Testimonials from past Retreats: :)
"A must have for the mind and the body in this fast world. Great yoga, delicious food, single accommodation was great for me, just space to be. I felt nurtured and enveloped in beautiful energy. Thanks to Hazel and her team for giving so much, to make it so special. With gratitude."
"I attended Hazels yoga retreat this year. It was one of the most relaxing and recharging weekends I had in 2016. On arrival from the welcome treat in your room to the grounds leading up to the yoga hall sprinkled in tealights, I immediately knew this would be a special weekend. I actually thought I'd be hungry so brought a bag of snacks with me but i was 100% mistaken. All I did was eat delicious food, nap and do lots of wonderful yoga.Besides being a wonderful yoga teacher Hazels love and attention to detail makes her retreat a wonderful place to be. I cant wait for the next one!"
"I am really looking forward to the retreat at the end of January. If it is anything like last year's it will be such a treat! It was such an escape from every day life. From the minute I arrived on the Friday to the minute I left on the Sunday eve everything was heavenly. The smoothies, the mock cocktails the meals. They were exceptional. It was five star treatment. The yoga sessions were so great. I loved being shut away from reality and being able to make the most of the weekend.
It really is a fantastic treat to be able to experience it again this coming January in a new luxurious venue. Well done again on a fantastic job you made of it last year. I know the next one will be just as good if not better. "
