"Everything you need !!! "

I adored this 7 days at heartful motion. It is not only a yoga and meditation retreat, it is a full spiritual experience. Santi, Julia and Tara and other the volunteer makes this séjour à superbe time. They are very professional and experimented. They put a lot of love in what they are doing and it makes the whole difference. Not only do we do yoga and meditation session but also , shakra unlock, mantra singing, gong and drum sessions, tarot and more. The house is super clean and what can I say about the food !!!! Oh.. it feels like the food they are making nourishes not only your body but your soul! Truly! I highly recommand this yoga retreat with Julia and santi. And it is only 1 minute walk from the beach so during your free time, a little swim makes it even more perfect. Thanks guys.

"Wonderful retreat, soul food for mind and body"

The reception and introduction was carried out by Julia, who was warm and welcoming and thorough in explaining everything I needed to know about the house, the schedule, the environment and of course the wonderful cats! The team who cook and clean are also warm and friendly and very helpful. The programme was mindful, respectful and had depth and the instructors were able to hold the space and support participants at whichever level they wished to go. The second instructor Tara relayed instruction and gave feedback in both Spanish and English which felt so inclusive and enabled the participants to get to know each other. Both Julia and Tara presented as experienced in yoga and yoga philosophy and very able to use their knowledge and skills appropriately. There was a general sense of peace and tranquility in the environment and amongst the team that made Heartful Motion a haven of peace and restorative healing. And to top it all off the taxi driver was interested in meaningful conversation!

"Destino ideal para relajarse y estar con uno mismo."

El esquema del retiro con los distintos tipos de practica, las meditaciones en silencio y la posibilidad de disponer de tiempo libre para interiorizar lo que la actividad iba generando en mi. También me ha gustado la calidez de todos y la dedicación de los voluntarios (sobre todo en la creación y la preparación de la comida!)

"Super verblijf "

Geweldig locatie vlak bij het strand met volop yoga, meditatie en andere spirituele sessies.

De kamers zijn eenvoudig maar goed en het eten was uitstekend.

Heerlijk verblijf daar gehad.

"Truely Yoga Philosohy"

Yoga philosophy in every aspect. This place is perfect if you want to move on in your life. Dont try to change the place or the teacher. Embrace it and be curious of what might come. For me the magic started after 3 nigits. Preferences in live are most individuel so i will not rate the questions 2-4. Its for everyone to explore for themselves. Heartful thank you to Julia and Santi.

"A very relaxing and fulfilling experience"

The whole program was very well constructed and executed. I loved the non judging environment, the warmth of both the instructors and the people staying there. I always felt safe and accepted. All the cats running around made the experience even more fullfilling :)

The accomodation was homely, I felt welcome and a part of the community. There was a lot of effort put intro preparing the food, we always had a lot of options to choose from and never hungry.

The location is remote, close to the beach, very calm, but also easily accesible by public transport and taxi.

They provide everything for you to have a relaxing, mindful and spiritual stay. You just have to bring positive attitude and openness to the experience :)

"Not recommended"

The nearby beach is gorgeous. The guests and volunteers were very lovely


from Germany, April 2024

"Variation of meditation & yoga "

- Meditation, yin yoga & hatha yoga, Breath-work, counsellation-therapy etc..

- distance to the sea

- familiarly flaire of the house with nice garden

- communication and interaction with the participants and instructors


from Great Britain, April 2024

"My disappointing experience "

There was a nice sea nearby which I enjoyed. I met some lovely volunteers and attendees that I’ll keep in touch with but I will not be returning to this retreat.

Irma Gudziunaite

from Belgium, April 2024

"An excellent yoga retreat close to the seaside"

Well prepared yoga classes, offering not only physical exercise and stretching, but also yoga philosophy and spiritual experiences. We were a couple, I was pregnant in my 26-27 weeks, Santi and Julia paid a lot of attention to it and adapted my postures with care. We had a great double room and saw the sea from the window. The sea is a couple of minutes walk, the house has a garden where, given a good weather, lunches and dinners are offered. Food is prepared by volunteers and yoga teachers, good quality products, always fresh, not culinary highlights but always healthy and tasty. The place is easily accessible from Valencia airport by train, going the last 10 minutes with a local taxi driver - which was super easy to arrange using the contact given by the retreat. The area of the retreat is calm and not crowded, so you can enjoy some sun and sea in peace during the rest time. Thank you, Julia and Santi, for sharing your beautiful home with love and care ❤️

"Disappointing in several aspects"

The location was close to the sea and a long beach. There were lovely guests and volunteers and I'm grateful for the nice conversations and connections we shared. The yoga teacher Julia is a kind and empathetic person, taking an effort to connect with her guests and guiding the systemic constellation with care.

"The best Yoga retreat to recharge"

The location is great - isolated enough to relax yet easy to reach with public transport + Taxi.

The instructors are super professional and helpful - I came for 5 days and went out with value for life; feeling confident to take the learning material home for self practice.

This retreat is HIGHLY recommended, will definitely come back!

Felix Jimenz Velando

from Spain, January 2024

Centro bien acondicionado, un amplio jardín, el mar cerca, las clases. No es un retiro de dos o tres horas de yoga al día, son más.

La comida. Soy celiaco y aunque no están especializados en comida sin gluten procuraron que tuviera comida muy rica durante todos los días en los que estuve allí.


from Spain, January 2024

"Volver a casa mucho mejor"

Desconexión y paz desde que entras en la casa, gran dedicación del equipo. Muy buenas sesiones de yoga, meditación y filosofía del yoga. Excelente comida casera vegetariana.

"Safe space for everyone to practice and enjoy "

I came for two weeks over Christmas break and New Year’s and even though I never had been before, I immediately felt at home, welcomed as if I came to visit good old friends. I loved the rhythm of the house and practice, I find it well balanced between a schedule (asana and meditation sessions and the periods of silence), and free time and chat and fun. I have some years of asana and meditation experience and found the sessions useful for both experienced and less experienced. No judgement, no stress, but space to learn and experience and I appreciate that. I may have been lucky but also all the volunteers and participants were very nice and open minded.

I would also like to point out Julia’s constellations- they were deep and emotional. Even though some participants were new to it and a bit nervous, she created safe space for everyone.

I loved the food too, vegan and very nourishing.

I would (and will) recommend to a friend 🙂. But if you’re an asana (or other) ego maniac, and I’ve seen a few in my intense ashtanga and iyengar years, or you like the expensive luxury fancy retreats, it maybe is not for you. Or maybe it is, but be nice. Hugs to all 👋🥰

"Excelente retiro"

De lo mejor que he probado, he repetido porque la calidad de las clases es excelente. Santi es un maravilloso profesor y anfitrión, pero también los demás profesores. Es un retiro sumamente enriquecedor. La combinación de la filosofía yogui y el rigor de las clases lo hacen muy completo. Lo recomiendo 100%.


from Netherlands, December 2023

Be mindfull yoga is an amazing retreat, full of beautiful souls, great yoga teachers and amazing volunteers, delicious vegan food and good vibes. Close to a lovely beach where we even had a morning yoga session. And I can recommend the massages from miquel.

"Transformational Experience"

What a life changing week this was! When I came to this retreat I had a lot of knowledge on mindfulness, meditation, life purpose and experience in Vinyasa and Yin yoga. But these were just standalone concepts for me, that I needed to do to hopefully feel more balanced. This retreat brought this all together and to life, I could really feel and live the experience. Thank you to teachers Ana-Clara, Ashelen and Santiago, now Mindful Yoga is not just a concept, it is a practice full of life where Yang and Yin come together. I also want to thank beautiful souls Siina, Nora, Damian and Arnando for making me feel like home and welcome <3

Keep bringing life to many more people you will be coming to your home and hope to meet you again soon!

Give a warm hug to Poppy from me ^_^

"Low quality yoga instruction from inexperienced teachers"

BMY Centre offers a relaxing environment and there is a picturesque beach close by. The place is mainly suited to attracting individuals wanting a laid-back escape from their stressful lives. However it falls short in providing a comprehensive and enriching yoga experience.

Stella Tran

from Great Britain, October 2023

"Peaceful and beautiful retreat near the beach!"

From the moment I arrived I felt welcome like a friend, cared for like family and taken on a journey of self discovery and love. I left the place feeling blissful and deeply grateful to Shanti and his team for lifting us and sharing the essence of yoga and meditation with wisdom, humility and a loving heart. The sandy beach nearby is a real gem, different types of yoga catered for all levels in a spacious yoga studio, the instruments used during the sessions (e.g. sound bowls, the gong..), the delicious food, the discussions sessions…

"First timers"

The yoga instructors were wonderful, the people we met were so diverse and interesting and the peacefulness and acceptance we felt was out of this world.

Carmel Weinberger

"Beautiful, peaceful oasis! "

This trip was SO much better than I’d expected. The volunteers are such beautiful people and made the experience super special.

The practice taught by Annie and aye were full of not just general yoga, but open dialogue circles, philosophy and special sound healing sessions and meditation.

The food made by volunteers was something I looked forward to every day (even not being a vegan) and im missing it so much already!

The house is in a peaceful area and only a two minute walk from the beach which was perfect to spend your free time every day in the sun.

Francisca Perez

la acogida, el lugar, la sala, los ejercicios practicados alternando esfuerzo y relajacion, el dormitorio, la cercania de la playa, el ambiente familiar, el cariño de todos sus componentes, la comida, las instalaciones sanitarias.oara mi ha sido un aprendizaje completo para cuerpo mente espiritu. Gracias infinitas a todo el equipo, a Anni, Damian, Arnaldo, Sophie,Ayelen? y Shanti, todos y cada uno en su rôle han sido formidables.

"Lasting experience in a remote location with lovely people"

The retreat is situated in a lovely remote area just two minutes from a beautiful calm beach. Santi and the entire crew have created a peaceful place to disconnect as much as you wish with authentic yoga, musical instruments, breathing techniques, deep conversations and delicious vegan/vegetarian food. There is no luxury but still everything you really need. The rooms are uniquely furnished and painted. In the yoga studio you can see the sun rise and the birds chirping, which is truly magical. Food is served in the garden and on the veranda. The entire atmosphere is very familiar and warm and the crew is amazing.

Thank you Santi, Alex, Ani, Armando, Aye, Damián and Sophie for this wonderful time & the enriching experience!

Lots of love, Anne

Marcos Aguiar

from Spain, October 2023

Grateful for having had the opportunity to spend a week at Be Mindful Yoga. Grateful for the practices, the silence and the wisdom shared.

A big shout out to all the volunteers and teachers. They're the ones actually making the magic happen every day.

Sometimes in life we don't get what we want. Instead, we get what we need, which is much better.

"Excelentes profesores "

He estado tres días especiales, pero la calidad de las clases ha sido para mi lo mejor de todo. Desde luego pienso repetir en cuanto tenga ocasión. Las habitaciones muy buenas y confortables. Todo muy bien organizado y los responsables super amables.

La estructura del alojamiento muy bien, la playa maravillosa, las clases de yoga bien

Christine Lynskey

from Great Britain, September 2023

"Great yoga retreat by the beach :)"

Amazing location, one minute from a beautiful and quiet beach. Food was always exceptional quality; all vegetarian, delicious and nourishing. Fruit and herbal teas are always available if you need a snack with a 'help yourself' vibe. Yoga and meditation instruction is authentic and excellent quality for beginners and experienced yogis alike in a bright studio - three and a half hour sessions support a deep practice.

My sea view room was bright, clean and peaceful. Bathrooms are shared - not an issue for me as they were always extremely clean and available, but just something to know if you are expecting a private bathroom.

Santi has created a beautiful space on nature's doorstep where you can disconnect as much as you wish, and supported by a team of wonderful volunteers :)

"Perfect place to go for a life changing yoga retreat"

Wat een geweldige tijd heb ik gehad bij Santiago en zijn team.

Alles was even heerlijk: de yogalessen, de ademsessies, de prachtige muziek het mantrazingen, de mensen, de zee, de zon en niet te vergeten al die prachtige poesjes!

De lessen van Santi waren heel fijn, ook de meisjes uit Uruguay waren goede docenten. Het eten wordt met liefde bereid. Werkelijk overheerlijk! De groep wisselt regelmatig, het was jammer om mensen te zien vertrekken, de nieuwe mensen waren echter ook allemaal even aardig. En het is wat Santi zegt: pas als je afscheid neemt van het oude, is er weer ruimte voor iets nieuws.

De zee is echt op een minuut lopen afstand. En het strand is heel rustig. Ik heb de prachtigste zonsopkomsten gezien.

Je kunt lopend naar het volgende dorpje. Ook via het strand, dit duurt ongeveer 20 minuten. Maar waarom zou je? Santi's huis en het strand hebben alles wat je je wenst.

Het was een heel fijne ervaring. Ik ben blij dat ik voor deze retreat heb gekozen en hoop nog eens terug te kunnen keren. Ik heb werkelijk genoten.

Dank je wel, Santi en alle andere lieve mensen.


from Germany, August 2023

"Interessante Erfahrung "

Es wurde alles sehr gut erklärt, es wurde jeden Tag gefragt, wie es einen geht und man durfte sich in der Gruppe austauschen. Ich habe viel über Yoga kennenlernen dürfen sowohl über die physischen als auch mentalen Praktiken- bisher habe ich es nur als Workout betrachtet, was aus fernöstlicher Sicht nicht stimmt.

Das Essen wurde immer sehr liebevoll und frisch zubereitet- Urlaub pur. Man musste sich darum keine Gedanken machen.


from Spain, August 2023

"Fue un experiencia espectacular!"

He estado en otros retiros, también agusto, porque la combinación de yoga con comida sana y ambiente relajado siempre viene bien. Pero en este caso ha sido muy especial porque es un yoga más cercano a "tú realidad", no es como meterse en una burbuja que luego resulta estar muy lejos de tu día a día. Shanti compartió su casa en sentido literal y en sentido figurado.

"So great "

It was very enriching and wonderful time for by Santiago & his team. It is like visiting a good friend in the country, the atmosphere is very familiar and warm. The place itself, the people and animals have an incredibly positive energy. Santi makes a very practical and down to earth teaching but also very profound and through this you learn a lot for life. The vegetarian and gluten free food is incredibly good. He also has a lot of great instruments, which he skillfully incorporates into the lessons. I would love to visit Santi again.

Thank you Santi! I will think of you whenever I dance with my breath. Smile, why not? 🥰

"Excelente retiro :)"

Solo tengo palabras de agradecimiento para Santi y todos los voluntarios que forman parte de este maravilloso retiro. Santi transmite paz y nos llenó de sabiduría compatiendo todo su conocimiento, un respiro de aire fresco para desconectar y volver a conectar. La localización es inmejorable, la playa maravillosa y la comida estupenda. Gracias de nuevo a todo el equipo, volveremos seguro. Namastè :) Un super abrazo

"Welcoming, homely and enlightening "

The retreat was, as described in other reviews, a home away from home. Santi and the other staff were all amazing. It was interesting to learn about various breathing techniques and learn more about what meditation means to me. Although there was a set routine, each session was varied. The location is brilliant and right on the beach. I would recommend this retreat to someone seeking a countryside escape with plenty of meditation and mindfulness.

"Absolutely amazing"

If you are looking for meditation and yoga next to the sea side, this is your place! The house and the location are absolutely peaceful, while the sessions are absolutely great. Even though silence is mandatory during certain moments of the day, the whole environment encourages to self reflect. The food (and the staff!!) were incredibly great as well... super healthy and very creative.


from Luxembourg, May 2023

"Healing inside and out:)"

I didn't know what to expect when i joined the retreat. It turned out to be one of the most spiritual retreats I have ever experienced. Shanti shares all his wisdom and knowledge at the right place and the right time. If you look for a hideaway and turning inwards, finding answers to your questions, this is the best place. Everyone made me feel at home, safe, and loved. Thank you for the experience. I will come again.

Vanesa Felip Torrent

from Spain, April 2023


Me gustó el ambiente que se respiraba. La cordialidad y amabilidad de Shanti y del resto de las personas que allí vivían o se hospedaban, los tiempos de silencio, que lejos de ser incómodos te permitían disfrutar de la experiencia, las clases de yoga, intensas y muy satisfactorias, incluidas las conversaciones con las que las iniciábamos y que te permiten compartir, si te apetece hacerlo, tus propias vivencias.

Ludmilla Giry-gonzalez

"Una experiencia muy especial, intensa y sanadora"

Gracias a todos los miembros de la casa BeMindfulYoga por esta experiencia increible: Santi, Eugevnia, Marco, Julian y gatos family :).

Me encontré primero con personas con una luz y una generosidad muy especial. Tambien he podido conectar con los otros huespedes y compartir ese lindo momento con ellos.

Las clases de yoga son de alta calidad y Santi es extremadamente rigoroso, profesional y con una dedicacion y una pasion por lo que hace que te hace conectar de inmediato con la practica.

La practica es de casi 5h/dia y cada dia Santi le pone la misma generosidad.

He sentido muchos beneficios al nivel fisico como al nivel emocional, y la semana pasada en la casa fue un verdadero oasis de paz. Vuelvo a casa con una muy linda energia.

La comida es tambien excelente y muy variada, la playa esta a un minuto y es muy agradable (no hay nadie y el paisaje es muy bonito). Las habitaciones son impecables y muy comodas.

Todo eso participa a la gran sensacion de paz que uno siente estando alla.

Les deseo lo mejor para todos.

Es muy probable que regrese a vivir la experiencia ;)

Mientras tanto buena vida, gracias por compartir esos conocimientos con nosotros y namasté <3

"Life changing experience"

I spend 5 days at Be Mindful Yoga retreat and it was such a great experience. The food and the location by the sea were incredible and so was the treatment. Shanti is an amazing teacher with realistic and useful advices to apply on your day to day life. Every class was so different, well prepared and purposeful and we created such a beautiful community. So I highly recommend it to anyone new or experienced in yoga and mindfulness who wants to have a break or have the space to answer life questions. From my heart thank you, thank you, thank you :) Ana

"Einkehr zu mir selbst- Erholung pur!"

Sehr liebevolles Umfeld, Santiago, der Betreiber und sein ganzes Team gehen sehr achtsam mit den Gästen und untereinander um. Hier wird nicht nur Yoga und Meditation praktiziert, sondern diese Philosophie mit in den Alltag eingebunden.

Was mir besonders gut gefallen hat:

- Yoga- und Meditation jeweils mit Einführungen in die Yogi-Kultur und Hintergründe

- das unglaublich entspannende Yin-Yoga

der Nachmittags/Abendsession

-super leckere Essen aus Biogemüse, frisch zubereitet ist unvergleichlich schmackhaft

- das Schweigen während des Abendessens war eine wohltuende neue Erfahrung für mich

- die Ruhe des Hauses

- die Nähe zum Meer und zum Sandstrand, an dem man auch für sich verweilen bzw. lange Spaziergänge machen kann

"Game changer"

My stay at Be Mindful Yoga was something of a life saver. Being received with love for six days of calm presence, wise guidance and sunny walks on the beach, was not only the health boost I needed but a profound experience. More than anything thanks to the wisdom and compassion of Shanti. He saw me as I am, and gave my worst fears and issues a warm embrace and a wise way forward. I was deeply and positively moved by my experience at Be Mindful Yoga, and I will be going back.

Sarah Finke

"Wonderful experience with amazing people"

Peaceful location steps away from an awesome, quiet beach. Great lessons, experienced and openhearted instructors, delicious home cooked meals - it felt like a home away from home. Everyone made me feel welcome and I am very grateful for the insights and exchanges, discussions of yoga history and practices. Very enriching experience.

Rosalia Muñoz

from Spain, March 2023

"Una experiencia mágica "

Al principio cuando llegamos, necesité unas horas para “adaptarme” al entorno.

La cena en silencio el primer día fue incómoda, pero conforme fueron pasando las horas, cada vez me sentía más a gusto, más en paz, más conectada. Es un lugar especial y Santi y las personas que trabajan con él lo hacen aún más especial. Ha sido una experiencia increíble para reconectar conmigo misma.

Un dato curioso es que hay muchísimos gatos alrededor y dos de ellos entran en la casa. Soy alérgica y no he tenido ni un signo de alergia en los 4 días que he pasado allí.

Otro dato positivo es que puedes ir en cualquier momento de la semana, no son fechas fijas lo que lo hace accesible para todo el mundo.

Muchísimas infusiones, frutos secos y fruta disponibles todo el tiempo. Muchísimo tiempo y dedicación detrás de lo que no se ve.

Estoy deseando volver pronto.

Iris De Nobel

"The perfect getaway"

I spent five days and four nights at the retreat and I'm still enjoying the benefits of it the next week. If you need a break from your routine, some introspection, delicious homemade meals and fresh seaside air, this is the place to be. Thanks very much to everyone at Be Mindfulyoga.

Side note: getting there by public transport from Valencia airport is very easy: metro ->train->taxi. Just ask for advice when booking ;)

"Peaceful oasis for meditation "

This retreat was nothing short of life changing for me. I arrived not really knowing what to expect, and found so much peace and love in Santiago’s house. Having “done” yoga for six years, I was humbled by the wholistic and non-dogmatic principles of yoga and mediation that Santi shared with me. As I was working through some hard things, Santi offered me so much kindness and was able to hold space for me. This place is certainly not a luxury resort, but it is very special. The program is challenging and varies every day but is flexible enough that you can have the amount of quiet time that you need. The food was wholesome, fresh and delicious. I slept like a rock on the firm mattress. The cats were an adorable added bonus too! ♥️ 🐱 ✌🏻 🕉️ 🙂


from Great Britain, January 2023

"Wow - I feel uplifted "

This has to be one of the most wonderful yoga retreat experiences I have ever had. Huge gratitude to Santiago who made me feel so welcome and cared for. He is an Angel in human form

! I travelled alone and was at the yoga house at a quiet period and despite this I felt so confident in being myself, and was made to feel at home. The food was absolutely delicious, vegan, nutritious, full of flavour and abundant . The yoga and meditation was mind blowing to say the least. I have learnt so much about life, myself, and how you can really go internally to find the answers and ultimately love. I really felt the love in this yoga house and I’m looking forward to going back already. I miss Santi and the team! Thank you so much to Santi - you are a wonderful soul with so much compassion,

Wisdom and love and truly an Angel walking with this earth. Sending much love and gratitude from London.

"Más que una experiencia, un cambio en la forma de vida"

Combinar yoga, meditación, playa y silencio... ha sido genial. Desde que he regresado, no he vuelto a encender la tele, ni la radio, ni a beber vino en la comida... jjjj.. He integrado de forma ya diaria el yin yoga y sobre todo el silencio, como forma de reconectar conmigo y encontrar la serenidad que necesitaba. Pero sobre todo, me llevo en el corazón a Santi, a Stef, y a Romana... Gracias por hacerme sentir parte de vosotros. Os deseo una Feliz Vida!!

Lovely people, authentic and passionate about what they do… thanks for making me feel part of your little family:)

Despite my short stay, I had the bliss to experience many precious moments and to learn loads of interesting and valuable things!

Food was nutritious, diverse and made with love daily, the location is peaceful and charming, and everything was well organised

It was great to enjoy a few days of slow life at bemindfulyoga and will make the best use I can of all your tips🙏🏻

"It was an awesome time. The energy is very high frequented."

All members of the team are open hearted and really experienced. The retreat was full of love and respect. We learned a lot about breathing techniques, yoga, meditation and had a lot of fun together. It is absolutely authentic and all of the teachers are connected to the source in their ways. For sure there is no luxury or stuff like that but they have all you need. It is clean, the food is very delicious and healthy. The light in the shala is awesome, especially in the morning. Thank you so much for the great time!

"A wonderful retreat for inner peace"

I spent 6 days at Be Mindful Yoga and it was amazing. This retreat helped me reconnect with myself.

I loved the variety of activities (yoga, meditation, mantras, singing bowls, gong). Everything was perfect : food, location, accommodation, people…

Thank you so much !

"Beautiful People With Beautiful Ideas"

A fantastic experience for me from some fantastic teachers who had interesting knowledge of the spirit.

Each day was a truly healthy lifestyle; 16 hours fasting, 5-6 hours yoga and meditation, vegan food (no meat, no gluten). Silent mindful eating. A practical glimpse of something like a monastic grounding, humble lifestyle for 4 days. Something the whole western world desperately needs.

I learned to meditate, I think I managed some small moments of bliss and I want to build on that.

The facilities were everything you needed, bed was comfortable. Showers were hot and powerful. The building was kept clean despite it having been well used over the busy summer. There was an old guitar that I loved the sound of.

"Renovación total de enetgias"

Fue una experiencia increíble. Tanto santi como los chicos que viven (Stef, Valentina y Marco) son personas increíbles con mucha paz y mucha empatía. Fui no sabiendo muy bien que iba a hacer pero me llevo el cuerpo cargado de energia re linda y habiendo concientizado un monton de cosas. Comida excelente y super sana y ademas la casa super limpia. Cerca de la playa donde no va mucha gente, lo que la hace mas linda aun.

"Enchanting, changing, loving"

We had an unforgettable time at Be Mindful Yoga. Right at the beginning you are part of the family, but you can choose to have more or less time to yourself. The classes were moving and personal for both of us, the yoga teachers inspiring. We found the vegan and gluten-free food to be really fantastic (and even more awesome when there was even dessert to go with it!). The accommodation is just a few minutes walk from a gorgeous beach. If you want to get to work with yourself in a heartfelt place and learn more about mindfulness, this is the place for you. If you have any problems or questions, everyone in the house is always happy to help.


from Switzerland, September 2022

"Yoga=great, Facilities=total disappointment"

Great yoga experience with Steffi. She was great at explaining what and why we are doing, correcting our poses. She is really great teacher and understood that we are not all yoga experts. Shanti did not correct our poses and it was almost impossible to hear what he was saying.

Yoga experience overall was fantastic.

"Increíble "

Fue una experiencia muy bonita y en todo momento me sentí súper a gusto y acogida por todos los miembros de la casa. La práctica de yoga muy acertada y con momentos de compartir pensamientos y experiencias muy enriquecedores. La comida brutal, riquísima y se notaba que estaba hecha con mucho amor! La casa y la ubicación ideal para en los ratos libres ir a la playa, pasear y meditar frente al mar. Una experiencia totalmente recomendable para profundizar en la práctica de yoga y aprender de las grandes personas que allí se encuentran totalmente predispuestas a compartir des de un total amor y respeto por el yoga. Namasté 💚🙏🏻

"Mi experiencia en BeMindfulYoga"

Me encantó. Es un lugar que te relaja y donde te sientes como en casa. Está muy cerca de la playa y encuentras personas muy bonitas alli!

"Mindful indeed"

I loved my stay at Be mindful yoga. Shanti and his staff were so welcoming. Felt like I was visiting my friends. The beach was so close and a great variation on the classes. Food was delicious and very healthy. Overall great experience, felt very relaxed and mindful when I left and would love to visit again.

"La mejor experiencia que he podido tener en mis vacaciones"

Ha sido mi primer contacto con el yoga y me alegro mucho de que fuese así. Entrar en el mundo de yoga con este equipo es un viaje que te abre un nuevo universo de posibilidades en tu vida. La profundidad, calidad y manera de vivir el yoga aqui, hace que experimentes la vida desde otra perspectiva y en definitiva que puedas actuar, pensar, sentir desde otro sitio al que estás acostumbrado.

Recomiendo mucho a personas que como yo nunca han hecho yoga y quieran abrir una puerta hacia una nueva forma de entender la vida.

Las personas que componen el equipo, sin palabras, personas increíbles que te hacen sentir muy bien.

El entorno en el que está, inmejorable

Gracias por todo (que ha sido mucho) mis mejores deseos, ojalá encontrarnos de nuevo.

"Experiencia maravillosa."

La casa y su gente tiene una energia super bonita. Las horas de yoga y meditación era exactamente lo que buscaba. Aprendi cosas nuevas. Me encanto los momentos de silencio. Y lo compartidoY aprendido en silencio. Mi cuerpo y mi mente se relajaron un montón, me vi meditar por mas de 1 hora, sin moverme y en paz. Lo que nunca antes me habia pasado. Creo que levité y eso en a penas 4 días.

Me gusto la humildad de la gente de ahí dispuestos a compartir, y a aprender de los que vienen. El tú a tú, donde me enseñaron a hacer invertidas.

Me fui descansada y reconectada, Centrada y con cositas que llevar a mi rutina. En esa casa el yoga es un estilo de vida, no un deporte para llenar el agenda y ser kool. Y hay mucho que aprender.

Las comidas deliciosas y hechas con amor. La playa a 50m. El Silencio. Super recomendado.

Y larga vida a Be Mindful yoga.

Fue la experiencia mas magica,conmovedora y impactante de mi vida! En este lugar precioso,lleno de Paz y Amor puro encontre a mi misma. Infinitas gracias Santi y todo el equipo por acompanarme en este proceso lindo, en tan solo una semana me siento renacida…porque la soy! ❤️❤️❤️


from France, June 2022

The yoga experience was a journey in self discovery through various forms of yoga and meditation, sometimes uncomfortable, but ultimately rewarding. This is not just a yoga class where you will run through a load of postures and leave again. I also really liked the teachings on the philosophies of yoga. The opportunity to participate in the tamaskal ceremony was a real high to end my week. I would definitely re-book and recommend to someone looking for a deeper experience, not just a commercial retreat

"Yoga to the sound of birds and a gentle ocean breeze "

Shanti is a dedicated teacher who shares his knowledge and wisdom compassionately. His emphasis on yoga breathing added to my good experiences there. I enjoyed the yoga dance and yin yoga. Shanti and his helpers have created a relaxed and friendly special space.

"Beautiful, inspiring, relaxing"

Great location in absolute calm just 1 min walk from a beautiful beach. 2 yoga lessons per day, with stimulating Vinyasa in the morning and incredibly relaxing Yin yoga in the afternoon. Delicious vegan meals prepared by Santi's creative team were a highlight (every day different dishes)! I had a truly relaxing and regenerating stay (emotionally and physically) that inspired me to make more positive choices in my life. Thank you Santi for this outstanding experience!

"jedes Mal noch besser ( ich war das 3. Mal da)"

Shanti lehrt nicht Yogastellungen oder Meditation, er lebt und teilt seine Lebenshaltung mit jedem, der es möchte.

Zudem ist die ruhige Lage 3 Minuten vom Meeresstrand entfernt und das liebevoll zubereitete Essen einmalig.

"Experiencia Altamente recomendable :-) "

La experiencia ha sido muy positiva. Tanto Santiago como el resto de colaboradores te hacen sentir muy cómodo desde el minuto uno.

El ambiente en la casa es super acogedor y muy distendido.

Las sesiones de yoga y meditación adaptadas al nivel e intereses del grupo.

Y la comida, ALUCINANTE. Cocina con mucho cariño. Un placer para los sentidos.

"Second visit but probably my last."

I returned to this venue as my visit in January 2020 had been a real pleasure. The volunteers cooks were very talented and provided good quality fresh food on a daily basis. The location is easy to reach and convenient for the beach.


from Belgium, April 2022

"pure yoga"

Zeer aangenaam verrast door de lessen van Santiago! Yoga zoals het hoort, geen ego gedoe maar je steeds meer bewust worden en overgeven aan de essentie van het leven. Ben zelf een ervaren yogini en kon me helemaal overgeven aan de houdingen en in sommige nog meer ruimte in het lichaam kunnen ervaren . Santi begeleidt en respecteert elke yogi , geeft voldoende opties zodat iedereen zijn of haar weg naar binnen kan vinden. Sommige topics werden besproken en ook dat heb ik ervaren als meerwaarde.

De accomodatie is eenvoudig maar goed onderhouden. De verwarmde vloer in de veranda voelt erg prettig aan tijdens de lighoudingen en de eindontspanning, zeker wanneer het buiten winderig en regenachtig was.

De lunch en het avondeten was telkens een feest voor het oog en de innerlijke mens, petje af aan de vrijwilligers die met passie elke lekkere maaltijd met liefde hebben bereid. Ik vond het ook aangenaam om hiervan in stilte te kunnen genieten maar soms werd er wel te snel naar mijn gevoel afgeruimd ( omdat de stilte dan verbroken mocht worden? )

Als ik later niet meer rekening moet houden met de schoolvakanties en een goedkopere vlucht kan vinden dan zou ik graag nog eens terug komen voor een langere periode om me helemaal in de good yoga vibes te laten onderdompelen.

"Primera experiencia en un retiro inolvidable❤️"

Todo ha sido maravilloso, por supuesto gracias a las personas que lo hacen posible. El instructor de yoga, Shanti, que con tanto amor y pasión nos ha guiado en estos días de autoconocimiento. Los voluntarios, Marco y Rihanna, siempre amables y sonrientes, ha sido un placer conocerlos a todos.

La ubicación es excelente, cerca de Cullera pero lo suficientemente lejos para crear un ambiente totalmente relajado y ajeno a la civilización. A 3 min a pie de una playa de arena tranquila (al menos en febrero).

La casa es grande y las habitaciones son confortables. Yo compartí habitación con una huésped alemana y la experiencia ha sido muy bonita. Compartimos ratos y charlas muy especiales.

La comida es extraordinaria, preparada por los voluntarios con mucho cariño. He disfrutado cada bocado. Recetas muy sabrosas, elaboradas con productos en su mayoría ecológicos, frescos, generalmente vegano, aunque son flexibles y alguna vez se incluyen huevos y hay miel si te apetece.

Me queda decir que siendo mi primer retiro de yoga y sin saber qué esperar, ha resultado totalmente reparador e inolvidable, y si tengo oportunidad volveré a repetir.

Gracias por todo. Namasté 🙏🏼

"Meditation as a way of living "

The whole experience was as it should be. I had a cozy room for myself with a sea view. The food was better than in many restaurants, everything crazy healthy and fresh. The classes were gentle and mindful. I am pregnant and Santiago prepared very effectively to adjust many positions. Learning how to stay with my emotions and discomfort during meditation was the hardest one. Yin classes were crazy relaxing. Sound healing sessions were really great. There's one minute to the beach. But there's not much more in Cullera to explore so the place is really made to focus inwards. I'm very grateful for this experience where I could remind myself about the philosophy of yoga and the importance of everyday meditation.

"Best physical and emotional therapy ever!"

Full of yoga methods and mindfulness that was accessible and so very helpful. Much love and caring. More to yoga and meditation than I knew. I was introduced to many better ways of dealing with inner and outer conflict.


from Germany, February 2022

"Wonderful Yoga Retreat!"

This place has such a lovely and good vibe! There from the first moment on, you feel heartwarmingly welcome and integrated as a part of the yoga family.

When I was there, we had every day this super fresh vegetarian or vegan meals. Usually, I am not that much into this style of food, but oh yes - the way of the food was tasty, fresh and creative.

About the yoga - I enjoyed the yoga classes a lot. The practices and the explanations of Shanti were good to follow and also be able to be done in different levels (e.g. beginner, expert). Also there were a lot of books about yoga and aspects of it, free to read. And I got some really good recommendations about books from Shanti, which gave my experience even more fundament and value.

All in all I would highly recommend this place and I think the amount of five days is a good time to get a little sense of this perspective of life and of the vibe of this wonderful place. If I would have the time, I would have definitely stayed for longer. Thanks for this supernice time at bemindfulyoga and hope to see you again!

Las instalaciones son muy limpias y nuevas, todo funcionando bien, con água caliente y calefacción. Los voluntarios son muy simpáticos y hacen una comida increíble. El salón de las clases tiene una vista para la naturaleza donde se puede escuchar el sonido de los pájaros y las olas del mar y Santiago hace con que toda la experiencia de la clase de yoga sea energética y profunda.

"A wonderful experience"

I totally enjoyed my one week retreat. I got a lot of new inspirations about meditation and beeing more connected with myself. It was a journey of love, peace, healing and enjoyment of life.

The house is very close to the wonderful beach (1 Minute walk). Shanti and his volontaries are very lovely. The food was also phantastic.

Thanks a lot. I will come again!


from Spain, January 2022

"Un retiro perfecto"

Me gustó mucho todo, la casa, la ubicación al lado del mar, las personas que en el momento la habitaban.

La galería donde se dan las clases es maravillosa, con grandes ventanales y el suelo radiante para no pasar frío.

La comida vegetariana muy bien elaborada, variada y cocinada con mucho amor por los voluntarios Sebas y Marco.

Las clases de yoga y meditación me han encantado, a pesar de practicar yoga desde hace años he aprendido muchas cosas nuevas.

"Peaceful retreat by the sea"

This yoga & meditation retreat is really great! Lots of practices with Santiago and of free time to enjoy by the sea in a very quiet area, almost desert ! The vegan food was very Good. If you are looking for a peaceful retreat to take time for yourself, detox and focus on the Yoga practices (Yang & Yin), meditation and mindfulness, this is a right place! We were also very lucky with the sun everyday to enjoy brunch in the garden & the beach which is few steps away from the house.

Thanks again to Santiago & the house team for all their efforts !

El sitio es muy tranquilo, agradable y justo al lado de la playa. Incluso lloviendo casi toda mi estancia, hacer yoga y meditar fue muy relajante. La comida y el compartir con gente muy diversa. Me sentí libre y a la vez arropada. Me ha encantado y volveré. Gracias Shanti, por todo, igualmente a los voluntarios. Namaste.

"Una experiencia increíble en todo sentido"

Shanti hace que te sientas cómo en tu casa desde que llegas. A pesar de haber estado sólo 3 días, logré sentirme integrada y cómoda en todo momento. La casa está ubicada cerca a la playa, las habitaciones son súper cómodas, la comida es deliciosa (gracias Camila y Sebastián), las clases de yoga son adecuadas para cualquier nivel, las clases de meditación de la mañana son lo más relajante y los mensajes de Shanti de todos los días antes de empezar las clases son lo mejor!

Fue la primera vez que hacia un retiro y no podría haber encontrado un mejor lugar! Sin duda volveré en verano.

Muchas gracias por todo Shanti!!!!

"Ideal para aprender a meditar"

Fue una experiencia maravillosa y muy transformadora, se nota el amor y la pasión con la que Santiago creó y mantiene este bello lugar.

Cuando llegas allí te sientes como en tu casa, con una energía hermosa, rodeado de gente linda, súper amable y cariñosa.

Las clases son principalmente de hatha yoga y yin yoga, pero Santiago nos sorprendía con instrumentos exóticos y el increíble viaje sonoro, que es una experiencia hermosa, muchas de sus clases estaban acompañadas de mantras.

La otra instructora Maya es una mujer súper dulce,divertida, siempre atenta y pendiente de nuestro bienestar. Sus clases son tranquilas y varias veces matizadas con ideas muy originales y especiales, fuera de lo común.

A mi lo que más me ayudó, es el hecho de estar tan centrado en la meditación, Santiago te da muchas claves y te anima a seguir haciéndolo luego en casa, para así poder obtener los maravillosos beneficios de esta práctica. Yo noto una diferencia en la calidad de mis meditaciones con tan solo 10 días, obtuve mucha paz y tranquilidad.

Otro de los puntos fuertes es la comida vegetariana que es espectacular, estos chicos me hicieron comer cosas que antes ni probaba, pero es imposible resistirse a las delicias culinarias de Camila y Sebastian, todos los días nos sorprendían con platos verdaderamente espectaculares que aunque no tuviera mucha hambre no podía evitar la tentación de probarlos.

La casa queda a 5 minutos de una playa hermosa medió salvaje, donde podíamos pasear todos los dias

"Little family for 1 week"

Dear Shanti, Maya, Camilla, Eric & Sebastian & Pistacchio

thank you for the beautiful week with you all. The dinner and lunch were always amazing. I appreciate that you guys always made such an effort.

I must admit that I really had to sit through the meditations in the beginning. I am always looking for something fun to do and keep my mind buisy. "Escaping the pain" Like Shanti says. As I kind of had to stay during the meditation it gave me the chance to observe my heart a little bit better, also the sad parts. Which I feel was necessary and actually makes me happy.

For people who think about coming: The beach is very close and beautifully lonely. Also you are allowed to speak again once dinner is finished. Thats what scared me a bit before coming.

It felt like a little family for 1 week.

Love & Sunshine for your lifes!

"Amazing treat, Lovely people, great Location!"

Thanks for this lovely Time! The yoga Sessions were mixed with Meditation, the food always fresh cooked and delicious and healthy! The People so kind, I already felt after a few days like family and very welcome. Yoga teacher shanti is very openminded, takes time to explain and for individual questions.

The house itself is quiet, very close to a beautiful beach where you are almost alone. I can warmly recommand it! Thank you so much y hasta proxima vez, Laura

"A great stay"

I loved this retreat. Mostly because, as it advertised, it is a retreat of yoga and meditation as a lifestyle, and it really is. At first I thought the yoga was really slow, but it made me discover how that was exactly the type of yoga and meditation I needed. Slow but long, deep, much more profound than what I usually did. It was really about breathing, connecting to yourself but mostly bringing back this discovery back home and integrate it in your lifestyle. Then, the food. It was delicious and amazing, I loved it all ! It inspired me to cook again more creative meals. The beach next to the house is also definitely a great thing. Santi was so inspirational too. Very warm, peaceful, kind of wise also, in my eyes ! His speeches in the morning, telling us about the theory of yoga and discussins the way our minds work was really interesting. Thanks to the whole team :) Lots of love, hopefully I'll come back and see you again ! Eli

"Expectativas de lo que iba buscando más que superadas"

"Una experiencia muy positiva "

Retiro interesante, el programa de actividades es bastante completo. A primera hora se hace una charla de la que se puede aprender mucho. La comida me gustó mucho y al ser almuerzo y cena temprana, adelgazas sin darte cuenta. La variedad de gente enriqueció mi estancia. Las clases se dan en castellano e inglés, se siguen muy bien. Muy, muy cerca de una playa bonita y tranquila. En mi opinión hay una energía muy especial en la casa.

Tanto Santi como el equipo de voluntarios que atienden a los visitantes nos han tratado con muchísimo cariño. Santi es auténtico, se cree de verdad su misión de ayudar. Imparte unas clases estupendas, explica muy bien las técnicas y estimula reflexiones super interesantes. La comida vegetariana que ofrece es creativa y estimulante. En general, muy contento.

Me gustó todo, desde el entorno natural en el que se encuentra, la playa solitaria a 3 minutos andando, la comida vegetariana riquísima, las clases de yin yoga que sólo conocía de forma superficial y que allí tuve la oportunidad de profundizar y que me encantaron. También Santiago y los voluntarios, son personas muy cercanas y acogedoras. Por otra parte también practiqué mi inglés, que no me vino mal.

Encuentras a gente genial con la que compartes muchos momentos y charlas, si te apetece.

Mi valoración general es muy buena y me llevo un trabajo personal intenso a la vez que sutil, recuperando mi centro.

"The best way to reconect"

Not only the people was extremily nice but the atmosphere was full of love and caring.

The house is in the middle of nowhere with chickens, trees and nature and really close to the beach where we went for walks, enjoy the sunrise and sunset...

I loved the yoga clases as Santi always starts with a reflexion where he opens up to us and makes us feel more confortable and close to him. The meditations where amazing and Santi gifted us with the sound of different instruments and mantras. I was only there for 3 days but this retreat helped me in so many ways that I am sure I will come back soon.

The food is all organic and amazing and there were so many new foods that I hadn´t seen before.

It´s a full experience that I highly recommend!

La experiencia ha sido maravillosa. La casa me encantó, pero sobre su energía: la gente, las conversaciones, las meditaciones, las clases, los paseos, las risas, los baños en el mar.

Es un sitio con luz, con magia, donde el tiempo se dilata, se detiene por momentos.

Gracias a Santi, por sus abrazos, miradas, sonrisas, sus clases....

Gracias a Maya, Cintia, Edu y Martin. Todo es increíble gracias a ellos, a su dedicación y a la energía que transmiten. Gracias por cada momento compartido con cada uno de vosotros.

No cambiaría ni una sola cosa de todo lo vivido allí.

GRACIAS, de corazón.

"Una experiencia enriquecedora"

La bienvenida fue cómo entrar en tu propia casa.

La comida fantástica,siempre en el jardín rodeados de Naturaleza, la cena de la noche se hacía en silencio, la podías deleitar con los 5 sentidos.

La habitación que me tocó disfrutando los amaneceres,limpias,cómodas con incienso y velas para crearte tu propio ambiente si así lo deseabas.

Te dan todas las herramientas para poder meditar, y un cuarto con terraza para poder hacer tus meditaciones si lo deseas en algún momento del día,muy agradable.

La ubicación a 2 minutos de la playa andando, qué más se puede pedir?

Las clases de yoga y meditación impartidas por Edu y Shanti inmejorables.

Las instalaciones muy cómodas para sentirte en tu propia casa,no le falta de nada.

Pero lo que realmente me llevo en mi corazón es la compañía de mis compañeros que fueron a buscar esa paz, ese recogimiento,esos tiempos de silencio siempre rodeados de naturaleza pero sobre todo ,a LOS VOLUNTARIOS,EDU,ELI,MARTÍN, CINTHIA,ellos son los que hacen del retiro que sea especial y maravilloso y os llevaré siempre en mi ❤.

Uno se queda con ganas de más,corto pero muy intenso.

Me llevo silencio en la mente, riqueza en el corazón y serenidad y fuerza en la voluntad.

"Una experiencia inolvidable con compañía de grandes personas"

La casa es muy espaciosa y está situada a 2 minutos a pie de la playa. Estando en Cullera pensé que no iba a haber mucha tranquilidad, pero esa parte de la playa es muy tranquila y hay muy poca gente, ya que la casa se encuentra situada en un pueblecito pequeño entre dos "civilizaciones".

Todo está muy bien preparado, las sesiones de yoga y relajación son intensas, se respira tranquilidad y paz con el canto de los pájaros, la comida vegana está de lujo con mucha variedad y cantidad.

Shanti es un gran profesional y siempre está cuando le necesitas. Además, Irene es otra instructora muy profesional que nos dio un par de clases y nos encantó.

No sólo se respira paz y tranquilidad, sino también muca paciencia, comprensión, humanidad, respeto, empatía y ausencia de prejuicios.

Lo recomiendo a toda aquella persona que busque mirar hacia dentro, conocer a gente que siempre permanecerá en su corazón y adoptar costumbres sanas tanto respecto a la alimentación como al ejercicio físico para toda la vida.

Llevo dentro una experiencia espiritual conmigo que seguiré desarrollando en mi contexto urbano y por supuesto repetiré.

"Difícil poner palabras, tan sólo, RENACER. "

El sitio es paradisíaco y la gente que lo lidera está movida por el amor y la necesidad de dar a las perdonas que van la ayuda necesaria para ser feliz, llenarse de energía para reencontrarse y gustarse, partir de cero. Sentir que de verdad le importas a las personas que te hacen la comida, te preparan la habitación, limpian, te enseñan, que hay autenticidad en lo que se enseña porque se vive desde el corazón. Pero además no sólo hay intención y cariño, sino que hay una profesionalidad en la materia, de una forma multidisciplinar, Shanti sabe lo que enseña!!! Alguien carismático que deja huella, con una entrega brutal y una explosión de energía positiva.

Todo limpio, buen gusto, comida de una calidad Gourmet, adaptado a las necesidades de cada asistente, pero todo ecológico y de verdad y riquísimo!! Todo disponible con una confianza plena, de abrir la nevera, tomar algo de fruta…. Un gusto!! La playa excepcional. Además acoge a mucha gente con una multiculturalidad maravillosa que hacen que pases unos día que marcan tu vida con un antes y un después. Amor, deporte, comida rica y sana, gente con un nivelazo cultural altísimo y con ganas de ayudar, la belleza de la naturaleza, ……qué más se puede pedir??? Lo recomiendo de corazón, volveré!!

Gracias Shanti, gracias a todo el equipo y las personas con las que compartí estos días. Siempre os llevaré en mi corazón!!

"Amazing ❤️"

This place is full of good energy and good people. Everything has been absolutely perfect, I loved the warm welcoming of Santiago and the volunteers, they made me feel at home from the very first minute. The house is cozy, clean, and well equipped with everything, just 2 minutes walk from a beautiful beach. The food is AMAZING, I enjoyed every single meal, all is vegan/vegetarian, we always had many options and big big portions. Super tasty! Also, fruit and healthy snacks are freely available in the kitchen at every moment of the day. Yoga practice and meditation are perfect for both advanced and beginners yogi, and I experienced a deep relaxation and joy from the inside.

I couldn't be more happy with this retreat, I truly recommend it to anyone!

Les mantras, les bains sonores, le yin yoga font parties des avantages de cette retraite.

La nourriture est excellente.

"Experiencia revitalizante"

Ha sido una semana en la que cargué mis pilas al 100%. La casa es muy agradable y se sitúa en un lugar propicio para desconectar y relajarte. Desconecté del mundo para volver a conectar con otra energía.

Las clases están muy bien pensadas y organizadas. Fui con pocos conocimientos sobre el Yoga y la Meditación y las clases se me hicieron muy llevaderas. Santiago, propietario y profesor de todas las actividades, es un gran profesional, lleva las clases con entusiasmo y ganas y lo transmite. Comenzar las clases viendo salir el sol no tiene precio.

La comida exquisita. Súper saludable y llena de nutrientes. La cocinan con mucho cariño y mimo y se nota. Tiene un sabor... ¡Yo tomé nota de muchas de las recetas!

Tanto el personal de la casa como Santiago te hacen sentir como en casa, acogida y querida. También las personas con las que coincidí fueron encantadoras, abiertas y con conversaciones muy interesantes.

¡Espero volver!

The yoga classes were amazing. I loved the combination between yoga and meditation. The food was absolutely over the moon: consistent yet super healthy food, variety of choices everyday, creativity of the meals and quality of ingredients.

The people were the nicest and most caring: loved the energy and tips from Santi, loved the yoga courses of Jeannette and her caring personality and adored the food of Bani and Juan.

The location : room with sea view, just a couple of steps from the beach and with great surroundings for afternoon walks.

"Mi bautismo del Yoga"

Es mi primera vez que me acerco a esta experiencia y el haber conocido a Santiago ha sido increíble. Es una persona que transmite una energía inexplicable. Me guió en los primeros pasos. Yo quizás sea el ser más poco flexible que existe, pero poco a poco, siguiendo las enseñanzas del maestro logré vencer esa rigidez y gracias a sus clases de meditación mi espíritu se abrió a esa nueva experiencia que va mas allá de la materia.

Sin pócimas mágicas, sin charlatanería, Shanti logró que viera en la cultura del yoga y la meditación otra forma de ver las cosas. Gracias Shanti por tu paciencia, tu amabilidad, tu suave voz y por todo lo que me enseñaste.

Aunque todos estamos pasando por momentos difíciles, estoy convencido que tu proyecto triunfará. Desde aquí animo a las personas que tienen Poder de influencia en los demás que cuando tenga un ratito, hagan un paro y se pasen por tu casa. Quizás después las decisiones que tomen en la vida ayudaran a que este mundo sea un poquito mejor.

Un fuerte abrazo.

"Coming home into yourself"

This retreat was the best thing that I could have chosen to do in these coronatimes. Santiago really helped me to quiet down, smile and come home into myself. To become aware of the both mental and physical blockages in my body, and embrace myself completely. The teacher and volunteers at this retreat are such gentle souls, always open to talk about anything and make you feel very welcome. The yogaclasses and meditations were very various, Santi adjusted them perfectly to everybody's level and needs. Don't fear to come if you are beginner level. Oh and don't get me started about the amazing location and delightful vegan food. I wish I could have stayed a little longer. Also very clean and corona-proof since the shala has sliding windows. This retreat inspired me to include this practice more into my daily life, as i got the chance of experiencing the tranquility of living in this very moment.

"Another amazing yogaretreat"

Santiago and the volunteers were amazing, i felt so much warmth. The yoga was very good, adapted to everyones needs, and the meditation was also great. I needed a little push to start again, and there we go. The food was another amazing thing, they were always so creative, so many tastes. I slept in a room were you could fall a sleep with the noise of the sea! Loved it. I went back home, became again a bit closer to becoming the best version of myself thanks to them.

"Un retiro increíble "

Estuve por 7 días en el retiro de Santi y Verónica y fue una de las experiencias más bonitas de mi vida. Fue también mi primer retiro así q no sabía lo q esperar. Las clases de yoga fueron muy buenas, muy bien guiadas por Santi, Christina o Julia. Las prácticas de meditación fueron increíbles. Las comidas (un brunch y una cena) estuvieron excelentes, yo me hacia temprano un pequeño desayuno que es opcional. Para cualquier problema o pregunta todos estaban muy felices de ayudar. Las tardes normalmente las ocupaba caminando por la playa.

Me encanto esta experiencia y se la recomiendo a todas las personas q quieran salir de la rutina y encontrar balance en una atmósfera encantadora.

Deborah Greenwood

Santiago and Veronica were very welcoming, caring hosts. The location was lovely and quiet. The atmosphere was calm and peaceful. The other guests who came and went throughout my stay were warm and friendly, making meal time discussions fun and varied. The food was seasonal and delicious. The classes of meditation and yoga were everything I could have asked for. As a Yoga novice I was continually reassured not to push my body too far, help was given when needed and the instruction was clear. The variety of yoga and meditation offered was great. I could very happily stayed much longer than the 6 nights I was there for and I very much look forward to returning.

"La belleza de la vida esta en lo sencillo."

La casa está muy bien situada para la calma, a 3 min a pie de una playa maravillosa, con unos amaneceres increibles.... Santi y Veronica son dos personas extraordinarias, que siempre están disponibles para ayudarte, guiarte... Kata prepara todas las comidas con tanto amor que te sientes en comunión también con la comida. :-)

La jornada de silencio y desconexión con el "exterior" del 31 de diciembre al 1 de enero fué mágico! Las clases matinales tanto para principinates como para avanzados son dadas con maestría, sabiduría, reflexiones... y la clase de Yin Yoga la tarde-noche te prepara para una conexión y relajación extraordinaria antes de ir a dormir :-). Love them!

Han sido unos días de completa reconexión, de tomas de conciencia, de paz :-). GRACIAS de todo corazón! Namaste

"Fijn retreat, kleinschalig en daardoor warm en betrokken"

Deskundige en persoonlijke begeleiding, waarbij de motivatie steeds is de deelnemer verder te helpen binnen eigen mogelijkheden.

Prima prijs/kwaliteit verhouding! De lessen duren hier niet 1 uurtje maar soms wel 2 uur. Daarnaast grote variatie in aanbod, bijv ook Qigong les wat ik een aangename verrassing vond. Fijne mooie kamer met goed bed.

Echt heel gezond en lekker eten en veel gezelligheid.

Ana Pilar Celada Gil

from Spain, January 2020

Me encontré muy a gusto desde el primer momento tanto en las prácticas de yoga como compartiendo mesa u otros momentos con los habitantes de la casa.

Te sientes muy libre para participar o no en las actividades grupales, para moverte por la casa, coger las bicis, libros, etc.

Tanto los baños como las habitaciones están impolutos. Colchón y almohadas muy cómodos.

La comida es muy variada y todo me estuvo rico.

Vero y Santi son muuuy bonicos, buenos profesionales, graciosos y se preocupan porque estemos bien.

Lo único triste fue ver las consecuencias de la borrasca Gloria. Los estragos que ha causado en la playa y en las zonas cercanas a la costa :(

"All that you need and even more!"

Very friendly and warm atmosphere, Shanti and Veronica are the best hosts and instructors. The please is really clean, and the food was delicious every day. They have a schedule for the classes, but can be pretty flexible, depending of the preferences of the group. You have enough personal time and can do as many or as little classes as you want. Felt great trough the whole week, and it was really hard to leave as well. Will miss you folks!

"Authentic yoga and meditation in a peaceful retreat."

From the moment I arrived, Veronica and Santiago made me feel at home and the relaxation began. During the 7 days of my stay I enjoyed the different yoga and Tai Chi experiences on offer, meditation was special and the vibe was always kind and relaxed. The food was plentiful and delicious, and the communal dining atmosphere was warm, friendly and an opportunity to mix with the other retreat participants. The whole experience was a joy, exactly what I needed and I would repeat it in a heartbeat. The rooms are very clean, simple and comfortable... sometimes there was pressure on using the first floor bathroom but other facilities are available downstairs so this was not a problem. The positivity and genuine kindness of everyone at the retreat was infectious and contributed to a very special experience. The perfect place to take it down a notch and reflect. Thanks to everyone who participated and especially to Veronica and Santiago...xx

The team is extremely helpful and nice and open-hearted. It felt like being home. The place is beautiful between the sea and sand dunes and the mountains. There are bicycles available and it is definitely worth it to cruise around. I would definitely book again with Santiago and Verónica. Thank you so much for everything and the extraordinary energy you were transmitting. It was amazing. Thank you!

"Zeer fijne relaxe retraite"

Ik heb ontzettend genoten van een week daar zijn. Shanti en Veronica waren heel liefdevol, die mij heel erg thuis lieten voelen in hun retraite. Elke dag veel yoga, op meerdere niveaus, waar je allemaal aan mee mag doen. Meerdere meditatiesoorten geleerd. En zelfs kennisgemaakt met Qi gong, waar ik ontzettend enthousiast over ben. Daarnaast wordt er heel veel aandacht besteed aan mindfullness, alles wordt in rust gedaan, ook het eten. En het eten was fantastisch? Elke dag weer iets anders en alles veganistische. Ook is de plek prachtig gelegen, uitzicht op de zee met strand en met de fiets ben je zo in de bergen.

"An honest review"

I'm not quite sure how to express the gratitude I have for Santiago and Veronica. They made me feel at home right away and the amount of love, care, and attention they put into this experience is immeasurable. I must say I was hesitant at first - not sure if this was the right place for me, but if you keep an open mind and especially an OPEN HEART only good things will come! Thank you!

PS. Big thanks to Kata (the chef) for the amazing introduction into vegan food!

"Lovely yoga and meditation retreat. Exactly what I needed"

Santiago is a great instructor, and he puts a lot of love in what he does.

I came back home regenerated, relaxed and detoxed, willing to continue practicing yoga, and to go back in any other moment.

The vegan food is outstanding. They have one of the best vegan chefs I ever met.

"Magical place"

I have spent 7 days at Be Mindful yoga retreat and did not want to leave. The experience was nothing but positive. The calm and peace you feel after you practice yoga and meditation with Santiago is enormous. Santiago, Veronica and Chef Kata and volunteer Amy created an incredible space where one can come back home to their inner peace. I loved the food, all plant based and created with love. We have had all meals together, outside in the sun where possible, which was a huge bonus. You settle into a life of a yogi with ease, the day has a plan but you can decide not to take a class. The beach is beautiful and air fresh, the area is so quiet, it helps with creating the calmness we crave. You learn from Santi, Veronica and Kata and you laugh together. I really enjoyed trying different style of yoga and meditation, which enriched my practice. I did not want to leave and I am already planning to return next year. Thank you for this amazing week.

"Magical Place"

I spent the past nine days with Santi and Veronica and it was above all my expectations. The place that Santi provides is not just a yoga retreat it is so much more - a home filled with love, passion and freedom. The yoga classes are amazing and I also loved the meditations. Katha cooks the best meals and I could have stayed forever. I will be forever grateful for this magical experience!

"Wundervolles Ambiente mit ausbaufähigem Yogaunterricht"

Das Haus ist sehr schön und sehr sauber. Alles ist noch relativ neu. Es sind 3 Minuten zu Fuß zum Strand (wenn auch kein Meerblick ;-)). Das Setting ist sehr familiär und gemütlich, die gemeinsamen Mahlzeiten werden vegan und liebevoll zubereitet. Sowohl Lebensmittel als auch sonstige Produkte im Haus sind organic und hochwertig. Die dort volunteerende Yogalehrerin macht ihren Job sehr gut.

"Nourishing little oasis"

Wonderfully nutritious, beautifully cooked food - Locally sourced and seasonal ingredients- cooked with so much love by the lovely Cata.

Santi and Veronica are incredibly attentive and I immediately felt comfortable in their home. They made me feel like nothing was too much trouble.

Amy gave excellent, clear and creative classes yoga. I really appreciated the one to one vinyasa class that focused on my back issues.

I loved the flexibility of this retreat- work cancelled on the Wednesday of last week, I booked it on the Thursday and arrived on Saturday - and Santi and Veronica enabled this process with ease.

Highlights were the beautiful, peaceful location, and the meals for the food and the fun relaxed atmosphere around the dinner table.

I also loved that there was a strong focus on meditation which other retreats I’ve attended in the past haven’t provided.

The room was clean and lovely in its simplicity and I really appreciated the sea view.

The yoga and meditation classes were also responsive to our needs as well as being inspired by conversations over the dinner table. This ability to respond to what was in space was really wonderful- especially an impromptu Chi Gung class led by Veronica. Stepping onto the balcony halfway through the class to watch the full moon rise over the sea I will never forget.

Back home and feeling as refreshed and inspired as I’d hoped. Thank you x

Vanessa Blackburn

"Lovely, peaceful, relaxing yoga retreat near the beach!"

Great to have the flexibility to arrive and leave when you want. This also means that you are constantly meeting other new guests.

The day was action packed (I liked that!) - two yoga and a meditation session in the morning and another yoga session early evening. That said, it is up to you what you chose to attend and there is no pressure at all.

The beach is 3 minutes walk away and you can hear the sound of the waves during the early evening yoga session on the terrace, which is really nice!

The food was delicious - so healthy and tasty too! Great to be able to help yourself to nuts and dried fruit all day as you wanted :)

They also have bikes that you can use and a paddle board so I was able to keep active (as I ate a lot!).


from Netherlands, November 2019

"A disappointment and I left after a few days"

I loved the house, a quiet place, very close to the beach; really great if you need to rest! Also the food was amazing, thanks to a cook who loved to prepare food and make it look gorgeous as well as taste delicious. You could feel the love she has for the food.

Rooms are simple but for me perfect and comforting.

"Feel the Love"

I’d have to say, at this retreat I really felt the love and care of all the staff. Amazing food, great yoga and meditation sessions and lovely surroundings. Just what I needed to get away from the cold concrete jungle that is London.

I’d recommend this retreat to anyone looking for amazing food and great yoga...and 3 mins from the beach!

"Unos días en armonía y tranquilidad"

Ha sido una experiencia magnífica, he desconectado del ajetreo diario, con unos días muy tranquilos en la casa de campo y cerca del mar, y sobre todo rodeada de personas estupendas, desde Santi, Kata ( cocinando estupendos y suculentos platos, tanto en el desayuno como en la comida y en la cena, [muchas gracias, Kata]), hasta Mónica, etc . En la mesa estábamos como en familia, comiendo al aire libre. Y luego las clases de yoga, pranayama, etc. casi personalizadas, ya que éramos pocos en esos días, por suerte.

La paz que se respira en el lugar es ideal para quienes quieren estar alejados de cualquier contacto que no sea Meditar, descansar, ir a la playa y hacer yoga. todos sin excepción son personas amables, que disfrutan de las cosas simples de la vida, y con las que se puede disfrutar de una conversación amena a la hora de la cena o a cualquier hora del día, las comidas fueron muy saludables, abundantes y preparadas por una experta con una sazón increible. gracias a todos. un abrazo!

The yoga was amazing - maybe the best I have ever done. It was taught with such care and I felt all my worries melt away. The beach is so close and you can litterally hear the waves from bed, its so peaceful! The host’s were very welcoming and the food was exceptional! Amazing amazing healthy food! Very intimate and personal experience. The rooms were small and basic but thats fine as you don’t spend anytime in your room anyway! Everyone I met also staying at the retreat was so lovely.

"Perfect Retreat/Holiday!"

I loved everything about this holiday/retreat: Santiago and Veronica were very friendly, loving hosts that made me feel at home instantly. The house and rooms are very cozy. The vegan food by chef Kata is absolutely amazing! The yoga, meditation, the silent time for me (at the very close beach) as well as the fun and friendly conversations with the other participants were the perfect mix for relaxing, fun and winding down. Already after 2 days I felt recharged like after a week of vacation, so I felt really lucky to stay for another 5 :-) I hope I will be back in this amazing place!

Viktor Thorisson

from Iceland, October 2019

"Great experience"

As soon as you arrive Shanti and Veronica make an effort to make you feel at home but also to make space for you do feel free.

The food was amazing, I really liked how the yoga was practiced, with hatha in the morning and yin in the afternoon, I also liked a lot the variety of meditation experiences, such as with tibetian singing bawls and many others. As well as trying a bit of qui kong.

This is a great place to come to if you just want to take it easy, do yoga and mediate.

All the staff where just great really, very loving, kind and true was my feeling.

I might return.

Lara Weijts

"Wonderful week"

Santi and Vero make you feel at home from the start. You get all the space you need and everything is possible. For me the location was good, 3 min walk to the beach and an oasis of silence except for the sea, birds and their own chickens. that's all I needed this week. If you would want to visit other town or hike I would suggest you'd rent a car. All food is plant based and nothing gets wasted. Room was really nice and clean. The yoga is good, there is enough variety and you get the chance to deepen your practice.

I would come back!

If i have to name a 'negative' thing it would be that they could do more with the garden. Grow more plants and maybe have another sitting area. But can't think of anything else.

Santi and Véronica are great hosts, they are the most welcoming, accepting and open-hearted people you could ever wish for. I’m so glad and grateful for these 6 days and I have left with a full heart, lovely memories of powerful meditation, profound moments, new found outlook on what yoga really is. I cannot thank Véronica and Santi enough, and I recommend them highly if you’re looking for a place to open your mind and heart. I feel I have recharged my soul and met great like minded beautiful people. Loved all meals, it was such a treat for me to relish lovingly cooked vegan meals and made me realise the importance of mindful eating. Miss you already ;))) lots of Love, Laura 💟

"A wonderful and loving experience"

Santi and Véronica provide such a wonderful and loving atmosphere, where you don't have to be or do anything, you can just be the way you are in the moment :) The yoga lessons were amazing, I did not have much yoga experience and I could follow all the classes because the teachers would offer different variations on a pose depending on your experience. The classes were a really nice mixture of different kinds of yoga styles, slow and more intense movement. I particulary loved the evening practice, which was mostly yin yoga. Also the meditations were so lovely and helpes you become aware of your constant thinking and judging (which can sometimes be a little confronting, but so valuable). The food was absolutely amazing, always clean and fresh and prepared with so much love which you could taste. The rooms were really nice, nice beds, nice bathroom. I also really loved the indoor yoga space. I left this place with a sense of wonder about my life and the way I do things and I feel like this week was a beginning of coming more in touch with my heart. I am really grateful for Santi, Véronica, Kata and the volunteers and other people in the group for creating this space of love and acceptance.

La multiculturalidad y procedencia de las personas que hacíamos la estancia ha hecho de la estancia un retiro excepcional. La playa tan cerquita.. te permite disfrutar del mar, el sol, y la brisa marina en cualquier momento. Muchas gracias Santi, Vero!!!! Ha sido una elección muy acertada.

"Wonderful week of yoga, mindfulness and good food :)"

I wanted to recharge my batteries, escape my daily routine, do some yoga and connect with myself. That was the perfect place for me.

The center is located in the countryside, perfect for silence and disconnection. The beach is just next to the center, ideal to relax during free time.

I really enjoyed the yoga classes, also the yin yoga, which I have never done before. I also liked the meditation sessions. I made such nice mindfulness experiences during the retreat.

The hosts were so lovely and helpful and the vegan food was sooo delicious.

After the week I felt so refreshed and relaxed. I really enjoyed my time there. Thank you so much Santi, Veronica and Kata :)

Me ha encantado pasar unos días con Santi y su equipo! Habia gran cantidad de clases en las q profundizamos en la respiracion que de verdad lograron calmarme y alcanzar un balance. La casa esta a 3 minutos de la playa así que un baño es la opcion perfecta para los ratos libres. La comida estaba espectacular! Gracias a ella me noto un organismo mas limpio y saludable! Ademas super comodo para llegar en tren desde Madrid, eso sí! Lo mejor es reservar un taxi de la estacion a la casa el dia anterior porque no hay muchos taxis en cullera!

"A week full of happiness"

Coming to spend a week practicing yoga close to the beach without distractions I was overwhelmed of this beautiful calm place and the cheerful people there. The dynamic yoga practice in the mornings and yin yoga in the evenings was just a perfect combination. The house was cozy and felt like home. Santiago and Veronica are amazing hosts and Katas food is mindful made with love. I spent this week with beautiful souls and would love to come back one day! Thank you Santiago, Veronica and Kata for making this experience possible!

I wish you all the best for this project!

"Ruhe + Regeneration für Körper, Geist + Seele direkt am Meer"

Das Haus liegt wenige Minuten vom Strand etwas ausserhalb der nächsten Stadt und ist ein idealer Rückzugsort, um Abstand zum hektischen urbanen Alltag zu bekommen. Santiago hat eine grosse Lebenserfahrung und ist ein geduldiger Yogalehrer, der es versteht, auf die Bedürfnisse und Fähigkeiten seiner Schüler einzugehen, Einblick in verschiedene Meditationstechniken und viele Anregungen für 'Aufmerksamkeit' - 'Mindfulness' in vielen Lebensbereichen zu geben. Das Team von Santiago kümmert sich rührend um ihre Gäste und das ausschliesslich vegane Essen wird liebevoll zubereitet. Die Atmosphäre ist sehr entspannt und ruhig und man braucht sich um nichts Sorgen zu machen.

Das Haus hat eine familiäre Atmosphäre, ist einfach und zweckmässig eingerichtet und bietet Platz für eine übersichtliche Anzahl von Gästen.

Wenn man sich einmal richtig zurückziehen und regenerieren möchte, dann ist das ein Idealer Ort. Ideal war für mich auch, dass ich von meinem Zimmer das Meeresrauschen hören und ich in nur 5 Minuten zum Strand gehen konnte, der - es war Juni - meistens menschenleer war. Ich habe mich in der Woche bei BeMindfulYoga unglaublich gut erholt, Körper, Geit und Seele gestärkt und sehr nette Menschen kennen gelernt.

"Muy bueno "

Para ser mi primer retiro no sabía muy bien lo que me iba a encontrar, pero Santi y Verónica te lo hacen todo tan fácil q sin apenas darte cuenta parece q estás en tu casa. Me han encantado las clases, la comida (kata es increíble cocinando) y el ambiente en general! Ellos son muy accesibles y han estado dispuestos a ayudarme en todo lo que han podido. Volvería sin dudarlo :)

"A wonderful, wholesome and loving experience "

I went there to disconnect, recharge and find myself re-centered again, which is exactly what happened after spending a week there. The duration of the retreat and the program`were perfectly designed to help you truly disconnect and come out of there rebooted and energised for your daily life. The location is beautiful - raw nature of Spain combined with the beach just a few meters away. The house is also gorgeous, spacious, and has a cosy feeling to it with very comfortable rooms. Both the hosts/instructors and the people present during my time were fantastic to spend time with - the meals are spent together which really allows you to connect and spend time in a "family/community" way of living. There is also a perfect balance between individual moments and collective ones. In terms of yoga, the classes had a slower rhythm than what I am used to but the teachings provided by Santiago are very powerful and precious to take back with you. Special mention to the cook and the masseuse, both of whom were extraordinary in their profession and as individuals. As the headline says, it is not a luxurious retreat but rather a yogi way of living for a week... and this is exactly what it felt like. I come back feeling like I have learned a lot, experienced a very beneficial time and grateful for how comfortable I got to feel there.

Thank you to the whole team xxx

"10 days of Yoga, Meditation and Beach Heaven"

I stayed for 10 days and I loved everything! The Food was extraordinary and I miss it already. I loved the 3.5 hrs of Yoga and Meditation in the morning and the 1.5 hrs of Yin Yoga and Meditation in the evening. Santi has a special style of teaching which I really enjoyed. I spent most of the free time at the beach which is literally around the corner,,next time I will come without a rental car and I will come back for sure! Thanks Santi, Veronica and Kata for everything!

"yoga in zeer aangename sfeer"

Ik had veel baat bij deze yoga, omdat ik na lange tijd er niets meer aan gedaan te hebben, wel wat serieuze stretching kon gebruiken. Heerlijk om dat buiten op het balkon te doen! En na afloop lekker naar het strand of lezen op een ligstoel met uitzicht op de bergen. De groep is klein, Santi en Verónica zeer hartelijk en betrokken, evenals kok Kata die ons drie keer per dag trakteerde op een gezonde én met zorg en smaakvol bereide maaltijd. Niet geschikt voor mensen die naast de yogalessen entertainment verwachten. Ik voelde me klaar voor een nieuw begin!

"Good place to switch off"

The food, the food, the food. This was by far the best vegetarian experience. Kata's food was amazing and she's been our inspiration ever since we came back to our country.

People were nice and helpful. Caring for our food preferences, injuries (if any), asking for time of arrival, etc., even printed out our boarding cards. We had a lot of luck with the weather as well so we could benefit from the beach which was like 3 min by foot. Being able to take rest, think, make some decisions for your life is a good thing. If you are looking exactly for that, I think this place could do it for you!

"Great yoga sessions"

I really enjoyed the yoga sessions twice a day. Santiago is a very knowledgeable yoga teacher

Kathleen Quirke

"Lovely break"

Santiago and Veronica were lovely, welcoming hosts. Santiago was great instructor who adapted elements of the practice for me. The sessions were relaxing but pushed us sufficiently to improve and expand our practice after we leave.

The space was very clean and light, near a quiet beach - only a few minutes walk. If you're looking for quiet focused experience without any outside distractions - it's amazing. Just what we wanted - huge thank you to both for the experience. special mention to Katrine who created beautiful vegan dishes everyday which were a joy to see and enjoy.

We enjoyed nice cycle to nearby Cullera - around 45 mins each way if you'd like to explore small town.

This was my first retreat so I arrived with no expectations, just an intention to learn, let go of things that no longer serve me, and be present. What I experienced felt, to me, to be profound. The gentle wisdom of Santi and Veronika, the regular flow of guests arriving and leaving, the yoga practice which took me to much higher levels, the wonderful food prepared with such love and warmth by Kata, the sea, the balance of doing and being...all of it was wonderful. I left feeling positively changed.

"Weekend yoga and mindfulness retreat "

It’s an oasis of peace and wellbeing. It all felt so natural and nice. I loved everything about this experience, but most importantly the people. Santiago is an amazing host and yoga teacher. When I met him immediately thought no matter where you come from, how tough life was on you so far, you can always choose to be happy, to be the better version of yourself. I found Santiago’s own journey to this new way of living very inspiring. He also managed to attract amazing people like Veronica and Katha.. honestly, katha’s vegan cuisine was not only super healthy but also really delicious.. what an amazing choice of ingredients combined with Katha’s culinary talent and good vibe which made every meal an experience...I will be back soon.. thank you Santiago, Veronica and Katha!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️🙏🙏🙏🙏

"Wonderful and relaxed 5 days"

My 4 night stay at mindfulyoga was amazing. The yoga classes were great. Santiago is a great teacher and a wonderful soul. He and his girlfriend Veronica were always friendly and very helpful. The house is cosy and I felt like home. It's 15 min away from Cullera and very close to the beach. The (organic, mostly plant-based) food was just amazing. Big thanks to Kata. Would always come back!

Joelle Hernandez

"The perfect break to get back in touch with yourself "

This retreat offered more than I expected. Santiago is a wonderful person with a beautiful soul. He shared with us is daily yoga practices, his home, his time, his life experience and his wisdom.

Although I have been practising yoga for many years, I had never encountered yin yoga. Yin yoga being a slow pace practice it allowed me to reconnect with myself and experience mediation within the practise. Every session is different using different asanas and mantras.

It is just the perfect balance with opportunities to sing too, which was definitely a plus for me as I like singing!

The souroudings are great if you want to escape the noise, the excess of light and the city life. It’s car free and plane free noise, dark at night and a beach is just a stroll distance from the house.

The food is one of the highlights of the retreat. Kata, the chef, is just so creative in her cooking. You are surved vegetarian dishes, vegan dishes and she can also provide gluten free dishes. It is all deliciously tasty. I can’t wait for Kata to publish her recipe book.

To complete my stay I had a massage from Miguel which I highly recommend too. It’s energetic and therapeutic.

In a nutshell, this is the perfect break if you want to disconnect from your day to day life and reconnect with yourself. The whole team, Santiago, Veronica, Kata and Miguel will make you feel at home and will make you want to go back for more.

Santi y Vero estaban anfitriones grandes y impresionantes. Después de un día ya me sentí en mi casa. Estaba fantástico entrar en la vida de ellos y sentir todo el amor y la pasión que tienen. El horario me gustaba mucho. Despertar con la salida del sol meditando, el Hata yoga y el desayuno eran perfecto pare empezar el día. Toda la comida the Catha (gracias a ti) estaba deliciosa! Después en el tiempo libre paseando en la playa, tumbar me en el sol, leer un libro o hacer nada era exactamente que he necesitado. La casa esta localizada perfectamente en el campo así no hay de distracciónes de simplemente ser. La Yin clase de la tarde era una nueva experiencia para mi y también me ha gustado mucho. Santi hace meditation, pranayama y las asanas de yoga practicas diferentes, depende al día y depende al nivel da la gente. Me encantaba trabajar en mi mente, cuerpo y alma en el mismo tiempo. Porque esto es yoga. Gracias a vosotros para compartir nuestra vida y mucho mas conmigo. Hasta la próxima. Namaste

"A peaceful, thoughtful week."

I enjoyed the quiet, sunshine and space. A good first experience of yoga in a group practice and thoroughly enjoyed the meditation/mindfulness. The opportunity of a massage was a welcome extra, the use of bicycles for an explore, the proximity of the beach for a walk, relaxing and swimming plus good company all made it a very relaxing week from home.

"Absolute great stay"

Thank you so much for the absolutely great stay! It was an amazing experience and I loved every second of it. You are a great person and teacher. I liked the fact that the house was so remote and close to the say and the overall atmosphere in the house was nice and peaceful. The lessons were perfect and the food too :)

Susan Friend

from France, March 2019

"Thoroughly enjoyable stay - highly recommended"

Santi's house is located right next to the beach, and in March the area was deserted. This was a real retreat (and a treat) for me with no shops, no cafés (although we did find one!) and absolutely nothing to do apart from turning inward. Total disconnection from the distractions of daily life. Santi has created a true haven where like minded people can meet and relax. I was so fortunate that the people staying there at the same time as me were beautiful souls and we all connected so easily and happily. Santi's classes are always different, everything flows naturally for him and he is calm, helpful and positive. I very much enjoyed practising with him. Kata, the cook, is just as gifted with the food which was excellent. She too is a beautiful, caring soul, as is Veronica. Thank you all for helping me rebalance and sending me back to Paris feeling more stable and ready to cope again. Love to you all. Namaste.

"Magical and wonderful retreat"

On arriving at the retreat, I was instantly greeted by wonderful and loving people. I experienced some of the most amazing things whilst there and got to share these things with an incredible bunch of people.

The food was AMAZING! The yoga was beautiful and I would go back in a flash. Although the yoga wasn't what I normally do at home, I absolutely loved it. It was fun and mind-expanding. We did things that I could only dream of doing, like a late night singing bowl sound bath and dancing in harmony together.

The house is right by the beach (like literally less than 5 minutes walk) so waking up to walk down to the beach and watch the sunrise was brilliant. I felt like I joined one big happy family, all growing and sharing together.

I can not emphasise how wonderful my time spent at the retreat was. <3

"Great place to fully unplug"

Location and access from Valencia airport are perfect. Yoga and mediation classes are really enjoyable and the whole setting with use of singing bowls and encens helps a lot to get into the practice. A big thank you to Miguel, the cook, who rendered my stay into a marvelous culinary experience discovering plenty of tasty vegetarian recipes. Another plus: the beach is only 3 mns away - walking distance - from the place, where you can have long walks along a stretch of sandy beach and enjoy this time to further meditate. 2 last points to be added: the rooms and facilitaties are really clean and I had the chance to meet absolutely amazing people to share this experience. Again, thank you to Santiago and Miguel!

"Connecting to my heart"

Cullera retreat is a wonderful setting to relax and reconnect with myself. I loved the kindness of the instructors and I really felt that the house was my home and I could do whatever I liked/needed in order to make myself comfortable. There was lots of opportunity to spend spare time well, such as going to the beach which is only 3mins walk, or borrowing their bikes to visit the local town or explore the orange fields in the surrounding area. The food was AMAZING. We ate all our meals outside in the sunshine. The atmosphere was enhanced by the chef playing Spanish guitar in his spare time. I really liked that the focus of the retreat was not only yoga, but also meditation, pranayama, chanting and a little dance even. Santi is very connected to his heart and has wonderful ways of helping others connect to theirs.

Amanda Symonds

from Great Britain, January 2019

"Spiritual home with a loving rhythm"

I loved that there was a consistent daily routine. Join meditation between 6.25-7.25, then yoga 7.30-10.30, then breakfast in the sun outside followed by free time, then a lunch at 2.30/3pm outside, more free time and then yin yoga 6-7.30pm followed by dinner at roughly 8.45pm.

The yoga is from the heart. Connected and slower than classes people may experience in the big cities. It’s more intuitive. Santiago is a playful and loving teacher. He encouraged me to connect to my own heart in my practice and allowed me to lead sections of some classes since I recently qualified as a yoga teacher.

All the food is organic and freshly prepared in beautiful ways.

The beach is 5 mins walk away and you can walk for miles.

I did a bike ride with some guests to the castle in Cullera one day, and an awesome hike to the mountains another day.

The dynamic of the house is constantly changing as guests come and go. When I first arrived there were 7/8 guests and at the end of my trip there were 4 of us. A mixture of British, Dutch and Spanish during my stay. Sometime the conversation is in Spanish but often in English. At the beginning of my stay the vibe was ashram/communal living and towards the end of my stay the vibe was more like a holiday.

The massage guy is very good.

The best thing about the place is that you are made to feel so at home and very loved. It’s a nurturing place where sweet bonds are formed.

Marion Baumelou

"A great and relaxing stay"

Shanti is a wonderful teacher and a very nice person who will do his best to make your retreat unforgettable. Also, the food is delicious and very generous. The place is quiet and quite far from the city (but very close to the beach) so if you look for a peaceful environment, this is the best place to go. Many many thanks <3

"Excellent - this provided time out to relax and be "

The yoga experience was wonderful.. I have experienced hatha but not yin before which is about slower, more meditative postures.. Santi is an excellent yoga teacher and keeps an eye on those that are less experienced. He is authentic in his approach, very interesting and also very helpful.

"Wonderful experience "

I had 8 days in a private room. The bed was comfortable and I had an ocean view. The yoga was adjusted to the levels of the participants so you could take it easy or a little more difficult depending on your level. The food was mostly vegan with some vegetarian also. All fresh and prepared with love. Santi was an amazing teacher of yoga, meditation and life. The location right next to the beach was outstanding. I enjoyed the winter sun. I also had a tai chi lesson with Santi’s girlfriend Veronica that was wonderful. They are both very good teachers with clear instructions and adjusting the lesson to your needs along the way. Highly recommended!

"Be Mindful yoga review"

Santiago and his team Rebecca and Cristina were very welcoming and ready to help with anything. I found the atmosphere in the house really positive, the food was amazing, everyday there was something different and I was never hungry. Having the bikes to explore the area was a great idea and the beach is almost private and only a couple of minutes away. Santiago tailors the yoga classes to what everyone is comfortable with and they are always varied and interesting too. Oh and the massage by Miguel was really good too

Mark Hodgson

"Rejuvenation "

Santiago was a friendly and extremely helpful host and also a great teacher. Heavy rainfall meant that the domestic water supply was cut off. Santi did not allow this to be a problem and even arranged shower facilities at another apartment for us.

His teaching style is very encouraging and I grew in confidence over the 3 days I was there lessons were varied and interesting and Santi explained the theory and practice with great enthusiasm and knowledge

This was a fabulous trip

Esther Poveda

from Great Britain, November 2018

De forma natural me senti acogida nada mas llegar como si todo y yo misma, fuera parte de aquel lugar. Fueron solo dos dias y medio en los que en todo momento me senti parte de la bonita familia que entre Santi, Rebeca y Cristina estan formando.

La frescura, creatividad y capacidad de compartir y sonreir de estas chicas, no tiene limite, al igual que los conocimientos, calma y compromiso de Santi hacia las personas y la naturaleza.

Fue muy comodo compartir parte de mi con el estupendo grupo de mujeres con los que tuve el placer de convivir estos poquitos dias.

Aprender a darnos las gracias es una de las cosas que muy pocas veces nos enseñan , al igual que el hecho de no juzgar nuestro propio yo. Gracias por vuestras enseñanzas.

Sin duda lo recomiendo.


from Germany, November 2018

This retraet was the first I did and I was totally suprised. Apart from the lessons and the food the place itself is incredible. I heard the sea during the night and I saw spectacular sunrises. The whole stay really calmed me down and I left with a profund inner feeling of having get back to myself. Thank you!

"Perfect retreat"

The house is great, so beautiful and very close (3 min walk) to the beach. The rooms have the basic necessities and the bathrooms are very clean! I loved the indoor yoga space, although we mostly did the classes outside (which was also great). Food was amazing every day! Most importantly though, the overall vibe was just lovely. Very open, welcoming and warm people. I left feeling even happier than I came in and very very well rested! Thank you!!

"Wonderful calm retreat with great variety of yoga style"

The atmosphere was calm, everything felt so easy, like spending time with friends. I felt so well, balanced, while i was here. The food was excellent, I will admit it was different from what i am used to as i am not vegan or vegetarian, however there was always so much healthy and tasty food at each meal. I felt like I was also having a healthy food retreat as a bonus !

I learned so much in the yoga classes, several different styles were included in the days I was there, which i enjoyed because i am still relatively new to yoga (3 months practice) and this retreat expanded my knowledge and ability.

Santiago our host and teacher has a wonderful personality and relaxed manner. I felt he was an authentic and very generous teacher, always happy to discuss the yoga sessions and also eat, talk and laugh with us.

Overall a wonderful experience and great value for money, this was a retreat that i will remember for many years.

The location is beautiful, just a few minutes walking from the beautiful empty beach, the house clean (even for my sister who is super picky when it comes to cleaness :) ). And most importantly, Santi and his approach to yoga and us has tought us so much, the practices were always wonderful and he is the best host ever, Can’t wait to come back!

Es un lugar donde se trasmite el cariño, y el amor por lo que uno hace , me llamo la atención la comida y el reciclaje que hace Santiago con la comida que le sale maravillosa. Solo me queda darles las gracias a el a su maravillosa compañera Rebeca que trasmite tanta ternura. Gracias 😘con el deseo de volver pronto

"First retreat of my life - will return!"

As soon as I arrived at the retreat I was made to feel very welcome. The group was finishing lunch but Santiago left the table to greet me and show me around the property and my room. I was lucky enough to grab some leftover lunch as well which was lovely as I arrived later than planned.

The house, the rooms, and the bathrooms were all spotlessly clean, warm and cozy, and I immediately felt at ease.

You can do as little or as much yoga as you want to, and as I wanted to rest as much as possible I only participated in a few yoga classes but the evening yin yoga was my favourite - very relaxing, stretching, and flowing to wonderful soft music.

The back of the house looks onto the mountains and the beautiful sunrise. The front terrace looks out onto the garden and the sunsets were incredible. The beach is also only a few minutes walk and the sandy beach was mostly deserted and therefore very quiet. The warm mediterranean sea was the perfect place for playing with the waves and looking back at the mountains in the distance.

I have to mention here, the most delicious food I have ever had the pleasure to eat. Always fresh and made on the day....breakfast, lunch, and dinner with the host and other guests was an experience to never forget. I have asked the host Santiago, and his chef, Rebecca, to write down their recipes in a book for guests to purchase on leaving. The food was that good, trust me!

Thankyou to all the wonderful people I met at this retreat :)

La casa es una preciosidad, cuidada al detalle. Santi y Rebeca te hacen sentir en familia, siempre están disponibles con una sonrisa y un gesto amoroso. Las conversaciones compartidas y el interés por tu bienestar y el de los demás hacen que la experiencia sea perfecta. Los alimentos todo un manjar para el paladar, rico, abundante y de calidad. El entorno es fabuloso, tranquilo, con montaña y playa, perfecto para relajarte y conectar contigo. Infinitas gracias por este compartir, por crear tanta belleza y transmitirlo con tanto amor y naturalidad. Tenéis un gran pedacito de mi corazón.🙏❤️

Santiago is a great instructor. He broadens your knowledge of different yoga styles, teaches the art of letting go and finding your inner peace. As well, the location of the house is excellent, just 2-3 minutes from the beach. Practising yoga or meditate under the sounds of seawaves has a very relaxing effect. and the food is very delicious and healthy.

You’ll definetely take with yourself useful life tips and be inspired to follow healthy lifestyle and “to live yoga”.

I really more than enjoy my yoga retreat. It was my first one. And it was much more intense that I could imagine. Santiago is very nice, he is a gereat teacher who really push us to listen to our body. I will never forget the atmosphere, the group change all time so you can meet all the time new people. Doing Yoga outside, at sunshine and sunset really means something. Here yoga has signification, it's not a "cool attitude" or anything else. The food is good and equpment simple but authentic.

Thanks so much

"The perfect place for a yoga experience"

Casa de Yoga in Cullera is a perfect place to slow down, reconnect with yourself, meet like minded people and extend your yoga practice whether a beginner or more experienced.

Santi has created a yoga home by the beach which is peaceful and quiet with few distractions. He has fostered a place where you feel at home and deeply cared for.

The yoga and meditation practices are slow and powerful with the option of practicing for upto 5 hours a day starting with meditation at 6am and ending the day with Yin yoga.

Meals are taken together around a large table where stories are shared along with food and helping with the washing up! All food is vegetarian with vegan as the mainstay. The food is fanastic and plentiful!

The beach is a 3 minute walk and is quiet.

I loved my stay with Santi and hope to return again very soon.

The whole week was relaxing. I went with the aim of increasing my flexibility and I achieved that in both body and mind. I loved my time with Be Mindful Yoga and will be back

"Un pequeño oasis de paz en un entorno privilegiado"

La comida superó claramente mis expectativas, siempre sabrosa y variada. Todo una experiencia culinaria. Gracias Rebeca y Santi! Solo tengo palabras de agradecimiento por vuestra amabilidad y cariño. Habéis contribuido sustancialmente a que este retiro sea inolvidable para mi.

Mención especial también a la ubicación de la casa, se halla a pocos minutos andando de una playa muy poco concurrida.

"Un oasis para reencontrarse con uno mismo"

Bemundfulyoga es un lugar de verdad especial. El entorno es privilegiado y muy tranquilo, con una playa virgen a menos de 5 minutos caminando que, incluso en pleno agosto, estaba vacía. La comida es deliciosa, variada y abundante, además de sana. Y las instalaciones cómodas, con todo lo necesario para la práctica de yoga y meditación. Santi es un instructor maravilloso, siempre cuidando los detalles y pendiente de todo el mundo y sus necesidades. En este lugar me sentí como en casa, libre y bienvenida.

"One week in eden"

Wonderful location, amazing beach and villa. The team is made of the most lovely people I ever met. The food is made by an angel, the massages by a magician and the lessons are lead by the warmest heart.

Beyond the discovery of a part of my true self (the journey will take a while longer :-) ), I discovered many different ways of making vegetarian food amazing since I am normally not veggie. Excellent time, excellent food.

"A great place to do yoga and relax"

Santiago is a great instructor, the food is delicious and there is a great beach in walking distance. A place I would definitely visit again.

Dear Santiago. Thank you for the mindful yoga, the wonderful vegetarian food and your generosity as a host. Yours is a very good place to come down and to be yourself. Another highlight is the quiet beach which can be reached in a few minutes and invites to relax or to swim. And it is a good place to meet nice and interesting people with the same aim: to practice yoga ...

"special place"

The nice house with garden its only 3 minutes away from a quiet beach. Santiago is a good teacher and helper on your way to get more in contact with yourself and aceptation. He lives it. I was happy too to be in contact with all the diffrent people there, to enjoy with them, to practise diffrent languages. I liked the natural tasty food and my paddel surf classes :)

"Yoga in valencia"

I found the interaction between yoga and mindfulness very interesting .

The course was not just about yoga and doing all the moves in exactly the same order each day . The instructor was easy to talk to and friendly .He does yoga from the heart and soul. The beach nearby adds to the experience as you can do your own personal meditation there if you wish . I am hoping to come again . I will recommend the place to my friends .

"Geweldige week!"

Deze week was een speciale ervaring tijdens onze vakantie. Santiago is een geweldige gastheer en een inspirerende yogateacher. Hij laat je delen in zijn leven en neemt je mee in zijn meditaties en yogapractice. In een kleine en steeds wisselende groep vormden we een internationale familie die aanschoof aan zijn tafel. Superlekker veganfood en een fijn huis om te verblijven. Op enkele minuten lopen ligt een prachtig en rustig strand. De ruisende palmen en de golven zijn altijd dichtbij.

"Peaceful homely yoga retreat"

Santi is very passionate about yoga and you can feel this in the practice and in any other conversation. The relaxation at the end was very profound. Location is 2 minutes walking to a very calm nice beach. The atmosphere is very home like. Interesting people. Flexible dates. I would recommend this retreat.

Fantastic location for beaching during off time, great food, small yoga groups! Santiago was kind and down to earth! We would definitely sign up again!

"Will be returning!"

Santiago is generous with his kindness and gently guided me through the classes and our daily discussions, I found the calmness and rest I was looking for and truly enjoyed the food, the house and the amazing location. The food was very tasty and the recipes did nor repeat during my week's stay. The beach, 5 minutes walk away, is very quite and clean. I will definitely come back at least once a year, being a very busy professional, I feel I finally found a place where I can stop and take care of my well being.

"A week of pure relaxation by the sea"

Food was excellent all week- I tried lots of different food, very healthy and tasty.

The yoga was great in the morning and evening- a great level that was adapted to our needs by Shanti. It was only a 3 minute walk from the beach which is really quiet with clear, warm water. You can even hear the crashing waves as you do the yoga in the house . Perfect place If you need some quiet downtime.

"Semaine exceptionnelle à Cullera Beach chez Santiago"

Outre la proximité de la superbe plage et l'eau délicieuse, c'est la personnalité de Santiago qui fait que ce séjour s'est si bien passé. On sent que ce qui importe pour li, c'est que l'on soit bien et il s'adapte à chaque personnalité. De plus, il cuisine très bien et essaie d'inventer de nouvelles recettes chaque jour. Sa manière d'enseigner le Yoga m'a également beaucoup plu.

Santiago has some really postive energy and is a great host. He realy connects and you can discuss anything, he wants you to be free. The food is all organic, fresh and vegetarian, which was Amazing and really tasty. The people he attrackt to his retreat are wonderful. For me it was a life changing week with good people and positive vibes. The yoga and meditation classes are really good and gives you good mood through the day. 1 minute walking from the retreat you will be at a lovely, serene beach which is totally not touristic. Thank you Santiago.

"Vida de gatetes"

Fuimos a disfrutar del fin de semana de San Juan y regresamos convencidas de que habrá que repetir. Para ser nuestro primer contacto con una experiencia similar no encontramos nada a faltar y si mucho que agradecer. La casa es muy amplia y dispone de todo lo necesario, además Santiago te hace sentir cómodo desde el primer momento. Las actividades programadas se siguen con facilidad y se personalizan cuanto se puede. Las comidas vegetarianas, en su totalidad, son motivo suficiente para no querer irte nunca de allí. Y el mar, tan cerca que acompaña a relajarse sólo con su sonido y olor.

"Beautiful and life-changing experience"

Shanti is a wonderful host. His vegetarian cooking is positively inspired (everyone was begging him to write a cookbook!) and he creates an environment of love, fun, and warmth in the house. We found ourselves bonding with the other retreat-goers, but there was also plenty of time to relax by the beach (a five minute walk away!) and spend time on our own. Shanti truly has a gift for drawing out the best in people. Highly recommended!!

"Lovely and transporting experience "

This is a very special place. Santi is a true teacher in all senses and he has a wonderful presence both on and off the mat. The yoga lessons are quite varied and inspiring. The villa is so clean and beautiful and every day something new appeared to make it even more so. All day you can hear a chorus of birds and the amazing beach and ocean are right next to you. Gorgeous surroundings. Food is fresh, abundant, healthy and delicious. Perfect atmosphere. You can feel the thoughtfulness and loving kindness in every moment. I miss it already.

"Living yoga not only doing yoga "

It was a wonderful experience! A full immersion into yoga practice! The location is really nice 3 minutes from the beach! The food cooked by Santiago was delicious proving that’s possible a vegetarian regime being equally tasty! The yoga practice with him focused on mindfulness excellent! Santi wants this to be a truly life changing experience (to be bought back home and not a pure commercial experience- the so called yoga for hotels) .

"The perfect retreat in a quite location "

Santiago is very caring and provides excellent yoga and meditation sessions.

He prepares super healthy and delicious meals.

The beach is only 5 minutes walk from the retreat, in a quiet and remote area with only few other houses around.

The perfect place to recharge the batteries!

"Fin de semana de desconexion"

La combinación del yoga, con la meditación, y la comida vegetariana, que estaba buenísima. Esta situado muy cerca de la playa. Lo que mas me gustó fue la clase de yoga al amanecer, en el exterior , con la brisa del mar. Me he llevado una gran experiencia.

"A true gem "

The whole experience was outstanding and the focus on balance and mindfulness runs throughout the whole day, outside of the scheduled yoga and meditation sessions, making this a truly holistic retreat. Shanti is an exceptional teacher and guide, adept at understanding individual needs and providing practices and guidance accordingly. The meals are also outstanding; fresh, organic and delicious. I left feeling ready and inspired to keep balance in my life for the long term.

"Una Experiencia Increible! - An Amazing Retreat!"

Lo que mas me gusta es todo! Santi incorpora estil de vida del yoga en todo. El hace todo para que este comodo y bienvenido. La casa es grande y muy limpia, menos de cinco minutos a la playa. Tenia un poco de miedo a comer la comida vegana para una semana. Me encontre deseando comer con mucho gusto cada comida. Santi es un cocinero talentoso y creativo. No podia creer las combinations de los ingredientes a hacer la comida vegana tan rica. Bajo de su instruccion aprendi como hacer la meditacion para la primera vez en mi vida. Eso fue mi objetivo, y Santi tiene mucho ganas a ayudar en todo, explica bien, incorpora metodos y consejos efectivos. Santi es muy majo, patiente, tranquile, y buena compania. Nos tome a una excursion muy buena en los montanas, hemos visto cascadas, y un lago hermoso. Tambien tenia bicicletas a usar en la casa. Fui al centro para ver el castillo donde hay muy buena vistas. Lo recommiendo mucho y espero que pueda volver otra vez.

This retreat is incredible and offered much more than I expected. There are many private rooms without the usual high price tag found with other retreats. Santi is an incredible chef, making each meal unique and delicious. I couldn't believe how much I enjoyed vegan food, being the die hard foodie that I am. I learned how to meditate truly for the first time in my app practicing life. The house is huge, clean, and a five minute walk to the beach. Sant couldn't be more welcoming! Highly recommended on all fronts!

"Great place to rest and get some headspace"

I stayed at the retreat for 6 days. The house is in a lovely location, 5 minutes away from the beach, which is absolutely divine as there is mostly no one around. Practically all neighbours are growing some produce of their own, it’s nice to walk around, smell the amazing orange blossom, see potatoes, cucumbers, pumpkins, lemons, tomatoes, beans and many other fruit and vegetables grow. 15-minute drive will get you to Cullera, which is a town on the coast, which has a wonderful beach, and a castle on a hill worth visiting. A beautiful hike in the mountains along ruins of a deserted monastery in Valle de la Murta is also just 30 minutes away by car.

The yoga and meditation sessions are adjusted to your level and when the groups are small, you have a lot of say in what you want to do, Santiago is very flexible and adjusts to your needs, for instance I asked if we could do the morning sessions outside and that was no problem. You have the freedom to join the classes or not, nothing is obligatory, which gives a lot of rest.

The food prepared by Santiago is vegetarian, for the largest part organic, mostly local, seasonal and tastes great.

All in all, a great place to relax, do what you want and get some headspace.

Santiago, thank you very much for your kindness and hospitality. I really felt at home, relaxed and free!
