What Our Students Say

Svitlana Filimoshkina - Ukraine

 

 

"I am grateful that I met Anna and Jurgen 6 months ago and started my yoga path with them. Joining my first yoga retreat with Maha Shanti Yoga to Sri Lanka was a life changing experience. It gave me lots of knowledge about life and about myself, new friends and of course inspiration to keep practicing and searching." "The accommodation and food at Villa De Zoysa was fantastic and well-organized excursions let us explore the country and the culture. Outdoor full moon dinner, partner yoga, satsangs, sunset meditations and lots of magical moments with amazing people who shared their knowledge and experience will remain in our hearts forever." "I enjoyed every single moment of my journey with warm and friendly people in this special place and can highly recommend it!  With love & gratitude - Your Lana"

"The Knaubenhof spring retreat was a chance for me to practice with two genuine teachers and other dedicated yoga practitioners after years of a solo home practice. Anna and Juergen helped me pinpoint areas of strength and areas needing attention. Their kindness and sincerity brought out the best in each of their students. It was a wonderful opportunity to connect with a yoga tribe and learn so much in a beautiful setting among gracious hospitality."  - Mindy

" ...My focus has been hatha yoga since 1974. Anna and Juergen's Knaubenhof yoga retreat came at the right time for me to move on to prana. When the fruit is ripe, it will fall. I teach yoga in Costa Rica and added what I learned to my classes here. Anna and Juergen's classes were real." - Billy

"I have just been lucky enough to join Anna and Juergen’s ‘Yoga & The 7 Chakras’ retreat in Greece. Traveling there I was a little nervous – not knowing what to expect. Within an hour of being there any anxieties disappeared. Anna and Juergen are so welcoming (as were the rest of their yoga family - many of whom retreat with them every year). The setting is stunning, peaceful and talk about a room with a balcony view. The yoga shala is by far the best I’ve practiced in and it is very special to watch the sun rise daily above the ocean whilst practicing yoga. THANK YOU Anna and Juergen for going above and beyond to create this little Greek haven to remind people what life can feel like: waking up to yoga, enjoying more stretching, pranayama and meditation after a day of relaxing on the beach or sight-seeing, slowing down, 7 star hosting, learning about Yoga, never tiring of my questions, great company, plenty of personal space, fun, a last tiny bit of summer and best of all lots of simple yoga and pranayama tips to take a little piece of the retreat back to the rat race.". - Jodie

"For years, I wanted to experience a yoga retreat in Tuscany and was fortunate to do that at Ebbio with Anna and Juergen. In addition to being highly skilled and caring teachers, they are friendly and fun and instantly welcomed me into their family. Anna and Juergen are wise and kind and do more than teach, they build community. I have taken tons of classes in NY with wonderful teachers but when I say “my yoga teachers” I am referring to Anna and Juergen because of the special journeys we have taken together. I recommend Anna and Juergen’s classes to students of all levels and look forward to our next adventure. " - Virginia

"Another yoga journey with you in Greece – another wonderful and amazing experience for me! This small group with very lovely people from all over the world made this retreat in Greece very special. We shared a wonderful time in Sri Lanka this March so this week was a reunion for us. The energy was so beautiful that everyone could just be how they are. Thanks for enlightening me about yoga and accompanying me through my yogi way of life, which helps me a lot in every day life. You are wonderful teachers and genuine people – thank you and thank Saji for sharing the knowledge and love. Namaste and shanti!" - Anna
