Meet the Team
Sun Salute Retreats comes from the combination of two passions: yoga and traveling.
Amanda has many years experience teaching yoga in the United States and now in Europe, she combines her passion for teaching yoga with her love to travel and discover new destinations and meet new people.
She has organized yoga retreats around the world since 2004 and always with a personal and exclusive touch that make her trips unforgettable to her students and companions. Her intention has always been to create unique feelings in incredible places, usually far from the known tourist destinations of yoga.
After more than 10 years organizing her own retreats she began to collaborate with other yoga teachers who, attracted by the diversity of destinations that she offered, asked her to collaborate in the production and organization of their events and retreats.
Unai is an adept problem solver and logistics guru. After spending 10+ years as a commercial lawyer, he longed for a more creative and emotionally fulfilling career. His background in law and mediation provide him with the analytical skill set needed to proactively solve problems and find alternative solutions for any situation that may arise during a retreat. His skills for solving all types of conflicts enables him to guide and advise both teachers and students well. The pedigree he acquired in the corporate world allows him to hone in on his ability to be a well though organizer and reliable retreat leader, business manager and marketing advisor.
The production of a yoga retreat involves a number of arrangements, calls, emails, drafting of legal documents, supervision of quality standards and the participation of numerous elements that contribute to make the retreat a unique experience.
SUN SALUTE RETREATS produces retreats and yoga events, leaving time for the teacher to teach and enjoy, plus giving them time to be with their students, instead of their time being taken up by all the other organization aspects of creating/leading a retreat.
We create customized yoga events and retreats in unique and exclusive places
