Blenheim Palace's "Get Fit" Campaign in 2020
"After a final restorative yoga class on Sunday before leaving - great to ease those sore muscles again - we all took our notes and affirmations outside for a closing ceremony around a small fire pit where the group took turns to throw in their secret messages. It was a lovely way to sign off, before heading back out into the world"

Personal - Live Online Classes
“This morning’s Zoom live class was great and I could see Alicia and follow her teaching clearly. I liked that I could glimpse other yogis and felt like I was ‘part of a class‘ not just doing a video alone at home…”
“Thanks for all you are doing to keep us yogis together and practising.”
“A brilliant yoga class with Alicia. Challenging, calming and a sense of community. Loved it.”
“I thought it was a lovely way of continuing the class and to keep in touch.”
“Loved your FIRST LIVE CLASS on Wednesday – I do lots of yoga videos online which are professionally produced with excellent teachers, but they are missing a vital ingredient – connection – practising together (at the same time, if not in the same room) and sharing intentions in a safe community like &SISTER, particularly in these challenging times.
Keep it up!”
Personal - Retreats & Classes
"I just wanted to tell you that the session last night was honestly one of the loveliest, most chilled and frankly MAGICAL yoga sessions I have ever had – and I’ve done yoga on an empty beach in northern Australia surrounded by rainforest. I’m also happier today and I don’t think that’s a coincidence."
"Thank you for a wonderful retreat. Your hospitality was beautiful and I felt both very looked after and at home. The yoga was really lovely, the food was fantastic (I recreated those oven baked apples last night and they were yummy) and the scenery stunning."
"Thank you so much for such a lovely retreat. All the small kind efforts, and additional touches, all of it together made for a really beautiful time 🙂 Im feeling super revived in my practice, and looking forward to taking that feeling with me."
“I would give this retreat 10 out of 10. The location is beautiful and the retreat is supremely well organised. It is worth the money just for the vegetarian food that is served! It is quite simply some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. The yoga sessions are brilliantly structured and Mischa is an incredibly committed and knowledgeable yoga teacher. She teaches with the experience and knowledge of a great teacher and the enthusiasm, wonder and humility of a great student. It’s a very powerful combination. Her commitment is total and completely inspiring. The combination of the nutrition, instruction and location really do make it a retreat that you take home with you. I have just read this review and I’m thinking that I should write down something that they could do better. However, I really can’t!”
“I’m coming away feeling relaxed, in tune with myself, enriched, nourished, and with a better awareness of myself, thank you!”
“The attention to details at Poundon has been amazing, from goodie bags on arrival, wonderful food, and amazing yoga and meditation."
“Natalie and Alicia have created a very personal environment which fits so perfectly with yoga and allows people to fully let go and get a really rich experience. “
Poppy Cross, The London Health & Fitness Girl
“Reflecting back now on my weekend at Poundon House with the wonderful Saskia, I can honestly tell you I found this retreat to be totally transformative. There is scientific evidence to suggest that both yoga and meditation can change neural pathways in the brain and I have to say I can fully feel the effects. Trust me when I say I genuinely feel better than I have done in years! I wake with more energy and ready to hit the ground running most days whereas previously I was always pretty sluggish in the mornings. I also feel generally calmer and more positive on a daily basis."

“I had a wonderful time at Poundon House for the New Year Retreat. I felt truly blessed to have this time…with these people in such a beautiful setting AND great teaching!”
