Find Your Balance
An Astanga and Restorative Yoga Retreat
Join me and Sarah Vaughan (E-RYT500) in beautiful southern Spain for an unforgettable yoga getaway! Develop your Astanga practice each morning, then balance that dynamic energy with a late afternoon class blending slow Hatha, Yin and Restorative yoga to nurture the body, mind and spirit. There will also be five optional afternoon workshops to help you deepen your understanding of yoga. All levels of yoga experience are welcome.
The stunning yoga venue of Huzur Vadisi is on the edge of one of Europe’s most remote and beautiful national parks offering peace and isolation with a spectacular mountain backdrop. Almeria is Spain’s sunniest region and one of the least visited. Its proximity to North Africa means that the area is semi-desert, dry and dramatic, with imposing mountains and dazzling sea. It’s an amazing landscape of perfect half-moon bays, hidden coves, bizarre volcanic rock formations, a wonderful wild coastline. The venue is in a peaceful, isolated location, just half an hour from Almeria airport but within walking distance of the lovely traditional local village of Nijar.
The venue consists of the main house, which won awards in the 80’s for its striking modernist design, and a cortijo or farm that has been converted in the original local style into charming accommodation, located a couple of hundred yards from the main house. It sits in the semi-desert landscape amid lush gardens, its architecture echoing ancient Mediterranean civilizations. Both houses have their own beautiful natural swimming pool fed by spring water and filtered by reed beds. Each house accommodates up to twelve people in shared twin or double rooms, or single occupancy.
