Sarah West

“…And as a healer and facilitator myself, it is especially meaningful to find a teacher where I feel such integrity and knowledge that transcends just the physical awareness of yoga. She transmits a deep love and knowingness that permeates the whole space to allow healing and renewal of one’s consciousness...”

“…Really, I would like to write you a love letter! With this retreat you have created a beautiful environment, safe and open, as well as lighthearted, contained setting in which practicing with spirituality becomes an accessible undertaking. Your yoga classes are rich in variations while consistent in structure. I am ever so grateful for your wonderful example, because it is so amazing to witness how you actually live what you teach…”

“…I hope you will continue to show the world your beautiful and positive presence. Thank you so much for this unforgettable week of self-growth for me. The sessions had great fluidity and variety. The pace was great and everything transitioned so smoothly. Always a welcoming and caring atmosphere. ‘A mind stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions...”

“…As a beginner, this retreat exceeded my expectations for a positive experience. It has encouraged me to make yoga an important part of my life from now on, to share with my wife and new yoga partner…” 


Nancy R.

“…The yoga was wonderful as it always is. I appreciate your starting more gently and increasing in intensity as the week progressed. I know that these things don’t just come together without a good deal of work and care, and I appreciate your efforts. The thoughts and questions generated by the exercises will stay with me long after we have left Sayulita. Your care and thoughtfulness in all aspects of the retreat made for a wonderful experience..”

“…Thank you again for your wonderful way of being. You are a guiding light.Thank you for all the energy you put into the handouts and into the sense of loving support that you emanate. The yoga sessions were all excellent. Barbara, you have a great gift in the words of inspiration you use as well as naming the phases of each evolving pose. Being with you was all and more than I had imagined…”


“…I loved the balance of meditation and yoga and the clarity and honesty of your shared thoughts and focus. You did a terrific job of meeting all different student levels of yoga practice. Really this entire experience has been more than I’d dreamed. The energy you create is so lovely, delicious — makes one want to continue the journey into the now...”

“…I am writing today to share with you the experience I had with Barbara Powell of Wild Yoga when I was in Santa Fe for Spanish Market in July.  When I lived in Santa Fe I practiced yoga with Barbara several days a week.  I was so thrilled to find that she is still teaching and has created this wonderful experience called Wild Yoga.  I have not practiced in a long time and was thrilled to have this awesome outdoor experience with her.  She worked with me at my pace and the space she has created is remarkable. The space she has created is up by the St. John’s College; it is shaded, padded, peaceful and simply wonderful.  I would recommend that you try and schedule a time with her so you can share this remarkable experience with your guests.  Before I left Las Palomas I left several of her cards at the front desk.  Barbara can be reached at 505-577-6206.  Thank you and have a great day…” 


“…Our Families had a wonderful experience! It also helped place everyone in the mindset of “living in the now” which I believe is very important for a wedding weekend. Thank you for making our special trip even more special...”


“…Thank you so very much for leading our yoga session Saturday morning at the Four Seasons. It was a wonderful experience for us to practice together as four 35-year-long friends. And we found you to be a superbly effective leader and overall inspiration. We hope to be back…”


“…A most magical day – hiking to a secret, blissful place buried in the forest for yoga, followed by a picnic next the Santa Fe River, and then the joy of expressing yourself through art in ways you would not have thought possible – definitely a ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ with the exceptional guidance of Barbara and Lauren – don’t miss this experience...”

“…As a yoga tourist to Santa Fe, the highlight by far was Barbara’s Wild Yoga, a perfect trifecta of yoga, meditation, and hiking in the gorgeous hills around Santa Fe. The experience was seamlessly woven together. . . I couldn’t wait to do it again! And when I did, it was a different experience, but equally as enchanting! I so enjoyed meeting and practicing with you! Don’t know if I’ll see you here in Guatemala or in Santa Fe, but I am sure we will meet again!Love and best wishes…”
