"Relaxing and Restoring Yoga Yule"

Yair's open hearted approach to yoga (and qi gong) has made me a convert. I never felt out of my depth and with classes arranged in a circle they had a lovely community feel. We were also introduced to the fabulously playful world of Biodanza, which was fun and liberating.

The food was fantastic - really flavoursome and imaginative recipes that have inspired me to cook more vegetarian food.

This retreat was just what I needed after a hectic 2018 and I would recommend it to anyone looking to relax and reconnect with what's important.

"Beautiful place with average yoga experiance "

The location and the farm / site located in the middle of the olive plantage. Swimming pool availability made it really nice to cool down during the hot days.

"Amazing experience "

I had never heard of Biodanza before doing this retreat. I found myself unwinding and feeling so in tune with myself and others around me. It was truly amazing and an experience I would highly reccomend for becoming connected and at one with the world. The instructors are fantastic. The scenery, food and surroundings are fantastic. Highly recommended. Thank you xx

"Nurturing, nutritious and very beautiful"

Very relaxed and welcoming yet with structure to the day. Perfect for my first yoga retreat. I also loved partaking in and learning more about biodanza, Qigong and acupuncture. Thank you so much for a wonderful 4 days, Siobhan x

"Yoga get away"

I loved the beautiful environment: the surrounding mountain area (on which I went horseriding- kindly arranged by my hosts) The different areas we practiced yoga in were inspiring and relaxing, especially the platform surrounded by olive trees and a gorgeous view. My house mate was lovely and my hosts were very kind and accommodating. I also received treatment that they offered and was delighted with the results.

"Must-have experience!"

Would highly recommend everyone to immerse in this experience at least once. It is a beautiful, purifying and peaceful environment, everything from the unique yurt stay to the fresh, home-grown food and the first-time biodanza experience!

The best part yet is the wonderful hosts, Yair and Ziza. They felt like family and made this an unforgettable experience!

"Vacaciones para abrir los sentidos a la naturaleza en familia"

La experiencia en general. Disfrutar en familia de un descanso en pleno contacto con la naturaleza. El trato personal y profesional de Yair (una persona de 10) y su familia. La excelente comida de Ziza y la convivencia con dos familias estupendas.

En los 3 días que estuve en el centro de Yair y Ziza me he relajado tanto y me he recargado las pilas a tope con buena energía. Estuve alojada en casa Iris, una casa muy bien cuidado y tranquila. La comida vegetariana es espectacular y hecho con mucho amor. Las clases de yoga son cada vez diferentes, que me gusto mucho. Por causa del calor por la tarde, nos daba clase en la piscina. Ha sido una experiencia nueva y buenísima! Muchas gracias por todo!

I had a very special time on the 5-day retreat with Yair and Ziza. Set in such a peaceful location up in the mountains with fresh air and beautiful greenery, it felt a million miles away from fast-paced city life. Yair and Ziza are very open and kind and really welcome you into their home so if you are looking for an authentic and personal experience then this is it.

Yair is a fantastic yoga instructor paying keen attention to my form and energy, and Ziza's beautiful vegetarian food tasted so delectable that mere words are not enough to give an impression and it was presented so beautifully too! I was also invited to try the Biodanza whilst staying there, and I can recommend it even to those who are not 'dancers' usually! I myself will now pick up a class here in my home town.

The experience really helped me to recharge my spirit and I cannot recommend it enough to others. Thank you so much Yair and Ziza for all the love!

Biodanza Aquatica & Private Retreat July 2018

I have not long returned from a truly healing and nurturing experience at Armonia Alpajurra. After a week, I feel totally rejuvenated physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

The retreat is located in a beautiful setting with fantastic views and peaceful surroundings. From my first day, Yair and Ziza made every effort to get to know me personally and I felt totally spoilt the whole week I stayed, whether it was when I was on my own with them, with another guest Maria, or at the busier Biodanza weekend.

I benefited from so many different experiences - yoga sessions, in and out of the pool, the biodanza aquatica weekend, a trip to the beach, walking with Ziza and Rafa and his goats in the hills, healing, spiritual treatments from Yair and Ziza, delicious, healthy and abundant food cooked with love and thought by Ziza, interesting conversation and so much love and laughter….!

I would have happily stayed for another week (if only!) and I know I will go back. I cannot thank Yair and Ziza enough for helping to restore my inner peace and enabling me to get a better perspective on what is important in life.

For me, Armonia Alpajurra was a rare, life affirming experience.

I have just returned from a wonderful stay at Armonia Yoga. I spent ten days with Ziza and Yair and had a truly restorative experience. The location in the Alpujarras is spectacular and Ziza and Yair’s home and retreat is beautiful with wonderful uninterrupted views of the mountains. I stayed in the single yurt which was beautiful and it was great to be so close to nature, waking up to the sound of the birds in the morning. The temperature was also perfect, hot during the day and cooler at night which made the evenings and sleeping really comfortable.

The yoga with Yair was both fun and engaging – we did it both outdoors and in the pool. I also had some healing treatments with both Yair and Ziza which were deeply healing – reflexology and mind/body acupuncture.

I cannot thank Yair and Ziza enough for their warmth and hospitality. They were generous and kind hosts. Also the food cooked by Ziza was delicious and healthy and one of the highlights.

I have returned home to Ireland floating and feeling great.

I would highly recommend staying at Armonia Yoga.

“I fully recommend the experience, peace, and reconnection, that you can enjoy by staying at Armonia Alpujarra. I was there on my own for a few days (3 nights) and since day one I felt the warmth and good vibe of both Yair and Ziza. I got into yoga mornings and evenings, had acupuncture and shiatsu treatments, and enjoyed all the delicious and healthy meals.

It was my first time into something like that, but they make it so natural, and close, that it didn’t feel ‘new’, it just felt ‘right’.

You can go anytime in the year, but spring is a bonus, blooming flowers, and singing birds - you don’t need anything else! And, if you have time, combine your time at Armonia with some visit to any of the cities in Andalucía, Granada is close and amazing but also any of the other cities you can easily get by car or public transportation!”.

"This retreat was for me like a little ‘heaven of peace’ that I really needed after a few months of hard work. I loved the experience of living in a yurt in the middle of the beautiful nature up there. I also enjoyed very much the morning yoga and the treatments, delivered, heartfully, by my two hosts Yair and Ziza...and the food was so delicious. I hope I’ll be able to reproduce some of the nice meals proposed by Ziza in her recipe book. I definitely recommend this retreat... just go and let it flow, you won’t be disappointed ;) "

Thanks again for your warmth and kindness!
