I had a wonderful time on my first yoga retreat. Maria and her family do an excellent job of making everyone feel at home from the very first moment. She stayed up late for me after a flight delay and was pleasant the whole time. I love the intimacy of this retreat as well. It is very humble and small giving you the opportunity to make wonderful connections with the teachers, family, and other retreaters. The town is just a stone's throw away and is very quaint. There is always something to do and no pressure to participate if you aren't feeling up to it.

"Not as advertised"
The only thing about this trip I truly enjoyed was the food. Although more variety could have been added, as well as portions (some nights food was undercalculated and people were left without food) the quality was good.

The area is extremely beautiful with lovely trees and fruits everywhere. The garden is pretty and the house is located outside the city which makes it all more authentic. Bennisalem is very quiet and worth a little walk.
The yoga teacher was excellent as well as all the volunteer staff.

"Genau, was wir gesucht haben und eine tolle Erfahrung "
Da wir zum ersten Mal ein solches Yoga retreat gebucht haben, waren wir gespannt, aber ohne konkrete Erwartungen.
Das kleine Anwesen von Maria und ihrer Familie liegt circa 15-20 Minuten zu Fuß vom Bahnhof in Binissalem entfernt. Links und rechts liegen ein paar weitere kleine Grundstücke, ansonsten ist man umringt von viel Natur, perfekt zum relaxen.
Maria und ihre Familie Leben ebenfalls auf dem Grundstück und stehen jederzeit für Fragen zur Verfügung. Die Gäste haben ihr eigenes Haus, mit einer Gemeinschaftsküche und zwei Bädern für bis zu acht Personen. Wir hatten das Glück mit drei Leuten sehr intensive und entspannte Tage zu verleben. Es stand immer Obst und genug Getränke bereit. Die Mahlzeiten, die von Marias Mutter mit viel Liebe zubereitet wurden waren köstlich.
Und wenn man entspannen wollte boten der Pool und ein paar Liegeplätze den ideale Möglichkeiten. Yoga machten wir immer draußen und eine kleinere Wanderung in ein benachbartes Dorf bot eine gute Abwechslung. Zudem konnte man Massagen oder ayuvedische Sitzungen dazu buchen, die nicht nur lehrreich sondern auch erholsam waren.
Unser Fazit: absolut tolles Preis-Leistung-Verhältnis, sehr zu empfehlen, wir kommen wieder!

"An unforgettable experience!"
Where to begin.. Maria and here team offer so much in 17 days... They put all of there love, knowledge and experience in this intense training to ensure that you cross that finish line and to prepare you (as you wish) for the 'real thing'; becoming a yoga teacher. Great surprises throughout the training training, such as a visit of a Monk from Chile and a full-moon meditation. Fabulous organic and comfy food, useful advice in nutrition and providing ayurveda knowledge made everything complete to me. I am grateful!

It was my first yoga retreat and I have to say that this one exceeded my expectations. The retreat was in a stunning place with sea and mountains views and the house was really nice too.
The teachers were really good, giving different types of yoga depending on the energy of us, and all the time checking on us to correct posture if needed. I enjoyed every single moment.
I also want to highlight that the food was delicious.
I want to thank all the team for giving me the chance to have a wonderful holidays.

Thank you so much for a fantastic week in your beautiful finca! I really enjoyed it. The yoga and meditation was marvelous and the food was delicious - send my greetings to Victoria! Unfortunately we did not have a chance to say goodbye. Now I am home again. I will try not to drink coffee (decaff is that ok..) and I will definitely be more vegan.
Thank you again and I hope I will see you again! Send my greetings to everybody
