from Great Britain, October 2017
Loved the location and the setting for the accommodation. The relaxation schedule and rest was just what I needed. The venue was outstanding and I cannot fault the accommodation. I liked the food menu and the detox element of the retreat. However, I do wish we could have had some communication about what the health benefits were from what we were eating. There were a few people that had never eaten vegan before and were unaware that this is what the food would be, and myself being new to the vegan options it would have been nice to go through more of a plan for the week and how to maintain this after going home. We expected Ali to eat with us during mealtimes, and when she disappeared and left us to our own devices it was a bit uneasy. I'd recommend for Ali to eat with the guests moving forward. I think people would like that - This would also let people ask any questions they may have and Ali would get a real feel for what people were feeling about the retreat and make changes where necessary.

"Great introduction to retreats"
I booked the retreat as it met everything I was looking for: yoga, walks, vegan food, art therapy and a good location. The yoga I particularly enjoyed as it was more traditional and holistic; I was just used to by achieving vasious poses. The location was fantastic and the walks were also energetic and invigorating.

when I first started yoga I was a little unsure if it was going to be a bit of me, but I must say Ali is a true inspiration, she made me feel totally relaxed whilst vitalised all at the same time. I kid you not I leave a whole new person after a magical yoga session with Ali xx
