Reviews

Surrounded by the beautiful landscape of the Alpujarras Maya and Felix will guide you on a journey of personal growth, strength and reflection.

Teaching you to work in harmony with the elements and the breath. I have never felt so at peace with myself.

I know I cannot retreat forever, but by bringing home this philosophy and practice I feel I am in a strong place to slowly change my world for the better.

Thank you both for your unconditional love and nurturing, sharing your spirits with us.
