Yoga Retreat with Elisa Lavera
26th- 31 st August 2018
Granada, Spiritual Magnetism.
Leave me in Granada in the middle of paradise where my soul wells with poetry
Give him an offering, my lady, for there is no greater tragedy than that of the blind man in Granada.
So goes the famous quote, allegedly said to a woman passing a beggar in the street in Granada. The beauty and truth of the phrase encapsulates everything about this majestic city. The city offers the visitor a dizzying variety of attractions, from it’s fun-filled streets (this is a large student city) to its reputation as a Flamenco hotspot, Granada offers both history and modernity. Opposite the Alhambra is the Albaycín – the old Muslim quarter of the city, and with its steep banks, winding streets and sharp turns, an air of the past still lingers here.
Our venue is near the capital of the province of the same name and the wider region holds a number of attractions. From the mystical Alpujarras mountains, to the Sierra Nevada and down to the Costa Tropical centred on Salobreña, a visitor to this province can ski in the morning, have lunch in the city, then sit on the beach in the afternoon. Not a bad claim to fame.
While on your yoga retreat, spend an evening in old town for a night out where you can experience the nightlife of Spain, nibbling tapas and get the chance to see local flamenco dancers. Stroll around the Albaycín, exploring the old Muslim quarter opposite the Alhambra and stop at the Arab tea house Abaco Te for a journey in time with a tea and sweet local pastry, 1400AD style. Afterwards head up to the Mirador San Nicolás for a spectacular view of the Alhambra and the Sierra Nevada. Visit the Cathedral and Royal Chapel – resting place of the famous Catholic kings Fernando and Isabel. Take your time to explore the province visiting the Costa Tropical for the beach. Practice a variety of Yoga styles with different instructors immersed in the peace of Spiritual Magnetism of Granada
You can relax on the beach, go to the mountains, enjoy sightseeing and practice yoga on this all encompassing yoga retreat in beautiful Granada Spain!

GUEST YOGA INSTRUCTOR
Elisa Lavera – Eliyoga
My name is Elisa and I was introduced to yoga about 6 years ago when I moved from Italy to London, UK. I would lie if I said that was love at first sight, but with time, perseverance and help from experienced teacher, I discovered and experienced yoga benefits on myself. I used to be a quite anxious person and yoga has helped me to rebalance my mind, focus on the present moment and opened a connection with my true self that I did not have before. Yoga now plays a big part in my life and my aim is to inspire more people to incorporate yoga in their life, experiencing physical and mental benefits, helping them to reconnect body, mind and soul.
Yoga for me is meditation in movement, is releasing the physical body so that Prana (energy) can flow freely creating internal awareness. I follow Vinyasa yoga principles where I create balanced sequences between standing, balancing, seating and inverted Asana (poses) while helping the students' practice offering support, assisting or adjusting. Challenging elements are always part of the class, same as relaxing and strengthening components to balance all aspects in one single session.
I am a fully qualified 200 Hour Yoga Teacher, qualification is recognised by the Yoga Alliance USA and I have been teaching privately, in group classes and corporate environment since December 2016. For more information about me head to Eliyoga or follow me on Instagram or Facebook.
Come and join me in August 2018 in Granada, Spain with LuciaYoga retreats. Here you will relax and rejuvenate, practicing yoga, eating delicious healthy food and sunbathing in the beautiful Spain.
