Testimonials

Yoga & Pilates Holiday, Asia Spa, Sweden 

 

What a wonderful retreat, the Asia Spa is a superb venue and couldn't be better, the yoga/pilates studio is wonderful and Rose Marie's classes are fabulous. The dicipiline of yoga and pilates daily is a real treat, add to that  the meditation and Yoga Nidra and use of the spa and you have a fabulous holistic retreat. Varberg is a lovely seaside town, no shortage of beautiful seaside walks and amazing sea air and lovely restaraunts/coffee shops.

 I went on this retreat two years ago and when I went again this year I had to ask myself why I missed out last year? So, I promise to myself to book up for 2011 as soon as Rose Marie advertises the retreat again, I will be first in line.

Thanks Rose Marie for all your hard work in pulling the retreat together and your wonderful work as a teacher.

Love Aly

 

‘Dearest Rose-Marie, I feel I need to write to you to express my gratitude for giving me such a lovely Yoga/Pilates Holiday, with emphasis on your Creative Dance Yoga which was absolutely fantastic! After having a very sad time with a great loss in my family before my holiday I was very worried how I would be, but you were very supportive and the meditation classes helped me to come to terms. I know that I can now face the world with a more positive outlook.’ Love from Myra Webb, Kent.

 

‘If you need to ease the stress and strain of modern living, then Rose-Marie’s Spa Break in Sweden is just the antidote. A luxurious few days in a wonderful, top class Spa Hotel (with Jacuzzi, Vitality Pool, several Saunas, Japanese Wash Room and Meditation Room) was enjoyed by a group of 14 in the charming town of Varberg. The well planned and varied programme prepared by Rose-Marie was excellent and allowed time for wonderful reatments, as well as a walk in a lovely nature reserve.

Rose-Marie’s classes of Yoga and Pilate were great, as usual, and there were also some wonderful meditation and deep relaxation sessions when all our cares and worries just drifted away.

I would strongly recommend the break to anyone – young or old- who wants to re-energise themselves in the calm and friendly atmosphere of a top quality Spa Hotel.’ Anita Brunger, Kent

 

‘Dear Rose-Marie, my time in Sweden has been fantastic! The programme of Yoga, Dance, Meditation was perfect. Your excellent skills in finding the Spa, walk, restaurants and general help is so appreciated.

The friendships formed have me looking forward to returning here or to your other retreats. I have had such a fun and fabulous time.

I will recommend your courses and retreats to everyone.

(I am told I now look 10 year younger!!) God bless. Maureen Scholtka, Surrey.

 

‘What a perfect venue for such a wonderful retreat. Everything was lovely and I would not have liked to change anything! And now I feel so relaxed, calm, flexible and oh, my skin feels divine! Thank you!! Briony Wentworth-Ping, France.

 

Yoga & Meditation Retreat, Gullmarsstrand Hotel, Fiskebackskil, Sweden 

 

Just to say I loved the holiday, it was a perfect break and just what I needed to 'recharge the batteries'.  All the practicalities were excellent and accommodation comfortable.  I found the location delightful with plenty to do in the few days we were there.  Having two yoga sessions a day was a luxury with each day's classes were slightly different and very, very relaxing.  Everyone in the group was so friendly, I would thoroughly recommend the holiday for anyone on their own or with a friend in need of a completely relaxing and de-stressing short break. Thanks for taking such care! With kind regards. Teresa Deacon, London.

 

Just wanted to thank you very much again for the beautiful time we had in Sweden. Hope I´ll have the chance to participate in another one of your wonderful retreats and good luck for your future.

Celine Zosso, Geneva.

 

Dear Rose-Marie

Thank you for a lovely holiday! I really enjoyed the yoga and found your teaching style clear and easy to follow, which was a relief because I had taken a break from my local class - and now I really want to do yoga regularly again because I got so much benefit from your classes.

I think Gullmarsstrand hotel was a great location for the venue, being on the water with fantastic views (the sea view was well worth paying extra for) and I loved Fiskebackskil with its pretty houses and little streets. Another highlight for us was hiring bikes and going to Grundsund.

I thought the food in the hotel was excellent, and we enjoyed all our breakfasts, lunches and dinner there.

I hope to come on another holiday or weekend with you in the future. Do let me know what else you are doing!

All best wishes

Catherine Millican, London.
