  • “What a truly wonderful place. We had a fabulous long weekend here and it was heaven. The amazing yoga and therapies, the totally delicious food – all enhanced while in the surroundings of the delightful mini chateau (I think that’s what you call it). The fab animals, the pool, the ptetty outdoor seating and relaxing areas…it was all so energetically perfect, even down to the Ayurvedic soap. And I’m not kidding! Amanda had created a safe, eco friendly, uplifting and totally welcoming retreat here and she is just the perfect host. Thank you ever so much for looking after us and for the wonderful memories”

  • “Just a quick message to pass on my thanks for another great Yoga session – I am really enjoying and starting to benefit from it again.
    I really like your relaxed but professional style too – there is no pressure/ego/competition going on, and I feel very comfortable, yet know I am going to progress each week.”

  • “Thanks for a really good day on Saturday and an insight into your ayurvedic world, enjoyed having a new perspective on eating, thanks for all the interesting combinations of juices and salads, colourful and tasty, felt like we spent more than a day there"

  • ” Last year, I was in a bad state, and needed to change my life journey, I started to attend Praana Wellness weekly yoga classes, and since then, Ayurveda has entered my life, together with sensitive and positive counselling from Amanda. My life has become happier, healthier, and so much more peaceful. I would not have managed without Amanda’s help”

  • “The sound of birds, the fresh breeze and air movement were all lovely, all delicious, varied, tasty fresh veggies, it was all I hoped for and expected, nice friendly group, relaxed atmosphere, well paced both energising and relaxing!”
