I absolutely loved ​Fuerteventura, with the beautiful beaches, turquoise sea & sand dunes. Our accommodation had a great relaxed feel ​and was set in Villaverde a perfect setting for a yoga retreat. Paco the owner was always around to help with any queries ​​and went out of his way to welcome us. The vegetarian food was varied ​​and lovingly prepared for us on a daily basis. The group were fantastic, there were only nine of us which was very special ​​and meant we had the opportunity to get to know each other well, trust each other ​​and at the same time have lots of laughs ​​and fun together. Steve's yoga was excellent. He catered for all levels, is very knowledgeable ​​and entertaining! There was a special emphasis on restorative yoga which was appreciated by everyone. Every day we had inspiring talks ​​and discussions about health issues with Sohère, as well as an invaluable one-to-one session. Sohère is one very special lady which along with Steve is what really made the Retreat such an amazing experience. There is a fabulous hike up a nearby volcano that was definitely worth the climb for the superb views all across the island. We had a wonderful celebration with impromptu dancing on our last night which brought the Retreat to a perfect end. A massive thank you Sohère, Steve ​​and the whole group. It was an experience I will cherish ​​and hope to repeat!

An Amazing 6 days in the company of wonderful inspiring women. The food was delicious and plentiful, the yoga and meditation were both delivered in a progressive and fun way, and the daily health and wellbeing talks given by Sohère were outstanding. Who knew Fueturventura was such a magical place, and so utterly beautiful! The villa is perfectly situated to experience the best of the island's beaches, towns, and scenery. You will struggle to find a retreat that ticks so many boxes, and delivers on all counts. Saving up for Costa Rica!

I attended the ALIVE retreat in January this year after a friend showed me an article written about the retreat and how much they had benefited from attending. The experience far outweighed my expectations! My friend and I were met by Dr Sohère and immediately felt so at ease. I was anxious that as a middle-aged woman I might feel a little intimidated by the whole experience, but this could not have been further from the truth. We made some dear friends and had so much fun, I don't think I have laughed so much for a long time, it really helped me remember who I was as I think with all the busyness of life this had got a little lost. The yoga was 'amazing' as Steve would say and I got my body to move in ways I thought no longer possible. The sessions were paced beautifully, and Steve was attentive and thoughtful about supporting each of us on our individual journey with yoga and meditation. Sohère guided us through a daily discussion about relevant health issues and her knowledge and expertise was evident. She ensured that all the discussions were tailored to the groups needs and the one-to-one consultation was very informative, she was also great fun! There was loads of time to simply chill out, relax and play, again something I think I had forgotten about. I came home feeling strong in mind and body, feeling able to move forward in the next stage of my life with confidence, calmness and excitement. I can't thank them enough...and can't wait to do it again.

​​​What a fabulous few days with some amazing people. Lovely small group which gelled well immediately. The retreat got going straight away with a fabulous lunch, then introductions and yoga. The food on the retreat was gorgeous and plentiful. Sohère is a warm and incredibly knowledgable person, and makes you feel extremely welcome. The yoga with Steve was as usual fun, therapeutic and accessible. What I take away from this retreat as well is the importance of mind wellbeing. Meditation and visualization is now something I feel I can practice daily and will make a difference in my life. Thank you Sohère and Steve, and thank you to the ‘being alive’ gang, I hope to see you all soon.

​​From arrival at the airport, to saying au revoir, there was a feeling of togetherness, acceptance and understanding. Everyone was encouraged to be individual, to find their own path, but to be on a journey. The small group made it intimate, but in no way claustrophobic. There was opportunity for solitude and space for reflection. The yoga was “awesome” and doable, for all abilities. Movement was encouraged, but in no way threatening. Progress was assured without being stated. Discussions ranged from being intellectual to frivolous. The education was successful. As Miss Jean Brodie said, it is a drawing out, not a putting in. A wealth of knowledge was gleaned. I’ll only remember a fraction of it, so will have to go again. Accommodation was fantastic. Everything was very comfortable.
The whole experience was an excellent way to start the year. Feeling grateful and blessed.

​​Sohère’s retreat made me think. She introduced new ideas, but with a practical angle, and shared some of her own experiences which helped me integrate her advice, and also to be able to recognise that change is challenging for everyone. I found her to be one of the most authentic people I have encountered in my quest for ‘optimal health’. In her 1:1 session with me, she was open to hear what I felt I needed from her, but also realistic and practical without making a big fuss. She organised a hand selected team i.e. chef, masseuse, spiritual advisor and yoga teacher, all of whom were outstanding in their field. I have struggled with yoga in the past – Steve made this fun, which enabled me to engage fully. The other ladies attending were people being proactive and wanting to make a difference in their lives, so I trust I may have forged some lovely friendships as an added bonus! I would highly recommend Sohère’s retreat – I will be reflecting on her words for months to come – she was able to quietly challenge me in areas where I was not showing commitment, which I deeply respect, as it has enabled me to view myself with some (much needed) objectivity which (I trust) will result in positive change, to carry me through (hopefully) many future years of optimal health and vitality. All this is delivered in an environment of relaxation, recreation, entertainment, surf and sun ?! The retreat was more fun than I expected, and Sohère’s input may well have created a significant turning point in my Life!

The whole trip was very well organised, with a great balance of excursions and time to relax and unwind. The yoga sessions were fantastic and catered for all levels and the food was just incredible. The retreat was just what I needed and more. Dr Sohère made everyone feel at home as soon as we arrived and was always on hand to answer any questions. Her daily talks were really interesting and it was great to be able to learn so much from a doctor in an accessible way. Another fantastic feature was being able to have a personal medical consultation with Dr Sohère. I am determined to incorporate what I have learnt into ‘normal life’ back home. However, I think I need Dr Sohère to help with my Alive Retreat withdrawal symptoms!

​​I have a huge smile on my face just thinking about the Alive Retreat. I had never been on a retreat before or been away from my young family for so long, but I felt I needed some time just for me, so I put lots of plans in place for life to run smoothly at home while I came along to the retreat. Everything and I mean EVERYTHING was fabulous! The yoga, meditation and visualisation with Steve Mugnier taught me so much – not just the practice of yoga twice a day but Steve’s knowledge and wise words, along with his infectious humour, made every session thoroughly enjoyable and never a chore. The trip to the sand-dunes was breathtaking and the beautiful chanting (again, something I’d never done and was a bit self-conscious about at first) sitting on the sand, under the hot sun, made me feel totally relaxed. We even went for a swim in the sea – not once but twice!Sohère… a very special lady. Sohère gave us a talk each afternoon for an hour or so. During the talk we could all ask questions, which she answered clearly. Amongst other things, the talks included information about Supplements, Hormones and Gut Health.. she was so informative and we all came away with knowledge that would help us. She really cares, she listens, is very intelligent but so very normal too, she is open, kind, patient, honest and generous with the sharing of her knowledge. Each of us also had a 1-2-1 consultation with her and by the end of the retreat we were given her recommendations and mine were all ones that I could implement myself, so extremely useful. I have come home with a light heart, an even bigger love of yoga, lots of useful tips, a calm mind and a brand new group of amazing friends. It really was one of the best experiences I’ve had. Thank you so much.

The combination of amazing, healthy vegetarian food (which was amongst the best I have ever eaten) and fantastic yoga led by Steve, made for a superb retreat. The icing on the cake was that the whole retreat was run by a qualified GP who recognises the need to see a person as a whole, so we were given one-to-one consultations to discuss lifestyle, diet, any body and/or mind health issues etc. This made a complete change from the usual GP consultation to discuss a single symptom. The week was spent with lovely like-minded people, and we had such a laugh. There were opportunities for excursions to the beach, star-gazing, shopping and lying in the Sun by the pool. All-in-all, I can’t recommend this retreat enough. It was great value too.

​​​As two absolute beginners the retreat was quite a culture shock for Sharon and I. We had never been on a retreat, never had a single session of yoga and never really examined a holistic approach to health. The retreat was a totally positive experience for both of us from the vegetarian dining, the twice daily yoga sessions, the very informative health talks and getting to know our fellow "inmates" sorry guests! Sohere give us a real insight to preventive and integrative medicine and the informal discussions allowed questions to be asked that doctors don't normally have the time to answer. Steve our yoga instructor was part David Bowie, part Bruce Lee, part Billy Connolly and most importantly, all Steve! He made a couple of novices enjoy our first experience of yoga. We are now converts and look forward to the benefits we believe it will bring. Thank you Sohere and Steve and best wishes to all the new friends you introduced us to. Anyone thinking of attending future retreats we would say don't hesitate.

An Amazing 6 days in the company of wonderful inspiring women. The food was delicious and plentiful, the yoga and meditation were both delivered in a progressive and fun way, and the daily health and wellbeing talks given by Sohère were outstanding. Who knew Fueturventura was such a magical place, and so utterly beautiful! The villa is perfectly situated to experience the best of the island's beaches, towns, and scenery. You will struggle to find a retreat that ticks so many boxes, and delivers on all counts. Saving up for Costa Rica!
