Mapi was an Actress and director having lived in many different countries where she experienced different cuttures and societies. These travels provided her the opportunity to see and partake in alternative life techniques. The awakening and the beginning of her spiritual life occurred 20 years ago, when she heard, “for the first time”, the word HARMONY, and something resonated deep inside her.
Her first yoga master, for three years, was KhrisnaKant Pattel, brought up in the Sri Aurovindo Monastery also known as Auroville, outside of Pondicherry.: KhrisnaKant Pattel is a marvelous human being who emanates a great peace around him. After that, she continued her studies at Shivananda centers in Paris, London, Los Angeles, and Madrid. In 1995 she studied with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in Los Angeles, studying and practicing Pranayama techniques. She received her Mastery of Reiki and started using it professionally in Santa Barbara (California) in 2001. In 2005 she received her teacher training certificate in the techniques of Shivananda at the International Hatha Yoga Center in Trivandrum (Kerala – India).
Of an autodidact nature, she continues to participate in courses and retreats in yoga, meditation and alternative practices of self discovery and healing. In December of 2014 Mapi went to Thailand where she spent one week in a monsetery doing meditation, and studying Thai massage in a small village in northern Thailand. A fan of harmony and well-being, she continues to study and learns day after day from the great master: Life itself! And Life goes on…

It was in Barcelona where I trained in energtic and emotional nutrition with Montse Bradford. This is where I integrated and experimented with different foods. This helped in achieving a healthier, more physically fit, and mentally/emotionally stronger person…. The visible body is a clear reflection of what is happening on the inside. It is vital to pamper and love your body. Feeding your body natural and organic food will help stabalize emotional states of beings and helps purify the blood.
Other skills is my use of Thai massage which helps to align the emotional, mental and physical properties of the body. I trained in Lahu Village in northern Thailand. Thai massage is an ancient technique and related to yoga (we could call it yoga massage) and meditation. It penetrates to a deeper level restoring energy levels. Thai massage was always considered a spiritual practice associaated with the teachings of Buddha.
I have a blog about food awareness, meditation techniques and yoga, for anyone interested in educated themselves about these topics-helping to connect with life.

Nacho Novoa – Bio
Desde los 10 años ya comenzaba a interesarme la gastronomía sin creer que aquello fuera mi futuro ya que todas mis influencias
hablaban de medicina en la mesa.
A mi madre le apasiona la cocina tanto como a mí y no dudé en decirle a los 17 años que seguiría ese camino y que mi idea era viajar y trabajar por el mundo aprendiendo y viviendo.
Fue a mis 18 años que comencé con estudios de cocina, barman, eventos, al mismo tiempo que tenía mis privilegiadas experiencias laborales en la materia. A los 24 años tuve la posibilidad de viajar a España, donde comencé a trabajar en cocina bio-saludable a la cual me dediqué por voluntad propia. Trabajé en varios restaurantes populares en Ibiza de comida saludable, esta experiencia junto a “Depura” me abrieron una gran puerta llena de felicidad.
Hace ya 4 años que recorro este camino de cocina consciente y saludable aprendiendo a diario de sus infinitos ingredientes y posibilidades de creación, abriendo las puertas a todo el mundo a probar exquisitos y equilibrados sabores que seguro eran difíciles de imaginar.
Following a career in health, fitness, personal training, bodywork, massage, coaching, lecturing and nutrition, Bear has now joined the team at Depura Ibiza.

I feel very fortunate to be able to collaborate in this beautiful project, surrounded by exceptional people in this wonderful environment. And above all, I love taking care of customers from the first contact with us and helping them to live this unforgettable experience.
