"I have been on two of the Cyprus retreats and taken huge amounts away from both. I always thought I 'did' yoga prior to these retreats but I now realise I didn't really! With such a great teacher who truly cares, I have finally started to learn yoga; the mind, body and soul kind! Thanks Shama.” - Nikki Weclawek
"I attended the Full moon retreat in May 2016. I had the chance to experience this through my friend who now lives in England and knows the talented Shama (since I live in Sweden). A retreat for body, soul and mind, and I take many new skills, experiences and friends with me home." - Cecelia Diana, Sweden
"Shama's dedication to and love of yoga in all its forms shines through in all of her teachings; it's a privilege to share in this. Both of the retreats I have enjoyed in Cyprus have been hugely life enhancing." - Mandy McLeod
