Lucia Yoga Retreat with Janet Keogh
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
Janet teaches supportive, slow flow and vinyasa classes that combine playful, energetic sequences with a deep curiosity about the mind/body connection. Her hope is to help each of her students feel as though they can come to a yoga class or retreat to build awareness, release holding patterns, and, ultimately, come home to themselves.
For Janet, yoga has allowed a re-connection with with her authentic self after living through challenging personal experiences. She fell in love with the mindful, contemplative dimension that a yoga practice added to her life. Soon it began to feel as though each practice brought her home to herself: and how to best align her life with her core values. Curiosity about the profound change she experienced, led her to dive deeply into the study of yoga, particularly how emotions are held and released by the practice. She believes yoga is a powerful tool that allows us to notice the mind/body connection to better understand ourselves, so we can be the best versions of ourselves and allow our true spirit to shine. She currently teaches public classes in Chicago and leads international retreats that foster re-connection and exploration in my students. She thinks of herself first as a student of yoga and continue to study extensively and widely to deepen her teaching.
