    Review by Richard Williams from Great Britain

    PROS Pros: The location, absolutely beautiful. A great mix of people, and with lack of phone signal and TV, we sat and "spoke" :) Just like it used to be. I really enjoyed the mix of yoga, and learnt a lot of new things. Also learning that vegan food can taste so good.

    Review by Lottie Farrell from United States

    Life changing experience

    CONS Cons: This isn't really a negative as such but when arriving into Pooley Bridge on the bus as suggested in the directions, I found that the taxi driver for the village was on holiday and the nearest rank was Penrith, so a 10 minute journey would have cost me 25 pounds! I ended up getting a lift from a lovely lady in one of the Inns, but I would suggest ringing up the taxi service to make sure that you will be able to get to the house if planning on getting the bus! Otherwise it's best getting a taxi straight from Penrith train station.

    PROS Pros: 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:)

    "I have been searching for the perfect yoga teacher in Hastings for some time now. I am happy to say that I have finally found her! I have been attending Amber's classes for a few weeks now. I love how she fuses together different styles of yoga, including hatha, iyengar and ashtanga, to create her own unique style of teaching. Amber is an engaging, passionate and mindful yoga teacher. She is very attentive to everyone in her class and ensures that they work to their maximum capabilities. She creates a beautiful relaxing atmosphere, with the use of candles, incense, chanting, tibetan singing bowls, bells, meditation and deep breathing exercises. Her instructions are flowing, soothing and calm. I leave each class on cloud 9, feeling amazing - relaxed, fully stretched and opened out and I can't wait to return the following week."

    "I just want to let people know how much of a B-E-A-UTIFUL weekend I had at the 'Awakening Spring Yoga Retreat' in the Lake District."

    ""

    "I had a completely serene experience the whole time. Set in the most breathtaking landscapes, our home was an old stone farmhouse which is found through a gap in a hedge and across a bridge over mini waterfalls! "

    ""

    "Whilst in our little hideaway not a single bother from the outside world was allowed to penetrate the bliss we felt... I have never slept so well."

    ""

    "Through the early morning Qigong classes with Ivan I learnt a lot about myself and about the powers I hold within. I learnt how harnessing the earth's energy can put you in touch with yourself and everything beyond yourself which feels absolutely amazing. "

    ""

    "I really enjoyed the yoga classes which were set in the most perfect atmosphere. Even as a beginner in yoga I had no trouble learning under the teaching of the tranquil Amber, as she addressed us softly, gently and fluently, guiding us through each movement. The evening yoga mediation sessions were so peaceful that some of my fellow retreaters fell asleep during the class."

    ""

    "I also very much enjoyed learning about natural, healthy nutrition in the raw food workshops, aswel as having fun whilst we made yummy snacks. By the end of the weekend I felt quite bonded to everyone in the group despite us having been strangers..."

    ""

    "What I have gained from this experience cannot be measured, nor can the love I felt from Amber and Ivan in sharing their enlightening way of life! I've definitely grown closer to my own true self and have excelled on my spiritual journey. I can't recommend their retreats enough and will definitely be attending again! I hope to see you there! Peace and Love To All"

    "I spent the most amazing week at Amber's yoga retreat in Menorca. Everything from the location and the food, to the activities and the company were absolutely perfect. We had wonderful daily Qi Gong sessions with Ivan on a beautiful cliff edge followed by great yoga lessons from Amber where I learned so much in just a week. The healthy, fresh and homemade breakfast and dinners were some of the best food I've eaten and were always served with such enthusiasm and a description of how it was made and where the delicious ingredients came from, which made each meal that much more enjoyable! Amber & Ivan also took us to see some gorgeous places where we explored caves and did yoga on the beach. Truly a fantastic experience and I left happy, relaxed, refreshed and very inspired. Thank you both! "

    "Amber's teaching has completely transformed my yoga practice for the better. In class, she clearly and intelligently directs my awareness so that I now appreciate the purpose of each asana and have a stronger connection with my body and the movement of energy through it. Amber encourages us to be curious and explores different postures. The classes are intense, the work goes deep and stays in the body long after the class is over! I highly recommend her class."

    "I had never been on any kind of retreat before, although I had read some reviews from last year's Menorca retreat. The photos were enticing enough."

    "So I booked myself and one other on the retreat, not knowing who was even going to come with me, my partner Nick, who had never done yoga, or my 19-year-old son Milo who had a bit of time on his hands. In the end, it was me and Milo. I took him to a few yoga classes in Sevenoaks to give him a taste..he loved it."

    "So, we arrived quite late on the first night..and settled into our accommodation. "

    "The next morning the sessions began. First warming up with Ivan, then yoga with Amber. Most of us had done a bit of yoga before and Amber seemed to intuitively know how far each of us could go, she eased us all gently into poses, stretched us physically and mentally building our stamina daily opening our minds and our hearts."

    "I think we all gained so much from the experience. I particularly loved the fresh air, the breathing and chanting, the mindfulness walks, I felt so relaxed I was inspired to stop smoking. Having been an on and off smoker for 13 years, I thought it would be difficult, two weeks later and I still have not had a cigarette. I feel younger and more invigorated than ever and I seem to have much more energy all round. We have continued to attend our yoga class here. We can do a lot more than we could before. There is so much truth in the saying "use it or lose it" and also "it is never too late"."

    "Thank you, Amber and Ivan, you have given me a new lease of life and Milo some inspiration for his future, even if it is just to become a pirate and live in a cave. Namaste."

    "I just returned from a week's retreat in Menorca with Amber and Ivan. What a wonderful life changing experience. Beautiful weather, food, location and most importantly people. The island is stunning and you have plenty of free time to explore the lovely walks and beaches. Starting our day with Qigong on the cliff with the sun on your face is a memory that will stay with me for a long time, and Amber's yoga classes are the best I have been to. We managed all our classes outdoors and even watched the moon on the rooftop on the last evening. I have come home feeling so much more at peace with the world and life. Thank you for the experience I will definitely be back. "

    "I had been at a wonderful yoga retreat in Grasmere where Amber was assisting the yoga classes and taught the meditation and relaxation sessions and also offering massage treatments. Both were fantastic. With the massage, I chose the deep tissue and under focused breathing (a few groans while those tense bits were vigorously worked on) I felt so good after (and later the same day when I went walking / fell running)."

    "I can say with all certainty that Amber delivered the best, most thorough massage I have ever had in my life. And I have had quite a few in my running career! Amber, you're bloody brill!"

    "Amber is a brilliant teacher. The atmosphere she creates is so relaxing. I always leave her classes feeling rejuvenated, completely relaxed, and with a calm, peaceful mind. Also she really helps you to work to your full potential with every pose so you get a thorough deep stretch. I suffer with lower back pain and tension in my neck and shoulders and a general state of stress - I realise this because of how calm I feel after her classes! And it's so relieving to stretch out all my tense areas. I can't recommend her enough."

    "A truly enlightening experience made all the more special by the personal care and attention is shown by our exceptional hosts, Amber and Ivan. We began our days with Qigong explained and led so eloquently by Ivan. Once we were 'warmed up', energised and full of positive chi Amber would then follow on with yoga practice. With her wealth of experience she is able to guide each participant to reach their full potential and we all noticeably improved during the course of the week. The reward for our efforts was to then sit down together and enjoy a superb healthy and nutritious breakfast. This really set us up for the day during which we could take guided mindfulness walks in pretty countryside often with sea views, or 'do our own thing' until sunset yoga. Weather permitting this would take place poolside or on the roof terrace, sometimes with chanting and meditation. The next treat would be the wholesome tasty suppers created by Ivan and enjoyed by all."

    "Amber and Ivan have carefully considered the content, location, and ambiance of their retreat which represents excellent value and the vital opportunity to explore oneself. Thanks, Amber and Ivan for a truly positive experience."

    "I really enjoyed Amber's yoga classes while at the Dominican Tree House Village in Samana, this past week. I enjoyed starting and ending every class with meditation. She could sense the vibe of the group, and tailored each class to her students. I appreciate any teacher who adjusts, but Amber adjusts a persons body to their greatest depth and potential. I hope to participate in a yoga retreat with her in the future. Thank you for everything, Amber!"

    "Finally found the time to share with you all what a wonderful yoga retreat I had in Menorca, Spain in November. Amber provided us all with a well balanced week of yoga and nutrition in a beautiful Vila. We started every day with Qi gong and yoga after sun rise revealing the beautiful surroundings before providing us with a delicious healthy breakfast and the most amazing juices I would never have dreamed of to set us up for the well thought out mindfulness walks through stunning scenery. After treating us to delightfully delicious vegetarian lunches we had afternoons to spend at the local beach or walk to secluded coves for snorkelling or reading before returning for our evening yoga. Ivan's exquisite evening meals were always a delight on the pallet and Ambers evening meditation relaxed us for a good nights sleep. It was a well thought out week, a wonderfully funny bunch of people who I miss and I sincerely did not want to leave, but I came away with renewed vigour and dietary intentions. Thank you Amber and Ivan. Peace and love."

    "I've been attending Amber's yoga classes regulary over the last few months. Amber's clear commitment to yoga, not only as a holistic practice, but as a way of life is deeply inspiring. She welcomes questions and is keen to inspire others to experience the many benefits that a regular yoga practice offers. I enjoy the balance she offers between meditative and physical practices in the company of kindred spirits."
