Brazilian Jiujitsu

Brazilian Jiujitsu is a martial art that teaches a smaller person how to defend himself or herself against a larger adversary by using leverage and proper technique. Based on Judo and traditional Jiujitsu, the art is a self-defense system that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. This art form is also very useful for women looking to learn self-defense.

Menorca

Menorca is an island in the Balearic islands of Spain. Its beaches are unspoilt and idyllic with glistening sand and turquoise water. Outside peak season, it is still often warm enough to sit in the sun and the temperature is ideal for strolling around the coastal paths.

The island has been quietly encouraging sustainable tourism for years, long before it became fashionable. Its gentle landscapes are ideal for activities such as walking, cycling, or riding; with no scary sharp inclines for those who are not super fit.

Stone monuments dating back thousands of years are scattered across the countryside, providing markers for a hiking holiday, while ancient coastal paths have been restored to link the never ending series of perfect coves.

    "From the moment I arrived Leila took such good care of me. I arrived exhausted and stressed and Leila took the time to understand me and then to provide a very personalized retreat aimed at helping me recover and recuperate. I left relaxed and so much happier. The food she makes is delicious especially the smoothies and infusions she makes daily. The sessions had a great mix of meditation, breathing techniques and yoga poses which really helped me recenter and relax. The walk to the beach and yoga on the beach were particularly good. She went at my pace and really understood how I was each day and how to support me. She has also given me great tips and ideas for my every day life, and is very happy to share. She isn't focused on making money, more on giving really good support and care. The farmhouse is a really lovely and relaxing place. It's really beautiful and very rural - being in nature is really great for recovery. The amenities are great - comfy bed, lovely waterfall shower, toiletries and towels provided. The breakfast is great and the pool is perfect. There are so many places to relax, read, chill out around the farmhouse. I'd absolutely recommend Orenda retreats to anyone as Leila will work with where you're at and your goals. I am hoping to go on an organized retreat later in the year with Leila as I found this one so beneficial"

    "The food, the location were just amazing. The location is beautiful, so close to nature and allows you to really relax and forget. The food is delicious and cooked with passion and love. I really enjoyed Leila’s yoga sessions, and the Thai massage. I initially came for three days, never done yoga, had years of stressful life due to my business, and i decided to stay for extra days for more private sessions with Leila in Mafia. She takes time to listen and understand what the issues are and tailor the practice to your needs. This has been eye opening experience for me. I will definitely come back, and will recommend to friends and family."

    "I loved every bit of it. Leila and Pole Pole Staff were so welcoming. I enjoyed the mix of yoga and having the flexibility to explore the island and to go on excursions. The marine life is breathtaking. I really liked Leila’s style of teaching, and the combination of asanas, meditation , walking meditation on the beach and the Thai massage was amazing. It was nice mix of holiday and yoga. I was there for 5 days and i wish i could've done a whole week!"

    "Thank you for making me feel welcome. The food, the location and the service were excellent. I enjoyed Leila's yoga sessions, and the flexibility she gave, her voice is also so relaxing that you end up in such deep sleep during yoga relaxation. The excursions were great and eye opening into the marine life, which makes Mafia so exceptional. You don’t get bored at all. I was even lucky to snorkel with whale sharks! Amazing experience!"

    "We found La Terre des Bois to be just what we had hoped for in terms of privacy, self-sufficiency, and location for our exploring. We found this place a great sanctuary from the bustle of a rather busy schedule we had prepared. All in all, a fine experience and a beautiful gite. We wish Stef the best of luck in her future endeavors at Le Terres Des Bois."

    "I really felt I was able to disconnect from the daily stresses but connect more with myself for few days, and calm my mind. It was really good way to force myself to slow down and be mindful. I enjoyed the garden for reading and loved the view of the garden while doing yoga. What stood out also was the mindfulness meditation and the nasal cleansing."

    "The overall atmosphere was calming and friendly. I enjoyed the natural setting, the amazing outdoor patio for yoga, and the well balanced program with practice and time off the mat. I enjoyed the meditations , and how they moved me towards more meaningful practice in this area. The combination of hike and archaeology was amazing a really nice educational addition. The nutritious food made the retreat whole.I am grateful for spending time with a mother and daughter team who both did so much to make this a personalized, relaxed experience. Anja is most kind and beautiful soul."

    "Leila has given me massages on different occasions. The first time when I was pregnant and my back muscles were badly strained and my feet were hurting from the baby weight. Another time was three months after giving birth and again, my neck and shoulders were tense. On every occasion, Leila understood what my body needed without much explaining from my side. When she is doing a massage, she completely immerses herself in it and has the ability to read the body and and the problem areas very well. She combines pressure and stretching and customizes the massage according to personal needs. If I was living in the same town as Leila, I would run for a massage session at every opportunity. Her massages have been the best Ive got."

    "Leila is amazing! Super nice to be around and allows people around her to be themselves and she meets them where they are without trying to resolve their issues, which she does gracefully. Furthermore, there is never a dull moment."
