    Review by Catherine Denison from United Kingdom

    Jewel of Yoga retreat, UK

    CONS Cons: Nothing.

    PROS Pros: Everything! I have never been on a yoga retreat and am a complete beginner. This holiday was much more than I expected and Kristy is a wonderful teacher/cook/organiser etc. The group gelled really well. It was like I already knew them. Kristy helped me, at a level that I understood, when and where appropriate. A real holiday to cherish in my memories. Doing yoga and mediation in different locations around the site worked brilliantly for me. I especially loved lying in the long grass, with a beautiful sky above and warm sun on my face, for one of the meditations.

    Wonderful retreat with caring leader and group

    PROS Pros: The location was amazing - beautiful wooded areas for camping and yoga practice. Kristy was a perfect host for the weekend. She made it a welcoming space for everyone, adjusted the schedule as the group required, created a caring, community environment for all and cooked tasty food to suit the needs of the individuals and group. Would highly recommend to anyone who would like a non-traditional yoga retreat which focuses on nature and people rather than on luxury accommodations. (If you like sleeping in a tent - which I do! - it feels luxurious anyway.)

Testimonials

  • Review by Debbie Ryland from UK

    "Kristy has been teaching yoga to a client that I support with autistic spectrum disorders. There is a real sensitivity that Kristy puts across in such simple down to earth ways, giving clear instructions and positive encouragement, adapting her teaching to the needs of the individual. My client looks forward to the private one to one class and is comfortable with Kristy, following her instructions and maintaining focus which is in part due to her teaching abilities. The class helps to maintain flexibility and can be deeply relaxing and calming. I would not hesitate in recommending her to others."

  • Review by Veronica Potta from the UK

    "I spent today at Kristy's yoga retreat day and I cannot think of a better way to spend a Sunday. It was a chance to step out of my busy life and focus on myself by working with all aspects of my body and mind. Kristy's friendly and knowledgeable teachings put everyone at their ease. It was a treat to have the time to enjoy a space between each asana, an opportunity to look within at what was happening physically, emotionally, and mentally. Kristy's choice of postures meant that by the end of the day, all aspects of the body were covered, blockages shifted, and system back in the flow. The day was varied and apart from the yoga, also included chanting, toning, and pranayama - all of which led naturally to relaxed and focused meditation."

    "Kristy also provided a very tasty, homemade, vegetarian meal which was extremely welcome. I feel replenished on many levels. My body is relaxed and I feel re-energized. Thank you Kristy for a wonderful day."
