Enjoy yoga, meditation, and relaxation in the beautiful mountain setting of Centro Punto de Luz, a tranquil retreat center in the heart of Andalucia, Spain. Each day will begin with uplifting and energizing yoga, and conclude with a gentle and reflective session. Morning yoga will take place just a short stroll up the mountain, amongst almond trees, wild fennel, rosemary, and lavender. The afternoon session will be in the cool patio. The day will be yours to explore the area, or simply relax by the saltwater pool.
Spectacular natural beauty and perfect Feng-Shui combine to create a superb location where one can truly experience living in harmony with nature. Nestling amongst the Andalucian Mountains, 815 meters above sea level, Punto de Luz is close within walking distance from the traditional Spanish white hamlet El Cañuelo. One of the many attractions of the center is its breathtaking views. With mountains on three sides, the center rests beside an open valley with a grand vista of both Lake Viñuela and the Mediterranean Sea.
Punto de Luz was originally designed for yoga retreats; therefore it beautifully lends itself to all activities that require a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere in a secluded location, as discovered by the television series "The Spa of Embarrassing Illnesses" who shot their first season here. Whatever your group, you will be mostly welcome and surely inspired at Punto de Luz!
Guest rooms are arranged around a central patio area, separated from the core building, creating the perfect environment for absolute comfort and relaxation. Each guest can enjoy en-suite accommodation and unlimited use of their fantastic salt water swimming pool.
Delicious and nutritious vegetarian cuisine of the highest quality is on the menu. Meals are lovingly prepared using local seasonal products and, with a Mediterranean flavor, recipes are a clever blend of modern and traditional fare.
The opportunity to indulge in one of several holistic therapies enhances the Punto de Luz experience. Massage, Reiki, and healing complement the retreat activities perfectly. Personalized consultations with a nutritional therapist are also available.

At Centre Punto de Luz, massage, Reiki, healing, and holistic nutrition are available in a lovely cozy wooden mini house called 'The Healing House'. Betty is fully qualified and insured to practice all therapies bellow.
Dr. Edward Bach was a physician and homeopath, who spent his life searching for the purest method of healing. He believed, as many doctors do today, that attitude of mind plays a vital role in maintaining health and recovering from illness. When he died in 1936 he had developed a complete system of 38 flower remedies, each prepared from the flowers of wild plants, trees, or bushes. They work by treating the individual rather than the disease or its symptoms. Today, these safe and gentle remedies are used world-wide by private individuals, medical, and complementary health practitioners, psychotherapists, counselors, dentists, vets, and healers.
The purpose of the remedies is to support the patient's fight against illness by addressing the emotional factors like depression, anxiety and trauma that are thought to impede physical healing. They can also be used preventively, at times of anxiety, and stress, and are particularly helpful for the many people who feel generally tired and unwell without a specific medical diagnosis.
Also known as pranic healing or spiritual healing, this is another form of energy therapy where the client receives the healing energy from the practitioner who acts as a channel. Each individual chakra can be treated with this method. As with Reiki, healing can take place with the client fully dressed, with or without hand contact, and combines particularly well with massage.
Holistic nutrition combines particularly well with Bach flower therapy and when needed, Betty will advise on flower mixtures to support healing at a deeper level. A consultation lasts approximately one hour and, if necessary, follow-ups can be arranged over the phone.
Reconnective healing is a form of healing that is here on the planet for the very first time. It reconnects you to the fullness of the universe as it reconnects you to the fullness of your being and of who we are. It is considered to be able to reconnect you to the universe and to your very essence, not just through a new set of healing frequencies, but through possibly an entirely new bandwidth. The reality of its existence has demonstrated itself clearly in practice as well as in science laboratories.
Reiki means life force and is the transmission of the universal life force or energy to the client via the practitioner who acts as a channel, thereby stimulating the client's spontaneous healing process. Reiki treatment can take place fully dressed and with or without hand contact. It also combines particularly well with massage.
Relaxing massage using only natural vegetable oils can be combined with Reiki or healing.

"How often do you allow this to happen? Whether at work, in the kitchen, or through your leisure time, allowing yourself to express the creativity within will help bring more balance, fun and satisfaction into your life. When did you last do something creative that you enjoyed and that made you feel good about yourself? I attended a yoga and art workshop with Chandra Yoga which truly re-awakened this side of me. Creating my daily affirmations allows me to be creative in my own way, each day. And it really can be that simple."
