"Enlightening!"

Freedom, time to think and reflect, like-minded people, yoga with the sand in between your toes, sharing stories and experiences, delicious food, constant sunshine, beautiful sound of the ocean, mindful meditation, beach life, fantastic hotel, wind through your hair as you cycle, chakra teachings, sunset digeredoo jam session, paddle boarding alone on the waves, walking and talking watching the stars, moments of revelation...SANDRA (thank you wonderful inspirational lady!)

"An Enlightening and Fun 4 days"

Sandra is a truly inspirational lady. I came away from my short time with her with a renewed belief in myself and humankind. The yoga is a lot more spiritual than I am used to and it opened up a whole new outlook to me.

The energy and love of life that Sandra has is truly contagious which re awoke my inner child and helped me understand more who I am and why I am that person.

Trying to learn the didgeridoo was an absolute scream (and impossible to do with the giggles :-) )

I also loved the free time, I hired an old bike and spent time cycling along the coastline stopping off for a dip when I fancied it and just sitting by the beautiful clear waters.

"Food for the soul"

I loved Mallorca and yoga on the beach was really uplifting with the sounds of the waves and great light... I needed so little (no yoga mat, etc), 2 yoga sessions a day (inc chakra reading, paddle boarding, etc). Sandra is a inspirational and strong person and her daughter Indi is lovely too - a gentle soul. I enjoyed the experience and have returned refreshed and with more calm... I think you get what you want from it.

"Inspiring"

The guided meditation sessions were wonderful and the variety of adding in the other activities such as the bike ride and didgeridoo lesson really added to the whole experience. Sandra and her daughter Indy were really good fun and truly inspiring. An unforgettable experience and thoroughly enjoyed by myself and my husband.

"Yoga on the beach"

I really wanted to do yoga on the beach (it was on my bucket list) and this didn't disappoint. Loved gazing out to sea during the sessions and the emphasis on being at one with nature. The guided meditations were excellent. Sandra was able to identify in each of us what we needed to grow and helped support us with the learning. The hotel is only a minutes walk from the beach.

"Awesome experience"

Excellent location with all your needs catered for.

Sandra & her daughter Indie have truly embraced the yoga philosophies. They both wish to enlighten your life and help you fulfil, enhance and broaden your life.

This has been a truly fun & joyful experience.

We would definitely return as Sandra has so much to offer.

Huge thanks to you both, we have left smiling.

"I will return "

Perfect for a solo traveler that has a good fitness level and loves the outdoors. cycling, sunrise yoga, inspiration, reflections, meeting like minded people while re conecting with yourself led by a powerful lady - that is Sandra

"Excellent retreat but not just for Yoga"

The location was incredible and I loved the fact that there was a lot of meditation, self reflection and healing involved. Sandra is very interesting and I learnt a lot. If you are just looking for a yoga retreat and to get fit and healthy then this isn’t the place for you this is for someone looking to broaden their horizons spiritually and that was my intention so it was perfect for that.

"Simply Life Changing"

Like is definitely an understatement when describing my experience with Sandra. I loved the environment created by Sandra, I loved how we were treated, I loved how intimate the yoga/meditation was, and I loved how I felt like I was part of a family. I made three new life long friends in Sandra, her daughter and my partner which I met on this retreat. I definitely didn't feel like it was a retreat. I felt like it was a glorious experience that will ever make Mallorca my favourite place in the universe. Namaste.

"This retreat is authentic, insightful & uplifting!"

Choosing a yoga and meditation retreat is not easy, but lucky you, you have found the ONE! I didn't know what to expect as it was my first retreat, I have always enjoyed practicing yoga but never had much success with meditation. Sandra is one incredible woman who is 100% authentic and has an incredible way of connecting with people and explaining things. I enjoyed every moment of my 4 days at her lovely home and on the beautiful beaches at the picturesque north end of Mallorca. I hired a car so it allowed me to go out exploring one afternoon with another guest and we had an amazing time visiting all of Sandra's suggestions.

It would take too long to list all the great experiences I had, so in summary, during and after the retreat I feel so much lighter as I let go of a lot of baggage from a toxic job, more conscious and connected with my thoughts and feelings, energised to get back into my life and get more out of it, confidence and strength to keep on pursuing my dreams, and very aware and certain of who I am and what is important to me. Sandra has a way of bringing all of this out and I feel so amazing for having had this experience. Don't hesitate, just book! :)

This was a profound experience and I am a better person for having been in Can Picafort with Sandra and co. You are among my loved ones now.

"An incredible experience!"

My experience with Sandra was above and beyond my expectations. I have learnt so much about myself and Sandra has given me some incredible tools that I can use to help me in life. The yoga and meditation on the beach in the mornings and evenings was profound; even more profound was our visit to the Monastery.

She has a beautiful heart and is doing a great service for humanity. I feel blessed and grateful to have had the experience.

Also, Sandra's daughter is a beautiful light who took great care of the guest with so much love and heart. Thank you to you both xx

This was a unique life experience unlike any other yoga retreat I could possibly imagine. Sandra is a very strong individual who lives and breathes life with a rawness, passion, honesty and intensity I have never come across before. She teaches from her life experiences, study and finely honed intuition, which she uses to help guide her as a healer. She sees humans as individuals traveling in different stages upon parallel journeys. The best thing I could say about this retreat is that it inspired a diverse group of women to share heartfelt life experiences with one another in a positive and enriching way.

"A million thank-yous"

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!

"Wonderful experience with Sandra"

4 days retreat with Sandra was amazing, really enjoyed it! I would recommend it to anyone who would like to disconnect and enjoy yoga & meditation classes, beautiful nature, see, biking and spending time with nice people! Sandra is a very light and intresting person with a strong energy, who can teach you a lot. Her daughter Indi is also super nice and caring! We had a small group and that was definitely a plus as the approach was so personal. I am very grateful for this wonderful experience.

Gracias <3

"Sandra is a spiritual master. "

I wouldn't call it a typical retreat. The focus is on meditation and self recognition.

Sandra is direct and will soon see your potential.She gives you many impulses to work on your self.

The Yogalessons are very little. So if you are open and curious to go new ways then you will enjoy it and you will have aso a lot of fun.

thank you Sandra for the way you taught, it has touched me. Lilian

"a good experience, - even if not according to expectation"

I came there with a totally open mind, it was a last second decision to go, did not inform myself a lot and had enough other plans on what I wanted to do on that Island.

so for me it was "ok" - whatever would happen. Sandra is a SUPER Interesting Person and sharing her life Story. I am always open to get to know new People and experiences from others - so that part I liked a lot.

we were only 2 Persons in the camp, a bit strange but my colleague was SO NICE and I am grateful to get to know her too!

So even tough my Review might appear "negative" - it is all about what you make out of it (anything), thats clear. But if you ask me to rate, then thats what I have to say.

With Sandra's soft Yoga classes directly on the beach, the meditaions and talks we did together I really got the chance to calm down and gain more energy for myself.

It was such a great atmosphere and I felt very comfortable during my entire stay.

I can recommend this retreat to anyone who wants to do some self-Reflexion, easy Yoga and wants to get in touch with nature.

I am very thankful for those days and that I met Sandra and her wonderful daughter Indy because both of them are very interesting and inspiring People!!!

Danke!!!!!

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.

Dearest Sandra, It was hard to say goodbye to you. A stroll on the beach is needed to cry and prepare myself to continue with courage. Thank you again for a wonderful experience, you occupy a place in my heart & I'm truly grateful for the opportunity. I am glad I said YES!!! Sending you and Indy love & happiness for the next chapters of your book.

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!!
