What customers say about our retreats...

Eine wandernde Frau in den Bergen

I felt comfortable right from the start and felt that I was in the right place and that I would feel good. Samira, Peter, the group and the hotel staff were all super friendly and accommodating. I took away so many great positive impressions.

Five days of meditation and yoga in the middle of the Vorarlberg mountains. The retreat was led by Samira and Peter! Clear your head and do something for your well-being. Samira and Peter not only introduced us to meditation and yoga, but also explained everything in detail and corrected the yoga postures. A great experience for beginners and advanced practitioners. I would recommend it to anyone interested!

A yoga retreat in the most beautiful mountain landscape and a very hospitable, beautiful hotel. The lessons helped me to deepen my yoga practice and understand it better so that I could continue my practice at home. I really enjoyed it!

I really enjoyed my yoga retreat with Samira and Peter. It was very inspiring. I was able to integrate many suggestions into my everyday life at home. Samira and Peter explain everything very lovingly and well, I felt very comfortable all round. I should also mention the Hotel Valavier, very good food, beautiful wellness area, wonderful location. I will definitely be attending another yoga retreat with Samira and Peter. And definitely also a Reiki treatment, which did me a lot of good. I returned to my everyday life relaxed and invigorated.

It was a very good decision to book the yoga retreat with Samira and Peter at the Hotel Valavier in Brand! We were a great small group, in a beautiful and very warmly run hotel where nothing was missing. Lots of attention to detail, a very high feel-good and relaxation factor, super nice staff, great hosts and a varied gastronomic offer. The yoga retreat is definitely highly recommended and I hope that I will take a lot of it with me in my everyday life, and if not, I will be very happy to come back 😌

Another great yoga retreat. I benefited a lot from Samira and Peter and was able to take it with me into everyday life. Thank you for the beautiful walking meditation at 06.30 in the morning and the beautiful mantra quotes. I will be back again!

Ein weißer Hund sitzt auf einem Schotterweg

Samira and Peter are very professional, warm and helpful. I was not familiar with Sivananda Yoga before, learned a lot and made great progress in the few days. I will certainly attend another retreat with them.

Samira and Peter are wonderful teachers! The level of the lessons is very flexible and the amount of information is just right and not at all "missionary". Highly recommended!

Die San Francisco Bay Bridge bei Sonnenuntergang

My first experience with yoga was a complete success. The exciting, challenging, intensive and very entertaining yoga classes with Peter sparked my interest. I would love to come back, I can only recommend you.

The yoga retreat at the Hotel Valavier with Samira and Peter was relaxing, challenging, instructive and inspiring - in short, perfect all round! I can only recommend it to anyone and would book it again at any time.
