ABOUT CARLA BLISS

Yoga helped her find herself, get the strength to leave what was not bringing happiness and to start from scratch. She was 29 years old when she decided to change her life. She left everything for what she felt was her path: yoga. She travelled to Rishikesh for a yoga teacher training and spent two months in India nourishing her soul. She returned with a full heart to create Yoga House Mallorca with her mother, confirming that her mission was to expand yoga so that others could heal with the same tools she had acquired. She has opened many hearts and dozens of people have changed their paths inspired by Carla.

A NEW LIGHT 

A retreat to discover, integrate and manifest your new light

We are light. Sometimes our light shines brightly and sometimes it is dim and even comes with a darkness that can almost extinguish it. We have spent an intense astrological year, working with our shadows, discovering wounds and changing old patterns, now say yes to life! Sometimes you just need to do what you haven't done before, something different, get out of the routine, step out of your comfort zone, meet new people, visit unknown places and allow yourself to activate the spark inside you again. That spark that ignites the flame of life within your heart, only then you can manifest your new light.
