"I came on the retreat with the aims of being able to return to practising yoga after my knee injury, to detox from coffee and sugar and to enjoy the serene location. The retreat surpassed my expectations! The location of the villa, the villa itself, the yoga classes and the evening meditation classes were all excellent and the therapy I received was magical. The meals and drinks provided were delicious, inspirational and most importantly prevented withdrawal cravings! It was well worth gifting myself with this experience. I felt absolutely restored after a longstanding injury, and I enjoyed the process too."

Jacqueline & Claudia
"The location was very peaceful, the rooms were nice and there was a great communal area. I enjoyed an excellent massage and I loved the meals without exception. Jacqueline and Claudia are extremely knowledgeable about the holistic nature of the entire yoga practise which helped me to understand the point of my own physical practise."
Harriett Kemp 2017
"Lovely villa with an incredible view. The teachers were knowledgeable and empathetic and the classes were at an accessible level to everyone with a good vibe! The massage was fantastic and the food tasty- lovely to experience such flavours. Knowledgeable teaching and wholesome vegetarian food in a spectacular Ibizan location with like-minded souls- what’s not to like!? Thanks for a fantastic few days, full of renewal."
"The villa is great and the views are spectacular. Claudia and Jacqueline have clearly had a lot of training and experience and are both really good at teaching. The morning and afternoon yoga classes were just what I needed. Some of it was difficult for me because I’ve been out of practise for so long. A good wake-up call! The evening meditation was also very effective.
Overall I had an amazing experience. The food was healthy and delicious- I have so many great ideas for good, healthy vegetarian meals now! The teachers were skilled, knowledgeable and caring and I also had a massage- which was exceptional. I was hoping to start the New Year renewed, relaxed and living a healthier life overall. This absolutely exceeded my expectations."
Kelly Meade 2017
"The villa was beautiful and set in a magical location. The yoga teachers and overall quality of teaching was excellent, pitched at the right level and intelligent and purposeful. I felt trust at all times. The evening meditation was also inspiring and I enjoyed a very good massage. There was also a lovely Christmas lunch!"
"The yoga classes were excellent and the evening meditation was perfect. It was a mesmerising experience, far above any expectations. I would have never thought I’d be able to sit still for 30 minutes! I feel incredibly energised and peaceful."
"I came to the retreat to relax, do some physical activity, find peace, enjoy nice healthy food and relieve stress. The morning and afternoon yoga classes were very well balanced and the meals were excellent; light and satiating with very nice presentation.
I am very happy to have shared this experience with my husband; we both enjoyed it very much and I hope it will change/improve our habits at home."
"I came to the retreat to detox, improve my yoga, relax and “reset” in general.
I feel more relaxed and my head is clearer than when I arrived. I learned a lot about yoga postures and the teachers were extremely good, each one with her own style. The class layout was perfect, with an active and dynamic morning yoga class balanced with a softer one in the evenings. The place was beautiful- very comfortable and the retreat meals were marvellous! I appreciate that a lot of special care was taken about my special dietary requirements- thank you. New Years Eve was nice with the special meditation and the walk under the stars. Thank you for the very good moments!"
This retreat certainly gave me a glow. From the first rate yoga and meditation and the excellent teaching, the superb quality and imagination behind the vegetarian meals, the expert treatments, the luxury of the villa in secluded countryside setting with plenty of opportunity for walks, and comfortable bedrooms, it was a unique mix of practise and pampering I’ll be reaping the benefits from for a long time in 2017! Claudia and Jacqueline are first rate teachers; deeply knowledgeable, uplifting, clear, humorous and empathetic. The teaching enabled me to refresh my knowledge of yoga and meditation and shape up a few positions through their attentive and thorough approach. Inspiring and motivating, empowering and nurturing! The experience was very encouraging and helpful about fitting yoga and meditation practise into our everyday lives- very helpful."

"The retreat was very good. I loved the beautiful surroundings and the possibility to just sit and enjoy the view from the terrace. Teachers, yoga and meditation classes, talks and demonstrations were all very high quality. The retreat meals and drinks were very good and an inspiration to try to do my cooking differently when I come back home."
