Charlotte Mulvany

Charlotte started her journey with us as a young yogini and volunteer in 2012, a six-month experience which quite literally changed her life. Having learned a new, simpler way of living, she committed to return to London, a place she had previously turned her back on, to continue a career in media which she had once tried to escape. Her time away from her ´life´ had taught her that she wasn’t defined by a place, a job, or her things, and that she always had a choice. Yoga became her compass, an internal light which when strong will shine through even in the big smoke.

"Relaxation and fun at Villeverde "

The yoga classes provided by Rachel and Valentina were very good

In particular the energy and approach by Rachel was excellent

Food was very tasty

Penny Phillips

from Great Britain, July 2017

It was all very good. Pilates circuit class was a little disorganised. It could easily have been improved though. Yoga sessions (being a yoga beginner)were OK. I would have preferred more action less meditation although I appreciate that may not have been everyones choice. The yoga did seem to go from doable to impossible (for me) without a lot in between. I also appreciate that the abilities of the attendees was very diverse and therefore difficult for the instructors.

Food was great, accommodation was great, good location.

The fellow attendees and all the Azul staff were great company.

"Absolutely marvellous!"

When I booked this retreat, I thought it was quite expensive, but in reality it showed out that it was not. The quality of everything was extraordinary. Also Rachel has a big heart and an honest will to make everyone comfortable and satisfied. It is obvious in her way of communicating with everyone and also in her big efforts to organize the yoga classes and all the activities to really make us experience India and Goa. Also Lisa Willoughby that held many yoga classes was brilliant. The yoga classes were designed to fit the group and the daily status on all of us and created a feeling of that every class was just meant to be for me.

I also have to mention the resort itself that was a paradise.

Now that I know how much Rachel and Lisa do to make you happy with the yoga and India experience, I regret that I did not join the extended trip to Mumbai after the retreat in Goa.

"Amazing time"

The whole package was great value for money and I loved meeting nice people.

Joanna Townend

from Great Britain, January 2018

The food was amazing and plenty of it. I'll miss the breakfasts. I never knew that vegetarian food could be made so different and tasty. I am a true meat eater and didn't miss meat at all. the chefs were just amazing.

Getting out into the hills with the pack lunch was great too. There are a few volcanos on the doorstep which we scaled. We also hired bikes out and got out to the beach on both sides of the island. It was just great fun. Rachel took us on an old river bed to a costal village on the bikes.

It was all just perfect. Claire made everything hassle free and nothing was too much trouble.

"A relaxing week with lovely people "

The hotel was lovely, very friendly staff, great pool and outdoor area and a fabulous setting for a yoga retreat. Andrea was a great instructor, very knowledgable and passionate about yoga. The retreat attracted a fantastic group of people- a diverse mix of ages and very easy to get along with. There were also some fun activities that were offered in between yoga classes, this included a trip to the city centre of Oia, a hike from Fira to Oia and a sailing trip.

"Surya retreat experience"

The retreat holiday experience at Azulfit Surya retreat was amazing and just what I needed to bring peaceful calmness and balance into my lifestyle. The whole team at Azulfit Surya retreat are so nurturing and willing to help. Their welcoming personalised approach creates the perfect ambience for a relaxing and truly enjoyable experience. The nutritious and delicious cuisine was an additional feature which is exclusive to this holiday. Every practice session introduced a different aspect of yoga or pilates to keep us engaged and challenged for extending our learning experiences. Fabulous week during which my husband and I met many interesting like-minded people and made new friendships.

I found the whole experience outstanding. The welcoming team who were always friendly and focused on you individually. The Dedication of the instructors was infectious and makes me want to do so much more.

I feel so better after a week of yoga, health food, beach life and nice people. All the staff is very kind and try to satisfy every request. The location is perfect and in Fuerteventura there are so many thing you can do that can fit every expectation. The yoga classes were various and created an harmonious mix: vinyasa, yin yoga, yoga nidra. kundalini, gong bath... I loved in particular the classes of Elena, a very careful teacher, and the passion of Frauke. The morning excursion to a volcano was spectacular. Thank you everyone, I will never forget this experience! Highly recommended!

Michele Macari

The pilates and yoga classes were excellent, food was also amazing. I found having a room with no toilet a bit inconvenient. Staff and management and restaurant team were a joy, and being the only male in the group proved to be fine, I even took the kundalini class, meditations and relaxation classes were fantastic too.

"Azulfit Yoga, Pilates and Meditation Retreat"

I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the retreat. It is a perfect combination of Yoga, Pilates, meditation, nutrition and relaxation.

The retreat is in a perfect location surrounded by beautiful volcanic moutains. The energy and ambience of the Suraya retreat make it a perfect place to relax and unwind. The accommodation and facilities are fantastic. The staff at the retreat are so friendly and helpful, they made me feel welcome from the very start and looked after all guests superbly. The food is so yummy and prepared with love and passion by the staff.

The standard of teaching is excellent and my practice has a improved as a result of the very talented teachers.

I left the retreat relaxed and full of happiness and positive energy. I have taken away so many aspects of the week and put them into my daily life, I really feel that these changes are enhancing my life. Thank you to everyone at the Suraya Retreat!!

Karin Svardmark

from Spanish State, July 2017

Eveline Van Baalen

from Netherlands, January 2018

The place is filled with kindness, love and laughter! Everybody was so nice and caring, the food was excellent and made me feel very healthy. Plenty of activities to participate in but I also liked the fact that everything was completely optional. The quality of the lessons was also great and I loved the fact that the lessons were not too serious and everybody could participate at their own level.

I would like to thank all the lovely people and the other guests at AzulFit for an amazing week!

"toller Urlaub mit tollen Leuten"

Es war ein super Urlaub. Der Yoga- und Pilateskurs war für jeden geeignet, sowohl für Anfänger als auch für Fortgeschrittene, und die Trainers waren sehr gut. Es hat sehr viel Spass gemacht.

Der Staff ist sehr freundlich und sie haben uns zahlreiche Tipps gegeben, was man auf der Insel noch machen kann.

Das Essen bei Azulfit war sehr lecker, Valeria's Pfannkuchen sind die besten.

Die Lage des Lotus -Retreats ist sehr gut, sehr nah am Strand. In der Nähe gibt es viele gute Restaurants. Nach dem ersten oder zweiten Tag bei Azulfit fühlt man sich wie in einer großen Familie. Mit den anderen Teilnehmern haben wir uns sehr schnell befreundet und wir sind jeden Abend alle zusammen Essen gegangen.

Wenn man Urlaub bei Azulfit macht, hat man alles: Sport, gutes Essen tolles Wetter, man trifft neue Leute und sammelt internationale Erfahrung :-), und man spricht sehr viel Englisch (aber auch andere Sprachen, es hängt von der Herkunft der Teilnehmer ab).

Ich komme wieder. :-)

Azulfit team: Liz – thank you so much for your patience with me and helping me to organise staying longer - you have been so helpful to me. Thank you. Valeria – you have taught me so much about healthy cooking. I owe you a lot and really appreciate you taking the time to show me how you cook. You work so hard cooking for us and I want you to know that you are so appreciated. Thank you. I will continue to cook this way at home. Luisa – you are such a beautiful ray of light. You have really touched my soul in the reiki massage. It was really emotional for me and I learned so much about myself. You have really helped me on the road and for this I cannot thank you enough. Sara – thank you. It has been a really hard journey/life lessons for me to keep going and not give up. I have always given up at the first hurdle and you have been so patient in pushing me to believe in myself and my abilities. I CAN DO IT. Thank you.

Again thank you so much. You will never know how much you have done for me. I didn’t realise how lost and blocked I was until I came here. I loved spending my birthday with you all. Thank you, Sarah’
