This retreat will take you on a soul soothing journey through the elements, using yoga, Ayurveda and nature to help balance and harmonise your whole being.

Tucked away in Andalusia, between Malaga and Nerja, it is the perfect place to enjoy a pretty and peaceful break.
Here, beneath the warmth of the Mediterranean sun, you will unravel and unwind with ease. Lounging pool-side, lapping up the calming countryside views, practising yoga on the terrace, being soothed by the sound of the ocean and hungrily devouring delicious vegetarian food every day are just some of the things you will remember if you retreat here with me.
The Casa is beautifully and brightly decorated with 11 studios and apartments to accommodate guests, a pool, terrace, garden (complete with lounge chairs) and a common area for eating and relaxing. Its just a short reach to reach the beach and feel the sand between your toes.
Each studio offers a comfortable stay and has a bathroom with shower, kitchen, AC, TV and a double bed with separate mattresses or a french bed for sleeping.
An abundance of delicious dishes will be available every day, made with love and regionally grown fresh produce as much as possible. Once a week there will be a Spanish Tapas and BBQ night so you can try traditional, local cuisine.
Early each morning a light pre-practice breakfast is offered which includes fresh fruits, cereal, coffee and tea.
After practice there will be a rich and hearty brunch awaiting you which will include freshly prepared dishes such as homemade granola, pancakes, Spanish omelettes, quiche, fresh fruit, cereals, jams yoghurts, local cheeses, fresh baked bread and juice.
In the afternoon you can get a fruity smoothie, green juice, energy ball or chia pudding from our snack bar.
In the evening you can make your selection from our hot vegetarian buffet.
