Armonia Alpujarra Spain Yoga Retreat Program

This retreat is the place where you can breathe in the beauty of nature, fresh mountain air, and feel the joy of being alive in every moment. This is the place where you can revitalize your body, mind, and soul with transformative yoga and healing therapies. Set within the stunning Sierra Nevada Mountains in Andalusia, Spain, Armonia Alpujarra healing retreat center offers yoga holidays, personalized retreats, and an abundance of organic goodness.

Armonia Alpujarra is facilitated with love, by two highly qualified yoga teachers and healers, Ziza Fernandes Sagy and Yair Sagy. Both, Ziza and Yair, have more than twenty years of experience within their unique therapies. In this retreat, you will have the opportunity to enjoy their healing therapy treatments.


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.

Retreat location

Nestled in the foothills of the Spanish Sierra Nevada mountains, Armonia Alpujarra is a truly special place. The healing retreat center is surrounded by the pristine unspoiled beauty of rolling hills, high mountains, and ancient olive and almond groves.
