Nestling in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Spain, Armonia Alpujarra is a truly special place. They wanted to create a space where their visitors could be close to nature, and where they could be part of a community, while enjoying their own privacy. It was important that Cortijo Eco-friendly Yurt Holiday Retreat Farm would be environmentally self-sufficient, in line with their belief that we should do our best to live in harmony with the natural world. So the water comes from their own well, and their electricity is solar-powered.
Respecting the harmony and tranquil energy of the area, they have built two yurts for holiday rental. Both yurts are eco-friendly, self-contained and fully furnished, and equipped with all modern facilities. Yurts have a different energy from more conventional living spaces: their rounded shape and pointed tops create a sense of spaciousness and tranquillity. At night, you can gaze up at the stars. During the day, natural light fills the yurt. Looking out, you gaze across to rolling hills with olive orchards sloping up towards majestic mountains. You can enjoy being close to nature, without sacrificing your comfort.
The retreat will start on Thursday, May 4, 2017 and will end on Sunday, May 7, 2017 in the morning. In a day, you will have various activities that can heal and help you get a better view toward life from daily yoga classes, Biodanza special sessions and meditation sessions in the evening. You will also have time to relax yourself for revitalizing your body and mind.
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, Qi Gong, 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.
The retreat centre is located on the foot hills of the Sierra Nevada natural park. With pristine unspoiled beauty of rolling hills, high mountains and ancient olive groves.
