About This Yoga School
Purple Valley Tenerife location is the creation of Denis Devaris, a Swiss architect who came to Tenerife 44 years ago. Denis envisioned a retreat where likeminded people could exchange experiences and ideas through workshops and seminars. Today it has evolved into an ecological retreat centre.
Situated only 15 mins from the coastline, the centre is open to all those who are looking for peace, nature, and good weather. The peaceful retreat centre features a beautiful garden, comfortable living areas and relaxing therapy rooms. It’s been designed using a blend of ecological principles and creative architecture with simple, cosy comfort and natural wellbeing.
From day one of its opening, the aim has been to create a supportive environment for the development of a spiritual awakening. The essence of the centre is based on the absence of dogmatism and sectarianism, and the respect of personal freedom, individuality and integrity of each person.
