  • Review by Janine from London, United Kingdom

    "Cuba for me was an amazing experience. An eye opener to a dignified, hospitable and generous people despite the lack of resources they/ we at times had to manage without like soap, light bulbs, toilet seats. It is not a real problem for us to manage with less services than you might expect; its part of an authentic introduction to a country that is so locked into its socio - economic /political reality. Yoga with Pat I always find to be a special experience, translated onto the rooftop of Havana, the surreal beauty of the beach at Cayo Levisa, I'm speechless. The wonderful fresh food and yoga provided the grounding for what was at times a pressing travel schedule. The outstanding highlights were the visit to Che Memorial and Buena Vista Social Club, not to mention the rickshaw ride there - i will remember that as long as I live. The salsa classes were brilliant fun/ learning, a new passion in the making. I cannot thank you enough Pat for your guidance and commitment into this beautiful eclectic world of yoga and travel."

    "I had a fantastic time in Cuba. It was well organised. There was no hiccup. The guides are good and well informed. The warm and balmy night at the Hotel Nacional was not to be missed. The last night at Buena Vista was a good wrap up altogether with the classic Cuban salsa music. Oh the salsa classes were enjoyable. It was lovely. Patricia is a very good teacher and she corrects our pose when it is incorrect and she has the patience to teach. I really loved the yoga session by the beach at Cayo Levisa when the sun was about to set. Of places of interest, they were all nice and memorable, each has it own charm. Vinales has beautiful views of mountains and fields, Cayo Levisa has beautiful and warm waters and clean beaches and Trinidad has lovely live music everywhere and not forgetting Havana, the beautiful old vintage American cars. On the whole, I would really love to go back again."

    "The yoga was as usual very good, demanding but with the option to take an easier option. I found the meditation was not too long except when I was sitting on the chair. I liked the structure of the weekend and generally the ethos of quiet, ease and silence."

    "Two weeks of yoga holiday with Patricia in Philippines was one of my best yoga holidays so far. The three days of island hopping was full of fun with lots of swimming and kayaking in the clear blue South China Sea. We were on the go all the time watching sunset one evening and having dinner on the beach front. Never a dull moment .Patricia is a wonderful and a very caring yoga teacher and a tour organizer. Patricia always made sure we have plenty of food and she had brought us to some fantastic restaurants. This is a holiday whereby yoga is not the main focus compared to a yoga retreat. Thanks Patricia for inviting me to your beautiful country with such beautiful people that serve us with an open heart and smile."

    "From my general tourist perspective, I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and gained a lot from it. I am very grateful to you for the experience in adding the Philippines to my collection of countries visited that I would probably not have done otherwise."

    "I love coming to Patricia's class. She always gives you opportunities to grow within a posture by setting different levels and to grow within a class by building up to challenging positions."
