  • Review by Alice from New York

    "As someone who has barely done yoga before, Christophe sparked my interest for yoga and built my confidence. With his great attitude and clear instructions of the fundamentals, he taught me all the basics but more importantly armed me with the knowledge of correct alignment. Now I don't have to walk into a yoga class with the fear of not knowing what to do! "

    "You never know what to expect in Christophe's classes, as he introduces his students of all different levels to fun partner yoga, or encourages first timers to handstands, or challenges more seasoned yogis to unassisted drop backs. But with his clear articulation and breakdown of the technical side of yoga, nothing seems too difficult, and you know you will leave the class feeling better about yourself, proudly accomplished and more confident. And there's always lots of smiles and laughter! "

  • Review by Nina from Frankfurt

    "My experience was peaceful, calm, and deeply restorative. Christophe provided a well-rounded tour of the Chiang Mai region. As a vegetarian, it is sometimes hard for me to find good food when I don't speak the native language. In Chiang Mai, I ate like a queen, from fine dining to macrobiotic to the very best in street food. Our weekend trip to Chiang Dao was unforgettable. The waterfalls, meditation sessions in two different temples, and restful atmosphere of our was exactly what I needed. I highly recommend TYH for anyone who wants a completely holistic retreat experience."

    "I have been studying under Christophe for just under a year and what he has taught me has has changed my practice greatly. He has the ability to take complex postures, break them down to understandable explanations of what you should be feeling in your body. It’s clear to me that this is what he was put on this planet to do. "

    "After a decade of yoga retreats I thought I had seen it all - but this trip was one of a kind! Never could I have imagined that a retreat could encompass so many different experiences. We traveled to four different amazing locations, slept in top notch accommodation, interacted with great people - and my yoga practice came a long way too. Much more than holiday - this was a journey. I'll be back!"

  • Review by Claire from London, UK

    "This retreat that Christophe arranged was truly amazing! Best trip of my life! We started in Chiang Mai, where we indulged in amazing local Thai food, then went to the cool small hippie town of Pai for 2 nights, followed by the most unique experience of learning farming and sustainability from a permaculture community, and ended the trip at calm and tranquil Om waters, were we lived on a platform floating on water and did yoga all day. A few sentences cannot describe how awesome the trip was! Well organized, action packed to the right degree, great yoga of course, and lots of new fun experiences. Best spent holiday!"

    "Back home, my day to day life is very hectic, stressful, and full of deadlines. This holiday has helped me put all that aside by going to remote locations that were still luxurious and comfortable, all while reconnecting with a more wholesome way of life."

  • Review by a traveler from Paris, France

    "Yoga occasionally has a division between those who are good yogis and those who are good teachers. Christophe is the rarest and best of these: an excellent teacher with a strong yogic heart. His excellent explanations and gentle adjustments made me feel capable of attempting poses I had never tried before, and with such good alignment! He is one of the best teachers I have ever had in my 16 years of studying yoga and I would take classes from him again in a heartbeat."

    "Between the luxurious accommodation and individualized attention, I loved how easy it was to lose track of time. We were in places that allowed us to forget everything while at the same time we remembered who we truly are."
