Meet your host:
Soulstainable is excited to introduce our new co-host and retreat leader; Savanah Harvey and the Kismet Collection.
Yoga has been a foundational aspect of Savanah’s life since she was 19. After many years as a student, she decided to take the journey to the other side of her mat in 2018, gaining the privilege to guide others through their practice. This decision led her to embark on a solo journey through six countries, with nothing other than her backpack and a yoga mat. During this adventure, she worked at Byron Yoga Centre in Byron Bay, NSW, Australia, found herself teaching in New Zealand, and has since allowed her practice to guide her to many beautiful places around the world.
Savanah founded Kismet Collection, an experiential wellness community focused on re-discovering the power of human connection, with the intention to bring like minded people together to explore oneself, one another, and the world.
Through the Kismet Collection experience, we connect one’s mind, body, and soul through vinyasa and restorative yoga practices, therapeutic workshops, and nourishing meals, while exploring breathtaking locations around the world.
