    "It was a beautiful approach about what really tantra means and I am very happy to have done this Tantra Inmersion with Mahassida Yoga."

    "I could appreciate that Blandine and Uriel have studied carefully what they are teaching, and I felt very confident receiving the lessons from them."

    "I have done more of this workshops before, and I would say this one gives a great introduction in this huge and wide topic called Tantra."

    "I am lucky enough to of experienced the Silent Retreat & Detox Retreat, and WOW...what can i say...The instructors were so nourishing, patient, kind and loving...they honestly treated you like their young. They are so full of knowledge and passion for what they do and it is beyond inspiring to be a part of. My mind is blown, i cannot believe how much they have changed my life. This is coming from a girl with very little yoga experience and no meditation experience! I left the retreat a completely different person...with so much spiritual existence and so much gratitude for the world. My soul is alive, and i feel incredible. So clean, so energized and so joyful! I cannot recommend them highly enough, they are AMAZING!"

We did not know what to expect but we are both amazed over the theory and practice we got through this retreat. The ashwem is big and powerful and the teachers are real pros that handle the themes perfect. We hope many people find this retreat and that we together can make an real difference in this world. "

    "The retreat was a life changing experience with lots of beautiful moments, of really self-learning, healing and finding new ways of spiritual living. It was well done by the owners Blanding, Uriel and Angela and it had a great outcome with the group. Maybe the group was a little too big in the end, and I had to upgrade for a bigger single room even if I booked shared room and there was none left to share, but besides that it was a fantastic life event." website, edited

    " My boyfriend and I attended the 5 Night Yoga Detox and Emotional Healing Retreat with Mahasiddha Yoga. Being new to the yoga scene we were unsure of what to expect. However by the afternoon of the first day we were pleasantly surprised. Love was in the air as everyone embraced each other. The instructors were kind, informative and professional. We thought having to eat vegan all week would be quite challenging but ended up be pleasantly rewarding. The food was absolutely delicious. The portion sizes were hardy and the healthiness of each meal made us feel nourished and energized. The yoga classes were relaxing and informative. The lectures were my favorite. Each day was focused on a certain emotion. The knowledge between our two leaders was profoundly impressive. The openness, acceptance and non-judgement environment while everyone communicated during this time was very comforting. We were all provided with notebooks at the beginning of the retreat where I almost filled it by the end of the week as I wanted to write down all and everything I was learning. Lastly the activities in the evening where we bonded as a group amazed me and left me feeling so loved every night. Everything was well timed out. There was a right about breaks while still ensuring structure, discipline and growth. It was one of the best decisions I have made throughout my travels and am now looking to do another retreat.

    " This is so much more than a community but more a family to come home to. You can always expect an intentional embrace, a genuine smile and knowledge communicated from the heart from Uriel, Blandine and Angela. I have been to numerous workshops focusing on topics such as Sensuality, Polarity, Chakras, and many more which have always lead to deep connection with myself and others. Their retreats, held in the tranquil and stunning Amaravati Resort, just 20 mins out of town, have been well designed to include time to reflect on the pieces of wisdom shared, connection with the surrounding nature, yoga, meditation and even contributing to the community by giving of your time and energy to help take care of the meal service. The organic meals were exquisitely planned and prepared with love by the culinarily-talented, Carly Noel, and made me, a meat-eater, want to turn vegan! Most recently, I have attended the Women's Circle and it has been so fulfilling to have a sisterhood made of all sorts of women, who are all open to sharing, accepting and growing together. Blandine and Angela lead the circle in a fluid and feminine way, embodying the essence of the various topics they teach. I love this family and would encourage anyone to do themselves a favor and considering being adopted into it. "

    " My second time with Mahasiddha here at Amaravati-- I really enjoyed being here with the group and leaders. The food was great, the teachings, experiences, meditations, and yoga were all good for me. Overall the mood and feeling created, enhanced, and nurtured by the leaders was made this retreat special. The facilities and pool are very conducive to learning and relaxing. I shall return. "

    " Words cannot express my feeling for Mahasiddha Yoga community in Chiang Mai. I was lucky to find them during my stay in Chaing Mai. I look at the Uriel, Blandine, and Angela as family and mentors of mine. They are extremely impressive people that really live a yogi type lifestyle and has tons of experience, knowledge and stories about their path throughout their yogi journey. They are literally an open book and if you have a chance to meet them, I would advise you do just that. They, along with the quality of people that the community attracts, have all had a positive impact on my life. "

    "Ive been on two retreats with Tantra yoga Chiang Mai (silent 5-day and detox 3-day). I loved them so much Im getting ready to go on their next one soon! The value is way above the price (which is really affordable, especially compared to other retreats). The schedule is always well-organized, leaving space for free time yet full of content and activities (most of which are totally optional). The teachers are expertly prepared, supportive, and coming from a place of pure love. Ive never had so much fun doing spiritual work - it feels like were kids again, playing in this castle that is the beautiful Ashram. Oh and the food is superb."

    "I joined this beautiful place and people less than a month ago. We can do all that online yoga and do youtube meditation and guru talks but not me! I need a real teacher who knows the subject and the real community of real people. I am very lucky to land here. and I'll tell this: everybody can teach asanas, not everyone can teach you how to get in touch with your body and heart. The teacher is one who guides, enlightens and motivates. If I find the teacher I want to breathe the same air he/she does. That's why I m here. There are many facts of Tantra but Im learning and using many practical tools for every day life that help me to get more grounded, heal my physical condition, become more open and confident, explore myself deeper in atmosphere of love and unity.P.S. It is very affordable, workshops are very well prepared and presented, you always get something useful to take home."
