    Dear Tripaneer folks, A little overdue... but I would like to share my appreciation of the week retreat at Michael's place in Medellin. I was the only student that week and thoroughly enjoyed the setting, lovely home in parque Lleras and my nice room there which seemed to be in the forest (canopy of trees). Michael connects easily, is accessible and is a fun guy overall to be with. moreover he "has been there' in real live experience and has subsequently immersed himself in Buddhist teachings and yoga practice. This, in my opinion, gives him the edge in hosting such intimate retreats in which mere technique does not suffice. You need to connect at a deeper level and understand the challenges of others and that is what he does. Switching easily to the lighter side of things. Take the chance and experience for yourself., also the yoga iyengar is the best yoga I have experienced anywhere and taught expertly by Michael. I loved the combination of meditation and yoga daily and the opportunity to explore the fascinating city. I am very thankful for our insightful conversations and friendship and hope to see you soon! Ps the food is home cooked and delicious! ask Michael to prepare his native rosti, it's amazing! Please confirm that you will publish this.

    La Casa de Loto was an amazing experience. A time of yoga and meditation with wonderful people. Many Thanks to Micol and Maria who made my week.

    My full week in La Casa de Loto was just what I needed after 5 months travelling;

    practicing yoga and meditation every day, eating healthy Ayurvedic food, having inspiring (and funny) converstations and being surrounded by the cutest animals.

    It was my first experience with Iyengar yoga and I really enjoyed the way Michael uses this style to teach his classes.

    This week definitely recharged me again and I met some amazing people, that made the experience even more precious!

    Thank you all for sharing guys and take care

    The Yoga Meditation & Ayurveda Temple Medellin website

    Michaels yoga retreat was a great experience, I learned a lot about the benefits of yoga and meditation and techniques to improve my ability to practice this wonderful expression of spirituality. Michael has a wealth of knowledge in this area and guides you through it with calm and patience. Try it out for yourselves. You won't regret it.

    The Yoga Meditation & Ayurveda Temple Medellin website

    I first met Pema or Michael two years ago. As I grew up in Italy (macho land), he first seemed to be a crazy guy to me with all his meditation and yoga. But seeing him basically serene and happy all of the time, I thought I have to try whatever he is doing. Since then, I have taken three retreats with him and it is incredible how my life has changed. I have learned so much through the practices - to simply let life flow and not taking things too personally. I have gained lots of mental and physical strength and a confidence which now allows me to lead the life I always wanted. Michael and all the rest of the Sati team are amazing beings and I highly recommend his classes and retreats. Hasta pronto.

    Searching the web for retreats in Medellin lead me to Michael's yoga retreat. At that time, I was seeking a structured and peaceful environment that offered yoga, meditation, and a wholesome space to escape a frenetic hostel lifestyle and alleviate myself from intense anxiety and the self-destructive decisions I was making. Upon arriving at the Ayurveda temple, I was surprised to find that the yoga retreat would not take place in the mountains of Medellin, but rather in a large apartment. My initial disappointment very quickly past when Michael greeted me at the door with a presence of absolute tranquility and warmth. I immediately was overcome with the confidence that the peaceful being before me would be integral in my healing and soulful development.

    Michael's program offered a structure perfectly suited to my needs. He led me on two guided meditations daily, provided the opportunity to practice yoga every day at a nearby studio, access to a wonderful Ayurvedic healer, as well as Reiki, meditation, and massage practitioners of various backgrounds and experience. Michael went above and beyond the expectations of a retreat facilitator. Over the course of the month, Michael and I grew close and developed a wonderful relationship. He counseled me and helped me immensely with personal issues, offering advice and suggestions in a respectful manner. His openness and authenticity helped me to share with him and allowed the relationship to develop into a friendship.

    I immensely enjoyed cooking with Michael, dining out occasionally, taking nature walks, going on day trips, and meeting his close circle of friends. I found the yoga retreat to be very flexible and tailored to suit my needs. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have met Michael, who served as a healer and role model. I learned so much, more so from observation and reflection as opposed to Michael instructing me in a teacher-like manner. He introduced me to some amazing people who all inspired me with their selflessness and desire to help others. I am so appreciative to these individuals who were all integral in helping me to return to a positive space and cultivate beneficial lifestyle choices.

    I am sure that Michael is a Buddha. He has got great views and also is a very nice teacher. Please don't decide to become a monk. We need people like you outside of monasteries!

    Staying with Michael is one of the best things I have ever done! I booked for two weeks and ended up staying for five. Michael has put together the perfect combination of daily meditation, yoga, and medical check ups. The yoga center is full of friendly and experienced teachers, and the Ayurvedic doctor is knowledgable and caring. Michael teaches new ways to meditate based on Tibetan Buddhism and provides a very compassionate and calm space for meditation.

    My time in Medellin gave me space to return to my center, and focus on my mental and physical health. It is all encompassing! I learnt so much about Buddhism and taking care of myself. I am so grateful for the experience. Thanks again, Michael. If you are looking for a space to re-center, this is it!
