This is so special! When she comes to the retreat, people who do not know nothing about her feel amazed with how strong is her presence!



Maria is well known and respected for her talents as a medicine woman, she has her roots in Chile, in the Andes mountain range.

The Energy cleaning she offers at the retreat is a work that uses elements of shamanism and ancient inherited traditions to access the most subtle field of people to be able, from there, to observe those aspects that must be purified to improve individual welfare.

She works with components of nature, because the main foundation is that every cure can be found in the simplest and most splendid origin of the Earth itself and in all its manifestations: plants, minerals, feathers, aromas, the voice … Through these tools (sacred chants, gem therapy, frictions prepared with plants, inhumanities, sweeps with feathers and wings of Holy birds, invocations and prayers …) it is possible to glimpse what, in the present or in the past, is hindering good flow in the different levels of Being, realigning and harmonizing it so, that the person served can continue on its path in a lighter and more resolute way and with a greater connection with the Universe and its gifts.

The whole experience is based on mystery and trust, firmness of purpose, devotion to the elements and, above all, love for Life and the Ancestors that come to visit during the cleanings to bring advice and memories of how to honor the existence and direct the personal path of each one towards a state of greater satisfaction.

The energy of our Chakras can be aligned, balanced and recharged through specific sound vibrations created from Sound healing instruments which are tuned in 440Hz and bridged down to 432Hz.


The vibration of the sounds penetrate the astral body not only unblocking but also synchronizing and expanding the natural circular movements of this centers of energy called Chakras.

The Sanskrit word Chakra can be translated as wheel , and it is a center of energy created by the intersection of many or big Nadis. The Nadis are also called meridians in Chinese Medicine and the Sanskrit word Nadis can be translated as river, so rivers where the energy flows in our subtle bodies.

I like to use this metaphor to explain what is a Chakra in a very simple way.

Just imagine that this nets of astral tubes called Meridians or Nadis are rivers. Now try to imagine a very big river like the Amazonas in Brazil, and your self sitting at the place where the Amazonas river intersects with the Paraná River and the Negro River. Where these 3 big rivers are crossing each other, you can see the water turning strongly in circular movements ,using this example as a metaphor this swirls of water would be like a Chakra in our energetic bodies.

Our Chakras are deeply affected by frequencies and vibrations produced by Sounds.

Our Retreat Sound Healer, Deva Alchi, created several special sound healing sessions which can be personalised according with your needs and goals. One of this sessions is the Chakra Balancing through Sound Immersion that you can individually experience in our Retreat.

The instruments used in this session are :

 21 Tibetan Bowls, Gongs planetary and wind (from 50cm to 1,60cm), 21 Gong Bells Plates 3 octaves, 7 Crystal Bowls chakra tuner,

The physical, emotional and spiritual benefits of massage are long and powerful, especially when paired with a mindful yoga practice. here you can see a list of the top  benefits and therapies  you can expect from this yoga & massage combination.


While yoga is well-known to improve the flexibility of the body by gradually increasing the length and stretch of your muscles, it can often also cause slight muscle soreness and fatigue. Massage however does well to increase the natural lubricants in and around the connective tissue of these muscles, reducing muscle aches and pains, improving recovery time and overall mobility of the body.

Both yoga and massage are powerful tools in stimulating the flow of fresh, healthy blood through your body and stimulate the production of new oxygen-rich blood cells that deeply nourish your organs, joints and extremities. When we are turning over oxygen-rich blood and allowing that to flow around our body we are better able to regulate our body temperature, heal injury and even lower blood pressure and relieve physiological stress in the body.

For many people yoga has become a daily source of stress relief, offering the mind and body a time to be completely present and mindful. However if we are practicing more active forms of yoga such as vinyasa or hot yoga, while these practices are greatly beneficial and have many health benefits themselves such as muscle toning and cardiovascular conditioning, they can also build physical stress in the body and sometimes even mental frustration if we cannot achieve, or hold a pose like the way we think we should. Massage however offers a complete surrender of the physical body and facilitates a deep state of relaxation and self care.


Here you can see a list of some therapies that we offer during our retreats:
Deep tissue: Uses the elbows and forearms to apply deep pressure, with focus to release pain.
Relaxing/ Aromatherapy: A slow healing massage that relaxes your nervous system and delight your senses.
​Thai oil massage: Energized contact, with focus to reduce muscle tension and balance energy.
Kahuna/Loomi Loomi: Profoundly relaxing, uses continuous circulatory movements to evoke sensations of rolling ocean waves. 
Bamboo therapy: Powerful pressures and percussions to aid detoxification and circulation.
Ayurvedic Gentle massage: based on ancient techniques to relax the muscles, mind and nervous system.
Signature massage: combination of different techniques adapted to your needs.

The benefits of massage therapy after or before Yoga increase when the therapist is also a Yoga teacher or a Yogi.

Our therapist Esther Triviño for the past thirteen years, and from the magical island of Ibiza, has been empowering private clients to fully experience the sensations of profound wellness – through yoga, massage and gestalt therapy.
Both Esther’s in-depth knowledge of body and mind, and her intuitive capacity to read, understand and navigate each individual’s requirements, enable her to offer an entirely bespoke service, with every treatment and yoga session.

We breathe as we live, and we live as we breathe!

Conscious breathing therapy  also known as Rebirthing breath-work is a healing therapy based on conscious and continuous breathing of vital energy.



In our Ibiza Yoga Retreat you have the opportunity to try different types of holistic therapies which will help you in the process of achieving a deeper sense of inner peace and harmony.

One of this therapies is Conscious breathing also known as Rebirthing breath-work.

During a session, Laila accompanies you to gently release physical, mental and emotional tensions or traumas locked in your system by increasing the flow of oxygen into your body in a soft way. Just by breathing you learn to expand your capacity to feel, open the heart more and widen your consciousness about yourself. Her work with breath is gentle, giving special attention and care to the integration of your experience in your life.


Although major benefits are attained better with long-term treatments, one session can bring profound good changes in life. Benefits of breath vary a lot for each person and session: it may increase vitality and concentration, bring clarity and presence, release toxins and harmful chemical substances from the body, oxygenise cells, open diaphragm, lower anxiety, increase immunity, balance metabolic system, improve self-confidence, and harmonise mental, emotional and energetic bodies.


Our therapist , Laila, is a breath-work practitioner and psychotherapist with 8 years of experience. She is also a passionate doula and conscious birth educator. Currently training in body-oriented psychotherapy at the Netherlands School of Core Energetics (NICE), she is committed to her own healing journey as well as of all human beings. By holding the space with presence and tender compassion, she accompanies you to discover and embrace more of who you really are. What inspires her work is the beauty that exists in the process of every person that wants to find truth in herself.

venusgroet_page_2This article was published in the Yoga Magazine some years ago, the photographer is Bonitta Postman and we did this photo shooting in one of my favourite places in Ibiza, Punta Galera.

It is truly amazing the colours of this rocks formations and when you are there you can enjoy fabulous sunsets.

I did not know before that day this sequence “ the Venus Salutation” until I was asked to do it for the magazine, it seems that helps in balancing feminine energy and it is also a heart opener. In case you want to vary from Sun or Moon salutations , maybe you try this one. Open the link to see it and enjoy practicing!
