    Review by Elise Gozin from Belgium

    Thos retreat was a kickstart to my own practices

    PROS Pros: The passion, care and knowledge of Alexander and Serieke touched me. The yang yoga in the morning, the yin in the evening and the meditation, together with the theory discussions, really made an impact on me, my practice and my personal journey. Combine that with the stunning surroundings made this retreat absolutely worthwile!

  • Review by Gabriel Hofer from Poland
    8 out of 10

    "I'm glad I decided to join this short retreat during the holidays. It helped me train my body and soul, as well as regenerate and relax after a year of hard work. The yoga classes were great, the food was nourishing and the environment - beautiful. The theoretical lessons, however, were way too complicated to understand for a novice and the meditation sessions also were tough for a beginner (thankfully I have practiced before, but it was difficult nonetheless). Anyway, all the other parts of the retreat more than make up for those problems and I am very happy to have traveled such a long distance to meet all these cool people. Thank you, Alexander and Serieke, and I wish you all the best in the present and in the future!"

    "For those who are looking for a yoga retreat in Europe, I would highly recommend this place. Both instructors are very efficient, nice and cool people. Their instructions in yoga and meditation are very clear and easy to follow. Moreover, I found that the property is one of the best places to learn yoga and meditation. In the midst of serene nature, it's ideal for those who want to spend a quiet time with themselves or with good company."

    "The retreat was absolutely amazing! Serieke and Alexander are true Ashtanga/yoga ambassadors and have a fantastic and very wide knowledge. Both are so positive and calming at the same time. These five days in Spain really made a huge positive impacted in my life. We had morning Ashtanga classes, followed by very interesting led and presented workshops, then lunch with free time, yoga again, dinner and ending with a nice meditation. Preparing the food together really made us participants become a little family within this one week we spend there. I truly want to thank both of them for making my stay unique and unforgettable."

    "The intensive Yoga and Vipassana Retreat, led by Serieke and Alexander was outstanding. The daily yoga, ashtanga in the morning and hatha in the evenings was just what I needed. Taking time to slow down and meditate each day brought more benefits to the practices of the retreat. Sharing wholesome yummy food and conversation with the others - all very nice people - made it a memorable week. I'd sign up for another retreat with them in the future."

  • Review by Cynthia from Stockholm, Sweden

    "This retreat was balm for my soul and besides that, I learned a lot about myself. Yoga Retreat Spain provides a place for inspiration, creativity and self-reflection that means and will mean a lot for everybody attending this retreat since there is not much time and space left for these things in all-day life anymore. With them I had the long desired - and so far missed - time to explore my state of mind, my intentions for life and to collect myself again. What they do for people with that retreat is something incredibly meaningful and I really aspire to share these experiences I had here with many people by also being a yoga teacher one day. You live my dream! :)"

  • Review by Jennifer from London, United Kingdom

    "This is the third time I have been on this yoga and meditation week. I have felt the time immensely relaxing and peaceful as well as giving me space to think. The workshops were very informative and interesting. I especially enjoyed the noble silence periods as it gave me time to reflect. I feel I will do the retreat again in the future as it has a real benefit on me and how I look at my life."

    "What a week! The yoga lessons were an absolutely delightful experience, every day. I am truly inspired to continue with my practice. The theory classes were so interesting, on a down to earth, fundamental level; impossible not to understand the logic behind the ideas and practices. "

    "I am so glad that I got to meet you during my first yoga retreat. You have a really warm home and that is because of your very warm and welcoming souls. In many ways you have inspired me this week - both by learning from you during classes but mostly from your beings. I return home with a very special bag full of calmness, new wisdom - but mostly love. Thank you!"

    "I am so thankful for everything I experienced during this week. Doing yoga for the first time, so intense, really opened my eyes. It inspired me: the calmness, the spiritual aspects, the breathing exercises, the bandha's. Wow! Finally something where I can really move on with. Thank you for your wisdom and energy!"

  • Review by Andrew from United Kingdom

    "Wow! What a beautiful place and what beautiful people you are! You handle it all with love. So much care and beautiful innocence within which lies true wisdom. I loved the approach to food - make your own breakfast, the organic stuff. Just a lovely balance of activities and free time. I did not anticipate that the theory sessions would be so significant, but they brought everything together. Lovely collective wisdom and a time for us all to be together. I hope to be back for more."

  • Review by Katherine from Scotland

    "Thank you. I really felt at home here. You have created a very safe place here. Thank you for reminding me of a lot of truths that have got lost a bit. You have helped me develop my awareness and focus. I think one of the most effective examples you give is your own experience and your genuine excitement, it's very inspiring."
