"Lovin' the Burn"

Yoga practice throughout weekend and the extra special Ashtanga fuller experience on day 3. Energy and enthusiasm of staff. Openness and relaxed relationship with staff and clients. Area of outstanding beauty to walk, unwind and enjoy with group and by yourself. Conversations with like minded people and acceptance of lifestyle choices, interest, curiosity and free from judgement of personal preferences. Gorgeous surroundings and accommodation. Extra effort to accommodate vegan, gluten free diets, on site meals excellent. Lucked out with the weather!!

"Time for Me - Because You’re Worth It! (Thanks L’Oreal)"

The holistic approach was exactly what I was looking for & the weekend was perfect. From the moment I arrived & walked through the door I was made to feel totally welcomed & nothing was too much trouble.

The yoga was challenging - & this was what I needed - but Simone was so good at building my confidence & correcting gently - exactly what I wanted as I tend to learn yoga on my own & knew that my postures needed tweaking. Learning relaxation & meditation was really helpful & hints to empty the flitting thoughts were very useful!

The well-being & nutrition sessions with Nix were excellent too, as she has a huge amount of knowledge & freely gives out so much information both for individuals & the group. Nix is also a brilliant cook, ably assisted by Simone & Sandra, so the food was totally delicious & nourishing.

Sandra is an expert masseur & great fun, so the massage sessions made my body feel wonderful & unknotted, but the accompanying laughter was good for the soul!

Sarah came to introduce us to mindfulness & was extremely intuitive and helpful with the one-to-one session afterwards. I feel I have moved forward & sorted some unresolved issues that were always lying just beneath the surface.

The venue couldn’t have been better situated in beautiful grounds with stunning walks. It was a pleasure meeting & sharing the weekend & getting to know the other participants - & enjoying Scottish sunshine!

Thank you to all of you - looking forward to joining you again. Jo

"Oh so good for me!"

The team of instructors are fantastic-they all work together so well, making everything run smoothly. The different segments of the retreat were nicely planned and I could do as much or as little as I felt in that moment. Personally the retreat was all about spending time on me - widening my experiences about healthy food, encouraging a healthy mind and a healthy body. I received a massage which was the best ever - fixing a niggly shouder of mine. I didn’t feel as if I was missing out or limited by the vegetarian food provided either- it was just so tasty!

Recommend you make your special memory...

Visiting my grandma as a child is such a special memory for me. The Affairs Scottish Retreat is now a special memory too!

The yoga sessions, mindfulness, meditation, nutritional healthiness nuggets, friendliness, relaxation and re-energizing experience has enriched my life in no small way. Now whether it’s doing some yoga or recreating my own versions of the food we enjoyed, I remember my first yoga retreat with a similar fondness -which is something special.

The team are so well organised it allows them to make you their priority. I had a great time and really hope to go again.

For anyone contemplating this, can't say enough good things about The Affairs retreat. I attended the Affairs retreat in Majorca back in September and had a wonderful 4 days of yoga, relaxation, meditation and good, interesting and informative conversations about food, wellbeing and nutrition and even a wee metafit session thrown in for good measure. There was no question unanswered. I have dabbled in yoga but was not a seasoned yoga goer. Didn't matter, the tuition was easy to follow, safe and fun. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed and as a guest I certainly felt that my needs were priority to my hosts. The villa is gorgeous and luxurious. A stunning location. I'm certainly going along to future events and will be interested in finding out about next years plans for the retreat weekend again.
