    "It was a wonderful retreat. I arrived, recovering from flu, exhausted and with January blues and left zinging with energy, feeling happier and healthier than I have in ages.Sunnah's sessions were perfect. She is an ideal teacher offering expert guidance with a great sense of humour and smiles. It was a lovely mix between yoga classes with just the right level of challenge and peaceful meditation and breathing sessions.There was no time to be bored but enough time to rest and read a book. The food was delicious, the dormitories were warm and comfortable and the setting was beautiful!", edited

    "I had a great week, Sunnah is a great yoga teacher and has helped me rediscover some of my ability, I will be trying to get to her classes in London now that Im home. I fell in love with Mani Greece I had a fantastic time exploring the local villages and going to the beach with the other lovely people I met on the retreat. Absolute recommendation!", edited
