Yoga Retreat: Awaken Your Senses

Yoga Retreat 27th April- May 1st 2018

Nature, comfort and Yoga in Southern Spain, Andalucia

Give yourself the gift of wellbeing in our awaken your senses yoga retreat where the Parque Natural Sierra de Grazalema rises from quiet rural byways like an apparition, the natural world takes over. Great buttresses of rock silhouetted against the clouds soar above a forested landscape tinged with green even when the rest of Andalucía turns yellow under a baking summer sun. A Unesco Biosphere reserve since 1977, according to BBC Travel, the best place to hike in Andalucia.

Two whitewashed villages serve as gateways to our yoga retreat center. Zahara de la Sierra is one of Andalucía's most striking villages, sashaying up a craggy, castletopped peak in the park's northern reaches. And El Gastor,also known as the Balcony of the Andalusian White Villages, its narrow passes connecting the villages lead over high mountain passes, drawing near to some of Spain's prettiest mountain scenery.

Enjoy beautiful accommodation surrounded by nature. Cool off after a yoga practice or workshop at our five outdoor pools with views of the sierra. Fresh vegetarian meals will be cooked for you daily. You can savour local organic produce in delicious Mediterranean dishes. You will practice a variety of Yoga styles with with Daniela and Raquel immersed in the peace of nature.

If you are looking for a yoga retreat on the mountains and have time to connect with your inner self, this is the place for you!

AWAKEN YOUR SENSES

We tend to disconnect from our nature by carrying unnecessary tension and stress. We use more energy than we need for simple tasks and overuse our brains to rationalise our way through challenges, rather than drawing attention inwards and trusting our gut to achieve results and move through challenges with ease. Yoga is more than a movement practice, it is a philosophy that provides endless opportunities for reconnecting with the self. Our goal is to guide you through a journey of exploration to enable you to slow down, soften, breathe deep and move naturally to accomplish more with less effort. This approach will enhance not only your yoga practice but your daily life, habits, career, relationships and longevity. Let’s take our yoga practice beyond our mats!
