"Intimate retreat in an idyllic location with amazing hosts!"
I couldn’t have asked for more...... Aleid and Doby are such warm, caring and passionate people. I was made to feel extremely welcome and part of the family. It is clear that the retreat has intentionally not been scaled up, so that they can offer an intimate attention to all of their guests.
The house is a tranquil setting, with beautiful gardens and there are many comfortable spots to relax. The location was also perfect - next to a quaint local port and within walking distance of national parks, nature reserves, costal walks and beaches.
The food prepared by Doby was outstanding... always highly nutritious and delicious (freshly prepared smoothies to exotic vegetable curries and salads)... it is clear that he is passionate about cooking.
The holistic treatments offered are a great blend of psychological expertise with spiritual and emotional coaching, which was offered in a bespoke way to my specific needs. Aleid is also highly experienced in Yoga and I really felt growth through her detailed guidance and instruction.
I would highly recommend this retreat and I will definitely be booking with Aleid and Doby again in the future
Massive thanks to both of you for an experience to remember :)

"Experience to remember - soul and mind retreat! "
Dear Aleid, Doby,
Thank you so much for this week spent together. I feel so lucky to have met you and our amazing little group. I have learned to meditate with more consciousness, enjoyed so much our morning yoga sessions and our chats in the port, under the trees and by the sea! Also I felt so spoiled with Doby’s superb cuisine. It’s not just tasty and healthy, it’s authentic, unique, with a very special touch based on Doby’s important experience with various cuisines. Thank you for being always respectful to my dietary requirements.
Bija’s massages were an icing on the cake 💙
It’s an experience to remember and to repeat for mind and soul.

This retreat heals your soul in so many ways... the warmth of the owners Aleid and Doby, the amazing food, the professionalism in Yoga, Meditation and Psychology, the nice areas around the finca, the wonderful beaches, the peacefulness of the nature... It might have only been one short week but for me the impact was bigger than a trip around the world. Thank you, love Marion

"A perfect place for having a break"
Aleid and Doby are very nice and underwtanding people. They work with effeciency ans to there best to make you feel great. Very nice situation in a small fish Harbor. I recommend greatly this retreat.
from Switzerland, July 2020
The hosts Aleid and Doby are very warm and caring persons that made me feel welcome, they did everything they could to make me feel at home. I really loved doing yoga outside in the beautiful garden and next to the pine trees of the nearby wood! Also something I loved was the food: I am not a vegetarian, but Doby's food was really delicious and I didn't miss at all during my 15 days there.
But the most outstanding thing about this retreat is the yoga teacher / counsellor Aleid and the personal attention in the semi-private setting. Even though I am still a beginner, I have taken some yoga classes during the last 15 years. But never has someone explained every pose the way Aleid did, making sure everybody (we were only 3 guests!) did it correctly and fitting the exercises to our individual needs. She explained the sense of the poses as well as the meaning of the meditations and breathing exercises. And of course the combination of yoga/meditation with the daily counselling session is very unique - you usually don't get this at a yoga retreat! With her background in psychology and as a yogi as well as her experience in life Aleid has a very different approach to therapy than other psychologists, which I really liked! She gave me some new insights that were really helpful.
Overall a can only recommend this retreat if you are looking for a place to unwind and at the same time learn yoga and something about yourself in a familiar setting.
Thank you so much Aleid and Doby!

"The ideal spring clean"
We had the most perfect week juice fasting at Aleid and Doby’s retreat.
From the moment we arrived we felt totally relaxed and welcome, and truly nurtured. The retreat size of three was ideal for us as neither of us like large groups.
Fasting was a little challenging with Doby’s divine smelling and tempting meals wafting in front of our noses every day. But our juices were also a culinary feast of different fruit and veg combinations. Each juice was different. Always with a warm juice in the evening.
By the end of the week we both felt energised and ready to face the world again.
Aleid patiently led us through our yoga, exercise and meditation classes. Both of us were very rusty and creaky, but Aleid was a wonderful teacher, and we really benefited from her gentle way of teaching.
Aleid’s one on one sessions were also beneficial and timely, as I arrived feeling emotionally run down after three months of caring for my ageing parents.
I had two fabulous massages from Doby, who really does have healing hands.
Thank you both for a beautiful week. We loved spending time with you. We will be back one day….

"If you need a personal retreat you cant get it better!"
The friendlyness und professionell custody during the whole stay.
Quality of meals, yoga sessions and coaching. the nice Living room, terrace and garden, situation 50m close to the cala.
I lost 6 kg in one week (+1 week of post treatment) and changed some of my behaviours substancially.
Thank you very much!

"10 truly happy days!"
It’s odd to be back home after 10 truly happy days with Aleid and Doby. I knew when we arrived it would be ‘fine’ and it was so much more than fine- it was a wonderful ‘spacious’ experience with two of the nicest people possible.
I had never done anything quite like this before and at 70 and with only two years of yoga behind me I think I was a bit apprehensive- nothing to worry about!
During our stay we were always three guests: my friend and myself and one (delightful) other and it was such fun. Aleid is very gifted: perceptive, intuitive and intelligent- she has a great depth of knowledge, effortlessly shared. Her teaching is gentle and firm and her counselling truly helpful. It was surprisingly easy to be open with her. Doby has healing hands, so reiki and massage were really special….and his cooking was marvellous! Delicious meals, smoothies and ( healthy!) snacks miraculously appeared and lunch in particular was a time for relaxation and chat.
I loved my living space, and the gorgeous garden. I loved swimming in the harbour early in the morning, visits to Cala Santanyi beach and Mondrago. It’s a beautiful part of Mallorca and the views of the sea are stunning. Best of all was the company of two warm and special people, who as I write, I miss! Thank you to you all (which includes Hearty the dog who has stepped out of an Eygyptian painting and the three cats) for including us so generously into your family.

"Fantastic Way to Bring in the New Year"
The location, the wonderful home cooked meal, the small group size and easy to follow guidance.
from United States, January 2019
Aleid's yoga instructions were very professional and insightful. The environment was very welcoming and warm. Doby's cooking was excellent and generous. I've never eaten so well and so light. Every meal was a revelation. I forgot all my worries for awhile and it felt great!

"First time yoga retreat experience"
I have never done this type of holiday before and I have never done yoga either! It was a new experience and after settling in I enjoyed my stay with Alied and Doby very much. I met some lovely people (I think I was very lucky!), the food was exceptional, massages worked wonders and the yoga classes were very enjoyable – fit for all levels. The atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly (may take some time to adapt if you are very stressed – just take it all in!). The presence of animals in the house just made my experience even better – I really enjoyed walks with Alied and Hearty (the chief dog and yoga teacher assistant). :)

"Excellent in every way."
I was so impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of Aleid and Doby. My yoga instruction and counseling sessions with Aleid have changed my life. Doby made me the most spectacular vegan food and Nothing was too much to ask. My reiki session with Doby was lovely and truly calmed my spirit. The location is so beautiful and enabled me to hike, cycle, swim to my hearts content. I will DEFINATELY return. I rate this retreat 10 our if 10.

"Kurz vor burnout, richtige Entscheidung"
Ich habe insgesamt 10 Tage bei Doby und Aleid verbracht da ich schonmal bisschen entspannen wollte bevor es losging und mich sofort willkommen, aufgehoben und sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Beiden sind sehr offen und warmherzig, Doby kocht liebevoll und fantastisch alles bio, meist vegetarisch aber nie langweilig
Aleid ist eine tolle Yogalehrerin und führt toll durch die Meditationen. Besonders geschätzt habe ich die Einzelcoaching Stunden im Waldoffice, mit Aleid fällt es wirklich leicht über alles was einen bedrückt zu sprechen.
In Summe war es die beste Entscheidung die ich treffen konnte um meinem Erschöpfungszustand entgegen zu wirken und ich würde gerne wiederkommen
from Germany, January 2020
"Yoga mit dem "Klack""
Diese 10 Tage waren für mich einfach grandios! Im Yoga bin ich mir selbst in meiner körperlichen Tiefe begegnet - im Coaching hat Aleid mich sanft in neue psychische Ebenen begleitet. Es hat "Klack" gemacht :-). Ich wurde mit herrlichem Essen verwöhnt und zwei entspannenden Massagen. Und ich habe es sehr genossen, bei diesen beiden sehr warmherzigen und liebevollen Gastgebern und ihren Haustieren (Hearty!!!) zu Gast zu sein. Danke!

from Switzerland, July 2019
Aleid und Doby sind die perfekten Gastgeber. Mit Geduld, Einfühlungsvermögen und Freundlichkeit haben sie es geschafft, dass wir uns wie zu Hause gefühlt haben. Ich kann Sharanam wärmstens weiter empfehlen.
Best retreat I've ever been!

"Un séjour parfait pour se retrouver "
Seule hôte de la semaine, j'ai pu profiter de cours de yoga personnalisés et de la merveilleuse cuisine de Dobby. L'emplacement est super car il se situe dans un écrin de verdure et proche de la mer. Je recommande chaudement cet endroit à toute personne qui souhaite prendre soin de soi dans le calme et la nature.

"Een plaats om tot rust te komen, in respect voor iedereen."
Gezond en lekker eten en hartelijke sfeer
Kleine groepen, Yoga met veel individuele aandacht, rekening houdend met ieders niveau of wensen. Goede begeleiding op maat door Aleid met ook hangijzers naar de toekomst. Onze groep bestond uit 4 personen. Elk hadden we een ander doel voor ogen en we zijn allen zijn met een goed gevoel huiswaarts gekeerd.

"One of my best holidays ever!"
It's simply a great work with meditation, yoga, massage and healthy food that Aleid and Dody provide their guests! Very holistic and with a lot of experience in it's individual focus on your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs you might have. All that in very open minded, kind and relaxed atmosphere, so that you can feel comfortable and enjoy each day at it's best. Further more a really great and so beautiful place to stay. Starting with the house and beautiful garden in a small and quite street close to one of the most beautiful harbours in whole Europe and an amazing coastline. Also having a great time in doing stand up paddling, the explorer boat tour, visiting beautiful beaches nearby, a market and at least a great local Flamenco evening with music and dance.
And last but not least if you have to take care in nutrition because of allergy and/or intolerances, Dody is a really great cook who serves you with healthy food that will also in this case fit for you.
Finally I just can recommend to try out how great it feels if you spend your time on doing a lot for your well being this way.
Dear Aleid and Dody, thank you so much for the great stay with you and your wonderful work... the 8 days felt like 2 weeks, inspiring and moving things in a real postitive way!!!
from Czechia, September 2018
I enjoyed everything about this one week retreat - Aleid and Doby are the most lovely hosts, I was a yoga beginner and am now so motivated to continue. I felt really at home and Aleid took the time to really guide me into transformational yoga, meditating and being more conscious about my body and mind - it was really a mind changing experience. And last but not least Doby is the best cook. I am sure I will come back!

"wonderful, loving place"
It is a wonderful place. Very welcome, loving and familiar atmosphere with 3 other guests. Calm and beautiful location, directly at the harbor. Cycling/Biking or walks to the sea with beautiful beaches or cliffs, visits to the market in Santanyi - all around the corner.
Very inspiring sessions with Aleid in her outdoor office. Yoga grew up every day and takes care of individual needs. Perfect combination of Yoga poses, meditation and visualization exercises.
Delicious, healthy and fresh food with local ingredients and delicious spices - prepared with love from Doby (and Marion). Very relaxing and soothing Massage and Reiki.
I had my own "Rooftop Terrace" and enjoyed every minute - already looking forward to my next stay and a reunion with Aleid & Doby.
