Yoga Retreats (20)
Perumal Koshy, an Indian born American citizen, began teaching 30 years ago under a Los Angeles Kung-Fu master. His past 18-years yoga teaching journey crossed India, England, Italy, and Morocco. Over 7 years teaching in Marrakech spa hotels lead to the Spa Yoga Retreat Concept. The inspiration sparked in Marrakech is now blazing in Lake Garda, Italy where the spa and thermal therapies are firmly rooted.
Starting with over a decade of ballet, Cristina soon moved across to regular & reformer Pilates. She then decided to make the jump to yoga & this very special discipline. Back in 2008, she went looking for a yoga teacher & came across Pietro Saleri from Samtosha Yoga Studio. Specializing in Hatha yoga, she was soon accepted onto the Renato Turla Teacher Training Course (utilising the Jyotim Method). After garnering something of a reputation, she wanted to further her craft so completed a second TTC of the Jyotim Method but this time with Giancarlo Pito in Rivoltella.

It identifies energy blocks to facilitate their dissolution. The approach is applicable to to all ages and background. Muscular development and increased flexibility is achieved to create psycho-physical equilibrium.
Nikoleta was born in Bulgaria & moved to Italy in 1999. She started her yoga practice with Pietro Saleri in 2009 at his yoga school “Samtosha“. Following was teacher training under Master Renato Turla in “Kanda” Yoga Institute & an apprenticeship in the yoga school “Samtosha. During the lessons Nikoleta does not practice with the students. Instead she shows the asana along with explaining posture details necessary to build correctly the position, physically correcting when necessary. This is to prevent potential injury & obtain full benefit of the postures. All lessons finish with a relaxation

"Not a Yoga Holiday"
Hotel was good and clean, pool area with garden was very pleasant and it was close to the lake. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.
The teacher was helpful and knows a lot about breathing techniques.

My instructors (Ms. Bezzi and Ms. Scapin) were wonderful. Both of them were amazing teachers and gave me a very valuable yoga experience. The hotel was beautiful, clean, and very relaxing. The spa was excellent and the location was great (about a 10 minute walk to the charming town of Peschiera del Garda). I was also able to visit other towns on the lake from this location.

I highly recommend Perumal

"An Overall Excellent Experience"
I attended a 4-day yoga retreat instructed by Perumal. I found his approach to be profound; encouraging deep release and agility. I've returned from the retreat refreshed, rejuvenated, and renewed.
Perumal is an intelligent, kind, cultured person. His yoga practice is informed by years of experience teaching yoga in various countries. He has an elegant manner and an interesting, colorful history. His passion for yoga and for life are reflected in his organization of the retreat.
The retreat was in Riva Del Garda at the Hotel Grand Liberty. The hotel had a lovely spa, great food, and a superb staff. The indoor pool was a treat. The town was charming and a delight to explore.
All in all, the retreat was a positive experience, and I would definitely return for another retreat with Perumal.

Training in kleiner Gruppe
Sehr gute Dehnübungen
Yoga abwechselnd im klimatisierten Raum und am Pool
It has been great experience going to my first retreat. I enjoyed the yoga experience very much as I was never a fan to yoga before. It has helped me learned about my body and yoga benefits in this brief journey. I would like to have another retreat again in near future but this time I will choose close to warmer season as yearend was a little too cold for me.
