    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 ballance 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!

    The most wonderful way to do yoga & meditation in the home of yoga - It felt timeless and it couldn’t get any better than that! Judy & Saz are the most wonderful hosts – thank you!

    Hazel H

    Terrific holiday – wonderful yoga, sunrise meditations over the backwaters and sunset meditation on the seashore. Sunshine, delicious food, interesting trips, range of ayurvedic massages to try, great company and the flexibility to spend your time however you chose – what could be better?

    I came last year and will be coming again next year. A rich and exotic week with Yoga United feeling love, warmth, gentleness, calm, sun, sea sand, sights, insights. Excellent food and great coming together and connecting with a wonderful group of people. And of course…yoga…yoga..yoga – thanks Judy for an apparently effortless and seamless week of practice that has been an absolute joy! Om Shanti

    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!

    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

    I loved my room and the gardens, it felt like home. The yoga fit perfectly with what I needed in my life – inspiring and spacious enough to go to places inside which meant a lot to me and Judy always encouraged me to feel into myself – I will never forget feeling like a fish swimming in yoga. I’ve already signed up for the next retreat!

    Sheila F

    A wonderful ‘journey’ for the mind, body and soul – thank you!

    Christina C

    It was such a brilliant holiday in all aspects, the yoga, weather, people, food, and the wonderful relaxed feeling – a real holiday.Everyone was very helpful wherever we went. I can’t stop thinking about India, it had a great impact on me.

    Poovar Resort with its island setting on the peaceful and tranquil backwater of Kerala was for me the perfect place for a relaxing and restorative yoga week with Yoga United. If this had been my first trip to India I would certainly choose to do one or more of the add-ons suggested. It’s a good and safe way of getting to know India. The day trip organized by Saz to the temple/palace was lovely. Well organized, everything seemed to run smoothly, including the thali lunch and it was quite exciting being the only ‘tourists’ around.

    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

    Sue

    Just back from 8 days retreat at Poovar Island 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.
