Yoga & Relaxation Retreat in Andalusia, Spain
2020: Dates TBC
Our Yoga retreat will be held in Finca Los Pinos, a stunning country Lodge, set in the mountains amongst the pine trees, with views to the Mediterranean Sea and across the mountains.
It's a wonderfully tranquil setting, in the midst of nature, beautifully positioned in the foot hills of the Almijara and Tejeda mountain ranges, Andalusia, Spain. 3km from the pretty white washed mountain market town of Competa.
Your teachers will be Clare Kerrigan and Kay Manby. There will be daily Hatha Yoga in the morning, opening with breath awareness and moving into a mindful and breath-led practice, exploring sun salutations, creative sequencing and guided meditations to generate a feeling of vitality and energy in the body and mind, this practice will be suitable for all levels. The afternoon/ early evening yoga will be a slower, quieter flowing practice, weaving in Restorative yoga, Qigong and Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation/yogic sleep).
Daytimes will be free for relaxing, swimming and taking in the beautiful scenery - its right on the doorstep of a national park. There will be a guided mountain walk to the Lost Village where we can enjoy a Tapas lunch together and a trip down to the coast to picnic by the sea! There are also 2 optional excursions (details below) which will be spread out throughout the week. Finally there will be an afternoon visit to explore the wonderful market and an evening meal in the nearby pretty white washed town of Competa. The average temperature will be warm with an average 29C.
