The Organisers !
Yasmin’s keen interest in the subject of ‘Yoga’ grew unexpectedly from attending gym style ‘Yoga’ classes. This interest was further enhanced by a teacher based at the Nottingham Y.M.C.A. His calming influence, in his capacity as a teacher during classes, encouraged Yasmin to research and access the more subtle aspects of ‘Yoga’, thus began her ‘Journey’ inwards.
Yasmin has returned to India on numerous occasions. Her overriding aspiration was to try to “join the dots” as it were, of Modern western Yoga practice, to the traditional ‘Eastern philosophy. This lead Yasmin to the ‘Holy City of Rishikesh’, nestled away in the famous foothills of the Himalayas, where she was inspired to study under the the ‘Akanda’ school under the well respected guru Yogrishi Vishvketu.
Yasmin’s style of teaching is ‘Holistic’ in nature. She believes that ‘Yoga’ is about allowing people the space to practice safely, so they can develop their own understanding of yoga.’ Yasmin is also a qualified deep tissue massage therapist and holds monthly ‘Wellness’ events that aim to incorporate and shares her knowledge of ‘Yoga’. She has been a frequent visitor to Ibiza, and has found the peace and beauty of the Balearic island to be of great interest and inspiration.
I first came to Ibiza 4 years ago and was struck by it’s natural beauty, green Valleys and hills ( even in mid summer !) secluded beaches and diversity of landscape. I hired a car and got high just by driving around, probably receiving the special vibration, the sacred heartbeat of Ibiza. Pretty soon i discovered that Ibiza has so many hidden treasures, best discovered by hiking ! I found a small German book with 3-4 hour walks all around the island, and filled many winter days with exploring these walks, finding out new ones myself and be absolutely thilled by the views, the roughness of some high cliff coastlines backed up by beautiful romantic landscapes filled with white blossemed almond trees in february. Often i stopped walking, stood still for a minute and was overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of hidden valleys, the smell of the flowers and gentle winds cooling my head. And that all most of the time in T-shirt and short walking pants.
One of my strongest passions now is to share these experiences, to share the beauty of natural Ibiza and all it got to offer. So i decided to offer guided walks all season in Ibiza and special retreats with the main focus on body awareness and hiking.
