Lucia Yoga Retreat with Anina Rieger
1 - 6 APRIL 2018
Nature, comfort and Yoga in Southern Spain, Andalucia
Give yourself the gift of wellbeing in our nature and hiking 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 hike in the mountains 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 different instructors immersed in the peace of nature.
If you´re looking for a mountain and yoga vacation, this is the place for you!

GUEST YOGA INSTRUCTOR
Spain / Germany. Hello, my name is Anina and I‘m a passionate Yoga teacher of a style that I mix depending on the level and daily mood of my students. I learned in the International Integral Yoga school in Lisbon/ Portugal and the beginners base for my students is Integral Hatha Yoga mixed up with my favourite styles Dynamic Vinyasa and Ashtanga Yoga.
I focus on adapting Yoga for every student and not the other way around, thats why I participated 2016 in a Yoga Therapy workshop in Huelva, Spain.
Personally Yoga helped me a lot getting through a difficult phase in my life and focussing on the most important things. Thats why my Yoga classes are nothing to worry about- I have a calm music playlist and don‘t expect you to know the Sanskrit names of the poses, there is no competition and if someone looses balance - including myself, I will make a short joke and brighten up the mood. My classes are open-minded, funny and down-to earth.
I am also a Zumba teacher and a Thai Massagist, so my workshops are focussed on that, either a YogaDance Workshop or a Thai Massage Workshop.
About my Thai Massage Workshop
Last year I made one of my dreams come true and I learned how to give and receive Thai Massages in an intense Training in Madrid.
The benefits and similarities to Yoga made me think of this Workshop.
First of all we will talk about Thai Massage and how it is related to Yoga and about our own experience with Thai Massages. Then I will teach you some of the basics on beneficial parts of the bodys of whom we can profit in our Yoga Practice and then we start carefully giving and receiving Massages, discussing the different perspective and feelings in the end.
About my Zumba Workshop
When I was teaching Zumba and Yoga in a Hotel in Austria I came to the idea to combine those two elements.
I happened to see, that those who participated in my Zumba class before the Yoga class, were way more centered. In Zumba they didn‘t have time to think about their daily struggle because of the quick and new moves they had to focus on, so I always tried to offer Zumba before Yoga to profit from that.
My workshop combines a beginners Zumba class / Zumba party, with an after stretch and breathing routine in the end. We will talk about our experience and about the Zumba-Yoga Mixture.
