Juan teaches classes in different spaces and also teaches theater and movement with Andrea for boys with down syndrome. Together with his wife, Carla, they organize yogic trips for groups to different places in Argentina where the practice of yoga is combined with other recreational activities in natural space. He has been organizing activities for six years in Las Tierras de Avalon where different artistic and therapeutic approaches coexist.

"Quiete and restoring place"
I spend one week in Tierras de Avalon I had a lots of time for me. I did meditation, I read and did yoga almost twice a day. It’s not for beginners, Juan is a great teacher but some lessons are so intense explicitly ashtanga style.

"Yoga Retrear Review "
This is one of the coolest farms I have every seen. The way they live really makes you rethink a lot about your own life. They were very accommodating and made you feel at home. Both Juan and Carla speak English making it easy to talk and get to know them. Would definitely recommend this to anyone seeking a get away!

Estuve con mi pareja 1 semana en Las Tierras de Avalon. Puedo afirmar que ofrece una experiencia muy completa. Mucho mas de lo que la descripción y fotos transmiten.
Es muy recomendable para desconectar y conectar con otras cosas.
Tanto yo como mi pareja quedamos muy conformes. Recomendable.

"An Active yet Restful Retreat"
The yoga classes were great and the food was awesome. Juan and Carla were so welcoming and kind hearted; I left after 2 weeks feeling like I was leaving close friends. The spiritual family-centric environment they have created is one we should all strive to emulate.

"Lovely family, but it is a retreat for advanced students"
Carla, Juan and the four girls are wonderful. Without them the retreat would not be complete. They were extremely hospitable and their cooking was amazing! The yoga was also to a very high standard.

"Un lugar lleno de magia y tranquilidad."
Es un lugar perfecto para pasar unos días rodeado de naturaleza, yoga, comida saludable y compañía muy agradable. Mi estadía en las ierras de Avalón, fue inspiradora y emocionante. Me encantó el lugar donde me alojé, ya que apesar del invierno, no pasé ni tantito frío; lo mismo digo del salón de yoga. El espacio que hay en el lugar es perfecto para pasar rato con uno mismo y realizar actividades cerca de la Madre Tierra.

"First Yoga Retreat and it was amazing:) "
My stay couldn't have been better:) the family is super nice and kind. The food was absolutely delicious and the yoga classes are very heavy sometimes but juan is a wonderful and very experienced teacher. Juan and his wife carla included me in every other activity so that i could get to know the argentinian country life:) the place and the houses they have created is magical and from the first Moment i felt totally relaxed and happy! To everyone who loves to practice yoga and to be in a quite area with nice people and animals, i highly recommend to stay with carla and juan and their beautiful daughters at Tierras de avalon! :)

I had a wonderful week with Juan, Carla and their four lovely children at Las Tierras de Avalon. I was warmly welcomed with open arms, immediately made to feel part of the family - all meals were shared together, I was invited to join several outings with Juan or Carla, I was helped with my Spanish by the eldest daughter and the family always made sure I was happy. The yoga practice took place once to twice a day and was challenging, varied and very productive. After a week I have developed both theoretical and practical skills. Juan is an attentive and creative teacher who offers lessons of high quality. I was even given a private belly dancing lesson by Carla which was fantastic. The house and surroundings are also truly tranquil and beautiful. I highly recommend anyone to stay with these lovely people to get to see a side of Argentina that no hotel or hostel can offer. Thank you for a great week!
