Aliya and Sarah guided through a balanced and relaxing week. The group was very open and friendly with happy gatherings around the dinner table and fun yoga classes.

Accessible, fun and challenging. Aliya and Sarah managed to make progression easy and were very conscientious and helpful throughout. I would definitely come again.

My time spent at Itha108 with Aliya and Sarah was the highlight of my summer. From the retreat center to the scenery to the fabulous classes and all of the wonderful, kind people I met, the week exceeded any expectations I may have had. Sarah and Aliya are very knowledgable teachers who guide you through a series of classes and workshops where everyone can learn and benefit. Looking forward to the next!

I came with trepidation as I had not practiced in awhile. I need not have worried as Sarah and Aliya's classes were set up to accommodate all levels. I thoroughly enjoyed my week and am now motivated to resume practicing when I get home. Thanks ladies! Hasta Malaga! 

--Ginette (Itha Retreat, Greece)

A wonderful opportunity to meet great people you wouldn't otherwise and to improve practice and/or discover yoga! Very relaxing, no pressure environment. Good food, good fun, good laughs, and new friends! 

--Chloe (The Hacienda Retreat, Spain)

This retreat has been funny, education, and relaxing - a great combination!

--Noela (The Hacienda Retreat, Spain)

The nicest people to do yoga with and hang out with. Wish it were longer!

My second trip on a yoga retreat with Aliya & Sarah was as rewarding and enjoyable as the first one. Great classs, instruction, food and company!

--Pete (The Hacienda Retreat, Spain)

This was my second retreat with Sarah & Aliya and I can't say enough good things! A week with these two is the perfect antidote to busy lives and a great way to develop some healthy habits (while having a whole lot of fun!)

Having never been on this type of holiday before and being extremely new to yoga I must admit before going to the retreat in Italy last year I was a little nervous and unsure what I would find. What I did find was that Aliya and Sarah are wonderful teachers and hosts and made the whole yoga experience extremely accessible for everyone, the retreat, the food and the fellow yogi’s meant that i had a great time and I am very much looking forward to this year’s retreat in Spain.

The 2013 retreat was one of the best vacations I have ever been on. Sarah and Aliya put tremendous care into every detail, from finding a retreat location that would be a relaxed getaway, to planning each class and workshop to give beginners and experienced yogis alike a comprehensive exposure to the practice. The week was also a perfect combination of planned optional activities and down time to explore the area or simply sit and relax by the pool. A great option for yogis of all ages and experience, or for those just looking for a relaxed vacation in a beautiful setting with great food. I will be back in 2014!
