    Review by Amanda Dunbar from Netherlands

    Wonderful Yoga Training in Italy!

    CONS Cons: Nothing that I could think of!

    PROS Pros: Antonia and Luigi are the most gracious and wonderful teachers and hosts! By limiting the group to a small amount of people, the focus was very one on one. Over the course of the week, the yoga teaching and training was very detailed and tailored to each student. The meditation training was something I needed more than I even knew! Allowing us to practice teaching together, helped to build our confidence day by day. Breaking up the days with morning and afternoon sessions allowed us to build stamina throughout the week. Mealtime was always a treat with delicious and healthy food prepared with local ingredients. I would highly recommend this training and look forward to begin teaching ASAP!

    Great experience

    PROS Pros: Luigi and Antonia are great people and made me feel very welcome. They make sure that they do not take too many people at once on the teacher training so that they can provide personal attention and that was great!

    Review by Sanne Kreugel from Netherlands

    CONS Cons: Ik had niet verwacht dat ik bij mensen thuis zou verblijven en de enige gast zou zijn. Dat was even wennen maar ik moet zeggen dat het eigenlijjk heel fijn was om niet met andere mensen bezig te hoeven zijn, en me alleen maar te laten verwennen :-)

    PROS Pros: Een fijne week met lekker en gezond eten, tijd voor ontspanning en intensief met je lichaam bezig zijn. Zowel de trekkings als de yoga lessen en meditatiesessies in de natuur hebben me veel rust gegeven. Heel fijn om even niks te hoeven.

    "Thank you Luigi and Antonia for feeling ourselves like at home in your nice village of Forino surrounded by the mountains. This was a great life experience and we found exactly what we were looking for: rest, fresh air, great Italian food and harmony. We will bring it back with us in Paris (with secret recipe of delicious gnocchi). Thank you!!"

    "Thank you for a lovely experience in Italy. I have learnt so much about healthy eating and having a good positive attitude, the yoga lessons really brought flexibility to my legs and arms and the focus on the breath was amazing. Your kindness and patience are very inspiring and I have really enjoyed my stay with you. Going to see so many amazing places in my short stay was such a nice treat. My body feels lighter and with the control of food I do not feel bloated and full as I did before. I highly recommend a stay with Luigi and Antonia as you will feel relaxed, positive,fantastic and great in your mind, body and soul."

    "I came to the lovely couple Luigi and Antonia for the 3 Days Yoga and Detox and can really say I am back on track now. I had much stress and was not treating myself kindly and properly. But the Yoga, trekking or walking, healthy, and delicious food, meditation, much sleep, and their coaching helped me a lot to get back my energy and to recognize how important it is to support my body and mind in a healthy way! Thank you again! Namaste"

    "Luigi and Antonia are really passionate about yoga and meditation. As a school teacher from Ireland, I joined the 8-day instructor lead course. I gained a lot of knowledge on food, nutrition, warm-ups, fitness exercises and also the importance of relaxing and unwinding the body. This will greatly help me in training my pupils and I hope to pass on the information to others. Thanking you. Olive Robinson"

    "Luigi and Antonia took personal care of me. I got the chance to relax, eat healthy food, do yoga and meditation, and learn about healthy eating. All my goals were met. Luigi and Antonia provided with all the support I needed. In addition, they took me to fantastic places in nature alongside some visits to a local market and cities. It is very nice to have a personalized service. I am so happy after this great weekend. I recommend Styleoga to everyone!"

  • Review by a traveler

    "The week we spent with Antonia and Luigi was challenging but delightful. They motivated and encouraged us to do our best, were great role models, and adjusted the program to truly meet our individual needs. I am especially appreciative of the understanding and attention they gave to Philip, as well as the healthy but fun cooking lessons! The treks were a combination of history and scenery with challenging exercise, and always uphill! The first couple of days our legs were particularly sore, but that was our goal and we improved fitness. Above all, Luigi and Antonia were charming, gracious hosts and made us feel right at home. I highly recommend their program and wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you!"
