I loved the simplicity of the resort, Casa Grande, against the opulence of the beauty that surrounded it. Perfect setting to me for taking in, and tuning into nature at every turn, whether sitting in your hammock, or walking the bridges and pathways, or sitting in meditation spots gazing at the moutains in the clouds. For me, as yoga ambassador, this setting allowed our retreaters to tune into themselves and each other in very warm and welcoming ways. No rush to get anywhere, most of the important things to do and see were right under our noses!

My trip was blissful. Casa Grande was the perfect place for a yoga retreat - surrounded by nature in a beautiful yoga studio just steps away from my room, the dining room, and the pool. Tracy Von Kaenel's two yoga classes a day had me doing the best yoga of my life - she's the best!

Fantastic. It exceeded my expectations in every way. This was a Yoga Retreat and the Central Mountains of Puerto Rico could not have been a better setting. The Casa Grande Mountain Retreat provides excellent food, comfortable rooms, very good service and an ideal space for Yoga practice, led by a suburb Yoga teacher, Tracy Von Kaenel.

Casa Grande was amazing, unlike any other place I've ever been. Waking up to the fog rolling over the jungle covered mountains is something I will always remember in moments when I need some peace. A great trip and I hope to make it back to casa grande again.

I can't say enough about Tracy Von Kaenel's Nature and Nurture retreat. It satisfied on every level. The yoga was magnificent, the setting spectacular. And Casa Grande Mountain Retreat was a true joy. The accommodations were just right - clean and comfortable and simple enough to reinforce the spirit of the retreat. Steven and the staff at Casa Grande were so friendly and gracious and incredibly accommodating. I am a vegan and they totally understood what that meant and made sure I had good, nurturing food. I mention this because I think it reflects the philosophy of Casa Grande - a commitment to people, to compassion, and to the environment. Thank you everyone for making this such a life-transforming experience.

The yoga retreat at Casa Grande surpassed my expectations. It was a lovely setting with beautiful accommodations. The rooms felt like cabanas and had a real feeling of privacy. The food was delicious and plentiful. The swimming pool was ideal in size and temperature. The room where we did yoga was large, open to the sounds and sights of the nature around us. And the staff couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. I felt like I knew them when I left.

This trip was spectacular. The Casa Grande resort is beautiful, the dedicated yoga room so inviting and well supplied. The food is generous and delicious, and always prepared and served with a smile. Everyone at the resort is helpful and kind, catering to our every need. As the leader of this retreat I cannot say enough about how much we were welcomed, and how accomadating the staff was. My 21 yoginis had a wonderful time....I recommend this resort to everyone...
