GROWTH – « IN ENDLESS FORMS AND SIZES, GLORIOUS COLOURS AND ENTANGLED GUISES. OFTEN BITTER, AT TIMES SWEET. BUT ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL IN ITS VARIETY – AND UTTERLY UNIQUE. »

This is an invitation to embrace growth and change in every form and manifestation.

Change is the nature of all things. When we try to stop it, we are fighting nature. Nature changes through growth and we are a part of that great moving flow. When we accept that change, we can become more adept to grow. We become fluent in transitions and skilled at adapting to new circumstances.

Fall is the perfect moment to harvest the fruits of our own growth and contemplate nature’s transformation, preparing yourself to go deeper before the winter season comes.

Let’s enjoy these last warm, sunny days in the middle of the almost untouched nature which is Tramuntana mountains.
Practicing yoga together & going deeper in asana exploration, meditating at sunrises and contemplating sunsets, sharing nourishing meals cooked with love, exploring the beauty of the island by taking hikes from the doorsteps of the villa, connecting with nature, yourself and beautiful people around you.
