The yoga retreat this June in Spain was a fantastic experience. JC has a remarkable way of including everyone in the group and putting everyone at ease, whilst guiding your inner yogi to reach further and achieve more. The small group of 15/16 had such fun during the week, and JC makes sure everyone works to their own ability and adjusts the programme to suit. You can tell JC enjoys teaching and sharing his knowledge, and he puts a lot of effort into organizing a full timetable which you can join or not as the mood takes you. We all felt relaxed but rejuvenated at the end of the week. The retreat exceeded my expectations and my husband who hasn’t been doing yoga for very long thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thank you JC for all your love, care and attention to detail.
This is my second visit to JC’s retreat in Andalucia and I will go again next year. The villa has uninterrupted views of olive groves, on rolling hills, in every direction. The Shala faces a mountain over which the sun rises during morning meditation. It is utterly tranquil and beautiful.
Steffie and Steve and lovely hosts and provide, clean and comfortable rooms, delicious breakfasts, lunch and dinner. There is a lovely pool, jacuzzi and ample day beds, hammocks and quiet shaded spots to read or relax. There is an extensive honesty bar for those of us that like to undo some of the good work!
The excellent treatments are extensive and well-priced.
Finally JC’s classes and workshops are exceptional. They are paced to suit beginners through to advanced yogis. He has an unerring passion to encourage and educate both physically and spiritually. It is a pleasure to take JC’s classes in such a beautiful setting but I would also take his classes in a shed, if that was the only option!
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working alongside Jean-Claude (JC) for about 8 years. He was first my student and I was overjoyed when he decided to train as a teacher of yoga. He has developed into an inspirational teacher full of enthusiasm for yoga and life.
JC has attended many workshops with UK and worldwide teachers to increase his knowledge of different lineages and meditation. This has enhanced his skills enabling him to become a confident, trusted and exciting teacher. He takes great care in the preparation and delivery of his classes and workshops and has become a highly regarded teacher.
I run many workshops with JC and will be running Retreats and special events with him in in the future.I heartily recommend my dear friend to those who wish to be challenged in their physical practice in a mindful way.Heather George (Senior Yoga Teacher-Yoga Alliance UK)
JC's yoga classes are full of creativity and always with a healthy dose of challenge. He always makes sure that everyone is looked after well and he feels into the energy of the group with great sensitivity so we can get the most of the class. His knowledge of even the more advanced poses attracts yoga students and teachers too, his warm attitude brings a unique vibe to each class. It is great to learn from a yogi that really walks his talk.
I have had the privilege of being taught by JC for over a year now and can honestly say my yoga has benefited immeasurably under his dedicated instruction. What impresses me most about JC is his ability to come into a class, gauge the students different abilities and adapt the class accordingly, he always gives numerous variations so that the beginners are catered for and the more advanced always find their abilities stretched. His dedication and commitment to his students is second to none and I truly believe he is the best yoga instructor it is possible to come across. He makes yoga fun and I always look forward to going to class. Make sure you ask him to sing to you at the end.
