"I had a truly fantastic week at the Amalfi Coast retreat in La Selva, Positano. Chloe and Christian are two of the most talented and patient yoga teachers I've ever come across and it was a pleasure to be a part of their classes every day. During the week I met some lovely people, ate some yummy healthy food and really made the most of a superb location. I couldn't ask for more from a holiday and I am already pining for the daily yoga classes and stunning views!!" - Jenny, UK
