Yoga Retreats (3)
After serving in the Israeli army for four years, Yair felt a deep need to change, like an inner voice that was whispering "that is not it, you need to continue and explore, your destiny is calling". That voice was so strong that he could not ignore it. So, he packed up and embarked on a spiritual quest which led him to India where he discovered yoga, meditation, and a deep urge to unite with the divine. As the magic continued to evolve, Yair was guided in a way that allowed him, through teaching yoga, Qigong, and the practice of acupuncture, to help others to heal and transform.
Ziza Fernandes Sagy
After finishing her army service and a degree in art, Ziza moved to Los Angeles. Whilst living there, she was invited by a friend to model in a foot reading and reflexology class. She was amazed by the depth and amount of information the students managed to gather from her feet, as well as the deep physical and emotional experience when she was treated. That experience had a profound effect which helped her understand herself in a new way. For the first time, Ziza understood there is a connection between body, mind, and emotions, and so she decided to become a therapist herself.

"Depends what you're looking for"
Yair is an excellent yoga instructor. He explained all the poses very clearly and patiently. He also talked a lot about yoga ethos and philosophy, which I found very interesting. There aren't many rooms so the yoga classes will always be small, with plenty of time to focus on each individual.
The location is amazing. If you are looking for a beautiful mountain retreat, this couldn't be much better. The small town of Lanjaron is a 30 minute walk.
Meals were very pleasant and healthy. There is an abundance of fruit and vegetables - excellent if you're looking for a "detox". You eat with other guests, at specific times, in Yair and Ziza's kitchen or on the terrace just outside their house, so you feel very welcome and a part of their home. They are both very interesting company.
The walk up to Antonio's was lovely too - highly recommended!

"Relaxing and Restoring Yoga Yule"
Yair's open hearted approach to yoga (and qi gong) has made me a convert. I never felt out of my depth and with classes arranged in a circle they had a lovely community feel. We were also introduced to the fabulously playful world of Biodanza, which was fun and liberating.
The food was fantastic - really flavoursome and imaginative recipes that have inspired me to cook more vegetarian food.
This retreat was just what I needed after a hectic 2018 and I would recommend it to anyone looking to relax and reconnect with what's important.

"Beautiful place with average yoga experiance "
The location and the farm / site located in the middle of the olive plantage. Swimming pool availability made it really nice to cool down during the hot days.

"Amazing experience "
I had never heard of Biodanza before doing this retreat. I found myself unwinding and feeling so in tune with myself and others around me. It was truly amazing and an experience I would highly reccomend for becoming connected and at one with the world. The instructors are fantastic. The scenery, food and surroundings are fantastic. Highly recommended. Thank you xx
