Just wanted to drop a note to say thanks for a great week last week. Atmosphere at the Villa is great, classes were outstanding. Have been inundated by questions from friends and family in the 24 hours I have been back – I have a feeling you will be seeing some of them later in the year… Thanks again and well done for a professional and friendly experience!
Dear Frauke and Lisa, I just want to let you know that attending the week with you in Fuerteventura has been life changing! Since returning to Lanzarote I have found an amazing teacher in Costa Teguise and I go twice a week and one is two hours and is ashtanga yoga (killer yoga!) I’m really enjoying it and I can feel my body changing already. I’ve been very brave as the class is all in Spanish so although I can’t understand it all, i am doing well because you and your instructors explained everything so well I know why we are doing certain things and have explained this to the teacher. (Also my Spanish will improve!) My many thanks to you and your team and especially Valentina who was so helpful and inspirational. Love Lucy x
My tai chi lessons with Paco exceeded my expectations. He is a wonderful teacher and a wonderful person. And his sense of humour was an unexpected bonus. I never thought I would spend so much time laughing in a tai chi class! Yet, at the same time, working hard, taking the lesson very seriously and making progress in my practice. All in all a very positive experience.
You are all fantastic, you made me feel incredibly welcome and I had a great week. Great food, classes and I feel very much refreshed. I would love to come back …
Dear Azul Fit team, This is a long overdue email to thank you all for making my Mum’s and my own stay so enjoyable! We very much enjoyed the island and the house, the warmth of your welcome and of course the quality of the teaching and of the food! As I said before I left, I’m confident that I’ll come back in a not-too-distant future 😉 In the meantime, be well and keep up the great work! Warm regards to the entire team.
From the moment we entered Azul Villa we instantly felt calmer. The retreat has a wonderful energy and ambiance, amazing views that stretch out to sea and each room has an individual theme incorporating amazing colours and textures. Once you step foot inside you never want to leave the peaceful sanctuary they have created. And in fact we only left the villa once a day to walk two minutes into the local village to pick up lunch from the bakery!
Jo, Frauke, Valentina, Luisa, Erika & H. Thank you does not cover the gratitude I have for all of your hard work and true loving kindness that you put into Azul. I came as a solo traveller – my first retreat! – full of the usual trepidation of not knowing what to expect, but these worries were diminished as soon as I met the team and walked into the lush oasis that is Azul. Everything here has been crafted with complete love, from the décor, the food (imagine all of the photos from healthy cook books you’ve lusted over being placed in front of you every night! Jo is a magician with her creative dishes and they are completely accommodating to any intolerance so you never feel strange or different) and the atmosphere they create. Every instructor and employee of Azul has left an irreplaceable imprint (Pilates imprint!) on my heart. I didn’t realise you could feel such love and honest care from strangers and they helped me fully realise the person I’ve always wanted to be. At Azul you can take it as relaxed or energetic as you like. I can guarantee you will never feel sensory numbness, I was constantly learning. The nutritional seminars with Jo are highly recommended and I was introduced to the realm of Ayurveda in a practical every day way which I have now incorporated into my life. Every yoga or meditation session went way beyond my expectations and became such a beautiful experience, if I tried to explain the feeling it would sound like a cliché but through both Valentina and Frauke’s enchanting ways they teach you how to reconnect with the world and yourself and the beauty of simplicity. Valentina is the most special yoga teacher and makes you feel like you are the only one in the room no matter your level. By the end of the week I was doing things I could never imagine! Both pilates and yoga are taught with such knowledge but mostly the time zooms by and you feel uplifted by every session. All classes are suited to beginner to advanced as the teachers home in on everyone as an individual and ensure you get the most of your class. Before I’d even walked out the door to go home Id booked to come back! Azul and my Azul family are so special to me. You will find yourself … and your pelvic floor.
