Polop is a lovely town, perched on the mountainside, it's located inland but is very close to Benidorm.

The villa is quiet and offers a lot of privacy while being only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Polop and its amenities (supermarkets, shops, a medical centre, a pharmacy, etc.). Its location is absolutely perfect for a relaxing Yoga Retreat. Many natural routes for hiking are accessible from the villa.

Info & Registration
My name is Elise Rousse, I’m from Belgium, but I’ve lived in many places across the world. I am a Yoga Teacher, a Well-Being Coach, an Ayurvedic Consultant for lifestyle and nutrition, and Ayurvedic Masseur.
For many years I had a difficult relationship with food, tremendously struggled with body image and self-esteem, and I couldn’t really live at peace with myself and others. My journey to health and well-being started with the plant-based diet which helped me find a sustainable and healthy way of eating after years of junk food, and diet after diet. After healing my body, I found Yoga to heal my mind and soul. Ayurveda came to me a little later as the latest piece of my healing process. Ayurveda is a science of self-healing, the sister science of yoga, it is the ancient Indian art of living a more healthy, wholesome life, through our diets, our routines, and lifestyle practices.
My authentic desire to help you meet your Best Self, to live a more authentic & purer version of yourself and to find balance in your body and mind. Through my well-being coaching sessions, Yoga classes or Ayurvedic Consultations, I empower you to improve your well-being through small, sustainable, healthy diet & lifestyle changes.
And of course, I'm also a teacher Yoga, I give Ayurvedic cooking classes and workshops, and I give Ayurvedic massage trainings as well. And I have fallen in love with Sound Therapy and my beautiful sacred instruments. And with all of this, I have created a healing path, for you and for me.
You can listen to my interview podcast with Fit For Joy in 2020 to learn more about Yoga, Ayurveda and a bit more about me as well.
