Accommodation

During this retreat, you will be staying in a yurt or Casa Iris. If you are a nature lover, experience the natural outdoors in a yurt nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Andalusia, Spain. The yurts are located at Armonia Alpujarra Healing Retreat Centre, at the foothills of the spectacular Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Looking out from each yurt, you can enjoy breath-taking views, as you gaze across the stunning olive and almond orchards sloping up towards the majestic Sierras. Armonia Alpujarra is full of organic abundance and is a truly special place: harmonious, healing and peaceful.

As well as being eco-friendly, yurts are self-contained and part-equipped with all modern facilities and have a different energy from more conventional living spaces, as their rounded shape creates a sense of spaciousness and tranquility. At night, you can gaze up at the stars and during the day natural light fills the yurts.

The big yurt has a seven-meter diameter round structure with wooden floors and canvas walls. There is a double and a single bed with a mattress for additional guests. The small yurt has a five-meter diameter with a double bed and both yurts are south facing with breathtaking views.

Both yurts have an outdoor compost loo located 15 meters away and an outdoor shower, equipped with a solar system to heat the water. The big yurt is fully equipped with cooker, fridge and freezer and a comprehensive selection of cooking utensils, cutlery, and glasses while the small yurt has a sink, with a kitchen top.

For living rooms, the big yurt has an area for dining and both yurts have space to lounge and relax. You can enjoy the shared outdoor swimming pool from both yurts. Bed linen and towels are provided as well except beach or poolside towels. The yurts are cleaned with bed linen changed, on a weekly basis.

If you fancy a more conventional accommodation, then Casa Iris is for you, nestled in the heart of Armonia Alpujarra, Casa Iris is surrounded by ancient olive trees, almond groves, wild nature, and enjoys spectacular views, of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Casa Iris is 70 square meters and comprises of two bedrooms, one with a double bed plus ensuite and one with two single beds.

Instructors

Yair Sagy
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.
