When I say it couldn't have been better, it genuinely and truly couldn't have been better. I usually don't write reviews, even after a good experience, but with Yoga Sutra Shala I had to because I had an incredible experience.
I came for a very specific reason... to learn how to use yoga & meditation as a way to combat my ongoing mental health issues. Yoga Sutra Shala was the perfect place for me (and clearly for many other people too) to do a yoga retreat. I gained so much knowledge about the yoga philosophy, developed my meditation & yoga skills, ate delicious, organic & nutritious food (thanks Natalie & Kate!), embarked on a rich inner journey through introspection and relaxation & felt extremely safe and well cared for. But not only that, I felt like I was with family. Namit & Maru are 2 of the best yoga teachers that you could come across and they have such deep knowledge and understanding of yoga, meditation, nutrition & mindfulness, that they are more than happy to share with you. Everything about the retreat was very well thought-out and well organised from the daily & weekly schedule, the meals, the classes, the meditation topics, the airport pick up & drop off etc. They truly gave us the luxury of not having to worry about anything other than our spiritual journey and personal development. Everything was easy and excellent. I wanted the best foundation to start my yoga & meditation healing journey and I had received that and so much more. If you're debating about whether to go or not, go. There's a reason why every review is a 5 star review.
We had a lovely mother and daughter retreat here.
The setting was wonderful high up in the mountains . Fresh clean air , beautiful views and we learnt so much about yoga, meditation and pranayama . We also learnt a lot about food ! Kate was an incredible chef , creative and imaginative and left us all wanting her vegetarian recipes . Namit could tell us all about the food we were eating and how we can cook and eat to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
I am still following his yoga sequences as I really felt the benefits of his teaching and his holistic approach to life and longevity .
A yoga retreat which definitely left us wanting more
The food was delicious and nutritious, the yoga was fun, challenging and energising, and Namit and Maru gave us all a warm and wonderful welcome. The location is spectacular with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I really enjoyed the guided meditation and the nutrition advice, and I felt that my yoga technique really improved - I've returned to my regular classes stronger, more flexible and more confident.
I loved my stay here, I had a wonderful time and left feeling thoroughly rejuvenated and inspired - thank you so much Namit and everyone else at Yoga Sutra Shala!

Thank you so much Namit and Maru for this wonderful week, I am so grateful for having been able to get to know you. From the first second on I felt at home in Yoga Sutra Shala. The mix between the fantastic yoga classes in the morning and the evening and the free time in between was perfect.
Food was exceptionally good and of very high quality. Thanks to the amazing food, the yoga classes, the relaxed atmosphere and the beautiful scenery I was able to gain a lot of energy and optimism during this week.
What an amazing stay I had! Sayalonga really is a very beautiful part of the world and I am so happy to have found this retreat. Namit and Maru could have not been more welcoming right from the start and although I was new to Yoga they were very encouraging and I feel I learnt so much from them in just six days. The food was amazing. Kate and team introduced me to the most delicious organic vegan food that really has changed the way I think about the way that I eat. To say that the retreat has changed me for life would not be an exaggeration. The group of people that were with me were a fantastic bunch and the great memories I have from the retreat will stay with me for a long time.
Yoga Sutra Shala is a beautiful yoga retreat in Sayalonga. I've stayed here for the past week and I have to say how pleased I was for having come here.
Namit, Maru, David, Manu and Sarah and the adorable Anya were all very friendly and I felt like the Shala was "my" home.
The yoga classes are focused around Vinyasa and Ashtanga yoga, and are suitable for everyone at different stages in their yoga journey; I'd particularly recommend it for beginners.
Food was exceptionally good. Vegetarian and vegan food are prepared by their in house chefs (Kate and Natalie) who are highly skilled. Namit also made the effort of eating with us and going through the food to discuss the nutritional aspects of the food we were eating. And it was high quality organic food too. Snacks are also provided in between meals so you never have to feel hungry.
I look forward to keeping in touch with everyone and am grateful for having met this wonderful family. Thank you for everything!
Really comfortable stay here with welcoming hosts Namit and Maru.
I really enjoyed the yoga and the meditation all taking place outside surrounded by the mountains. The food was beyond delicious and all home cooked.
Very homely atmosphere and good company with like-minded guests.
Perfect place to chill- out and relax and definitely worth a visit!
