Elena cultivated a beautiful mix of people in a stunningly beautiful countryside forest. The practice sessions were challenging while accommodating many different levels of ability, from beginners to fellow teachers. The retreat center was charming, accommodating, and respectful of our collective mindfulness. Elena’s ability to connect individually with each participant made this unlike any retreat to which I’ve ever been. Would go back in a heartbeat!
I enjoyed the peace and quiet. The yoga led by Elena was amazing. Best experience of my life. The good thing about the teacher was patience, motivation, willingness to explain and properly show how the postures are achieved. The planning and dedication is absolutely perfect. I could not fault it. Staff were amazing. Retreat was perfectly located. Food was nutritious and wholesome. Room was simple and perfect. Everything was perfect. I loved it so much that I will be back next year and I will even bring my friends. Elena is an angel – calming and wonderful.
Dear Elena and Ben. Thank you for a lovely retreat and for everything. You are two different beautiful persons who guided me through yoga positions in two different ways. I really liked that there was an opportunity to that. I learned how to used different positions in different parts of life. You’ve been guided with love, joy and simplicity. All good to you.
Both Elena and Ben are happy and humble and nice to be with. And teaching in a way that is easy to understand even when English is not my first language.
Elena, you are a joy to have as a teacher. I love the combination of yoga and your music. I liked that Ben was so attentive to everyones need, adjusting our postures along the way. Very friendly staff. AMAZING food. (Almost) makes me want to become a vegetarian. I loved the meditation sanctuary.
