​​January 2018

​I attended the ALIVE retreat in January ​2018 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! ​The yoga was 'amazing' as Steve would say and I got my body to move in ways I thought no longer possible. ​Sohère guided us through a daily discussion about relevant health issues and her knowledge and expertise was evident. ​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.

​​​​This retreat experience totally exceeded my expectations. Both Sohère and Steve are wonderful human beings who really care about others and were truly inspiring. I found the whole experience life affirming and pure joy and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

​​​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. ​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. ​Discussions ranged from being intellectual to frivolous. ​Accommodation was fantastic. Everything was very comfortable. The whole experience was an excellent way to start the year. Feeling grateful and blessed.
