Teacher: Natasha Moutran

From the moment I arrived on Silver Island I felt I was in a magical place... The island is beautiful, crystal clear waters, blue sky, sunshine (the view was perfect from a hammock). Lissa and Corne were the best hosts, making us feel like part of the family for our week's visit. The food was healthy and delicious (I can't wait for the cookbook to come out!) Everything was lovingly prepared and the place decorations for every meal were a lovely touch. I was upgraded to the best room on Silver Island - how cool was that - and enjoyed the spaciousness of the room and terrace. Resting on the daybed overlooking the sea was sublime... The yoga was just right - 4 hours a day with a good mixture of Vinyassa Flow, meditation, posture alignment, walking meditation and a session on how to take the benefits of retreat into everyday life. (I'm trying!) Our teacher Natasha has the kindest heart and her warmth created real community in our group. (We've even started a Facebook Group to keep in touch). I very much hope to return to this perfect place which provided the space I needed to relax, unwind, and take a breather from the busyness of life. Thank you everyone. PS: The chickens are super cute - especially when they watch morning yoga practice
