    This was my first yoga retreat after only two months of regular hatha and restorative classes, and I had a fantastic time. I cant describe how special a location La Rejana is and how relaxing the views are, even better than the photos! The yoga for me was challenging enough, with real expert instruction and emphasis on alignment and relaxation, and building poses throughout each class. This will help me in my ongoing practise. The food prepared daily by Michael was always delicious, fresh, and healthy with a few treats too.What made this holiday special and unforgettable for me was how comfortable Mirka and Michael made us feel, with all our needs met, including pet therapy from Max, Lola and the two lovebirds! That, and also company and laughter every day with interesting, warm, lively and memorable people in the group - friendships were made. I will definitely return.

    Thank you so much Mirka and Michael for a wonderful stay. I felt very much looked after in everything (the yoga, accommodation, facilities, food, and most of all, the hospitality).Mirka, you were very considerate of my hamstring injury and I could take part in everything using the modifications when needed. I have noted lots of ideas for better technique, strengthening and stretching. I know my practice will become better.Michael, your recipes were very delicious and I felt very good eating them knowing they were so nourishing.The setting for La Rejana is so beautiful. On the last two days, we were really able to appreciate it. Thank you also for the relaxed atmosphere. There was no pressure and all needs were met (when asked for).My massage by Alvaro was wonderful. It was thorough and strong - just what I needed. I feel very refreshed and energized after the retreat. Thank you so much again. Namaste.

    I was so stressed when I arrived and I needed a retreat. You helped me in every way. The yoga was great and very well given with a personal touch by Mirka. The great food was vegetarian, so tasty, well-cooked, varied and presented. My wife even photographed all the dishes, she was so impressed! Your beautiful house in its hill setting staggeringly is impressive. Most of all, you opened your house for us made us welcome and made us feel like old friends where nothing seem too much trouble. I have learned so much from you that thank you seems too small a phrase, but thank you!Thank you both for the most relaxing time I have ever had. I have felt truly pampered and looked after in both your company. Mirka, you are a star, full of peace, wisdom, fun and great knowledge of yoga. I loved the challenging morning yoga and truly enjoyed the relaxing one in the afternoon. Michael, you gave me lot of idea for cooking fantastic food, great quality, variety, originality and presentation.I loved it all. The place is heaven but most of all, I loved your company and kind dealing with all our needs. We will be back!

    For a long time I've been dreaming of going to a yoga retreat in Spain with my daughters. Finally, this dream has come true. I'm very hapy to have chosen La Rojane for this. This place is wonderful, Mirka's yoga is so strong and challenging, Michel's food always a positive surprise. So thank you both for this creation!

  • Maja

    Yoga Holiday Paradiso

    Thank you so much for a lovely week at your wonderful eagle nest. It has been great to feel the body getting stronger with your careful instructions Mirka. I have dreamed of going to a yoga retreat for 15 years, and staying at La Rejana more than fulfilled my dreams. Michael, I am so looking forward to that recipe book you said you will never write. Your food is just delicious. Let me know when it's out and I will order 10 of them and spread them evenly over Sweden. Best regards and hope to see you there again.

  • Kate

    Thank you both - and Max and Lola - for an amazing week. It exceeded my expectations which were already high, in so many ways. Mirka, your teaching is exceptional, in my experience - such accurate and helpful directions and inspiring demonstrations. YOu have me enough challenge and just the right amount of kindness too. I learned a lot - not least that I can do much more than I thought!

    Michael, thank you for the wonderful meals and wine - you kept surprising me with so many delicious dishes. Thanks too to your patience and helpfulness around my driving to and from La Rejana - in the end, I got it!

    Thank you both for your warmth and kindness in making my visit so memorable.

  • Kate

    Yoga Holiday Paradiso

    I wanted to write a heartfelt thank you-and to Michael and Fuchsia-for such a fantastic week. I can't really put into words how perfect it was! I found the yoga classes challenging, interesting and informative- and I hope that I can remember lots of principles that you taught us. I think that our group felt a huge warmth from you all. I really enjoyed Michael's fabulous cooking with all the lovely local produce. I felt totally looked after and relaxed in the beautiful surroundings, and loved the trips out to Nerja and Frigiliana. Max and Lola made it even more special. I do hope that Max is calming down! and that you are all having a great week resting. I hope to be able to return to La Rejana, and will definitely recommend the retreat to my friends. Many thanks again. All the best.

    Thank you for a wonderful weekend retreat at your beautiful home. It has been perfect for winding down from busy life and I have learnt a lot of information about yoga which I

    will take back with me. The welcome, food and tips for local activities added to the stay and I hope to see you again soon.

  • Susanna Switzerland

    Yoga Holiday Paradiso

    Thank you very very much for the warm hospitality, the interesting conversations, the huge and deep knowledge about yoga (I don't mean only the Asanas) and the exact guidance during the postures. Michael, your cooking was again excellent and you really know how to create an atmosphere were the guests feel more like friends than customers. All in all, my second time in La Rejana was again relaxing, beautiful, inspiring. A place for body, mind and soul! I will come back again. Until then, keep going and take care. Muchas gracias. Thank you very much.

  • Olivia

    Thank you both for the most fabulous retreat you really are the host and hostess that is very hard to find these days. Not having done yoga before, we were made to feel very at ease. The food and flavors fantastic. Fabulous knowledge of the area and such generosity we felt very much at home. Loved taking Max for a walk. What a mixture of weather, sun, rain, thunder and lightning quite spectacular. Lets home we can return one day. The views are spectacular and we would never tire of them.

    Yoga Holiday Paradiso

    These are wonderful photos. Thanks for taking them, organizing them and sending them through so promptly. Great memories indeed. Thank you for everything. I didn't get a chance to write in your testimonial book. If its not too late, here's a little testimonial for you and Michael. Feel free to use, as you wish, in marketing or for your website.

    I've been on many retreats over the last 16 years, in various locations, of varying size and cost, and with yoga teachers of different teaching traditions. Yoga Holiday Paradiso ranks as one of the best I've experienced. The venue, the hosts, the teaching and most importantly the energy and vibe were all spot on. Thank you Mirka and Michael for an unforgettable holiday that will stay in my heart. Hope to return next year, Inshallah. Best wishes to you both and hope you're getting some peace and restorative time now.

  • Megan

    Thank you so much for everything you have done for us this week and for an amazing holiday. I have truly had an amazingly peaceful and rested week. Mirka, your teaching is phenomenal and more than I could have hoped for. I have learned so much and feel I have improved my awareness, technique and especially my posture, in the space of just one week. I cannot thank you enough for your patience, knowledge and attention to detail. I will certainly miss your style of teaching.

    Michael and Fuchsia, thank you so much for all the wonderful meals you have provided us with, and for being so generous and accommodating. Thank you for our trips into the town and to the beach! Everything from the company, the yoga, the setting, the food and the trips were fantastic! I will miss you all including Max and Lola! Hopefully I will be able to visit again. P.S. Thank you for being kind and making my birthday so very special. Lots of love.

    I'm sure you've heart it all before-- it has been such a wonderful experience sharing this week with you all. Mirka -- the yoga has been fantastic with the contrast between the morning and evening sessions. You have given me the confidence to venture out of my 'comfort zone' with deeper awareness. I have learned such a lot! Michael and Fushia, the food has been inspiring--I have enjoyed every meal. Thank you all for your generous hospitality--you've been fabulous hosts! Love to Max and Lola. Best wishes.

  • Kate United Kingdom

    The most amazing, relaxing week! Warmth of the sun exceeded by the warmth of Mirka, Michael, Fuchsia (and my fellow yogis-in-training). Not to forget the Ying and Yang of energy--Max and Lola! I will write more coherently when I return to the U.K. Thank you so much. Hope to be back.

    This place is magic. Michael and Mirka are fantastic. Good service, amazing healthy food, excellent yoga. The rooms are nice and clean. It feels like home. Beautiful view!Loved the morning yoga on the terrace and it was nice having evening yoga indoors. We recommend this place for everyone all ages / beginners and yogis. Thanks a million for having us.

  • Katie

    I have loved every minute of my retreat. As a beginner, it has provided me with the inspiration. I needed to continue my studies at home. I plan to come back in the autumn and hopefully Mirka will be able to see some improvement.Michael, the food was superb! Thank you for both of you guys and smiles.

  • Sally

    Yoga Holiday Paradiso

    Thank you for a wonderful week, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and returned to UK feeling relaxed and energized. Mirka, you are a wonderful teacher and really encouraged us to push ourselves. I am still practicing and can hear your instructions, albeit possibly not the right things in the right place but I am persevering. Michael, thank you for looking after us so well and your wonderful cooking, it was really appreciated.I have recommended La Rejana to my friends and colleagues and hope to see you again. Thank you for the photos and very best wishes.

  • Viv United Kingdom

    Yoga Holiday Paradiso website

    Experiencing yoga every day with Mirka was such a beneficial experience. I feel stretched and open in my body and by the end of the week I was able to experience limits in postures that I hadnt achieved before. I like the snippets of Mirkas sense of humour as she teaches.

  • Marlena Norway

    Yoga Holiday Paradiso website

    Mirka is a good and patient yoga teacher, helping each and everyone to go further into their yoga practice at their own pace. I have definitely improved my postures and increased my body awareness.

  • Lise United Kingdom

    Yoga Holiday Paradiso website

    And of course the yoga was fabulous even after 2 prior retreats elsewhere and 2 years of weekly Iyengar classes I learned so much about my body and the postures and general peaceful consciousness. Thank you Mirka!

  • Lale Germany

    Yoga Holiday Paradiso website

    I have deep respect for Mirkas sound knowledge of yoga, all the many postures we did, how to get deeper in and most out of it, and how they affect the body.

  • Rosna United Kingdom

    Yoga Holiday Paradiso website

    A wonderful retreat! Feeling relaxed and rejuvenated with much help from Mirka, Michael and Malaga. Mirka embodied the values of yoga both physically and philosophically. Her classes are challenging yet rewarding I am so much more aware of and able to engage with the possibilities of yoga as a result. This has been complemented throughout by Michaels cooking of fresh and local produce which inspires vegetarian and healthy recipes to take back home. Mirka and Michael make a great team. Their hospitality has made us all feel so welcome and part of their home. And all this against the backdrop of a beautiful yoga centre and picturesque surroundings. All in all, an inspiring week of love, health and happiness.

  • Partho United Kingdom

    Yoga Holiday Paradiso website

    Thank you for a wonderful week here at La Rejana! The Yoga was exactly what I needed to escape the stress of daily life. Mirka was thorough, attentive, and meticulous in her teaching and attention to detail. The food has been exceptional all week, and it has been a real luxury to be treated to such fine food and waited on hand and foot. I was made to feel very welcome by Michael and Mirka, and enjoyed the company of Max and Lola.

  • Bridget United Kingdom

    Yoga Holiday Paradiso website

    I have enjoyed a wonderful few days at La Rejana and regret I am leaving before the week has finished! I have really benefited from yoga classes here which are of such a high standard and now I realized I want to go into yoga more seriously but it will be difficult to find such a good practitioner as Mirka here at La Rejana. I would definitely like to come again for a week or more. Fantastic food! Thank you!
