Lucia Yoga Retreat with Lucy
25th JUNE - 30th JUNE 2017
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
UK. Lucy is trained in Dru Yoga - a gentle, flowing and slow yoga that is accessible to all bodies. She calls it #nostressyoga because she wants you to experience yoga that causes no stress to body or mind, and yoga that helps to ease the stresses of daily life.
Her classes are always accompanied by a carefully crafted music playlist and she doesn't care if you don't know your Downward Dogs from your Camel Pose, or if you get your left and right mixed up! Everyone is welcome to join Lucy for an inclusive yoga session.
Lucy ‘found’ yoga when she suffered nerve damage in her face caused by Shingles. She was looking for ways to cope with the pain and was pretty impressed by yoga but it took nearly ten years for her to get really serious about it. By then she'd become very familiar with nerve pain, back pain, ill health and generally being more than a bit cronky. Yoga was the key to not only dealing with it, but actually moving on from it.
Through all this she has learnt the hard way that having a healthy body is a life-long work in progress. And that yoga is the key to dealing with all the curve balls that life throws at you. No matter what happens, it always gets better when yoga is involved!
Lucy completed her 200 hour Dru Yoga training in Yorkshire, and has a post-graduate certificate in Dru Yoga for Back Care. Her passion is helping people to overcome stress, anxiety, chronic pain and back problems with yoga. She also teaches weekly Yoga for Runners classes, focusing on how to use slow yoga to release tight and tired muscles.
She has been running her own yoga business - Lucyoga - since 2011. Working in Leeds, London and West Yorkshire she has established a reputation for inclusive yoga classes that feature great tunes and quite a bit of banter!
She made a name for herself in London with her Rooftop Yoga Peckham classes and seasonal studio, which took place on the roof of a multi-story car park with a 360 view of the London skyline. She now runs workshops in London, monthly classes in Leeds and weekly classes in Keighley, West Yorkshire alongside her innovative retreat programme. Recent retreats include the Yoga Weekender - an urban yoga retreat which includes food, yoga and art.
