"superbly organised yoga journey on beautiful greek island"
hats off to barbara who knocked her socks off to arrange a wonderful, challenging and varied yoga and travel experience. she managed to attend to all of our various levels effortlessly. we all felt special.
the yoga sessions in her beautiful studio were great followed by delicious home-made breakfast in the garden. also, sunrise and sunset yoga set on various amazing beaches followed by marvellous picnics or dinners out.
we were taken to the stunning unspoilt locations that only a greek resident could know about.
highlights: beautiful friendly island. turtle beach. olive groves. cliff climbing.. turquoise seas--not to mention the adorable dog callum, but you have to go there to see what i mean.
accommodation: clean, spacious and comfortable with all attentions and mod cons. delightful balconies with views to green hills.. swimming in great pools. just minutes walk to small village and sea with all shops and restaurants.

I loved the variety of yoga that Barbara provided. I loved the beach yoga. The aqua yoga was unusual and fun! She generously took us around the island and we had a fabulous experience. Also brilliant were the picnics and breakfasts...eating outside is fab! The breakfasts prepared by Barbara's daughter Stephie were magnificent!
Also memorable is Barbara's little dog Calum, who was as sweet as sweet can be! He even came in on some of the yoga sessions, but I have to say his attention span was rather short, and he kept wanting to leave! Then he wanted to join in again. Barbara was an excellent host and teacher with a lovely calm and friendly manner.

"Fabulous week "
What a truly amazing experience. Barbara is a magnificent human and a wonderful yoga and meditation guide. Her relaxed, hospitable vibe made this week a joy. She arranged some wonderful trips around the island and challenged us a little too. Yoga in picture postcard perfect places. Meditations to ground and inspire us. So much better than expected. My husband and I attended the week together and although he was the only guy, Barbara made him feel very welcome. More guys should do a yoga retreat like this- still plenty of free time to enjoy a few beers at some great little taverns in the evenings!

I had a great time staying with Barbara and taking her wonderful classes. The accommodation is perfect and in a quiet location. There was a good balance of classes, beach excursions, and free time as well. It was a great way to experience Zakynthos and I can't wait to go back!

"A fantastic experience! Must-do if you need a mental break"
Barbara was a fantastic host, lovely and hospitable, always happy to help if you had any questions. She is also a fantastic yoga instructor and guided me through the whole experience and meditation. It was the perfect island and the perfect yoga practice for me.

De week was ondanks minder mooi weer fantastisch! De ontvangst door Barbara was zeer hartelijk en haar warme persoonlijkheid heeft samen met de fijne fijne yoga en meditatiesessies de week een speciale touch gegeven.

"Excelent Yoga holidays"
Barbara - the yoga teacher - is amazing. She made me feel comfortable at yoga and in my whole time in Greece. During the yoga classes she showed empathy with me and every participant of the class. The classes were excelent for beginners and people who are familiar with yoga. Barbara was very supporting and helpful as I wanted to reschedule one class and as I got sick. She took me with her on some trips in her free time and the atmosphere was rather like between friends and not a business relationship. I felt very welcome and happy. Thank you very much!
