"Life changing experience"

I felt welcomed from the first day till the last. It was a life changing experience for me. It was challenging at some points but I can 100% recommend it.

"Ytt in omshanti"

It was just an amazing experience.. very helpful for everyone i think, even if they want to get a teacher. I learned a lot about myself and for shure about yoga. Do it! :)

"What a gift"

This experience was amazing. I learned so much about yoga, the philosophy, about myself.

The house is beautiful and the food delicious. I made friends for life.

I would recommend this to everybody!

"What an Experience "

After one month in the beautiful mountains in Barcelona my view on Yoga has changed dramatically. Not only Asana Practice, Meditation and Pranayama but all aspects of yoga have been taught in detail and holistically. I can highly recommend this Teacher Training especially to get a basic education on all the aspects.

The team is doing an amazing job where everyone contributes to different aspects with passion and devotion. I believe that it is important for all teachers to bare in mind that yoga is not only physical practice but much more!

Also for people who want to get into meditation more, this is an excellent approach!

Thanks you so much for changing my life and I trust that you will light the fire in many more yoginis and yogis.

As a plus the Staff if putting a lot of love also in the food that is prepared super healthy and with all the variety you can imagine 💙

"Can't wait to come back!"

My 4 days at Om Shanti were much too short. I enjoyed every minute of my time there from the daily hiking, meditating in a cave, amazing food, and of course the wonderful volunteers who make you feel so welcomed!! The house was also very well kept and clean. I left feeling so refreshed, enlightened, and craving more. I also learned so much from the amazing instructors about yoga, meditation, and the community life. In short, my experience was magical and I can’t wait to be able to go back once the craziness of covid19 is behind us.

"One of the best experiences in my life"

The moment I arrived at Om Shanti, I felt at home. I felt like being part of a beautiful family. It was really difficult to leave that place. Being surrounded by people of heart in a beautiful location and nature, having good conversations about life, being served with amazing healthy food made with love, learning & experiencing about yoga and meditation more deeply, what it can bring to your life, and much more... All this gives you an incredible life experience that you will never forget and that you want to share with other people. Thank you again for everything Om Shanti♥️

Love & Peace,

"Overpriced for such a low quality "

The pick-up and drop off to the station


from Netherlands, February 2020

"This place has some issues and is overpriced"

I deeply respect the yoga lifestyle and I love going on a pure, simple, yet delightful retreat after some earlier good experiences with bookyogaretreats. Omshanti advertises itself as delightful destination. Just note that this might not be as professional as you would like it to be. The place is not a business, but a community run by volunteers, some of them kids and not all of them qualified or certified. So if you go there do not expect customer service, nor a professional vegan chef, nor a professional cleaner and no nice garden, but rather someone who asks you the first minute you step in "did you bring the money?" If you do not mind paying 20 Euro's extra for a 5-minute ride tothe station before 10 a.m. this is a good place for you. Also, if you do not mind drinking tea from nondescript cheap teabags and Nescafe (bah!) and wash your own dishes in dirty water in the kitchen - go for t! This all enhances the commuity feel they say at Omshanti. This might be okay if they charged you 30 bucks a night. However, they make you pay 150 Euro at least for a private room with shared bathroom. If you like that: go for it! What is more, if you like the "garden" to display unkempt (not charming) plants and grass, smelly compost, tents and caravans and dry toilets for the volunteers - give it a shot.

"Amazingly peaceful and loving!"

The atmosphere and people were fantastic; so welcoming, gentle and genuine. And the food was amazing - especially for me as a vegan and therefore not spoiled with such wonderful dishes and such variety at all meals of the day.

If you like people who not only teach yoga, but LIVE yoga, then this is the right place for you. I have learnt so much about the practice and my body feels so strong and clean now! If you are searching for a high-end fitness trip however, then perhaps look somewhere else. It's good to be open for things that you may not normally do, such as meditate and chant mantras (which naturally is voluntary!), since that really lifts your stay to yet another level of greatness. :) I also highly recommend Sarah's massage.

"Great way to reconnect with yourself "

The welcomingness of the instructors and guests. We felt like an odd little family. Most people go alone so it's quite easy to make friends. I was nervous before going but it was so powerful doing 5.5 hours a day of yoga, meditation and workshops. It taught me that I am more than my thoughts and my emotions and how to meditate for longer periods of time. I feel much lighter after the retreat. Also the location is simply stunning and so cleansing. There are always hikes or chilling in the sun/ reading to be done. One hike we went to a cafe and lit candles and meditated - it was so calming and beautiful. I loved May's sessions.

"Wonderful place! "

I had a wonderful time at Om Shanti. I spent a week here and I would definitely recommend it. I was made to feel very welcome. The house and countryside are simply breathtaking, the food was healthy and delicious and I met some really great people. Apart from doing yoga and meditation, I also went on walks every day. There is a really nice cave close by and waterfalls. I will definitely be returning later on in the year. The community here really are amazing.


from Great Britain, February 2020

"Wonderful retreat!"

The house was beautiful and spacious, and the people friendly and welcoming. The food was absolutely fantastic - wholesome and delicious. The whole atmosphere of the retreat was peaceful. Each yoga instructor had their own style and I loved the variety and exposure to different types of yoga. Really excellent value for money too!

"Relaxing yoga & meditation in beautiful location"

All the teachers are fantastic, super friendly and welcoming and they really know their stuff! I was really able to deepen and expand my practice whilst here.

The food was nutritious, delicious and made with love, I really liked how much food there was for vegan and gf people, it made my life a lot easier.

The house is incredibly beautiful and set in an amazing, mystical location overlooking the mountains. It was a great place to get some welcome winter sun.

The location is so peaceful and the classes are really diverse and very well delivered. Super superfood. Lovely people. Plenty of downtime for walking.

"Transformative experience "

The instructors are teachers of the highest degree. They are gracious and patient in their teaching of the practices and I feel like I've been spiritually born since staying with Omshanti. The community environment is also tremendously healing. Recommend to everyone. My mother is even going in a month's time because she cannot believe the tranformation that has occurred in my wellbeing as a result of being with Omshanti. These types of places will be the saving grace for humanity.

"Brill place"

Everything was great at this yoga retreat, the lovely people the yoga the food and location


from Netherlands, September 2019

The location is amazing. Gorgeous views, the house is excellent. I cannot think of a more beautiful house to stay at for a yoga retreat. I stayed in the canvas tent in the garden, which was a beautiful experience. The beds in the canvas tent were comfy, the mattrasses were good. The outdoor shower was beautiful with that view!

The surroundings offer a good opportunity for some hiking.

Our group was great, we had beautiful bonding experience.

Instructor Davina was an excellent teacher. She was able to connect with the group, and make the group feel very safe: something that allowed us to open up and be vulnerable. She has great energy and gives it her all to make it a special session. She also is a great massage therapist.

"Totally Amazing!!"

Wow, where do I begin? I cannot fault the whole experience -from the very first moment to the very last. The Omshanti family are incredible souls, sharing their knowledge, love and wisdom 24/7 throughout the entire course. The lectures were very in-depth and covered so much, from the 8 limbs, to anatomy, to meditation, to name but a few.

The yoga classes (accessible to all levels) and other workshops were fantastically wonderful, including the Bhajans. There is so much more, but I don't want to spoil the magic for you all by mentioning it on here!

I can talk about the food though :) It was plentiful, healthy, wholesome and made with love; with every allergy catered for. In between meals you could help yourself to fruit and homemade bliss balls (which were delicious), but to be honest, I rarely did as I was still full from meal times :)

The accommodation was just gorgeous. I shared a room with 3 others and really loved it - even on a bunk bed!! It was sooo comfortable and I slept the best I have slept in years! Each room was allocated a bathroom to share with other rooms and this worked perfectly. There are many bathrooms located throughout the property - with two outside (beautiful) -so it was never an issue to use one.

I am so grateful to everyone at Omshanti for everything. I am so blessed to have met them all and to have completed my yttc with them. I feel like me again, and I have gained a new big family. Thank you so much. OMMMMMM

It is an amazing place full of good vibes and beautiful souls. I like everything: yoga & meditation practice, friendly people, delicious vegan food, discovering surroundings, beautiful masia with wonderful views to the mountains. I enjoyed a lot to stay there and I felt like a member of a yoga family. Hope to be back one day and see you all :) Thanks a lot!! Muchas gracias tor todo!! Pura magia este lugar :)

"My Teacher Training Experience"

Om Shanti feels like a second home to me now - a place I am already desperate to return to after just one week back in England! The course was brilliantly executed, all of the teachers and karma yogis are incredible, supportive and beautiful people and the atmosphere in the community was perfect. I healed a great deal and overcame many issues during my 31 days at Om Shanti, and I learnt so much more than just how to be a yoga teacher. I have grown as a person and found support, guidance, kindness and understanding from everyone around me on every step of my journey. I will never forget my experience - everyday was a special day in which I discovered new things about myself and was surrounded by compassion, love and authentic words of advice. The food was incredible and I can't express how grateful I was to receive such amazing meals three times a day. The house is beautiful and the grounds are a haven. Not to mention the weather! I felt completely safe, secure and at home in Om Shanti and truly part of the community - I would love nothing more than to return and serve as a karma yogi to give back some love to say thank you for all that was sent my way. I enjoyed the small amount of time we spent doing karma yoga each day as this allowed me to give just a little back to the community - whether I was scrubbing toilets or enjoying gardening with the heat on my back, I longed to serve in any way that allowed me to show my huge gratitude towards everyone at Om Shanti <3

"Best experience "

It was the best place I lived so far, better than I expected.

This is exactly how I imagine heaven on earth : people dancing, hugging, singing, amazing food, gratitude towards life, peaceful place, lovely nature, love circle, no judging attitude, no violence towards yourself or others, accepting differences, patience for everything, not rushing, silence, yoga and meditation...celebrating life.

A place where being YOU is enough.

Here I felt right away ,,I am in the right place,,.

My favourite joke was :who do I need to kill so I can stay here longer?🤭

I am definitely coming back. 🙏🤗

"Real people offering a real experience with real yoga"

What impressed me the most was the teachers and staff. How genuinely engaged they where in the practice and deeply rooted in the spiritual tradition of yoga. This permeated their teaching and their being in a way that made my stay in OmShantiBacelona and practicing yoga and meditation a restful, supportive and rejuvenating experience that has stayed with me since. The food was wonderful, tasty, rich, fresh and made with love. I had a wonderful big room with balcony and mountain view that I enjoyed very much.

"Yoga retreat"

I cannot praise all of the experience enough. A beautiful location. The people were warm and extremely friendly, felt like one big family. The yoga, mediation and food was more than excellent. One of my best experiences ever. Didn't want to leave.

Beautiful place right outside Barcelona. High quality yoga teachers, excellent vegan/vegetarian food. Had a couple of very relaxing days here. Will be back.

"This is a special place for transformation"

The teaching is a really high standard. The community is coming from the heart. I felt supported and nourished. The food was great and perfect to support the practices. As soon as I arrived a felt a shift starting and left feeling much lighter when I left. The birdsong and quiet was also lovely. The people are really nice and it’s the first community I’ve come across that’s coming from the heart. The teachings offer something for everyone and it’s very varied. Theres so much on offer that if you don’t feel like doing something it felt ok to miss it. There’s a lot to be learned here whatever level your practice is at. I would suggest trying to do it all to get the most out of it if only going for a few days. After just 4 days I feel fit and my energy was really high when I left. I felt connected to the place and the people and I’ll be going back again for sure. Thank you everyone at OM Shanti 🙏🌈😊

"Life-changing experience"

Paradise on earth. The moment you walk in to the gate of this beautiful commune-based-retreat-castle, you feel completely welcome and at ease. I thought the schedule had quite some free-time, but it fitted perfectly. The food was absolutely perfect, always plenty vegan options and fresh (sometimes from there own garden), perfectly cooked. With special thanks to Joktan <3. Every teacher had there own energy and they complemented each other, with fun, spirituality, asana's, mantra's and other forms of meditation. You receive as much growth and love as you let through, this loving space makes you want to come back every year.


from Spain, June 2019

"Life changing experience "

Enjoyed everything about the retreat, was a added bonus there was a kundalini weekend workshop on while there.

Quality of the teachers was first class and the food was amazing everyday.

Only booked 6 nights but stayed for 8.

Would highly recommend to anyone

"amazing experience"

Om Shanti is a magical place. such an incredible experience. time seems to slow down almost immediately and relaxing seeps into your bones quickly. everyone that works/volunteers there was so warm and welcoming. the food was surprisingly amazing. the meditations, breath exercises, and yoga classes were top notch. I will definitely be back. only thing they need to continue working on is the small details such as more furniture for sitting and relaxing inside, plumbing fixtures, etc. this is minor issue and doesn't take away from the overall once in a lifetime experience

Natalia Anastasova

"perfect place for self-reflection, a harmonious atmosphere"

Location of OmShanti home is wonderful, away from the city noise. House was spacious, full of light and kind energy, surrounded by the forest - a perfect place for self-reflection, detox, a complete recharge with sunshine and love. There were few yoga and meditation instructors, so everyone of us could find a common language for guidance to inner self and to balance of self with the outer world. A big part of the experience depends on yourself, but OmShanti made me feel at home and at peace with myself very quickly, i left with more light and love in my heart. I hope to be back one day. Thank you, Peace and Love to everyone.

I did my Yoga Teacher Training at comunidad Om Shanti in Barcelona. Thank you David and Romina for the most beautiful experience. So much respect for you both! Your perspective on how to live is inspiring. You made me a happy yogi on all the aspects of yoga. The location is also just lovely and I cannot be more grateful. Hope to see you again.

"Bonding with my daughter"

My daughter and I were looking to spend some time together before she is off to Singapore for a gap year. We chose Omshanti coz of its location easy to get to and arrival/departure dates were flexible. We both felt in love with the place instantly when we got there as well the staff around us were very warming and welcoming. My daughter is not 100% into yoga but she enjoyed the nature, fresh air and delicious vegan food. As for me, yoga classes were great , a big gratitude to Boris, Davina and the lovely lady ( sorry forgot her name) they all brought something amazing to the class. I learnt new techniques/spiritual side as well and love the meditation before bed time. Also a big thank you to Rashid and Evan for taking us to and from the station. Thanking Evan for the trek showing us the old church and waterfall . Lastly I love the delicious moreish cacao balls made by Boris. I highly recommended it. It was so popular that it was gone so quickly. Also thank you Davina for the wonderful massage. My daughter and I spent a precious quality time together. We did not argue at all which was great ha ha ha

"So glad I’ve found this retreat!! "

This was the 2nd time I have been as I love it so much! The house is so peaceful and relaxing, the staff are just so lovely and kind people and all the yoga and workshops are great! I don’t do yoga normally so it’s able for everyone!

I’ve been through a very stressful time and needed some me time and it was life changing as I gained a new perspective and let go a lot so I would highly recommend this place!


from Portugal, April 2019

Adorei a comida, apesar de não ser "Allan you can eat" pois a comida é dividida entre os hóspedes e funcionários e por vezes é pouca quantidade. A qualidade do yoga e dos workshops é muito acima da média, vale a pena pelo yoga.

A casa esta numa localidade linda, e é possível fazer passeios a pé muito divertidos.

"Very warm and peaceful experience "

Lovely pace, warm and welcoming, plenty of space as well as structure. Very much appreciated the spiritual / self connection focus of the yoga, and also challenging enough physically.

Truly fabulous massage from Alba. Again, a great mix of technical and spiritual.

Davina also excellent as yoga teacher - not on the list so may not be qualified ? but really very good.

Iga Pielichowska

"Spiritual and heart-opening"

Om Shanti is a special retreat centre as it provides with more spiritual guidance rather than yoga classes only. It is much more like a family, meditating and sharing spiritual practices together. It is definitely recommended if you are looking to connect with yourself and others through those practices. Food was absolutely delicious!


from United States, March 2019

"Beautiful place close to Barcelona "

Omshanti is a lovely community, everybody was super nice and relaxed. Yoga was great, and the food was simply amazing. The surrounding are nice to explore, and there is plenty of free time to go for a walk or relax. This will be very different from many other retreats, as you will live in a community, there's really no privacy and you'll feel completely detached from your everyday life. It was a little bit of a shock at the beginning, but in a couple of days my brain just switched into "relax" and I loved the experience. I think it's something everybody should try at least once. All in all, a great experience, and I would be happy to come back.

"I had an amazing time out for my brithday."

I have spend almost 4 days at Omshanti and had a beautiful experience there. Not only it is located just under a forrest, and i could have a hike everyday but also the food and the staff are very welcoming and giving. I decided go there for my birthday and the staff and my super nice co-retreaters baked a cake for me. I just came back and feel restored and happy that I went.

"Wow from an Irish Girl connecting with her truth"

I had the most wonderdul 4 day retreat with Om Shanti in January 2019. The location is absolutely stunning,the house and surroundings are amazing and well maintained. Its so peaceful and quiet. Staff were super friendly and helpful with an abundance of experience with yoga and meditation. It really is a lovely community of like minded people. The food was out of this world. There wasn't one meal I didn't like. Plenty of options for food,vegan, vegetarian and dairy/gluten free. There is plenty of yoga and meditation classes but there is alot of free time allowed to explore or to have your own quiet time and do as you like. English spoken to very high standard. Well worth the cost. I learned invaluable lessons that I will take with me forever and I will definitely visit again. I am closer to being at one with my true nature and my heart is wide open. Thank you to all and om shanti, I had a wonderful time. Ommmmmmmmm.


from Great Britain, January 2019

"A wonderful, peaceful, kind break"

Om Shanti is the most wonderful place and I’m so grateful I got the opportunity to go there. The landscape is beautiful and the owners and volunteers are so kind and attentive. The food was incredible, colourful and plentiful. The schedule was perfect, allowing plenty of time to work on yoga and media techniques as well as free time to relax or hike around the beautiful area. The house is gorgeous and has lots of character. The highlight for me was the daily workshops which were so special.

Chloe Scott-moncrieff

from Great Britain, January 2019

"Mind blowing"

I booked this place on a whim. Wow, I'm so grateful I stumbled upon it. For anyone wanting to reconnect with yourself, or nature - the surrounding mountains and walks are incredible - this is heaven on earth.

Rather than dynamic western practice with 2min meditation tagged on at the end, there was a heavy emphasis on spiritual, holistic yoga. I didn't miss the former as this nudged me into new territory. I've returned home so relaxed and happy. It’s been the most intense, beautiful experience.

Then there's the house itself. I'd come here alone for it. It's all lofty ceilinged rooms with sunlight pouring in, rugs, and grandiose brown antique furniture.

The place is 400 years old and oozes character. Even the doors are handsome and ornate, I couldn't stop admiring them!

The beds are comfy, heaving with duvets. Everything so clean. There were cosy wood burning fires and radiators humming away. I didn't need my hotwater bottle.

To me, the experience seemed generous & “value for money” compared to other places I looked at. I could easily have spent similar on accommodation at a B&B - without the nonstop flow of food and yoga and meditation workshops.

Finally, those vegan meals - LOVED every single one o them.

My review is gushing, I know, but I can’t give this place and these brilliant people who run it a bad word. They’ve moved me to the core, they're fabulous. I'll be back.

Huge thanks Om Shanti xx

"A peaceful gem in the Catalonian mountains "

We just finished a 4-day retreat with Comunidad Om Shanti over the Christmas period. We have been amazed at how welcoming all staff is there, and want to thank David, Romina and all the hard-working volunteers for all their efforts to make our stay a very memorable one.

The house is very picturesque and full of old Spanish charm, with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. The location is quiet and very convenient for trekking activities and reconnecting with nature.

The food provided daily was varied and delicious, as well as quite creative. There wasn't a single meal where we didn't want to try everything!

There was a daily activity programme including yoga, meditation y other workshops and crafts, and we loved to participate in all of them, due to the enthusiasm and kindness of the teachers. The last day we decided to have a massage as well, and we are very thankful to Joyce's kindness and professional massage, she's a very accomplished masseuse.

Overall it was a fantastic experience and we would love to return in the future. Highly recommended to anyone seeking inner and outer peace and serenity, in beautiful surroundings, and within a very nurturing community.

Thank you Comunidad Om Shanti!

Everyone was very friendly, it was very easy to get to from the center of Barcelona. The house and the surroundings were beautiful, the food was AMAZING and so tasty and healthy and catered for my veganism. The workshops were life changing, omshanti has a very big place in my heart and i will be returning very soon!

"Don't be afraid of change"

The aura of the like minded people who were there the same time as me. I instantly felt like I was with my family. I was very appreciative of the opportunity to meet so many people.

I will also never forget the yoga session with Romina. It was invigorating. It was so 'out of the box' different

I found everyone in the home to be open, warm and very respectful. The classes were inclusive for all types and the location and accommodations were beautiful! The volunteers and staff were very attentive and friendly. I have allergies and they were super accommodating, helpful and made my stay at Omshanti relaxing and pleasant. Will def visit again!

from Great Britain, November 2018

"Wasn’t what I thought it would be but took some positives "

I was looking for a break from work as Work has been super stressful, pushing me beyond my limits. The main things for me was to relax, re-energise and get back to myself.

At Omshanti there were many things I loved:

- the food was fresh,healthy, vegetarian/vegan, delicious and abundant

- David stood out to me as an instructor, he led my favourite meditation and yoga experience of my stay and I thought he had lovely energy.

- the scenery surrounding the house was unbelievably beautiful, and there are opportunities to go for peaceful walks in the sunshine.

- I would never have visited this town if it wasn’t for this resort and it was really a treat and so different to the fast paced city life I am used to in London

- I loved the workshop where we were paired up and used each other’s bodies to do the poses. I realised it had been some time since I’d connected with anyone in that way and it broke down a few barriers for me.

- it was surprisingly warm because of the heaters despite reviews that had said otherwise

- comfortable bed

"An excellent 4 day yoga retreat "

Everything was wonderful- the house, the community, the food and the teaching. We had a really great 4 days and would love to return one day!

"4 days of bliss."

A beautiful home filled with the most positive, caring and loving energy. The food prepared by the team was delicious and refreshing. I slept away from the house in the Yurk, was a rewarding and truly accomplishing stay. I just want to say from the bottom of my heart, thankyou you to every beautiful soul I met here, from teachers to other guests, my short time was everything i needed for that moment in my journey. I will be back for longer next time, 4 days wasn't nearly enough. Love and happiness, always.


from Great Britain, September 2018

The location was amazing, the people (other guests) were very friendly and the majority of staff were very friendly and welcoming. The yoga classes were very good.

"Superbe expérience"

Le séjour est bien structuré, les professeurs de yoga ont chacun leur style, on apprend beaucoup. Les ateliers et les cours théoriques permettent d'appréhender le yoga plus largement et nous font parfois pousser les limites de notre zone de confort, prérequis pour progresser et évoluer dans la vie je pense.

La vie en communauté est également une expérience intéressante même si inconfortable par moment (quand on est plutôt solitaire), on se sent tout de même dans un cocon de bienveillance, c'est vraiment relaxant.

La nourriture est très qualitative et fraîche. Enfin, l'environnement est magnifique, calme, verdoyant, totalement propice à ce genre d'expérience et à l'introspection.


from Germany, March 2020

"Eine schöne Erfahrung "

Alles ist sehr gut organiziert und passt die Meditation- sowie Yogaübungen zusammen mit der Umgebung (im Mitte der NAtur).

Die Menschen, die da teilnehmen sind alle liebevolle Menschen. Es gab eine schöne Stimmung und viele Liebe.

Gerne werde ich die Erfahrung wiederholen.

Shanti Shanti Shanti :)

L'accueil très chaleureux, la qualité des cours, l'emplacement avec une vue magnifique sur la vallée et la nourriture qui était délicieuse! Je n'ai rencontré que des gens adorables et j'ai également pu profiter de moment de solitude en me baladant dans la très belle nature qu'offrent les alentours.

"Reset für Körper und Geist in fantastischer Umgebung "

Das exzellente Essen. Morgens, Mittags, Abends. Immer mit Liebe zubereitet. Das Ambiente in der Anlage. Due zeitnahe Beantwortung von Anfragen. Die Nähe zur Natur. Kompetente und vielfältige Charaktere aus den verschiedensten Ländern der Welt als Yoga Lehrer. Im gesamten eine sehr herzliche Community. Die Vielfältigkeit im Angebot des Yoga. Es gab viel Neues für mich zu Erfahren (Devotional Singing,...). Die Möglichkeit auch Privatstunden zu nehmen, sowie das Angebot von Massagen und Extra Yoga Lektionen (Kundalini-Yoga).

Desde que pones un pie en el retiro puedes notar la maravillosa energía, un mundo paralelo dejando el estrés de la ciudad atrás. Hemos ido mi marido y yo embarazada de 8 meses, y creo que no hay mejor manera para prepáranos para este momento tan mágico. Gracias por formar parte de el, y hacer que fuera más mágico todavía. Sin duda volveremos con el pequeño. Namaste 🙏🏻

"Beautifull place"

Really enjoyed my stay at the retreat, the house is very special, nature is beautiful and the people are friendly. The house is clean and there are a lot of nooks and crannies to relax. Also walking in nature is nice to do. I eat like a queen, all vegetarian/vegan, the food is cooked from fresh herbs from the garden. I enjoyed the yoga classes and meditation. they are accessible, but also knowledgeable.

Sonja Mueller

"Most beautiful house in an amazing location with lovely ppl"

I really enjoyed the atmosphere in the house and around the property. The building is huge and located in a remote area. There are plenty of hiding spots when you don't feel like socialising and plenty communal areas if you seek company. The vibe in the home is pretty relaxed and everyone seeks to have a good time. The food was excellent. Ever day the yoga and meditation sessions are run by a different person so you get to experience different teaching skills.

Arjen Tillema

"Lovely and great"

David has managed (together with his wife) to create a real nice environment for a great yoga and meditation experience. Beautiful setting. Many different trainers, which is nice. Positive attitude and atmosphere. David is a humble soft spoken person who radiates wisdom, although he would not acknowledge that. Fact that they also organize walks, have massage etc adds to the experience.

This is a basic place, do not expect luxury. The luxury is the setting and the people. And the beds are good enough :-)

"BEST place for 200hrs Hatha yoga teacher Training!"

When I first arrived at the community center I must have been sleeping, because after 4 weeks of the yttc I am awaken and aware of all the beauty life has to give us. Being able to be present at all moments. Comunidad Om Shanti is truly the most amazing place I have ever been to. All of the teachers are beautiful souls, are extremely qualified and speaking and listening only from their hearts. I have learned so much during the hatha yoga teacher training, more than I could ever wish for (and I cannot even begin to explain, you have to experience for yourself!). I instant felt a deep connection to every heart and soul during the yttc and now I feel part of this beautiful family. Really a lifetime experience, thank you! Hari Om!!

Janka Nölle

from Germany, May 2019

"Most amazing experience I've ever made!"

The YTTC at OM Shanti was an unforgettable experience! All the people who live at Om Shanti are so amazing, warm hearted and nice. I felt welcome fro the moment I arrived and it didn't change. There was such a strong feeling of community, love and being a family that I have never experienced before! Every meal, every activity we did was feeling home.

The house and its location are incredibly beautiful, couldn't believe it for the first few days. There is so much space, beautiful nature and a vibe that couldn't be more positive.

The classes were really nice, well organized and structured focussing on all the most important topics. I learnt so much in these 4 weeks that after them I actually felt ready to teach, which seemed impossible before I started. You feel that they really put so much thought and love into the YTTC!

I feel like I grew so much at Om Shanti, on every possible level of life! I would really recommend this YTTC to anyone who wants to have an excellent experience getting deeper into the world of Yoga, Meditation, community living!

"The perfect retreat to look after your body, mind and soul"

I liked it very much that each of the volunteers running the practices have their own style so that makes every experience very enriching and diverse. They usually focus in the spiritual side of yoga which for me was eye-opening and very much appreciated.

The food is amazing, so nourishing, you can tell is prepared with so much love every day.

The schedule is also perfect - you start the day with meditation and yoga before a delicious breakfast. Then you have time to either chill out or go for a hike in the surrounding area - there're different routes to the river, to a small waterfall and the caves. Lunch is again amazing and you can have it in the sun if the weather is nice. Time for a nap, or perhaps you want to treat yourself to a massage. There's always a workshop before dinner, and the evening meditation afterwards.

It's a big house located in a hill with view to the mountains in the opposite side. The town is a 20 min stroll in case you need to buy something.

I totally recommend this retreat.

"Peace "

I can't select and review one instructor as they were all wonderful, they all had something different to offer. I felt comfortable from arrival, the rooms were clean and well kept. I truly got to disconnect, I didn't have to charge my phone for 3 days, it's a little haven. Totally enriching experience to be surrounded by a group of supportive and open minded people immersed in nature. The schedule was perfectly balanced and I left feeling renewed and restored. Thank you Om Shanti!

Mir gefiel tatsächlich alles gut. Es herrscht eine achtsame Stimmung, die Lage ist wunderschön zurückgezogen mitten in der Natur - sehr entschleunigend - das Essen ist unglaublich gut und mit viel Liebe gemacht, die Tagesstruktur ist gut ausbalanciert zwischen Aktivitäten und Freiraum, Meditation und Yoga wurden toll angeleitet, jede_r wurde gesehen und zu guter letzt, alle die dort arbeiten sind einfach sehr lieb, hilfsbereit und mit viel Herzblut dabei. Ich habe es sehr genossen! :)

"Very nice experience"

I really enjoyed my stay at Om Shanti. The environment invites to forget about daily life back home. The people are very nice and open-minded. There is an relaxing atmosphere. I didn't have any yoga experience. I enjoyed the classes. They explain the concepts of yoga and they pay attention to perform the asanas in a good way. They correct you, if needed. They give advise to make the poses more comfortable or more intense. I liked their approach. It didn't matter which level you have. The house is very cosy and in a beautiful environment. I only stayed for a few days. It was actually to short to return totally relaxed. Now I know what to expect, I would go back and stay for at least a week to feel more benefits of it. Yoga is nice! Right now, I'm looking for a place to practise it at home.

"Beautiful and amazing place in the Spanish nature "

Everything was amazing, from the food to the people giving the classes (very professional and nice) to the environment (beautiful nature, easy to go on long or short hikes and the village nearby) and the house itself which has a lot of places to relax, read and write. I would definitely recommend going to this place and than go for a week! I also read a review before going that said I should go for the 8 days instead of 5 and I really did not regret it! After a few days you start to get into it and become more relax, so if you are in doubt; I definitely recommend going for one week! Enjoy! :)
