“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”

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.

I love the structure of the retreat
Anandi is so giving of her time inside and outside of the workshops. She created immediately a welcoming, informal and safe place so I could instantly relax and open up to this incredibly supportive experience
This is the most impressive retreats I’ve been to, and I’ve been to a lot. It’s four retreats in one: yoga, Ayurveda, sleep, philosophy and lifestyle. Such deep wisdom and knowledge with such an incredible amount of love. It’s life changing for everyone or anyone who wants to improve and transform their waking life and anyone who wants to improve their sleep. I loved, loved, loved it
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

No flexibility required for yoga on this retreat.
Yoga is the sister science of Ayurveda. We’ll be using it as it’s intended to be used, a healing tool, not a body beautiful workout…although, of course, the side affects of regular yoga is a healthier body for sure.
This retreat is for a maximum of 4 people so that I can focus on each individual fully.
On most retreats there’s little time to dedicate to personal coaching.
You’ll have my full attention for the whole retreat!

What’s not included:
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.
