To Lena, Estella & the rest of the lovely crew

“Namaste at home”, is what we might have said if someone asked us to go to a share Yoga class. But after this retreat our manipura’s open and our Ananata’s starts to shine at the beginning of a new class.
We really loved our time here. The classes were educative, insightfull and a lot of fun. The way of teaching was super appealing and original!
The food was amazing (of course) and we absolutely loved the house.
We wish you all the luck in the world and hope you’ll teach, inspire and connect with many people to come!

Singing mantras was such a wonderfull experience for me and very emotional as well.

Hopefully I will see you again in the future (with my son or daughter ;))

To come here without really knowing what to expect…
I have learned soooo much about my self, life, balance, friendship, not to judge…and finally find more balance into my life.
You all sweet girls, have learned me to open my heart, show my self more love and Im also scared of what the real life back home gonna be.
Although, I know I have graved really much and I’m totally gonna look on the world though different eyes.
So…Thank you, Namasté, I will always be very very grateful for this week with you all.

Lots of love,

Michaella Treslow Kinberg (Norway)

Dear Lena, Estela & Esther and all the others

Words cannot describe how blesse I feel to have met you and all the other girls.
How gratefull I am for this wonderfull experience.
I feel like I have been in the “bubble” for a week with lots of love, Yoga, understanding, positive energy, laughs ans so much more.
I was touched by the good vibe in our group and the special and emotional moments we shared.
Thank you for everything and not to forget the wonderfull food! And I have learned a lot more about Yoga really means. I now know that I did the “fitness Yoga” at home.
Now I even feel more balanced… I really don’t want to go… I will miss this place and this vibes.
Bit scared to confront everything back home… but I trust myself to be able to handle it.
Thank you do this wonderfull experience I memory!!!

With love,

Margje Milder (Netherlands)

Dearest Lena, Estela & Esther,

Thank you all, from the bottom of my Thymus, for this wonderfull journey:

I am leaving the house today with a lot of belives that the future will be brighter after this experience.
It is hard to put word in the feeling but I feel “Feliz” , like the cat :)

Liesbeth van den Berg (Netherlands)

Dear Lena and Estela and the others here!

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the love I’ve received from you and all others at Sunset Mountain!
It was overwhelming and I take it deep into my heart back to Holland.
My experience here was more than I had hoped for.
Gracias por todo!
Namasté, will your hearts shine till eternity.
Lots of love,

Natasha van der Werf (Netherlands)

Lena, Estela and all the crazy latinas

Latino crew, you guys are incredible!
It’s hard for me to put in words what happened in the past few days – in a way I think I can’t describe it really because words will be like a cage, too limited to convey how much love, harmony, compassion and beauty I felt in this magical place.
I will take a lot of me – that time that I heard the biggest laughter in the world and I thought 1000 people were laughing at the same time but really it was just you 4 and it just made me feel happy knowing how loud that can be.
But lots of other things too – like to be very careful during tantric sex cause you never know what happens to your lower back!
Thanks for everythingI know you habe done for me and everything I will find out during my journey.
Keep on shinning ladies!

Martha Rossi (Italy)

PS: Oh! And the food! The food!!! Adum! Xxx

Dear Lena, Estela & Edina and team,

Thank you so much for your beautiful radiant presence, for all the love, joy and laughing.
You have created something so special here and I am so grateful I feel trully transformed and I am going back to a new life!
I think this will stay with me forever and I look forward to coming back.
Love and light,

Dawn Griffiths (England)

Dearest Lena, Estela, Edina and crew,

“ How do you delicious, delectable, divine..
How do you say ..gorgeous… delight…”.

Some words from this groovy funky 90’s song to say it was such a wonderfull moment here in Ibiza Sunset Mountain.
I came to have some Yoga and relaxing moment with my sweet Magali. I found so much collective yogis energy and so many sensations.
But above all you Lena brought me during this week and at the end of this week to another dimension full of clear thoughts, brightness and love.
Big kisses to you, Estela and every nice people I’ve lived here.
Many thanks for this.
Obrigada! See you!

Your knowledge, your personality, your teachings, your team of people working with you, it’s just one beautiful authentic energy that you can feel in everything, everyday…
In one week I learned, felt and experienced everything I needed to see and I can bring it home abd in my practice, everyday, until the next retreat I hope I can join soon.
I’ll definitely come back.
If all Yoga teachers could bring what you do in their practice, the world would become a better place.
Namasté. Love,

Iris van Hull (Netherlands)

Querida Lena, Estela y las chicas alegres de Sana Seeds,

La semana pasada que he vivido con vosotras ha sido n placer verdadero.
He experimentado tantas cosas que no puedo explicar… experiencias nuevas fisicamente, mentalmente y espiritualmente.
Se nota de verdad que lo que estáis haciendo lo hacéis con todo el corazón (no con todo el Thymus:). La última sesión de Yoga ha sido increíble…también la presentación del hombre de las mariposas… todo salió del fondo del corazón.
Seguid exactamente así…Intento llevar lo más posible conmigo e integrarlo en mi vida allá en Alemania.

Mil besos de Sabrina
PS: A Edina: Querida tía que me enseñaste a sonreír. Te admiro de verdad! Tu alegría, tu gracia…tan equilibrada te veo.
Muchísimas gracias por haber cuidado de mí. Sigo pensando en ti…sonriendo!

Sabrina Bechtle(Germany)
