"The Tarifa Yoga Retreat, was a first for me, I have to say it was one of the best things I've ever experienced, the villa, food, company, location was everything I had imagined and more. The yoga itself was varied and catered for all levels, I came back totally invigorated, calm, and ready to explore more of my practice. Vivien is a truly inspirational teacher, the best. Great fun - particularly practicing our yoga on the beach (watching the sunrise) and in the sea! I can't wait for the next one." 


"One thing is guaranteed - whatever my mood at the start one of Vivien's classes, it will be much improved when it finishes. As a beginner yogi I found Viv helpful, supportive and inspirational, and as I develop my practice she is always there to help me push myself but never in a forceful manner - I do it all at my own pace. I can even do a headstand now!
My emotional health is so much better now that I am a yoga regular but it is the improved strength and tone I see in my body, as well as the expected better flexibility, that has pleased and surprised me.
A word of warning, though - be prepared to become addicted to yoga with Viv! I really notice a negative difference when I miss classes."


"Being a complete yoga novice I have to say my first lesson at the gym was all a bit of a giggle and a blur; but 3 or 4 lessons in; I was hungry to "be better at yoga" and "get it right".  I soon appreciated that the only way I was going to really reap the benefits was to have some one to one lessons and thankfully I heard that Vivien was available to teach me.  A year down the line I am totally hooked and really look forward to my weekly lessons. Vivien is the most amazing teacher – clear, patient, kind and yet challenging.  Her enthusiasm for yoga is infectious and her knowledge incredible.  I can honestly say I can't think of anyone I'd rather have by my side at my practice and life without yoga now would be unthinkable.  Thank you Viv." 


"The yoga retreat in Tarifa was an absolutely fantastic week. The balance of yoga and time to do other activities was perfect allowing me to develop my yoga practice, learn new techniques, relax by the pool, walk to the beach and do some water sports. Vivien's approach to the retreat was great. Her enthusiasm to help us develop backed up by her tremendous knowledge and passion was infectious but not at all overpowering. I felt very relaxed as soon as we arrived and by the end of the week I was completely chilled out. Of course the amazing location with breath taking views of the Moroccan mountains and the ocean helped too. The villa and gardens are spectacular and there is plenty of space to have time on your own. The other, thing I must mention is the food that was prepared for us - what a treat! We had the opportunity to try many different cuisines and it is impossible for me to describe how tasty it all was. We ate every meal outside which is just such a luxury and made the food taste even better.I recommend this retreat to everyone. Vivien will make you feel comfortable and will help you at whatever level of yoga you are. I am very much a beginner but improved my practice and focus greatly. You will get so much out of it and come home feeling revitalised and ready for anything."


"Vivien has been my 1-1 yoga teacher for the past 7 months. She is very knowledgeable & flexes my clases to suit my needs on each particular day. Sometimes she works me very hard,  and sometimes I have a restorative class. I have greatly improved my tone,  strength and flexibility over this time and always feel rejuvenated afterwards. I would highly recommend her and the benefits that yoga brings to overall health."


"As a Scoliosis sufferer having tried many ways to reduce the pain without success, I turned to Yoga. Vivien encourage me physically and mentally to transform my well-being. I have not looked back (excuse the pun) I don’t mind admitting I was scared and didn’t think Yoga would work for me. But it has in so many ways. Yoga has changed my life."
