"Excellent Yoga/Meditation/Exercise! Very inspiring retreat! "
I just returned and already asked a friend of mine to go together with me next time. ILDA RESTREPO, my Yoga teacher, took time only to teach me (I really was the only one in this retreat), she adapted each class towards my interests, wishes and personal limits, and I`m convinced she also does if there are different participants. She has a great Yoga experience and teaches different styles like Vinyasa Flow or Yin-Yoga to name some of them. As a personal trainer she knows how to encourage people and how to integrate exercises as well as meditation in every day life. So I will take home her messages. If I were around I`d surely ask her to work with me on a regular base. Beatriz, the leader of the retreat made up her mind to offer an interesting program and accompanied me around for horse riding, seeing Albufera national parc and part of Valencia, tasting traditional valencian drink and other activities like hiking. She was very caring e.g. about my mosquito protection, providing a lot of fun all the time. I really enjoyed hanging around with her. I very much appreciated the fabulous food of Beatriz mother, which is well composed regarding healthy ingredients (I`m waiting for the recipe book to come), being influenced by her home country Peru and international kitchen. I enjoyed feeling part of this friendly family, which has a cosmopolitan background and many concerns about oecological and socio-oeconomic struggles of the world without losing their sense of humour. Inspiring!

"A wonderful weekend escape"
The friendly and welcoming atmosphere was wonderful and I felt like I was at home with Bea's family. The yoga classes with Sandra really were great and she gave individual attention to all of us, even spending extra time with me advising me about pregnancy yoga. The food was delicious and made with lots of love.

The yoga was really good, Sandra was very responsive to all participants and managed sessions that worked for everyone. The people were very friendly and the food was wonderful. It was great to sit and eat with the family and enjoy great conversation.

Everything was amazing from start to finish. Beatriz and her family are an absolute delight and Sandra is an amazing yoga instructor and also brilliant at Reiki. I would highly recommend this retreat and would recommend the horse riding as the setting for the horse riding as well as the retreat is stunning. The food is fantastic as well and I will definitely be booking again next year. Thank you so much for a magical time.

Great experience! Beatriz is a brilliant host, her energy is spread all over the place! And Sandra is one of the cutest yoga teacher I have ever met.
Ekkorelax is a perfect place if you are looking for calm, peace, sun and relax. The additional extra activities included in the offer make a perfect balance between rest and not make you bored. I’ll be back for sure both because of the place and the wonderful people!!!

"Simple, welcoming, wonderful"
The welcome from Bea, Sandra and Bea's mum was warm & friendly and made me feel at home straight away. The balance of yoga, activities, free time & optional treatments was perfect for me. The location is beautiful and very peaceful and Bea's mum's food is delicious as well as nutritionally balanced. This us not a strict, regimented yoga retreat, the atmosphere is more like a relaxed holiday with family/friends and, for a first yoga retreat, again this was perfect for me. Sandra is a talented yoga teacher with a warm, positive manner, I particularly enjoyed the bilingual Spanish/English instruction and I liked the flexible timings to fit around the other activities and the weather. Flexibility is a great feature of this retreat, not just of length of stay but also activities offered and arrival/departure transfers. I gained so much from my 4 days at Ekkorelax, I shall definitely be back but I shall book a week next time. Bea and Sandra run a retreat that is informal, super relaxing, fun, informal, inspiring and great value for money. Thanks lots, ladies - it was fab.

"yoga retreat near Valencia"
Peaceful retreat in the middle of lovely countryside but only 20 mins from Valencia airport. Beatriz runs the retreat - she is charming and very chilled. We ate informally with her and her family on the patio at the main house in the middle of the gardens. Beatriz's mother does the cooking - Spanish and Peruvian - very fresh and tasty. The pool is a good size - you can swim lengths - it had only recently been filled so it was cold but another week or so and the temperature will be perfect. The rooms are basic, very clean and with extra space in the communal area and an outside patio with tables and chairs. Lovely to do yoga on a verandah overlooking the gardens and Sandra taught a gentle meditative style of yoga which I enjoyed. I have posted this anonymously because the website has me as Karen from USA and I am from the UK.
