If you are a parent with a love for yoga, but your kids have not yet appreciated it, then our family yoga holidays are an ideal option. We offer a combination holiday of yoga retreat for the parents and outdoor activities under professional instruction for the kids. You can enjoy the healing power of yoga knowing that your children are safe and being looked after, whilst they can experience the excitement of the great outdoors and try out new skills. It is a unique opportunity for the whole family. If your children have never stayed in a yurt before, this could be something new and exciting. In addition to the outdoor adventure, we also raise an eco-friendly organic farm. So rest assured that your family will be staying in a healthy environment where the air is clean and pure.
Surrounded with ancient olive trees, wild nature, and spectacular views of the high sierras, the 70 square metres house comprises 2 bedrooms (one with a double bed and one with twin single beds), 2 bathrooms, and a beautiful terrace where guests can enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Casa Iris is an eco-friendly property that uses solar energy for electricity and water heater. It also has a kitchen, living room, Wi-Fi internet, a small TV, and a DVD player. In addition, guests may have full use of our swimming pool.
Our yurts are eco-friendly, self-contained, fully furnished, and equipped with all modern facilities. Yurts have a different energy from more conventional living spaces: their rounded shape and pointed top create a sense of spaciousness and tranquillity. Guests can gaze up at the stars at night and enjoy the natural light during the day. Surrounded with rolling hills with olive orchards sloping up towards the majestic mountains, our goal is to get our guests closer to nature without sacrificing the comfort.
There is always an opportunity to take your yoga practice to a new level as you experience the joy of practicing outdoors in a warm climate. It can be hot during the daytime in Spain, so you have plenty of time to de-stress, whether its through self-reflection and meditation, spending a while in the pool, or just resting quietly. If you wish to include specific therapy treatments, we can arrange them in your program as well.
In the evenings, if you feel like getting to know the other visitors, you are welcome to join us at Armonia Alpujarra, where everyone gathers in family-style. Should you prefer to spend time separately with your own family, the big yurt is provided with cooking facilities. You may have your own little family dinner or take your family to a spa in downtown Lanjaron, which is pretty near.
We can tailor the program according to your requirements, both for yoga and family activities. There is a wide range of outdoor activities locally, from horse riding to walking along nature trails, rock climbing, camp craft, archery, and beach activities. We also work with local companies, such as outdoors education Only Solutions and Caballo Blanco Horse Riding.
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.
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.
Our centre is located on the foothills of the Sierra Nevada natural park. With pristine unspoiled beauty of rolling hills, high mountains and ancient olive groves.
