A Typical Day
on the retreat
You’ll start the day with a knock on your door with a cup of ginger and lemon tea while you prepare for the early morning practice before breakfast.
The morning practice will set you up for the day as you emerge from a space of peace and silence.
After breakfast we’ll be exploring meditation, breathing, yoga or Ayurveda in the morning workshop.
Following a healthy lunch you’ll have a few hours to relax, walk, contemplate or have a massage.
There will be an evening workshop designed to wind down towards dinner.
After dinner we’ll do some sharing or an evening meditation to close the day.

This retreat has surpassed all my expectations. I’m a much happier person taking much more care of myself
Mandy Deakin Snell
I’ve been to many of Anandi’s retreats, but this was the best yet. I’ve learned so much about the benefits of Ayurveda and I can take home some great tips and advice for better well being and sleep
I feel renewed, changed and great. I’m SO glad I came – I have been raving about it to everyone since I got back. It’s an incredibly special experience. Anandi is an amazing teacher. The programme is incredibly well thought out and takes us on a journey. Loved the daily theme!
Beautiful and enriching and life changing. The workshops were excellent and fascinating. Definitely exceeded all my expectations and I am so glad I came.
You made it such a special experience for us all Anandi - I learnt so much and understand so much more about achieving balance and well being in my life. You made it all so authentic, natural, spiritual and moving. And such Fun! I really don't know how to say thank you except to say that I feel so happy, relaxed and full of energy and optimism now, and that's down to you!
Amazing, possibly life changing experience. I gained a wealth of knowledge from Anandi that I can take away with me and implement into my daily life at home. A positive and enjoyable 5 days
Anandi is a very spiritual lady and has a way of teaching that encompasses everything. A truly special experience and journey that I intend to continue. I came for peace and tranquillity and Anandi’s amazing workshops and meditations replenish my soul. It has been simply beautiful. Thank you!”
All in all fabulous. Anandi manages to combine extensive knowledge, skilful teaching techniques with a warm and empathic management of ‘everything’. Her generosity of spirit towards the whole group was remarkable

You are the most magnificent facilitator, Please put me down for the next one! I really had a breakthrough with the Ayurvedic system, well in fact several breakthroughs! A truly five star experience.

Thank you Anandi, I’ve come back to my real self and motivated to make the changes I need
“Just superb. Anandi is so gifted in this and so giving of her time in all ways. It differs from other retreats in that it is so so unique and also intimate because of small numbers which allowed us to really get to know each other and also have a good laugh. I know what I need to work on for better sleep and I am definitely on track”
“The retreat is an experience like no other. It was a relaxing yet action packed 5 days of physical and mental coaching in the vast field of yoga. My mind has expanded as well as feeling chilled, I am armed with exercises to use when I get home. Anandi is a very generous and giving individual and gave special attention to everyone in our group. It’s been completely perfect. Namaste”
“I have been to a number of Anandi’s retreats and will keep coming to them because they are such a refreshing escape from the demands of a busy life. Anandi is a fantastic yoga master and sleep expert and I would highly recommend any of her retreats just to experience the quality of time for yourself in the presence of a wonderful teacher”
“Absolutely lovely and exceeded my expectations”
“Enlightening, informative, restorative and inspirational”
“A magical place ambience and location. Perfect setting for a teaching focused on breathing. No-one could possible not feel tranquil and relaxed in this most eco friendly ‘switch off’ from the world. Namaste, I’ll be back”
Shahara Jagrati MattinglyFounder / Delicious Awakening
Anandi is a fabulous yoga teacher. Her patient energy infused with her gentle, soothing voice made it easy to relax. Her knowledge and expertise of anasa and pranayama as well as yogic philosophy made her classes more personal and informative than most. She is a master teacher and wonderfully compassionate spirit.

The most authentic experience humanly possible
I loved the retreat, it touched so many things. It was exactly what I needed at exactly the right time. I feel rested and rejuvenated. Anandi put so much effort and such attention to detail
Anandi’s retreat has provided me with an overview of Ayurveda and has given me the enthusiasm to practice yoga. It has opened up a new part of my mind and helped me to become more balanced and grounded.
I left Anandi’s retreat able to breathe more deeply and relax more fully as a result. I know that it will help me sleep better. Along with the practices I learned at this beautiful retreat, I highly recommend Anandi’s teaching to anyone anywhere
I’ve been passionate about natural healing ever since my twenties when I was a fitness instructor. As the years rolled on, I realised that I didn’t need to pound the streets, or lift weights in the gym to be healthy, what I needed was balance. I found that balance through yoga, breathing and Ayurveda. In fact, it changed my life.
I went from a seasoned insomniac to someone who sleeps normally and feels amazing most of the time using the tools I’m teaching now.
Many people asked me about how I used the breath to take away the prison of insomnia, so I decided to write a book which I’ve recently published, ‘Breathe Better, Sleep Better’. I wanted to share one of the most important lessons I learned about life through the breath. The more you try to control the breath, the more you restrict the breath. You get less not more. That applies to life too. In order to be healthy and sleep well, you need more space, less control and to be more present.
One of the fundamental reasons I started running retreats was because I realised that people needed the space and time to let go of the stress they accumulate through sleep deprivation and over work. It’s very difficult to do it alone and it becomes too tempting to turn to drugs for respite from sleeplessness.
I believe that health and good sleep is possible when you are in balance. You don’t need drugs. The only way to achieve balance is to learn how to make the right lifestyle choices and rituals that keep you healthy.
Currently, I’ve been developing a special five step process for sleep and wellbeing transformation using the principles of Ayurveda which I share on my retreats. Another book is brewing!
