Last Year’s Group and Testimonials
I’m whole heartedly recommending Miska to all my friends. She is exceptionally warm and friendly, yoga classes felt personal and she was always available for further support.
(Panna)
From the first class I was impressed with the way Miska taught – focusing on the physical poses as well as on exploring the emotional and spiritual aspects during practice. I’d never experienced this approach before and im really feeling the benefits. I will definitely be incorporating yoga into my life because of Miska. Im extremely grateful.
(Jo)
Miska is a great teacher with vast and very detailed technical knowledge about yoga. I will take everything I learned from Miska into my daily practice and would recommend her as a yoga teacher to everyone!
(Nico)
A group of students with a wide range of ages and abilities who were able to come together and support each other in a caring and sharing environment. The retreat allowed me as an older beginner to realize that age and infirmity are not a problem and with practice I too can improve my yoga experience under Miska’s expert guidance. –
Sadie (senior student)
I hadn’t done a great deal of yoga before and I have had chronic fatique syndrome, and was unaware whether or not the retreat would be too demanding but the variety of classes catered for all levels. Miska was extremely understanding; she is a marvelous teacher – showing that yoga is much more than contortion-ism……that it is potentially a way of life. I was very impressed with her ability to take us in yoga further, whatever our level and ability. I would absolutely recommend Miska as a teacher and thoroughly recommend her retreats. I had a wonderful week of yoga, meditation and relaxation with Miska.
