Comments

Lila...managed to create a real feeling of family in such a short time. The setting was gorgeous, the yoga and meditation just perfect, and I really enjoyed the time to be still and quiet, as well as have a chance to meet some lovely people. In between the yoga and various activities, we had some lovely walks and lots of interesting ideas came up.

The venue was beautiful and everyone was so warm and welcoming to me. Lila our instructor was incredible, so warm and patient and there was no pressure. Also Justine's Lomi massage was the best massage I've ever had!!! So, if you are hesitant about booking a retreat, please don't wait I'm sure you will love every minute as much as I did.

Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend. It was exactly what the doctor ordered! I live a fairly hectic life so to take a whole weekend for myself to relax, unwind and get a new sense of perspective was much needed and it felt so good. The best part is that I have carried that sense of peace, awareness and control that we blossomed over the weekend back home to the 'real world'. Life is good, I'm heading in the right direction, after clearing space at the retreat I can see that so clearly now.

Lila, I love, I love, I love your classes

I really enjoyed it all and found the space and quiet I needed! Doing so much yoga was great! You are both so gifted at facilitating ...so nurturing and calm. A joy!
I started Lila's classes about 4 years ago when I took her beginners course. She's become my favourite yoga teacher as her classes offer much more than just the physical aspect of the yoga postures. Her strong connection with her teachings brings a deep sense of well-being to her classes and I can totally recommend them to anyone with an interest in yoga.
