A next weekend retreat is not booked yet.
At this stage I don’t know when we will have a next Yoga Weekend & Retreat. I envision that it could possibly be a small group. We rent a private, holiday home for a weekend and cook our own meals. Same as I did in the early retreats I was offering.
Please let me know, if this sounds good for you. As soon as enough are keen, I will start to organise. Thank You!!

Retreat Review by Thana:
I have never been to a yoga retreat and I was quite sceptical initially. A friend told me about it and I thought I will give it a go. It was a great decision! The teacher Maria Prema was great – skilled and personable; I felt really comfortable with her. The view was breath-taking and the food was delicious. Meeting like-minded people and doing yoga for the 3 days was wonderful. To do Surya Namaskar while watching the sun rise over the ocean was quite an amazing experience. On the whole, it was soul-enriching and the retreat was a real treat for me!

Thank you Maria. Great memories of our Yoga Retreat. Thank you for all the effort you put in.
This is Penelope …
Firstly, Thank you for an Absolutely Lovely retreat and for attracting an amazing authentic bunch of people to your Yoga Practice.. It was so nice to be pushed gently out of my comfort zone of yoga I have fallen into and reacquaint with some old stretches and poses and look at a couple of new ones as well. You have motivated me to start the day again with my Salute to the Sun Routine.
Thanks again for a wonderful weekend! I came away from this weekend with so much.. Even a new inspired menu for my daughter and I 😃
After such an invigorating weekend of yoga, meditation and friendship, I feel I must write and thank you. I feel so blessed to know you and to be able to share in your wealth of knowledge about the philosophy of yoga, meditation, chanting and your life experiences which you passed on to us at Gunnebah Retreat. It has been a very uplifting experience for me.
Thank you also for your talent in singing and playing the harmonium for us and teaching us how to chant. I found the pranayama exercises so beneficial. My nasal passages have never felt so unobstructed.
The facilities, the food, and the company of so many interesting people who are from all walks of life and who all share our common interest in yoga were part of the enriching experience for me. I especially appreciate your understanding of people and how you are able to motivate and inspire us all no matter our personal circumstances.
With thanks Maria,
