Transformative Yoga Retreat in Spain - Almeria

FROM £935
18 - 25 JULY 2020

Are you ready for a deep, profound yoga experience?

WHY CHOOSE THIS RETREAT?

This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some sun, sea, relaxation and authentic yoga in stunning Almeria, Spain’s sunniest and least developed region, which offers the perfect place to deepen your yoga and meditation practice.
 
 Having explored many different styles of yoga,  taught for nearly 20 years and led over 50 retreats, Jeff is highly skilled at offering a deep, rich experience to a wide range of abilities (from relative beginners to advanced practitioners and yoga teachers ) at the same time.
 
After a week immersing yourself in yoga and meditation, eating delicious, healthy food, making new like-minded friends, surrounded by the beautiful and unique natural environment you can't help but return home feeling recharged and rejuvenated.

"Having recently returned from Jeff’s retreat in Almeria, I can honestly say, that it was the best retreat I’ve been on. The long, thoughtfully designed classes catered for all abilities in a playful and fun way. I loved the long meditations and pranayama practices, each one building up on the previous one. I felt challenged and nourished at the same time. I arrived with few aches and pains which have all gone by the end of the week. Apart from being an excellent, talented teacher, Jeff has a unique ability to bring a group together and make sure everyone is seen and included if they want to be. I came by myself and didn’t know anyone, yet I never felt lonely. I can’t wait for the next retreat."  Katya

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 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.

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.
 
"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! " Suzanne x

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!  
 
"Jeff's teaching has not only transformed my yoga practice but also given me the confidence to pursue my own teaching training. Going on his retreat was one of the best decisions I could of made - the people, the food and Jeff's stunning approach to yoga. A very rewarding experience! " Sophie 

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!
 
"I've just come back from one of Jeff's retreats, which was perfect! Jeff remains one of my favourite yoga teachers, boy this guy knows how to sequence a yoga class. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced practitioner Jeff will find a way to challenge you in body and mind. He invites you to step outside your comfort zone in ways that always feel fun and safe. He's light hearted, humble, warm and one of those rare teachers who makes the effort to remember everyone's name and to make everyone feel welcome. He never ceases to inspire me as a teacher and a student of yoga. He's also just a really nice guy! What more do you want? Highly recommend getting to class, workshops or retreats when you can." Ayesha

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

"Just got back from a week retreat in Italy with jeff and would highly recommend for anyone looking to deepen their practice, hit the reset button and learn more about yourself and yoga asanas, pranayama, meditation & philosophy. I was feeling quite stuck in my personal practice and teaching before the retreat - and now I feel like I’ve rediscovered the joy and love I have for yoga. I learnt so so much that I will be able to take into my practice and teaching. Thank you so much jeff "
