I loved the small group size and having 2 teachers, allowing for focus and improving my alignment, because now I see my postures are not the same as a trained eye!
The location, setting, teachers and other participants created the atmosphere of peace, reflection, self improvement and laughter.
I love your retreats Elena, and will always be on the lookout for more opportunities to join!
Thank you also to Maria, for your inspiration on how I can personally improve my alignment.
Thank you to both Elena and Maria for this extraordinary retreat! After my first retreat with Sparkling Yoga and coming this time on my own, I was not sure if I would gain the same results but I feel I have gained so much, taking thus tune and opportunity for myself to be in nature and move my body with yoga + hiking. This is such a unique destination and I feel lucky to have experienced the views and Italy vibes throughout our stay.
The unique combination of how well Elena + Maria work together is impressive!
Personally, I am a yoga beginner, and Maria’s ongoing hands-on assists throughout benefited me greatly. This experience motivated me to continue to invest more time into my yoga practice.
Thank you both!
Thank you so much Elena and Maria for this wonderful retreat!
I’m amazed at how much you can learn from just a four-day intensive retreat.
I’m taking a lot of advice and reflections with me back home for my continuous practice, and I look forward to seeing you soon for one of the longer retreats!
This has been a very special retreat. It was really wonderful to spend time with like-minded people in a beautiful and inspiring location with fantastic instructors.
I would absolutely come back here again and look forward to doing so!
Thank you Elena and Maria.
This is another perfect yoga + hiking retreat.
I did manage to be completely relaxed and take care of myself while challenging my practice. Again you managed to create a practice space that allows me to go further in my practice, out of my comfort zone. Thank yo!!
Keep up the good work, I will see you next year in Bali.
It was an amazing first experience of yoga.
You are a brilliant and patient teacher.
Great atmosphere in class and in the hotel.
The hike was beautiful.
Spa treatments and facilities + food and staff at the hotel have all been amazing.
Rooms are lovely!
Would be hard to find anything to improve on. Thank you!
Good combination of gentler + harder classes, pranayama practice + myofascial release.
Loved the hotel, very relaxed atmosphere.
Food was great though hard to “detox” with yummy desserts on offer 😉
Wonderful days spent on the mat in a beautiful location, being guided by a very knowledgeable + kind teacher.
Well rounded practice which brings you back to yourself.
Fantastic group with the opportunity to stay connected.
Perfect mix of different practices, detailed explanations beyond the “obvious”.
I enjoyed everything: yoga, hike, hotel, bed 🙂
Very nice hotel, very friendly staff, very good food, relaxed environment.
The meditations were very inspiring and pleasant.
Very clear explanations, very nice organisation, attention to details.
Elena is a natural yoga teacher and group facilitator!
So lucky to have joined this retreat.
Thank you for “holding my hand” and guiding me in this journey back to my yoga and to my body.
Many, many thanks!
The retreat is for me a break in everyday life, an adventure in beautiful nature and a place to focus deeply on the yoga practice and develop it.
Good company, great people, challenging exercises, amazing food and long hikes!
