About this trip

Adventure is refreshing and yoga is transformational.  Immerse yourself in this gorgeous Mediterranean city for a spiritual adventure that you will always remember!


Each morning we will begin our day with an energizing and strengthening asana practice to awaken all our senses.  Until the restorative and contemplative evening practice you will get to explore Spain's culture, art, architecture, gastronomy, parks and beaches in this vibrant city all day long. The classes will accommodate practitioners from all levels with the intention help you grow in your practice. You will also get to enhance your knowledge about the latest scientific researches on nutrition which will help you evaluate your dietary habits.


The main focus of our practice will be to enhance the quality of life through movement and meditation. We will tap into all aspects of our lives to explore our strength, weakness, courage, and fears to open space for change and growth. By taking a "Contemplative Intermission" everyday you will be able to see yourself clearly, understand the dynamics of your life, your intentions, and your actions better. During this retreat you will be encouraged to explore beyond your identity, experience a deep sense of existence, and upgrade your life.

Additional Information

Barcelona is one of the most exciting cities I’ve visited. Besides from its rich culture, art, and amazing hospitality of the locals, its gastronomy is exceptional and cost of food is surprisingly affordable-especially if you are coming from NYC. For dinner, I will have a list of places for you to explore wholesome food that will enrich your journey on the culinary side. Usually a dinner with an appetizer, main dish, and a drink cost ranges between 16-35E per person. Dinner on your first night is included, after that you will get to experience a different taste at a different restaurant each evening.


Barcelona has great beaches in the metro area as well as outside the city and you can enjoy the beach until late November. The beaches within walking distance from our casa are; Barceloneta Beach, Bogatell Beach.


If you would like to explore beaches  within 20-40 min train ride from nearby Plaza Catalunya station; Sitges beach & town, Badalona, Ocata, Vilassar de Mar, Arenys de Mar, and San Pol de Mar are also your options.
