La Sirena started with organizing and hosting yoga and spiritual retreats in her adopted home of Ecuador, and has now grown to include a Holistic Centre offering Reiki, aromatherapy, natural health products and spa services, a yoga sangha with regular classes, Agnihotra Ayurvedic fires, and spiritual, health and wellness courses and seminars.
La Sirena is a Canadian/Brit expat who has now lived in Ecuador for over 7 years, completely integrated and bilingual. La Sirena retreats use family owned and run businesses, not multi-national corporate locations, in order to support the local economies of Ecuador and give visitors an honest view of the real Ecuador. Retreats are planned to give participants as much time in nature as possible. La Sirena is with the group from airport pick up to airport drop off, acting as host and translator. Group sizes range from 6 to 12 participants.
