Lucia Yoga Retreat with Chrissy Chelinski
8 - 13 SEPTEMBER 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, 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
Hi, I’m Chrissy, a Dru Yoga Teacher, Chakradance Facilitator, Yin Yoga and Gentle Somatic Yoga Teacher. I’m also trained in Nada Yoga (the Yoga of Sound) and in Yoga Nidra and love to weave these beautiful practices together to create a nourishing and inspiring space for students with a healing soundscape of beautiful vibrations from a range of musical instruments. After many years of Yoga practice, I qualified in Dru Yoga in 2008 after being blown away by its flowing, compassionate and accessible style which enables everyone to practice and benefit from Yoga equally and without discrimination. This heart centred Dru approach , has formed the foundations on which I’ve grown ,both in my own practice and in teaching the community of students who’ve practiced with me over the years in my classes, workshops or on retreats and it’s been a wonderful journey of discovery through yoga so far .
I’ve loved music since I was a little girl growing up in an expressive Irish, Polish family. For over 20 years I regularly danced the 5 Rhythms of Gabrielle Roth. Then, turning 50, I trained as a Chakradance™ Facilitator, combining my two paths of Yoga and Dance - Chakradance is an amazing moving meditation, a free form dance journey through the Chakra system which is energising ,even transformational, and brilliant to share. I practice Infinite Tai Chi and Qi Gong, I’m an Usui Reiki Level 2 healer and have recently been trained in Emotional Freedom Technique. I’m married, a Mum of two young adult daughters and owner of a much loved elderly 14 year old dog called “Dinky”!
