About this trip

Join us in the Andalucian countryside for a refreshing retreat away from the hustle and bustle of your busy life.  It's time to rest and restore! Spain is more than just a destination; it’s a lifestyle, and a truly authentic Spanish experience means slowing down and savoring life.  Attune your body, mind and spirit with twice daily yoga and meditation.  Invigorate your senses as you explore picturesque villages, take in breathtaking vistas, and gather with new friends to taste amazing food and wine.  With ample downtime to relax and enjoy all that our private luxury hotel has to offer, it will be a trip to refresh your soul.  Come embrace a rejuvenating week in Spain!  


You will be guaranteed a warm welcome at Cortijo Sabila, a luxury Andalucian guest house nestled between two mountain ranges and near a typical whitewashed Spanish pueblo.  All guest suites are individually designed to reflect the cities of the region and have luxury en-suite bathrooms.  The interior of the hotel is beautifully appointed with antiques and objects d'art collected over many years by the owners.  Outside you will find multiple gardens,  terraces and gorgeous dining and lounge areas where our family-style meals will be served.  Complete with saltwater swimming pool and large spa jacuzzi, you are sure to find a spot in the sun or shade to spend the day relaxing and enjoying the beautiful vistas!


Three meals a day will be provided on the retreat, with the exception of one lunch on an excursion day.  Enjoy a continental breakfast, light lunch and a 3 course dinner served family style each evening.  We will kick off the retreat with a Spanish barbecue welcome dinner, enjoy tapas and wine tastings, and say farewell with a traditional pallea party.  Guests are raving about the food provided by the hosts, so we are looking forward to experiencing some delicious Spanish cuisine!  Dietary rectrictions can be accommodated, but please know that it might limit your choices at times.  Please let us know at the time of reservation what your dietary needs are.  


Enjoy a morning Hatha Slow Flow to awaken your body and deepen your breath.  Afternoon yoga will focus on more gentle and restorative practices, including guided meditations and body sensing practices.  This retreat is intentionally planned to be small for more personal instruction and attention during classes.  ALL levels are welcome.  This is not a hard core yoga retreat!

 ***Please note that the yoga schedule is subject to change on excursion days***


Indulge your senses and savor life in Spain with two cultural excursions and a trip to El Torcal National Park.  All included in your retreat package!    

  • A day trip to the mountaintop city of Ronda, one of Spain's oldest towns that is set dramatically above a deep gorge.  Enjoy wine tastings at one of the area's best vineyards with a special authentic Spanish lunch, followed by time to explore the historical town and breathtaking views.
  • A day in Granada, one of Spain's most fascinating cities and home to the world's finest Moorish monument: the Alhambra.  Take a step back in time as you wander the palaces and gardens that date back to 14th century.  Wind your way through the cobblestone streets and whitewashed houses of Albaicin, and find the perfect spot to relax at a local tapas bar or Moroccan tea house.  Top the evening off with dinner and flamenco!
  • Ecotour to protected natural area of El Torcal in Antequera.  With its spectacular stacked rocks and knobbly limestone towers, the otherworldly landscape of El Torcal is one of Spain’s most unique natural landscapes.  Now a protected nature reserve, El Torcal’s unusual terrain is celebrated both for its remarkable geology and its diverse wildlife, and the rocky landscape is home to around 700 different plant species and a colorful array of nesting and migratory birds.  Enjoy a spectacular hiking route around this unique landscape, followed by a traditional Andalucian lunch. 

Interested in exploring more of the surrounding area on your own?  The nearest town is just a 20 minute walk from the hotel.  For those interested in venturing out a little farther, the towns of Cordoba, Malaga, Nerja and more are all within an easy drive.  Personal day trips and excursions may be arranged through the hotel as desired for an additional cost, or you can rent a car upon arrival in Malaga to see the sights as you please!

Kristin Reed
I am a E-RYT 500hr yoga teacher, Thai massage therapist, dancer, and travel enthusiast based in Seattle, WA. I am deeply passionate about helping others find joy in movement and freedom in their bodies through yoga, massage and mindfulness. I believe that when you feel free and happy in your body it creates space for you to live the life of your dreams! For me, travel is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. Experiencing new lands, culture, food and art has the ability to open our eyes and spirits, and teach us about ourselves in a way that simply cannot be replicated by other means. I could not be more grateful to be able to combine my love of mind-body practices with the gift of travel. "We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time."
