What past guests have said
The “waves within” retreat was, for me, totally perfect. The location was stunning, the accommodation really comfortable and the food delicious. Shaini is a great yoga teacher, she has a really personalised approach to teaching, taking time to get to know everyone in the class. Her approach is perfect for beginners to yoga but also great for experienced yogis who may have learnt bad habits! Each session was just challenging enough without being too tiring. The combination of yoga and surf is great, it is so amazing to spend the day in the water and come back to a relaxing yoga session. To anyone who isn’t sure which yoga holiday to pick, pick this one….you won’t regret it!”. Anne, United Kingdom
”To everyone who loves yoga and surfing or wants to learn it, I can just recommend this retreat. Shaini is a very good yoga teacher who looks after everyone and takes care that no one is doing something wrong to the body. The yoga lessons are challenging in the morning, relaxing in the evening and we had a good time and laughed a lot. Surfing was fun too, the surf instructor picked us up and brought as back too and with the nice lunch package we where given everyday there is nothing to worry about. The food in general is really, really good. Fresh and seasonal, healthy, always something different, always delicious. The resort itself is a really beautiful place, the rooms are clean and modern and have very comfortable beds!! This was one of my best trips ever! If you need a time out and if you want some sun, nature, healthy food and meet great people from all over Europe – go there! .” Anke, Germany
