Jolie arranged a very special trip for us, from bustling city life to calm down in a small village. Enjoyed different meditations and experiences- all with great friends of her. There is no precise timetable for each day so make sure you don’t await a completely planned day.

Jolie arranged a very special 5 day trip to Linhai for me. She opened my eyes to Qigong, Yoga, Buddhism, Taoism and the incredible ancient city of Linhai. An amazing, authentic and healing adventure I'll always cherish.

The Jolie's retreat house is an unique jewel; a more than one hundred years old authentic rural house, with the best view of Yunnan mountains...The food was also delicious, made with fresh local products by our also unique host Jolie! Totally recommended!

We had an amazing time with Jolie, she is unique, free spirited and has unconditional love for her country and its beauty. Our trip was to be a 5 day yoga retreat but turned into a very personal excursion into the valley in Wenhai. We visited the Yi village, ate among the local people, bought amazing mushrooms to cook, and had the pleasure to meet the Chinese Cowboy. We treked up the mountain, drank Chinese wine, shopped the local markets and of course found time for yoga. Just be careful about the Wenhai Eco lodge not very eco and needs an upgrade. Bring soap!…

I highly recommend a retreat with Jolie to everyone who is searching for an authentic experience in the mountains of Yunnan and who wants to reset and really slow down. It is a place to heal from all the stress and hectic we meet in today´s society. Jolie is a very lovely, knowledgeable and adventurous woman. Thanks again, Jolie, for this memorable experience! I booked a three-days-yoga-retreat in Wenhai-Lake near Lijiang, Yunnan, China with Jolie Adventure. During that time there weren´t any other guests, so that Jolie tailor-made my trip based on my wished and needs. We did a mix of yoga practices, including different asanas, chakra-dance, the Five Tibetan Rites, meditation and pranayama. Furthermore Jolie shared her knowledge about e.g. yoga and Chinese medicine with me, which she has gained during her trips to Thailand and India. Next to the yoga practices we visited locals and ethnic villages. Jolie knows them all well which made this a real authentic experience (with no other tourist around). These families invited us to their homes and shared their meals with us. They were so welcoming and warm-hearted. It was truly an unforgettable experience! In addition we walked around the beautiful lake and enjoyed the landscape with the mountains in the back and yaks grazing on the fields. You will even meet real cowboys there. To the Yi village we hiked through the mountains. We stayed at a nice guesthouse with a beautiful garden. The rooms were big and clean and had a private bathroom attached. Three meals a day were provided by the guesthouse. Even though we often ate with the local families. That way I got to try a lot of different foods that are eaten in Yunnan. I will always remember this wonderful experience with you! Thanks, Maya…
