Lucia Yoga Retreat with
Beatrice Pattenden

25-30 March 2020

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, castle-topped 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 savor 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!

BEATRICE PATTENDEN
yoga retreat with Beatrice Pattenden

My passion for fitness and yoga began at high school age, during my time as a young gymnast, when I realised that I wanted to pursue a career in the health and fitness industry. At the age of 22 I graduated with a Bachelor’s level degree from the University of Physical Education and Sport in Bucharest – Specialising in Advanced Exercise and Fitness. Following graduation in 2006, I’ve had the privilege of working as a Health and Fitness Director for world renowned cruise liner companies such as Royal Caribbean and Celebrity. My roles there included the delivery of health seminars, fitness classes, yoga sessions and one-on-one focussed personal training sessions. Since then I’ve added other fitness qualifications such as; Nutritional Therapy, Exercise to Music, Zumba and Freestyle Fitness Yoga. I believe these certifications compliment my training style, add value and much needed variety to both myself and my clients’ sessions.

When I’m not training myself or my clients or practicing yoga, I love spending time with my little girl, Sophie, and my husband, Richard. Due to my husband’s job the Royal Air Force we have been fortunate enough to live in some amazing and interesting places such as Cambridge, Portsmouth and Lincoln. Our new adventure has now begun in the beautiful Scottish Highlands.

I am fascinated with amazing entertainers in shows such as ‘Cirque du Soleil’, and have travelled to a variety of locations to see them perform, the most recent performance being ‘Ovo’ in the beautiful city of Manchester.

My yoga sessions are full of variety and energy, and I’m looking forward to meeting you all at the retreat in beautiful Spain.
