"Perfect recharging weekend"

The location was easy to get to. Set in the beautiful Kent countryside there was lots lovely scenery to enjoy on a stroll during free time. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. The yoga was paced well, not too strenuous or intense, with a good balance on meditation.

The food was excellent.

The house in Kent was beautiful and had everything you could need for a relaxing weekend. Amber was very accommodating and the yoga practice was adapted to the needs of all- I am beginners level and Amber made sure to include alternatives for me where necessary. The food was extremely delicious and nourishing and I have come away with lots of inspiration to try new recipes.

"A complete immersive experience"

This weekend is the definition of a yoga retreat weekend. Wonderful accommodation - luxurious and restful with spectacular sun sets viewed from the veranda across the open field land and horizon in the distance. Yoga and meditation sessions provided by a very knowledgeable coach (Amber) including calming scents and sounds to accompany the yoga. Introduction to vegan foods - a showcase of the best flavours and recipes. Like minded people making great company and new friendships. Wonderful, enjoyed every minute.

"Simply beautiful "

The whole weekend was exactly what I needed and more than I could have hoped for to help me to reconnect amongst wonderful people and in a stunning location. Amber is an incredible yoga instructor and a warm and lovely person. With her help the retreat brought me back to myself and has equipped me with tools to maintain my peace during my daily life. The food was to die for too. Highly recommend.

Really enjoyed the time and space to connect to nature, relax and unwind. The yoga was quite varied, so good if you want to try a few types. I really enjoyed the yin and partner yoga. Food was delicious and light- lots of fruit and vegetables. Thanks from Ele

"Kent - June 2019"

My sister and I found the whole event flawless...the warm welcome, delicious food, beautiful spaces including bedroom & communal areas. We loved the homely feel created by the lighting, plants, wood burner and the AGA. The hot tub and neighbouring sheep were an added bonus. We appreciated the thoughtful balance of the yoga sessions, massage, nutrition workshop & free time to ‘just be’. We enjoyed a pleasant walk into the town centre and had time to explore the local museum (Maison Dieu). We found Amber and Kayleigh so engaging and accommodating and came away feeling fully refreshed.

"Faversham Yoga Retreat Review "

From the second we arrived we were welcomed warmly and introduced to the others. We were shown around and clear instructions were given on the format of the first evening.

The soft nature of Amber, the excellent food and the yoga was amazing. It didn't matter that I wasn't very good as instructions were given and all levels were catered for.

"Perfect retreat to de-stress & recharge "

This retreat was all & more than I ever expected. I’m not a vegetarian however the food was some of the best I’ve evet eaten. The host, Amber, was one of the kindest,calmest people I’ve ever met & the variety of yoga was great. The group for me, was perfect as we were just ladies & I felt so relaxed & easily bonded. The retreat itself is set in fields so could go for a walk or just sit & read in your spare time. The itinerary was set out perfectly & if there is a massage available definitely take one, it was very good. I wouldnt hesitate in booking again.

The yoga and meditation sessions were great - whether calming, invigorating or a bit challenging - the yoga teacher clearly knows her stuff!

Food was awesome - fresh, healthy & very tasty.

Comfortable, clean accommodation in a beautiful, serene location.

"Incredibly needed "

I loved all of it. Amber was such a beautiful person to begin with and her yoga style was great. The food made by Kaylee (sorry if I've spelt it wrong) was incredible, I have already given some recipes a go and loving them! The house was stunning and felt like home instantly

This retreat has set the standards for the ones to follow but I will be going back with Amber <3

Thank you for the time you gave us and the space for being able to let go :)

"A tranquil and restoring weekend away at Syndale Lodge."

I loved the accommodation. Everything was thought and planned out meticulously for the comfort and satisfaction of every guest. The attention to detail was amazing , from the organic, freshly made food to the teas, massage therapy and must importantly the yoga sessions. The yoga sessions consisted of a good balance of training for beginners to more intermediate yoga for the more experienced. The availability of homemade solution to clean the matts after each session just showed the care and effort put into this retreat. A big thank you to Amber and Kayley for their amazing effort and planning.

"Just what I needed.....Perfect!"

The weekend was the perfect mix of a variety of yoga, meditation, group activities and me time. The house is beautiful with various places to relax including a hot tub with stunning views. Amber is a great teacher making you feel at ease and relaxed, yet refreshed and empowered. She is extremely knowledgable. Kayleigh's food is so tasty and her patience with all the questions I asked was great. It has defiantly made me change my cooking habits. Just perfect thank you.

"Beautiful house with beautiful people"

The lodge is beautiful and all activities are geared towards calm and nourishment of the body and mind. Group activities are encouraged but never forced and there was ample opportunity for quality "me-time". The yoga instructor and the chef were both so friendly and always happy to chat. I had countless questions about health/diet and they were great with their advice and support!

What an amazing weekend! Fantastic location, with a stunning sun porch and views of endless sheep-strewn fields. Accommodation in a gorgeous house infused with an atmosphere of calm and serenity. Delicious, healthy food prepared by a professional vegan chef. Fun yoga and meditation classes suitable for all levels, especially enjoyable open air activities. A deep tissue massage out of this world, the best I’ve ever had. Friendly, welcoming, relaxing atmosphere, quality time spent in the company of like-minded people. Thank you Amber and Kayley for making us all feel truly welcome and well-looked after, for creating this little piece of heaven on Earth.

"The perfect yoga retreat balance"

The pace of the programme. Nothing felt rushed ... we had lots of time to wind down, have long chats with each other, go for a walk, spend time on our own, read a book, have a massage, take our time over meals, as well as feeling we did a good amount of yoga and meditation.

The location, the food, the yoga, the meditation and the company were just perfect. Amber cultivated a relaxed and open atmosphere and I felt such a familiarity with everyone there. I left feeling very calm and peaceful, which lasted for days, and I've learnt things about myself, about yoga, mediation and vegan food, which will last even longer!

The weekend retreat was great, food was delicious, really nice people all round and varied yoga & meditation sessions.

"Beautiful birthday treat..."

Amber created a welcoming and nurturing atmosphere which allowed people to come together as a group or to spend quiet time reading and relaxing. She also led the yoga sessions and sound bath and qi gong. I particularly enjoyed the sound healing and qi gong, both of which were new to me. Alison gave me a fantastic treatment combining massage, accupressure and Reiki which left me so relaxed I slept for an hour and a half afterwards, and Rob produced delicious vegan food the whole weekend. The accommodation was fabulous too. Spacious and airy, with a wood burning stove and open fire it was both comfortable and warm.

"A dream experience"

I loved everything about this retreat and learnt so much in such a short time. The food was delicious and I thoroughly enjoyed the raw food class and being able to talk to our amazing chef so openly. Each yoga class was completely different but amazing too and it's clear to see that Amber is a real specialist who adores what she does. She created the most beautiful and calming atmosphere from the moment we walked in the door, where everybody could do and be as they wanted. My mum and I did our morning meditations and yoga sessions in our pyjamas, it was that relaxed! By the end of the retreat I felt like I had found myself again and was completely grounded and inspired. I keep referring back to my positive affirmation that Amber asked us to create and it is changing my life. I will definitely be going to another of her retreats - it was an incredible weekend

"Life changing experience"

Everything about this retreat was amazing, I felt I took something new away with me from each session that I now apply in my daily routine. I felt at ease as soon as I stepped into the house, and this feeling was carried with me throughout the weekend. The house is beautiful, it's in a special place and the atmosphere there is so warm and cozy! The morning meditation outside overlooking the lake was incredible! I am fairly new to yoga, and I felt as though the sessions were perfect for all levels, with the opportunity to push myself when I wanted to, and the reminder to rest when I needed to and to listen to my body. I ended up doing a headstand which is a huge achievement for me! The massage I had was beautiful, and the wild lake swim although very cold was a complete rush, and the experience brought the group closer together! The food was incredible!! I felt completely nourished the entire time, and by the end of the weekend my skin was so soft! I'm putting that down to the morning juice! During my free time I also went on a walk up to the waterfall, a 15 minute drive away, which was beautiful!

I overcame a lot of anxieties, and pushed myself mentally and physically to the limit during this trip, and I feel so much stronger now. I have learnt so much about myself, yoga and healthy food, and I am already adapting this knowledge into my life! Thank you so much:)
