    Really good yoga teaching in a very friendly atmosphere.

    small group.

    Super remedial massage linked to correcting yoga practice.

    Some sharing of bathrooms , but this was minor and not all rooms.

    I went on the BE Yoga Retreats French Retreat in May. It was all I had hoped for and more! Excellent yoga classes, delicious food, friendly, warm atmosphere, and luxurious accommodation. Can't wait to go on another one!

    My family and I had a fantastic week in Carcassonne, France, with BE Yoga Retreats! Elise is an amazing teacher and her lessons catered perfectly for the different ability levels amongst the class. We also had one-on-one lessons with Elise to improve technique and develop a personal home routine, which encouraged us to keep up the yoga at home! The back massage, foot spa treatment, and Indian head massage were exceptionally good - Elise managed to diffuse the hip pain that I've suffered from for a very long time! Bob, Cathy, and Becky were perfect hosts and hostesses and we felt that nothing was ever too much trouble to ask. The food was exceptional and the location fantastic - we are very grateful to Elise and her family for all their hard work as we had an incredible week and came away feeling relaxed and a lot more flexible! Keep doing what you're doing guys!

    I would like to thank you both for a wonderful yoga evening last night. A well thought-through yoga session, with some very challenging postures, a delicious curry meal, and good company; the perfect start to the weekend! Thank you both for your commitment.

    I went on a retreat last May, which was so thoughtfully put together. The classes were great, food wonderful, and atmosphere relaxing and friendly throughout. Would definitely recommend it!

    I attended a Christmas workshop, which was wonderfully restorative. There was lots of attention to detail, with lighting, scents, and also the yummy treats afterwards. Would recommend it!

    This retreat has changed everything I feel and know about Yoga. My understanding and appreciation of Yoga have been so superficial until now. I feel like this weekend was the first ( truest) time I've practices real Yoga. I came feeling tired scared and disappointed in myself. I leave this place a different person to the one who arrived. I feel incredibly grateful for the gift of this experience. I'm a bit worried about leaving here, going back into the real world and forgetting all the amazing techniques and tools to help keep centered and of this world. I'd love to hear from Elise in the next few weeks/months post retreat Kosha check- in as a reminder of what we learned and experienced here. Becky- thank you for nourishing our hungry tummy and souls- you're wonderful! Elise Thank you for giving me both roots and wings this weekend- last week was such a dark time and I leave with shards of light beaming out of me!

    Amazing location, so peaceful. venue was perfect for a weekend retreat but not for any longer ( beds uncomfortable, showers a bit rubbish) Elise's classes were amazing. I loved the content. Such a patient, positive, inspiring teacher. The food delicious!! Thank you so much for helping me to improve my practice, relax and eat well. I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend

    Excellent- location was convenient and beautiful venue. The accommodation was basic but the pluses of space and surrounding more than made up for that. Catering delicious. The Yoga- great classes in calm and inspiring location. The full schedule- really enjoyed the holistic approach and all the other classes. How well organized it was- you really sensed the family values- everyone was so friendly and caring- really exceeded expectations. The schedule felt full and busy without being overwhelming. Good pace with time to relax and appreciate the Yoga sessions. Thank you for taking such good care of us!

    Great location, nice to be close to the ridgeway and lots of outside space. Staff and catering great as ever. Highlights: Yoga classes but the activities were also great and really interesting. Food was lovely. Retreat schedule: Really busy which I like but time for breaks and rest.

    Catering excellent, staff excellent, location excellent, venue mostly excellent (hard beds). Highlights, making the various things, learning more meditation, learning Indian Head massage. Do you consider the retreat value for money? Compared to other yoga retreats and for the amount you do, yes.

    All fantastic- especially the whole BE Yoga Team. The highlights was food! Learning about the 5 energy sheaths, Learning about the alignment and putting more strength into postures, meditation and stories. Were you happy with the retreat schedule - Yes worked really well- lot of fun but gentle activities between yoga. Could have easily done one more day. Excellent value for money. Thank you for a wonderful and insightful weekend lots of learning to take away, all thoroughly enjoyable. Namaste

    Catering was delicious and a mix of yummy food. Venue, location, and staff, great. Highlights: Focusing on the breath and energy throughout the postures and learning about the 5 layers. Learning and feeling about the specific alignment in postures. All the workshops also great fun. Excellent food. Loved this retreat. Yoga was fantastic and opened my eyes to exploring deeper into the energy side of Yoga. Thank you all.

    Having just enjoyed a week there, I can recommend it unreservedly. 10 out of 10 on everything.

    Thank you for a great De-tox week. Once again the two workshops were well organised with great yoga classes, well chosen activities and healthy yummy food. The daily videos were just right and it was good to have the face-book group to share how we were doing and feel supported. Recipes were fab and will become part of my regular diet. It was great experience and a lot of thought and planning had clearly gone into the preparation.

    The yoga, the food, the people were great, the venue was freezing cold and overall shabby.

    Response from BE Yoga Retreats

    We are delighted to say that the feedback we received for our weekend retreat at Paddington Farm was overwhelmingly positive! However this was a new venue for us on a cold November weekend and unfortunately some of the rooms weren't as warm as we would have liked. If we do return there it will be in the warmer summer months next time.

    As the same level of hard work goes into preparation of our schedules, hosting and catering for every retreat, (for which we always receive excellent feedback) the only way we can offer these very popular budget retreats is by going to more basic venues and we endeavour to manage expectations beforehand with our listings descriptions and photos.

    As well as our cheaper retreats we also offer retreats in more luxurious venues, which we hope enables us to cater for a range of budgets and tastes. We look forward to welcoming Dorothy on one of our more luxurious retreats where we are able to guarantee heat, comfort and stylish accommodation.

    I loved it, it was a great day of yoga, good company and lovely refreshments. It was a really interesting theme and you had clearly done lots of preparation to help make the Koshas accessible to us. I always enjoy learning some yoga philosophy and tying it into the asana, pranayama and meditation. I thought the venue was perfect. So quiet, with good facilities and appropriate space for us to practice. Thanks so much for a lovely relaxing day (I slept so deeply that night!).

  • Carla

    Thanks so much for organizing such a wonderful day retreat. Both the yoga and the food were amazing. It was a lot of work, as I haven’t really attended a class for about six months, but I loved that it was a one-day retreat and meant I didn’t have to make plans beyond the weekend to get there. The whole day was very well thought out and I benefited from it enormously, in many ways.

    Fantastic Yoga Detox weekend in January. Every day packed with practice, meditation, relaxation and creative activities (but no pressure to join in if we just wanted to relax in front of the fire!). The food was sooooo good. Elise and Becky really give attention to detail, which shows in the smooth, relaxed delivery.
