I've been here over a month, and will be here for six weeks in yoga teacher training. I feel as if this is my home away from home. The staff is like my family, and we are always cheerful and laughing. I love to lounge out on the grass "carpet" in the sunshine, and look at the beautiful views of...

I visited HIYA for 3 nights 4 days, I had read some of the reviews and saw there was loads of great reviews and a few not so good ones so I wasn't sure what to expect, I was a bit apprehensive after reading the bad ones. I will write a fair review and point out the good bits and...

I stayed for 8 day. I was very interested in learning about Meditation. The yoga is very gental and slow. If you are looking for a challenging cardio workout dont bother. The treatments and food where a highlight for me and why I gave a higher rating then average. I also really liked the location and amount of free time...

I had practiced yoga for about 6 months and decided to take my teacher training at HIYA. -That was the best decision of my life. I never imagined that I would learn so much in only 2 months. I now fell confident teaching yoga, have an insanely flexible body, but most important; I have a better life. I felt like...

I can highly recommend this place if you wish to learn about meditation and yoga, or if you want to extend your existing knowledge of yog. One or two nights, a couple of weeks or even months; any duration is most likely to make a very positive imprint in your soul. I was supposed to stay for two nights but...

We booked for 2 nights 3 days. On arrival we were told nothing scheduled for day 1 but rest and shower. If you even only done one yoga class this will be a waste of your time, as you will have already learnt more then you will learn here. If you love yoga and meditation this is not the place...

I booked 4 days/3 nights, and i chose a tent for accommodation. I opted for a tent to get the most 'natural' experience. I liked it so much. I am a total Yoga newbie, no, actually I was a total Yoga newbie, but after my stay at HIYA I am definitely smarter:) What I liked most about how Yoga is...

I stayed at HIYA for their 3 night package in Harmony one of the very cute little tents - could have easily stayed longer and i recommend staying the three nights as an minimum.
