Lucia Yoga Retreat with Christine Jauréguiberry
2nd - 7th OCTOBER 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
Christine, who is originally from Germany, came to yoga back in 2005 when she was in her mid-twenties. She had been suffering from scoliosis and back ache since she was a teenager so was looking for a way to manage her back pain. After she spent a lot of time seeing physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors she was hoping to find something that would create a more lasting effect.
Yoga gave her the tools and empowerment to be in control of her own well-being. She found that she could soon adapt her practice how she wanted to and how it would serve her body, mind and spirit best. After a few years of practising Ashtanga Yoga intensively she started to become more curious about different styles of yoga like Iyengar Yoga, Bikram Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga and Scaravelli inspired Yoga. She felt drawn to the slower styles of Hatha Yoga – especially Scaravelli Yoga and started to discover a new way of moving for her body and freedom in the spine.
She finally started her teacher training a few months after her second child was born and has loved teaching ever since! Christine is a fully qualified 200hr Yoga Teacher, a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher, Yoga for Scoliosis and Restorative Yoga Teacher. Her teaching is heavily influenced by the teachers such as Donna Farhi, Adelene Cheong, Judith Hanson Lasater and Vanda Scaravelli.
Christine is passionate about helping people who suffer from back ache, scoliosis or other back related conditions to learn about their bodies and how to use yogic postures and techniques so they can feel in control, empowered and live a pain free life.
In her classes she focuses on alignment and posture always bearing in mind individual bodies and shapes. She believes that yoga is for everyone - not just the fit and flexible! With compassion and awareness we can achieve the transformation that we are looking for.
"Yoga with Christine has helped me to slow down, unwind and build strength and flexibility. She takes care to provide different options for poses to find the right balance for you, while guiding with her expertise, practical approach, sense of humour and warmth" Louise, New Malden
