Ulovane Reviews

Dearest Candice and Schalk,

Just wanted to send a quick note to thank you both once again for such a fantastic course! It most certainly was a challenge but one that was thoroughly enjoyed! I really do appreciate the time and patience you both spent on and with our group – especially as we were not the easiest at times however you stuck with us, encouraged us and we got there in the end! It really was everything I had hoped it would be and will most certainly be spreading Ulovane’s details both on and around SA & UK shores.

Take care and please do keep in touch – I will most certainly be keeping an eye on updates particularly as and when the new group starts.

Lots of love to you both and the kids. Lara Foster – October 2013

During this course, I’ve learned a lot of information from books, but I don’t think the amount of knowledge I’ve gained from the people around me could ever be measured and for that I am sure we will all be forever grateful.

Thank you to Retha & Paul, who had accepted us {crazy} humans into your home, and who were such a big support to us during the course, whether it was by just having a chat in the kitchen, or helping to organize amazing food for us, we are super grateful for every little thing you did.

To Piet and Shani, who for all purposes were the greatest mentors, not just for the course, but also for life, THANK YOU for always going just the extra bit to help us, and make life a little easier for us, although I’m sure we didn’t always do the same for you & for that I apologize sincerely.

To Schalk and Candice, I don’t even have words to really explain how grateful all of us are to you. During this course we again saw truly how amazing the two of you are and how dedicated you are to Ulovane as a whole, and I guess that is really what makes Ulovane such an amazing institute, the fact that it is run by two people who have such a passion for their job, that nothing is ever too big of an effort for you!

And then to our peers, like I said in the beginning of the blog, you guys truly are some of the most beautiful souls I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting and I would like nothing more than for you to have a successful life and persevere in all the challenges you may face. You guys have played a big part in the amount of fun and excitement I’ve experienced in the past 17 weeks, and I already can’t wait for the reunion we’re planning. It was great while it lasted, but now it’s time to go and explore the world!

Thanks so much for a wonderful few days. We loved every minute of it and it was great meeting you and Schalk, and your lovely family. Mat is very lucky to be with you and I can see that he is so happy and loving every minute of being there. Keep up the good work!!
