Nuria & Tahona
Founders of Mallorca Holistic
It is with great passion, a lot of courage and… a hint of naivety too, that these two health and self-development professionals, created in 2016 a space for people to get back “home” to their bodies, their healing potential and their self-empowerment. Also, a safe space to face their own fears and their own pains and move pass them. A place to reconnect and become real again.
your bodywork practitioner & AWARENESS GUIDE
Body awareness is the core of your retreat, whatever the theme and the specific program. Tahona is there to help you, through different tools (including touch, breathing and exercises), get back into your body and awaken its unique intelligence.
She is one of the founders of Mallorca Holistic and continues to be a core guide in your experience with us, on many levels.
After 4 years of studies and a radical life change, coming from the translation world in the International Organizations, Tahona obtained in Switzerland her International Diploma on a somatic coaching approach which teaches body awareness and reconnection to one-self through the body, in order to achieve well-being and health: the Grinberg Method.
She has worked as an independent practitioner since 2010 in several locations and is continuously learning in self-development process and numerous international courses.
Tahona continues touching people’s lives in groups workshops and one-on-one sessions at her clinic in Palma de Mallorca and during Yoga and Holistic Retreats and other events in different locations.

Cecilia Gené - the magic cook
Cecilia has a very special gift for simplicity and authenticity in her way of cooking and dealing with foods. She has a naturally holistic approach when it comes to nourishing the body and the soul with what nature brings to us. She’s been part of the team since the very beginning and now we can say upfront that her food is sublime, elegant and full of love.
She is a Flexitarian cook. Flexitarianism is a food trend consisting on being vegetarian but in a flexible way. It's based on a diet with in-season vegetables, but without giving up healthy animal products occasionally.
"As a result of various personal growth experiences, I immersed myself in research on nutrition and how it directly affects our balance, on which our health depends.
At the moment I am student of dietetics and nutrition with an organic approach and I am adding to my technical and creative knowledge other abilities acquired in diverse fields, that merge in the kitchen to obtain that balance through nutrition.
My cooking is simple and colorful. I use local, organic and seasonal foods, which results in energizing, natural, flexible and personalized meals."

RITA RÜTSCHE - yoga & mlc TEACHER & Grinberg method practitioner
Rita has been learning and teaching about self-development, physical recovery and well-being for more than 20 years now. Our participants had a unique chance to experience, not only her transformative touch, but also her group teachings, most remarkably, the MLC sessions that were a mind blowing discovery for many.
"The practice of the various branches of yoga and my activity as a yoga teacher formed the basic ground of my work with the body and all it’s aspects. The Grinberg Method made me conscious of the fact that humans are in a continuous learning process and gave me a perfectly structured way of approaching the body.
Hsin Tao and with its thousand-year-old exercises taught me in a subtle way to perfectly let go of unnecessary efforts. Finally MLC allows me to decode further the multiple messages of the body, takes me to profound relaxation and contributes to always more subtlety and precision in my touch during the sessions with my clients."
She is the author of a workshop on improving self-expression called "Free, fresh and spontaneous" and a booklet on stress management in daily life, "Serene under pressure".
