A Yoga & Culture Holiday in Historical Mallorca
with Danielle Satya Parla
July 18-25th, 2017
Set in one of the oldest regions on the island, the traditional Mallorcan village of Porreres is famous for it’s delectable apricots and relaxed local living. It’s a gem that remains off the radar for most tourists and it provides a beautiful insight into traditional Mallorca. The primary focus of this week is YOU. Unplug and immerse yourself in Mallorcan living, yogic practices and find the space to breathe away from the demands of daily life. Enjoy the traditional village of Porreres, eat delicious vegetarian cuisine and explore Mallorca off the beaten path - beaches, nature reserves, villages and vineyards, Mallorcan gastronomy, and sightseeing and shopping in Palma.
For more than 20 years Danielle Satya Parla has naturally married her work in psychology with the wisdom of the
Eastern ancient sciences. Trained in classical Indian Hatha, Yin, Kundalini and Ayurvedic Yoga, she has
shared her understanding of the ancient teachings with students in Japan, Canada, NZ, India, Nepal,
Spain and Switzerland. A certified breathworker and Reiki master, Danielle empowers you to practice the
tools that move you towards greater presence, health and joy.
I look forward to welcoming you.

The Daily Programme
Each day will begin with optional meditation and pranayama followed by a morning yoga class on the open upper terrace that aims to strengthen and energise the body and attune the mind to the breath. The morning practice is followed by a nourishing breakfast, and leisure time for you to relax on one of the terraces or explore the village and magnificent island.
We will meet again in early evening for a second yoga session that will focus more on calming and relaxing. After class we will enjoy a delicious vegetarian dinner, followed by satsang, enjoying the village square or simply relaxing. There will be one yoga free day during the week in order to give your body a rest and the freedom to explore further afield.
There's plenty of space within the property to find a quiet spot and relax with a book or catch some rays. We are located in Porreres’ village center and access to the town plaza, shops and many restaurants and cafés are just 1 minute walk away.
For those with an adventurous spirit consider hiring a car to explore the outstanding beauty of this island. Beaches, swimming, nature reserves, kite surfing, snorkelling, hiking, town-hopping, wineries, hill top monasteries, and the Serra de Tramuntana - a stunning mountain range on the NW side of the island that was given UNESCO World Heritage status for it physical and cultural significance.
It is easy to drive or take the local bus into the vibrant capital city of Palma for an afternoon of shopping, eating at trendy restaurants, and visiting the beautiful old town and local attractions like the spectacular Santa María cathedral overlooking the Bay of Palma and the Almudaina - a Moorish-style Arab fortress converted to a royal residence. Palma is home to a thriving art scene and the Joan Miró Museum.
