"Hi Rose Marie,

 

Just a few words to say how much I appreciated the Iceland trip:-

 

This trip was my first one to Iceland and my first yoga holiday and I will be back for more of both as it was such a wonderful experience. Yoga was the one thing that we all had in common and it made for a very harmonious trip. Many thanks to you, Rose Marie for organising the  whole trip and the great yoga sessions which very subtly suited us all thanks to your experience and deep understanding – I loved your yoga nidra for perfect relaxation. Thanks also to Andreas for all the excellent arrangements and love for and knowledge about  his adopted country which added so much to the trip.  Akureyi, our base, is a lovely town picturesquely located on the fjiord and offered us a warm welcome [and good shopping!]. Our day in Mvatyn was a spiritual experience for all of us that we will never forget and that we will return to in our minds again and again.The aurora borealis did not appear for us – I think it was switched off to make sure that we return to Iceland!

 

Keep on organising fantastic trips and experiences.

 

Many thanks,

Sally, Lincoln"

 

 

"Dear Rose-Marie

 

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed our wonderful week in Iceland.

 

I now know why the airline we travelled with is called WOW air. Everywhere we went our reaction was ‘wow’!! Spectacular sights and sounds culminating in the most sumptuous bathe in the hydro-thermal waters of Myvatn as the sun was setting on the horizon. Something I shall never forget.

 

Your yoga classes were as restorative as ever. Our group was of mixed ability and you structured the classes accordingly so everyone felt comfortable. After a week of yoga, relaxation, delicious food and experiencing the wonders of this spectacular country, my mind and body feel rejuvenated and refreshed.

 

Thank you so much

Lynette, Kent"

 

 

"Hi Rose-Marie

Thankyou so much for our fabulous yoga holiday / retreat in Akureyri; everything was just marvellous. Our apartment accommodation spotless, comfortable, and warm. The lovely ladies in Kaffe Ilmur who provided a plentiful supply of gorgeous vegetarian food, which is probably slightly alien for Icelanders! Andreas, our personal guide; for whom nothing was too much trouble. He educated and entertained us; our excursions were magical, his attention to detail, organisation, and his personal care of us was superb. Plus a special thanks from me for arranging horse riding for some of us on our one free morning. The yoga studio (at Andreas & Ulrica's home) was small, peaceful and quite beautiful; albeit sometimes it was difficult to concentrate with the beauty of the fjord outside the window! We loved our 'welcoming committee' of Huskies who would have licked us to death had they been given the opportunity.

 

Your yoga classes were as expected very well crafted and balanced; always taking care of the body - could they have been longer? The only downfall was the sun unfortunately not providing us with the northern lights - does this mean we have to return to try again!!!!!!!!! The week was wonderful and I haven't stopped smiling. Thankyou very very much for arranging it.

 

Nicola, Maidstone, Kent."
