    • Review by Sylvia from Switzerland

      "Tired, stressed and in need of some serious time out, I booked a 4-day retreat in Tuscany to get away from it all. What an experience! From the wonderful setting of Bagno Vignoni, with its ancient thermal springs, to the one on one guidance and instruction, to the breath-taking scenery – it was an experience of a lifetime. Days were spent on 1:1 tuition, hiking in the hills of Tuscany, soaking in the thermal spa and reflecting on life. The guidance from Tanya and Michael was superb - encompassing yoga, meditation, reiki healing, clairvoyant healing session as well as a spot of life coaching thrown in – they intuitively knew what I needed and provided it in abundance. Bagno Vignoni is a very special place, made even more special by the wonderful presence of Tanya and Michael. I returned home, rested, inspired and filled with a renewed sense of purpose and love of life. Thank you, Tanya, and Michael for this life changing experience."

      "We booked a 4 day retreat with our teenage daughter with no expectations beyond a little yoga, some good hiking to hot springs and some great italian food! Our visit was all these things but, the whole experience was unexpectedly profound for each member of the family and bought us very close together. Nothing I can add that others have not already articulated far better than myself. Tanya and Michael are very special, highly qualified people and our little family of 3 are very lucky to have enjoyed their teachings and hospitality. Thank you."

    • Review by Stefan and Heike from Germany

      "During our vacation in Goa, India, we decided spontaneously to have a two and a half day retreat with Tanya and Michael. The mixture of spiritual yoga Tanya teaches, meditations, a Reiki session with Michael, and single and group sessions with all of us really helped us to go into and through our processes. We really felt well guided and supported and took a lot of spiritual understanding back home to Germany."

      "Tanya is not only a wonderful healer, she gives sound advice within her clairvoyant ability and can also regress to past life scenarios which can help us understand some of our struggles in this life. My sessions with Tanya were extremely powerful and with the knowledge I gained I have begun to move forward. I have been blocked, as many of us are, and her spiritual guidance has been invaluable to me. My regression has without doubt, confirmed a very poignant matter that had bothered me all my life. I have now moved through it. She has acute spiritual awareness and also a loving and giving heart that she shares with all of us. My sincere thanks to Tanya."

      "Tanya and Michael opened a whole new part in our lives and could make us understand why we want to do this. It wasn’t just our sessions and q and a’s where we could come and ask question or just had a lovely talk. They are around all the time and always open to answer, give advice or talk about there experiences. It was really a unique experience and we’re so happy stayed with them. Thank you for showing us a new part of ourselves."

      "I gave myself a big gift this year to continue my spiritual path in Goa India. A spiritual retreat in the most stunning surroundings with daily meditation, yoga, detox/diet/health counseling, healing, therapy and dance therapy at Tanya and Michael April - The Center For Higher Knowledge"

      "It was the most beautiful journey and at the same time it was challenging, while releasing and purifying old pain but most of all my inner work nourished and enlightened my soul every single day along the deep process and awakened me even more by connecting to my heart in silence I can not express how happy I am by following my heart, my spiritual path and to have such pure hearted and wise spiritual teachers - Tanya and Michael April who supported, showed me the tools and how much dedication and surrendering it takes every single day to raise my consciousness even further My heart is filled with so much gratitude and joy and I can honestly not wait to come back to join your spiritual retreat next year."

      "The accommodation at Patnem beach under my spiritual retreat was a beautiful located guesthouse and restaurant with the beach as my backyard. My room was spotless and every night I went to sleep with the sounds of the ocean moving in a perfect rhythm. HOME is a Indian family owned place and they opened up their heart with such kindness, smiles and excellent service. The food at Home was always fresh and a healthy selection "

      "I never experienced a calmness with such grace in Patnem beach area. Traffic, cows, wild nature, unstructurednes, simple living, dancing sunsets, firework in the sky. Chaos meets beauty all along Patnem beach and city. What a treasure to be a part of for two weeks"

    • Review by Anne Burke from Ireland

      "I was very much looking forward to my visit to Bagno Vignoni for my personalised spiritual retreat with Michael and Tanya, having read about them on their website. Although my stay was for three days, it exceeded my expectations and more. They welcomed me warmly into their home village. I had wonderful meditation and yoga classes, developed by Tanya herself, in the most natural way; beneath the trees and sunny skies of the beautiful Bagno Vignoni. Tanya provided me with valuable tools to take home with me in order to continue on my spiritual path through yoga and meditation. Michael's knowledge and experience is very interesting and insightful, which gave me lots of food for thought. This was a truly unique and life-affirming experience that I'll never forget."

    • Review by Susanja Catriona Beatrix Nielsen from Denmark, Sweden

      "I had the pleasure of spending one week with Tanya and Michael in beautiful Bagno-Vignoni. One life changing week of yoga, meditation, hikes in the breathtaking nature around the village, dips in the thermic water, inspiring and thought provoking conversations, delicious food, and the list goes on. I learned more than I could’ve ever imagined; about myself, my path, and the world around me. And I did so with the most loving and supporting teachers I could’ve possibly asked for. In the sessions and in my daily yoga lessons and meditations, Tanya guided me much deeper into my practice. She gave me the tools and the courage to look inside, and gently helped me reconnect with spirituality. I am so grateful for this experience, and to have found such incredible teachers."

      "A unique experience in a marvelous land such the countryside of Siena (Tuscany Italy) guided by Tanya a special teacher. I have been to a yoga retreat for the first time and it was a very strong experience. Meditation between the sound of the birds in the morning and the breeze of the new day is such inspiring for your mind to be peaceful and satisfied. I certainly recommend to any who wants to join the yoga world to have at least a time with Tanya. She can share a lot of experience of practicing yoga as a way to live."

    • Review by Stella Silba from Italy

      "The work done with Tanya has been very strong experience. It 'happened in a moment of my important and complicated life and her help was crucial to get out of an impasse. What words of Tanya do it is to be able to bring to a state of heightened awareness, and thus of strength, what actually is already in us but our fears prevent us from seeing clearly. Brings us closer to our divine nature and makes our daily dialogue with God full of confidence. One of the things that has always struck me, is her ability to use the right word that becomes the key to open first of all our hearts, and then the various doors of our lives. I was not always, and I am ready to accept her words and to make immediate action but keeping them there and growing them step by step, and above all trying to find our truth in them, always remain an instrument of growth and opportunities to open my heart. "

      "Her courage and her love come directly to us and make us better people."

      "Tanya is a rare jewel and is hard to find someone of her qualities. In Tanya’s approach to my healing session I felt a great sense of trust and peace - Tanya has a warmth and generous patience and found her to be very kind and understanding regarding my health issues. Tanya is very intuitive she gave me great insights to my life purpose, which I found profound. I found after the healing sessions to be powerful and felt a marked difference at the end of the session. I can’t wait to re-connect with Tanya again for my next healing session. Love and Light"

This was the biggest part of the retreat to us. How we were met and welcomed. Michael was a beautiful spiritual guide for each of us, and Tanya was a clear, soft and embracing yoga teacher filled with flexibility in exercises and meditation approach, which she adapted to each of us.

      "I have tried many spiritually therapy forms but it was after the first personal session with Tanya in Denmark I realized that she was working with the highest and purest loving form that exist The Source - God. That day I meet my spiritual teacher Tanya. Since I started having sessions with Tanya my life has changed completely! It has now been one year where I have regular meetings with Tanya and my inner journey continues with Tanya's warmhearted and incredible guidance. It has been the most rewarding personal inner journey I have ever been one and I can't wait to go a step deeper each time together with Tanya. I have finally come back home into my heart. With my new spiritual awareness and by surrendering fully to God I have reconnected with myself again and I can now live a more heart fulfilling and happier life forward. Tanya is truly one of the most authentic compassionate loving soul's I have ever meet in my life! I am sincerely deep deep thankful to her for guiding me back in touch with my old soul which has lead me reuniting with my soul's purpose this day. I'm forever grateful to you Tanya!"

      "I have joined Tanya Apriles yoga and meditation classes both in Copenhagen and Italy, and she is by far the best yoga teacher I have studied with. She is attentive to each yogi in the class – and her guidance allows my practice to develop much further. Her insightful, spiritual and deeply inspiring meditation guidance is allowing for a deep practice no matter how experienced you are. I can highly recommend her yoga retreats and meditation classes. She is absolutely phenomenal."
