About this trip

Are you interested in your own growth and getting everything out of your life that you desire? Do you feel there is more to you but you just don’t know how to access that?

Are you tired of dramas playing out in your life and ready to take charge? Are you looking for ways to come into your power?

This retreat is for you if you are curious to see how to “live” philosophy and transform knowledge into embodied wisdom. If you want to experience how you can use different flavors of energy to nurture, support and strengthen your power. If you are ready to let go of the things that are holding you back from being yourself completely.

This week will give you the chance to step up for your true self, to take responsibility for your life, drop the stories that keep you trapped in limiting beliefs, to forgive, to speak your truth and to let go of the past.

Are you ready to come into your power and freedom? The freedom to completely be who you are, to love fully and to be present in all aspects of your life is in your own hands!

During this week everything is geared to support your journey; you will stay in a beautiful venue in natural surroundings.

You will be away from the business and enter into stillness, enjoy mountains , do treekings and having renewing baths in natural pools with fresh water from the mountains.

You will be served delicious vegetarian foods that are low in sugar and carbs so that you enjoy your natural energy, feel relaxed and increase your clarity.

Located in the Tiétar valley, on the south-east side of the Gredos mountains,  we can fully immerse ourselves in nature .

We will stay in a large property with rural houses made of stone and wood, in harmony with the landscape, with double and single rooms, all with private bathrooms.

A place with dozens of unique corners, to listen to the water, the wind and observe the magic of the growth of life.

The classes are taught in a room of 140 m2 with wooden floor hidden in the forest and with views to the outside.

In September we can still enjoy the outstanding mountains views swimming pool, cleaned with sea salt instead of chlorine.

You can reach this magic place in just one an hour and a half from Madrid (transport from the airport included).

A unique space to practice, reflect, connect, feed consciously and rest.


This retreat invites you to come into deep contact with yourself and help you to move and shift things in your life that are not serving you and move you towards more freedom and fullness in life.

Sandra’s yoga teaching is a real mix of movement (flow and intuitive or free movement) and alignment. Her alignment work is knowledge and sensory based. Sandra will offer techniques so you can find and feel the alignment that fits your body.

There will be daily yoga classes with Sandra, stress release practices and meditation.

You will also dive a bit deeper into philosophy and coaching exercises (written and sharing) and partner exercises. Part of the day will be in silence, giving you a chance to go deeper into yourself.

At the end of this week, you will have a good sense for what is right for you and where your energy flows and your body feels stable and free.


We will have time to discover this pure part of Spain, a freshwater paradise during the late summer time.

We will explore the area and enjoy beautiful hikings, bathing in different secluded natural baths with water that comes down from the mountains and comtemplating a unique clear starry sky at night.

All excursions and transport during the trips are included.

Excellent! Wonderful teacher and yoga sessions, awesome location, lovely food and rural location and a great bunch of people. Oh and a very brilliant massage too with Moshka which was a lovely surprise. The retreat was very well planned with a packed and varied schedule. Enjoyed not starting too early but then having lots of things to look forward to everyday. Some great excursions to the beaches which were beautiful and the weather was warm in December. A lovely and different way to spend new year, very relaxing and also fun and never felt alone even though I didn't know a soul on the retreat. Would 100% book another retreat with Shama! Thank you Laura, Paloma and Celia x

La experiencia ha sido maravillosa, como en todos los retiros de Shama. El alojamiento es muy acogedor, las habitaciones confortables con unas camas comodísimas y la comida realmente deliciosa, que apetecía repetir siempre. El entorno del lugar es espectacular y muy tranquilo, ideal para unos días de desconexión. Una pena que fuimos en diciembre y no pudimos disfrutar de las pozas. Y la sala de práctica, con todos sus budas y la decoración, tiene una energía ideal para ese tipo de actividades. Todas las actividades que propuso Paloma nos ayudaron a crear un ambiente de grupo en el que te sentías acogida, respetada y abrazada. Las distintas prácticas sirvieron para desconectar, liberarnos y soltar. Prácticas adaptadas para todo el mundo y en las que el tiempo se pasaba volando. Darle las gracias a Paloma por todo el trabajo que hay detrás de cada retiro, por cuidar cada detalle y organizarlo todo tan bien. Deseando repetir experiencia el año que viene.
