Summer Yoga Retreat 2024 Spain

Summer Yoga Retreat 2024  - July 28th to August 3rd We love travelling, and we are passionate about sharing the wonderful benefits of Yoga and Ayurveda with our students, so it makes perfect sense to combine both of these pleasures. Our Summer Yoga Retreat holidays began in 2011 and we are now looking forward to our fifteenth Retreat, which in 2024 will take place in fabulous Andalucia, on the Costa del Sol, Spain. Come and join us in the stunning Santillán Retreat Centre, a hillside yoga and wellness centre with outstanding sea views. Santillán is a beautifully renovated traditional 50,000 m2 cortijo located in the peace of the Spanish countryside, yet conveniently only 35 minutes from Malaga airport. It is also close to Granada, Cordoba, Ronda, Marbella and the white villages of Andalucia. We will have exclusive use of the Retreat Centre with all its marvellous facilities, described below. CLICK HERE TO SEE MORE.

Experience the benefits of a Summer Yoga Retreat Holiday

We all lead hectic, busy lives and getting away for a break is essential for our well-being. A Summer Yoga Retreat holiday is a chance to genuinely give yourself the time and space you need to relax, recover and recharge completely. How would an ideal day look? Wouldn't you like to practise Yoga in the morning, then relax before having breakfast together looking out on the beautiful Andalucian hills, with panoramic views of the valley below stretching all the way to the sea. Rest, read, walk, meditate or sunbathe and swim. Allow yourself to let go, to assimilate the rejuvenating effects of the practices, to take the time for self-care that you so rarely have in the normal course of a busy life. We meet up for lunch and dinner each day.  We are only a short drive away from several beautiful beaches, so you also have the option to explore the local area in the afternoons for a few hours, A gentle evening Yoga practice rounds off a perfect day. Treat yourself to a week with plenty of time to practise Yoga, eating locally sourced, freshly prepared food, enjoying beautiful weather in the company of like-minded people.  Need we say more?
