Nicolette began her conscious journey 6 years ago when she started her consistent mat yoga practice in the summer of 2014 while simultaneously adopting the vegan lifestyle. In late 2015, she expanded her spiritual practice from off the mat and into the sky with aerial yoga. She loved it so much that she decided to complete her aerial yoga teaching certification with Galaxy Lifestyle in 2016 in her hometown, San Diego. She has since evolved her practice into one that promotes experiencing life fully and presently through all 5 senses; a truly embodied experience all around.

"Great experience well needed recharge."
Great experience far more than I expected. From the beginning communication was good with speedy response from Sean. Good direction for transfer between Malta and Gozo to get to the retreat. My accommodation choice was good, I chose private double room with shared bathroom and kitchen. The facility was far more spacious than expected. The yoga was a great experience, Sean was well able to manage all levels of students, I had little experience but was given plenty of attention. There was a great variety of yoga, Ariel was especially enjoyable. The early morning classes gave a great start to the day and the evening class finished the day off nicely. The diving was well organized and very enjoyable, three dives on 3 separate days pickup from the retreat at 7.45 taken to Atlantis dive school in Marsalforn. Given very clear instructions and shown how to set everything up and briefed clearly on all dives. Very enjoyable diving. On the evenings after the dives we taken on trips to some great places around the island by Sean, this was not mentioned on the website and was a great addition. Food at the retreat was freshly prepared for every meal breakfast,lunch and dinner. No two meals were the same and the food was very healthy, nutritious and plenty of it. This could well become a yearly escape from life for me going forward. 🙏😃

"Super retraite de Yoga"
Les repas proposés par Sean étaient excellents, super cuisine végétarienne! Merci de m'avoir fait découvrir ça.
La villa est magnifique. Les chambres sont confortables.
Les excursions étaient d'un grand intérêt, nous avons visité de super spots sur Gozo : Blue hole, Inland sea, Tal Mixta Cave, Ta Cent Cliffs, Salt de Marsalforn...
L'organisme de plongée est très bien, nous avons plongé dans deux baies différentes.
Les cours de yoga en intérieur ou extérieur étaient variés : yin yoga, yoga aérien etc.
L'adaptation des jours d'excursions selon la météo.
L'endroit est très calme est à 15min à pied de la plage.

"Aerial yoga retreat"
The teacher Sean was excellent patient,funny, and he really cared about the people at the retreat. A truly fine person who went the extra mile. I would love to attend another retreat at a later date.

"Mother/daughter trip "
The best way to describe our trip is by sharing how we felt once leaving the retreat: grateful, happy, rested, energized, healthy, and peaceful.
Sean is unlike anyone I've met -a truly beautiful person, caring, humble, giving, person...not to mention a FANTASTIC cook! He was very attentive and was a great instructor for two beginners. We had the best time exploring the city and learning about yoga and meditation through self exploration. Thank you Sean, we miss you and wish you the best in your journey

"A beautiful and life changing trip and experience"
This was one of the most wonderful experience I've ever had. Mainly due to Sean. The way he teaches, his care and attention to detail in everything he does, to his calm, open, and loving demeanor that you learn simply by being around him - it was just magical. I was the only person on my retreat from a few days before New Year's Eve to New Year's Day and what a way to end the year and head into 2019! He greeted me upon arrival, showed me to my room at the accommodations he booked near his studio, and made sure everything was to my liking. I had never taken aerial yoga before and really didn't know what I was getting into and I could not have had a more pleasant experience. We started by doing some light stretching and eventually over the next few days, I was able to graduate to some more advanced moves. Sean knew and understood my limitations and worked around them beautifully. After each class, he provided nutritious and delicious vegetarian meals that helped me detox and regulate my body, especially after the holidays. He loves to cook and each meal is truly lovely. We did some really cool activities like going to two cenotes, a cocoa ceremony to close out the year, a gong bath (which was incredible and helped me set intentions for the New Year), a beautiful dinner for NYE, and I even got to meet his friends who were the most lovely and wonderful people. I left relaxed and feel truly honored to have met Sean and have this experience. I will never forget it.

"An amazing experience"
Sean is a very friendly and kind person and an excellent yoga teacher. The massage was also amazing! We made a exciting trip with him and some locals into the jungle for our spiritual growth.

"I didn't want to leave!"
As a complete beginner, someone who doesn't regularly practice yoga and had never tried aerial, I was nervous but Sean put me totally at ease and by the middle of the week his attentive instruction had me swinging around doing acro/aerial combos! I was able to learn enough during the week that I would feel confident buying a sling of my own to practice at home. The food served throughout the retreat was all delicious healthy homemade vegetarian meals that made me feel great. The daily trips around the island were absolutely amazing, as we travelled all over Gozo throughout the week seeing both the popular tourist sights and some more "off the grid" sights that Sean and his friends had found including some spots with interesting history and some breathtaking views. By the end of the 6 days I had fallen in love with aerial yoga and with the Gozitan way of life. I couldn't recommend this retreat highly enough and I hope to return next year, both to Gozo and to Sean's teaching.

"Yoga, vegan and sightseeing"
Sean is a responsible host who takes care of individual needs and very detail-oriented. He travels a lot so that he is flexible and open-minded. We can all discuss and somehow customize the daily schedules. Sean is not only a yoga instructor but also has experiences with qigong and acupuncture, this enables him to possess comprehensive perspective of human body. We have also learned a lot besides aerial yoga from the information exchange during the retreat. I would suggest to try his acupuncture session if you feel tense and stressed from daily life.

"EXCELLENT RETREAT "
Quality of the yoga classes.
Great location and amazing house.
Excellent managment of the retreat. REally great activitities a lot of fun
from Great Britain, May 2017
The acupuncture was amazing, I didn't have back pain the following morning for the first time in years. The knowledge gained on the Chinese elements was fascinating, definitely something I'd like to explore further. The horse yoga was a once in a lifetime experience! Value for money I would say was excellent, given that Sean spent so much time with us. We could ask him any questions and receive tailored advice.

The space concept, the excursions, the welcoming of the teacher and his willing.

"Most rememberable time"
I was amazed by the fact that Sean has organised the retreat even I was the only one participating. Since this was my first yoga retreat ever, I didn't really know what to expect. But this whole week to me was perfect.
Sean has organised everything well and made me feel welcome all the time. I even met some of his great friends, which made this a quiet and relaxing but still sociable holiday.
The yoga lessons were brilliant, and it was nice to try out new things for me. Especially the yoga at the farm with curious animals around us was breathtaking. And partner yoga was a really fun experience.
The workshop each day was very interesting and is something I'll definitely keep in mind!
Altogether I had a brilliant time with good yoga, food and nice people. And I have to say that I feel honoured to have met Sean! He is a peaceful and calm person, who inspires and gives love and energy to everyone around him.
