Mountain & Beach Pilates, Yoga & Wellbeing Retreat
19th- 23rd April 2018 on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea
Sierra de las Nieves and Costa del sol lies at the shores of the Mediterranean Sea
Wild and brooding mountains, dotted with whitewashed villages evocative of orange blossoms; the fertile lands of Andalucia remain suspended between the sea and stars. Set in the beautiful Sierra de las Nieves in Andalucia, Spain, it’s a hidden gem.
The venue connects the Costa del Sol to the beautiful countryside. Its capital is the city of Malaga, the birthplace of painter Pablo Picasso. The province lies on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, and has 160 km of coastline with a multitude of beaches and marinas. Its Caminito del Rey (King’s Little Path) is built onto the side of the limestone rock face, offering spectacular, heart-stopping views down a sheer drop to the churning waters. Our Malaga yoga retreat centre is situated in an accessible location near the beach, the city and the airport of Malaga.
Although there is a full Yoga, mountain and beach activities programme that addresses our guests’ physical needs, a further aim of our wellbeing retreat is to allow you time for personal reflection, self-understanding and your ongoing personal development through our holistic approach. We offer lifestyle solutions that will leave guests renewed and re-inspired.
Spend few days with us to take your practice to a new level

ABOUT THE TEACHERS
Jackie has been in the fitness industry for over 20 years. At school she enjoyed sports and ran for school and county in 800m and cross country. After leaving school there was a massive gap in her life so in 1998 she attended Morley College in London and gained her Exercise to Music qualification. Then moved to Milton Keynes where her studio career began; she gained many studio qualifications and enjoyed teaching Body Pump, Body Balance, Schwinn indoor cycling to name but a few.
In 2000 Jackie took on the role of studio coordinator for Esporta which eventually got bought out by Virgin Active. Her life was pretty hectic teaching 20 classes a week and running 3 studios. After attending many classes doing circuits he happened to join in with a yoga session. Loved it and never looked back. In 2003 she qualified in intermediate yoga followed by Hatha yoga through the British School of Yoga. Slowly swopped half my teaching classes to yoga or body balance style classes she then went on to qualify in Pilates in 2008 through the British School of Yoga. She was very fortunate to have a Pilates and yoga studio for her use and this allowed her to hold and attend many workshops and training courses in different styles of yoga and Pilates.
Through the years Jackie also enjoyed the mechanics of the body and importance of correct alignment and did anatomy and psychology many times 2002 when she gained her Massage, Anatomy and Physiology diploma at Dunstable College. Then in 2009 when she did Access to Health Level 3 at Milton Keynes College where she completed Biology, Psychology, and Sociology all at level 3.
Jackie is also on her yoga journey and enjoys attending other classes, retreats and workshops and feels you can never know enough about yoga. This year alone she has been on 2 retreats with Lucia Yoga in Spain, attended 5 workshops of ”Yogic Living” with Jason Searing, to “Meditation, Yin Yoga and Beautiful Back Bends” with Melanie Cooper. She enjoys the diversity of yoga and all the many styles and teachings. Jackie is also a senior teacher for ”Yoga Alliance” and has over 6000 yoga teaching hours under her belt, member no #7032
She is truly grateful to be able to teach and share with others that what has inspired her so much over the last 20 years. She loves seeing positive and uplifting changes within her students. She also loves helping those with depression & anxiety, and joint & back problems to feel stronger and able to cope through their yoga practice, it is truly magical.
It was 2011 when Viktoriya’s yoga journey began, when she started her corporate marketing career at Microsoft. Experiencing the demanding corporate world which added to her stress dramatically, the l-o-n-g working hours, developing back pain, facing sleepless nights - she discovered the world of yoga.
Immediately enamoured by this ancient practice she found peace & clarity for the mind, deeper work for the body and harmony for the soul. Since then she practiced a number of styles such as Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Restorative and Aero Yoga. Inspired by teachers Viktoriya completed her 200 hrs teacher training with course leader Rahul Masrani, from Yoga London in March 2017. Curious by nature, eager to learn from the endless stream of yoga and always a student in life first, she has attended workshops with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Tao Porchon-Lynch , Kim Eng and Rupert Spira amongst others.
Viktoriya’s classes aspire to empower yoga students at every level, to discover and tune in with their own confidence, strength and ability to self-heal through yoga. Her classes are designed to connect the body, mind and soul, through powerful meditation, energising pranayama and gentle yet strong asana. To her, yoga is all about connection, from the hand to the mat, the mat to the body, body to mind, mind to the world. Connecting with everyone around us and taking a journey within creating space, creating joy and creating a bond with our true selves in the present moment.
