Yoga Retreat with Amy Moir
23 -28 August 2019
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!

The seed of yoga was planted early in her teen years by Amy’s Mother. Her Mother considering it an appropriate life skill to help Amy through the stress and pressure that come at that age. The yoga seed slowly grew to fruition, and as she continued to practice, Amy began to find a place of inner peace and self-confidence that she felt compelled to share.
Being a Primary school teacher, it was natural that she began to share her yogic knowledge with her pupils. Amy’s pupils enjoyed her fun and dynamic kids yoga classes which combined the medium of storytelling with mindfulness techniques and yoga poses. Amy believes in bringing out every child’s unique character and in her Kid’s Yoga classes she aims to create a safe and harmonious environment for children to share and grow together.
Amy felt compelled to understand more of the deep science of Yoga and on a trip to India she finally completed 500 hrs. yoga training with Guru Mahi of ‘Mahi Yoga’. This was a trip that would change her life and after completion of the course she returned to the U.K. ready to change profession and lifestyle.
Amy has taught hot Vinyasa flow yoga for the British fitness franchise ‘Hot Pod Yoga’. As well as holding her own Hatha Yoga classes and private Yoga sessions. In 2017 under Mahi’s careful guidance she began the transition to yoga trainer. Guiding new yogis on their journey to Yoga Teacher in the international setting.
Amy is known for her intuitive instruction; combining both subtle and physical guidance for her students to experience the holistic benefits of a yoga practice.
