Arlèna is originally from New York who has made her home in Arizona. She is a certified Yoga Instructor having trained at the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre at Nassau in the Bahamas. She is certified with the worldwide organization, Yoga Alliance as an instructor and brings traditional Hatha Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation classes to each of her tours. Arlèna also holds certification for Boomer/Senior Yoga Training which is specifically geared for the Baby Boomer and Senior population.

Arlèna fell in love with Spain and the Camino when she went to Spain to make her first pilgrimage in 2012. She was inspired by the warmth of the Spanish people, the beauty of the terrain, the history of the Camino itself and delighted by the regional cuisines and wines. Since 2012, she has walked a total of 14 pilgrimage route on the Camino de Santiago. 

She continues to enjoy walking but has turned her attention and business focus to Yoga Retreats. Although we continue to offer self-guided pilgrimages and other walking tours in Europe, Arlèna no longer guides these tours herself.
