“I feel blissful and inspired to increase my practice across all yogic endeavours. I’m relaxed through to my deepest core and am able to be more in tune with who I am and who I wish to be!”
“As always, beautiful, magical and spiritual. At the end it’s a mix of tiredness and happiness. The spirit of India in Somers!”
“Content, restored, I loved the retreat, connecting with old friends and the sense of community of like-minded people thinking about the way I practice and live my life, also NOT thinking about my life but having time to be in the present and look inwards.”
“Fantastic. Relaxed. Calm. A little sore. Happy. The people were all amazing and the not-for-profit charitable intention is incredible. THANK YOU.”
“I have nothing to complain about because this is like the best weekend I’ve ever had!!! I had a wonderful time during the retreat, met some great teachers and like-minded people. I will definitely come back for the next retreat!!!”
“Beautiful people, very open to sharing their kindness, knowledge and love! I loved all the classes and food and fun activities in the evenings and really appreciated the no technology vibe and observing silence after 10pm.”
“It was my first time at Yogafest and I loved it. It was one of the most well organised considerate events I have been to and I work in events. I don’t have any big feedback to give on how the event can be improved. Brilliant teachers, wonderful people and a generous kind and lovely environment to spend time in. Thank you!!”
