The combination of the fresh and delicious detox diet, variety of yoga styles, meditation and all the other activities led to impressive results: my chronic fatigue disappeared, I felt lighter, stronger and aligned.

    "Nectar Yoga and Mirella Saraswati created a retreat that allowed for complete relaxation and peace whilst inspiring the possibility for change and development in a fun, informative and supportive way. I came away with a calm and spacious mind, a rejuvenated body and soul and a refreshed drive for adventure and exploration in both my outlook on life and the what I eat and cook. With both of their attention and clear passion in their individual areas of teaching, they made me feel like adding meditation to my weekly routine and cooking cleaner in the kitchen is not only possible but do'able on a daily basis and the benefits have been clear to see. The daily schedule was creative and substantial so that the new experiences and practises have been easy to take home as they were taught in an informative manner that fully explained the why and the how and were demonstrated physically so that they have been remembered and have become a joy to continue with. The trips out were so much fun and it really felt like I visited a true"

    " Morocco as we met some wonderful people along the way and through the experiences - I feel I have made a group of great buddies from all different walks of life that are incredibly fun, adventurous and strong women who shared a like minded outlook on life and a love of laughing through it all. Thank you very much - I'm not sure that the pair of you realise what a gift you have and how much the personal touches that you added and shared have made this an experience that will never be forgotten. Until the next one!"

Not only did we have an opportunity to participate in relaxing and rejuvenating yoga classes, but we got to see so many incredible parts of a beautiful country. This journey was unlike any other and I would definitely do it all over again.

    "Thank you so so much for a wonderful week. I really miss my morning meditation sessions and green drink. And of course the view... I think the highlight for me was the yoga nidra. That was truly special! Also the food was INSANE. I know I probably said it a million times, but I could eat like that forever.. I can still taste those truffles and the carrot pad Thai.", edited

    "During the past 5 years I had the privilege to work with Mirella in the kitchen of the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat, Paradise Island, Bahamas, and we turned into good friends. Besides being an amazing and beautiful woman Mirella is also a very skilled and talented cook. Her capacity to produce delicious food and to come up with new ideas every time, coupled with her good nature made me appointed her as the head of the evening shift in the kitchen as soon as I could. With all my cooking experience I still hope Ill have the chance to attend Mirellas workshop one day.."

    "Mirella is an excellent and very skilled yoga instructor; she is a kind and friendly person who makes you feel very much at ease in her classes. She is very patient, positive and very motivating when it comes to her instruction, which as a beginner made all the difference to me when learning the poses and techniques in the sessions. I had one on one sessions with Mirella and she was very good about structuring the classes to meet my personal needs, her guidance with regards to adjusting poses to make sure I understood how to maximise each one in order to get the full benefits. I never thought I would be able to do yoga or be able to enjoy it but under Mirellas guidance I was able to become more and more motivated, I have improved my strength, flexibility, balance, in-fact my fitness as a whole has improved in every aspect. I thoroughly enjoy my classes with Mirella and would not hesitate to recommend her to beginners but also to advanced students as she can cater to all levels of skills."

It was great for me to really get into the other areas of yoga that I am not so familiar with and it gave me plenty to contemplate and learn, so thank you! Mirella, your food was just wonderful it was exactly what I needed to get me inspired to be super healthy again.

Your wealth of knowledge was a talking point through the week and you defiantly left a lasting impression on us all, helping us to live and breathe yoga on and off the mat.

I think we all learned a lot and have some tools we can take away and bring into our daily life to help us thrive in our personal and business lives together. The gang was all very nice and it was great to know everyone and learn from them too. The food and yoga was first-class and we enjoyed every minute of it.", edited

    "I met Mirella on a surf/yoga retreat in Nicaragua that she was co-hosting. She was instantly warm, friendly & funny. This never changed throughout the entirety of the trip. She was unflappable, hilarious, easy to love. Her Ayurvedic knowledge was presented clearly, she gave us a nice overview of the practice. She also led yoga daily & her morning sessions were a great start to each day. They were somehow both calming & invigorating. One of the things I most enjoyed doing with her (besides traveling around cracking jokes) was creating my own mala bracelet that I still wear daily. She makes beautiful, inspired yogic jewelry & shared this talent with all of us on the retreat. We got to experience the joy of creation along with getting a lesson in deepening our practice using the mala beads for meditation. I look forward to crossing your path again one day my vata amiga!"
