Retreat Testimonials

I was lucky enough to secure a slot in a recent yoga retreat hosted by Gandha in Tuscany – Sept 2020. What a fabulous week. The yoga practice of classes and workshops allowed us to experience a huge variety of poses, positions, flows, balancing, stretches and meditation. Lots of options to accomodate your own individual ability and experience.  Gandha’s sessions are well planned, progressive, professional, supportive and encouraging.
The retreat programme included sight seeing, free time, walking, wine and cheese tasting and great Tuscan food.  Relaxed, friendly and a great group of participants from all age groups and cultures.  The individual touches of welcome gift and dinner time chats are really special.
A relaxed, gracious and professional yoga practitioner – focusing on the participants getting the most out of their practice.
A real treat and fabulous experience.  Looking forward to the next retreat.

I attended the retreat in September 2020.  The venue was gorgeous, set in the midst of beautiful Tuscan countryside, with superb food and wine (yay!) and a tranquil atmosphere.  The attendees were great fun and it was refreshing to spend time with such an interesting group.  
Gandha had put together a varied programme of yoga, sightseeing and other treats, but we still had plenty time for relaxing by the pool and chatting with new-found friends in the group. 
I admit that I was a little nervous about the retreat beforehand as I didn’t know what to expect.  I’m a very casual yoga attendee and I wasn’t sure I would be able to handle several sessions every day.   I needn’t have worried.  Gandha made all the classes different, each offering something new, in a friendly and supportive environment.  I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed my time on the mat and the progress I made in the week.  I came home feeling so relaxed and rejuvenated.
I’ve already signed up for the next retreat and I can’t wait to return.

Thanks to one of the best yoga teacher I ever met, Gandha, because with her simplicity, her smile and her energy she put together a wonderful group for a retreat in one of the best place ever. 
A retreat made of light heartedness, sunrises, food (lots of food), silence walks, nature, horses and wine (lots of wine, again).

I am not sure where to start to tell you how wonderful Gandha’s yoga retreat was – from the incredible location tucked away in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, to the early morning walks through the olive groves, to the wonderful home cooked meals and great company of new friends and of course, most importantly the yoga! Thoughtful and strengthening, energising and restorative, Gandha knows just how to enhance the joy of each day with her yoga practices. I cannot wait to join her on another retreat!

My experience of the Yoga Retreat organised by Gandha in Italy September 2020 during a period when the world was in turmoil was an ideal experience that gave me the lasting happiness and energy to be in a world in distress and yet I was able remain positive and strong. 

The retreat was nothing short of incredible. It was extremely well organised in every detail including group activities between yoga session to wonderful Italian towns, a wine and olive oil tasting activity, through to the glorious environment and rustic accommodation with incredible food. 

This environment created fun and a group of very happy yoga participants.

The yoga sessions were the perfect blend of learning, relaxing and improving your yoga skill set. 

Just imagine the fabulous blend of time to explore Italy, great yoga and delicious food in a rustic rural setting.

Thank you so much Gandha for a wonderful experience and being such a mindful teacher.

Un’esperienza profonda: sono partita da sola e con poca esperienza di yoga in presenza e sono tornata con un ricco bagaglio di amicizie e conoscenze su una pratica che sempre piu’ fa parte della mia quotidianità’. Uno dei doni della vita nella splendida cornice della campagna toscana.
