High Praise for Sole Yoga Holidays
"My time in Morocco with Sole Yoga Holidays was challenging, invigorating, inspiring and so much fun! Everything was perfect. From the location to the twice daily yoga practices to the excursions, I had an amazing time and will definitely join Shari (a wonderful teacher and person) on a future holiday."
- Lisa, New Jersey, U.S.A.
"I just wanted to thank Shari & Sole Yoga Holidays again for such a wonderful time in Santorini! I think about it every day and wish I could go back. You hit the jackpot in our accommodations from the villas to the people who ran the place and the time of year."
- Sarah, California, U.S.A.
"This yoga holiday was literally paradise! Shari had everything perfectly arranged for us so we could just relax and enjoy. She is a truly inspirational yogi and the classes everyday left me feeling stronger and calmer than ever. The location was nothing less than magical, nestled in the olive groves overlooking the sea, and it was so fun to explore the coast and town. The food was to die for- all fresh, home cooked meals and Shari was great at catering to everyone's tastes and needs. I made such beautiful new friends in this week and can't wait to go on another trip with Shari, in fact- I never wanted to leave!"
- Tessa, Adelaide, Australia
"...an incredible retreat experience - from the beautiful yoga classes, to the delicious food and gorgeous accommodations...it is an opportunity to get away from it all and to do something awesome for your mind, body and spirit! Totally recommended!"
- Lauren, Florence, Italy
"If I had to sum up my experience with Shari and Sole Yoga Holidays: PERFECTION. Shari's expertise in yoga and her planning really made this experience more than I could ever expect. She's a beautiful person inside and out and the people I met during the retreat were too. The yoga classes were fantastic. In a week, I was able to notice more definition in my body and my practice definitely became stronger. I was grateful to see Italy and fall in love with its beauty thanks to Shari. I will definitely be joining her in Morocco!"
- Melissa, New York City, U.S.A.
"Sole Yoga Holidays Yoga & Art Retreat in Florence was an incredible opportunity to feel great, tour the beautiful city of Florence and get a sweet taste of the la dolce vita lifestyle of Italians. The yoga was the perfect soulful way to start and end the day, the tours were informative & fun, the traditional food tasting was wonderful and varied--I couldn't of asked for anything more. Thank you Shari for a wonderful weekend!"
- Cassandra, New York City, U.S.A.
"The retreat was the best decision I ever made. The instructors were awesome!"
- Anna, Strasbourg, France
"My partner and I had a lovely time in Florence with Sole Yoga Holidays. Shari was a kind and welcoming host. She had planned an itinerary that was a perfect combination of yoga, art, food, and wine. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we are definitely considering booking another of her retreats."
- Fiona, London, U.K.
"I had never been to a yoga retreat nor had I traveled on a holiday on my own. This was an extempore idea, and it turned out absolutely great, more than I expected! I had a great time in Positano with Sole Yoga Holidays. Shari was an excellent tour leader, with amazing skills to get everything working and her yoga lessons were a perfect match to my "yoga needs"! The whole week was planned in a balanced way with yoga, some excursions and having a good time, but also an opportunity for those who wanted just to take it easy, read a book etc. La Selva was as expected, a place hidden from the crowds, an amazing view, which one could not get enough of...this was an unforgettable experience. The food was delicious and company superior, just perfect in every way!"
- Ani, Finland
