Testimonials

Anne Maree was the most perfect host you could want. The retreat is in the most perfect setting, the food and atmosphere were ideal for chilling out and finding that ‘reset button’. Anne Maree provided variations in the yoga classes for the various levels that were in the class perfectly, and also for the philosophy and meditation classes. Anna, Switzerland. March 2018


'Wonderful first time Yoga Experience’

A great experience which was almost like a ‘one on one’ yoga lesson - very personal but professional. We were welcomed into their home with amazing hospitality.  Catherine, Sydney. April  2018


“Splendid getaway”

Everything was wonderful, the food, the company, the experience. I felt very accommodated for. The heating and electric blankets kept us very warm at night. Susan, Melbourne May 2018


My first yoga retreat. Anne Maree was the most beautiful, the most skilled, welcoming and warm host. Well organised weekend retreat covering many aspects of yoga, relaxed and catered for individual visitors. Food was amazing and enjoyed all together with lots of talks, laughs and shared wisdoms. Thank you Anne Maree for a beautiful experience. JJ USA. May 2018


Fantastic relaxing weekend! Anne Maree was absolutely amazing, the perfect host and yoga teacher! I gained a greater understanding of meditation and yoga. I was hesitant to come to the retreat on my own, but I’m so glad I  stepped out of my comfort zone! The location was beautiful loved meditating by the river and waking up for the sunrise. Highly highly recommend! Melissa, Melbourne. May 2017.


From start to finish we felt at ease and comfortable at this gorgeous yoga retreat.   The beautiful home with large picture windows has views of the surrounding bushland and is within easy walking distance to the main street of Lorne.  The yoga was taught in peaceful surroundings with the lounge room quickly converted to an idyllic yoga studio for classes .   Anne Maree was such a calm and patient teacher.  Her knowledge of yoga was clearly extensive and she has a wonderful ability to share her knowledge without forcing the information on you.  She will patiently seek out how much (or how little) you want to learn and will work within those parameters.  My husband and I personally wanted to absorb as much information as we could and Anne Maree was so generous with her teachings. The sunrise walk and guided nature meditation are not to be missed.  Anne Maree and Huseyin are brilliant hosts.  The Turkish food provided was delicious and plentiful. Mealtimes were an absolute highlight  and were just like sitting around a table eating and drinking with old friends.  You don't have to lift a finger and will feel incredibly spoilt!  We left feeling inspired to continue with our yoga practice, as well as feeling relaxed, invigorated and ready to return to the busy working week ahead. Alison, Melbourne.

"Really enjoyed my stay at Mango Lassi. I was there with girlfriends to celebrate my 40th. Anne Maree was so welcoming and accommodating. It was such a peaceful environment and the meals I must say to as delicious. The beach and river meditations where a stand out for me. Must say spectacular location near all amenities. Thank you for a wonderful weekend." Rachael, Melbourne. March 2017.  

Mango Lassi’s yoga and cooking retreat was one of the most relaxing, welcoming and uplifting retreats we’ve been on. Anne-Maree is an excellent yoga teacher and was happy to tailor the yoga sessions around our specific interests. Her hatha/vinyasa style was ideal for what were after and her meditation sessions were wonderful - especially the one in a beautiful, secluded outdoor spot amongst the trees! Anne-Maree’s a real pleasure to spend time with and the pace of the retreat was spot on. The yoga, coupled with the delicious turkish cooking class was such a treat and we can’t wait to do it all over again! :) Ash and Dan, Melbourne February 2017

'Not only do I feel I have had a physical workout, I also find that I am more relaxed and left the class in a peaceful state of mind.What has really had an impact is an experience I had during my very first class. This left me realising afterwards what a positive effect yoga had on me. It felt like I had experienced a high level of spirituality and peacefulness. A tranquillity! I felt purified and cleared of all negativity. What an experience!!!I also enjoy the physical side which leaves me with poses I can enjoy when at home, knowing which ones feel beneficial to my body and mind.Having an instructor like Anne Maree, with a calmness and soothing nature about them, helps put you in an open and tranquil frame of mind, which makes the journey of the class even more satisfying and beneficial'.

 Anne Maree instructed yoga classes in our office for a number of terms.    Unfortunately for us, a move of office meant that we no  longer had space to hold yoga in the office. This was to the  disappointment on many of our staff who loved her classes. Anne  Maree is an exceptional instructor (and I have been to many  different yoga classes in my time). Her classes were well planned,  interesting and catered for all fitness levels, which were very  varied in our classes. Coordinating the sessions with her was always  easy and she was reliable, punctual and professional. I would have  no hesitation to recommend Anne Maree for a corporate environment.  The biggest recommendation of all is that our staff still refer to  her as the best yoga teacher. If we were to be able to start classes  again at our work I would be contacting Anne Maree straight away! Sarah - November 2010


'Since doing Yoga, I have noticed many changes in both body and spirit.  I am clearer in thought, my mind is much quieter….I make decisions more concisely, I am more in tune. My flexibility and strength has increased, I am more aware of my posture'. Joanne
