"A very spiritual place to explore."

Immediately Edouard and Nissa were unbelievably welcoming and created a homely environment. They were kind, friendly and passionate, knowing exactly when to allow me time to reflect and rest and when to practice. They were flexible with the program to suit my needs and interests (including more meditation at my request as this is what I was most interested in). They were both incredibly knowledgeable in their fields and aware of being patient to ensure I understood new concepts such as the chakras which I hadn’t understood before. I feel they genuinely cared in my journey and experience and were just as excited as me when I saw progress. For those who have little experience with the reiki healing, this is a must. It’s well explained, kindly and carefully conducted and this created a healing atmosphere throughout.

I had a fantastic time in a very short period of just a few days. Nissa explained Thai culture and spiritualism to help me both enjoy the fantastic food (really special- street food had nothing on this!) and Thailand’s complex culture. Edouard was funny, kind and used great analogies to paint understanding- a great teacher. Thank you both for an excellent experience, I’d recommend this to anyone exploring spiritualism and balance.

"Hypnok Retreat. March 2018"

Edouard and Anissa were great hosts and I quickly felt like one of the family. As a beginner to yoga and meditation I felt the pace of the programme suited me very well and I feel I progressed with my practise. I felt very relaxed the whole time and I also gained a lot of knowledge and encouragement from Edouard. The other guests were like minded, lovely people. The food was great. Would definitely recommend it and will probably return.

"Clear your mind and refresh your body"

The entire experience was wonderful. Our hosts Nissa and Eduard were gracious, friendly and exceptional people. The other guests that were with us were pleasant and fun to meet as well as get to know. Be prepared to look deep inside yourself, spend time thinking about Chakra's and ways to get your mind and body on a path of positive thinking and goodness. Enjoy the view from the patio while stretching and doing yoga and breathing exercise's.

The meals are reason enough to come for the weekend. You are introduced to the wonderful world of exotic Thai cooking, made fresh with the most amazing ingredients. All this while being entertained by the family pets, the cat, and 2 friendly dogs, Mimi and Jacky. If you have a few days to relax and give yourself some time this retreat is a must. The rooms and sleeping as well as the home itself are very comfortable. I will be back.

"Can not recommend highly enough!"

As a woman travelling alone I am always on guard and have to be careful where I stay. Edouard made me feel at ease at once. I trusted him and he didn't let me down. I felt safe in the house and around Edouard.

The house itself is beautiful! Open spaces and gorgeous furniture. So much lovely art work and ornaments around the house that often have stories. My room was big and the bed was... wow. it was huge and SOOO comfertable! The balcony is wonderful and you can see real Thai families living out their days. It feels really homely because you can hear them talking and laughing in the background. It's a great authentic Thai experience to be in that area. The neighbours have dogs that bark when someone new comes but that only made me feel more secure.

There are two dogs and a cat that stay in the house too but Edouard made sure he knew I was comfertable with them before letting them around me.

The food was bought locally and there was a good mix of choices every meal. Edouard made sure I always had water and enough to eat.

The lessons and teachings themselves taught me a lot. We had some wonderful discussions and Edouard is great at explaining difficult subjects. He really opened my mind to things I never thought I would consider. He is very opened minded and understood that not everyone would agree with what he was teaching so I didn't feel pressured to agree all the time.

All round this was a truly unforgettable experience for me and I am already planning my return :)

"Excellent"

I would highly recommend this or any other retreat with Edouard and Nissa.

They are both passionate about the retreats they offer and the lifestyle.

They were extremely helpful and caring and nothing was too much trouble for them.

I felt as though I was a family member and not a paying guest.

The mix of classes and private time was idea, as I wanted a relaxing time to enjoy what the retreat had to offer.

"Brilliant experience "

What a lovely couple with such amazing knowledge to share. We liked everything! The morning yoga, meditation, teaching on crystals and food were highlights. Our rooms were large, comfortable and airy and the balcony was a perfect space. We leave feeling more knowledgeable, totally relaxed and with tips we can use in our day to day lives. Thank you so much and we hope to be back again soon! Xx

"Wonderful getting-away experience in the local village "

Nisa& Edouard are great individuals, which made me feel very comfortable in every seconds of staying in the house, also the nice couple who can impact on the relationship dilemma positively. The yoga class in the early morning after a glass of detox drink is just in the right time giving an awake touch/stretch for the day, followed by continental breakfast later. Meditation or rest is totally up to myself during the day, I had relaxed as much as my body&mind could. It's truly a priceless experience, hope to seeing them again!

"Blissful growing in spiritual lessons"

I loved the thoughtful accommodations, the fruitful discussions, the reiki, hypnosis and Crystal learning. I loved the couple who kindly guided us to a deeper level of understanding who we are. I enjoyed all their tips and sharing of resources. I loved the balcony and serenity.

This retreat was perfect for me. I've gained so much knowledge about the spiritual world.

Highly recommended for curious people and beginners in meditation.

Nisa and Edouard are kind and lovely. They have a lot of knowledge that they want to share.

I felt very relaxed and free to ask any question.

At first I was a little bit worried about the "snack instead of dinner"- but it was great! I felt way better than how I feel after my usual big and late dinner.

The bedroom was great. Big, clean, comfortable bed and crystals.

I highly recommend this retreat.

"Good for beginner"

For beginners this is a perfect way to start your spiritual journey. You will learn the basics of meditation, yoga and chakras.

"Nice weekend but not as much yoga and meditation as expected"

Edouard is a very nice guy who shared his knowledge about meditation and spiritual things with us during the weekend. The schedule contained theory as well as pratice (some yoga and guided meditations). It was very interesting and the content was easily explained by the teacher. There was a good choice of different Thai food so we could try a lot of new dishes and fruits.

"Merveilleux week-end détox à Bangkok"

Nisa et Edouard sont deux personnes merveilleuses: acceuillantes, ouvertes d'esprit, disponibles. En deux jours, nous avons eu le temps de parler et de pratiquer le yoga, la méditation, le reiki, le pouvoir des pierres etc.. Nous avons eu également pas mal de temps libre, ce qui laisse le temps de pratiquer tranquillement ou d'explorer les environs. La maison dans laquelle nous avons été acceulli est très agréable, les chambres sont grandes, très propres et tout est prévu pour que nous soyons confortablement installés.

Par ailleurs, Edouard et Nisa restent disponibles après le stage et nous ont recommandé des livres et liens vidéos/ audio.

Je recommande chaudement ce stage!

"Perfect eye opener"

Nissa and Edouard are passionate about what they do. They worked really hard to make our experience better than we expected.The moment we arrived, we filled up a form where we pointed out what we wanted to work on and we had a little chat about what the program would be like.

My husband is new to yoga. And this program was perfect to get the "party started". Every morning we had a beautiful yoga class before breakfast. And the poses where adapted to our level and to the parts of the body we wanted to work on the most. It was a great eye opener for many aspects of life that we ignored.

We learned a lot about the power of crystals and stones, about body types and what foods work the best for our types and many other fascinating topics. They are both very knowledgeable.

We also got Reiki sessions and hypnotherapy. Both were really nice and we got a lot out of it.

So much so that we decided to extend our stay and take a Reiki class.

We also loved the food and the accommodation. Simple and healthy.

But above all, we loved getting to know Nissa and Edouard. They are beautiful people!

Edouard and Nisa are not only excellent teachers but also wonderful hosts. This was our first retreat of any sort and they were very attentive and sensitive to our needs. I would definitely recommend a visit with these two amazing human beings.

"stage 3 jours yoga débutant et guérison au Reiki"

La gentillesse et l'accueil de Nissa et d'Edouard.

J'ai passé un moment très agréable et plein de sérénité chez eux. On se sent comme à la maison.

j'ai beaucoup aimé les repas en totale adéquation avec l'esprit de la retraite yoga. Nissa est une excellente cuisinière! La nourriture est très bonne et saine. Le lieu est très propre et ma chambre était spacieuse. Le lieu est un peu excentré par rapport au cente mais assez paisible même si nous sommes à Bangkok. Le jardin et la terrasse pour les cours du matin sont très agréable.

Les cours de yoga et méditions sont très bien expliqué et pratiqué avec beaucoup de bienveillance.

Les enseignements sur les chakras et l'initiation au Reiki sont passionnant et m'ont vraiment donné envie de poursuivre cette expérience.

Les séances de guérison Reiki pratiquées par Nissa et Edouard sont très apaisante et m'ont apporté beaucoup de bien et aidé à m'enlever tout mon stress.
