    "Maya is a beautiful person who caters to your every need. She made me feel so nurtured, providing amazing yoga and meditation sessions and freshly home-cooked organic meals cooked 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 practise. I also enjoyed the local spa/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 4 days in August 2016. 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 teaching from her heart a traditional lifestyle of yoga, and the agnihotra ritual immerse yourself into the magic and mystery of meditation. Maya makes you feel home , and she has an exceptionnel wonderfull energy. I also enjoyed a lot to have every day spa and sauna. Food is especially good. A graceful inspiring experience I will treasure for ever. So if you are considering a trip to Croatia, go there and do not hesitate!"

    "I had a fantastic time in a stunning location. The views from the 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 breath taking. 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."

    "Loved yoga classes and especially yoga Nidra. Made me feel so relaxed. Afternoons spend in wellness center were exactly what i needed. Pools and many kind of sauna experiences go perfectly together with yoga practices. Agnihotra fire ceremony at evening was magical. Next year for sure I am coming back. "

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

    "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. Had a bit of a problem to wake up very early at sunrise for fire ceremony, but at sunset I did not miss one Agnihotra session. I felt afterwards very relaxed and peaceful. The ashes from Agnihotra fire ceremony I am still using for bathing and my plants. Can not wait to come again next year with my friends. Namaste."

    "As a beginner at yoga practice, did not know what to expect, never been to one yoga retreat. So glad 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. Looking forward to see you again next season. Wish you and your babies in the garden all the best. Take care. "
