“Sandra's yoga and meditation retreat is one of a kind: a unique concept where one can truly find union with oneself in the calmness of the desert. The quiet nights, the powerful meditations, the deliciously nutritious food and the gracious hospitality from our Beduin hosts was unmatched.  My experience during this retreat was absolutely magical and I cannot recommend it enough: a journey of a lifetime, and something that I will never forget.”

— Nadine, April 2022


“I really enjoyed my retreat in Wadi Rum with Sandra. We did yoga, energy healing, Thai massage and therapy with horses. The whole retreat was comfortable, my needs were met and I experienced a deep connection to myself, the beautiful place I was in, and to Sandra. She made the retreat super special and meaningful, she is a wonderful authentic lady who truly cares. 

I highly recommend retreats with her”
