“I came to the retreat to get some rest and do some yoga. What I got instead was a truly life-changing experience.
Words cannot convey the immense journey I have been guided through.
The location was the perfect setting.
The mixture of people and their varied stories gave us all the chance to remember that we all share the same truth:
that we want to love and be loved, to find the inner light and accept, nurture, and forgive the past…the Shadow.
On this journey I cherished all of Boonath’s words as he guided us through the asanas, mantras and meditations.
He took the sacred teachings and shared them with us wish such humble beauty.
It became a palpable, natural, logical, spiritual state to experience all of the ropes of life’s emotions.
To accept and love ourselves and to honour the Shadow as it reveals the Light.
In the sacred circle, when we shared eye contact I felt transported into another state of being, feeling more love than I have ever before.
My heart broke open and it filled the space. Thank you.”

From the moment I arrived the host was so friendly and helpful like a friend greeting you,
he made me feel very comfortable and any nervousness vanished.
The yoga was very authentic, unique and just how it was described when I booked, I certainly got what I was looking for.

The honesty and the sharing that was brought to the table inspired and encouraged me.

“The Yoga Retreat showed me again what had been hidden inside
and I am very thankful for it.
Kim and Boonath provided extensive support practically, spiritually as well as intellectually
as they dispose over a range of strategies and seemed to complement each other in an almost poetical way,
which reminding me of the famous friends Narcissus and Goldmund in the book by Hermann Hesse.
The retreat was very recreational, the food and surrounding nature absolutely fantastic,
and I can recommend the retreat to anyone who wants to explore
the playful and at the same time powerful side of human existence.”
“On the first day I was a little intimidated with the system as i didn’t expect this line of healing.
It was quite an experience.
Frankly i thought it was a scene from some kind of horror movie with the chantings in the dark
and the way the words like “witch” were used quite so informally.
I only got over it the 3rd day, when the momentum got the better of me.
And then it was smooth sailing.
I got to understand Boonath and his mystical moves and the group gave me a lot of encouragement.
The way people talked to each other and interacted was for me an eye opener.
Organising and getting everyone on board and keep them happy was a formidable task.
And a big big thank you!”
– Businessman, India
“Amazing! Gosh, what a great place, teaching and people. Great!
For me this retreat was a huge uplift and reminder of the great power of Yoga.
Luxury staying and authentic healthy home-cooked food.
And the group’s energy was so supportive.
And Boonath’s personality is so warm and gentle – he teaches with great passion
and gives every individual person on the retreat the attention they need.
Such a knowledgeable and humble being. A really inspiring person.”

If some experiences in life must be shared, then this is one of them.

I feel that I will discover more about this as I enter my busy world again in order to integrate it all.
Boonath is a very insightful teacher, very caring and authentic.
I have never met anyone like him before.
I certainly learned something very important about my own shadow from Boonath taking time to sit privately with me.
I will treasure these insights very dearly!”
