Carmen learned to cook her first recipes from her mother in Panama when she was only seven years old. Later, at 18, she learned how to cook delicacies and tasty dishes from India with the head monk at the Krishna temple, Hari Chakra Das. Carmen cooks for all the retreats at Mandala House. Carmen has a relaxed, laid-back, and cheerful way of sharing her cookery tips.
I had such a lovely time, the retreat offered the space and relaxation I was looking for and the treatments, classes, walk and introduction to the Krishna community were all just the icing on the relaxation cake! Although the entire team contributed to very special memories for us all, above all, It was Tim's warm, welcoming and accepting nature that put us all at ease with ourselves and each other and it truly was a pleasure to spend time with everyone there. Stunning location, and a program designed with love and care at a great price, I'm so glad I went.
I have visited lake isle retreats twice now and have just returned from the relax and rejuvenation retreat. This does exactly what it says and you leave feeling totally refreshed. The treatments are wonderful, the setting of the house is lovely, the yoga instruction is really fantastic. Most of all I have to say the food is just brilliant! Overall the retreat is excellent value for money and makes for a fun and interesting weekend away
