People About This Retreat

I have beautiful, vivid memories of my classes led by Antonella. She guided us through the practice with her calming voice. Sometimes it turned out to be more challenging but Antonella was motivating to take the extra step. Sometimes classes were more relaxing and Antonella was there to support you and letting yourself allow to fall, pampering you with metaphorical and visual language. Classes had an engaging musical background and all senses were appealed over the course of the time. I was not only impressed by Antonellas experience, which became clear through her comprehensive knowledge about anatomy and yoga philosophy but also by her ability to create a personal, cozy atmosphere. One could feel that her engaging smile and positive aura got transmitted to the students and it influenced the pleasant, magical atmosphere. Antonella always found beautiful words in a captivating and inspiring manner. Thank you for showing me all this, Antonella, I took a lot away from your classes, they are a true enrichment!

Antonella has a very empathetic way of teaching. In her classes you feel embraced and you can surrender to her profound knowledge, her calmness and presence. I felt inspired by her feminine energy, her kindness and lightness. If you have an injuries or some physical limitations that makes an asana difficult, Antonella is always able to find an alternative for you. There is no shavasana like the ones Antonella gently guides you into and out of.
