Hello, I'm Helen Davenport, the owner and hostess of Yoga Chicas. I have been in education for most of my professional career.
I came late to yoga after travelling to an eco ashram in Mysore India in 2016. There I met some beautiful and inspiring people who glowed with their passion and healthy bodies and minds.
It was only a natural thing for me to take 200hr yoga teacher training so I could get a better understanding of all its benefits.
I had suffered from various anti-inflammatory diseases for several years and was on a search to calm my body and my mind. I knew from the internet what my problems were....but I knew I needed to connect with people rather than computers to resolve them.
We need people, preferably inspiring people!
So once I started to see great results physically and mentally (particularly helpful for me has been a consistent meditation practice), I decided to set up a yoga holiday haven on the island of Ibiza. Bringing in some lovely intuitive yoga teachers who love to get to know their students and interact with them.
Ibiza is a magical island, a jewel in the Mediterranean that has it all.
Stunning white beaches, amazing flora and fauna, sun-filled days, shopping, fashion, rustic villages, super fresh food, boating, crystal waters and a hot night life.
And now I have added a yoga deck we are ready to welcome the world to experience this inspiring location and help you to find the solutions you are seeking.
