"Lovely retreat in nature"

I loved this retreat. Jo is a fantastic, warm and fun teacher. We were with a lovely group of people and I enjoyed the yoga lessons, the fantastic view, the lovely vegan food, and swimming in the lake.

Just returned from the weekend in Shambala in Sweden, felt like a week, I literally cannot believe it was just 2 full days from arrival to departure , we have done so much in that time, and relaxed/chilled to such an extent I'm still smiling today, Jo!

It's such a magical place, so safe and secluded, I will def be back! We had an amazing bunch of like-minded people, of every nationality, wonderful yoga classes overlooking the lake, and Jo and Faith were fantastic yoga teachers, encouraging and adjusting our poses with great individual attention tho we were of very mixed abilities. Highlights were sharing stories in the idyllic floating sauna then swimming in the lake... skinny dipping for some! Food was so tasty and delicious it made me determined to be more adventurous with what I cook, the rosemary bread was to die for! Sharing this all with my lovely daughter was the cherry on the cake! But would happily come on my own, everyone was so friendly and inclusive.

Took currency with me but apart from transport and sheet hire ( and an illicit ice cream!) there was nothing to spend money on so brought it mostly home, saving it for my next trip there!

Thanks Jo and Faith for an amazing experience!

I’m still feeling the zen from a fabulous retreat with Jo and co at Shambala Gatherings in Sweden. My body felt sooooooo loved and nutured from the wonderful yoga - and the divine food and the glorious setting added to the bliss.

It was such a lovely group of people to share the stay with – a short stay but so full of wonderfulness. Thanks Jo for making it happen! And thanks to all the beautiful souls who were part of the weekend.

To start my vacation with this amazing retreat with Jo, her wonderful assistant Faith and all the other beautiful women at Shambala (Borntorpet, Sweden) was probably the best thing I could have done. The environment was so calm and beautiful and the yoga classes very inspiring. Thank you for a wonderful experience and I hope to be able to attend more of Jo's classes in the future.

Started my summer vacation right by having a lovely time at Shambala this weekend. Jo and Faith were the best of teachers, encouraging, calming and energizing. The surroundings were perfect for letting go of all that lingering tension and stress filling my mind at the moment. Went home feeling calm, happy and motivated to keeping up with my yoga practice. Thank you!

I've just had the most wonderful yoga retreat with Jo in Sweden. She was really great and improved my practice considerably. I learned much and understood more. She catered very effectively for all levels of practice. It was tremendous fun and I've come back relaxed, full of energy and laughter. Thank you.
