Desert Spirit

Desert is a sacred space where you can quiet the mind and explore the depth of the soul.


Ezuz is hidden in a dry river mouth, one of the strongest desert landscapes in Israël.

The perfect place to find peace, deepen your spiritual practice and heal your body, mind and soul.

 We will lead you gently, cleansing old energies and nurturing renewed energies.

 6 full days of practicing yoga, experiencing music, walking and sitting,

sharing meals and gathering around the fire at night  in a deeply bonding experience under the desert sun and moon. 

The soundscape of the desert,  the space, the remoteness, the silence and the music will enhance your experience and focus.

  • TESTIMONIALS

    “There are journeys which take us far without us having to venture a single step. Once in the land of Israel and, even more so, in the desert, Sandra and Yotam invited us to make a delicate start to our journey to ourselves, a journey accompanied by others. Their faith in the global practice they propose is contagious. In a simple way. The force imparted by a smile exchanged in silence; our fellow travellers’ confidence restored as we cross the desert on foot; the listening to a, sometimes hostile nature in the winter cold, which yet gives us strength; intimations of familiarity with a native land that Yotam knows so well; the stories told transporting us into an oriental tale; the serious of the practice and the euphoria of the wellbeing. Both of them open up to us, with their generosity, their imagination, their good taste and their delicacy. And one only has to let oneself be swept up in this journey, at once entirely theirs and unlike any other. Initially, the experience is collective, for it commits us to focusing our attention on the details of things, of people. And so, the personal experience is even more spellbinding. Yoga is more than merely the physical effort involved in the practice; it gives us a feeling of complete regeneration. There was laughter, great running across the dunes, marvelously intimate discussions, and yoga in places of great serenity. Emotions sincerely mirrored head-to-heads with oneself, confrontations with one’s own limits. Nothing was neutral. In this space of retreat, we lived moments of great richness. We take all that away with us so that we can grow a little more. Thank you Sandra. Thank you Yotam. Thank you Rony.”

    “What a powerful experience, that goes way beyond travelling ! A real journey from the inside revealed thanks to a kicking crew of yoghis, as professional as spiritual, who embodies the genuine desert spirit… Perfect combo that made me feel more whole on-site and upon my way back… A real blessing, even better that what I expected ! Looking forward to the next Dogood retreat, I ll follow eyes wide shut ! Namaste / toda raba from the deepest of my heart + soul”
    Géraldine Giraud / France

    “Amazing adventure to live one week in the desert & to live every moment as a unique one;
    the 2 main words which summarize well our retreat are simplicity and sharing
    Sandra & Yotam made our daily life easier in discreet ways and Roni is a wonderful yoga teacher sharing her experience with caring and kindness.
    No judgement, no competition, just accepting us the way we are.
    I have really appreciated the mix between yoga, meditation and walks in the desert. Last but not least, this is a great & magical way to finish a year and to start another one !
    And even if the weather was cold, it was a fantastic experience which I will renew with pleasure (maybe in another place as I like discovering new places)
    Thanks again Sandra for your delicious Stollen and for your massages, thanks Yotam for your music, your yoga & meditation classes, and thanks both of you for this week.”
    Valérie Rasson / France

    “Stunning, absolutely breathtaking places.
    Gorgeous food, wonderful people…
    Kind yoga practice, taking you softly to your inner soul, to the others strength, to a pure serenity …
    Yotam and Sandra gently taking care of you all the way.
    Roni, giving you enthusiastically way to the origins and meaning of yoga
    Just do it !”
