I just wanted to say a huge thank you for such a fabulous few days on your retreat. It was very beneficial and extremely relaxing.
Thank you again for a wonderful experience on your yoga retreat. It was clear that you had put a great deal of thought into the various classes and needs of the clients attending and everyone felt very nurtured. The venue, location and food were particularly successful and we were so fortunate with beautiful weather!
We had a lovely time, thank you. It was good to meet such nice people.
For us it was extra fun that we could bring the dog as well.
I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of my stay at Florence House and most of all your amazing classes. I came away on the last day feeling much relaxed, at peace and feeling a stronger connection with my body.
The setting was perfect as was the weather, food etc.
Thank you for organising this special occasion which was a real treat. 
It was absolutely lovely and much appreciated.  The venue was great, the yoga excellent and the weather superb. Thanks so much for all your hard work in making it so successful.
I enjoyed the few days at the Retreat very much, and found it the ideal length, with the perfect balance of group yoga and private time. The location, facilities and food were wonderful, augmented by the almost miraculous weather.
I had such a great time.
I really enjoy yoga and have been into fast paced yoga however the classes with you have now taught me to take time and care on my positions. You have given me the knowledge to better my poses and I am now going to do a lot more of that so when I do fast paced classes I will look after my body better and gain more out of my yoga time.
I also enjoyed meeting so many new people and hearing about their walks of life (and also realising that we live in a very small world).
I hope to join you on a yoga journey again soon.  
I enjoyed and learned so much during the retreat. For me, everything was perfect. The flexible structure let me have freedom to choose what I wanted to do. The food was lovely and the accommodation was superb. The location was perfect too, I love how it was near the sea.
We really had a wonderful time! The setting was idyllic, and we enjoyed meeting other yogi students. Thank you again.
