Lucia Yoga Retreat with Maite Aguirre
25 - 30 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
Now a passionate yogi, Maite was once a reluctant first time student. She saw her life change after just one yoga class. As Maite inhaled her first conscious breaths in that class in Colombia, she felt that she was connecting to her truest self. And so Maite began to combine her two passions, Yoga and Exploring the World. After earning a 500 hour RYT Hatha Yoga Certificate in California, she became a traveling yoga teacher.
During this adventure, Maite helped develop yoga programs in the resorts of the Costa Rican jungles. She has experienced the joy that came from introducing yoga to first time surfers and guided meditation classes at the San Blas Islands in Panama. She has taught in many locations: the high altitudes of Bogota, overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean in Santa Barbara, California, in the lush green Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky, in the cold December of Bergen, Norway, and in the cosmopolitan city of Madrid, Spain, her home country.
The Yoga World keeps nourishing Maite. She earned her Yin Yoga Certificate as a balance to her intense Hatha Yoga classes. She is currently immersed in an 1,000 hour Yoga Anatomy course at Blandine Calais-Germain.
Maite is convinced that the retreat experience in the magical Natural Park of Grazalema will make you connect with your yoga practice and allow you to take it to the next level. She is eager to meet and guide you through your practice of listening the body, connecting with your breath and nourishing your inner self.
Workshop: Anatomy and Yoga.
Having the right body alignment in your yoga posture compares to adjusting the antennae of an old TV: if you put the antennae at just the right orientation, you´ll get the best signal. In this Anatomy and Yoga workshop you will discover what the correct alignments of certain asanas are, you will see the difference these alignments make in your physical well-being, and how you can reduce the possibility of future injuries.
