Yoga Retreat with Cheryl Shillington
23th - 28th July 2017
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!

GUEST YOGA INSTRUCTOR
Cheryl has been a dedicated yogini for the past 19 years. She has completed several yoga teacher training's including but not limited to a year long program in 2006 at Still Point Yoga and level 5 of the Agama School of Yoga in 2012 where she studied in Thailand under Swami Vivekananda Saraswati. She has over 1000 hours of teacher training, which is just the beginning....as a great yogi once said, YOGA IS 99% PRACTICE AND 1% THEORY. Practice happens breath by breath, moment by moment and she shares this philosophy with her students both on and off the mat.
She leads practice at her studio, in the school community, and corporate settings. She has attended many retreats including a10 day silent Vipassana retreat in 2014. If you can breathe, you can practice yoga and she encourages students to realize their own potential beginning with the breath. Yoga is not about turning yourself into a pretzel but to see who you really are....not who your mind thinks you are.
Cheryl is also a dedicated mother and a registered social worker, who weaves yoga and mindfulness (the two are one) through her life including her work. She encourages her students, her family and her clients to do the same - take your yoga off the mat and share it with others by sharing love, compassion and light indiscriminately.
She is eager to share her love of BEING with you at Lucia Yoga, Granada Spain from July 9 - 14, 2017.
