"Great instructor. Awesome retreat"
Maria was very knowledgeable and approachable. The group size was small and just right so everyone knew each other. The experience really took me to another world of possibilities and I'll always be grateful for that. The retreat is not only about body but also the mind and the soul. I am definitely taken by surprise with the depth and comprehensiveness of the retreat and it really adds to my philosophy in life.

This retreat was an incredibly rich experience both humanly and corporately. Maria, a golden person, was present to introduce us to the global philosophy of yoga, to accompany us in the evolution of the postures, to feel from day to day a body-mind alignment that developed over the course of the retreat. I recommend it to anyone who wants to make a break, to work on oneself, who wants to see more clearly in their life. Thank you 1000 times for this life experience, everything was perfect.
