What they say out of their experience in January 2020

We had a warm welcome and spent an intense week with well distributed activities. Yoga classes were possible even for beginners particularly as we were in a small group. We had very carefully prepared meals, met wonderful people of different nationalities and this allowed us to build up a nice energy. The outdoor meditation was a great time for a reconnection to our dear mother earth.

I also enjoyed the hiking day to discover the region of Chiang Mai.

The teachers gave us high quality methods and practices.

Danièle

Thank you, Miliza, for all your organization, I spent a very good time, met nice people, learned so many things during these few days, was eating healthy food, visiting nice places. The massage was so marvelous, I recommend to everyone to try it, the herbal hot compress is good for relaxation!

The meditation in the middle of nature and with the presence of a monk was one of the highlights, a pure moment of relaxation. The chanting of the monks was also an unforgettable moment shared together.

It was a nice retreat, it was so fun, wonderful time spent with this group. Hope to see you again for another retreat.

Michèle

The retreat in Chiang Mai was an unforgettable week, physically and emotionally intense. Real moments of exchange and sharing around yoga and meditation. This retreat not only rejuvenated me but I felt regenerated as the days went by.

I think the place was particularly well-chosen, Miliza, and the synergy of the group really allowed me to be as relaxed as ever! I also think practicing disciplines like yoga and meditation in connection with nature helps tremendously to let go and feel reconnected to oneself. A gentle well-being!
