Client. Love.

The retreat was beautifully organized, with plenty to keep us engaged. In person classes were a true treat! Everyone felt they were lucky to be there and have Nikki’s skills and knowledge shared so effortlessly. I would not miss this opportunity in the future. The accommodations are incredible. Beautiful two bedroom suites in the redwoods. Just lovely.


What are the ingredients for a magical yoga retreat? A great venue. Delicious healthy food. Wonderful people. Generous experienced teaching customized to each student’s needs and abilities. This is what we had, and more, at the Oliveto Estate in Civitanova Mache, Italy, in June, 2023. The retreat organized and led by Nikki Estrada was my fourth in France or Italy and soared above the rest. The two villas that make up the venue were easily comparable to a Four Seasons in terms of design, comfort, cleanliness and amenities. The rooms were large and comfortable. The public spaces offered many places to get away to relax both indoors and around the two large swimming pools or on the many terraces or decks. Two gyms provided exercise equipment and the spa offered steam, sauna and jacuzzi. For the second year Nikki retained a marvelous chef from Scotland who cooked amazing meals that were definitely 5 star. The group ranging in age from 24 to 75 coalesced within the first hour and clearly enjoyed each other's company as much as everything else. The management of the property did their part to ensure that the group was happy and comfortable. Bottom line is that I highly recommend Nikki's retreats and Oliveto, in particular, and would definitely consider a return visit.


Such a beautiful weekend of yoga practice that left me feeling completely recharged. Nikki did an incredible job of making everyone feel included. And wonderful accommodations and food, plus so much natural beauty and tranquility.
