"Rachele is an amazing yoga teacher"
It was my first yoga retreat and I realized how lucky I was to be in such a nice environment and have such an amazing yoga teacher already the first day of the retreat! We were 12 people with very different levels and Rachele has been able to adapt her pratice to all of us. Her instructions are extremely precise so that each asana is easy to understand and there is absolutely no risk of injury. It has been an incredible experience and every one has made huge progress! It's a real pity that Rachele doesn't live in Berlin, otherwise I would come to her classes as often as possible!!

"Great experience! "
Rachele and yoga classes were perfect!
This retreat had a beautiful mix between extremely professional teachings in asana (yoga postures), philosophy, and meditation, yet still felt like a holiday, with love, fun, and a true family homey feeling. The forest location makes you feel like you’re completely away from everything, and allows you to fully relax and enjoy. The food, atmosphere, classes, location, and people were just amazing. This is the perfect get away where you can improve your personal practice, upgrade your knowledge on yoga philosophy, live the yogi lifestyle, and all together spend a beautiful time with fellow yogi lovers!
It was my first yoga retreat and I think it's going to be my favourite way to spend some time away each summer! Rachel has organized everything perfectly and the schedule was exactly right, with a mix of yoga asana classes, philosophy discussions, various types of meditation and delicious meals taken together in a super friendly atmosphere. We even developed a morning ritual in which we chatted gathered over Italian coffee - and I definitely miss that as a prelude to yoga now that we are back in the city! I've learnt a lot from Rachel and improved my asanas during the retreat and it was an honor and a delight to get to know Gurudji Yogendra Mishra and learn about yoga and sanskrit from him. The location was perfect too, on the edge of the small Białowieża town and only 5 minutes' walk away from the best preserved forest in the whole of Europe! We loved the animal reserve and the strict reserve where humans are not allowed unsupervised. I'd recommend it to everybody who will appreciate a cozy, fun, engaging, yet relaxing stay with some wonderful people involved.
7 days yoga retreat in Bialowieza with great teacher Rachele Faiella (from Yoga Studio in Warsaw) and our special guest Yogi Ji Yogendra Mishra from India were inspiring and gave necessary knowledge on yoga philosophy, yoga postures (techniques and effects of asanas), pranayama and meditation.
Bialowieza is the place where you can feel relief and close contact with nature.
This yoga retreat was a transformative and challenging experience. It was worth it:)
