VARIOUS CLIENT SUCCESS STORIES
We were so delighted to meet and help each of the clients in the stories below.
Guest at Armonia Alpujarra:
Dear Ziza and Yair,
Coming to stay at Armonia Alpujarra Healing Retreat after the detox was as good a decision as going on the detox. The two just go together. It was for me a delicious nurturing treat after all the wonderful cleansing we did at the detox centre and the results were magnified.
I really enjoyed staying in your yurt surrounded by nature with no pressures, just to enjoy, relax, rebuild and dine on Ziza’a lovely healthy vegetarian food. The benefits are something I do not take for granted and feel so appreciative of.
Thank you also for introducing me to the beautiful area you live in and the special people you know. Meeting your sister and her friend from Israel was a pleasure. I just loved our visit to the goat farmer who works so efficiently with his lovely goat herd. And hiking to your friend with the bountiful garden, chestnuts, grapes, pumpkins etc. what an interesting, inspirational friend. And one more session at the Biodanza with you Ziza was super.
With love and wishing you blessings in abundance.

Detox International January 2017:
Hi Yair and Ziza
It’s Michaela who met you both at the detox international in January. I’ve had you in my thoughts ever since. I’ve been practising your yoga DVD daily, and my ability had really improved. The lessons you taught me during my week stay, was beyond my wildest dreams and my life has been growing and rapidly changing ever since. You enabled me to find my connection between mind, body and spirit; while practicing yoga. Your free teaching of yoga is quite amazing and I only wish you lived in England so I could attend daily classes. The shiatsu that you provided me with was amazing and enabled my body to stretch and release old blockages. I wondered if you sold any more yoga DVDs? I love waking each morning and working out to your dvd…. I hope your both well.
Lots of love light and laughter,
Yoga Classes with Yair June 2016:
I have been attending Yoga classes for a while before having two Yoga Therapy Classes with Yair, during the Detox Week and I must say that I have learned more in those two sessions than in one year of collective Yoga classes.
Yair sees immediately what part of the body is not placed correctly in the different postures and points it out. So, that when you do your posture again you know if ‘yes or no’ you are doing it well and you can correct it.
Besides, from the beginning, he explains some fundamentals in Yoga that I’ve never heard about and which are a way to understand better what part of the body you have to work on, whatever the posture.
I recommend the Yair’s Yoga Therapy Classes to everybody who wants to improve his or her yoga techniques.
Short Private Retreat:
What can I say… I have nothing but good words about my stay here. Ziza and Yair have created a little heaven in and around their Olive Farm, a place filled with so much love, energy and care and a reminder to us all that life can be truly beautiful…
Yoga under the stars, beautiful walks, fantastic food, interesting conversation…Ziza and Yair are two very special people who will do everything they can to ensure that you have a wonderful time at their retreat ~ always plenty of time for relaxation too!
If you want to get away from the City and immerse yourself in nature, with beautiful people and beautiful things, then this is the place for you!
Ziza and Yair, thank you on so many levels, it was an absolute pleasure x”

Detox Holiday Spain:
Dear Ziza and Yair,
Time is running fast and it is almost one year since I met you at the detox in Southern Spain. I was struggling a lot – both as an impact from my own history, but also because my family was having a very hard time. You had been so good to my wife for some years and much because of that I decided that I had to attend the detox, mostly to meet you and get some guidance. I was terrified before leaving home, because of my anxiety which had taken grip of me. The first couple of days at the detox was very difficult, although meeting so many wonderful people alleviated the fear a lot. But I remember coming to you for the first session decided that I had to go home, in a way giving in. You managed to break my thought pattern and get me back on the right track. The defining moment happened in the second session where you “proved” that I am not my thoughts – I am the one that is aware of the thoughts – observing them. This had a crucial effect for me. Together with your statement that the mind is a tool that should be used for creative and analytical thinking – and that is it :), these are defining statements that are in my “toolbox” (sheet of guidances) which I have available for looking into whenever I need to. Also the session I had with Ziza at the detox was very crucial. The wisdom exposed had a deep impact and the book Ziza recommended for me (“The Untethered Soul”) made a huge impact on me.
My life up through the years had in a way been defined by conventional patterns of what to do to be “successful” and thereby has been pursued by a lot of willpower and determination in the try to succeed. Then fatigue of this life and some personal tragic accidents lead to the derailments (at least that is my opinion) and getting into the dark. So what you did for me (and my family) I am ever grateful and will never forget. Now I am back in normal life and feeling I am handling it well. I am very much enjoying my work developing and maintaining our software product – not out of an objective to succeed (focus on the objective, not being present), but out of sheer joy and thankful for having the chance to be able to do what I do. I am reminding myself to enjoy the journey and be present in my life and grateful for each day I receive with all the opportunities. When I from time to time get some of the symptoms I take out my “toolbox” and look at it and also think about you and all your wisdom that I was so lucky to get some of.
Dear Ziza and Yair: Again, I must say that I am ever grateful to have met you. I wish you all the best and also hope you will enjoy a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s holiday 🙂 Lots of love from
Energy and Foot Reading Retreat:
“It’s some time since I participated in Yair and Ziza’s energy and foot reading retreat; and yet, the memories of the retreat linger on, like the sweet smell of roses on a warm summer’s day.
I arrived at the retreat tired, with aching muscles, and feeling stressed, tight, anxious. I remember, just a day or two into the retreat, suddenly noticing that the aches and pains in my body had disappeared, as if by magic; and I was feeling energized, light, happy, at ease with myself, the people around me, and the world. The retreat is based in a peaceful, sunny, warm and beautiful place; and Yair and Ziza created a holding, caring, supportive, and loving environment.
I really enjoyed the morning yoga, qigong, and meditation sessions; the afternoon teaching and practice sessions, often spent outdoors; and the warm lazy evenings spent outdoors, around a table of light, healthy, delightful food; with easy, good company. The energy and foot reading teaching and practice sessions really supported me to get in tune with my mind, body, heart and spirit. They supported me to let go of things that were blocking me, holding me back; and to open up to new possibilities, new ways of knowing, new ways of connecting, new ways being in the world. The retreat supported me to let go, relax, open up; and to fully step into the life I was born to live.
It was a truly magical retreat, in a magical place, with magical people. I’d go back without hesitation!”
Energy Reading Workshop London:
I did a group workshop with Yair in the UK – to explore how it is that we feel and read energy. The way that Yair set up the work of the day brought us into a sensibility with energy in a very light, clear, down to earth, fun and explorative way. I loved the whole experience and received much from it, it allowed me to clarify some personal understandings/misunderstandings around my 6th sense. Yair and the process of the day gently reminded me how obtrusive my mind can be in allowing me to rest in that great natural open ‘sensing’ that energy attunement is – and I received an unexpected healing from the day. The exercises that Yair did to bring us to this place of attunement ranged from inner visualisations and ‘sensings’ to physical play with Qi Kong and voice work, boosting our hara power and fully centering us in the here and now. We explored time in nature too. I felt that Yair held the sensibilities of the group with warmth, with full attention and with care. I am very happy to have met him and give recently thanks 🙂
