There are several types of accommodation offered at Asturias Yoga. We offer accommodation in two traditionally restored, charming mountain cabins on site, with private and shared room options. Both are situated above a small mountain meadow and chestnut forest, with great views overlooking unspoiled mountains.

It has a kitchen, a bathroom, and a stone built fireplace with supplied firewood. It accommodates up to four people, in either private or double rooms. The cabin is usually offered on a shared basis, although if available, it can also be reserved for private usage.

You can also choose our glamping option in a four-meter bell tent on a spectacular mountain ridge with views of the Picos de Europa and the Gueña valley. The tents come with comfortable mattresses and bedding. If you are after a little luxury, Asturias Yoga can arrange accommodation at the Casona de Con, a boutique rural hotel seven kilometers away from the shala.

Program

Beginning each day with gentle yoga and pranayama, you will experience a safe and time-tested approach for deepening relaxation, remaining strong and flexible while pregnant, and also easing the delivery process. Our guest presenter who is a certified and highly experienced midwife will be on hand throughout the retreat to answer personal questions and offer encouragement and inspiration. Participants will also receive a breadth of information on the use of plant medicines, which can be appropriate during the pregnancy, in the actual birth itself and also postpartum.

Herbal medicine can offer a gentle aid to common issues such as morning nausea, heartburn, hemorrhoids, constipation, and other conditions. As well, they may be used as a nutritional supplement before and after birth due to their abundance of vital nutrients important in proper muscle tone, blood composition, and hormonal activities.

During this retreat, you will benefit from workshops given by a registered U.K midwife on antenatal and postnatal care in a friendly, community environment. The program begins on the first day with a prenatal yoga class at 9:30 a.m. followed by brunch. It is recommended to have a light snack before arrival. The program ends on the last day after lunch, around 3 p.m.

Retreat location

This retreat will be held in Asturias, Spain. Known in Spanish as “paraiso natural”, Asturias comprises spectacular geographical features, Europe’s most diverse eco-system, and traditional culture. It is a land of high mountain peaks in juxtaposition with sandy ocean beaches and sea-cliffs; it is famous for verdant mountain forests, green valleys and renowned cave-aged cheeses.

The exact location of the retreat will be on the lower slopes of the Picos de Europa Mountains, not so far from the ocean, in a quiet chestnut, hazel and oak forest. There is a vegetable garden and a young orchard with five bee hives.
