TESTIMONIALS 2011


Dear Lena, Stefan and Ela

What can I say to describe the feelings that I had here? Feeling the divine human being that I am and that you are.

I am grateful to have experienced this very special retreat for the mind, body and soul. Lena’s lessons were inspiring, challenging and gave me peace of mind, stability. I admire her mind, sense of humor and strength.

Stefan’s cooking was direct from heaven, what a great cordial warm person he is!

Thanks to Ela for the inspiring conversations. Thanks also Nathalie and Caroline for the best time we have with each other really making between us a Karmic bonding.

Dear Lena & Stefan,

Thank you so much for the wonderful time at Sunset Mountain Yoga retreat.

Lena, with your guidance and encouragement my Yoga practice has improved so much!

Thank you Stefan for your tireless hospitality, culinary-creations, amazing pizzas and super juices. I will never look to beetroot the same way again!

You are a perfect partnership and deserve all the success I am sure that your retreat will bring.

I will be returning to the UK with a full heart, “buzzing chakras”, and many great memories.

Dear Lena & Stefan,

Before this retreat I thought I knew quiet a bit of Yoga and vegetarian cooking. You have touched me so much that that I am now aware that I know so few and would love to learn more.

But, you also have shown that you do this retreat with Love and with humor.

The most eye opening for me was the Nidra Yoga sessions, and Pizzas on Stefan’s style (what you can do with pizza!)

Dear Lena & Stefan,

Thank you very much for a wonderful week at the perfect Sunset (sorry… “Beetroot”) Mountain retreat.

I really learned a lot and returned home with a full heart. Hari Om.

Dear Lena & Stefan,

Great experience in a very nice and beautiful place. Yoga with a stunning view. The classes were clear and went from one step to another so also for me easy to follow. It was very inspiring and I went home very relaxed.

Also the pool, the great food, and Lena’s entertainment were wonderful. I will never forget the sunrise yoga session because of the beauty of it and because I was so afraid to sit on the edge! The trips in the old car were very nice and I had some really nice massages. (No screaming for me)

Thanks for everything, I had a great holiday!

Dear Lena, Stefan & Sheila

Thanks for a lovely week in this beautiful place and for you TLC (tender loving care!). It was nice to experience another style of Yoga, the wonderful alignment in postures and be challenged to do a bit of “cirque du solei”! I loved the personal atmosphere, please don’t loose it, and keep up this wonderful spirit!

Dear Lena & Stefan,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart (anatha chakra / thymus humorous factor) for an absolute beautiful week, where everything was simply perfect. It was an amazing healing place with unique warmth that I will remember very fondly for the next year. Stefan, your cooking book is hotly anticipated, wow! I have fallen in love with beetroot big time! Lena, your humor, inner joy, beauty, endless effort and love are a huge inspiration! I have learned so much about Yoga, life, love, laughter and “puppies” from you!

Good bless you and your wonderful team: Sheila, Laura and not forgetting, of course the “torture team”: Miguel, Domenica and Rumi. who have given me a new pain threshold!

Stefan thanks for the little Britain clips.

You are truly magical, thank you, thank you, thank you! Sunset Mountain bliss, eat, play and laugh forever! All my love

Dear Lena & Stefan,

Thanks for this fantastic experience. I haven’t felt like this since… birth?

Thanks for making us aware of the exhausting phase we force us in every day, and to point out this definitely not the path to follow. I hope I will continue living at a livable rhythm, healthier, more aware, and more loving, of course!

All the best to you all and thanks for this great week.

Cara Lena, la vita ci ha fatto incontrare. Non posso dimenticare il tuo modo di spiegare lo Yoga e la philosofia che lo accompagna, spiegata da te in modo cosi semplice, diretto, molto facile da capire…

Sei una donna molto carina, una vera artista nel condurre la tua vita, influenzando tuti in modo positivo…

Grazie de tutto, con te ho capito qualche cosa in più di questa pratica che amo tanto.

Dear sweet lively Lena

Thank you for this amazing week. Everything was in perfect balance, the food, the classes and this place feels truly like heaven/paradise for me.

The most amazing thing I experienced was the meditation during the sunrise. I felt so connected with nature, with the universe and opened up a lot of energy and awareness. I really don’t want to leave.

For the first time in a long time I know what I want do and where to go. I will see and give you a big hug in my heart every time I think back or feel enlightened.

Mariska Berkhout (Holland)

Dear Lena & Stefan,

Thank you so much for this amazing week. Before I came here I was really low in energy and out of balance. I didn’t know how bad it was until I came here. I had to go through some tough emotions and frustrations with myself but it has given me unbelievable transformation. I feel relaxed, calm and ready to go further with the stream of life without frustrations! Thank you so much, not only for the yoga lessons but also for the theory classes, the wonderful food and beautiful sunrise and nature you showed us! Lots of love.

Keep inspiring people, it is a real gift!

I didn’t know what to expect when I came here, but with the warm welcome you feel home right away. I loved the classes, each of them we’re a wonderful experience. And also the food was so good every day. I really enjoyed staying here, soaking up the sun to refill the battery for the next winter. I wish you all the best with the last 2 weeks of retreats. Good luck with rebuilding / organizing the new retreat house, I am looking forward to the photos J. Hope to see you again in Amsterdam or Ibiza; I learned a lot this week

Sophie van Dongen (Holland)

September 2011


Dear Stefan & Lena,

This one week of sunshine, warmth, yoga sessions and best vegetarian food in the world felt so much longer and more than just seven days. It was my first yoga retreat and I surely want to come back to this island and to the both of you. I am going home being really relaxed – although I now always will have the bloodhound gang in mind when I see a fire!

Take care & Namaste

Maren Juggenburth (Germany)

September


It felt very special to stay in Sunset Mountain! A warm welcome from Stefan on the airport, healthy, but most of all tasty food of Laura and Yvonne, intense relaxation with very special yoga sessions from Lena. I learned much more about yoga. And I learned to scream / “ breath through it” in the massages from Dominque.  I feel more relaxed and hope to hold this feeling in Holland. You all have my recommendation. Thanks for everything! Take care of yourself and good luck in the new retreat! I hope to see you again…

With love

Astrid Tjao (Holland)

Dear Lena & Stefan,

I am not a big writer or somebody of many words, but I am somebody of deeds.

And coming back here next spring is the deed to show my happiness for having been taught & stayed here with you.

Dear Lena & Stefan,

Thank you for being a home and for your love and care!

I cherish this place so much, it is a heaven of quiet and peace and I find your spirits such an inspiration. The yoga classes are wonderful, so is the food – thank you Yolanda- and I feel like home with a family here.

Lots of love and see you again

Dear Lena, Stefan, Laura & Yolanda,

When I came here I never had taken a yoga lesson in my life, and I know I will do sun salutations for the rest of my life! I had a great time meeting you all and the girls in the group. I feel very blessed to have been able to experience all the beauty of Ibiza, the wonderful yoga, the yummy food and the inner peace!

This was such a great group, all lovely people!  I had a great time with everybody.

Hasta siempre!

Dear Lena & Stefan,

From the day that Stefan found me on Facebook, as old friends do I kept on thinking about the pictures I saw on his page and your website. It became a dream to come and to do a retreat. I checked when the last retreat of the season would be and I had only one day to make up my mind. That same afternoon I had my ticket; my dream has come true. Lena, you are such a wise and wonderful teacher. I will practice what you taught me for the rest of my life. You are also the greatest storyteller. We have had some good laughs, it was also great to see my old friend Stefan back, and you are a lucky man to have found Lena. Good luck with your preparations on the new house. I already know it’s going to be beautiful!

I love you both and you can be sure I am going to be back.

Love, Love, Kisses, Amore

Dear Lena & Stefan,

It was lovely and very insightful. My body likes yoga a lot. I knew that of course but needed the reminder. Both Dominique and Miguel opened up my true self plus made sure that I finally will start to take care of my poor body. Lot’s of bodywork, hahaha. Jolanda & Laura fed it wonderfully,

And Lena…no words to describe

Arigato, thanks, muito obrigada, dank je

Dear Lena, Stefan, Laura and Jolanda,

Not knowing what to expect, it was a great experience. The yoga lessons as well as the food were very good and I will advice other people to come here.

I learned about my body and myself and I got a lot of useful advices.

Lena is a super teacher and she has great humor, which is important

Thank you for everything and I hope to come back once.

Lots of love

Muchas gracias

Grazie Lena,

Per questa bella settimana. Ero incerta su I resultati, ma tu con la tua simpatia e semplicità gli hai fatto scomparire, soffiando su quelle nuvole che offuscavano il mio spirito. Porterò nel cuore I tuoi insegnamenti, ma non ti prometto di non mangiare una bella fiorentina da 500 gr….

Ramazzai impressa nella mia mente e cercherò di ritrovare il mio equilibrio con I tuoi insegnamenti. Ci rivedremo nella tua magnifica casa nuova. Un abbraccio forte, forte
