Past Guest Reviews

I was on the hunt for something fresh and new, something to rattle my tree and shake my cage. I have always been cavalier, but tend to think with my head, and sadly, rarely have I ever followed my heart. I did not know Michele nor the other Warriors, and living in South Africa, was passively drawn to this through a Facebook post by our yoga instructor, Nathania, who went to school with me 20 years ago. But something special called me to this – in fact it tugged so hard on my heart that my mind couldn’t ignore it and was sold on the idea just a few hours later. Throwing caution to the wind, I said, “I’m in!”.Michele asked us to cast our expectations aside… But secretly, I had a tall ask: make me feel alive!In terms of the finer details, Michele was incredibly thoughtful when it came to our needs ahead of and during the Retreat. In the middle of a magical setting with delicious, healthy food, the variety of physical activities and experiences brought me greater personal awareness and peace; this is my journey and I can trust myself. Mindful. Grateful for the moment and of being alive.My Bali experience resulted from and in a series of new and deeper connections with beautiful and authentic people, whom I lost myself in with fun, tears and laughter. I left Bali glowing with positive energy in body, mind and heart(!), renewed gratitude for my close and stable relationships, rich new friendships and a reignited desire to live a spectacular and varied life.Thank you to everyone that made this experience as meaningful as it was, and specifically to Michele and Nathania.

It is difficult to put into words how wonderful Michele’s Mindful Warrior & Mindful Goddess Transformation Retreat to Bali was. I think I can safely say that everyone left the retreat touched and changed in some way. Michele constructed a space for an experience that was at once profoundly spiritual, physically challenging, adventurous, philanthropic and purposefully mindful. Ten people came together from different walks of life, at different stages of their personal growth journey with different levels of understanding of what it meant to live mindfully. The experience reflected back at each participant what he or she was meant to get from the trip and we all walked away with a deeper understanding of ourselves and of compassion, perseverance, support and love. It’s very difficult to pinpoint a highlight or what I liked best about the retreat. There were so many aspects that were incredibly unique – from the fully self-sustainable eco lodge where we stayed to the Balinese healers we visited, to the mountain we climbed through the night to watch the sun rise over a view that takes your breath away; to the afternoon we spent with village school children making decorations for their bare classroom walls; to the discipline of a twice-daily yoga practice, the mouth-watering food prepared with ingredients grown just outside the dining room; to sleeping with walls open to the jungle, taking in the sounds and feeling enveloped by nature. I don’t even know where to begin – this doesn’t even scratch the surface. I never wanted it to end, and I can’t wait until I can go back, though I know it will never be the same as this retreat was. I would absolutely attend another retreat with Michele.

Not only has Bali been on my bucket list, It was synchronicity that led me to the amazing Michele!! Michele made this trip more than U could ever imagine..if I went alone I would have never done the things we did. Meeting 2 spiritual healers, climbing a 5,600ft volcano, meeting with children at the local school, living on an organic sustainable farm in the jungle and most of all bonding with people I’ve just met who will now be lifelong friends!! Thank you Michele for this life changing, mindful retreat.

I am 28 year old girl who lives in Southern California that has become a personal trainer. This line of work is perfect for me because it lets me be creative by sculpting a women’s physique, as well as, rewarding by helping them feel better about themselves inside and out. This lifestyle takes on a different mindset and with the help of this retreat I have become such a better motivator, coach, trainer, friend, and individual! I didn’t really know what to expect, other than we were going to do some yoga and hiking, but the fact is, I have had such an amazing LIFE experience in such a small amount of time! This was my first retreat, but I have traveled outside of country before to France, Italy and Switzerland which was quite beautiful. The way Michele orchestrated all of the workshops and day excursions, made us ask ourselves questions that we wouldn’t ask ourselves in a normal vacationing setting. This pushed us to mentally step out of our comfort zones and is why I have suggested to all of my family members and clients to try one of Michele’s retreats. Everyone, no matter what their occupation or lifestyle, can grow and learn from this type of experience. I would definitely go on another Mindful Warrior & Mindful Goddess International Transformation Retreat in a second! I would love to visit a country that has a Fair Trade Producer such as India, Colombia, Sri Lanka, or Africa. ~Simone Basile, Santa Clarita, CA 


For me it was a once in a lifetime experience. The location was breathtaking. I loved the program especially the yoga. I got to meet new and interesting people . I highly recommend this kind of retreat. I would definitely do it again.

So to start off, I want to say that this retreat was the best trip of my life! I’m a really busy person day to day with my career. I was looking for a little R&R get away. I heard about the Mindful Warrior & Mindful Goddess Transformation Retreat to Bali, from a friend. I immediately was interested when I read the info about it via email. I went with an open mind and had no expectations. I just wanted to get away. Everything that unfolded during the retreat was pretty amazing. I realized I wasn’t just there to relax, but I was there for a reason. I was spiritually awakened! From the yoga for the 1st time, to meditation, to concurring a 3 hour volcano hike, to living in the jungle (just a few things to mention). And although we were there with a group, there was a lot of individual self achievements and rewards. I personally had a lot of growth throughout this retreat. There was things that I had neglected about myself and I realized them on this retreat. If I was to do this trip differently……….. I wouldn’t change a thing. It was what I was looking for and didn’t know it. And as far as Michele the owner, she was very thorough with all the info we needed from travel, to what to bring, etc. She really knows how to do it in a very personable and professional way. I would definitely recommend these retreats to all. I already have my deposit in for the next one and I don’t even know where the next one is!

The Mindful retreat in Bali was my first experience attending a retreat. My overall experience was beyond anything that I expected! The location was perfect, in the jungle among rice paddies. We were about 2-hours from the nearest city and there were no outside noises other than the sounds of the jungle and running water from the nearby waterfalls and mountain streams. Michele D’Angona helped to make this retreat all that it was: sharing her ‘words of wisdom’, her enthusiasm, her thoughtfulness, and her own experiences as she travels around the world. I would definitely attend another retreat and know that the experience would be well worth it. The accommodations were excellent and the staff very friendly. My room was ideal. I shared my lodge with four other people whom I did not know prior to attending the retreat. The like-mindedness of all of us who attended the retreat helped to enhance the experience. As part of the retreat we visited a local village school. The children were amazing, so appreciative of all the school supplies we donated as part of our Mindful retreat. I also looked forward to visiting a ‘Balinese Healer’ as this was on my ‘bucket list’! All my expectations were met with the two ‘healers’ we visited. As part of the retreat we had the privilege of having a yoga instructor among us. Waking up in the morning and then again in the late afternoon we did yoga in an outside patio area covered by a thatched roof with the jungle all around us. Meditating in such a peaceful place was ideal. I would definitely want to attend another retreat, possibly in India. I’d like to experience the spirituality of Hinduism and/or Buddhism in a retreat environment. ~Elaine Paletz, CA 


Michele DAngona organized an amazing retreat in Bali. The itinerary was well put together. We saw city life in Ubda, spirituality with an healer, sunrise hiking silence meditation day, volunteer in school and yoga sessions with an amazing instructor. Michele put a personal touch by giving every person in the retreat gift bag and special thank you card. Michele really chose a good dynamic group of people, who were strangers at the beginning of the retreat and at the end of the retreat became good friends. If Michele does another retreat ,I’ll definitely attend it.

~Ravit D., Los Angeles, CA 


The Mindful Transformation Retreat in Bali was a journey to heaven For me. I did not know what to expect before i left Los Angeles until I got to the Bali Eco Stay. The place surrounded by beautiful palm trees, gardens, waterfall and rice paddies. Sporadic sounds of colorful birds whispering from every corner of the skies on an early clear day it’s nostalgic feelings of happiness I have not had since childhood and I am having hard time to express. our morning started with one and a half hours of yoga that was included breathing followed by a combination moves of Hatha, and relaxation poses. The food was amazing it was prepared by local chefs from the nearest village. A combination of fresh fruits, greens, salads and home made breads and of course, rice. The staff were always respectful, supportive and smiley ( real smile not LA smile 🙂 you can feel the karma vibe and willingness to assist you on anything either emotional or physical. During the time we were in Bali we did a lot of hiking, traveling to nears cities, visiting a spiritual healer and local school where we interacted with the Kids and gave them some school supplies. After 10 days we returned home energized with good karma, health and gratitude. I also learned a lot about my self. Michele D’Angelo really did a great job organize and plan this retreat. Everyday was a great experience. I highly recommend it and in future I’m planing to go with Michele again.
