Yoga

Yoga is an ancient art and a way of living in harmony and balance. In its essence, yoga is a communion with the breath of life that moves though each of us - a returning to our wholeness. Through deep wisdom and dedicated practice, the teachings of yoga aim to harmoniously unify body, mind, and consciousness in such a way that the body becomes an instrument for treading the path of self awareness.

Above all, yoga invites us to discover the depths of beauty and light that reside within each of us. To create harmony within ourselves and in our lives requires a clean and clear body, mind, and heart. Cleansing and detoxification is a vital part of our health and wellbeing, as we become what we eat - physically, mentally and emotionally.

Why detox?

Over time, our bodies can accumulate toxins, acidity, and sluggishness in the organs and systems. This toxic build up can lead to illnesses, pain, disease, and clouds our clarity and energetic luminosity. Our bodies can become toxic in many ways: through our food and drink, the air we breathe, what we put on our skin; and by the way we think.

The process of a well managed cleansing program helps to release and eliminate unwanted toxins in a safe way. Detox helps the body to heal itself as nature intended; cleansing and repairing your beautiful body, helping to restore health, a sense of wellness and the true natural radiance of your inner being.

The retreats are held at a selection of venues in stunning locations on the West Coast of Scotland.

High vibrational organic raw foods and smoothies, with the option of taking a juice fast only. All the food will be organic and local where possible, high antioxidant, alkalizing, and high vibrational. Adjustments can be made for those who wish to fast - guidance and support will be provided.

Individual massage and bodywork sessions, as well as optional detox optimization package of bowel cleanse / castor oil pack / enema kits are available, and can be booked in advance.

  • Review by Wendy

    "A space filled with love that allows you to connect back with where you are from, creating time and room for reconnecting with your body, heart and nature, realizing what stops you from doing this more often so you can go back to the “real world” feeling a bit stronger and equipped to live a more fulfilling life more in tune with Mother Earth. I simply love the yoga – it is intense in a way that I have not found anywhere else. The time in nature was very special as well."

  • Review by Nicole

    "It is almost impossible to separate a ‘favorite part’ as the beauty of the retreat was its weave into an integrated whole; the magnificent land that held us; the deep gentle physical work with our bodies; the cleansing nourishment; the reflections within our circle of women; the prayer and remembering of the sacredness of life. "

    "In the miasma of forgetting, they are deeply precious reminders of who we are on this earth, what is our calling, our work, our joy. This retreat was a jewel in the thread in a journey of returning to sanity and sacredness. Held in an awesome landscape of mountains, lakes, rocks and forests, we are held and guided as we cleanse ourselves with deeply nourishing food; stretch into and release the blockages held in body through deep and gentle yoga; receive reflections on our patterns and pains as we sit in circle; learn to give thanks and revere and honour the life we hold and the life that surrounds us. In great gratitude!"

  • Review by Amelia

    "I feel that this way of teaching and understanding myself and my place in the world is deeply wise. I would lie to learn more. Life is short and these opportunities to grow and heal are precious.I was looking for a retreat that would shift and move things for me, energetically and spiritually as well as one that would take me away from the tug of daily commitments and life. I wanted to retreat from my normal life and have some space to learn. "

    "During the week I had a profound experience of dropping into my heart. This is Daniela’s gift - she held the space most eloquently. I felt that Daniela held the Space throughout the week in Yoga, throughout meals, during walks and circle with a gentle and profound dedication that allowed me and others to open up to a new possibility of living. One that is connected to nature and to our own hearts. She also offered us teachings in Shamanism that felt accessible and “do-able”. Mid-retreat I was shown an aspect of myself that is darker and needs much practice to fully disengage from. This was a shocking and ultimately illuminating experience."

    "Returning home I have continued with my gratitude practice and feel a deeper connection to Nature, enjoying my walks in the woods with my Dog in a deeper, happier Way. I have become softer with myself and my family. I have continued to have morning smoothie and mostly Vegetarian (not strict) and no grains. It feels great - i’m lighter and need less sleep. I have embraced some of the Yoga Practices and incorporated them into my Practice and Teaching."

    "I am grateful for the work that Daniela put into serving us on the retreat. I feel this is a connection I want to maintain and strengthen. With love and gratitude for your presence in my life. Thank You."

    "To find stillness and peace in order move on in unbalanced times. To be grateful and give back more. There is no limit to giving love and thanks.vI loved the silent walks, because it was practice as well as deep relaxation at the same time."

  • Review by Veerle

    "The indigenous messages and the connection with Mother Earth came to me with a very strong awakening call. The Mother Spirit who is sustaining us here for millions of life and who is in danger. Of course this message isn’t new for me, but the practices to connect and listen to Mother Earth opened to me, like I heard a new message, got access to a higher wisdom that need to be spread in to the world. I come from the Yoga, Buddhism tradition where the teachings are merely focussed on training of the mind and connecting with the Higher Divine, whereas with the message from the indigenous elder brothers, I felt a new dimension of connecting with the real earth and nature around us, outside the mind and the Higher Divine, but beneath us and around us. A more spiritual ecological insight, and a call to action with it.I felt that Daniela and the group we made were incredibly in tune with what we were there for and with higher spirits. The land, the location, the teachings of Daniela and wisdom of all the other students created a retreat with such a profound healing power, both physically, as emotionally, spiritually and karmic. I gained access to insights I wasn’t able to get on my own and learned so much more about my own karmic circles and experiences in this and past lives, how they are all inter-connected and how I am part and responsible in it. I felt a rebirth/opening happening into another dimension or spiritual realm, something I am deeply grateful for."

  • Review by Mez

    "For me the retreat started the week before as I connected to my intention and what I wanted to clear and be shown during the retreat. On retreat I received so much clarity and wisdom, from Daniela, the land and the other retreatees. It was challenging at times as the cleanse really allowed me to see what needed to be looked at and how much I was choosing not to “See” in my daily life. I received so much support and guidance that has carried me into a place of deep surrender when I came home and has allowed me to start working on myself in a way that I would not have been able to unless I had attended this retreat. It has been truly life changing for me and has directed me into a more aligned lighter way of looking at myself and the use of my energy in daily life."

  • Review by Alexia

    "I love yoga but don’t practice often, so it was rewarding to feel my body and mind opening as the days progressed. It taught me how to breathe through tension, how to release into the practice and how to focus my mind on the present while doing so. It was a wonderful reminder of how to meditate. I loved your guidance through the poses, your explanations of how fresh blood was flowing through the muscles and I did achieve a meditative state in one particular session which hasn’t happened in ages! "

    "I also enjoyed the nutritional aspect, eating clean vegan foods. Learning about your recipes (I’m a tiger nut milk convert, it’s the most delicious thing ever and yes, I also use a stocking) and our lovely walks through the stunning countryside. The medicine walk was a special day I’ve talked a lot about since I’ve been back. I still get tense when I think about how slowly I had to walk but am grateful for the lessons it taught me.As part of the experience I came to realise what I connected to the most, and that was the yoga, meditation and any discussions we had about nutrition and mental outlook. You’re one of the best yoga teachers I have ever had and it’s usually when I felt the most connected to you and the group. "

    "I am as a person interested in spiritual practices and feel I have retained a deeper sense of spirituality and appreciation for Nature on the back of my experience, just need to carve out my own means of practicing it."

    "I’m thankful for the experience, for meeting you and all the wonderful people in our group. It has benefited me on so many levels and taught me many lessons. The card I got on the last day in particular has stuck with me, that change comes about slowly and I need to be patient. So I’ve decided to focus on food first before moving onto yoga as part of my daily practice. Thanks Daniela for all of the lessons, but mostly for the one of patience."

    "Dear Daniela, I want to really thank you for all of your kindness and teachings at the retreat, I am extremely grateful.

    "I found Aluna Healing at a very difficult time and I feel with all my heart that without it I would not be in the place that I am today. It has helped me re-connect to myself and to the Earth through many beautiful yoga classes as well as healing retreats and weekends which have never failed to inspire me and transform me into the best version of myself that I can be. I owe an awful lot of gratitude for the soul work I have received from Aluna Healing and it will always remain a big part of me."

  • Review by Catherine

    "I arrived at 'Replenishing the soul' retreat at a very difficult time of my life - I had just completed a year of breast cancer treatment; then my partner left me. I felt rather emotionally broken and was in desperate need of a reflective sanctuary. As Daniella opened the door to a beautiful cottage in Dartmoor I was greeted by her immediate warmth. I went into what I would later refer to as the 'womb room' to find a group of women lying on yoga mats, wrapped in blankets, by candle light with soothing Amina music playing - then Daniela led us in meditation. My tears began to fall in that room as I felt myself begin to be held by the nurturing calm I had been craving. "

    ""

    "The sharing circles with the other women, each who were exploring the juncture of their lives that had brought them there, were deeply transformative for me. I feel so privileged to have been able to share my story there which helped me reflect on unhelpful ingrained patterns of behaviour. Daniella’s unflinching gaze saw into each of us and reflected back what we needed to see inside ourselves through our discussions. The writing tasks exploring what was causing disharmony in our lives were also very powerful. "

    ""

    "The detox food was delicious consisting of a smoothie for breakfast, soup & salad for lunch, then a juice for dinner which left me feeling cleansed and filled with nutrition. Sharing meals together felt very uniting. Doing yoga every morning felt like I was infusing life back into my body that had gone through so many medical procedures that year. As a beginner in yoga I was led and helped by Daniela who was sensitive and gentle in her teaching. The exercise took me into my body, away from my repetitive thoughts which was very much needed. "

    ""

    "The walks through Dartmoor, especially the silent 'medicine walk' where we saw the stone circles enabled a deep connection with nature. Daniella taught me to see nature in a new way which felt deeply healing and grounding. I feel connection still to the women and that time at the retreat when I look up at the sun."

    ""

    "I smile to myself remembering as we all stood together, each morning, looking up at the sky or walking down to the little stream to welcome the new day in together. The retreat was life changing – I am still moved by it and all that I learnt there. I am so grateful that at such a challenging time of my life I found such a healing sanctuary with such caring women."

    "Again, thank you so much for letting me join the retreat and I cannot emphasize enough at how a profound effect your work has had on me. Thank you for being there, for answering my questions and for letting me learn from you. I feel so many positive effects, and have so much more clarity (which I so craved), that I can hardly believe that it is happening and on an occasion worry that I'll wake up one day and will feel like I used to. A friend of mine is saying that I have inspired her to try out going living raw too and told her family about it and her family is also on board. This is how your beautiful work is flowing through the world! Please do not ever stop."

    "I have recently returned from a week's retreat in the Scottish Highlands with Daniela and eight other wonderful women. The experience was a challenge for me on many levels, but the beauty and peace of the place and the strong, wise and heartfelt guidance from Daniela combined to provide a fertile space for such deep work to be done. Daniela is deeply insightful, sensitive and strong and her connection to Love, God, the Mother (however we choose to name It) means that she held the space that was needed; such a precious gift for which I'm truly grateful."

    "Daniela works deeply on many levels beyond the physical, and although this can sometimes be quite painful for me - where I hold a lot of tension, Daniela's insights into my emotional blocks - stored in the body - have challenged and encouraged me to look deeper and more clearly at myself in a way that is completely loving and non-judgmental, allowing me to move on gracefully into my peace, truth, whatever is going on around me in this life journey."

Your unique, quiet approach creates a safe environment that nurtures inner growth and self-belief, gently taking me by the hand and leading me back on my pathway again. Thank you."

  • Review by Motoko

    "I must say the retreat has changed my life. I have been practicing yoga every day since the Easter retreat. It is like a new-born mind. The weekend was really amazing! Your yoga techniques are very good and how you teach and correct positions for us were very helpful and useful. But what I was most inspired from you was the spiritual aspect. I kept thinking who I am and what I would want to achieve in my life during the weekend. I have very busy life style so I didn't really think about it so instead I was just working and working like a machine for money."

    ""

    "After a terrible breakup with my ex, I decided come to the retreat but probably that was the best thing that has happened to me. I remember lots of things you said but one of my favourite was- strong body makes strong mind. It's very true but I didn't realize until you said it. I understand now I don't need expensive shoes, bags, clothes and jewellery. I should be confident without those because those are just materials which can't belong to me forever. All I want to have now is strong body and mind therefore I am practicing every day. I absolutely loved your cooking, especially salads all were amazing. Thank you so much"

    "Thank you Daniela, for another profound and life transforming week. Each time I work with you, there is a deepening and revealing of more and more intricate layers of myself that you always seem to find a way to lovingly (but unwaveringly) confront and challenge me with. I am finding more and more that I can witness myself in an honest and humble way, and am feeling a strength and connection with the great mother growing day by day. Thank you for being such an inspiration."

    "To have a healing session with Ali and Daniela is a opportunity on this earth not to be missed, it has changed my life for ever and still does every time I enter the light of their auras, these special light beings are here with a mission of re-uniting heaven and earth, especially inside our own selves."

  • Review by David S.

    "It was with immense grace that the universe led me to work with Ali on my own healing path. Meeting this beautiful soul was like being reacquainted with an aspect of myself that I did not have access to on a regular basis, for this is the gift of his work, to guide one back to their true self. I am indebted to this man for the protected and pure space that he has held for me so that deep inner transformation can take place. I have found it a rare discovery to come across a healer that has such a grasp of the spiritual dimension and yet is able to ground here in this reality also. As a result the work with Ali has always felt rooted, connected and deeply practical. I cannot finish these words without mentioning his music. In fact, words will only fail to do justice! Ali is a master medicinal musician! His music IS medicine. Healing, transformative and perfect for relaxation, rejuvenation and journeying. I feel so blessed to have access to his healing music at the touch of a button! I cannot recommend Ali highly enough. Thank you for your integrity, honesty, insight and love."

    "I have had many massages in my life that were momentarily pleasant and enjoyable. Daniela's are extraordinary, unforgettable and I have a feeling that they have long-lasting effects. Daniela herself is a gentle, grounded, peaceful spirit, exuding love and well being, her handshake is a mere whisper, so it's an incredible surprise to receive such a deep, strong, powerful massage from her. This is both emotional and physical and undoubtedly works on other energy levels too. It feels transformative and as if she is drawing strength from the universe. I recommend her highly to all my family and friends."

She works deeply on many levels beyond the Physical, and although this can sometimes be quite painful for me - where I hold a lot of tension, Daniela's insights into my emotional blocks - stored in the body have challenged and encouraged me to look deeper and more clearly at myself in a way that is completely loving and non judgmental, allowing me to move on gracefully into my Peace, my Truth, whatever is going on around me in this Life Journey."

    "Hey guys :) It's Paul here, I just wanted to email you guys and tell you how grateful I am that people like you exist, you have changed my life. The help you gave me has helped the people I know and the clients I help in ways I never before imagined. I am in tune with my emotions and life force again, maybe even for the first time. I have experienced deeper and more profound realizations as time has past and made sense of my emotional surroundings in a way I never before thought possible.Your guidance and spiritual leadership in my journey was beautiful in every way possible, I feel an affinity with everything and a connection with the earth and I owe that to you. I didn't know what to expect even though I read up on the healing ceremony for days and made the necessary preparations in my diet. Now I believe I understand the true nature of the message I was given and I want to allow myself to be shown the way again, I was so close to experiencing things beyond my comprehension that it made me scared that I would shed my humanity to the point it would be irreversible. I know this is not true and the sense of trust I have for the your space and the plant medicine is the kind that a son has for his parents. I have the deepest sense of love and kindness for you both and when ever I think of the time I spent with everyone and you both my heart shivers with joy and excitement and a warm glow embraces my whole being. I cannot thank you enough."

  • Review by Daniel from Edinburgh, Scotland

    "The retreat was among the most powerful and transformative experiences of my life. It's hard to describe the feeling you get when the shaman breaks the quiet of the forest night with the first breathy whispers of the ikaros. It's probably impossible to convey the power of the journey the ayahuasca takes you on, the staggering vistas and inky depths one can voyage to. Anima's music echoes the beauty and mystery of the journey, but to know it you must experience it. What I can say is how continually impressed I have been with Ali's approach to the medicine; light and gentle yet sincere and utterly dedicated. The retreat reflected this; there were times to laugh, times to go off and swim in the lagoon and enjoy the beauty of the jungle; and time outside time, spaces of silence in which to go deep with the medicine in its ancient home, facing its teachings with courage and discipline. Being on retreat is demanding and rewarding; it is true spiritual work. Throughout the time we spent I felt supported and appreciated, and emerged feeling reborn. I would recommend the retreat to anyone who feels both the call and the commitment to it."

  • Review by Ingrid

    "Summarising two years of one-to-one lessons with Daniela is a difficult task. Each one is different, fitted to the questions and concerns I’m facing or to an issue that Daniela knows is meaningful to me. Yoga, meditation and energy work are the foundations of our time together, but these practices are interspersed with discussion, prayer, song, humour or simply learning to listen again. Some lessons have been painful and there have been many tears; others have been filled with laughter and a true celebration of life. Through them all I am aware of Daniela’s infinitely loving, strong, wise and non-judgmental support. She in turn reminds me that we are both in the presence of a far greater teacher. She challenges me constantly and slowly I'm peeling back the layers of ego, learnt behavior and fear. I come away from each lesson with a deeper understanding of myself, a stronger commitment to the Mother and a life focused on service and love, and more ideas of what’s possible. This is not an easy journey, but I continue to gather from Daniela the tools I need to develop emotional and physical strength that I never thought I would have."

  • Review by Shelley Sishton

    "I have been privileged to share a personal journey of deep transformation with Ali in a one to one shamanic work. His sensitive awareness guided me through some intensely painful personal shadows to fully appreciate the lightness and joy of being alive. A feeling which has never left me and has influenced my life and work in ways (almost!) beyond words. Daniela’s graceful, flowing yoga is a sensory experience in itself, connecting mind, soul and body, as is her healing touch through her massage therapies and intuitive sound healing. Coming together as Anima, Ali Calderwood and Daniela Broder present a unique and powerful combination of sacred gifts. Their music stirs people from mental slumber and awakens them to deep soul knowing, touching new levels of consciousness. Anima’s soundscapes are deeply healing, emotionally profound and transformative in ways which are both subtle yet quantum in effect. I often find myself playing their music directly onto client’s bodies to shake up physical blockages and mental holding patterns, to release respiratory problems and open the heart to new octaves."

Your wisdom and knowledge challenges and guides in a way that gives me an opportunity to get back in touch with my inner self. With every day life and world troubles it is necessary to be trusting and understanding rather than judgemental and cynical.

This has been highlighted beyond my expectations after this weekend. Having reached the age of 55 I am now embarking on a new career doing what I should have been doing over 30 years ago! The retreat has given me the confidence and understanding to know what is right for me rather than to hide behind excuses. Thank you."

    "Dear Daniela, I am imagining you in your tiny home in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands and I send you much love and gratitudes. I have some lovely memories of this retreat and feel it was just what I needed at this time moving into a new era of my life. I'm so glad to have made some new friends too. It feels important to me to keep up the work and weave it into my life as well as keeping up these new connections."

    "I arrived to the space late and grieving with a heavy heart and a lot of tension in my neck and back. At first I felt out of place with your energy and that of the circle and I wondered whether I would stay for the duration. As I was struggling to do the yoga poses due to physical discomfort you kindly offered that I could do what felt right for my body. As the tears flowed, I began to feel subtle, gentle muscle releases, fleeting moments of beauty, something magical, warm, welcoming and holding from the circle. It was a supportive place for me to be with my grief and I remember you saying during our Skype conversation that we come as we are and we work with that."

    "I was so grateful to be lead by you that first morning in the front garden in blessing Mother Nature, giving our gratitude for the birds, earth and sky, breathing in the sunlight and out our vital gifts to the world. I knew we were doing some deep work on the retreat, that stuff was moving and shifting on various levels for me, although I wasn't always totally conscious of what. I found the bandas, pranayama and breath of fire to be very powerful and helped me focus my mind."

    "During the medicine walk I felt much reverence for nature, there was such beauty in the stillness of the water on the lake and the fairy-like woodlands covered in moss and lichen. When we all felt we'd lost the direction, you strode on boldly and on our return to the lake it was as though the moon lead the way back too. Asking the question “what is my soul purpose?” I had a sense of believing and trusting in myself and being open to opportunities and people/places who/where I am drawn rather than working it out in my head – this being my medicine."

    "Thank you Daniela for this beautiful retreat. Thank you for all these aspects lovingly interwoven.

    "I can not recommend this massage or Daniela enough. The amazing thing about Daniela is her intuitive nature that just knows what's going on in my body/soul without me saying a word. Daniela focuses on the issue very purposefully, while still giving attention to my whole body. I see Daniela for Altai Massage every five weeks as a major component of my basic health care. She can bring about healing, she can go deep, and Daniela's insights challenge me to look deeply and help to rebalance/find harmony from within."

    "As a therapist myself I have received many massages in the past but none quite like the Altai Massage that Daniela practises. Having a massage with Daniela is like going on a voyage of discovery of the body, words can't quite describe it and you really need to experience it for yourself for its unique healing properties on all levels. Daniela has wonderful warm, healing hands and is one of those lovely people that magically happen to cross your path and you never forget. Also, after 3 treatments my hot flushes/sweats have ceased completely which is AMAZING!"

    "Thank you again for the amazing massage experience. As I said, I found it truly deep both within my physical & spiritual body. Since then, I've felt like I'm fully awake! Once the physical body caught up with the rest of me & the pain subsided, I have felt totally amazing - like walking on air! My brain is operating on full power again."

    "I arrived at 'Replenishing the soul' retreat at a very difficult time of my life - I had just completed a year of breast cancer treatment; then my partner left me. I felt rather emotionally broken and was in desperate need of a reflective sanctuary. As Daniella opened the door to a beautiful cottage in Dartmoor I was greeted by her immediate warmth. I went into what I would later refer to as the 'womb room' to find a group of women lying on yoga mats, wrapped in blankets, by candle light with soothing Amina music playing - then Daniela led us in meditation. My tears began to fall in that room as I felt myself begin to be held by the nurturing calm I had been craving.The sharing circles with the other women, each who were exploring the juncture of their lives that had brought them there, were deeply transformative for me. I feel so privileged to have been able to share my story there which helped me reflect on unhelpful ingrained patterns of behaviour. Daniella’s unflinching gaze saw into each of us and reflected back what we needed to see inside ourselves through our discussions. The writing tasks exploring what was causing disharmony in our lives were also very powerful. The detox food was delicious consisting of a smoothie for breakfast, soup & salad for lunch, then a juice for dinner which left me feeling cleansed and filled with nutrition. Sharing meals together felt very uniting. Doing yoga every morning felt like I was infusing life back into my body that had gone through so many medical procedures that year. As a beginner in yoga I was led and helped by Daniela who was sensitive and gentle in her teaching. The exercise took me into my body, away from my repetitive thoughts which was very much needed. The walks through Dartmoor, especially the silent 'medicine walk' where we saw the stone circles enabled a deep connection with nature. Daniella taught me to see nature in a new way which felt deeply healing and grounding. I feel connection still to the women and that time at the retreat when I look up at the sun. I smile to myself remembering as we all stood together, each morning, looking up at the sky or walking down to the little stream to welcome the new day in together. The retreat was life changing – I am still moved by it and all that I learnt there. I am so grateful that at such a challenging time of my life I found such a healing sanctuary with such caring women."

    "I must say the yoga retreat changed my life. I am obsessed about yoga now. I have been practicing yoga everyday since the yoga weekend on Easter. It is like a new-born mind. The yoga weekend was really amazing. Of course your yoga techniques are very good and how you teach and correct positions for us were very helpful and useful. However, what I was most inspired from you was the spiritual aspect. After a terrible breakup with my ex, I decided to come to the yoga weekend but probably that was the best thing that has happened to me. I remember lots of things you said but one of my favorite was "strong body makes strong mind". It's very true but I didn't realize until you said it. All I want to have now is strong body and mind therefore I am practicing everyday. I joined yoga exercising class for after work and weekends. I was taught by about 10 different teachers but to be honest, none of them are like you. I absolutely loved your cooking, especially salads were all amazing. Thank you so much."

    "Daniela's style of teaching yoga is gentle and intuitive. Her classes have taught me to listen within, allowing the breath of life to move me and move through me. Exploring through asana, breath work, readings, meditation, the deep stillness, and silence of the soul, Daniela shares her wealth of personal experience and expertise in her weekly classes and workshops."

    "Again, thank you so much for letting me join the retreat and I cannot emphasize enough at how a profound effect your work has had on me. Thank you for being there, for answering my questions, and for letting me learn from you. I feel so many positive effects and have so much more clarity. A friend of mine is saying that I have inspired her to try out going living raw too and told her family about it. Her family is also on board. This is how your beautiful work is flowing through the world. Please do not ever stop."

    "I have recently returned from a week retreat in the Scottish Highlands with Daniela and eight other wonderful women. The experience was a challenge for me on many levels, but the beauty and peace of the place and the strong, wise, and heartfelt guidance from Daniela combined to provide a fertile space for such deep work to be done. Daniela is deeply insightful, sensitive, and strong and her connection to love, God, and the Mother (however we choose to name It) means that she held the space that was needed. It's such a precious gift for which I'm truly grateful."

    "My personal experience of the weekend was very fulfilling. I enjoyed learning more in depth not only the yoga from a physical perspective but the meditation was a great interest to me. As part of my daily principals, meditation plays a great part in my well-being and balance with life. Watching the DVD on Aluna and what it means really did help to bring together the practices we had been a part of. It is with an open mind and willingness that I came on this weekend and I have taken away new skills that I can bring into my daily life. I would highly recommend this weekend to my friends and feel it a great privilege to have been a part of it. God bless!"

    "Daniela works deeply on many levels beyond the physical and although this can sometimes be quite painful for me, where I hold a lot of tension, Daniela's insights into my emotional blocks which are stored in the body have challenged and encouraged me to look deeper and more clearly at myself in a way that is completely loving and non-judgmental, allowing me to move on gracefully into my peace, truth, and whatever is going on around me in this life journey."

    "The crystal bowl of sound healing session was an experience I will never forget. It lifted me to a resonance that I could only ever dream of reaching. I knew it was there but to experience it, first hand was phenomenal and followed by the last yoga session where we touched such a unique and special energy."
