    • Review by Cristina Anton from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

      "The retreat was perfect! Annette and Miguel were charming hosts and wonderful teachers. I felt at home during my stay (thanks to Bianca too, one of the loveliest persons I have found in my life). The house is beautiful and quiet, the food was delicious and I really enjoyed the yoga classes. I came back home feeling great, renewed and calm. Now I only want to practice yoga. I have never done yoga in my life. I only did a couple of classes that did not go very well. I have been practicing pilates for many years and I had the sensation that I have enough technique background to take my abilities to the next step and for me, that was yoga, meaning connecting mind and body. I was not really interested in strenuous and perfect postures, but I was more interested in the connection. I was quite surprised when I found out that Miguel and Annette were teaching exactly what I was looking for. I recommend this retreat to everybody and I am thankful for all the things that I have enjoyed and learned during my stay."

      "We have been led through an enriching and above all relaxing week by Annette and her team in a very careful, professional and affectionate way. For us the flowing together of Yoga, Meditation, Hiking and Being was very stimulant and relaxing. And the surroundings matched it perfectly: a wonderful house, homely, plain, aesthetic, which alone already works as a soothing place. Upon this adds the culinary art with Brunch and Dinner, which had us all enthused. We will surely repeat this week with the Yogafriends. Thank you very much Annette and your team!"

      "We arrived at the yoga retreat without knowing what to expect and left sun-kissed, well-nourished, with flexible muscles and a calm mind and filled with happiness. Annette and Miguel are doing a great job in making everybody feel comfortable, during the sessions and outside the yoga room. The house is very modern, food is simply excellent and we had a great time discovering the beautiful island. Both Adi and I highly recommend this yoga adventure."

    • "The visitor needs to rent car to reach beaches and other placesSome recommendations for future improvements: Each room needs more furniture (chairs and an table). To find more easily the yoga friends in Lajares village must advertise more on local supermarket, shops, etc. their location."

      "We have felt extrodinarily comfortable with you and came back to Germany like “newborn”. The yoga sessions with Mandi and Bianca have given me a lot and I found the tips and corrections very helpful. The food was gigantic. A full culinary highlight every evening. I miss the time with you and hope, that I can keep up the positive energy which I have brought back with me."

      "One week of yoga retreat in Lajares, Fuerteventura was a wonderful experience. Everything just fitted me perfectly. The ambience was all around very beautiful and had a relaxing effect. The yoga lessons with Annette Arndt and guest teacher Mandi Suppan were really instructional and beneficial. There was always an alternative posture, when the asana practice got too difficult for me. On top the excellent food and the really pleasant massages turned this week into a real time out. A lot of the positive impulses I was able to take home. I can only say: Thank you for the beautiful time."

      "We had an unforgetable and restorative week on the island. Situated in a small, but lively village in the north of Fuerteventura we found the seeked after tranquility in a wonderfully designed retreat center with impressive views on the volcanic landscape of the surroundings. The twice daily Yoga session were adapted individually to our little group in the mornings easier and more relaxing to wake up, in the evenings more dynamic and sweaty. The accommodaiton and offered activities were uniquely complemented with the freshly prepared breakfast and yummy dinner. If you look for tranquility and relaxing but without boredom, in this yoga retreat you are at the right address"

When we are attending to yoga retreats we need to active time off (holiday) with peaceful and friendly people in beautiful environment. We received it! We were honored to be the first guests on the retreat of Annettes and Miguels house. Annette and Miguel created extremely friendly, welcoming atmosphere on the retreat. We are truly appreciating it."
