"Absolutely amazing experience"

We loved these 3 days. The retreat is a combination of challenging yoga lessons, relaxing meditations and mind expanding therapies. Donovan tries to push you to the limits but at the same time consideres the abilities and previous experience.

My wife and I did a 3-day Yoga retreat in Hoi An, Vietnam in December 2017 as we wanted to stay active on our 2-week vacation in Vietnam.

My wife had few yoga lessons in the past but nothing intensive. I did no yoga at all before and generally, my opinion was that yoga is just for everyone scared of doing hard workouts. But when I saw Donovan and the way he taught yoga - my opinion changed completely. That guy is a beast. :)

By complete accident, we were only the two of us tutored by Donovan during these 3 days. Those 3 days have absolutely changed my mind towards yoga. The combination of the physical activities with Donovan's spirituality made it an extremely valuable experience that I haven't found ever since.

In these three days we also had a Tok Sen massage and two Reiki sessions. The Tok Sen massage was very interesting experience and it's a shame that this is very rare kind of massage not found everywhere. The Reiki sessions really opened a spiritual path for me, which I am following ever since.

So, are you looking for a unique experience? Go visit one of Donovan's courses.... you will not regret it.

I attended both, classes as well as a reiki treatment with Donovan and in my opinion the best way to describe his work is: he is authentic.

I felt being in good hands with someone who not only knows what he is doing but is also passionate and real about it.

There is no judgement in his class but only appreciation for sharing and showing up. Amongst a scene that is more and more marked through profit oriented and superficial people, it is a pleasure to work with Donovan, trust him.

“Dancing with Dharma is a flow that brings peace and connection. I participated in Donovan’s classes in Sri Lanka and I felt drawn to learn more through his diverse range of teaching expertise. Donovan’s commitment to the practice radiates; and he is adept at facilitating students growth, whatever their current level in yoga.

His choice in chill background music also added to the class dynamic (as contrast to classes where music is jarring and a distraction). I highly recommend his classes for anyone seeking a deeper practice.”

My experience at the Dancing with Dharma retreat in October 2017 was beyond my expectations. I learned so much about yoga practices and was able to strengthen my body and mind. My alignment definitely improved and I was able to do some poses I’ve never done before.

I loved that the retreat felt very personal. I felt like I was doing my own individual practice every day and the instructors tailored their instruction to each student’s needs. It was amazing!

I would have loved more massage treatment options and would have paid extra for it. The reiki session is something I’ve never experienced before and made the retreat unique and special.

The food was perfect, the music complemented the yoga and I was relaxed and restored from a stressful work environment for the entire week. This feeling of calm, relaxation, and positive stillness followed me for months. It is May of 2018 and I still feel like I’m benefiting from what I learned at the Dharma retreat.

I would absolutely recommend this workshop to anyone. I did feel like it was intended for more advanced yogis, which was nice because I felt like I learned more than I would have at a beginner retreat. I appreciated the challenge but loved that I wasn’t pushed too hard and could individualize my practices every day.

There was a little too much meditation for my liking as I have a hard time concentrating, but maybe it was for the best! Next time, I’d love to be exposed to specific types of yoga for longer such as yin and yang.

My only request would be more massage, as the retreat was extremely relaxing, so it would have been nice to extend that relaxation.

The instructors were both very experienced and that’s part of the reason I chose this retreat in particular is because I know that Donovan is very experienced and knows his stuff. I feel like a better yogi and am confident that I could instruct a yoga flow with the foundations I learned from this retreat.

Thank you.
