  • "What an unbelievable month!

    Tribewanted was the perfect setting for our Yoga Teacher Training journey.

    The Shala is gorgeous and the serenity of the farm was a dream.

    The food was great, the wine was plenty, the company was exceptional and the leadership from Adrienne and Erin was spectacular.

    Thank you so much for such a special experience that I won’t be forgetting any time soon."

  • "My month at Monestevole proved a remarkable experience.

    Umbrian mountain air, delightful freshly prepared (and abundant) Umbrian cuisine, the joy of seeing how we can live well, live better and live sustainably, the sounds and sights of small scale farming.


    I’d like to thank Erin Prichard for steering our motley crew to the lofty heights of 200hr Yoga Alliance qualified teachers. Erin, you are a great teacher, a true leader and a remarkable and superb human.


    The training itself was intense, physically and emotionally demanding, but grounded in “real” yoga practice; history, philosophy, Sanskrit, all 8 limbs, diet and anatomy, inclusion and kindness....


    I return changed, fuller, wiser and I hope kinder to myself and others. It feels good.

    So, if you are 50, 40, 30 or 20, whether you are recovering from desperate trauma or none, if you feel the inexorable pull of yoga then do THIS!"
