"Love House of Yoga"
Elena and Fillippo are darling people and Mariana took such good care of us. Really loved everything about the House of Yoga - warm, wonderful friendship in a great spot for exploration. Don't miss the private cooking class with Poncho, and the Top Bike tour of the Appian Way. And don't miss Elena's essential oil class and specialized treatments - wonderful!

"Amazing time at the house of yoga"
We found at the house of yoga a very friendly and warm soul that had patience with us in terms of yoga, meditation and she tried to fulfill any require that we had. We loved the area where the house is placed, very calm and relaxing. Also, we had very good food provided by the host, extra activities like walks through wild places, bike ride around Rome. We enjoyed to learn about essential oils and how to use them to heal yourself.
We are looking forward to go back again and to learn more about yoga, healing and mind from our dedicated teacher Elena.
We are really grateful that we met her.

"Elena ist eine sehr gute vielseitigausgebildete Yogalehrerin"
Im yigahaus mit Elena und ihrem leben Sohn Filippo fühlt man sich schnell wie zu Hause. Elena nimmt sich viel Zeit und gibt über den Yogakurs hinaus viele wertvolle Tipps, da sie sehr erfahren ist. Die Ausflüge ins Hinterland lohnen sich. Besonders gefallen hat mir die Radtour mit Elena in die via Appia. Als Römerin weiß sie viel über die Geschichte Roms zu erzählen.

"Relaxing and energizing stay!"
I very much enjoyed my stay at Elena's house and family. During my stay I was the only yoga vacationer, which was great because I received private yoga lessons and I spend nice quality time with Elena. Elena is a very warm welcoming person. She took me with her to bike tours, essential oil therapy and introduced me to some of her friends. We also had nice conversations about yoga, buddhism, self development and other things in live.
Her son was also sweet and I enjoyed spending time with her three dogs in the garden.
The meals that were served were mostly whole food plant based and delicious!

"Very delicate yoga experience"
Elena is amazing person, very kind, gentle, positive and joyful, I really enjoyed my stay. The location is outside of Rome, but well connected to the city by regular trains. The food is simple and good. The host attitude is very warm and friendly, she really did her best to make sure that all needs of her guests are met. Elena is teaching shivananda yoga, which to be honest, looks more like some primitive fitness class for senior people - haha, I was so naive, the next days my muscles were burning!!)))) A lot of attention to pranayama, various breathing and relaxation techniques, and just after one week I feel like that rusted Tin Woodman, who finally got some oil on his joints)))
I had full room and bathroom for my sole use, which was really nice. The house feels very authentic and - let me say this - very Italian, featuring many pieces of art, some being over thousand years old (no kidding!). Little boy Filippo is very lovely and social, there are also a couple of Jack Russels and a huge shepherd dog Myrtilla, she was very cute and licking my hands all the time.
To those planning the retreat at House of Yoga - make sure you include bike tour on the ancient Appian way and a trip to Citta di Sutri, as well as lake Bracciano, all these picturesque places will totally blow your mind!
