Dear Friends,

"Great things are done when Man and Mountains meet "
William Blake 

It can often feel like doing the right thing is the more difficult path to take . That speaking up when our voice trembles and allowing ourselves to really feel with our whole hearts - empathy , compassion , sorrow , hurt and pain of others can sometimes feel too much.   But despite our resistance and our reluctance , I believe that resistance can sometimes be our biggest teacher.   The practice of Yoga challenges us on many levels - our mind, our bodies and our discipline..but if we go through it all and stay with the practice - it offers us many rewards and can be our eye in the storm when everything else might be shaking .   This is the beauty of the practice and the grace of using the tools that we have been given .

We were deeply touched by our community as everyone came together with great generosity to our donation practices last week in both in Santa Catalina and Portals. Together we raised a wonderful amount of money to support a friend in our community that needs our financial and emotional support. Thank You to all of you who so generously donated and to Mirjam and Katja for co teaching with Sandra to share the practice of giving.
We received a wonderful donation from a dear friend and yogi who donated a very generous amount beyond what we ever THANK YOU to each and every one of you.

We have a wonderful addition to our Earth Yoga family with the special news that Agnes gave birth to a healthy and beautiful boy on the 28th May. We are so happy for her and her partner Alfonso!   Agnes is taking some very much needed time off to dedicate herself to baby and we look forward to when she returns in her own time .

As we move into the summer months we have made some new changes to the schedule and we are really pleased to introduce our new Yoga Power Hour with Frank at Earth Yoga on Wednesdays from 17.45-18.45 in the small shala. 

And we have a weekly Conscious breath work and Healing Meditation with Jeanne every Friday at 10am.

We love our new teachers that have taken on weekly classes here at Earth Yoga,  Silje teaches a Jivamukti inspired class on Saturday mornings, Danae teaches a wonderful Vinyasa flow class on Tuesday Evenings and Annie teaches a great dynamic Vinyasa Flow class on Thursday evenings. If you have not taken or experienced any of their classes yet, please come and try.

Also we have have decided to move our Saturday and Sunday Morning Practice to 10am instead of 10.30am. This is to give our yogis more time to enjoy the day and we feel it is still a nice time to sleep a little longer AND make it to practice at 10am! The time change will begin from Sunday 1 July.


This month we have some great events taking place.....

We begin with our monthly Colloidal Gold & Tibetan Sound Healing class with Sarah Livesey, Jack Pescod and Sandra Donovan. It takes place on Saturday 16th June at 4pm. There is no need to pre register just come along 15 mins before the healing begins.


We are so proud to offer the sacred teachings of Nico Luce. He will be offering two workshops on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 June.  He is a truly special teacher and is a good friend of Earth Yoga and Brent McKay. We are so happy that he is coming back and we can not recommend him strongly enough .   He has a way of weaving philosophy, his love for yoga and the sequences in a very special way . Do not miss this opportunity...


Dolores Mihanovich from the Inner Alchemy School will be presenting a workshop on the Male ancestors and its relevance in the Family Tree.

"When we open our hearts to the qualities of a specific grandparent it brings changes to our vibration, to our family, society and the natural world. It increases the light and love in the family tree. These changes are subtle, but very real and can be very powerful.  When we acknowledge a grandparent with sincere gratitude, it brings freedom to the individual and society – freedom from the continuous cycle of suffering.  Discover the possibilities your Grandfathers and  Great Grandfathers offer to you and start healing your family tree."

Date : Saturday 30 June /  4.30pm - 7.30pm
Price : 35€
Information and  registration:


 We are also approaching the cut off date for our Early Bird price for our training with Jeanne Heileman.   We are so happy to receive the teachings of Jeanne and to offer this 200 Hour Tantra Flow Yoga Teacher Training again. This will be a wonderful opportunity to not only dive deeper into the practice but to learn the sacred tools of yoga ...chakras , deeper understanding of fundamental and more challenging asanas, Ayurveda , meditation and pranayama. Feel free to contact us for more information or support .

We look forward to sharing our summer with you and the great tools of yoga.

With Love

Dear Friends,

" There is a legacy deep within us , a legacy of instinct , a legacy of deep inherited feelings , which may lie very deep in the tissues- it may lie deep under all the parts of civilization which we are familiar with on a daily basis , but it has not gone -  we may have left the natural world , but the natural world has not left us."  By Michael Mc Cain - naturalist 

I fell in love with this quote when I heard it as it resonates so deep in so many of us .....and with spring blossoming all around us, birds are sharing their beautiful song ......if we just step outside, into the wild ...and listen. I think no matter where we come from or what life we live, most of us are moved by the spring and re birth.   Our lives are mostly moving in a linear way and the promise of re birth after all that has been frozen connects us to that life is indeed moving in a cycle .

Spring is an opportunity to take stock, to re value and clean inside and out.   Where are we heading? Are we spending enough time doing what deeply connects us to our hearts?  Are we using our energy wisely caring for ourselves, those loved ones around us and also our planet ?  We are honored to walk together on this path of self reflection, nurturing not only ourselves but all around us - let us continue to inspire and evolve together .

This month we are creating a few changes to our schedule and are welcoming some new teachers to Earth Yoga:

After almost 8 years of guiding and nurturing our community every Saturday Morning our dear Katja has decided to spend more time with family, animals and self on Saturday mornings. We are so grateful for all the hours, all the talks, the tears, the smiles and love that Katja has shared with all of our Santa Catalina community. As many of you know our Saturday classes with Katja rarely ended on time :) as she was always giving that little bit extra and more heart. We are sad to see her go but please know that Katja has not left Earth Yoga !   She is still teaching and managing our space in Portals and we will bring her to you in Santa Catalina for subbing as much as we can. In fact she will be teaching Sandra´s regular class this coming Friday 11 May at 10am.

We are very excited to introduce Silje who will be taking over our Saturday 10 am classes. Silje is a wonderful teacher from Norway with many years of experience teaching both Jivamukti Yoga and Flow Yoga. Our 10.30 practice with Silje on Saturdays will now be a Jivamukti class - filled with a dynamic flow practice, chanting and theme of the month.

Please know that Emily will still be teaching her Yin Yoga practice in the Small Shala every Saturday at 10.30.

We are also introducing a change on Thursday evenings ...Frank has served our community with his safe alignment and breath inspired practice. He has inspired many yogis with his warm heart and enthusiasm for the practice of yoga.  However, he will no longer be teaching the Thursday evening slot at 19.00 but we will instead teach the Earth Yoga Power Hour with Frankevery Wednesday at 17.45- 18.45 .  This will take place in the small shala and will be for those of you who really want to strengthen and build heat through a shorter and more dynamic practice. The first Power Hour Class will take place on Wednesday 16th May.

We are really happy to introduce Annie as our teacher for the regular Vinyasa Flow practice on Thursdays at 19.00. She will guide a dynamic vinyasa practice with deep focus on breath and the promise of longer stretches towards the end of the practice .

We will pause our Candle Light Healing Yoga Practice for the spring / summer and look forward to sharing this practice again with you when fall and winter arrives. Stephanie will still teach her 10am Wednesday morning practice which is a wonderful blend of Yang and Yin practice .


As well as the changes to our regular schedule we also have some exciting events taking place over the next couple of months.....

We begin with a chance to experience the magic of Wim Hof breathing techniques with Luke Wills at Earth Yoga. This 2 hour workshop will begin at 20.15 straight after Sandra's Vinyasa Class this evening (Wednesday 9 May). If you have any questions or would like to book please email or call Tracy on 636 169 628

This coming Saturday 12 May we welcome Anabel Miranda back to Earth Yoga. She will be hosting an Arm Balance and Hip Opening Workshop. Please get in touch if you would like to reserve a space :

Nico Luce  is one of the most inspiring teachers that have shared their knowledge at Earth Yoga . We are so lucky to have him back with us in June . He blends the philosophy of yoga, movement and deep ancient teachings in such a wonderful way . Once again please contact us for more info or to reserve your spot.

And finally, Jeanne Heileman will be back at Earth Yoga and hosting her 200hr Tantra Flow Teacher Training  between 17 - 30 September and 22 October - 3 November 2018. Registration is now open and there is an early bird price of 2900€ if paid before 18 June 2018. If you are wanting to take your practice to the next stage or are interested in becoming a yoga teacher then this could be training for you. Please speak to Sandra, Jay or Katja to find out more about Jeanne and her teachings.

We look forward to seeing you at Earth Yoga very soon.

Dear Friends ,

"Remember, if you love life, nothing is worth closing over. Nothing ever is worth closing your heart over." 
From "The Untethered Soul" by Michael A Singer 

With this very simple and yet profound quote we are reminded again and again, that there is a path where we can choose and where there is always that golden moment of how we choose to react when we are met with challenges in life.
This is easier said than done ...but just as the story of the Good Wolf and the Bad Wolf where the one that wins is the one that you feed ...this applies to our hearts as well .

After a long winter even here on Mallorca with heavy rains that have now blessed our lands and nature with green lush vegetation, spring is finally here .   We are inspired to spring clean - inside and out.   There is a beauty of really clearing out closets, drawers and wash floors and surfaces in your living space . Open all the windows and use sage to clean and clear energy and invite the good in by burning palo santo. Create an altar, light a candle and bring some fresh flowers into your home.   Our bodies are longing for cleaner food and liquids and our practices become more heating and detoxing as the heat from the outside warms our bodies faster .

We are proud to have completed our second group of graduates from the last part of our advanced 300hr Tantra Flow Teacher Training with Jeanne Heilemann.  It is an honor to follow her and the students through their challenges, joys and the love and returning home through yoga. Jeanne will be returning to Earth Yoga in September where she will be hosting a 200hr Tantra Flow Teacher Training. If you are interested in advancing your yoga practice or are wanting to become a yoga teacher then this could be the training for you. For more information please visit or speak to Sandra, Katja and Jay for more details.


This April we are excited to offer our second Healing Meditation and Tibetan Sound Bowls with Jack Pescod and Sarah Livesay.   On Saturday 14 April they will guide us with their magic blend of colloidal gold, intention setting and the healing sounds of tibetan bowls. Last time was a truly amazing gathering and we had over 25 people who left with a sense of deep healing and lightness in our bodies and spirit.  To sign up for this event please email or pass by reception. It will take place from 4pm until 6pm and costs 25€

We are also happy to introduce a new healing meditation practice with Jeanne Lurie. This will take place every Friday at 10am until 11.30am in the small shala (at the same time as our vinyasa class in the main shala). Jeanne will guide you through a deep healing meditation not only for ourselves but for the healing of the world.

We have a few changes to our regular schedule at both of our studios.....

In Santa Catalina, Rebecca has decided to stop teaching her Monday evenings classes and so Brent will be taking over teaching the 6.30pm Monday class instead. This will begin on Monday 23 April. Also Frank's 7pm Thursday evening class will now be a level 2/3 class instead of All Levels. He will continue to teach an all level practice every Sunday at 6.30pm

In our Portals studio, Katja will go back to teaching a vinyasa flow yoga class on Wednesdays at 9.30am. This class is followed by Yin Yoga with Emily at 11.30am.  Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic (yang) style of Vinyasa Yoga and leaves you with a calm mind and body. We highly recommend trying a class!


We hope to see you at Earth Yoga very soon!
