Shivananda ashram (Hatha Yoga)
When Lalita was doing her yoga teacher training in 1994 she was deeply touched by the singing of the Bajans and she followed after from the mountain Arunachala in South India the voice of Papaji (Enlightened Master) to Lucknow where he told her "Lalita you sing - Mind is quiet !" With her total devotion when she sings, Lalita inspires so many people giving you the possibility to dive deep into yourself and feel total bliss and happiness. Bajans are not to simply entertain you, but to awaken you to the truth of what you really are.
from Germany, June 2018
After going through the huge amount of retreat offers my inner compass fortunately led me to Anja and Costas for a wonderful and lovely week of pleasure and relaxation. I gained lots of physical flexibility and learned a lot about the backround of yoga. The fresh ecological smoothies, soups and foods made by Costas with love were delicious and everyday suprisingly diverse.
We were a wonderful group of woman from India, Hoand, Crete and Germany. I'm feeling blessed for all the things Anja and the others shared with me. In between the yoga lessons there was enough time to go to the beautiful beaches to relax and to go into deep encouraging spiritual talks. Namaste.
