Read what our happy yogis have to say...
I just want to let people know how much of a B-E-A-UTIFUL weekend I had at the 'Awakening Spring Yoga Retreat' in the Lake District I had a completely serene experience the whole time. Set in the most breathtaking landscapes, our home was an old stone farmhouse which is found through a gap in a hedge and across a bridge over mini waterfalls! Whilst in our little hideaway not a single bother from the outside world was allowed to penetrate the bliss we felt... I have never slept so well. Through the early morning Qigong classes with Ivan I learnt a lot about myself and about the powers I hold within. I learnt how harnessing the earth's energy can put you in touch with yourself and everything beyond yourself which feels absolutely amazing. I really enjoyed the yoga classes which were set in the most perfect atmosphere. Even as a beginner in yoga I had no trouble learning under the teaching of the tranquil Amber, as she addressed us softly, gently and fluently, guiding us through each movement. The evening yoga mediation sessions were so peaceful that some of my fellow retreaters fell asleep during the class 💖 I also very much enjoyed learning about natural, healthy nutrition in the raw food workshops, aswel as having fun whilst we made yummy snacks. By the end of the weekend I felt quite bonded to everyone in the group despite us having been strangers... What I have gained from this experience cannot be measured, nor can the love I felt from Amber and Ivan in sharing their enlightening way of life! I've definitely grown closer to my own true self and have excelled on my spiritual journey. I can't recommend their retreats enough and will definitely be attending again! Peace and Love To All
Just returned from a week's retreat in Menorca with Amber and Ivan. What a wonderful life changing experience
I had never been on any kind of retreat before, although I had read some reviews from last year's Menorca retreat. The photos were enticing enough.
So I booked myself and one other on the retreat, not knowing who was even going to come with me, my partner Nick, who had never done yoga, or my 19 year old son Milo who had a bit of time on his hands. In the end it was me and Milo. I took him to a few yoga classes in Sevenoaks to give him a taste..he loved it.
So, we arrived quite late on the first night..and settled into our accommodation.
The next morning the sessions began. First warming up with Ivan then yoga with Amber..most of us had done a bit of yoga before and Amber seemed to intuitively know how far each of us could go, she eased us all gently into poses, stretched us physically and mentally building our stamina daily opening our minds and our hearts.
I think we all gained so much from the experience. I particularly loved the fresh air, the breathing and chanting, the mindfulness walks, I felt so relaxed I was inspired to stop smoking. Having been an on and off smoker for 13 years, I thought it would be difficult, two weeks later and I still have not had a cigarette. I feel younger and more invigorated than ever and I seem to have much more energy all round.
We have continued to attend our yoga class here. We can do a lot more than we could before. There is so much truth in the saying "use it or lose it" and also "it is never too late".
Thank you Amber and Ivan..you have given me a new lease of life and Milo some inspiration for his future, even if it is just to become a Pirate and live in a cave..Namaste..xx
Amber is a brilliant teacher. The atmosphere she creates is so relaxing. I always leave her classes feeling rejuvenated, completely relaxed, and with a calm, peaceful mind. Also she really helps you to work to your full potential with every pose so you get a thorough deep stretch. I suffer with lower back pain and tension in my neck and shoulders and a general state of stress - I realise this because of how calm I feel after her classes! And it's so relieving to stretch out all my tense areas. I can't recommend her enough.
Finally found the time to share with you all what a WONDERFUL YOGA RETREAT I had in MENORCA, SPAIN in November. Amber provided us all with a well balanced week of yoga and nutrition in a beautiful Vila. We started every day with Qi gong & Yoga after sun rise revealing the beautiful surroundings before providing us with a delicious healthy breakfast and the most amazing juices I would never have dreamed of to set us up for the well thought out mindfulness walks through stunning scenery.
After treating us to delightfully delicious vegetarian lunches we had afternoons to spend at the local beach or walk to secluded coves for snorkelling or reading before returning for our evening yoga. Ivans exquisite evening meals were always a delight on the pallet and Ambers evening meditation relaxed us for a good nights sleep. It was a well thought out week, a wonderfully funny bunch of people who I miss & I sincerely did not want to leave, but I came away with renewed vigour & dietary intentions 🙂
thank you Amber & Ivan. Peace & Love xxx
I had an amazing experience at Ambers yoga retreat in Menorca.
The combination of Yoga, Qi gong, healthy food, walks
and swimming all set in beautiful surroundings was the ideal break away to find some peace and harmony.
Much love to Amber and Ivan for being such good hosts, i wish you all the best in your venture.
Thank you for the time shared with you both.
A truly enlightening experience made all the more special by the personal care and attention shown by our exceptional hosts.......Amber and Ivan. We began our days with Qi-gong explained and led so eloquently by Ivan. Once we were 'warmed up', energised and full of positive chi Amber would then follow on with yoga practice. With her wealth of experience she is able to guide each participant to reach their full potential and we all noticeably improved during the course of the week. The reward for our efforts was to then sit down together and enjoy a superb healthy and nutritious breakfast. This really set us up for the day during which we could take guided mindfulness walks in pretty countryside often with sea views, or 'do our own thing' until sunset yoga. Weather permitting this would take place poolside or on the roof terrace, sometimes with chanting and meditation. The next treat would be the wholesome tasty suppers created by Ivan and enjoyed by all.
Amber and Ivan have carefully considered the content, location and ambiance of their retreat which represents excellent value and the vital opportunity to explore oneself. Heartfelt thanks Amber and Ivan for a truly positive experience.
