Lucia Yoga Retreat with Zoe Goodyear
23TH - 28TH APRIL 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!

Living a Yoga Lifestyle through the Yamas and Niyamas
There can be no doubt that in the west we have fallen in love with yoga. But the reason why goes beyond the flashy postures, the nice leggings, and pretty Instagram pictures. It’s that feeling you get after those first few practices, the glimpse of peace and connectedness, which draws us in. Maintaining that feeling over time , seeing progress, and staying motivated to continue the journey, will however depend upon the Yoga that happens off your mat, by embracing a Yoga lifestyle to the fullest.
