Welcome to Yoga Explorers

Nolly Martin - 12/06/2015

This was my first yoga retreat so I was initially a little anxious. However, Jim and Jo made us all feel like close friends from the off.

Locanda del Gallo is a tranquil, elegant and understated haven. I found it the perfect place to find a level of balance and inner calm I've never before experienced. The hosts have created a sanctuary from the world on a hilltop location surrounded by woods and valleys. The rooms are simply decorated and furnished with beautiful items from around the world. Comfy beds, hot showers, fabulous healthy home-cooked food, breathtaking swimming pool, restorative hammam. It all added up to the most fabulous treat that you could award yourself.

The yoga 'dojo' set in a silent, sunny, woodland glade had me at 'hello'. And then there is Jim's teaching..... I was able to relax and really get into the yoga practice more fully than ever before. On top of this, Jim passes on his extensive knowledge with such gentle humour. It's like listening to a softly murmuring stream, holding your attention because what he's telling you is so interesting and insightful - but playful too. I loved it!

Thank you so much Jo for organising everything so beautifully, and for finding a little bit of heaven to share with us.
