Our Teachers Love us

“This is a rare place that manages to be homely and special at the same time. I have stayed at Isle of Yoga as a b&b guest, as a participant on a yoga retreat, and run a yoga residential weekend myself there. In all three scenarios, I wouldn’t change a thing about the place, hosts or offering. The location is perfect too. Enjoy, whatever your reason for staying here (you will).”

“I had a lovely time teaching at Erling and Elaine’s place here… absolutely Incredible food! quite honestly some of the best nosh on a retreat weekend ever… Deep yoga, and belly laughs around the table in the evening too – great weekend!”

“Another wonderful weekend of leading a retreat at the Isle of Yoga. Erling and Elaine are fantastic hosts who provide a nurturing, calm and welcoming atmosphere in their lovely home. My students and I were taken great care of, nothing was too much to ask. Great meals too that have inspired me to cook more vegetarian dishes at home. Thank you!”

“I recently ran a retreat for a small group of students at the Isle of Yoga. I found that Erling and Elaine where very helpful in helping me arrange this and were very helpful in the run up to the retreat with any questions I had. The Isle of Yoga, was very easy to get to from South East. On arrival they were both warm/welcoming and their house is just beautiful. The yoga room was just what I was looking for and the food exceeded expectations. The house is in an ideal location to get away from it all – right by the sea. Thank you both again for a lovely stress free weekend and hope to see you soon.”
