group of yogis and friends to Peru. We visited Machu Picchu, Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and more. We had such a great time. All the excursions, hotels, tours, and sites we visited were amazing. Visiting Machu Picchu and practicing Surya Namaskars there cannot be described with words. What a beautiful country! The people were so nice and friendly, and the food was delicious.

We all had amazing yoga classes twice per day at a beautiful, eco-friendly retreat center. We also visited Casa de Milagros, an orphanage where the kids are as adorable as they can be and become part of a big beautiful family.

“My husband and I went to Peru on a yoga retreat with Adri in June 2011 when I was 10 weeks pregnant. Adri worked with me personally to adjust my practice to the needs of pregnancy. I loved working with her! Her classes were both invigorating and spiritual. I love the way Adri works with each individual to meet the needs of her or his practice, while at the same time creating a cohesive atmosphere in class. Adri has a beautiful practice, and she is as beautiful on the inside as on the outside. She is a wonderful teacher and friend!” Jennifer

India 2010 

In 2010, I had the opportunity to go to India with a group of friends and yogis. We had amazing yoga classes, and visited temples and special places. Being part of the Ganga Aarti ceremony was an incredible experience and being able to meditate each morning in front of the Ganga River brought so much peace to everyone.  

We also visited a few schools and brought much-needed supplies to the kids there. We’re pampered with Ayurvedic massages, great food, and beautiful sights. We also had the opportunity to connect with the locals as well as with like-minded people from all over the world. You can see some great pictures of us visiting The Taj Mahal, Red Fort, and more.

Africa 2008 

In 2008, I was blessed with the opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful places where wildlife roams freely. I went to Kenya with a small group of yoga friends. We went on safari tours and visited a local school where we taught yoga and played with the girls. We visited the Masai villages, local markets, and restaurants. We also went to the Orphan Elephant shelter where we had the opportunity to see these beautiful babies bond with their keepers. We fed and petted the Giraffes, saw Zebras roaming, and saw lions with their cubs. We had an experience of a lifetime.

Dear Adri – I wanted to thank you for such a wonderful experience in Santorini. It was my first time on a Yoga Retreat and I hope it is not my last. The Yoga classes were invigorating and challenging and you kept us centered on what each person can do given our individual differences of where we are on our Yoga journey. The resort was amazing and the shared activities on the island were absolutely perfect. From the Sunset Cruise on the South Aegean Sea, the Wine Tasting Tour, the cooking classes with Maria learning to make Greek dishes to the 10-kilometer hike on the Caldera from Fira to Oia It was an awesome way to experience the culture. The group of people were fabulous. Thank you” ~ Ellen Lindop
