To my person: My name is Kiki Trenew. I am practising Yoga since more than 17 years – nearly every day – and it changed my life. To understand Yoga you have to practise regular. With increasing practise your power, confidence & well-being will grow slowly. Your view will go to the inside and this will make a change in your life. Everybody can practise my Yoga whatever age or physical condition. The adaption of the Yoga postures to every single student is very important for me as we all have different bodies. I mix Ayur Yoga, Yin Yoga & Vinyasa Flow Yoga – the basic you will find in Hatha Yoga. Every class can be different as i always work in needs of my students. Come along and try out and learn to boost & stretch in a healthy way.
Wishing you all a wonderful week
light & love Kiki

Vetiver Spain of Sayalonga:
We have potted Vetiver of different sizes and also in trays of multiple plants that we have grown in our greenhouses for sale. They are more mature plants which will establish quickly in colder climates. They are for pick up only due to their weight. We also have the normal slips available as usual. We can easily ship those if needed.
Check out our new addition of “Buttons” on our home page. They have information on planting, best time to plant, A “Vetiver Introduction Letter” with a load of information and of course more photos and videos related to the use of Vetiver.
The best time to plant Vetiver is between now and the end of March. This way the plant gets the benefit of a long hot summer. Remember that Vetiver is indigenous to India and loves the heat. Vetiver can be planted all summer long.
We are also taking orders for Moringa Trees that we have been growing in the greenhouses. There is a limited supply so place your orders soon. There is also a “Buttons” that will take you directly to the Moringa page or the Lemon Grass page with a lot of useful information. We have put together this information to make it easier for you to research.

Van Service: I recently used C & A Euro Van Service to transport a large number of boxed items from the campo just outside Canillas de Aceituno back to Kent. Both Cathy and Allen were extremely helpful and everything was collected and delivered as arranged and on time. It was a pleasure to do business with them and I can thoroughly recommend them.
