Wellness And Yoga Retreats – TEAM

Wellness And Yoga Retreats

Founded in 2004 by osteopath & yoga teacher Manuel Ponce and designer Brandon Everett as a space to share with you the magic of yoga as healing art and celebrate the wonder that is Spain

Our Ethos

Go slow, keep moving

The best of all nature cures, rest is not about being inert. Movement is essential for your wellbeing. You were born to move

Move as you rest. And stay healthy and happy

Reduced-impact tourism

From carbon offsetting your air-miles to using public transport, enjoying a vegetarian diet, and outsourcing accommodation, we strive to make your visit enjoyable and beneficial for you, the local community and the planet

Nature and nurture

Continuously inhabited since pre-history, and embedded in a pristine landscape straddling two national parks, Trujillo is both rural idyl and a microcosm of old and modern Spain

At once bucolic and urbane it’s a prefect place to practice yoga and enjoy an authentic and intimate contact with the people, culture and land of this fascinating country

Brandon

Co-ordinator & Vegetarian Cook

Artist, designer, vegetarian cook: Brandon’s artistic career has spanned four decades. He graduated in fashion and textile design from the Bradford College of Art, taught art in Mexico City, then settled on a career in costume for stage, film and TV

Brandon is a dedicated life-long vegetarian and pours his boundless inventiveness and imagination into creating dishes that never fail to delight

As a Quaker, Brandon brings a unique quality of stillness to our wellness yoga retreats: the Quaker way of sitting quietly, open to the “inner light”
