Yoga -scule Rolf Heim
Reviewed 26 August 2013

I needed some quiet pace in a lovely region for a couple of days and found Yoga Heim on Internet.
It was clear from the first contact that the service beside yoga and « meditation » sessions would be poor and the interest of the owner focused on the money rather than on the well being of the guest. Simple accomodation overpriced without breakfast or any advise regarding logistic or excursion.
The old house with a beautiful garden has not be renewed . The « tower room » (or sauna room?) with a beautiful view under the roof was just too hot in the day before 8 pm , when the temperature „dropped at“ 28 degrees and was furbished with old dusty carpet and furniture. The small shower room was even more hot. A closeby loud street going to the italian boarder with heavy traffic night and day is ruining the peace of the beautiful garden and rooms.

The rules are so strict (not allowed to bring a bottle of water or to come bare feet in the yoga room, to leave luggage after check out, and many other material details which just destroy teh peace searched) and the contact so cold that you have the impression of being a pupil at school.

The easy yoga courses dedicated for older stiff people 60/70 are surely good, the „Speaking session“ looks like a monologue of the owner . From „meditation“, 2 sessions were cancelled (out of 3) without any good reason and they were already paid from my side.

Beside many other yoga places providing warm, caring, tasteful and loving welcome, I found the atmosphere in Yoga Heim Ponte Tresa dry and greedy and surely not a place to recommend.
