The retreat is an escape from everything going in your life as it will provide you with tranquil space so that you can fully merge into the practice without any disturbances.
The Teacher’s Training Course I recently completed with Jen has honestly been the best learning experience and course I’ve ever done.
She is an incredibly gracious, loving and encouraging teacher who teaches with passion, from experience and is able to relay the essence and beauty of yoga in its truest form. The retreat is beautiful.
Set in the middle of the sugar cane fields, surrounded by nature, my favorite time would be sitting on the deck, overlooking the dams, watching the sunrise and listening to the birds before the day started.
From the moment I walked through the front door I felt like I was home, that on completing the course, the only complaint I had was that it was finished. If I could do this course again I would.
Thank you Jen and Lee!
I spent a glorious month at the yoga teachers training during February with Jen and Lee. Both our hosts were extremely welcoming and generous with their time and space. Myself and my fellow student were welcomed with opened arms and made to feel at home straight away and treated to beautifully furnished rooms and bathroom. Jen prepared all our meals that were carefully thought out, nutritious and delicious!
The course itself was a life changing experience for me and my fellow student and Jen is extremely knowledgeable in her field and very patient in her explanations of everything. Lee spoilt us often with sweet treats and we had very interesting conversations at dinner time – and even a glass of wine as well!!
We especially loved being able to take the dogs for long walks every afternoon through the beautiful sugar cane fields Overall I really enjoyed my time there and learnt a lot ! Both Jen and Lee are fantastic hosts and I will definitely stay with them again if ever I’m in the area.
