"There are no words to describe"

This was an unforgettable experience (at risk of using clichés) - Rose and Ian gave themselves completely to ensure that we had the most peaceful and heartwarmingly enjoyable time in their beautiful Secret Garden.

The teachings are invaluable. Rose has so much relatable life experience of having followed her own path to awakening and finding her true self, and it shines in her guidance. She is unconditionally compassionate and helpful - importantly, in that she gives you the tools and courage to explore yourself through meditation and inner reflection via your own very personal path. Not to mention, she puts her heart and soul into the most delicious and fresh food that is packed with flavour and life.

Ian is a huge-hearted and caring, special person. Its clear that nothing makes him happier than to aid people and watch their growth. He is intelligent and has excellent knowledge about a range of practices involving Yoga, body awareness and massage. Together as a team, they complement each other's knowledge in teaching you to listen to your body, mind and soul.

The place itself is situated by the most precious and pure river, Rio Genal, which makes for the perfect backdrop to spiritual discovery.

"Yoga und Meditation im Garten Eden"

Das Yoga und die Mediattion, die Hängematte unter den Orangenbäumen, das köstliche und gesunde Essen von Rose, der sehr persönliche Unterricht, die Liebe mit der dieser Ort gestaltet wurde, der Fluss vor dem Garten Eden in dem man wunderbar baden kann, die Wanderwege rundherum, die Ruhe, das Vogelgezwitscher, das köstliche Wasser aus eigener Quelle - also mir gefiel einfach alles und zwar weit besser als erwartet!

"Eine perfekte Woche"

Der Aufenthalt im Secret Garden hat unsere Erwartungen absolut übertroffen. Die Atmosphäre war sehr persönlich, warm und fürsorglich, der Tagesablauf individuell auf die Wünsche der kleinen Gruppe abgestimmt. Sowohl Yoga als auch Meditation waren keine vorgefertigten Programme, sondern wurden perfekt auf unsere Bedürfnisse angepasst. Das Essen von Rose war ein Traum - die Massagen von Ian waren außergewöhnlich und intensiv. Absolut empfehlenswert.

"The place to find inner peace"

I didn't investigate much before I came here, had booked quite spontaneously, and was grateful to find exactly what I needed: Silence in a beautiful setting far away from my usual everyday routine in the crazy city, the total opposite of what I had been used to. I learned how to meditate without having too many expectations before. The atmosphere was ideal for being open to it. So meditation "worked" for me right from the start and I was thrilled. I managed to let go of a couple of issues... I could feel that things were moving and that it did me good.

At night I sat on a sofa outside watching the stars - I had never seen that many at a time before!

Thank you so much, Rose and Ian, for this wonderful experience! Your Secret Garden is just a beautiful place! Thank you for sharing, caring, tasty meals, good conversations, good stretches, relaxing massages and your warmth!

Love, Jana

I was really struggling when I decided to take time-out of my life to focus on myself – I was over-analyzing everything, criticizing myself constantly, I wasn’t sleeping well, I was finding it difficult to make decisions, my concentration was dwindling, and I had completely lost my mojo. Thankfully, I had the good sense to remove myself from my environment, job and relationships and retreat to the Secret Garden for a week. From the moment I spoke to Rose on the phone, I felt reassured that I was going to the right place. When I arrived at the location near Genalguacil, Andalusia, the first thing that struck me was the beauty of the place. Situated in an orchard valley in the mountains, which was blooming at the time, there was a real energy about the place, not to mention the smell of citrus wafting through the air. There were only 2 other girls on the retreat with me so it was very much a personalized retreat. Roses’ husband Ian led our yoga sessions, which I absolutely loved – they energized us in the mornings before breakfast. He also gave me one of the best massages of my life! However, it was the meditation that was the real breakthrough for me. I had zero experience in meditating prior to going on this retreat but this didn’t seem to matter. I learned to move outside of my head and connect with my heart and my true self. Rose also gave us some really useful tools to take with us to equip us in our further pursuit of healing and peace. I could continue on about the beautiful yurt, the river that runs through the finca and the food, the amazing food but I will finish up by saying that this is truly a special place & Rose and Ian are really great people, and I highly recommend The Secret Garden to anyone feeling a little lost in life or just want to reconnect with themselves or nature. I will be back, that’s for sure!
