"This is a holistic retreat, with a 'whole-istic' approach "
Mapi & Rapa give the whole of themselves, their beloved home & resources. This is magic. It’s not about perfecting poses, it’s about perfecting the self or at least accepting the self. Perched atop a mountaintop hidden inside dense pines lies the DePura sanctuary. We glamped it up with a luxury bell tent with electricity & comfy plush furniture & eco nature shower. I loved laying on my very comfortable bed looking out at the varying greenery up to the stars. We were lucky enough to have both a magnificent mountain view of the sunrise as well as the sunset. There were 14 people on the grounds. Yet, I only saw them if I chose to otherwise I hid away to meditate, nap or read on the numerous fashionable hammocks & lounges well thought-out, hidden from plain sight, merged into the rosemary & aloe lined pathways. DePura’s wooden raised yoga deck was the best with 360-degree views of nature. Yoga: wonderful with a mix of different schools, specialized concentration on eclectic practices rare to find outside of India or Tibet. Something for everyone which gave a unique balance to the entire mission of peacefully merging the body, soul, and mind. I loved the aerial yoga hanging in this beautiful nature while feeling different sensations of inversion in the open air. Food: fresh, fanciful, everything tasty, vegan with creative, healthy, fulfilling from morning 'til night. I feel fortunate for such a meaningful experience with DePura & the friends & lessons I took away with me.

Cadre magique et accueil très agréable. Une belle parenthèse pour prendre soin de soi.
from Spain, September 2018
Me encantó que todo está pensado para que inevitablemente, descanses, desconectes y te vuelvas a conectar contigo [email protected] Y eso es gracias a un equipo que cuida tanto la forma de hacer, como el cariño con que lo hacen.
Me encantó que Rafa tuvo el inmenso acierto de tomar las decisiones correctas ante una situación desagradable, que nos hubiera arruinado la estancia a todos los demas. Ante personas que llegaron con muy mal rollo, insultándole y exigiendo de forma agresiva y prepotente, prevaleció el bienestar y la armonia de todos, frente a lo económico. Dice mucho de lo que resulta importante aqui. Armonia, tranquilidad, amor en lo que se hace. Se siente, se nota y se agradece.

"Coupé du monde dans les collines d’Ibiza"
L’ambiance tres chaleureuse, presque familiale.
La gentillesse de l’equipe. Chacun fait le maximum pour que votre sejour se passe au mieux.
L’importance accordée a la meditation et le pranayama
Le calme absolu de l’endroit et la vue magnifique sur les collines.
Il n’y a aucune tentation a quitter l’endroit.
On est dans une bulle de bienveillance, de gentillesse et de protection.
La nourriture est excellente. La meilleure nourriture vegan jamais mangée.
A deux reprises Rafa et Mapi nous emmenent decouvrir un endroit merveilleux de l’ile.
C’est simple, sans luxe. Tres ecolo
Toute l’equipe est fun et adorable

"Incredible week of relaxation and nature "
This retreat is a truly incredible and authentic experience. The location is fantastic and the grounds of the retreat are stunning. Rafa and Mapi are beautiful teachers. They really do care about each individuals experience at Depura and put their heart and soul into it.
The week gives a good balance between activity and calm, making new friends and silence. There are plenty of places around Depura to chill in silence. The countryside is beautiful for an early morning walk. On two days we had day trips to the beach which was a great contrast to the countryside.
I stayed in the bell tent which was brilliant. Amazing to feel so close to nature and the showers and toilet are nearby.
Thanks Rafa and Mapi, can't wait to return

The food was incredible, the location was serene and relaxing, a good balance between relaxing in a hammock all day or going down to the stunning local beach and swimming in the crystal seas.

"Fantastische locatie, het voelde gelijk goed bij aankomst! "
Het eten was heerlijk, moest wel wennen aan de ruime tijd tussen de maaltijden in, vooral van diner naar onbijt, maar was uiteindelijk goed. En geeft me n andere kijk op mijn eetpatroon.
Goede begeleiding bij de yoga.
Leuke afwisseling qua planning.
