🏠  Property of the week 
Mallorca has many great, new developments. We love this turnkey townhouse with a swimming pool & an amazing terrace with spectacular views of the church and the village Ses Salines.

The design of the house has prioritised space and the entry of light, with large windows that favour visual continuity between the interior space and the private south-facing courtyard.

Make sure to check it out! You don't want to miss viewing the amazing courtyard with the pool.

As much as Luke & I loves the features of old fincas we really like the new developments as well. They are so well thought out regarding spacing, light, heating systems. Thats why we love working with Fantastic Frank! They really have an eye for finding the best of both worlds.
In partnership with Fantastic Frank.
🎤  7 questions with David Lee Lurey, founder of Find Balance
Tell us a bit about yourself and what you do: I am American born with Mediterranean roots on one half and Eastern European on the other half. I have lived on Mallorca for 14 years having been invited for work and stayed for love. I have been a full time Yoga teacher and musician since 2000 with many global experiences from leading teacher trainings, retreats and workshops to presenting at some of Europe’s biggest Yoga conferences & festivals.
In 2017, I started to shift away from classical Yoga towards more functional movement and I include lots of styles & modalities in what I teach. Musically, I focus on Mantras and heart songs and I also love to grab the guitar for a jam session of Dylan, Paul Simon, Pearl Jam and beyond.In the last 4 years, my attention has moved towards permaculture, regenerative agriculture and growing food here on Mallorca. In the last few years, I also co-organize @ecstaticdancemallorca hosting monthly dances with no shoes, no talking, no alcohol or drugs and amazing eclectic electronic music.

Instagram worth following: 
  • @mirjamwagneryin - a wonderful Yoga teacher and inspiration (and my beloved wife)
  • @adamguerrero - Mallorca based singer / songwriter who shares incredible original music
  • @danielsonicrojas - Movement specialist recently relocated to the island.  I train with him often and feel huge expansion in many aspects of my practices
  • @paulstamets  - the magical world of Mushrooms & Mycilium
  • @denischerim - Madrid based photographer capturing ‘Coincidental Moments’

Favourite place to swim: I am a creature of habit and fell in love with Es Trenc when I first arrived to the island, so I still love that walk towards the beach and to the sea.  We go early in the morning to get parking and usually leave by 12-13h when the wind picks up or sun gets strong.  Living in Establiments, I also love the convenience of Illetas, following the same rhythm; early arrival / early departure.

A place worth eating at: Once again, as a creature of habit, I don’t stray too far from what I know and love.  

I am omnivorous in my eating habits so I know these require a broader spectrum of diet, but for those who ‘eat it all’… these places are great!

Who is making a product we should know about: 
  • @CircleCarbonlabs makes BioChar that has literally supported the recovery of many trees on our land.
  • @juan_a_canaves makes essential oils and leads tours to learn about Mallorca’s natural plants
  • @blissfulbastards has a few flavors of ’Nutoria’ that keep my sweet tooth and snaking habits satisfied
  • Cereria Candela,  Sylvia’s home made candles make our home smell incredible and other ones keep the mosquitos away! 
Best month of the year on Mallorca: October - The heat has subsided, hopefully the Gota Fria has kissed the dry Earth with her wet rain.  The sea is still warm and there comes a perfect temperature for planting Autumn/Winter vegetables and garden projects.

What is one other secret/great tip about Mallorca that you'd like to share with our readers: For those who love to dance but don’t love the ambience of clubs, our Ecstatic Dance Mallorca community is a great refuge.  In the summer, we host dances on Friday evenings that usually start with a singing circle.  In the Winter months, we host our events on Saturday mornings.  The music is always a wide range of upbeat, downtempo, groovy and sometimes sentimental.  The no talking part makes it a personal journey and hopefully allows everyone to make it their own experience.

And finally, I have made ‘friends’ with some very kind hearted people around Palma and beyond.  I had to adapt to a more Spanish way of interacting at the supermarket, hardware store, gasolinera, etc...; more than just ‘Hello / Good Bye.’  And in taking those few extra minutes to ask about people, to listen to them and to really hear them I have learned a great deal more of Castellano and more importantly, built bridges between humans who come from different lives.  Most Mallorquines I know appreciate that extra touch of engaging on a personal level and it has built a beautiful network of kind souls all living on this special island.
