25-30 March 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, castle-topped 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 savor 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
SAM RUSSELL

After a wonderful career traveling the world as a professional dancer, an almost daily attendance at the gym led me to make a career of it and to teach group fitness. Once I had the basic foundations in the world of Exercise to music under my belt, the fitness bug bit hard and the next decade saw me add several more qualifications to the list including Les Mills BODYBALANCE, BODYJAM, Sh’Bam and BODYPUMP, Level 3 Personal Training, Level 3 Mat Pilates, Step, Aerobics, Dance Fitness, (Zumba), STRONG by Zumba, Weight Training, a 3rd Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo (World Taekwondo Federation), Blue Belt in Hapkido, training in Wu Shu Kung Fu and of course Yoga as well as a few other certifications to the ever-growing list.

My first encounter with yoga was via Les Mills BODYBALANCE. I loved how the yoga made me feel, physically and mentally, I loved how it helped my members feel better, and of course, there was the obvious benefit of this being something I could continue to teach into later life.

Inclusivity is very important to me. I want everyone to feel safe and nurtured and leave feeling amazing and happy.

My (current) favorite quote: “Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter the flame.” –B.K.S lyengar
