"An amazing retreat that helped to heal my mind, body & soul"

The programme had a wide variety of practices from Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin yoga. I liked that there was a combination of hikes and massages that you could do during the day and some chill time by the pool or the meditation garden. The teachers were brilliant and taught me a lot about yoga and my personal practice to consider. The food was incredible, you were provided tasty and nutritional vegan food which helped to detox and nourish the body whilst completing a well thought out programme. I will definitely go back to the retreat, thank you for an amazing and enlightened week. Namaste.

"Heavenly yoga retreat"

Everything was perfect. An amazingly serene and calming place. The hammocks in the meditation garden for clarity of mind. The pool and the library. The vegan food and not least the people.

"An unforgettable experience "

The moment I arrived to this retreat the energy and feeling of home was great . As the retreat went on I came to realise that it wasn’t just a retreat it’s a community of love and inspiration that leaves you with the feeling of love for your self and an open heart to others .

"Fab-exceeded my expectations!"

Every part of this yoga retreat exceeded my expectations! The food, the instructors, the facilities, and the company!

I think a major factor that contributed to the success of the break was that the group gelled very well with each other, even though we were all from different countries.

This retreat is not just about yoga! The hikes were so serene and peaceful and I learned a lot about my mind and body.

I would recommend to anyone!

"My first experience at a Yoga Retreat"

I spent a great deal of time searching the internet for a retreat that was like a community and away from the hustle and bustle of life! I also wanted a mix of meditation and yoga. I found this at Sutra Shala. The staff, who were mostly volunteers were excellent instructors. The centre is run by Namit, who has created a model for yoga retreats which would be difficult to improve on. The entire experience was magical. It was a life-changing experience. The environment was perfect, with comfortable rooms, outdoor areas, a meditation garden, and a lovely warm pool. The setting in the hills was special. I would highly recommend Sutra Shala for 'resetting' your life.

"Couldn't have been better"

I liked everything about this experience... Instructors were excellent, food (vegan, but I am vegan) was good. Accommodation very comfortable, A/C plus fan in room, clean, cosy, well thought out. A very varied program, and free extra tuition if requested.

"Heavenly yoga retreat! Exceeded all possible expectations. "

I can't praise this place enough. My husband and I wanted to have a break from our careers, get away from busy live we have in Barcelona, explore deeper meditation. The yoga Sutra Shala experience is a full emersion into a holistic lifestyle.

Everyday was beautifully planned wth balance of classes, hikes, workshops abd self time.

We had a chance to book private classes with teachers in our free time (that's included in price). That was so helpful,you could ask a teacher about anything and get close personal atention and advice. All teachers were so passionate, so attentive and caring. We learned and improved so much.

The food. THE FOOD! Oh my it needs absolute special notice. Superb vegan meals 3 times a day plus snacks. All produce is from local organic farms. 0 km attitude. The whole group was beaming about the food! The only problem is return to real life after such heavenly food 😂

Great accommodation. The house has a wonderful pool with the view on the mountains.

Worth every bit of penny. We wanted to stay for the 2d week. And we will return. This experience is unforgettable.

"The perfect retreat"

Everything at Yoga Sutra Shala is done with love and compassion; from the classes, the food, the gardens and rooms. A sense of calm and tranquility fills your soul as soon as you step through the door.

"Peace and quiet in the mountains"

If you're looking for a place to rest and explore mindfulness this retreat is perfect for you. The vegan food is awesome, the rooms are very nice and pretty, it's quiet and within a beautiful area, they have a big garden and a nice pool area. I enjoyed the many different meditations, walks and yoga classes on the programm, but it is really the teachers and the volunteers that make this retreat such a great experience. They all worked hard to create a warm and overall healthy environment for us to further our practice and explore new aspects of yoga and meditation.

"A most lovely retreat"

This retreat was amazing, with a lovely staff, teachers and group of people. All with such kind and generous hearts, it was a privilege meeting and getting to know them. The three times a day vegan meals were all super tasty, with a lot of variety, many thanks to the chefs and the helpers. The yoga was great as well, with a balanced program of different styles, and a lovely kirtan session as well. We had a tour of the city, plus 2 amazing hikes in the mountains that everyone loved. The surrounding and location has some breathtaking views. Thank you !


from Netherlands, January 2019

"Amazing experience!!!"

I didn’t really know what to expect besides taking daily yoga classes, but it turned out to be one of the most memorable experiences of my life! The beautiful valley that is host to some fantastic hikes, the super nutritious and delicious plant based food, the kind and loving staff... I will go back next year. Also it’s value for money is excellent, there were so many things to do and explore such as workshops and classes in ayurveda and anatomy.

"Rejuvenated & Empowered"

This retreat had a lively international vibe. Not only were the guests from various parts of Europe but the staff and volunteers were from various parts of the globe including NZ and Puerto Rico. It was great to have a mix of teachers, each with their unique style and wisdom. The attention to alignment was superb as there was usually at least one other yoga teacher assisting the main teacher. We were constantly reminded to mention if we had any pinching or pain in the asanas and, one point, when I mentioned a pinch in my lower back, within seconds I had two instructors, adjusting my posture and with judicious placement of a brick, they brought instant ease and space into my spine. I learned a great deal about activating the correct muscles and easing into asanas. My hips have certainly become more open.

I appreciated the opportunity to try different approaches to meditation and loved the walking meditation.

The food was delicious, inspiring and nutritious. The walks in the hills were delightful: stunning scenery and tranquil surroundings. On the one morning, when it rained heavily, many guests made use of the materials in the art corner, others were happy just to read the many books from the shelves. I particularly enjoyed discovering Thich Nhat Hanh.

The building was cozy and comfy. Great crowd of people and a lot of laughter.

I learned a lot and I hope to hold onto that zen for as long as possible and apply it in my daily life. Many thanks to you all, Caroline 🙏🏻

"You have to visit this place..."

Everything form the arrival to the stunning house, to the welcome from the instructors and the staff to the yoga to the amazing food was excellent. This is a truly magical place run by people who love and alive this lifestyle. You can't help but relax and switch off here, ti is a real break form the world thats we should all be taking on a regular basis. I will defiantly be going back.

"A wonderful experience"

Everything about this retreat was amazing, from the instructors to the volunteers, the lovely food and the beautiful surroundings, this retreat was everything it promised to be and then some. I can't believe how accommodating all the team were, particularly the volunteers who went out of their way to make sure I had everything I needed. This retreat also ticked all the boxes in terms of the spiritual content, wonderful yoga and stunning meditations. So, it's a massive thank you from me.

"Fabulous holiday to recharge"

There is nothing to not like about this holiday. The house and rooms are beautiful and so clean. The vegetarian food is incredible and so filling. The yoga sessions every morning and evening were challenging and I learned lots of new things. I loved the two hikes we did and I would love to go back in Spring so that I could do more walking. It is so relaxing to sit by the pool and look at the views.

"A peaceful week where time stops "

I had an amazing week in this beautiful shala. Namit and Joe's teaching isn't like anything I have ever experienced before. They listen to everyone's personal development needs and take you through a journey to unwind, learn more about yourself and about yoga and meditation. Namit is very knowledgeable both of the tradition of yoga and the science behind it. He kindly shared all of this precious knowledge with us and really helped us take our practice to the next level.

The food was amazing, very well balanced and varied throughout the week.

The very friendly team of volunteers made sure that we always had everything we needed.

Would recommend this place to anyone who is looking to unwind and bring more serenety to their life through yoga, meditation and a balanced nutrition

"A class act"

Clearly, a great deal of thought and experience are behind Yoga Sutra Shala. Everything is of a top notch standard and run efficiently - but with a light hand. The calibre of teaching is high (Joe was my teacher and he's not listed in the above categories) as is the calibre of the happy volunteers. Such good energy and smart organization starts at the top - with Namit. The tone he sets makes for an uplifting physical, spiritual and emotional experience supported by great vegetarian food and dynamic, informative q&a sessions.

"A little piece of paradise!"

I am worried that in writing a review I won’t be able to do the retreat justice! Words can not describe how beneficial an experience this was for me. The gorgeous building and surrounding area alone were enough to instill a level of calm I haven’t felt in a long time. Coupled with the amazing yoga classes, meditation garden and workshops, I left feeling like a new person. Not to forget the amazing, healthy food that was on offer, that has changed the way I will eat forever. Thanks to Namit, Amy and Pippa for all the amazing classes and of course, to all the volunteers who helped provide us with everything needed to make the most of our stay. I learned so much during my time here that I will take with me on the rest of my journey! Thanks so much to you all. 🙏

Alles! De lessen, het zwembadje groep, gevarieerde leeftijden en landen van afkomst, de bergwandelingen, de leraren.

Dorien Bernard

"A pleasurable balance between relaxation and activity"

Because of their experienced background, the instructors were very professional, patient and personally involved. I really appreciated the fact that they took time for individual adjustments during the classes and that private sessions were offered to focus on/deepen into specific (personal) difficulties. Also, they were very open, relaxed and non-judgemental.

Anja Vermolen

"Fantastische belevenis"

Super aardige instructeurs en zeer behulpzaam.

Enorm veelzijdig met veel workshops die je vrijwillig kan bijwonen.

Mooie vogelrijke omgeving, heerlijk wandelen en afsluiten met een duik in t lekkere zwembad.

Ben zelf geen veganist, maar heb heerlijk gegeten.

Dank jullie allemaal voor een fantastisch verblijf. 😊

"Interesting yoga retreat"

The place and the facilities for the retreat are very nice. I felt that the people who work during yoga retreat work with love to make a special retreat. For me the best clases were with Clara for many reasons. The connection with the group was really special and beautiful. Each one respecting the space of the others but really connected.

Some of the meditations with Lu were very interesting and very nice.

"Ultimate me time"

Everything was amazing. The food (although I am not a vegetarian, I didn’t miss for a second my chicken or eggs:-)), the people who worked for the retreat, the location, the yoga classes, the meditation. It is ultimate me time in a wonderful homey place.

"A wonderful place to come back to and re-unwind"

The atmosphere, food, lessons, people attending during my week and staff! Very nice, helpfull, professional and great schedule. Really was a splendid way to come to rest during the day and unwind. The location is great as well. Quiet and no distraction at daytime ... simply loved it! And we had a lot of fun as a group. So nice to meet so many people that tick the same :-)! Felt like home or even better!

Los retiros en Yoga Sutra Shala son realmente una experiencia inolvidable.

He aprendido muchísimas cosas sobre yoga, meditación, nutrición y filosofía. Todo eso rodeado de una naturaleza increíble, la casa y las habitaciones son preciosas, los grupos pequeños y la comida increíblemente rica y equilibrada (todo vegetariano y ecológico).

¡¡Me quería quedar allí para siempre!!

"Quality yoga and an inspirational holiday to remember"

The location, was stunning and inspiring. The hike into the mountains was wonderous and visits to the local village provided a welcome chance to walk and talk as a group.

The quality of the yoga classes was very good, always adjusted to the needs of the group and individuals. The structure of days was well balanced with quiet times, meditation practice also.

The vegan food absolutely delicious

At the shala the staff very friendly and caring; genuinely interested in your wellbeing, taking time to share from the heart...inspirational

"Simply thankful that i did this"

The teachers, the location, the food and basically everything was just great. What really happens there though is something more than these things and it can't really be put into words. I sincerely recommend gokng to the shala :)

Natalie Creevy

"Lovely peaceful retreat in the mountains"

Everything was lovely.

All the teachers were so kind and knowledgeable and the range of yoga on offer was lovely. There were plenty of new things to try but still many classes with conscientious roots in more traditional styles.

I loved that there were sunrise hikes.

The food is beyond compare. Truly delicious dishes every single mealtime, including breakfast. Those preparing the food are clearly very passionate about what they do.

I had a lovely time, thank you so much.

"Life changing experience, would 100% recommend"

The people, the instructors, the location, the food and the vibes. It was all totally spectacular and I would highly recommend. I really improved my yoga and the alignment classes really helped. I had quite a spiritual experience in the middle of the valley and it helped me sort through some issues I am experiencing at the moment. The programme really helps you open up and listen to yourself and find clarity of what you need and want in life. I really enjoyed the food, as it was spectacular and delicious and I really enjoyed when we shared meals together and the conversations that we had. I have been to retreats in Asia and Australia previously and I would rate this as being one of the best. Simply superb, it has a winning formula. Loved it.

Agusta Gizurardottir

"Beautiful, humbling experience in perfect surroundings"

The retreat was absolutely stunning; beautifully tranquil, set within the valley surrounded by the mountains. I had a lovely rustic room with excellent views and the mediation garden was divine. The food was faultless, every meal was absolutely delicious with innovative recipes and the most nutritious ingredients. I particularly loved the workshop paying special attention to alignment and pose postures with Namit and the emotional mediation in the evening with Stephanie. Then of course the beautiful hikes made even better with mediation/singing mantras on the mountain top. Everyone was so lovely and I felt so rested and grateful by the end of the week, if only I could have stayed for longer!

Angela Sharma

from Great Britain, April 2019

This was my first time at a yoga retreat, and I could not recommend Yoga Sutra Shala enough. The serene mountain setting is a dream. It was just the perfect week, filling my soul with peace and calm.

The retreat itself is organised and executed excellently by a team of amazing people. Each person working at the retreat helped cultivate a great energy; they were kind, open and happy to share all their knowledge and experience.

The yoga classes themselves were fantastic and the progression through the week was great. It was so lovely to learn from a range of teachers (Alison, Josie, Namit, Stephanie and Marlene), each bringing their own wonderful personalities and approaches with them.

In addition, there were some really interesting workshops organised by Marie, Marlene and Cathy which were so informative and interesting. I loved them!

Even further, the vegan food prepared by Fernanda, Jenni and Alice was incredible! My belly was always full because I couldn’t help but have seconds every time. It was delicious!

Thank you everyone at Yoga Sutra Shala for a marvellous week. It is definitely an experience I will hold in my memories for a very long time. I’ve never felt so content and peaceful.

"Amazing Yogic Experience in a Beautiful Location"

From the airport arrival to the departure day, everything was extremely well organised with clear instructions. But more than a well organised retreat, it was the people that made it special.

We were welcomed with big open arms by yoga teachers Cathi and Allison, and from that moment on I knew we were in good hands. The teachers, volunteers, chefs set the tone for the whole week. The location of the center is extremely peaceful, quiet, rejuvenating with so many places to relax (cosy by the fire and library, the meditation garden, the courtyard or the pool area).

I was impressed how every detail was thought of - from the chalk board signs with daily quotes, to the hikes, the classes, the massages offered..

The diversity of activities offered was great and also the freedom to join or take some time for yourself was very well received. The diversity in teachings was also great - Thank you Marlene (so calming and a wonderful listener), Allison (so free and positive), Cathi (gorgeous voice and smile - and great organisation), Josie (always a lively smile and full of energy), Stephanie (calming, soothing and exact) and Namit (well of knowledge and eyes everywhere!) for your classes. Thank you Marie for the workshops - great addition!

The meals were outstanding - Fernanda, Alice and Jeni did a fabulous job in keeping us healthy and also curious to what was going to be served at the next meal. Always went for refills ;)

This is definitely a center where I will come back :)

"Great place to re-charge and re-connect with your values "

I was looking for a short escape from daily routine and based my choice of Yoga Sutra Shala purely on intuition and could not be happier.

The location is fanatic with a great view on the mountain. Plenty of options for walking in the nature or relax in the garden.

Food is delicious and healthy. This is a place where I was able to fully recharge for a week and improve my yoga and meditation practice.

The retreat was more than I could have hoped for. Such welcoming place with a lovely staff and the people I met.

Everything about Yoga Sutra Shala was amazing and far exceeded my expectations.teaching was great- mostly restorative and relaxing which is good for a retreat. The food was absolutely delicious...some of the best dishes I’ve ever tasted, made with love. The house is felt like a home from home. I had time to make, read and write and there were treks and workshops organised so all in all, an enriching experience. I would love to return in the warmer weather. Thank you to everyone who made this retreat so special. The care and thought that goes into each day is felt and appreciated.

from Great Britain, December 2018

"Escape the pre-Xmas mayhem"

The whole week was better than I expected it to be. All range of fitness levels & yoga abilities well catered for, with really clear instruction from the yoga teachers. Yoga classes had humour as well as seriousness involved.

Loads of tasty vegan food always available.

Super friendly staff around the retreat to make you feel at home.

Good range of workshops to attend if you wanted to, or just sit and relax.

Transfer plans changed last minute, but we were regularly kept up to date.

"A wonderful escape from modern life"

The retreat is in a beautiful valley surrounded by orange, almond and olive trees, which puts you in peaceful mindset straight away. The people at the retreat were very welcoming and accommodating and made you feel at ease. The yoga classes were taught to a high standard and I learned lots of new things to incorporate into my practice. The food was delicious and gave me inspiration to try more plant based recipes. The other people at the retreat I was on were a great bunch from across Europe, and it was interesting to learn about their backgrounds and experiences.

Sandra Strole

from Latvia, November 2018

"body and mind rejuvenation in a beautiful valley "

Imagine an old, Spanish fairytale house hidden in a small village in the most beautiful valley with almond and orange trees, lavender, timing, bird’s songs... it's the retreat place. Various organic food (nuts, seeds, grains, fruit, vegetables, herbal tea) you will get just can't beat any of the experiences before. I ate a lot but still lost some weight which was a very pleasant surprise :)

But above all - the beautiful human souls living, teaching and working at this retreat place. Namit as spiritual leader and simply passionate about yoga postures and how to teach everyone of us and lead into peaceful meditation and awareness. Focused and calm yoga instructor Robby whose yoga lessons gave a lot of peace, self-acceptance and love. Positive and vital Lieke and Gemma who made everyone feel welcome, taken care off and understood. And fantastic Gabriela who shared so much of her wise and warm heart with us by giving energizing yoga lesson, creative exercises and deep-soul meditation. Much of love to you!

I arrived to the retreat being half-ill, tired and worried but after these days felt like newborn. Maybe it was the coincidence of being together with so many positive people who wished to learn yoga and wisdom behind it, maybe the place, food, etc. It was poor magic there and only wished to stay longer. Will keep this beautiful week in my heart and especially in the moments when life seems tough. Lots of love to you all.

"peace & space ---food for the soul"

Yoga Sutra Shala.....was the best yoga experience I'v had

The building with the nooks and crannies - and respect for the era in which it was built was noticable

Once you stepped in the front door......goodness met you and stayed with you for the 5 days

It was so wonderful to be under instruction with instructors who had deep sense of humanity, compassion and kindness

Eva and myself will return

The food was so amazing......beautifully presented and amply supply

My only criticism was the mosquitos.....they loved to bite....but natural paste to ease the string was made up using lemon and garlic....and it helped greatly

Arlene Riley

"The whole experience was very professional and life changing"

The location was beautiful but just a bonus to a great experience. Yoga, meditation and chanting everyday taught me some really important life changes. The food was very tasteful and healthy. It was all heart felt.

"A little piece of heaven"

Really didn't want to leave the happy, peaceful, beautiful bubble that is Yoga Sutra Shala! Learned so much about yoga, meditation and stillness, and myself, nourished by the most wonderful vegan food, surrounded by beautiful countryside, and supported by knowledgeable, interesting, warm, loving and inspiring people. This retreat was an incredible experience I want to repeat again and again! So much food for mind body and soul! All aspects of the retreat combined to create an experience so much bigger than the sum of its parts. Thank you to all.

"Surpassed Expectations"

This is a very special place. A nurturing environment where the visitor comes first. The website doesn't do Yoga Sutra Shala justice - but this reflects the ambience of the place. Understated, reflective, peaceful.

"What I loved about the Retreat"

The yoga retreat was everything I expected and more! The attention to detail in our schedule every day was outstanding. The food was so lovely we all wanted to bring Fernandes the Chef home with us! Namit and the Volunteers all made us feel so welcome. I would highly recommend the Yoga Sutra Shala Retreat. We all deserve to take some time our for ourselves. It is liberating!

Zoe Garton

from Great Britain, September 2018

"Utter severity at the most beautiful retreat!"

I couldn't recommend this retreat any more. I left feeling like a new person - the entire experience creates a calm, serene and meditative state of mind you will leave feeling like you're floating on clouds!

Facilities - the house is 800 years old and it is stunning. The rooms are really cute, cosy and amenities such as shampoo, shower gel and towels are left in the room for you. The pool comes with pool towels and there is plenty of space to sit and chill during the day.

Volunteers - the ladies who helped run Shala Retreat are incredible. They are so helpful, kind and relaxed and make your experience even more serene.

Food - the food is incredibly tasty. It is plant based and you will get to try new ingredients and come away inspired with lots of recipes. Every day there's something different for breakfast, lunch and dinner, including a tasty dessert! There's always fresh fruit on offer and a great variety of teas... some of the best food I've ever had.

Yoga - the classes are divided into two, a beginners and advanced. It means the classes are small which is fantastic to improve alignment as you get a lot of air time from the teacher (thank you Namit)

Meditation - as a new-be to meditation each day provided a slight variant so you can leave with lots of new techniques and come away with a style that works for you!

I recommend this retreat for everyone and can't wait to return one day!! x

"good atmosphere"

they pay attention to every small item. A warm welcome at the busstop, clean rooms with on the bed towels, water bottle and a chocolate bar, the lovely garden, all the rooms and places were pretty decorated, a new quote on the black bord every day, food was really excellent, there are snacks during the whole day just like tea and coffee, a warm say goodbye.

"A life changing yoga retreat"

This gem of a yoga retreat couldn't have been any better. It's difficult to put in words all the positive aspects. Perfect mix of yoga, meditation and free time --> not too much, but still intensive and rich. No activity is mandatory: no blame for skipping a lesson, everyone goes at their own pace. Healthy, fresh, wholesome and delicious food --> lots of creative recipes. Stunning scenery and tranquil location. Cosy and welcoming rooms, I immediately felt home. A genuinely warm, dedicated and kind-hearted staff (volunteers included!), creating a sense of belonging. Namit, the beautiful soul behind every aspect of this retreat. He is an inspiring yoga teacher with incredible knowledge about health and nutrition from both a scientific and a "yogi" point of view --> certainly an uncommon mix. The retreat is perfect for couples, families, small groups of friends, and solo travellers; we had a nice mix in our group and it was an added value. I was traveling solo and never felt out of place. Silence time after breakfast and before dinner: a beautiful habit that I will try to implement in my daily life. A beautiful pool, hammocks in the garden...lovely! Perfect also for complete beginners.

"Yoga retreat"

The place was beautiful, fabulous setting, great character to the house and accomodation excellent and spotless. The yoga instructions were very beneficial and benefitted my practicw. I loved the meditation and breathing practices. The food was fantastic and the staff were amazing. My best yoga holiday so far

"A quiet haven"

The peace and the attention to detail. Namet created the conditions for our group (who did not know each other) to bond really well but also focus on individual growth. There is a lot of attention to detail, in the yoga, the food, the silence times, the lessons and the general ambience. I was unwell during the retreat, so it didn't quite go as planned, but felt very well cared for.

"Just Fantastic..."

Brilliant place and experience!! Just go if you can! Stunning farmhouse, amazing scenery, gorgeous pool area, the food is beyond expectations and as a vegan it’s fantastic to have an abundance of choice and good nutrition. There is so much more but you will find out if you get there. Above all, the staff really make it; they are all so lovely, fun, supportive and helpful.

"Incredible experience"

I’m a fussy eater, the food was amazing. Nutritious, full of energy and flavour. All the volunteers were lovely, helpful and hard working.

I learnt so much about different yogas, breathing techniques, alternative medicine, meditation and lifestyles. All the guests had their own experiences and shared. A great group of people.

All the instructors were easy to understand and extremely knowledgable. I have come away confident how each yoga pose should feel.

The experience is great for all levels of yoga. As someone that has only gone a couple of lessons I found it really useful.

"Amazing experience"

My teacher was Joe, a young American from California. I cannot speak highly enough of him. He made the learning experience so relaxed and fun and I learned a huge amount about the integrity of poses and the importance of doing things properly.

Nammit and Pippa also made meditation an unbelievable experience. I have been practicing yoga for just less than twelve months and wanted to explore meditation in more depth. I can only say that my experience far exceeded anything I could have expected.

The whole experience at Sutra Shala could not have been better. Staff, food, rooms, location, walks, fellow visitors were all incredible and I would recommend a stay here to anyone remotely interested in yoga.

"Holistic wisdom, wonderful food, empowering mountains"

Thank you teachers and volunteers for putting your heart into the work, for the holistic wisdom with relaxed and happy attitude and the beautiful surrounding. Thank you Namit for the wisdom of aligning and activating the body in the correct way, this made mine and everyone’s yoga experience so much deeper!

The food was perfect. All of us with food limitations were taken care of with wonderful food, and the chef and her food is perfect! I loved that the mornings and evenings were silent; such a calm way of starting the day. <3 The view is soul-nourishing and there are so many places that invited us to relax.

I loved !! that I could hike every day at the mountains, it made me so happy! And that the weather was so beautiful all the time that we could do yoga outside. :) Having a wonderful massage was an extra bonus.

I could say so much more but this is it for now. I’m so happy and grateful for this experience. <3

"Amazing Yoga Retreat in Perfect Location. Recommend 100%"

The rural hotel is beautiful, comfortable and in the most gorgeous location. The room, the shared space, the pool and the peace garden are just fantastic. Could not get tired of the mountain views! Keeping silence until after breakfast and after dinner was great as it gave us the sense of peace and inner connection we are searching for. Loved the yoga classes morning and evening, the honest chats, the shared food, the resting time by the pool, the garden or my balcony. Being in a town full of cherry trees was a plus. The hikes were also amazing! The staff, volunteers and teachers were lovely. Our group connected so well we all became friends with each other and that is another great achievement from this retreat :)

"A slice of heaven"

My experience at yoga sutra shala exceeded my expectations. I loved every aspect of my time spent there. The photographs do not do the place justice at all as it's so much prettier in person.

I haved learned so much which I intend to now put into daily practice. The meditations were all so truly beautiful and even very emotional at times. I'm still feeling the overall benefits of this retreat a few days after returning to my crazy hectic lifestyle.

Namit's style of teaching is very interesting. The flow was basic but very much more focused on correcting alignments which is necessary especially for people like myself who practice solo. He doesn't come around to make adjustments, he prefers to get to know you and personally tell you at the time what needs adjusting. This for some might be awkward but overall it makes more sense, so important to let go of the ego and not take things personally.

All of the volunteers were super lovely, kind, friendly and hard working always willing to please. Yoga Joe from California who took the other class deserves a special mention due to his quirky personality and gentle calming nature.

This was such a wonderful holiday to recharge the soul whilst improving in my yoga practice and making new friends.

Highly recommended!

Thank you to all the staff involved. ♥️😁

"Amazing experience"

My experience in yoga sutra shala exceeded all my expectations. From the moment I arrived was overwhelmed by a feeling of warmth.Was made feel so welcome. The location was just stunning. Eating meals or sipping on one of the many herbal teas and just gazing at the mountains and nature in its finest was just fab. Also practicing yoga and meditating with such unbelievable views was very special. I loved the fact that there were a few hours during the day you could do your own thing between yoga classes. The hike was my favourite but also had some lovely walks through the meditation gardens, fruit picking or just taking in the scenery. The food was out of this world..flavours and recipes I Have never tried and all vegan. Even meat eaters on the retreat raved about the food🙌

The group discussions after evening meal was a great way to bond and I can truly say I have made some great friends. All the yoga instructors and volunteers were just welcoming and lovely people.

I have a much greater understanding of yoga, mindfulness and since leaving can feel an overall sense of calm in myself.

I could go on and on about how much I loved my time here. 10 out of 10. Highly recommend esp if this is your first time doing a yoga retreat.

Thank you namit, pippa, Amy and all the volunteers for a truly amazing experience. Miss you all.

"Peaceful tranquility in the Valencian sunshine."

Yoga Sutra Shala is set in the beautiful Valencian countryside: stunning mountain vistas as you practise yoga outside. A sense of tranquility envelopes you as soon as you enter the historical building. All levels of yoga were catered for by the amazing instructors; each offering something different. The food was not only healthy and wholesome but absolutely delicious too. I loved everything about this retreat and will be practising all I have learned at home until I can return again.

Beautiful accommodation with a very knowledgeable teacher. A perfect balance of yoga, meditation and relaxation. I really enjoyed the informal Q&A sessions with Namit on 2 evenings when we were able to ask him about nutrition, yoga and philosophy. He is a very knowledgeable man.

All the staff and volunteers worked hard and made us all so very welcome. I wouldn't hesitate to return

"Exactly what I was looking for."

I wanted to have a short break from life and learn more about yoga than is possible in my weekly village hall class. The retreat fulfilled all my objectives. I liked the small-scale, personal, friendly and holistic nature of the the house and instruction. The rural location is perfect for walks either guided or solo; beautiful orange orchards, dramatic cliffs and caves and a meandering valley. The food was excellent; nutrition being of the highest importance. The meditation gardens and pool-side area are perfect for quiet reflection and relaxation. Namit, Amy and Pippa were excellent hosts and instructors and the team of volunteers delightful and helpful.

"Lovely place to lift up spirit!"

I liked pretty much everything during my yoga retreat in Yoga Sutra Shala. The whole place is smoothly run and organised in a way that makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed from the arrival date. The vegetarian food is just delicious and you don’t need to be vegetarian to appreciate it.

The secluded location allows you to really wind down and recharge your batteries as you are surrounded with mountains and pure nature. I have been practising Iyengar Yoga for a couple of years but found both vinyasa and restorative yoga extremely beneficial and helpful to improve my postures. All of the teachers are very attentive and look at how you are doing postures and if needed, correct you.

Thank you once again for making my holiday very special!

"A litttle piece of paradise "

This place over exceeded my expectations. There are beautiful gardens with hammocks for you to relax in and look over the mountains in your spare time. There are also numerous walks that you can go on. My yoga teacher was Isabel and she was fantastic. I am new to yoga and she took the time to help both me and the others in my class. She was very knowledgeable and an inspirational teacher. Depending on the weather we either used the yoga studio, or practiced out by the pool or in the gardens...what a wonderful setting! Meditation and chanting were both new to me and I enjoyed both.

The house itself is beautiful and the rooms were spacious, nicely decorated and very clean.

And then we have the food...well, what can I say? Not only is it nutritionally balanced, but thought has gone into each meal in regards to taste and it was just amazing.

Namit was very welcoming and is very knowledgeable about nutrition and yoga. I feel that I learnt lots here and also had the chance to re-energise and forget about the world. Highly recommended.

"Séjour exceptionnel, expérience unique"

Ce séjour était parfait en tout point. Le cadre, le lieu, la cuisine, les professeurs... Nous avons exceptionnellement bien mangé, une cuisine Vegan fait maison, inventive et délicieuse. Nous ne manquons de rien. Le cadre est magnifique, la maison avec la piscine et le jardin de méditation juste fabuleux... les cours de yoga et de méditation étaient approfondies et très sérieux. Le groupe a été divisé en un niveau hatha un peu plus débutant et un groupe vinyasa plus intermédiaire. Séjour ressourcant, pour se reconnecter à notre être profond, à la nature et à notre corps. Je ne peux que conseiller vivement ce séjour à n'importe qui. J'y retournerais très certainement. Merci à toute l'équipe de sutra shala...

"An inspiring week at a special place "

There is a very special atmosphere in the Shala which makes you immediately relax. The view over the valley and on the mountains is stunning. The colours of the mountains change with the sunlight during day... For me, it was the first yoga retreat and I travelled on my own. It was so easy to connect to the other people and I felt comfortable and welcome from the beginning. The yoga classes and workshops are very professional and they offer many additional workshops and private classes. It is also nice that the yoga teachers take part in most of the meals and other activities, such as hikes. So there is plenty of time for questions. We did the hikes in the morning as sunrise tours, which started at 6am. I am not a morning person but I am very happy I did both hikes because the sunrise and the view was magic. For me, the meditation garden was also an inspiring place. There are hammocks everywhere and you can relax and enjoy the quietness. I went there everyday for journaling.

I was there in August and it was quite hot, so it was great to have a pool which was like the central meeting point for everyone to socialise. Last but not least, the vegan food was sooo good. Thanks to Fernanda, Leyley and Denise!!!

"Highly recommend this retreat"

When you arrive and walk towards the pool, the view you see is unbelievable. I have seen many pictures from this resort before, but to actually be there is breath taking. The views of the valley and the meditation garden are just so peacefull, I can only recommend people to come here to deconnect and enjoy the lovely yoga and meditation classes. The teachers are very professional and it's nice you get to be taught by all of them a few times because they each have their own beautiful personality. The food was so fresh and organic and so well prepared, the chef really knows what she is doing. The rest of the team makes you feel so very welcome and you can ask them anything. I never have done a yoga retreat before, but this one set some really high standards. I will be back!


from United States, February 2019

The time at the Yoga Sutra Shala was just amazing. The people are so nice and kind and there is just a really nice atmosphere. It's the best place to calm down and get into meditation and yoga. The house is really big and there is huge meditation garden and a nice outdoor area. The beds were really comfortable and everything is clean. I liked the balance between free time and activities and that you don't have to join the classes if you don't want to. There are plenty of nice books about spirituality and nutrition etc. I really liked that.

The food was just more than amazing !! Awesome healthy vegan meals !!

Namit and the other teachers were really nice and helpful and I really enjoyed the talks about nutrition with Namit.

It was just a amazing experience and I would come back any time.

Empezando por la acogida hasta la despedida estaba todo el personal y voluntarios pendientes de nuestro bienestar. Han ofrecido mucho más que lo que ponían en la página web. Mucho talento entre los voluntarios. Me ha enseñado lo importante que son el yoga y el silencio para poder disfrutar de cada momento. Ahora, de vuelta a casa , si en algún momento necesito relax , llamo las imagines de ese sitio tan precioso y me ayuda a sobrellevar momentos malos. Namasté

"Extraordinary experience"

My stay at the Yoga Sutra Shala in August 2018 was also the first time doing a yoga retreat for me. The atmosphere was very warm and personal and the whole group of other guests including the volunteers was just lovely. I also enjoyed the food (mostly vegan, but also some dairy options) very much. The view from the pool was breathtaking, the mediation garden is magical. During the yoga classes, Namit gives a lot of help with alignment, which is very important in his classes in general. I really appreciated that and learned a lot. We also had the chance to ask him questions about nutrition -which he very likely knows more about than any nutritionist or doctor I'd ever talked to- and yoga philosophy, and his answers were swift and very insightful. On some days I took Yin classes with Charlie whose warmth and soothing voice everyone loved. She also taught us some very effective approaches to meditation. The hiking trip to La Foradá with Lieke was amazing! One day, two of the volunteers taught us how to make energy balls, which I've already made at home and eat at work instead of unhealthy snack options. Everyone there is really making an effort to make the stay as enjoyable as possible for their guests. I absolutely loved it and will be back :)!

The accomodation was really amazing, the food was very tasty most of the time. If you didn't like something they did the effort to make a bowl expecially for you. Joe's classes of yoga were great (Hatha), unfortunately he is not there all year round. The peace in the house was super. Good swimming pool. Beautiful rooms, bathrooms, places to sit everywhere, big garden to walk through. Pittoresk village. Friendly staff.

Heb heel veel yogalessen over de hele wereld gevolgd maar Namit is echt de beste leraar!!!!

Hij heeft alles in de gaten. Oog voor detail. Hij laat je echt voelen hoe een oefening moet. Wat het met je doet. Het verschil tussen je hand of voet één cm meer naar voren of rechts. Dat yoga alles maar dan ook alles met ademhalen te maken heeft. Geweldig!!!

Het eten was Super lekker!!!

Vreselijk lieve mensen!!!!
