We are David and Juliet and we have been hosting holidays since 1996. We really take care to offer you the best service we can. Before running holidays ourselves we enjoyed yoga holidays in Wales and from what many people say we know how to create enjoyable and supported holidays.
Our background helps us: We met at work in 1974 and our work was with people: David had worked in personnel management in the steel industry and the NHS. In both he counselled people on making changes and coping with change in their lives. We see this here: many of our guests come to us smiling, but with hidden stresses and illnesses. Often their problems relate to changes that have taken place or which are feared. David's skills have never been more useful. Juliet worked in interviewing and training for several years and draws on those skills to be perceptive in consultations and in her teaching of yoga.
Our move to Crete in 1995 changed our way of life hugely and it was yoga, which we had begun in 1991, that was our guiding light. Without yoga life's uncertainties could have been overwhelmingly stressful. In preparation for the move we focused on gaining some health skills for our own benefit. However, we found we enjoyed using our new abilities and felt empowered by being able to look after ourselves and so we formalised our learning with professional qualifications. Then we could offer our services to you, our guests.
Our time in Crete has led us to explore the countryside, so we could offer you walks, and also to explore our inner selves – no longer could we go to a weekend workshop or buy a self help book and the Internet didn’t exist for us – so we had to look inwards to find solutions to life challenges. This shows in our treatments where we have reflective moments to think how best we can serve you.
Our yoga holidays have given us access to the teachings of many different yoga practitioners and many styles of yoga. This led to Juliet deciding in 2003 that she was ready to learn to teach yoga and she now teaches in the broadest sense of taking yoga into life.
We feel humbled that our service has brought pleasure to so many people and that people come again and again, and have become long term friends. We hope that's what you will be too.
