    10 out of 10

    "From arriving at the retreat, all my fears disappeared, and I was transported into a state of utter calm. The staff were welcoming, the surroundings beautiful, and the outside world switched off. Our first yoga session was enlightening, a lovely meet and greet followed by a lovely group of people - Kundalini yoga with oils, breathing and mantra to awaken the body and the mind. The rest of the weekend just followed with a serene atmosphere. Fantastically yummy healthy food, lots of laughing, and sharing with wonderful like-minded people, activities from gym classes to pool sessions, and obviously, wonderful yoga sessions with Sophie from Vinyasa to Yin and Vinyasa again. I came away from the weekend feeling truly rejuvenated and rested, my yoga practice deepened, and my self-awareness restored. I cannot recommend a retreat with Sophie enough."
