"Exactly what I needed!!! :)"
If you're looking to be pampered in some luxurious spa by a swimming pool, this is not your retreat. But if you want to get off the grid and reconnect with yourself and nature, I don't think you'll find a better one. The accommodations were spartan, just as advertised, which added to the "off the grid" feel that I was looking for. But just because it was spartan did not mean comfort was sacrificed. The canvas tents were spacious with a table, chair, and mosquito netted cot. The kitchen was interesting architecturally and efficient and practical for eating and cooking. And the sun-warmed water for showers worked great. The yoga dome was an ideal place for yoga in the morning and the stone circle auditorium was the perfect environment for meditation. There was also a hammock hut that I took advantage of many times for afternoon naps. The walks to beaches and evening picnic in the mountains rounded off an exceptional week of mindfulness.

"yoga retreat "
I was doing yoga for 1 week on the retreat of Sabine. By surprise i seemed to be the only one that booked the retreat. Sabine did not cancel my booking by not having enough attendees so i was having a personal retreat :D
The yoga was a nice flowing sequence, not to strong, but still a good challenge. I mannaged to do a head stand on my own !! The location off the bell tent is perfect for doing yoga.
The faccilities are basic. The tent in nice equipt, don't expect a high level of luxery. This is living in the outdoors, so if you love that.....This is the place to be !
Sabine is super kind and she will make you feel welcome ! She will help you with having a good stay !
