"Lovely, peaceful stay!"

I had a really wonderful time, loved the hikes and particularly the trip to the beach! Yoga was scheduled at good times of the day and were taken place at a truly wonderful lodge with one session at the beach. Catering was excellent and Claudia was brilliant at ensuring my dietary requirements were met. I also slept so well in my room! Thank you so much Claudia and Helene for all the hospitality and for a truly wonderful experience, I felt like I stayed there longer than 3 nights!

"A lovely and peaceful retreat"

A lovely retreat in a wonderful location. All the people I met there are amazing individuals, and it was so nice being around them, always positive and smiling.. The yoga lessons were very nice as well, and the hikes were quite interesting. One was the Nerja river walk, a unique experience, where one literally walks in running water almost from start to finish, with beautiful surroundings.. The food was really nice, many thanks to the lovely cooks ^^ And the accommodations were quite nice also. Thank you !

"Samadhi lodge experience"

This was a perfect 4 days. The yoga and the hiking was complemented by relaxation in a calm and tranquil environment. We were very blessed to meet some wonderful people there, the company was excellent.

"Four days felt like a fortnight: bliss"

A fantastic four day yoga retreat with hiking - felt as though we had been away for a fortnight. Claudia is a fantastic host: the homemade meals were utterly delicious and very filling with a relaxed attitude (I.e. it was fine for us to bring in some wine for our evening meal). We all asked for the recipes, espefinally the yummy breakfast granola and the sweet potato falafel.

The yoga covered different types (Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin) and both instructors were great at encouraging and explaining things to us. Two of our group were beginners and the third a qualified yoga teacher: the classes suited all ranges and abilities with Sara and Claudia "tweaking" our positions to get the most out of the classes.

A thoroughly relaxing holiday in a great environment - the maximum is five so there is a real boutique yoga experience to it. Already wondering when I can go back...

"Wonderful retreat in incredible surroundings "

Claudia is so warm and hospitable. Her house is very comfortable and you relax immediately. The views from the terrace are incredible and so relaxing for the mind. You won’t find a ‘yoga studio’ like it again!

The food was incredible and and the al fresco dining in the evening with the sunset is so special. Such a bonus to be able to use the pool at any time too. I really had a lovely time.

It was a great mix of hiking and yoga. Mountains and sea, dynamic yoga and yin. We also had a visiting guest(Sam) who took us through some wonderful mindfulness seasons. The views were amazing, in the mountains and on the coastal trek.

The food was wholesome, tasty and inspired me to try some recipes at home. Thank you Claudia x

"Wonderful varied retreat in beautiful setting "

The experience was really perfect with Claudia a welcoming retreat host, a gorgeous setting and you get to enjoy varied activities with plenty of relaxation time too. The location of the house is really special, set on the hilltop away from other other houses with stunning surrounding views of the mountain valley and the heart of the village in walking distance. The house itself is homely and well equipped and Claudia makes you feel at ease there. The programme ensured there was plenty of yoga, some really well paced scenic hikes, excellent mindfulness sessions, time to relax by the pool and beach and lovely meal times with yummy healthy food. The small group size is great, you get to meet a few new people but it still feels really cozy and personalised. Don’t hesitate to book!

"Relaxing and fulfilling "

Really lovely yoga and hiking in an absolutely stunning location. Claudia was really welcoming and you really felt at home. The days were full but with plenty of time to relax and I went to bed feeling happy every night. Also the food is incredible, especially the home grown lemons!

"Samadhi lodge stay 27.05.19"

The retreat was fantastic start to finish. Claudia is a talented instructor, the routines were challenging but accessible, and I did some poses I have never attempted before. I loved the coastal hike and doing yoga on Nerja beach to the sound of waves crashing. The food! Absolutely delicious, so much love is put into it.

The pool area and view of the mountains was a beautiful serene place to be and enjoy a book.

All in all a beautifully soul nourishing experience 🙏🌞

"Amazing mountain retreat"

The retreat was incredibly beautiful and tranquil, situated in the Andalusian mountains not far from Malaga. Claudia is very inspiring as a person and a great host, and it was a pleasure meeting both her and Ulla, who were there helping with the practical stuff.

We were only three people attending the retreat, which made it a cosy, homey and very personal experience. We had delicious vegan and sugar free food with healthy cake for dessert every night, and they had even made me homemade soy yogurt for the mornings, since I cannot have lactose. Also, great yoga with a mountain view or at the beach, and beautiful, manageable hiking trips in the area. I would love to go back someday!

"Energetic and friendly homestay, fabulous location and food"

Claudia runs these short retreats, she has an amazing amount of energy and welcomed us fully into her family home. The yoga sessions were all very enjoyable and well thought out. Samadi Lodge looks out over amazing mountains and the hiking was great! Claudia's home cooking was also really yummy, filling and satisfying and it was great to share meals together. Overall this retreat was amazing, particularly for the price we paid (225 EUR each for my partner and I on a Monday evening to Thursday afternoon retreat).

"What's not to like :-) "

Reviving yoga in beautiful surroundings, the coastal hike offering fantastic views amidst the scent of rosemarybushes. We had wonderful sunshine all along. Claudia had a co-instructor, Sara from Sweden, doing some excellent yin- and hathaclasses. Claudia is very forthcoming, cooks delicious vegan dinner. Lovely group of people.

"A wonderful and peaceful retreat in the mountains "

I loved the mixture of yoga and walking in the mountains. The scenery was beautiful, the yoga was challenging and relaxing at the same time, and walks were of a length to be a good workout but still accessible to all. Claudia made lots of delicious home-made food and welcomed us into her beautiful home. For me, it was a perfect few days and really good value for money.

"What a dream"

I had the loveliest days at Samadhi Lodge. First of all the location and the surroundings were amazing... being surrounded by the andalusian mountains and so much nature was beautiful and very relaxing. Being guided by Claudia was amazing. I really enjoyed the mix of the more dynamic, faster Vinyasa Flows and the calmer, meditative Hata Yoga she did with us. She also welcomed us very warmly and just radiated with positiv energy. The food was a class of it's own. Delicious vegan meals always prepared with so much love and care and I especially loooved the desserts. The hikes were beautiful too. Maybe the hours will have to be adjusted in the summer months because it tends to get really hot during the day, but other than that it was so enjoyable being out in the mountains and then coming back and having a swim in the pool. Yoga at the beach was also a very unique experience.

Overall I had the best time at Samadhi Lodge and really got to relax, calm down and read a lot which was exactly what I wanted. I can only recommend!

"A vibrant yet relaxing retreat in stunning location"

Claudia is a wonderful teacher, gentle, funny and nurturing with a great sense of humour. She does not not preach but just in conversation, explained how her experiences may also reward us in a similar way.

She made our stay relaxing yet also stimulating with an emphasis not just on yoga as exercise but a life philosophy. Also as a non vegetarian, she is a stunning cook! The food was amazing! I may yet be converted!
