Yoga Retreat with Corrie Mathiowetz
7-12 August 2020
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
Meet Corrie: I’m a certified yoga therapist & teacher, a life coach, and a traveler!
I adore my family, students, & friends. I feel fulfillment exploring life, sharing bottomless cups of tea or coffee, relaxing in spas, getting massages, yoga, life coaching, teaching, yoga, live music, dancing, meditating, yoga, traveling, and I’m always learning. I’m not afraid of snakes and avoid bagpipes. My vision of an awesome world is where everyone possesses the physical and emotional well-being to create a life they truly love!
I love helping people find greater ease and joy in living. I’m the kind of person who meets people on the train and they tell me their joys and sorrows before the next stop; I listen. I value time with my students. When asked for help I can quickly identify what’s happening and offer tools to transform points of view in a small conversation. The best part though, is when I get to spend more time with students clearing the path to their truth and knowing. It delights me when my students’ share how a session together brought transformation to some areas of their life immediately. And I love seeing students use the practices over time for self-care and to create lives they truly love to be in. Identifying your desires, and choosing the right tools to inspire a change are my superpowers. What are you struggling with in your life? What are your desires? What are you doing to bring change to the story? Not sure? I’d love to help.
