    Born in Mexico, Rafael decided in 1997 to pursue his full time passion, the practice and study of Tibetan Buddhism. After a few years of meditation, he started to study Jivamukti yoga. He became a certified Jivamukti teacher in 2003 (300 hours) and received advanced certifications in 2007. Since then, he has become involved in Jivamukti teacher training as a mentor and translator, and as a Sanskrit Teacher in India, Mexico, and the USA. He thinks it must be in his genes, he is a healer. Although he is based in Mexico City, he travels often, giving sessions on yoga, Buddhism, and healing.

Bali is one of the 17,000 islands in Indonesia, and the only one where Hinduism is the main religion so it plays a huge part in its open and welcome feeling. You immediately notice how important their religion is to the Balinese in day to day Life. Balis landscapes, cultural heritage, people, beaches, music and food holds mysteries for you to explore. Bali is a land of pure heart. The most dazzling green fields, the warmth of that endless summery sun and the genuine smiles on the faces of locals makes you feel instantly at home.

    Review by Xavier Carayon from Colombia

    Le yoga c'est bien, mais le fric c'est mieux !

    CONS Cons: Faites attention, l’organisateur a un gout prononcé pour les dollars. Il a voulu me faire payer deux fois la chambre parce que j'étais un homme et qu'il n'y avait pas d'autres homme pour partager la chambre. Il s'avère que l’hôtel affichait le prix des chambres sur son site web et que le prix qu'il m'a demandé de payer en plus une fois que j'ai eu payé le prix demandé, revenait à me faire payer deux fois la chambre Il m'a précisé qu'il ne faisait pas assez de marge sur moi. Quand j'ai eu compris l'arnaque et que je le lui ai dit, il m'a précisé " tu payes ou tu t'en vas". Un délicieux personnage, vraiment.

    PROS Pros: Les cours de yoga. La prof était très sympa et connaissait son approche.

    Organizer response: Xavier, Es una lástima que las cosas no hayan funcionado para ninguno de los dos. En muchos años de trabajo y compartir el yoga en nuestros retiros es la primera vez que nos sucede. Désolé. Lo que sucedió fué que compraste una habitación COMPARTIDA y yo te avisé desde el momento de tu compra de que no tendrias compañero y tendrías que pagar un suplemento (incluso con $100 dolares de decuento del precio marcado) y tu en tu mensaje dijiste que si. Claro, al llegar no te gustó la habitación ni el hotel, cosa que no es ningún engaño, tengo fotos y especificaciones del hotel (si tu no las lees, es un problema para todos) Además querías piscina y lujos que nunca fueron anunciados, realmente contra eso no se puede hacer nada. Creo que la profesora y yo estuvimos en nuestra mejor dispocición de que VIVIERAS lo que es un retiro de yoga, no un RESORT. Que es lo que nosotros vendemos: yoga retreats. Para ir a RESORTS tienes una amplia variedad en booking.com ;) En fin, repito, que lástima que no supiste aprovechar todas las bondades del retiro que tiene para ti, creo que te ayudaría mucho vivir realmente lo que es el yoga y si te recomiendo leer muy bien las especificaciones de cada retiro de yoga (si es que vuelves a alguno) antes de comprar. Que tengas luz, Federico

    "As defined by Mahatma Gandhi for Albert Einstein about the meaning of Namasté: "

    ""I honor the place within you where the entire Universe resides; I honor the place within you of love, of light, of truth, of peace; I honor the place within you, where, when you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us.""

    "In this sense, thank you OmmRetreats for bringing people together from all nations, all continents, all ages, all colors, all sexes. cause we are all different. but at the end we realize that we are ONE. we merge into THE ONE."

    "Ho conosciuto Omm Retreats circa un anno fa, e leggendo le recensioni dei precedenti ritiri yoga mi aveva subito colpito la genuinità dei gruppi che si formavano e l'attenzione nel scegliere i resort migliori."

    "Ho partecipato all'ultimo ritiro ed ho confermato le mie impressioni. L'hotel era immerso nel verde, l'organizzazione impeccabile ed il gruppo sembrava appositamente selezionato per creare quella sintonia necessaria per riequilibrarsi con se stessi ed il mondo. "

    "Esperienza decisamente positiva! Grazie Omm Retreats."
