Retreat Leaders

Meeting Cathy has always felt like an opportunity sent by my angels. In 2019 when I set out to launch my first international retreat, I had no idea what I was in store for.  Not only did Cathy handle all bookings and offer assistance and guidance, she was also a huge support when my retreat was postponed due to the cancellation of all travel at the start of the pandemic. 


The two years that followed, Cathy remained a tremendous support and checked in often. Always offering a positive word. Right up to the day we finally departed for the retreat in March of 2022, Cathy remained available and assisted where she could with the last minute details. Cathy’s support allowed me to focus on making every detail of my inaugural retreat a success and I can’t wait to lead the next one with Cathy Wassermann Retreats.

Oh and! @wassermannretreats !!! I cannot say enough about Cathy, our amazing travel agent. Cathy collected all the payments, gave us all the insurance info, kept us up to date on covid protocols and was just the most amazing support person a retreat leader and retreat guests could ask for. Thank you so much Cathy!! Can’t wait to do it all again!!!

I've always believed that its important to know where your zone of genius lies.... and then to "stay in your lane." I personally thrive as a leader and teacher, but I'm far from the best organizer!! That's why having Cathy assist me with all my retreat logistics was a total dream. It was important to me that every part of my retreat was professional, and that the registration process was super smooth for my guests, thanks to Cathy, it all went off without a glitch. I will absolutely be hiring Cathy to assist me with my future retreats, and I absolutely recommend other retreat leaders do the same!

I would like to thank Cathy Wassermann, and recommend Wassermann Retreats for all their help booking my first yoga retreat. If you are thinking of booking a retreat for the first time - Cathy is your "go to" girl. She is very knowledgeable and helped me choose the perfect destination. Cathy did all the bookings for me and helped my participants with questions regarding transfers, airfare and insurance. She was delightful to work with and always available. I am very happy with the service and help I received. I highly recommend her services.

Cathy Wassermann is amazing!  She was and is a very important part of my Retreat team.  Throughout the year of planning and selling the retreat Cathy was always just a phone call or email away.  She always made me feel important and treated me like a friend, not just a client.  I would 100% recommend Cathy and her team and will use her services again and again in the future! I can’t wait for the next retreat together!

Costa Rica Yoga Spa Resort "Inner Exploration Retreat", Feb 2018

Hosting a destination retreat had been a long time dream for me, but I wasn't sure how to handle the details and logistics.


Cathy was the perfect balance of professionalism and clarity combined with warmth and caring.   Cathy not only found the perfect location she completely stayed on top of the due dates and arrangements so I could spend my time planning a once in a life time experience for my participants

Mary Baxter, Born to Move, Healthy Living Through Movement 

I am so grateful for Cathy’s help with my retreats.  When planning retreats there are always infinite details to coordinate and logistics to consider. If you want to create a high-value retreat that runs smoothly and you don’t want to get overwhelmed with details or administration, then I highly recommend you work with Cathy – she is truly an angel.

Julie Zuzek, The Corporate Yogi

Cathy is wonderful to work with and made organizing the Mexico retreat so easy on me. She was quick to answer interested participants and on top of every detail. Her enthusiasm is contagious, she wants everyone to have the best time. Her ability to nourish relationships is a great asset, she is generous with her time and always finds time for a chat. Working with Cathy allowed me to focus on the creative aspect of retreat planning as I knew the logistics were well taken care of. Thank you Cathy for everything, I look forward to planning the next yoga retreat together soon!

Cathy Wassermann is a skilled travel agent with such a lovely and endearing personality...she makes you feel so comfortable and cared for! Cathy will guide you through the process of planning and booking your retreat, with an eye for all the little details and taking the worry out of it...allowing you to do what you do best: teach your craft! I wholeheartedly recommend her as a trusted retreat travel professional!

Michelle Cormack, Owner/Director 5 Elements Yoga & Pilates

We are so happy that we worked with Wassermann Retreats because they introduced us to the absolutely beautiful property, Xinalani. The way they coordinated everything down to the minute detail was incredible. They looked after it all. The relationship Cathy has with the people at Xinalani made the retreat extra special. We were able to trust that everything was going to happen.

Thank you Cathy, we love you, we’ll do it again!

Retreat Properties & Travel Partners 

Working with Cathy has been amazing, She is the most organized person I know and she is always on top of things to make sure that they happen the way their clients want and like. 


Having Cathy as a retreat planner will make the retreat planning process easier as she knows about retreat planning finances, she always takes care of all details regarding room assignments based on the students needs, and she helps the retreat planners to make strategic decisions. 


It is a pleasure working with Cathy. 

Carolina Cárdenas, Xinalani Retreat

Cathy's commitment to ensuring that every detail is managed exceptionally is a breath of fresh air for our team at Stonefield Resort. She is also a joy to work with. We look forward to the next retreat.

Sadia Oneil, Stonefield Resort Saint Lucia

Working with Cathy Wassermann is a privilege! She is responsible, friendly and always helpful. We have been operating tours in Latin America for Cathy´s since 1999. She always has her travel programs and passengers perfectly organized with great attention to detail. We hope she continues working with Amigo 2000 Vacations for many years to come.

Luis Rodriguez,  Amigo 2000 Vacations


That was by far the best vacation I have ever had. I wanted something life changing and IT WAS. The weather was perfect, the people were wonderful and the retreat was excellent. It was everything and more than I could have asked for. Thank you thank you thank you!
