Hi Free Spirit! Just wanted to let you know that I had a great holiday at Source of Light with Emma Conally-Barklem. I think I've been going on holidays with you for the last 13 years or so and this was one of the best. Emma is a great teacher - knowledgeable, authentic and teaches from the heart.
Betty and Richard were very welcoming - the food and treatments were amazing. I will likely go back next year also.
Thanks for organising another great trip. Best wishes

Hi Debbie Just to say that our week at Source of Light was excellent. The food, accommodation, and weather were top notch: and the standard of Yoga teaching with Ginny Haswell was absolutely superb.
Tony and Jan - July 2016
Dear Free Spririt, I am just back from the retreat with Jane Manze at Source of Light. Just wanted to say that it exceeded all my expectations, I really, really enjoyed it. I am an experienced yogi and a teacher as well and I have seen a lot but these people, Jane, Richard, Betty, they were all so genuinely kind, they really cared to make things nice, comfortable, to make us feel welcome and safe.
Will definitely travel with you again.
With warmth, and thanks,
I have just experienced one of the best weeks that I have ever had.
I have been on yoga retreats before but this one was entirely different, it was a retreat in every sense of the word rather than a holiday. The food was delicious - fresh, imaginative and healthy; with at least one raw food dish daily. So yummy, I miss the food already! Care and love went into every dish and any allergies/intolerances were catered for
Thanks again to all of you that helped make my week so special. I very much hope that I will see all of these shiny, happy people again.

Hi Jilly, I would just like to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. Richard and Betty are great hosts. The food was outstanding. The yoga/pilates/chi kung combination was great - 1.5hr sessions swept by and Kathryn style of teaching was perfect for the setting - she gave options for people at all levels. I also have to add that I thought the holiday was good value.
I have just returned home from Source of Light and just wanted to let you know how fabulous it was. The place was beautiful and Richard and Betty so welcoming.
Richard's cooking was amazing. I have never eaten so well as a vegetarian.
But the real treat was Kathryn's yoga. She was great. Her "yoga flow" has left me feeling stronger, more stretched and generally healthier. I would not be able to recommend her strongly enough. I just hope that at some point in the future I can attend her classes again.
Do please pass my thanks on to her.
just wanted to say thanks for a great week in Spain last week (Kathryn Banks). I loved the combination of yoga and pilates and tai chi - I wish more people did that. I have had some back problems which mean I need to be careful with some forward and back bends. Kathryn was always able to offer alternatives and I just did what I could. Nice group of people and I liked that it was not "her" group. I expect that could also be fine but it was nice that no one already knew each other, so we were all in the same boat. Wonderful wonderful centre and I will definitely be looking to go back there. Great food and such a lovely location and nice people.I walked every day except one, had some treatments and although it is quite remote, it doesn't feel isolated or boring. I can't speak highly enough of the food - really imaginative and tasty and good value I I look forward to going back, hopefully next year, perhaps with some friends. Thanks again, and for fitting me in at quite short notice.
I just had to let you know what a fantastic week I have experienced at "Source of Light " in Spain. My first ever solo Yoga holiday! It felt like an exciting adventure was beginning. And it was...The location was stunning and the accommodation was great. Betty and Richard were lovely, welcoming hosts and the food was AMAZING! The group of women I shared the holiday with were fabulous. We all got along really well and enjoyed spending time together. We have already been in touch with each other within a day or two of returning! The yoga was wonderful and Kathryn was a lovely, inspiring teacher. Yoga for joy it certainly was! This holiday is one that I would highly recommend and I would definitely go back.
Thanks a million!
Best wishes, love and light,
We've just had a wonderful week of sunshine, fabulous food and inspiring yoga at Source of Light, Malaga, Spain. I felt at home immediately, there wasn't a settling-in period. Richard and Betty have created a welcoming haven, and the little extras they provide make a world of difference, large beach towels for around the pool, hand wash and shower gel in every room. Even though they have therapies on site, they kindly went out of their way to book a massage for me from a local therapist! The food was inventive, healthy and colourful and always had oohs and arrhs from around the dinner table. Our yoga sessions with lovely Jane were outstanding, and even though there was always the opportunity to do just as much as you were comfortable with, you always wanted to make progress and try that bit harder. Hope to be able to book again with Free Spirit.
