Just returned from the most beautiful and relaxing retreat with the Yoga Wellness Company in Sicily. The venue was absolute paradise: an exquisite and spacious traditional Sicilian villa with abundant gardens with roses in every colour – it felt like a dream – certainly a world apart from normality. Jen is an excellent yoga teacher with an expert eye for differentiating the class to suit every individual’s needs. She offered a range of alternatives for every pose, meaning that everyone was able to work at their own pace, whether they sought a challenge or desired to take it easy. There was a range of abilities within the class from novices like me to people who had been on many different yoga retreats who commented on how favourably the Yoga Wellness Company compared with others – Jen catered fantastically for the whole range. She was also exceedingly attentive in her instruction, always careful to check that we were aligned correctly. Her abilities in her yoga practice are inspirational – she is a joy to watch – and her encouraging and personable manner is instantly warm and calming. The delicious food throughout the retreat was cooked from fresh each day by the lovely Jem who provided an excellent balance between nutritious and indulgent. The food was beautifully presented; all guests were unanimously extremely complimentary about the catering. The dishes were unfailingly cooked to perfection and it was lovely to have such vibrant discussions around the dinner table with Jen and the other guests who were all fantastic company. I also enjoyed our lovely trip and meal out to Ortygia, which was arranged by the Company – the city is beautiful and rich with history and it was a fantastic opportunity to steep ourselves in Sicilian culture. I honestly could not recommend the Yoga Wellness Company, and their Sicily retreat, more highly – my only regret is that it’s over! Thank you so much for the most wonderful retreat, Jen and Jem – I’ll certainly be back when I can!
Rarely have I felt so energised, relaxed and happy as I did after experiencing your wonderful retreat in Sicily. The yoga was exhilarating, the food absolutely delicious and the villa was breathtaking. The yoga, so professionally and calmly led by Jen, was by far the best I have experienced, and I always felt that she helped everyone individually in their practice. Meals were nutritious, beautifully prepared by Jem, and yet seemed indulgent, just what one needs on a holiday. I would fully recommend a Yoga Wellness retreat and hope that you feel as refreshed as I did on my return home, it is an experience I would not hesitate to repeat.
Wonderfully attentive hosts. Jemima and Jennifer are absolutely charming. Thank you so much for organising the retreat in Sicily at the beautiful and very special old winery in Viagrande. What a wonderful find, this is a very special place with stunning gardens and pool. I had a great time. The retreat was professionally run throughout the 5 days – I wish it was longer – 7 days!! Everyone was lovely, the food was delightful and the whole event was fantastic. Jennifer’s teaching is high quality, first class. I thoroughly enjoyed the yoga but also appreciated the interesting conversations over dinner that filled the evenings. It was brilliant.Thank you very much!
As a first time yoga retreater with about a years experience of yoga classes the Corfu yoga retreat was perfect for me. Our group consisted of mainly single travellers with varying yoga experience. Jennifer led the morning & afternoon practice perfectly to accommodate us all with alternatives suggestions to every pose. Jemima provided healthy & plentiful meals for us all which were without exception delicious. The villa was absolutely stunning & there was plenty of time to read by the pool pool , wander into the town or go for a swim in the sea. Our week was enhanced by meeting a lovely, supportive group of women who we met at the airport at the beginning of the week as yoga attendees & left as great friends. I would 100% recommend this company for a well rounded first time yoga retreat experience.
High quality yoga, delicious healthy food in a beautiful setting. A perfect escape!
Absolutely brilliant experience- top top yoga and wonderful location! Came home rested, stronger and positive. I will 100% be booking again and again! Thank you!
Jennifer was a graceful host and spectacular yoga teacher. I’ve never experienced yoga like it and for someone not overly a yogi, I really got into the practice and felt the benefits. The food by Harriet Emily was glorious & Austria and our Lodge was just stunning. I would definitely recommend and will be back again at some point in the near future. Thank you
The Sorrento retreat was absolutely fantastic. We really enjoyed Jen’s professional and personalised style of teaching and we were made to feel at ease every day, whilst still making improvements to our practise. The villa was in a gorgeous setting overlooking the Island of Capri and the Bay of Naples, you couldn’t pick a more picturesque spot! I felt the week was really well balanced with yoga (roughly 4 hours a day – 2 morning, 2 evening) and free time and we enjoyed visiting Positano & Sorrento on a couple of the afternoons. The food was lovely with a variety of vegetarian / fish dishes and some vegan options too. Finally, it was a pleasure meeting a great group of ladies to spend the week with. I wholly recommend The Yoga Wellness retreats and I hope to see Jen and Jem on a future retreat.
I absolutely loved the Amalfi Yoga Retreat – the yacht ride to Capri is a must! The retreat was the perfect mix of activities and relaxation. Jennifer was beyond helpful in organizing anything we needed. I’d definitely come back for another retreat with Jennifer!
As a first timer, and far from experienced yogini, I was made to feel welcome as soon as I arrived! The yoga sessions were great and balanced all abilities – everyone was very enthusiastic about them. Jennifer is a brilliant teacher. Jemima a fantastic cook. As well as being lovely people!And the setting and the accommodation were fab. I’d definitely recommend it to everyone as well as recommending to myself another one!
I attended the retreat in Sorrento in October this year. I had the most incredible time and Jennifer our instructor was amazing. One of the best experiences I have ever done and will definitely book another!
Our trip to Corfu was everything I had hoped for and honestly more. The Villa was just beautiful with views that were amazing from every aspect. The Villa was large enough to find your own place for reading or contemplation, yet had a central meeting place to mingle when ever we wanted to. Jennifer is an amazing instructor who took into account any limitations guests might have and gave alternative postures to all. Jemima is a wonderful chef who fed us delicious food with seasoning that was perfect, and we had many choices. It was a quick walk to the town and beach. We were fortunate enough to make what I believe will be life long friends. My fellow yoga mates were just wonderful. Thank you Jen and Jem for making our trip perfect.
Our trip to Sorrento was the perfect yoga retreat. The villa was in a stunning location with such fantastic views, such a lovely group of ladies attending and we were made so welcome by Jen and Jemima. Jen is an absolutely amazing yoga teacher – very inspirational. Jemima fed us some delicious food too. I would highly recommend this yoga company and will definitely be booking a retreat with them again very soon.
