2019 Yoga Retreat
9 – 14 June 2019: Yoga Retreat, Andalucia, Spain – with Lucia Yoga.
Who’d like to join me at a dedicated yoga venue deep in the mountains of Spain, lush green forests, hiking, a varied yoga programme (not just me!) and five outdoor swimming pools!! Am I tempting you yet…??
This amazing yoga retreat week is hosted by Lucia Yoga and takes place in a beautiful villa complex within a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the mountains of Andalucia, close to Ronda.
I am delighted that I will be one of the guest teachers on this yoga holiday 9 – 14 June 2018.
Lucia Yoga’s dedicated private yoga retreat complex in the Parque Natural Sierra de Grazalema features its own yoga shala and apartment style accommodation. Each retreat has multiple yoga teachers, the choice of four yoga classes a day, amazing vegetarian food, and five, yes five, outdoor swimming pools!
Yoga Retreats in Spain with Lucia Yoga: Nature, comfort, and yoga in Andalucia
Give yourself the gift of wellbeing at the Lucia Yoga Nature Yoga retreat. Here is where the Parque Natural Sierra de Grazalema rises from quiet rural byways like an apparition, and the natural world takes over.
Great buttresses of rock are silhouetted against the clouds, which soar above a forested landscape. This landscape is tinged with green even when the rest of Andalucía turns yellow under a baking summer sun. A Unesco Biosphere reserve since 1977, and, according to BBC Travel, the best place to hike in Andalucia.
Two whitewashed villages serve as gateways to the yoga retreat center, Zahara de la Sierra and El Gastor.
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.
El Gastor is also known as the Balcony of the Andalusian White Villages. It has narrow passes connecting the village to high mountain passes which bring you up close to some of the prettiest mountain scenery in Spain.
Here you can enjoy beautiful accommodation surrounded by nature. You’ll be relaxed whether you decide to cool off after a hike in the mountains at our five outdoor pools with views of the Sierra, or simply put your feet up and read.
Fresh vegetarian meals will be cooked for you daily – you can savour local organic produce in delicious Mediterranean dishes. And you have a unique opportunity to practice a variety of yoga styles with different instructors immersed in the peace of nature.
If you’re looking for a mountain and yoga retreat, this is the place for you!
