"My yoga retreat"

Everything about my retreat was wonderful. Adam knows his stuff and is a great yoga and self massage teacher. Fiona's vegan cookery was excellent. Great place to get great yoga instruction if you are a beginner or push yourself. Thank you. X

"The new kind of paradise?"

An extraordinary place high in the mountains, deep in the woods, simpy beautiful.

Everything there was earthbound, balanced and comfortable with a fresh hippie feel all around. The food was fantastic, the company inspiring and delightful . Fiona the yoga teacher was very attentive and perfect for an absolute beginner like me. Had massage by Aoife the last day, felt like reborn.

All considered best five days for ages, learned meaningful things with yoga and meditation, got to know new friends and had my bodyclock rewound by 40 years.

Thank you all.

Thank you so much for this amazing retreat experience. To be on a retreat with other women and talk about women's health, herbs, food and nutrition has been so nice. I have learned so much. The food has been so tasty and inspiring. The yoga classes were the right balance of challenging and relaxing. It was great to learn so much at the same time as having a holiday. I will definitely be back.

This women's yoga and herbal medicine retreat was just what I was looking for. I arrived exhausted and run down from busy city life and I left feeling revived. Yoga with Fiona, herb workshops with Sara, an amazing massage with Aoife all made me feel great. I didn't want to leave. Highly recommend this retreat. Thank you.
