Some kind words from our Guests:
"Attended Sanctuary Hill's Body Wisdom retreat and it was just what I was needing. A weekend out of the hustle & bustle of ordinary life to reset, recharge and reflect on what matters most. Bhavani & Ram have created an incredible environment and experience with everything you need to nurture body mind and soul. I recommend highly!" Caitlin from Body Wisdom 2022
"Thank you so much for a really fabulous weekend. You are such a talented couple/duo and what a joy to be able to visit and experience your little piece of paradise you have created.
You have energized my yoga practice and inspired me to pursue a healthier lifestyle.
So thank you both for sharing your very special space with us and spoiling us with your amazing talents. Ram as a fellow chef I thoroughly enjoyed every morsel you made and knowing that it tasted amazing, beautifully created and served just like a restaurant. The bonus for me was these divine meals were so healthy for us. Bhavani your yoga classes were so skillfully planned allowing a group of different levels of expertise to enjoy a stimulating and restful class which everyone could enjoy. I can't thank you both enough for an amazing weekend. " Nikki from Winter Wellness 2021
"My husband and I took our first trip to New Zealand from New York. He planned the whole trip and wanted to surprise me with a healthy yoga weekend retreat- and found Sanctuary Hill. I have been to many yoga retreats around the States and follow a high Raw Vegan diet. I am usually disappointed in the quality of food on most retreats, so I always carry my own supplies. I did write that I ate Raw, but didn't expect much. I was overwhelmed by the quality of the weekend! The beautiful location - house and yoga studio, the hikes, workshops on food, health and nutrition, the details towards everything. Above all,I was blown away by the quality of the food- Ram is a professional in every way- the food was beyond healthy, (fermented and activated) and it looked like a painting on our plates!! The quality was comparable to an upscale Vegan restaurant in NYC. Ram and Bhavani were excellent hosts. I would highly recommend Sanctuary Hill to anyone that wants lovely yoga and meditation classes, fun hikes,educational lectures and excellent food to "live" for. We hope to be back someday!" Melissa from Food for The Soul 2019
" We are so humbled & honoured to have been invited to share & teach in your most beautiful Sanctuary Hill studio. Surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature, you have created a sacred and precious space for your wonderful yoga community. It truly is a sanctuary, reflecting the love & commitment you have invested to make your dream a reality. It was an absolute pleasure to collaborate with you both & we look forward to return soon" - Karin Sang & Marcus Geiss from Yin Yoga Therapy
" Bhavani and Ram have created a magical space that really lets you unwind. The food was amazing and their hospitality was second to none. Will definitely be back!" ... Kathryn McDonald at Women's Retreat 2018
" I'm just back from a wonderful weekend of feeling nourished, restored and nurtured at Sanctuary Hill. The yoga was fantastic, the food mouthwatering, the sheets were crisp and white, the towels soft and the attention to detail was wonderful. I really enjoyed the bush walk too. The mediation classes were really insightful and had a wonderful joy about them. The restorative yoga with Frances was true bliss and Bhavani helped me do my first headstand (for a few seconds). I came away from this retreat feeling energized, detoxed and once again ready to practice yoga and mediation on a regular basis. Truly a great experience. I would recommend their retreats to anyone who values luxury and nurturing :o) "...Ida Kelp from Meditation Retreat 2018
"Just a note to say Thank You for a wonderful retreat last weekend. I arrived feeling nervous and excited about what lay ahead and left feeling nourished (physically, mentally & spiritually) and inspired! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and wisdom and for being such passionate, kind and genuine hosts. " Claire at Winter Wellness 2018
