  • Tanya Jane Boucher

    Tanya first came to yoga primarily because she wanted to become more physically fit. She was lucky enough to quickly meet Prasad Rangnekar, a teacher from India who was running a retreat in Spain. He opened her eyes to the mental and spiritual side of yoga. It was just what she needed to change her life in the direction she wanted to go! Yoga helped her so much she wanted to share it with others so she took her teacher training in February 2008 and then continued with a yoga therapy course in 2013.

This retreat will take place in the lovely, nice village of Andalusia in Spain.

    CONS Cons: De ligging is mooi maar na een paar dagen had ik wel behoefte om er even uit te zijn. We zijn toen lekker naar het strand gegaan met z'n allen.

    PROS Pros: Kwaliteit/prijs heel goed! Kathleen en Hans zijn heel hartelijk en open. Ik vond het leuk dat zij zelf meededen met de yoga. Tanya de yogadocent was heel goed. Stemt de lessen af op de behoefte van de deelnemer! Bewogen, betrokken en met veel humor!!

    CONS Cons: Negative energy from the host in the classes and on a daily basis,email questions not answered before retreat ,nice couple but need to be clearer on retreat content and maybe if they are having personal issues refrain from part taking as a student because having to tread on eggshells around the hosts emotional issues is very oppressive and uncomfortable for students,take a step back and host.

    PROS Pros: The yoga

    Organizer response: Thank you Elly for your feedback via Bookyogaretreat. We are an open Yoga centre, in which we want to give the possibility to share emotions as well. The title of the workshop, Yoga and Self-Love, invited all to focus even more on this sharing. The teacher gave a daily meditation with the possibility to share what happens 'inside', in order to express our feelings. Because I noticed in the past that this is not so simple for everybody, in our society this is even mostly 'not done', I want to help by setting the example in this. We noticed during other retreats that this was very much appreciated because this sharing heals and creates connection between all participants and does not set us aside from the group, but makes us part of a whole. I admit that my last sharing was very delicate because from the first day I was triggered by you, perhaps you felt this. I learned never to throw this irritation to somebody but to go inside and watch what this means for myself, it is a kind of mirror that projects me what is there to heal for me. I was very glad to find my part and hoped I shared it with love and all good intentions. Our centre 'El Rio de La Vida, wants to profilate itself with this openminded sharing. Our goal is to become known as a spiritual Yoga retreat centre where open and honest sharing takes a key place. Your feedback invites us to clarify better, in the future, what we truly mean by sharing and the good that can come out of it. Hans

    Positieve vibe, yoga in de natuur

    CONS Cons: Ik zie vaak verbeterpunt maar kan hier nu niks voor bedenken.

    PROS Pros: Geweldige, op de groep afgestemde yoga op een rustieke en inspirerende plek. Het huis is fraai en compleet ingericht. Veel buitenplaatsjes om op jezelf of samen met andere gasten te verblijven. De yogazaal met zicht op de tuin en de omliggende natuur blijft de hele week een inspirerende plek om te oefenen. In de directe omgeving zijn er mooie wandelsites. Het Spaanse dorp is op loopafstand en een prima plek om het dagelijkse Spaanse leven te proeven. Bovenal was ik positief verrast over de intentie waarmee de eigenaren het centrum leiden en de welkome sfeer die zij met de gast-yogaleraar meebrachten. We hebben heerlijk gegeten en er was ruimte voor persoonlijke wensen. Deelname aan het gezamenlijke programma en ruimte voor vrije keuze en eigen activiteiten ging goed samen. Voor onze groep was het een geweldige week waar ik nog lang van zal nagenieten. Ik kom graag terug naar El Rio de la Vida.

    "I attended a 3 week retreat in starting in mid June, hosted by Kathleen and Hans. Wow! The venue was perfect - quiet, comfortable, swimming pool. We were 'going deep' within ourselves and the whole ambience, food, hospitality and setting were so supportive of us. Kathleen and Hans were amazing at ensuring everything ran smoothly, even whilst taking part in the retreat as well! They care very much about people's experience and are doing this from their hearts. Thank you Kathleen and Hans, on so many levels.", edited
