    A million thank-yous

    PROS Pros: Sandra, I thank the moon and the stars for the crossing of our paths. United with a group of strong, intelligent and beautiful Amazonians, we opened our hearts and our minds to the endless possibilities and mysteries that nature has to offer. I am taking what I have learnt from you and shall continue my search inwards, while eminating my love outwards. I am looking forward to our future encounters. Thank you Sandra, thank you to you all!

    PROS Pros: Die Lage des Hotel ist sehr gut schnell vom Flughafen zu erreichen. Zimmer sehr sauber und neu. Wer einen kurzen Trip nach Palma machen möchte und nicht die Abgeschiedenheit sucht ist hier richtig. Sandra macht sehr gute Anleitungen zur Meditation und kennt sich perfekt mit Chakralesungen aus und kann dies auch gut erklären und wiedergeben. Die Meditationen werden mit leichten Yogaübungen ausgeführt. Wer hier ein straffes 90 minütiges yogaprogramm erwartet ist nicht richtig. Wer jedoch Meditation lernen möchte bzw dies vertiefen möchte kommt hier voll auf seine Kosten. Man kann evtl in der Beschreibung mehr hervorheben das die Meditation mehr im Vordergrund steht. Ich habe auf jedenfall was mitgenommen das ich auch gut umsetzen kann. Leute die einen Kurztrip suchen und nicht die völlige Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit , die Ihre Meditationen vertiefen möchten, mehr über Chakren lernen möchten sind hier richtig. Es ist auch zu erwähnen, das man im Hotel gut schlafen kann, es ist Ruhe und nicht die ganze Zeit Lärm.

    Review by Jacqueline De Bruijn from Netherlands

    Sandra op Mallorca geeft géén yoga !!!

    CONS Cons: Sandra geeft geen yoga, had last van haar mestruatie, deelde al haar problemen en was hier duidelijk verbaal bij aanwezig! Dus te weinig waar voor je geld, niet doen zou ik zeggen, kun je zelf beter met een youtube filmpje. De locatie was prima, sluit alleen niet aan bij yoga/medidatie en de rust die je daarbij zou verwachten dit vond Sandra zelf ook waarom dat het wel geboekt was is mij een raadsel. Het is een groot hotel met veel mensen , half pension was niet nodig geweest er waren genoeg gelegenheden in de buurt die rustiger waren en beter aansluiten. Uiteindelkijk wilde Sandra 1 persoon ( mij) niet aanmelden via de site, zodat zij geen afdracht hoefde te doen aan Booking, hierop ben ik duidelijk ondervraagd en dat was niet prettig! Wat deed Sandra wél als zij les gaf: veel zelf praten en medidatie geven, af en toe een Chi Qong oefening, chakra's lezen.

    PROS Pros: De andere 2 dames waren prima gezelschap.

    "I truly enjoyed the 4 days spent at Riva del Garda for the Mastery wellness and Chi yoga retreat. First thing obvious is the location: Riva del Garda is a beautiful place, breathtaking at first sight of the lake and then it's so pleasant to be surrounded by the serenity of the lake and the mountains. Plus Sandra, the organizer and yoga teacher, brought us to the most pretty places to practice yoga, ride a bike, have lunch or a mastery class so that we could even more appreciate the location, and benefit from it. Then what made the magic of it is the encounter with Sandra, who gave each participants the opportunity of a true and meaningfully encounter even on a few days. I realized it's a precious gift not so frequent to really meet someone who share generously his or her life experience in a way that may benefit those who listen. Finally I enjoyed the yoga class and teaching about Chakra, I mostly retain a new opening on how to enjoy life and people encounters but that would be a different experience for each participants I think. Thank you Sandra, I went back to work energized after the retreat."

    "Dearest Sandra, For reasons I cannot comprehend, it took me more than 2 months to find the right time and spirit to actually write you this email and send you the deep respect and gratitude that is in my heart all the time. I have truely felt your presence and light in my heart all the time. Whenever I read your book or use the pendulum you gave me, I feel you near. I send you my deepest love and warmth ! iI truely as been life changing to be part of your yoga retreat in january. I live with your lessons every day. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! Thank you so much for all the love, wisdom and light that you share!!! The magic of your teachings is truely, Empowering, Healing, Lighthearted, Generous. Thank you Sandra for this wonderful, life changing experience!!"

    "The four days seemed like weeks. Intense teachings and being together -full of wisdom, knowledge of being with nature, sparkling and light hearted, filled with stories, laughter and playfullness too. Your words keep on resonating in me “Feel the amount of saliva in your mouth”, “walk with nature” “stay on the green live line”. I feel cleansed and the yoga retreat healed my entire system. "

    "You are a wonderful teacher. Open en generous in sharing deep shaman knowledge, creating strong memories going to a sacred monastry. Intensely enjoing every moment. Being in nature at the ocean. In front of the majestic catheral of Palma. Teaching tai chi on the roofed terrace in the gentle rain. It has been a great, warm and intense experience. I feel deeply warmed by all teachings and insights. Happy to find how happy I can be , just being at peace with myself, face in the wind, picking up shells from the sand and touching trees. You are a true teacher, very generous in your teachings. Empowering you to walk your own path. Teaching you how to cleanse and heal yourself. And how to stay in your own energy. "

    "There is a time and place for everything. This certainly was the best possible treat, at the right time and place for me. I have already recommended many friends to dive into this 4 day course, which feels like weeks. And surely will have a deep and life changing effect. No doubt these profound lessons will stay with me. The feeling of home coming is so strong, it naturally draws me back in. Sandra thank you thank you a thousand times for all your generosity, warmth and being there! All lessons learned in this dense teachings, are stil unfolding in my daily live, opening new understanding of the pages, alineas, sentences that you taught every day. Reading the book Yoga and the Art of Self Healing proves to be the best possible way to help unfolding all knowledge, keeping it alive and make it easy to make it part of my life. xxx Love!! "

    "Total cleansing of my mind and body. Peace overcame my being. The pains and blotting in my tummy were gone. I now understand what I need to do in my life. I understand more about my husband Drew. I felt we can be more connected as we were when we first met!"

    "I am a physician who was moved by Sandra during her yoga class, which she teaches at the resort. Something drew me to her and I asked if she would be able to fit me in for a massage session today. I actually had tears in my eyes after the yoga class. We have now completed our session together and I feel peace with my inner being. I feel that I will have more self confidence in who I am and how I live my daily life. It is not every day that you meet special people like Sandra. She has a beautiful gift and the ability to connect with people and take them to another level. I am looking forward to visiting her in the future at her healing temple project and I will definitely read her book and give it to my special friend as a gift. I wish her and her loved ones much peace and love."

    "I met you in 2010 at the Dreams Villamagna resort. I purchased your book there, and I wanted to thank you. The meditations, affirmations, and information in your book truly changed my life. I had been trying to get pregnant and we had just given up and decided to take a vacation. When we got back, I found out I was pregnant with our son. I have read your book at least 5 times and have used the affirmations many times over the last 3 years. We would like to take our family on a vacation to Mexico in the future. It would be my honor to someday return to Mexico and take a class from you. Thank you again. If our paths do not cross again, I wanted you to know that your book and yoga on the beach had a positive impact on my life."
