Sabina and Juan founded Yoga and Sound in 2015:
"We are passionate about sharing the paths that transformed our lives: the wisdoms we absorb through our travels through the Himalayas, the Andes and the Amazon. For the past 4 years we have been taking people on retreats to celebrate life in nature and in community, to sing and dance, to connect with the spirit of the Earth and with our true essence.
Our mission in Yoga and Sound is to share transformation tools to remember that our true nature is of harmony, presence and satisfaction, with whatever life brings us as learning. We offer a unique combination of retreats using the practice of asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra, kirtan with the sound of ancient and traditional ethnic instruments and songs, and music medicine, as a vibrational therapy to expand consciousness and connect to Mother Earth and to the Great Spirit.
