The retreat was way above my expectations. Ayurveda lectures were very informative, consultation enlightening, meals are superb, written information excellent. Desy’s instruction and background knowledge on yoga poses were supreme and her caring, spiritual manner is wonderful. Spa treatments – divine. All the staff at Oneworld Retreats was very helpful. The retreat located in a beautiful setting.

A wonderful experience! I did think there would be more older woman on this retreat but the young girls embraced us as we got to know them! The whole experience was amazing. The setting is beautiful. The little things and attention to detail was exceptional.
