"Growing environmental and spiritual awareness "
More than a Yoga Retreat, I would say that it was an experience of practicing yoga in the most amazing and beautiful environment, where Juan and Carla have built a beautiful eco friendly houses to welcome their guests and delight them with benefits of organic vegetarian food. I felt deeply welcomed and cared everyday.
Besides the excellent yoga lessons, we had other workshops and the chance to participate in the eco farm.
The place is not that far from the airport and from Buenos Aires, so you can also combine this retreat with some other tours in Argentina.
I highly recommend this retreat to people who are in the yoga learning path and searching for lifestyle inspiration.

"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!

"A paradise of peacefulness on earth"
The whole retreat was beyond our expectations.
First, the classes of Juan and the others teachers are great, it is also for advanced people. I especially loved the spiritual side that Juan puts into his classes, with his whole heart. I could progress a lot during this week.
Second, Carla is an incredible dancer, always willing to help and do her best for your comfort.
Third, the love that Carla and Juan put into their farm is felt, I could relax a lot and think with peacefulness.
Finally, the food. No words. Simply fresh and delicious. SUPER RICO ! The majorities of the ingredients come from the garden.
I would definitely recommend it and will come back as soon as I have an opportunity !

"Found my peace at Tierras de Avalon"
Juan and Carla were very welcoming - and I felt at home right away. They offered different types of yoga classes, from very relaxing hatha to intense ashtanga. Besides that I got to take a belly dancing class with Carla, an archery class, go cycling, and listen in on their workshops. The food was amazing every single time, but the best part was the people: Juan and Carla, their daughters, and the other guests made it an unforgettable experience.

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! :)
The retreat was OKAY (not as good as expected).
The family running it were wonderful and very nice - especially Carla, who was very warm, but it felt more like visiting a family members house instead of a retreat. It was very informal, with most nights eating around the family dinner table with the little kiddies, or being in tow whilst Juan tended to personal errands. The farm itself is beautiful, but it was quite noisy with the neighbours house under construction, the kids running around in the garden and loads of dogs barking, especially at night.
The weekend event was very interesting with Andre coming to do the voice om'ing and voice guided meditation which I loved, but unfortunately, the entire thing was in advanced Spanish and so I was not able to fully take advantage of what was being said. My Spanish is conversational level and I mentioned this to Juan that I'm having a hard time understanding some of the yoga moves/meditation etc, but unfortunately Juan's English was basic and it was all conducted in advanced Spanish which I couldn't understand. A lot of the time I had to guess what was happening and follow the crowd.
They advertise that they speak English and I was under the impression that the classes would be done in Spanish and English, but unfortunately it was only in Spanish for the entire week. They did provide me with a free massage to compensate for this, which was very nice of them. After spending a whole week on the farm, Juan didn't come to say goodbye when I left, which I was disappointed in.
It depends on what you're looking for - if you're up for a very, VERY informal break on a farm with advanced Spanish yoga classes and delicious food, then this is the place, but don't expect a retreat. I definitely came back feeling more flexible, but not as relaxed as I had hoped.
I have had a wonderful time at Tierras de Avalon. I booked this retreat as a preparation before starting travelling in Argentina.
I felt very at home there, welcomed by Juan and Carla and their 4 daughters, in particular Jasmin, who is old enough (8) to engage and help me with my Spanish. The yoga was challenging for me (beginner) but it was high quality teaching. The food was simple and lovely, mostly from the garden. We took nearly all the meals together with Juan and Carla. The accommodation is basic and good. The whole atmosphere is relaxed with space to just be. It's 1 hour in collectivo to go to Buenos Aires but I had no wish to leave!The place is a little paradise, even the animals are friendly. If it was closer to home I would keep going back regularly!

We enjoyed a weeks retreat at Las Tierras de Avalon. We were here as a family of two adults and a 9 year old boy. Juan and Carla are super nice and made us feel a part of their wonderful family. We had several yoga classes, both Hatha, Ashtanga and more playful family-yoga classes. The quality of the yoga was very high and took individual skill levels into account, so that everybody was appropriately challenged. Classes all finished with relaxation, which was very nice.
The food served is vegetarian and super delicious! There is always coffee, tea and fruits available. The surroundings are very relaxing and there are places to just enjoy the weather. The room we lived in was quite special and build to fit into the surroundings and spirit of the place. There are many animals at Las Tierras de Avalon, a cat, dogs, horses, a sheep, a llama, ducks and chickens. They are all friendly and especially the dogs like to be petted.
This is the perfect place to spend any amount of time relaxing, reflecting and doing yoga. We highly recommend it.
