"Great first experience!"
I had a very pleasant stay with Lidia and Desi in Shambanya. Lidia and Desi were very attentive and well organized persons, always available for the group and each of us. A mix of yoga, art, sun, beach, walking, smiles, excelent meals, calm, freshness and sharing experiences from 4 corners of the world. It is with pleasure that I will make an experience with them again.

"A completely transformative life experience "
Everything! The ways the programme was organised, yoga classes, art therapy, individual discussions, singing mantras under the tree, sea beach therapy, dancing therapy and very important... meeting the sun early in the morning. The community was very friendly and the place is amazing: the pure energy coming from the nature which surrounded the place.

"Perfect in every way. "
The location was idyllic we were surrounded by beautiful nature. Lidia and her family were amazing, knowledgeable hosts who taught us very much about yoga and Ayurvedic practice. I can't recommend them enough, I cannot wait for our next retreat with them.

Thank you for such an amazing weekend. From picking us up at the bus station, to dropping us off, you and your family were the truly lovely. The yoga, with you, was perfect and I've been using much of what you taught us already. The art and walks were hugely inspiring and I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation. I have already recommended your retreats to friends and hope to come to another next year.
