    What a fantastic retreat! Rebecca led the classes with great knowledge and the variety of yoga, meditation, yoga Nidra and Pilates was fabulous. For me, the yoga Nidra and meditation were the highlight as well as the beautiful surroundings and staff. The peacefulness and energy at the retreat, the amazing spa treatments
    Gail, Australia

    The yoga, Pilates and meditation was a wonderful way to deepen my practice. I could not think of a more divine place to have spent with my husband on yoga/Pilates retreat. This place certainly stimulated the five senses with surroundings, which have been developed for a deeply harmonious experience. All the senses are catered for and indulged...
