“Alexandra Redmond is a very fine yoga teacher. Her lessons are intense, with focus on postures that suit the participant best, good breathing, and spiritual balance. During Nidra Yoga and Mindfulness her voice is a wonderful and unforgettable guide. What I also appreciate very much is that she teaches only small groups, even if the group consists of only one person, in this case only me!
The location was terrific: a beautiful hotel, near a fine, not overcrowded beach, beautiful spacious rooms, and excellent food. Besides, nobody should miss having massages. They are a great experience. I will certainly go back.”

“I had an amazing week with Yoga in Sardinia. Everything was absolutely perfect. The yoga and meditation classes with Alex were inspiring, relaxing, and wholesome. Alex is a great teacher. She was so friendly and caring towards everybody and really took the time if there was anything you wanted to ask, talk about, or practice some more. She’s open about her own experiences in life and the way yoga and meditation helped her, which was especially inspiring for me.
Furthermore, spending a week at Galanias Hotel was fantastic. With beautiful surroundings, delicious food, and friendly staff, I couldn’t ask for more!”

“My experience with the Yoga and Mindfulness Retreat with Alex at Galanias Hotel was perfect and fantastic. From the first contact, Alex was very quick to respond and she hung in there through all the exchanges required. There were some glitches in the online payment setup that I hope get fixed, but all totally worth the extra effort.
The retreat itself was just what I needed. The combination of yoga, mindfulness practice, Pranayama and Yoga Nidra was phenomenal – Yoga Nidra was new for me, and I love it.
Alex herself is a person who “walks her talk” and has a lot of personal experience to back up what she offers, and plenty of humor and openness along the way. For me, with back and hip issues, what we did was tailored to my needs, and at my level of yoga (beginner), I felt perfectly supported. I’m looking forward to implementing some of our practice into my day to day life.
In addition to the above, the location is incredible! The pagoda where our work took place is so beautiful, and the view can’t be beat. Even in the heat of July-August, the breeze was perfect.
And the Galanias Hotel – wow! Unbelievable food, really beautiful aesthetics, with incredibly friendly and charming staff. The walk to the beach is also easy (you pass a fruit stand along the way) and the water is so clear – a perfect way to recharge your batteries and get rejuvenated and treat yourself to affordable luxury!
I would definitely love to go again and recommend this without hesitation to people at my level (for more advanced levels, I don’t know).”
