Lovely Lena, Esther & all the staff,

What a stay! My first “real” Yoga experience and first week from home alone.
But what a warm and welcoming place you have here.
I really needed a place to feel warm, loved and relaxed to think some
things over but especially to be in contact with my inner self.
And you together with Virginia and Sebastian helped me enormously to allow
me to do so. It was all so right for me.
I sled some tears but had a lot of laughter as well!!
Love you, this place and the island!
I´ll be back!


Amber van Tilburg (The Netherlands)


What an amazing place you´v created here!
It´s a real paradise.
For me everything felt in place this week.
All the Yoga experiences and the Ayurveda, the chakra´s, the pranayama´s
exercise makes more sense now!
I lost myself a bit in the Rat Race of daily life with a new business and
2 small children but here I found myself back!
What a lovely people you selected around you! Esther, Edina, Ali,
Sebastian, Virginia..they all have their unique talent and all of them
helped me to find myself again in complete relaxation.
Muchas gracias!

precious gift. This is a good place, and you do good things.
Bless you.
