"An experience to remember "

Being part of a family that loves and supports you.. A place I will always remember, and hope to visit again. I have learnt so much in the month of the teacher training. The teachers are filled with endless amounts of knowledge and compassion. They strive to see you grow which I found very important in such an intense course. The food which was made by the karma yogis on a daily basis was always amazing.The location is exactly what you want if you want to have time to yourself and be still. I am very grateful to have had experienced this course with such amazing beings. I will always have a place in my heart for all the teachers, karma yogis and sisters that were on this journey with me. I highly encourage you to take your yoga path at OmShanti =]

"Don't be afraid of change"

The aura of the like minded people who were there the same time as me. I instantly felt like I was with my family. I was very appreciative of the opportunity to meet so many people.

I will also never forget the yoga session with Romina. It was invigorating. It was so 'out of the box' different

"Wasn’t what I thought it would be but took some positives "

I was looking for a break from work as Work has been super stressful, pushing me beyond my limits. The main things for me was to relax, re-energise and get back to myself.

At Omshanti there were many things I loved:

- the food was fresh,healthy, vegetarian/vegan, delicious and abundant

- David stood out to me as an instructor, he led my favourite meditation and yoga experience of my stay and I thought he had lovely energy.

- the scenery surrounding the house was unbelievably beautiful, and there are opportunities to go for peaceful walks in the sunshine.

- I would never have visited this town if it wasn’t for this resort and it was really a treat and so different to the fast paced city life I am used to in London

- I loved the workshop where we were paired up and used each other’s bodies to do the poses. I realised it had been some time since I’d connected with anyone in that way and it broke down a few barriers for me.

- it was surprisingly warm because of the heaters despite reviews that had said otherwise

- comfortable bed

"4 days of bliss."

A beautiful home filled with the most positive, caring and loving energy. The food prepared by the team was delicious and refreshing. I slept away from the house in the Yurk, was a rewarding and truly accomplishing stay. I just want to say from the bottom of my heart, thankyou you to every beautiful soul I met here, from teachers to other guests, my short time was everything i needed for that moment in my journey. I will be back for longer next time, 4 days wasn't nearly enough. Love and happiness, always.

"Om Shanti is a Beautiful place to help re-set yourself"

This was my first yoga retreat and I was really pleased!! The accommodation is beautiful, the ambience is tranquil and the location breath-taking, words can’t really do it justice. The whole energy in the house is grounding and the staff as a whole are very warm, welcoming and helpful, I loved the schedule its perfectly planned; initially I thought it was going to be too much but it wasn’t at all, you can take part in as much as you need to, I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience; the food is fresh, wholesome and nourishing and every meal time was a delight!

The vision and dedication of the Om Shanti community is admirable, they’ve created a very special place indeed!! I think I’ve found my re-set place in Europe!! I’ll definitely be returning!!

"A perfect place "

I loved the location, to be a 15 minute walk away to a small town, 20-30 min walk to a train station and an hour by train to Barcelona was perfect for a yoga teacher training. The mountains around us, so many nature walks you can do and the building is truly perfect. It felt like my home and it always will. I learnt a lot, the instructors are very kind knowledgeable and truly love what they do. the food is the best food you’ll eat!

Clear instructions were really helpful. Going at my own pace and capability was really emphasised.Being able to take walks in the beautiful forest and swim in the lake was such a bonus. Staying in such a beautiful monastery was very special too. It was really helpful to be picked up and dropped off at the train station.

Doing my 200 yttc with comunidad om shanti in Barcelona was one of the best decisions of my life. Over the month we became a real family and om shanti was our home. The training was exceptional, the teachers are full of knowledge and were constantly inspiring us. The location is stunning and the food is healthy and delicious. I would highly recommend for anyone to go there.

"Amazing"

I loved the atmosphere in the place. The volunteers welcome you with so much warmth that you immediately feel at home.

Yoga classes are only in the mornings, but it's quite powerful and a great way to start the day. The morning follows with free time to go hiking and discover the beautiful locations in the surroundings. Afternoons are chilled, with different workshops taking place, which was nice for diversity.

I absolutely adored the volunteers, the other guests, the house (super beautiful, clean and well maintained), the food (which is made with so much love!)...

The only down side was having to leave :)

"Om Shanti. A haven you need to visit!!"

All of the staff at Om Shanti are extremely kind and welcoming, I felt at home straight away! The food is amazing, fresh every day. But the best thing for me was the perfect balance between the yoga and meditation and free time to explore the surrounding area, or simply relax in a hammock. I have never felt more relaxed!!

"An Absolutely Amazing Experience "

This was my first yoga retreat and I must say my experience at Om Shanti was better than I could have ever expected. From the moment I walked in the door I felt a wave of love and peace wash over me. All the volunteers there are amazing and accepting people. You are treated as a family member from the second you arrive. The house was old and beautiful. It felt very peaceful and there were many places to relax and hangout. Everything was sparkling clean and I felt very comfortable. The food was incredible. Everything homemade at the house. I am vegan and they were happy to accomodate my dietary needs. The yoga and meditation sessions were very healing and relaxing. The workshops were informative and very useful. The house is surrounded by mountains and there are many beautiful hikes, such as a cave and waterfall. I spent one of the sunny days laying in the outdoor hammock and hiking and the rainy day I spent in the amazing living room reading and painting. I connected instantly with the other guests and felt like a big family. This experience was incredible and will stay with me forever. I wish I could have stayed longer than 4 days. I hope to return to Om Shanti in the near future!

This place was magical. The scenery was incredible and the people were magical. I have never felt more at home. I really enjoyed the yoga- I typically practice a power vinyasa style but here I learned a lot more about yoga Nidra a slightly slower and more purposeful flow. I really enjoyed learning and I was exposed to far more meditation than ever before which I am tankful for.

"Lovely Experience!"

I absolutely enjoyed my 4 days at OmShanti and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to reconnect with yourself in a beautiful place with beautiful and loving people around! We started our days with a session of yoga and meditation followed by a delicious breakfast. After breakfast or lunch we normally went for a 2-3h hike in the mountains (amazing views and so much to discover!). In the afternoon there was always a very interesting workshop - every day it was different - relaxation, yoga anatomy, meditation...

I met some amazing people, the atmosphere was great and all homemade meals were delicious. I really hope I will be able to come back again soon!

Thank you so much for this lovely experience OmShanti Team!

"Loved loved loved it"

From arriving at this most spectacular buildings in a breath taking location, this when experience was fantastic. I an new to yoga but that didn't matter, there was a mixture of abilities but as you are told this is your own personal journey. The team are welcoming, warm and very experienced. It literally feels like home within a few hours. I met some fantastic people I will stay in touch with. I have to mention the food. How they managed to produce such high quality, tasty, healthy food in abundance everyday I dont know. Never had a bad me and we all couldn't wait to eat and refuel on the healthy offerings. I told Sarah and Boris on many occasions they must write a cookbook, I know we would have all bought one. I will continue with my yoga and meditation journey and have since I left a few days ago. Totally inspiring, experienced, welcoming lovely people in a setting that will literally leave you staring in disbelief. I can't wait to return but for longer next time.

If you're thinking about going, go. If you're thinking about going for 4 days, go for 8!

Everything about this experience was bliss.

The building is so beautiful, with plenty of spots to relax and unwind.

The meals are delicious, filling, nutritious and inventive.

The yoga space is on the top floor with great light and views into the trees.

The people at Omshanti are highly skilled, passionate and generous with sharing their knowledge.

Thank you Omshanti xx

"Amazing retreat"

This was my first experience at a yoga retreat and I didn’t know what to expect before coming here.

I had the most incredible time. The food was delicious, very comfortable beds and lots of great chilling out areas meant I was able to completely relax and connect with myself on this trip. The morning yoga was amazing and I really enjoyed the workshops. The surrounding nature is beautiful and there are lots of walking trails to explore. We had a lot of free time between organised activities which suited me.

"Life detox"

One of the most amazing experiences I’ve had. The team were incredibly warm and welcoming. It was really well organised, with the daily schedule in reception, but still chilled. I enjoyed the great selection of veggie dishes for every meal plus the lovely company and roaring fire.

Although there different teachers each day, it was always Hatha and each extended it uniquely. I learned more breathing and meditation techniques, like yoga nidra. Best part was the Spring Equinox celebration, loved it!

"A life reset"

OmShanti for me was not a retreat, but rather a coming back home. From the moment I arrived, I felt just love, compassion and acceptance by both the fellow guests and volunteers. Love just oozes from all corners of this place via the classes, food and talks. It was the perfect place to embrace the inner and outer stillness that I was looking for. The volunteers are real people who work continuously with grace and devotion for the home and the community. I didn't know what I was looking for when I booked the retreat, but most definitely found it while I was there. Thank you, OmShanti, for the work you're doing in our community by spreading love and peace. I truly hope our paths cross again soon.

"Perfect retreat for yoga and relaxation"

- The people: the instructors and everyone in the house were so kind and always willing to help, very welcoming. It really felt like I was home!

- The location: this was an incredible highlight for me, the house is a fantastic place, always clean and very spacious, common areas had fireplaces and one could simply enjoy the views and the nature around the house or go for hikes with great nature all around!

- The food: an amazing array of delicious home made vegetarian food. I couldn't believe when I tried so many different meals, I was really surprised by the variety and most importantly the quality of the food, ranging from soups, home made bread and fruits. I simply loved it!

- The yoga and meditation classes: the amount of time spent on yoga and meditation were absolutely on point. We practised different types of yoga and this made the experience really enriching.

This has been the first time I participated in a retreat like this and I felt the time I spent was incredibly worth. With no hesitation I recommend Omshanti to anyone who wants to experience a unique retreat that combines yoga, meditation and free time, always surrounded by great people and nature. A massive thanks to Boris, Sarah, Ana, Ivan, Joyce, Janneke and April for being so amazing. I'd love to come back!

"Magical place full of love and light "

Om Shanti is a home away from home, where you will be surrounded with unconditional love and extra care from all the teachers and yogis there. The house is amazing - it’s a big medieval house dating back to 16th century in the middle of rustic nature, full of incense aroma and Ganesha paintings. Food is so amazing that you can eat your fingers off, and followed by some nice chat in front of the fireplace. Carlos is always up to show you some lovely treks in the neighborhood, so that you can go for a walk on your own as well. This place is highly recommend for all looking for peace, harmony, love, deepening yoga practice and enjoying high quality veggie food, and life in general! I still remember the taste of mijo bread that Xenia cooked for us - Yammi! Guys, miss you all and hope to have a chance to meet one more time! Sending much love!

"A loving & welcoming home away from home :) "

This retreat is the perfect place to relax and recuperate - As soon as I arrived at the beautiful house in its stunning surroundings I felt at home. This house is bursting with Love and joy, you can feel it straight away.

The community of people that run this place are just beautiful humans inside and out and are extremely accommodating. The yoga and meditation sessions were very attentive as the group was small. The food delicious and with great variety and the walks into the forest were just perfect.

This is the ideal place to come to get away from it all, take some you time and connect with nature. The schedule is enough but not full on so plenty of time to nap/read/walk/chat ect.

Overall a great experience and amazing value for money!

Thank you OM Shanti for your warm hospitality! :)

Everything was perfect. The house which is from the 11th century (!) is just so beautiful and it makes the whole experience even more special. The location - in the middle of nature - is just a blessing. Everyone is extremely nice and they make you feel as part of a family. Yoga practice is great but it’s beginners levels (which for me was perfect) but if you’re a pro you may find it too easy. The food is vegan and super delicious; they cook with love. The workshops are very interesting.

Overall just perfect experience. Highly recommend this place.

"Very nice experience"

I really enjoyed my stay at Om Shanti. The environment invites to forget about daily life back home. The people are very nice and open-minded. There is an relaxing atmosphere. I didn't have any yoga experience. I enjoyed the classes. They explain the concepts of yoga and they pay attention to perform the asanas in a good way. They correct you, if needed. They give advise to make the poses more comfortable or more intense. I liked their approach. It didn't matter which level you have. The house is very cosy and in a beautiful environment. I only stayed for a few days. It was actually to short to return totally relaxed. Now I know what to expect, I would go back and stay for at least a week to feel more benefits of it. Yoga is nice! Right now, I'm looking for a place to practise it at home.

Everything was amazing, from the food to the people giving the classes (very professional and nice) to the environment (beautiful nature, easy to go on long or short hikes and the village nearby) and the house itself which has a lot of places to relax, read and write. I would definitely recommend going to this place and than go for a week! I also read a review before going that said I should go for the 8 days instead of 5 and I really did not regret it! After a few days you start to get into it and become more relax, so if you are in doubt; I definitely recommend going for one week! Enjoy! :)

"Very good retreat"

The house was very nice, the team really good, excellent vegan food. The teachers have a good experience and give lots of different techniques. It was a silent retreat, which is quite an experience. Even if you cannot talk during 3 days, you share something with the group.

"ॐ perfect "

I loved everything about the Comunidad Om Shanti!

The spacious maisa and its beautiful garden, the mountain with its adventurous hiking paths and wonderful waterfalls, caves and forests, the caring and loving teachers, the incredible healthy and colorful food, the other guests with whom I had so many great conversations with, the energy and love we all shared.

We really enjoyed our stay here! With no or little expectations we got here and were really surprised by the loving atmosphere at the house, the great food, the beautiful house and surroundings, the good yoga and meditation classes and the nice people working and staying here. Would definitely come back and recommend it to others!

"Genial desconexión/reconexión en medio de naturaleza."

La amplitud y el encanto de la gran casona antigua de piedra y sus vistas al monte desde la zona común, donde poder descansar o socializar.

El entorno natural, para recorrer de paseo en los ratos libres.

La abundante comida vegetariana/vegana preparada de forma casera y con amor.

La sensación de familiaridad y armonía con los miembros del retiro y con otros huéspedes.

There was a really nice and light - and at the same time serious - atmosphere in the group as well in the staff. They are building up the place at the moment, and it was nice to experience the enthusiasm among them - most of them are volunteers. There were really nice walks. A few wonderful terraces with a nice view. The house was very clean. A beautiful building, beautiful rooms with furniture which fits. It was far better than the price for the 4 days. Also nice that it is easy to reach from Barcelona - everything worked fine with whatsapp and picking up and so on.

The people at Om Shanti are amazing and we feltvery welcome. The food is amazing and the house (an ancient 1100 years old one) simply beautiful. The team was cleaning on a daily basis and it was never dirty. We enjoyed the stay very much and would come back any time.

"Lovely"

It was lovely to get away from the busy working life. The house is at a perfect location, nice and quiet in nature!

The house is quite cold at this time of the year. They give their best to make it warm with gas heaters and fire, still bring warm clothes. For the night they have hot water bottles which is awesome!

The yoga is really good and intens! I‘m recommend people who just want to do yoga and don‘t want to dive in the the spiritual part of yoga look for something else. At Omshanti it is really spiritual.

The staff is loving, caring and really helpful, make you feel very welcomed and loved!

Thank you for this experience!

"After only a few days OmShanti feels like home, try it out!"

I loved the yoga classes and workshops - challenging but very informative and conducted in a loving atmosphere (thanks to hugasanas ^^) The food was beyond any comparison 100+/10.

"Grateful"

I'm so grateful for everyone involved in OmShanti for making this wonderful experience possible. The location is absolutely stunning and well taken care of. The rooms, bathrooms and living areas are very clean. The morning meditation and yoga are the best way to start your day. And if you want more than that, there were lots of workshops with extra yoga and/or meditation class like Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Pranayama,...all at your own choice and speed. What I can't forget to mention is the food: always delicious, creative, fresh,... absolutely great! In between all that you can relax, go for a hike, read in the hammock,,... everything your heart and body desires. All day you will be surrounded by lovely and warm people both staff and visitors. From day one it feels like a home, like a family.

Ivan, Anna, Joyce, Janneke, April - I will not forget you. Thank you Thank you Thank you.

Lots of Love - Ilse

"Quiet place, people who make you feel like coming home"

People who made me feel like home were really positive, open and calm. Old charming castle-like house in the woods directly beside national park, beautiful house and rooms, fireplace always running during winter. Fresh and creative mostly vegan food. Really lifechanging meditation, yoga and daily workshops.

"A holiday home full of love"

Every single member of the staff at om shanti is very loving and generous with their time. They all showed sincere interest and helped make my stay as wonderful as it was. It felt like being in a big family, where respect and love are ruling.

3 times a day they prepared a fully homemade meal, which was always (!) delicious.

There were different workshops in the evenings and I enjoyed learning all those things and connecting with the people here.

Thank you so much to everyone at Om Shanti!

It was a very beautiful and healing week for me with you.

"Perfect Place to slow down"

Omshanti is a place in the middle of the nature, totally peacefull and full of love. The people living there are very friendly and open minded, so you can totally be yourself. The yoga/meditation classes and workshops were a real blessing, given with so much dedication and profession. Also had a lovely massage. The environment, the atmosphere, the people and the classes were the ingredients for a lot of new deepening insights.
