I had the very pleasurable experience of attending a Santosha Yoga/Reiki day in Toberonochy Hall. My first and certainly won't be my last.

The whole day was planned very carefully and the pace was excellent. The yoga in the morning was excellent and as a beginner I found the experience well thought through for a mixture of attendees  varied experience.


Lunch was excellent, the afternoon started with a walk after lunch which enabled time to chat with other attendees in breath taking scenery. The reiki session was both relaxing and mesmerising. A touch of magic! 

Thank you you Santosha Scotland for a fabulous day! Early Summer Retreat

I had the honour and the privilege of attending the Santosha early summer retreat last weekend and what an absolute treat it was! Siobhan and Paula are warm, funny, welcoming and just incredibly talented at what they both do. The whole day was so well thought out but fluid with lovely wee touches all through! I loved the visit to Brian’s amazing garden to see where some of our delicious lunch had been grown. Sitting in a sacred space with a group of powerful women seems to me something that we as women have very much lost and is very missed. So to be a part of something like this which is bringing those ancient rituals back just felt so very special to me. And the beautiful setting on the magical Isle of Luing was just perfect.

I’ve been filled with energy in the week since the retreat and have finally got round to quite a few tasks I’ve been putting off! So thanks to Santosha for giving me the early summer reset that I was looking for.

"I feel so happy to have had the opportunity to be a part of santosha summer retreat. this is only the second opportunity I've had to be part of a yoga retreat and I can't wait to experience more. From the minute you arrive until you leave you are made to feel so welcome and experience deep relaxation, amazing stretches and breathe work.


The food was outstanding. the surroundings were amazing. we were so lucky to be taken in to see Brian beautiful garden and to see all his amazing veg, flowers. I loved the goody bag with the lavender and lemon oil and bath salts.


Thank you so much for a day that I will remember forever" Summer Retreat

Fabulous retreat in a stunning location, value for money and a lovely group of people to share the day with. As a blind participant I felt fully immersed in every aspect of the sessions and definitely the many sensory experiences of the various practices

I went to the Santosha summer retreat and it has truly set me up for the summer holidays with my children off school. The people were lovely and friendly and the practice powerful. I feel fresh and empowered from taking time for myself and working on healing and focusing on the joy of life. Thank you. X

Thank you for a lovely immersive seasonal experience. It was clear that lots of care and attention went into the dayand it was much appreciated.

and the sun came out - we did that !

Lovely to meet you both :)

I just wanted to feedback to you that the weekend spent on Luing with you was simply unbelievable, I literally feel it has changed something within me and therefore my perspective and life around me! I feel at more peace, I feel greater contentment/detachment from things that would usually cause me to have a short fuse. 

I have followed womb rite advice on my first cycle since (last night) and I am enjoying the body oil and bach flower remedy daily. 

I feel so blessed to have been guided to you and that weekend. It was truly SPECIAL. The accomodation and location was second to none also, I hope to see you both again in 2024.


The most influential weekend of my life.


Thank you X

The winter retreat was excellent. It was extremely relaxing and nourishing, exactly what I needed after a very busy year,  and I will definitely be returning next year. The food was delicious, the accommodation beautiful, and the island,  magical. 


You put a lot of effort into the retreat with all the thoughtful touches and the attention to detail was outstanding. There was a good mixture of doing and being, with some beautiful opportunities to just relax and recharge, along with seasonal yoga and activities. Thank you both for everything, and I look forward to seeing you both again in 2024. 


I would highly recommend Santosha Scotland for anyone who wants to recharge, relax, nourish themselves, and step back from their usual routine.

Have a lovely winter solstice and abundant 2024. 



I have just been for a wonderful weekend at Santosha on the beautiful Island of Luing. Siobhan and Paula ran it and I can not thank them enough for this wonderful experience. Both were very professional and had obviously put a lot of work into this. The food was vegan which was a new experience for me. They had a wonderful chef and all of the food was absolutely delicious. The conservatory that we did all our activities in was beautiful, and so relaxing. I have come back feeling very chilled and relaxed and would HIGHLY recommend this retreat. I will definately be back again. Thank you again to Siobhan and Paula for all of your care and understanding of us all.

   Kind regards and best wishes
