PROS A fantastic experience overall- Zita was genuine, warm and able to cater for all abilities within the yoga sessions with her knowledge of the practice. The retreat was elevated above others by the gentle incorporation of all aspects of the yoga lifestyle- including philosophy, diet and much more- in a non-intrusive and respectful way. Thank you Zita!
"Very few yoga teachers are able to blend the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga into a single weekend and still make it fun and relevant for a mixed group of yogis. Zita has that skill and led a brilliantly relaxing retreat in the North Yorkshire countryside. Recommended!"
"Had a fantastic time at Zita Fitness. Went with my daughter who had done a little bit of yoga and I was a complete novice. Zita was a fantastic teacher and very patient. Accommodation was first rate with lovely rooms. Full programme with lots of yoga, workshops and assisting with preparing the delicious vegetarian meals. If you only ever get the chance to go on one yoga retreat in your life then this should be the one! Would highly recommend it and would certainly make a return visit."
"My experience with Zita Fitness was amazing. Zita was very welcoming and the experience began as soon as we entered the door. The Yoga studio we practiced in was perfect and everything was provided to enable us to practice. The instruction from Zita was tailored to our individual needs and I truly felt I was being taught by a Master and because of that my practice has developed. Our accommodation was perfect and we were made to feel at home and experience a truly Yogic way of being. Zita is the perfect teacher if you want to really learn about Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation. Thank you for a beautiful and enlightening as well as fun time. I wish you joy."
"From the first day I met Zita, I was inspired to get fit and be healthy! I wanted to be like Zita. The tall, beautiful, incredibly strong, kind, honest, and giving person who stood before me. Zita has time for everyone! She goes out of her way to help you reach your true potential and helps you believe in yourself. She offers advice on all aspects of health and fitness. She is a true professional!"
