TESTIMONIALS

Byron Bay’s newest (and most beautiful) wellness retreat will help us all attain enlightenment —Vogue Living

“Space is something they think about a lot at Soma; from the feeling of openness you get moving through an environment that is expansive and light to the sense of communion you feel with nature.” – 10 Magazine

“Gary has shown me what is possible and available when you’re made aware of what lies just beyond the apparent” —Gemma Ward, Model and Actress

“Before studying with Gary I could barely slow down and focus enough to write a single sentence. I think you’ll find this quote contains two, which is a testament to his excellent technique.” —Hamish Blake, Comedian, TV and Radio personality.
