''Rachel serves as a constant source of encouragement and enlightenment for those who spend time with her. Her accomplishments in making the world a better place are an inspiration to all who cross her path. I highly recommend her retreats. Give yourself the gift of her knowledge and vision.'' -Bonni Quist

"I was lucky enough to join a trip to Cambodia with Rachel and Maya. I can 100% recommend that if you are considering it, you should do it!
Rachel is so positive, and knowledgeable, and speaks the local language which was a huge benefit, she’s kind and nothing short of inspiring. Nothing is too much trouble for her to organize on the trip. She’s open to ideas and just wants everyone to get the most out of the experience. If there were more Rachels in the world, it would most definitely be a happier place! Maya too is incredible! Is there nothing that she can’t do?! She speaks multiple languages, she is experienced and trustworthy. When you have a treatment with her, you feel safe in her hands. She is wise, careful, respectful, and empathetic and the best yoga teacher!

Thank you Maya and Rachel for a truly inspiring, thought-provoking, and memorable trip! We are forever connected!" -Ali Whitmore

"This retreat with Rachel and Maya provided the beautiful & safe space in which I needed to be emotionally, after a relationship breakdown. It was time to ‘put back’. It was a reboot. I found I was amongst like-minded women, where we could be our authentic selves. We shared, we laughed, we cried. We ate, we explored, we did yoga, we meditated, we beautified, we tuk tuk’d, we shopped.... I experienced a plethora of emotions amidst a whole spectrum of experiences from walking with elephants, sunrise at Angkor Wat, the horrible reality of the Killing Fields, and heartening stories of those who’ve turned their lives around and those who’ve turned around their lives of others. A great leveler and very bonding – I found my tribe! Rachel’s enthusiasm & cheerfulness are infectious and her work with the Red Road Foundation is inspirational, along with her joy & love of others. Everything and everyone is Beautiful. Whilst Maya is rooted and knowing, and guided us through physical and emotional places with yoga practice (like no other!) and shamanic work.... I don’t want to let her go! I want to ‘sham away’ (need the t-shirt)! I have emerged feeling nourished, an enhanced woman. I thank you." - Lucy Lindsay

“Having just returned from a trip through Cambodia with a group of women I can truly say that it was a journey in more than just the physical sense. Lead by the extraordinary Rachel Riggio, the journey took us through various social enterprises supporting local children and communities including the Red Road Foundation which Rachel has established. We were supported on our physical journey by the amazing Maya with yoga and healing, who took us on an emotional, mental journey. We laughed, we cried, we shared, we ate and we had the most wonderful experience whilst traversing this beautiful country.” -Georgina Mullins

“Rachel is an incredibly inspiring woman , she is capable of extraordinary athletic yoga poses on the beach with her adoring dog but have also learnt so much . I have seen in the raw , true humility, positivity , and utter devotion to her life values. The Red Road Foundation is the real deal.” -Catherine Rogers

In addition to booking accommodation, they also need to book the in-country flight and plan for your arrival at least one month in advance thus the reason deposits are nonrefundable.The Red Road Foundation is a small company and each reservation is essential for their sustainability.
