"Fantastic yoga retreat "
A fantastic yoga retreat with very friendly and knowledgeable yoga teachers. I highly recommend. I have learnt not only more about yoga but also about the Ayurvedic philosophy and ways to improve general well being. It was a perfect way to start the new year as I now feel more grounded and inspired. Looking forward to returning in the near future!

"A wonderful yoga retreat"
The teachers were evidently extremely knowledgeable about yoga- and had a very holistic practise due to their extensive study of yoga & health and well-being in general.
The retreat was relaxed, and we were made to feel very much at home.
The accommodation was spotlessly clean and very comfortable.

"The best way to refresh and restore"
I loved the fact that despite not being very experienced at yoga, I could take part in all the classes as they can be adapted. I learnt so much about important daily practises and about myself. The extra workshops are fascinating and there is time to walk or use a Soundwave chair if you wish, in addition to the other activities. The hosts are very warm and welcoming and have a lovely home.

"Amazing retreat - highly recommend!"
The yoga and meditation sessions and workshops were all excellent. Anne-Marie and James were extremely supportive and welcoming - it was a very special weekend in a beautiful setting. I learned a lot about ayurveda, had some amazing massage treatments with Kelly-Anne and left feeling rejuvenated - I will definitely be returning!
