YOGA RETREAT WITH PILAR DE MIGUEL & SHIRY HOD
JULY 27TH – AUG 3RD, 2019
Pilar and Shiry met in 2015 in south Indian city of Mysore, the Mecca of Ashtanga yoga. Where their guru Sharath Jois teaches traditional Ashtanga Yoga, and the click was imminent. Two warm-Mediterranean tempered souls that devoted their life path to this beautiful practice.
Since then, they kept visiting their teacher annually and built a strong bond both in and outside the shala (theres nothing like practicing side by side with a good friend).
In December 2017 Shiry got the blessing from her Guru to teach Ashtanga mysore style (authorized level 1), she is the first authorized teacher in Israel. She teaches ashtanga classes in Tel Aviv and is the owner of COME OM an online yoga and activewear brand.
In February 2019 Pilar got Sharathji’s blessing as well (authorized level 2) and combines teaching at her Mallorca based Mysore program – Ashtanga Yoga Portals, with her growing business ‘Balearic Retreats’ that hosts renown teachers from all over the world in her hometown Mallorca.
Our ‘introduction to mysore practice’ retreat is ideal for anyone who is interested in building a strong daily practice according to the Ashtanga method. We will learn the foundations of the practice and explore key asanas (postures) in the primary series of Ashtanga.
We will deepen our philosophical knowledge, discuss the benefits and healing aspect of the yoga practice, and off course how to find practice-life balance in our everyday life.
The retreat would take place in a beautiful house in Mallorca, we will enjoy amazingly fresh local delights cooked by our private chef, and get to explore this magical Mediterranean island on our free time.

ABOUT THE TEACHER
PILAR DE MIGUEL
Level 2 Authorized teacher by Sharath Jois
Pilar has been practicing different styles of yoga for years, but when she discovered Ashtanga Yoga in 2014, she instantly fell in love with this practice, as she deeply connected with the profound and transformative experience of combining breath and meditation with movement.
She quit her job in the international media field and started traveling to Mysore, India, to practice with her teacher and Guru, Sharath Jois. That´s where following her heart decided to create “Balearic Retreats” and bring some of the Mysore Magic to her home island, Mallorca, to later expand it to many other countries.
She has experience organizing retreats for very well known yoga teachers, and combines it with her yearly trips to Mysore and teaching both national and internationally.
