Louise is an amazing teacher. She explains the postures in depth and gives each student individual attention. Every student works at their level in a non-judgmental environment. She has a very present and intense quality which I found help me get into the postures with great focus.

This was a fabulous experience for me. The location was a slice of heaven - nestled on the mountain-side with views that take the breath away, far from the madding crowds! We worked for two slots a day (with one complete day off) starting with meditation and then going onto Yoga. Each slot was about 2 hours 40 minutes long but never felt like very long at all! I was new to Iyengar Yoga but open to the experience of it. Our teacher, Filippo Fabbri was superb - clear and relaxedly earnest. We learnt so much. We were treated to delicious ayurvedic cuisine, thoughtfully and creatively assembled by Eisha - food to die for! But we did enjoy some sinful Italian cheese and enjoyed the local wine too (our choice to do so!) We had hikes up the mountain sides, guided by the knowledgeable Klaus and on our day off had a watercolour class with a local professional painter. It really was an experience of a lifetime for me. I've since become rather hooked on yoga - its part of my (almost) daily life and it's helped me as a violinist too (I feel freer!!) So, I can't commend this course enough. I hope it will go from strength to strength.

This yoga retreat left me feeling focused, calm and probably in the best shape of my life. It was my first experience with Iyengar yoga and meditation and, I am ashamed to say, with a vegetarian diet for more than one meal! I entered into it with some trepidation but my fears proved completely unfounded. I had a fantastic time, I didnt feel out of place at all and I didnt crave meat one bit! Klaus and Eisha made sure we made the most of our time in Chiavenna, organising hiking and sightseeing trips and even a watercolour lesson around yoga sessions. Filippo, our instructor, certainly knew his stuff and was extremely generous with his time. As if 5+ hours of yoga and meditation per day wasnt enough, he offered extra sessions in reiki, reflexology and Thai massage. You could come for any one of delicious home cooked food, lovely people, peaceful and stunningly dramatic location, excellent yoga instruction, meditation, hiking - but on this course you have it all, and at a very reasonable rate! I highly recommend it and cant wait to return.
