    feedback from previous retreats

    “I found it really excellent….. the time taken to welcome people and set the tone, the balance of yoga and meditation, the ongoing guidance, having a chance for reflection as a group. Also, the food!” Amanda, UK

    “It’s a really beautiful place with lots of nature that helped me to stay focused and relaxed during the meditation. I think this is the best opportunity for beginners like me to learn more about yoga and meditation. The teachers are professional and prepared.” Priscilla, Italy

    “This retreat is a beautiful gift for yourself. The yoga instruction was wonderful – very relaxing. Suitable to all levels. I found the yoga nidra with Tibetan bowls to be so relaxing. The meditation was beautifully guided and helpful. The day schedule was perfect – not too long or too busy. Food was amazing – that curry is my new favourite Thai food! “ Helen, Canada

    “I felt like I learned several tools to help with the life we busy ourselves with. I really enjoyed the love and comfort I felt with everyone here. No judgments. The notebook for thoughts was a great idea.”
