Practice yoga, movement and breath work under the bluest of skies. Wake after a blissful night’s sleep to the gentlest of birdsong and swim in a pool stretching towards an infinity of green, majestic mountains. Connect with like-minded souls and enjoy the feeling of being completely and utterly at peace.
No work commitments. No school runs. No hectic commutes. This is your chance to get away from the daily grind and give yourself the opportunity to re-centre, reconnect and get back to being you.
Welcome to a blissful summer in south Spain.
Our beautiful home, Finca Avedin, is set in 15 acres of cork forest, cradled in green mountains and within walking distance to the local artists’ village of Gaucín. With white-washed walls, hidden terraces, lemon, orange and pomegranate trees, gorgeous super-king bedrooms and of course, that (salt-faltered) infinity pool, this place is literally a slice of heaven. Over seven, soul-refilling days you can expect plenty of down time, laid-back vibes and all-round loveliness.
All rooms are en-suite. Most have walk-in showers and all are fitted with fans to keep you cool. Organic, vegan toiletries and hairdryers are provided for you along with bath and pool towels, and a linen change during our stay. You can choose from a triple, standard double/twin or master-suite double.
The emphasis here is on comfort, so you can drop into calm, fun and flow. We’ve got two spacious living rooms, a huge kitchen, table tennis and multiple terraces with nooks for when you want to curl up with a book or simply enjoy your own company.
Our mornings will start with a little period of silence where you can journal with a cup of tea, or simply allow yourself to wake up in your own time. Following that we'll begin a practice of pranayama (breath work) and a Hatha Flow class to stoke the inner fire and remove any stagnation from the night before. Evenings will be a mixture of slow flow, yin yoga (a more meditative style with longer held poses) or guided meditations.
You can also expect workshops covering self-development, self-care and an asana clinic where we break down some postures to help you deepen your practice. We’ll also dance, draw and create.
All food on the retreat will be vegetarian (with vegan options) and catered for by our amazing retreat chef, Skye Saker. Our menu will be based on the principles of Ayurveda to bring our bodies into balance from the inside out, and Skye will be providing a workshop for us, too. Allergies and intolerances can be catered for, and all teas, juices etc are also included in the price.
We're Nat and Sim, a British-German couple who've been running yoga retreats together for the last couple of years. With over 700 hours of Yoga Alliance certified training between us, we're super passionate about sharing the magic of yoga, self-care and self-development.
For Nat, yoga is a way of getting to know who we really are, once we get past the upbringing we’ve had, the circumstances we’re presently in or the idea of who we want to be. It’s a place where we can experience inner strength, resilience, balance and freedom. Her biggest passion is helping you to find yours because we all deserve to love the lives we’re living.
Simon grew up in Southern Bavaria with two buddhist, hippy parents, developing an early connection and fascination with eastern spirituality and philosophy. Spiritual practice, self-care, ayurvedic nutrition and fitness were some of the tools he used to recover from burnout, and he’ll be bringing his passion for pranayama, meditation and heart-led human interaction to our retreat.
