    • Review by Athanasios Megarisiotis

      "As defined by Mahatma Gandhi for Albert Einstein about the meaning of Namasté: "

      ""I honor the place within you where the entire Universe resides; I honor the place within you of love, of light, of truth, of peace; I honor the place within you, where, when you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us.""

      "In this sense, thank you OmmRetreats for bringing people together from all nations, all continents, all ages, all colors, all sexes. cause we are all different. but at the end we realize that we are ONE. we merge into THE ONE."

      "Ho conosciuto Omm Retreats circa un anno fa, e leggendo le recensioni dei precedenti ritiri yoga mi aveva subito colpito la genuinità dei gruppi che si formavano e l'attenzione nel scegliere i resort migliori."

      "Ho partecipato all'ultimo ritiro ed ho confermato le mie impressioni. L'hotel era immerso nel verde, l'organizzazione impeccabile ed il gruppo sembrava appositamente selezionato per creare quella sintonia necessaria per riequilibrarsi con se stessi ed il mondo. "

      "Esperienza decisamente positiva! Grazie Omm Retreats."
