I was very pleased to attend your Cape Cornwall Yoga Retreat : the
yoga was inspiring, and I learned some new sequences that I am
sharing with my yoga students. I particularly enjoyed the
hip-opening asanas, and the shoulder work was also very good, as was
the chanting. Being able to do the Labyrinth Meditation was a bonus
on the final day. The setting for your Yoga Retreat was delightful,
and the food was delicious. All in all, a treat for me, as well as
fulfilling my Yoga Continuous Professional Development.

enjoyed the Silent Retreat at Bala Brook. It was an amazing
setting and the opportunity just to “BE” was invaluable.
Mira was supportive and gently encouraging, helping us all
to relax and work to our own potential. Since coming home I
have felt no end of benefit and even though I have returned
to a very busy life I still feel completely refreshed a
month later. The raw food diet was fantastic and both Lia
and Mira gave us helpful tips about how we could continue
with these healthy lifestyle choices in everyday life, which
again I found priceless. Thank you Mira, I would recommend
to anyone without hesitation. Mira’s retreats are a real
opportunity to recharge and rejuvenate. Denise, London
found the retreat run by Mira a nourishing, relaxing experience.
Her warm, friendly nature and gentle style of teaching creates a
beautiful healing atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Boswedden House's air of calm and friendly peace makes it a
great location for a yoga retreat. There's a proper room for
yoga, a swimming pool and wonderful vegetarian food.
Under Mira's gentle guidance yoga is fulfilling and fun.
Give it a try!

I have to say that I was possibly a bit apprehensive about
the fact that it was a silent retreat, but in fact it gave
me the ideal opportunity to look inward and reflect deeply
on my life --- to get things in perspective. Being away from
any contact with the outside world gave me the chance to
simply concentrate on the self. I thoroughly enjoyed every
aspect of my stay at Bala Brook, the raw food was
incredible, haven't felt so fit for ages. I hadn't taken
part in chanting before, so that was another new and
enjoyable experience. The meditation I found really helpful,
it always struck me as something a bit complicated - so now
I know I can indulge in some way whenever I feel the need. I
think we all felt we would have liked to stay longer, but
the benefits of those few days linger with me and will
definitely affect my way of life from now on.

I can thoroughly recommend the weekend retreat at Bala
Brook. It was very informative and the dietary side was
therapeutic and also resulted in a weight loss of 4lbs.
I keep practising the new yoga moves I received from
you. I think the weekend did me a world of good , it was
nice to try different things and certainly very nice to
have peace and quiet.

Testimonials From Previous Retreats in Transylvania:
and I were 5 months into our trip around the world, and I was in
desperate need of some relaxation and downtime. We were in Romania at
the time, and I was shocked that a Google search found a nearby yoga
retreat starting the next weekend! Mira's gentle yoga style and
meditation were the perfect ingredients to get me recharged to continue
our journey. Casa Delurani is in the idyllic village of Beznea, where
time stands still and you can still see the people working the land and
pumping water out of their wells. Of all the things I saw and did for 9
months on the road, Mira's yoga retreat was one of the highlights and I
give it my highest recommendation! Tamara, Houston, Texas USA
The opportunity to try a Romanian retreat combined with Gentle Yoga is a treat worth experiencing. The days passed by in a relaxed manner and on departure I found myself ready to return invigorated whilst being sad that the experience was over.
Yoga in Romania was brilliant - the gentle pace and gradual build up over the week, the wonderful setting of the guest house and the warmth of the people. All these things contributed to an unforgettable experience,
As a complete novice I found my introduction to Yoga both interesting and fun. I would recommend it to everyone, especially if you can do it in surroundings such as we had in Romania.
I went on Mira's Transylvanian Yoga Retreat and found the whole experience quite life affirming! From Mira's wonderful chilled yoga sessions to the nurturing environment of the retreat centre nestled amongst pretty villages in the foothills of the Carpathian mountains. Surrounded by a beautiful peaceful landscape the Casa Delrune is a
Swiss chalet style retreat centre. All mod cons are here, spotlessly clean - I slept in one of the smaller wooden chalets set in amongst fruit orchards but there are also lovely rooms in the main retreat centre. We were thoroughly spoilt during our stay and Gabby the cook's wonderful healthy Romanian food was always followed by deliciously rich confections, I particularly loved the Black Forest style layer cakes mmmm. Mira's sessions were just at the right pace and her style is very informal - gentle yoga in the retreat centre looking out to spectacular mountain views what more could one ask for. I came home completely relaxed and energised.
