Wonderful teacher Review by Richard K
Each year, you blossom into a more wonderful teacher Judy, love your style! It has been a privilege to work with you and the testimony is in the numbers who come back year after year. I certainly will be! (Posted on 28/04/2017)
Depth and unexpected insight Review by Jane D
It was wonderful to meet you and all those lovely people you seem to draw towards you with kindness, warmth and compassion - I can see why you have such a devoted following. I particularly enjoyed the ‘peripheral stuff’ - not the classic yoga but the ‘other stuff' which created a great deal of depth and unexpected insight which will stay with me (Posted on 28/04/2017)
Loved every minute Review by Margaret
Just such an amazing holiday. Loved every minute. I was so ready for it & really it was the best thing since sliced bread. I have come back feeling restored, positive & a nearly new woman!
I can't thank you enough Judy, you've got me back on track.
Lots of love to you both

Fantastic experience Review by Sue
Just back from 8 days retreat with Judy and the Tamil Nadu Temple tour add on, my first visit to India. I was a newcomer to Judy’s class when I signed up for this, encouraged by her warmth and her teaching methods. The resort was excellent and the whole trip a fantastic experience, especially with the contrast and the temples with Saz and his local friends as guides. (Posted on 28/04/2017)
A wonderful mixture of Yoga with Judy and India Review by Del
My first holiday with Judy was also my first experience of India. I travelled with my mother, in her late seventies, and we were both made very welcome. I loved it so much, I returned the following year to join the holiday again. Judy's teaching was both inspirational and interesting, with her skills and experience shining through in her classes. The balance of Yoga, sight-seeing and relaxation were perfect. The Ayurvedic massages of Kerala are so restorative that you can see the tension in the group members being massaged away as the days go by. Yoga, God's Own Country and massage all in one perfectly wrapped holiday - what more could you want! (Posted on 28/04/2017)
