Hello! We are Laura and Diego, life partners and founders of Inspira Yoga Holidays and Yoga Retreats project.
The project was born because we feel that there is a great need to disconnect from the cities, from noise, from external stimuli, and connect again with simple things, with nature, with the body, with people, with high vibrations. We feel that many people need quality time, to dedicate it to themselves and share it with others.
So we got down to work to shape our dream: to design conscious holidays proposals, to enjoy ourselves, to do yoga and meditation, to rest, to breathe, to be in nature, to meet new people, to eat healthy… to find the well-being, the calmness and the necessary connection to come back home with charged batteries, with another attitude and a different brightness…

How are our holidays and yoga retreats like?
This is what you will find in our vacations and yoga retreats:
Yoga is our lifestyle. We are yoga lovers and believe in yoga as an ancestral method of physical, mental and emotional exploration. To live life fully, more opened, joyful, healthy… the list of benefits is so long…
We practice different yoga styles. In the morning we wake up with Hatha Vinyasa Yoga, dynamic and fluid yoga style where we connect the breath with movement and cultivate strength, flexibility, coordination, balance and physical integrity. It is a demanding yoga that combines perfectly with the evening practice, more gentle and meditative.
Yin yoga is a passive yoga that seeks to relax and stretch the tissues, create space and unlock energies. Subtle yoga has an energetic approach that awakens consciousness in the chakras and in union with the whole. Restorative yoga allows us to rest, release and renew physically and mentally. Yoga in pairs brings us closer to ourselves from the connection with the partner.
We also offer different workshops to deepen your practice: asana techniques (standing postures, backbendings, forward bendings, inverted postures…), breathing workshop, deep relaxation workshop, Sun Salutations workshop, asana attitude workshop, etc…
The yoga we offer is suitable for all levels and conditions. New practitioners can find the necessary impulse to introduce the habit into their daily life (we would love it!); Occasional practitioners will face the challenge and pleasure of daily practice; the everyday yogis will be able to continue their daily routine also in their vacations, integrating new experiences in their path of personal growth.
Silence is essential to achieve a state of consciousness, relaxation and inner peace. We meditate fundamentally on the breath, the body sensations and with visualizations and mental projections. The meditations are guided and can be in a sitting, lying or moving position. Before or after yoga practice, on the mat or outdoors, watching the sunrise or sunset, or walking through the forest. We use different mindful group dynamics.
Stepping the land with bare feet, taking a bath in the sea, feeling the sun and the breeze on the skin, smelling the flowers, listening to the birds, contemplating the beauty of a sunrise or a sunset… to be in contact with nature is healing and restorative, it is pure food for the senses and for the soul. For our retreats we choose destinations in the middle of nature, close to the sea or to the mountains, natural parks, magical and quiet places to go for a walk, make excursions or simply read a good book in a hammock under a tree.
This year we are going to Cabo de Gata (Almería) in Christmas, to la Garrotxa natural park (Girona, Catalonia) at Easter, to Ibiza in July, to Menorca in August, to Sierra de Gredos (Ávila) in October and to Hostalric (Girona, Catalonia) in Desember.
One of the things that make us feel so good in yoga retreats is the food. Eating healthy helps us to detoxify the body and to strengthen our yoga and meditation practice. The body feels lighter and the mind clearer. Our cuisine is based on a vegetarian diet, nutritious, tasty and creative, cooked with seasonal foods and, whenever possible, organic and local. The result are careful and delicious dishes, rich in colours, flavours and textures, which will surprise both vegetarians and omnivores.
In our retreats we put all our heart to make you feel at home and as one more of a small big family. We share intense moments, practice and leisure time, talks and silences, hugs and complicity… and lots of laughs! It is amazing to see how people become friends and in many cases they continue the relation after the retreat. Joy and good mood, closeness, family atmosphere, healthy, inspiring and funny.
Groups are not too big because we want everyone to feel well cared in their particular needs.
We also like to choose accommodations with good energy and with all the services and amenities to everybody feel very comfortable. Without great luxuries, but with everything you need to live a comfortable and careful experience. The rooms are shared with few people (most of the time only two people) and without bunk beds. When possible, with a bathroom in the same room. The yoga rooms are spacious and bright. The shared areas and gardens are cozy and quiet.
We want your vacations to be an unforgettable experience. They could become one of the most wonderful and rewarding experiences of your life.
Are you in?
With love, gratitude and dedication,
Laura & Diego
“I go to nature to find calm and healing, and put my senses back in tune.” John Burroughs
One autumn day the universe decided to join the ways of a city girl and a village boy, a yoga lover and a kitchen artist, two free and awakened souls with the same vision: offering quality time to people during their vacations and free time, to practice yoga, meditate, breathe, relax, stay in nature and share the experience with new people.
Laura is a Vinyasa and Yin Yoga instructor, formed in Barcelona and India, certified IYF and Yoga Alliance, and based in Ibiza. She teaches fluid and rhythmic classes, energetic and intense, soft and loving, suggesting sequences which prepare the body to enter into a deep connection between breath and movement, between body and mind. She encourages each one to explore her own potential and rediscover strength, flexibility, space and inner balance. Laura guides all yoga and meditation activities.
Diego studied Hotel Management at the “Escuela de Hostelería de Aragón”. He is not involved in professional cooking, but as a passion. Diego will delight our stomachs and souls with his creative dishes of original shapes, colors and flavors. Vegetarian and delicious food, made and served with the most important ingredient, love.
We both bring our knowledge and passions with humility, dedication and much love.

“I attended the Christmas Retreat 2018 with Laura and Diego, and the experience was wonderful from beginning to end. The place, the group, the classes, the food, the activities, everything helped to spend a few days very relaxing so I could clear my mind completely. Laura’s classes are a gift for the body and for the soul; In a sweet and soft way, she guides you to advanced positions, always respecting the limits of each one. Both morning and afternoon classes left me with a sweet feeling of fullness, a delight. And what to say about the banquets Diego made? A pleasure for the senses and the palate, the dishes were a delight for the eyes. I am intolerant to gluten, and Diego always had the delicacy of making a gluten-free version, thus increasing his workload, already immense, because we were a large group. My deepest gratitude for it, Diego! Both put a great love in what they do, and it shows in the details, and in the magic that was created in the group from the beginning. Thank you very much for your work, we will meet again without any doubt!” Laura, Madrid (Cabo de Gata January 2018)
