Yoga crossed Tina's path some 11 years ago when she moved to Italy. She was looking for a teacher or yoga class in here but those days in Tuscany you wouldn't find it so easily. But they say, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. That is exactly how it happened with her. From that moment on, yoga became twice a week practice for her and she also began to feel positive changes in her moods, motivation and in total balance and wellbeing. She completed teacher training with Esther Lim here in Italy. She's a certified 200 Ashtanga yoga flow teacher and has been teaching since 2011.

When you put 12 strangers together and ask them to arrive with an open mind for an experience they are unlikely to have imagined correctly, it could cause problems. Montine's expertise and natural empathy made the transition from everyday life to something extraordinary fairly seamless.
You would expect that the sort of person who signs up for 6 days of intuition painting would make us all similar, but this wasn't the case and the diversity enriched the retreat hugely. My experience of life is that is often easier to bond with strangers than with someone you have known for a while - no baggage and greater freedom to be honest.
The beautiful Tuscan scenery, the sunshine and the "unusual" but comfortable accommodation quickly removed you from normal life and made you open to the purpose of the retreat. I had no particular expectations and at the beginning, when the group were strangers, there were a lot of self-conscious moments where I tried to suppress any cynicism I arrived with. After 24 hours the importance of authenticity and honesty were clear - why would you sign up for something like this and not give it your best shot?
Unlike some of the mysticism surrounding other sorts of retreats, this was profound and thoroughly understandable. Feeling safe within the group is fundamental and Montine manages this brilliant; however it is the group itself which makes it work. I have always had faith in humanity and this was enhanced by the lovely people I shared the week with.

"Unvergessliche kreative und in Zeit in zauberhafter Umgebung"
Die erfahrene Kursleiterin war sehr einfühlsam und liebenswert und erschaffte eine sehr geborgene Atmosphäre. Ihr Input zur Förderung der Kreativität hilft mir auch in meinem Beruf als Architekt weiter. Das Tagesprogramm war gut gestaltet und lies mich immer entspannt. Ich fühlte mich wohl in der Gruppe.
Der gut ausgestattete historische Gebäudekomplex in der sanften Landschaft ist sehr romantisch und inspirierend.
Ich freute mich immer auf die von einer italienischen Mama gekochte authentischen und schmackhaften Mahlzeiten.
