Transformative Yoga Retreat in Almeria, Spain

FROM £935

18 - 25 JULY 2020

A wonderful opportunity to enjoy some sun, sea, relaxation and yoga in stunning Almeria, which is Spain’s sunniest and least developed region. The venue is set on the edge of one of Europe’s most remote and beautiful natural parks, the Cabo de Gata, which is one of Spain's last unspoiled stretches of coastline.  Offering an amazing landscape of perfect half-moon bays, hidden coves, bizarre volcanic rock formations, and spectacular flora and fauna, this really is an idyllic location and the perfect place to deepen your yoga and meditation practice.
 
The Venue
 
Set amid peaceful, lush gardens, surrounded by a stunning semi-desert landscape and within walking distance of the lovely traditional local village of Nijar, situated at the foot of a spectacular mountain backdrop, this really is a wonderful place for a retreat. 
 
The architecture echos ancient Mediterranean civilization and has long been a stylish, bohemian family home,  an exotic venue for photo shoots and is now adapted to cater for yoga groups.
The venue consists of the main house the ‘Finca’, which won awards in the 80’s for its striking modernist design, and a group of charmingly converted traditional buildings, the cortijos, just a couple of hundred yards from the main house. Yoga will take place in a fully equipped covered outdoor yoga space.
 
There are two pools. The houses eco-pool continually filters water through reed and water-plant beds and is crystal clear. Both pools are minimally treated to ensure cleanliness without harming the delicate eco-system. It makes for a lovely swimming experience.

Jeff has lots of experience teaching students of all levels. His depth of understanding, playful approach, ability to challenge students to safely explore their edge and his love of pranayama and meditation will give you the perfect opportunity to deepen your practice both physically and internally.

The Yoga

The long morning practice will be a dynamic, creative, playful and explorative ‘deep slow flow’ asana practice and will include meditation and pranayama.  By emphasizing the breath, mindfulness & skillful action and building up through a range of appropriate options – students, from the less experienced to the more advanced, will discover how to work peacefully at the level appropriate to them.

 

The afternoon session will be a mellower, soothing and nurturing practice, delving into areas such as yin yoga, restoratives, pranayama, chakras, yoga nidra and meditation.  This will totally bliss you out!  

Things To Do

In between yoga sessions you have time to relax by the pool or enjoy a massage by the amazing onsite therapists. There are some lovely local walks form the Finca  or we can arrange trips to local beaches and coast line within the national park which is a 20 - 30min drive away and we will have one afternoon off yoga to allow for a longer trip.
 
 We can also arrange a visit to Granada to visit the Alhambra which is 1.5 hours away but this needs to be booked well in advance so let us know if you would like more details on this.  If you are looking for peace and quite and want time to yourself there are plenty of quiet shady spots or if you are feeling sociable a yoga holiday is a great way to make new friends.  This really is the prefect place to do yoga in Spain!

Food

You will be served delicious vegetarian and vegan meals and there will be chicken and fish on offer a couple of times during the retreat for those who want it. The meals are healthy and varied with plenty of choices.

We can cater for gluten and dairy-free diets and for medical allergies. However, we regret we can’t cater for personal preferences or complicated special diets. One night a week dinner is eaten out, usually on excursion day.

Accommodation 

The accommodation is largely in shared twin or double ensuite rooms. A number of the rooms are in the main house which are a bit grander and others are in the converted Cortijo buildings a couple of hundred yards away. The Cortijo apartments have their own sitting room/kitchens. 

A limited number of singles are available at this venue for those who do want their own space, however, we would encourage you to consider sharing.  If you are coming on your own we can pair you with another person of the same gender, it’s a great way to make new friends and people who come on Jeff’s retreats are generally very lovely!  Non-yoga partners/friends are welcome.  

What My Students Say

‘Thank you Jeff for your absolutely outstanding teaching - I honestly don’t think the programme could have been improved upon in any way - a wonderful week - a fabulous group - and the perfect balance between challenge and deep relaxation . I have learned so much , worked absolutely to my edge and come home with my batteries totally recharged ! Who could ask for more from a yoga retreat ?!’

Angela

‘A week of yoga with Jeff is one of a kind. Every class was well-thought through, playful and inspiring. Jeff truly showed us what yoga is about - both on the mat and off the mat. He is an attentive, clever, and fun teacher.  We all needed a little bit of Jeff yoga magic to reset. This is my second retreat with Jeff and certainly not the last. Thank you!'

Desi

‘I have just come back from my first yoga retreat with Jeff.  It was truly remarkable.  The thought he put into the classes is unsurpassed.  It was fun, enlivening, strengthening, challenging, relaxing and restoring all in a single week.  I loved everything about it!  Looking forward to the next one - highly recommended!’
