Where do I begin.... I booked onto the retreat quite last minute and on a whim, wanting to take some time out for myself. From the moment I enquired, I was met with a warm, speedy response from Helen and just knew I'd picked a good one. This was only my second retreat and first in the UK, so I wasn't too sure what to expect, a little apprehensive since I was going on my own and not in any way a Yoga pro! Helen is a fantastic teacher and a wonderful host, she made us all feel welcome and relaxed from day one. Paired with the stunning surroundings and classic luxury of Waltham House, I felt instantly at ease. The vegan cuisine was outstanding, the daily schedules were well thought out and Helen ensured that the yoga classes were tailored for all abilities. I would highly recommend Helen and HD Yoga Retreat to anyone wanting an active yet chilled, entertaining and friendly time away. Thank you for a very special weekend.

I felt very comfortable with the group. I had the most relaxing and beautiful experience in the countryside. Helen was amazing for yoga classes each day, I learnt more about postures. Food was fresh and all vegan very delicious. I also found very good the availability of Helen' husband for traveling to and from to the railway station . We had also Yoga Q&A moment which was great to understand more . The accommodation incredibly beautiful with a big garden. Excellent everything

Helen is a fantastic yoga instructor and a wonderful host. Welcoming, friendly, good energy, relaxing, informative, organised, entertained and well fed (vegan style) are just some words (and I could go on) that I would use to describe my experience with HD Yoga. A Yoga Retreat with class and style yet down to earth and totally chilled out. I would totally recommend to anyone novice or not to join Helen on one of her retreats.
