Leading a busy and rather stressful London life (with two small kids and two small family businesses) I was craving and searching for a real ecape, somewhere I could replenish my energy, nourish my body, and reconnect with myself. Abundance Yoga Retreats at San Flaviano Monastery provided all of that and much much more.
Just the place it is located in could alone provide me with all the things I needed. The retreat is in the midst of spectacular lush serene mountains, I can’t imagine a better place to leave all your worries and breathe deeply, find your center and relax.. And when all of this is coupled with a superb food, amazing yoga and the best hospitality, you definitely wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.. It feels all of the aspects of the self, the body, the mind and the spirit are thoroughly looked after.”The food is lovingly prepared by the host Tess, always fresh, natural and locally sourced and inspired. Yoga is just at the pace you want it to be, with attentive, always smiling, supportive and very talented teacher. Yet what really stayed with me is the values, the whole beautiful ethos that the whole retreat is run according, and the hospitality! I felt at home, I felt welcome and looked after as if I was a good family friend. Tess Hunneybell that runs the retreat, don’t just ‘run the retreat’, she opens the doors of her beloved home to you, and welcome you with her heart open, with love and passion for what she does, for working with people, and enormous experience and professionalism in her trade, except that her ‘trade’ is not just her ‘trade’, it’s her life and her heart, and I feel privileged to have met her and have been a part of her wonderful project! I still carry this renewed energy within me and can’t wait to go back!
“My week at Abundance Yoga Retreat was utterly amazing and I only hope that anyone reading this will be lucky enough to go and spend some time there too.I arrived stressed, tired and fed up. I was expecting to come away rested but actually I got so much more. I feel completely transformed. I couldn’t tell you if it was the amazing location, the wonderful food, the energizing yoga or the energy work with Tess and Kevin.As a yoga teacher myself and having run retreats in the past all over the world I have fairly strong views as to what constitutes a good retreat and what constitutes a good teacher. Abundance yoga retreats have really got it right.The relaxed atmosphere means it feels like you are staying with an old friend, Tess is possibly the most generous person I have ever had the pleasure of staying with. Nothing was too much trouble and every day she went out of her way to make sure everybody had everything they needed and more.Yoga sessions with Laura were wonderful, varied and perfect for the mood of each day. Our group varied from me who has ten years experience as a teacher to my sister who had never taken a class before and we all felt the level was perfect for us. If you want a wonderful relaxed atmosphere, fun yoga, great food in a wonderful location then definitely visit San Flaviano.”
