Casa Mayor is a beautiful yoga retreat in the Mountains of Malaga. It can be found nestling into the Andalucian mountainside in 63 acres of its own land. Casa Mayor was in a very 'rustic' state when originally bought. The owner has spent some years now, working to get the place restored and rejuvenated. The farmhouse has been restored, retaining most of the original character - the ambiance of a Spanish finca of yesteryear.

Casa Mayor Yoga Retreat is a place of spiritual healing, a place where the mind can experience its own stillness.

All your meals are included in the price. You will experience vegetarian cooking first hand - both cooking and eating!

    "The yoga working holiday in June 2015 was nothing short of a life-changing experience for me. I arrived with a head full of work commitments and accumulated day-to-day 'clutter' and my body calling out for some attention. The yoga and meditation (first time for me), the friendship, good humour and generosity of everyone I met at Casa Mayor, the healthful, satisfying work refreshed and calmed my mind; and the combination of all of the above together with more yoga and fabulous vegetarian food strengthened and reinvigorated my body. The mix of work, rest and yoga is a potent combination that brought me a sense of balance and presence that I believe will always stay with me. I will definitely repeat. Casa Mayor is a very special place and the hosts and yoga specialists, Deirdre and Bill, are very special people."
