Lucia Yoga Retreat with Elizabeth Stimson
29th SEPTEMBER - 4th OCTOBER 2019
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
Elizabeth has been practicing yoga and meditation for over 10 years and has had a keen interest in health and fitness throughout her life; training as a gymnast until her late teens. She believes there is a magical quality to the yoga practice which helps us work through life’s issues, physically challenging the body to focus & calm our minds. She is passionate about sharing these qualities in her classes, creating flows which cultivate a sense of exploration & personal enquiry for her students.
She believes yoga is for everyone - and creates a warm and inclusive atmosphere in class, with options so there is something for all students. She brings a light hearted and playful quality and, through her training, a strong foundation in both anatomy & physiology and yoga philosophy. She continues to be inspired by a range of yoga styles and some fitness too! Her classes are grounded in meditation and yoga philosophies which inspire her own practice. She loves moving the body creatively and playfully; flowing through carefully crafted sequences that do work students hard but also give space to let the stresses of modern life melt away and to connect to a greater awareness of ourselves.
She teachers vinyasa flow – a flowing & strong style of yoga which allows the student to explore breath with movement.
She undertook a 2 year intensive training with Triyoga and is a Yoga Alliance accredited (350 hours) and British Wheel of Yoga certified teacher. She has also undergone additional training in creative sequencing.
