Claudia Darrigrandi PhD University Lecturer Chilean Participant hosted in Chaloklum Bay, Koh Phangan Thailand 2017 & 2018



 I would like to spend my summer vacations working on myself, on knowing me better, and growth in order to have a better life.


This retreat is The Best Program I have ever been to achieve those goals.


I was here in 2017 on a seven-day retreat, and I went back home with shiny eyes and a huge smile on my face.


For 2018 I decided to take more days to go further with my process of self-growth.


This time was a totally new experience as I could work deeper on myself.


It was a extremely rewarding experience.


I did have time for relaxing and recovering from a year of hard work, but most important is how much I learned about myself and my emotions.


During these 10 days there was a lot of progress on that.


While the work with Colleen was getting deeper & deeper, there were days that I simply could not believe how wonderful and amazing is to know your self more and be connected with your Soul, your emotions, and your body.


I also learned how to take care of myself and got so many tips for self care from Colleen that I can easily add to my daily routine.


I learned skills to stop, to get off the rollercoaster, and just be.


I experienced to be and love yourself.


There are no accurate words to express that feeling.


I am so thankful that I met Colleen on 2017 and that I could keep working with her this year.


Colleen has a tremendous experience and knowledge that she generously shares with you.


She knows about Ayurveda, yoga, Pilates, Buddhism, martial arts, and much more.


She is so creative, she is talented, and guides you in such beautiful way that it’s hard to explain how amazing it is to be led by her.


I am lucky that I met her.


Thank so much, Colleen.


Well done on your healing journey progress

German Participant Petra Essenfelder Hosted in Chaloklum Bay Koh Phanga Thailand


Petra Essenfelder Germany, Founder & Leader of the First Trash Hero Koh Phangan environmental campaign on Koh Phangan island Thailand:


Colleen, and the sessions with her, has helped me a lot during some not-so-easy times.


First of all, and to me most important, is her authenticity as a person and as a very experienced and knowledgeable teacher!


I felt totally ‘safe’ and accepted.


On an emotional level, this was a very healing experience.

From the physical side , it was just what my body needed at the time- without me being aware of it before.


I can definitely recommend Saliya Life to anyone who is looking for much more than ‘just a yoga’ session.


Well done on your healing journey progress

Sisters Who Learn & Heal Together




We went to Colleen on a private healing retreat for 7 days, and my goodness she helped us tremendously!

I was suffering with grief, stress, depression, an eating disorder and anxiety.


In these seven days, Colleen taught me tools to deal with what has happened in my life.


We went through so many activities, from yoga practice to help with mindfulness, which I use now every day to help me live my life to the fullest!

The things we did and went through I now carry with me daily and use for everything to really live my life peacefully and happily.


I have become a calm and happy person and not let anything stop me from being who I am as a person, and I have to thank Colleen for helping me get to this place in my life!


It is something you would never forget or regret!


Thanks again, Colleen. You will definitely see us again!


Well done on your healing journey progress.





It’s been so valuable to take three days to stop.

To step away from the noise of life and to check in with myself.


I’ve been able to firstly recognise, and secondly process, grief, sadness and anxiety in a safe space with no distractions.


I saw how disconnected I’d gotten from myself in all the doing and feel like I’ve reconnected to myself in a really calm way.
Accessing warmth, calm and cosiness inside me to finally just relax and be.


I see now that grief isn’t a linear process and sometimes you just need a space and a supportive person to be honest with and let it out.


I also feel grateful to have been able to reconnect to myself and to look inwards.

Time out helped me to see that my first purpose in life is to be myself, not to do do do so much that I forget myself.


Because when I stop and process and be, it’s been lovely to recognise that I like who I am ❣️

Thank you for your support Colleen.

Life in Progress

After her 3 day private healing retreat she regained her strength and moved to rural Japan to teach English.


I have no doubt she’ll be a GREAT TEACHER!

Private retreat was exactly what she needed for her next growth spurt in Life.


Congratulations on your progress & participation.




I believe your magic comes from a deep compassion for the humans who are privileged to find you.

When I asked my angels for healing, they listened.

Your humanity flows through you and is a gift.

There are no coincidences.

All of these years of talk therapy and this is what works.


My mind is blown.

I am so grateful.

Dominique De Klerk hosted in South Africa


I did a 5 day private retreat with Colleen and it was lovely.

Exactly what I needed and had been looking for (without really knowing it).


I was looking for a quiet place to relax and reflect.

Wanting to prioritize and learn tools to better incorporate self-care and balance in my life.


Spending the week with Colleen was exactly that.

The opportunity I needed to get in touch with my physical, mental, and emotional being.


During my week I also had a massage by Colleen.


I left feeling recharged and equipped to continue the practices I had been learning with Colleen in my everyday life. I highly recommend!

Thanks Colleen for the helpful chats and overall lovely experience 🙂
