    "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!

    "Un séjour cousu main pour guérir d'une rupture traumatisante"

    Le site, l'habitation, ma chambre au calme avec terrasse privée (superbe vue), le chant des oiseaux dans le jardin, la nourriture exceptionnelle (saine ET savoureuse), la qualité de coeur des hôtes et l'atmosphère qu'ils ont pu instaurer parmi les participantes.

    "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!

    "Calm, honest and well executed overall mindset"

    The host are loving and welcoming and still keep it very professional. They are excellent at their profession and full of knowledge. You get the sense of trusting the process due to this and can dedicate to your own cause.

    "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 Authentic healing experience in a beautiful settin"

    I felt that the owners of the retreat, Aleid and Doby were very authentic and genuinely very experienced in their field and interested in my health journey and doing all they could to help me.

    The location, the wonderful home cooked meal, the small group size and easy to follow guidance.

    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.

    "Utterly magical experience "

    I turned up at Aleid and Doby's feeling broken, mentally and physically. I was planning to do a 6-day juice fast, as I've heard it can help with chronic pain.

    In the end though, it wasn't the fasting that was the most restorative part of the trip. Aleid's yoga sessions (in the morning sun, surrounded by birds and trees) were the first time in 20 years of sporadically doing yoga that I really understood how my mental and physical processes are linked and how yoga can tap into this and bring about healing.

    Likewise the one-on-one sessions with Aleid. She's a trained psychologist, understands bodies and is preternaturally perceptive, making her such a wise and warm mentor. I learned a lot.

    It was torturous not eating Doby's food, which I saw served up every day. I'll be back to do an eating retreat as soon as I can!

    Both Aleid and Doby are lovely people and the small group size (just four of us) mean you're looked after on a really personal level. I'm sure I wasn't the easiest guest, especially mid-meltdown (!) but they never made me feel as though I was being a pain.

    Thanks so much, both of you! It was transformative x

    "A Real Slowdown and unwind"

    The whole experience was just what I needed. A mix of very targeted yoga practice, specific life coaching, plenty of time for getting to know the local environment: cyling, walking, dog walking, enjoying the sea and sun, and just the right amount of quiet relaxing time. The food was wonderful.

    "Lovely, relaxing retreat"

    Doby and Aleid are just delightful, such genuine, lovely people. They open their home to a small number of guests and treat everyone like family. The food is fabulous, the yoga classes are excellent and pitched so everyone of any ability gets the right level of challenge and attention from Aleid for their level - however experienced or inexperienced they may be. Bike rides/walks to local beaches just round of the whole experience.

    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.

    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.

    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!!!

    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.

    "Egal wonach du sucht, du wirst es hier finden!"

    Vor meiner Reise wusste ich selber nicht wonach ich wirklich suchte und was mich diese Woche erwarten wird. Ich hab mich einfach mal darauf eingelassen und es war genau das was ich brauchte, es hat auf jeden Fall alle meine Erwartungen übertroffen. Ich braucht meine Ruhe und hab viel allein unternommen. Die Landschaft ist wunderschön und man kann schöne lange Spaziergänge machen. Mit dem Velo kann man zudem auch gut alles besichtigen was in der Nähe ist.

    Mir hat alles gefallen:

    Die Unterkunft und mein Zimmer

    Das Essen und die Gastfreundschaft von Aleid und Doby

    Die Yoga und Meditation Lektionen

    Perfekte Lage - zwei Minuten vom Meer entfernt

    L’accueil de Doby et Aleid, qui étaient très à l’écoute de mes besoins. Les cours de yoga étaient bien expliqués, et se déroulaient dans des lieux variés. Le stage est vraiment tourné vers un travail personnel.

    La nourriture était incroyablement savoureuse.

    "Warm and wonderful timeout"

    I had the most amazing two weeks with Aleid and Doby! I loved how yoga and the coaching sessions were perfectly combined as Aleid was giving both. The food Doby made was delicious and full of amazing spices and healthy vegetables, I have been given a lot of inspiration for doing more yoga, meditation and cooking at home. The surroundings were beautiful, you could take long walks in nature, sit on the cliffs and look out at the sea, very calm in the winter time, yet warm enough to do yoga outside or even swim. We had a lovely group of people, it really felt like a little family with new found friends. Aleid & Doby make sure you really feel comfortable and can relax a lot. I will definitely visit again. Big hugs! <3

    "Perfekt"

    Es war mit Abstand eine der besten Erfahrungen, die ich machen konnte! Habe in diesen 10 Tagen viel über mich selbst gelernt, was ich zuvor nicht nur annährend in Betracht gezogen hätte. Es war eine unvergessliche und einschneidene Zeit, die mich mit viel positiver Energie zurück in den „Alltag“ gebracht hat. Aleid und Doby sind zwei wunderbare Menschen und das Leben bei ihnen hat sich wie eine zweite Famile angefühlt...

    Thank you Aleid & Doby for everything and until we meet again!

    Much love,

    "Sehr entspannender Urlaub in familiärer Atmosphäre"

    Aufgrund der kleinen Teilnehmerzahl (3-5) Personen entsteht ein sehr familiäres Gefühl. Jeder hatte jedoch seinen eigenen Rückzugsort und alle haben sich Zeit für sich selber genommen. Der Ort ist wunderschön für diverse Spaziergänge mit Blick über das Meer zu nahegelegenen Buchten, in den kleinen Hafen oder den Nationalpark. Besonders schön sind die Yogaeinheiten. Auch aufgrund der kleinen Teilnehmerzahl konnte Aleid auf die Bedürfnisse jedes einzelnen eingehen und ggf. Änderung der Positionen vorschlagen. Besonders toll war es, wenn das Wetter mitgespielt hat und wir die Yogaeinheit draußen gemacht haben. Das war einfach bezaubernd. Da ich eine absolute Tierliebhaberin bin, fand ich es auch super, dass es eine Katze und einen Hund gibt, die immer für eine Streicheleinheit oder ein Spiel zu haben waren :-) Was mir auch noch echt gut gefallen hat, war das Essen. Doby hat uns vor dem Yoga immer einen richtig gesunden,leckeren Smoothie gemixt und sooo abwechslungsreich, gesund und köstlich gekocht. Ich habe mich in einer Woche noch nie so gesund ernährt und habe unheimlich viele Ideen mitgenommen. Auch die Coachingeinheiten und die Massagen waren für mich richtig. Da muss jedoch jeder selber für sich entscheiden, was mehr oder weniger genutzt werden möchte.

    "A relaxing week in Cala Figuera "

    I spent a wonderful relaxing week with Aleid and Doby. The yoga classes, Aleid’s sessions, Doby’s massages and his tasty vegetarian meals were just awesome. They are such lovely people. They treat you like being part of the family. Only two more guests were present. We all had our own space either in their beautiful garden or on the nice terrace. A very nice small harbour and a beautiful coastline just nearby.

    Das vegetarische Essen von Doby war außergewöhnlich lecker und abwechslungsreich.

    Der Yogaunterricht von Aleid war sehr gut strukturiert und auf die Teilehmer individuell angepasst. Die Meditationen haben mir auch sehr gut gefallen.

    Aleid hat das Programm am Anfang erstellt, es konnte aber im Laufe der Woche an die Bedürfnisse der Teilnehmer angepasst werden.

    Die private Terrasse welche zu meinem Zimmer gehörte und fast den ganzen Tag Sonne einfing (besonders da es rundherum eher schattig und eher kühl war)

    Den besonderen Platz im Wald wo Aleid ihr Coaching durchführt - fantastisch schön!

    "Eine Woche pures Glück"

    Aleid bot uns ein auf uns abgestimmtes Yoga mit perfekter Balance von körperlicher und mentaler Herausforderung und Rücksichtnahme auf individuelle Grenzen. Vor allem wegen ihrer einfühlsamen, akzeptierenden Persönlichkeit vertraut man sich ihr gerne an, sowohl in ihrer Rolle als Yogalehrerin, als auch als Psychologin / Coach.

    Dobys wohltuende Ganzkörper-Massage ist von der Art, bei der man sich wünscht, sie würde nicht enden. Und er zauberte für uns immer das beste, vegetarische Essen mit köstlichem Geschmack.

    "Cala Figuera"

    Die individuelle und liebevolle Betreuung durch die Gastgeber Aleid&Doby und ihre Bereitschaft auf meine Bedürfnisse einzugehen. Ich habe keine grosse Yogaerfahrung, und konnte trotzdem maximal profitieren. Es war ein erholsamer und ernergisierender Aufenthalt, in einer kleinen Gruppe von nur 3 Gästen.

    Ebrahim

    The retreat was absolutely wonderful! Aleid and Doby are two very kind souls who have created a peaceful sanctuary. The location of the house and the overall atmosphere is delightful—I felt right at home. Doby created deliciously healthy and organic meals and his reiki treatment was very powerful. Aleid’s counselling was insightful and helped me immensely. I went to the retreat after accumulating a lot of tension and stress over many years, but after 3-4 days there, I felt rejuvenated and reborn. Even though I have had many yoga sessions in the past, the yoga training I received here taught me a lot about the yogic postures and their effects. I really cannot recommend this retreat enough! I miss Aleid and Doby dearly and will go back as soon as I can.

    Clare Young

    Thank you both so much for sharing your home, knowledge and energy with me over the past week.

    Aleid, I have loved the yoga and meditation! Doby your food is fabulous!

    It has been a complete experience for me, and a new experience

    from Texas,

    This retreat was everything I could have hoped for and more. A life changing experience that gave me the space to relax and recharge, as well as the resources and connection to evaluate my direction in life and rejuvenate my spirit. From daily yoga practice, and one-on-one coaching sessions with Aleid, to incredible, clean vegetarian meals, and reiki/massage from Doby, these two wonderful individuals ensured that I had every opportunity to treat my mind, body, and soul with the best possible care. I was able to heal, and grow, relax, and enjoy every last moment of my time here, and am beyond grateful for the experience.
