“We spent the weekend at The Stanford Inn and felt that it was a wonderful, magical place to stay. The staff are so helpful, the rooms are beautiful and cozy. We took some cooking classes from Chef Sadhana who is amazing. She explained all of the recipes thoroughly and showed us how to make each recipe in detail. Sid Garza-Hillman taught us life management skills along with nutrition classes. He took us to the market to understand labels to know the best foods to buy nutritionally. His wealth of knowledge on nutrition and life stresses is so incredible. We were lucky to spend the weekend with these incredibly knowledgeable people, they enhanced our lives to the max. I would definitely recommend the resort, what a great experience!”
