Spanish retreat 2020 June 23rd - 30th 7 nights

One week retreat in Andalucia

Set in the heart of rural Andalucia, in the land of olive trees, deep blue skies and whitewashed villages, a perfect retreat setting to get away from it all.

Food at the Cortijo is made fresh on the day by the experienced house chef, Steve Robinson. Using only the freshest ingredients, many of which are locally sourced. Three perfectly healthy and wonderfully tasty meals a day are included.

There are tw sessions daily to attend, the morning session is yoga, an invigorating way to start the day. The yoga session will be tailored to the groups needs. I am an experienced teacher and able to to deliver a safe and challenging session with mixed abilities in one group.

Meal times are a big part of our day, breakfast is buffet style with fresh fruits, yogurts,muesli,bread cheese,eggs,juices, coffee and tea, also a traditional Andalusian breakfast of chopped tomatoes on bread with a little sea salt.

After breakfast is free time. Read a book, sunbathe, swim in the pool or relax in one of the many chill areas.

A 2 course lunch is served, we sit in the covered area at the top of the retreat center with views of beautiful mountains.

There is an optional afternoon workshop, i will decide on the topic when i know my group, we have previously done ,yoga for relieving back pain, partner yoga, arm balances and the science of sun salutations.

The evening session is either meditation or restorative yoga, gentle and meditative, i take along Tibetan singing bowls for some sound therapy too.

we shower/bath and dress for dinner which is a 3 course meal. You can purchase wine or a drink to go with this, there is an honesty bar.

We have a pizza night , we have fresh hand made bases and pile on our own toppings, Steve then cooks it in the Pizza oven, this is a real highlight that everyone enjoys.

We also have a paella night. A hot tub and bubbles night if wished.

This will be my 4th time returning, it is a truly beautiful place, amazing hosts and wonderful food.

Create some amazing new memories with me and book your place.

Spain 2017 and 2018

 For the second year in a row I have joined Karen’s incredible 1 week Spanish yoga retreat and this year certainly didn’t disappoint! I can honestly say I have never felt so relaxed and content surrounded by so many wonderful, like-minded individuals and I cannot wait for next year. I couldn’t recommend Karen’s classes/retreats enough as she really caters for all abilities and ensures everyone feels so welcome. Thank you so much for a magical week Karen x
