About the place

Granada is music and poetry, monuments which are pure art, and ancient culture. This province reaches towards the skies from the craggy summits of the Sierra Nevada mountains; cities with breathtaking architecture which reside serenely in the Altiplano region; white villages scattered across hills and valleys which slope down to the cliffs and beaches of the Costa Tropical. The province of Granada, tourist destination par excellence, offers travellers the chance to ski in the Sierra Nevada mountains, discover hidden villages in the Alpujarra region, explore the last frontier of the Al-Andalus empire in eastern Granada or stay in caves and experience a troglodyte’s lifestyle. Respecting the harmony and tranquility of the area, we have two Yurts available: a Big Yurt and a Small Yurt and a conventional house: Casa Iris. Both Yurts are located at Armonia Alpujarra Healing Retreat Centre, at the foothills of the spectacular Sierra Nevada Mountains. Looking out from each Yurt, you can enjoy breath-taking views, as you gaze across the stunning olive and almond orchards sloping up towards the majestic Sierras. Armonia Alpujarra is full of organic abundance and is a truly special place: harmonious, healing and peaceful. As well as being eco-friendly, both Yurts are self-contained and part-equipped with all modern facilities. Yurts have a different energy from more conventional living spaces, as their rounded shape creates a sense of spaciousness and tranquillity. At night, you can gaze up at the stars and during the day natural light fills the yurts Nestled in the heart of Armonia Alpujarra, Casa Iris is surrounded by ancient olive and almond groves, wild nature, and enjoys spectacular views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains ~ a truly special place!

Yair Sagy
"After serving in the Israeli army for 4 years, I felt a deep need to change, like an inner voice whispering: ‘that’s not it, you need to continue and explore…your destiny is calling...’ That voice was so strong and I couldn’t ignore it. So I packed up and embarked on a spiritual quest which led me to India where I discovered Yoga, meditation and deep urge to unite with the divine. As the magic continued to evolve I was guided in a way that allowed me, through teaching Yoga, Qi Gong and the practice of Acupuncture, to help my fellow brothers and sisters to heal and transform, as well as support my family."

 

Ziza Fernandes Sagy
"After finishing my army service and my degree in Art, I moved to live in Los Angeles. Whilst living there, I was invited by a friend to be a model in a Foot Reading and Reflexology class. I was amazed by the depth and amount of information the students managed to gather from my feet, as well as the deep physical and emotional experience when I was treated. That experience had a profound effect which helped me understand myself in a new way. For the first time I understood there is a connection between Body-Mind-Emotions and I decided to become a therapist myself. And I felt that I can combine the spiritual and creative together."

 


 


 

 

    I really enjoyed the morning yoga, Qi Gong and meditation sessions; the afternoon teaching and practice sessions, often spent outdoors; and the warm lazy evenings spent outdoors, around a table of light, healthy, delightful food; with easy, good company. The energy and foot reading teaching and practice sessions really supported me to get in tune with my mind, body, heart and spirit. They supported me to let go of things that were blocking me, holding me back; and to open up to new possibilities. from Healing Retreats Testimonial Page

    I have just had the most wonderful experience with Yair and Ziza in their home. It was a surreal experience that took my mind, body and soul out of the hustle of London and strengthened it in the middle of the mountains. I was taken by the serenity and quietness of space we occupied. I felt so blessed to have been in the company of Ziza and Yair. Yair was an excellent yoga and meditation teacher. I have yet to explore his other talents. Ziza was kind, nurturing and had the most breath taking cooking ability. I always looked forward to dining with them and tasting her delicious & healthy food! The facilities were just right. I stayed in the big yurt, which had a view of the mountains and was surrounded by trees. It had a kitchen area, sleeping and relaxation area. It was full of cushions to sit on and very spacious. The outside seating area, hammock, shower was so wonderful. The compost toilet experience was also fun! I have no doubt that I will go back there again, the yoga experience was great, and Ziza and Yair's warmth and conversations was just what I needed to grow and feel contained within. They were so accommodating and did quite a lot to make me feel at home. I felt comfortable to be myself, felt free and strong. Thank you Yair and Ziza, I'm very grateful for this experience and I look forward to seeing you both again. from Healing Retreats Testimonial Page

    Ziza understands food is medicine but she makes it so tasty. I have transformed how I look at vegetables now and realised there are so many wonderful ways to cook delicious nutritious food. So after having spent 5 days eating Ziza’s amazing array of food, I’m a convert. I am cooking and preparing differently and I am so much the healthier for it. I also have an insight into how to make a variety of vegetarian dishes that are so delicious you don’t miss the meat! Ziza’s food is a feast to behold. If you can get her recipes or are lucky enough to go to her retreat, you are in for a very special treat. Yair is special. He has a gift to transform your energy. I always feel more centred, more energetic and more positive after a session with Yair. He has been my secret energy transformer but his gifts are so powerful, the secret needs to spread. Ziza can give you insights about your life, through your feet. She uses a combination of reading the feet to reflexology and the result is a real shift of perception. That perception shift has lead to a behaviour shift and an opening up of many more opportunities for me. from Healing Retreats Testimonial Page

    Thank you for a wonderful retreat. I have come away feeling beautifully relaxed, recharged and encouraged to keep going on my journey! The generosity and care you both showed us was so heartwarming. Sharing your home reminded me about the joys of nourishing healthy food prepared with love and also about living with the environment not inspite of it. A deep and expanding experience. You guys rock! I look forward to seeing you both again. With love and gratitude. from Healing Retreats Testimonial Page

    Thank you so much for all the nourishment and loveliness I received from your home. It was the best birthday I've ever had. Such a beautiful time of reconnecting, and meeting beautiful people. Such a gift! and I will think of you and Ziza always, as an inspiration for how to stay centred in a beautiful way of life and to share it with others. Again, much love, kisses and gratitude for the beautiful time. from Healing Retreats Testimonial Page

    "Must have experience! Would highly recommend everyone to immerse in this experience at least once. It is a beautiful, purifying and peaceful environment, everything from the unique yurt stay to the fresh, home-grown food and the first-time biodanza experience! The best part yet is the wonderful hosts, Yair and Ziza. They felt like family and made this an unforgettable experience!" from Healing Retreats Testimonial Page

    One could think that it was a very nice coincidence but the more I think of it, the more I am sure it was destiny that brought us here...we wanted to get away for a few days with our little son and ended up in the most unusual place, a place I might think of very close to paradise. So peaceful and full of harmony, living in the yurts, tasting your delicious food and experiencing your treatment, yoga and qi gong...that was magical. Thank you for so much love and peace! from Healing Retreats Testimonial Page

    "t was a pleasure to stay there. The hospitality, the accommodation, the nature, the food, the yoga activities and treatments were all amazing and so enjoyable. Really nice, what does a person needs more? Without the lovely company of all the participants I would not have learned about lessons in life, data theory, masters in law, famous people, body language, dreams etc. Every single moment of this retreat was great, all the good feelings brought me back to a totally fearless existance, as when I was 14 years old. Wow … The amount of energy is still peaking and it makes me feel happy and strong to face the reality. The recipe book is so inspiring. Thank you Ziza. I tried some of them (my own version) and shopping is more enjoyable than before." from Healing Retreats Testimonial Page

    I could only recommend Armonia Alpujarra - for the body (great pool, great food, great yoga) for the mind (healing treatments) and for the soul (your beautiful energy Yair and Ziza, your treatments, the yoga and meditation). And last, but not least, your general, truthful and kind acceptance of children and their own ways 🙂 thank you. from Healing Retreats Testimonial Page
