“Everyone should have themselves regularly overwhelmed by nature”
Our Andalusian escapes provide you with a warm and welcoming space, a world away from your day to day roles and responsibilities, where we support you to disconnect, stretch out, rest, replenish and reconnect with the whole of you. We offer our own unique blend of yoga, acupuncture and qigong meditation that combine perfectly for deeper awareness, relaxation and release.
An Ayurvedic inspired natural skincare session is included at all our escapes for mindful body care opportunities, the glow factor and usually a bit of a giggle, and also a wild swimming trip to get fresh and bold in a little known local beauty spot. Treks and walks in the mountains, plenty of time for rest and sunbathing, three delicious, veggie, healthy and locally sourced meals, all combined with a theme of mindfulness throughout, provide the ingredients and method for a right tasty recipe for wellness. Massage and other therapies are also available on site for some added feel-goodness.
The therapies and activities in combination enhance the benefits of each other and provide simple and effective ways for you to tune into your body, find some headspace, connect with the natural environment, air the overwhelmed parts of you and help you feel more alive, happy and relaxed.
Our escapes are open to both men and women unless otherwise specified, and we welcome all levels of fitness and wellness. We do especially love it when beginners join us!
"It really was the perfect retreat away. EXACTLY what I needed.
Thank you both so much, big love"
