    "Maya is a beautiful soul. I took to her from the moment I met her. I felt at home and had an amazing time during our daily yoga sessions coupled with the beautiful views of the mountains. Agnihotra was a relaxing and peaceful experience enhancing your meditation. I enjoyed the swim and sauna programs at the wellness center, and even booked a massage. Maya's organic food was amazing. I will definitely come again. I had a great holiday!"

    "Maya is a beautiful person who caters to your every need. She made me feel so nurtured by providing amazing yoga and meditation sessions, and fresh, organic home-cooked meals with love. As a relatively inexperienced yoga practitioner, Maya made me feel totally comfortable and guided me through some wonderfully relaxing yoga and meditation sessions, and deepened my connection to my practice. I also enjoyed the local spa and sauna and running in the countryside. The retreat offered me space and perspective that I have taken away with me, and the setting in the middle of the rolling Croatian mountains with misty sunrises is just beautiful. I would recommend this retreat to anyone, and I'm happy to have Maya as a new friend!"

    "I stayed at Maya´s house for four days in August 2016. It was a last-minute decision that was one of the best I have made in a long time. The place is quiet, clean, and friendly. Maya is an exceptional and professional yoga instructor who teaches a traditional lifestyle of yoga from her heart, and the Agnihotra ritual immerses you into the magic and mystery of meditation. Maya makes you feel at home, and she has an exceptional and wonderful energy. I also enjoyed the daily spa and sauna a lot. The food is especially good. This is a graceful and inspiring experience that I will treasure forever. So if you are considering a trip to Croatia, do not hesitate and go to Maya Yoga House!"

    "I had a fantastic time in a stunning location. The views from the Maya Yoga House are just amazing. Because the house is on the hill, the views of the green valleys, hills, forests, flowers, sunrises, and sunsets are just breathtaking. To do yoga, meditation, and Agnihotra sessions in that kind of environment is something special. I felt so happy and relaxed. Thank you Maya Yoga House."

    "I loved the yoga classes, especially yoga Nidra. They made me feel so relaxed. The afternoons spent in the wellness center were exactly what I needed. The pools and the many kinds of sauna experience go perfectly together with yoga practice. The Agnihotra fire ceremony in the evening was magical. Next year for sure, I am coming back. "

    "I had a great time that I will recommend it to all of my friends. Next year though, I will rent a car. Because the house is on the hill, it is better to rent a car if you want to do your own stuff. "

  • Review by Elsa from France

    "Thank you very much for a beautiful couple of days in paradise. I have been to a lot of yoga retreats around the world but this was something special. It was a very warm and personal experience. I had a bit of a problem waking up very early at sunrise for the fire ceremony but at sunset, I did not miss one Agnihotra session. I felt very relaxed and peaceful afterwards. I am still using the ashes from the Agnihotra fire ceremony for bathing and my plants. I cannot wait to come again next year with my friends. Namaste."

    "As a beginner at yoga practice, I did not know what to expect. I have never been to a yoga retreat before this one and I am so glad that I did it. Thank you Maya for making my holiday a wonderful experience. I felt your passion from every yoga class, fire ceremony, and dish that you have made. I am looking forward to seeing you again next season. I wish you and your babies in the garden all the best. Take care."
