WHAT OUR HAPPY GLO CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY

GLO is the remedy every “body” needs! I have now attended 2 different week-long yoga wellness retreats with Grace around the world, and also enjoyed a month-long nutrition consultation via Skype. Grace’s retreats not only introduce you to her delicious, healthy, detoxifying foods, but also enable physical and mental rejuvenation and healing. Her retreats are well-organized, personally customized, and attended by other amazing guests who help you enjoy the time and heal! Her nutritional advice is golden. The recipes are easy and delicious, and she teaches you not just about the foods and their preparation, but how to become a healthier eater in the realities of daily life (with holidays, dinner events, and a busy work schedule). GLO transforms me with every trip to Nicaragua and with every bite of food I take! I’m stronger and healthier for it! Thanks Grace!!!
