This yoga retreat's special focus is on those techniques that are simple to apply, so that you can apply these techniques into your daily practice at home.

Meditation primer

Meditation is the key to positive thinking, inner peace, creativity and joy in life. Everyone can learn meditation, given some basic patience. Already 10 - 15 minutes of daily practice can tap into an inexhaustible energy supply of energy and provide inner peace and balance. In a meditative state, you can connect to your higher self. In this yoga retreat's meditation course, Godea Vida will show and share with you these experiences.

Yoga

The yoga classes are based on 12 basic postures (asanas) that can be found in Hatha yoga. Breathing exercises (pranayama), meditation and relaxation will aid you in finding the right balance in your yoga practice. The exercises are beneficial for yoga beginners but also have challenges for more experienced yoga practitioners.

Andreas 'Ramdas' Gies

Ramdas has joined his wife in her yoga practice and practices himself for some years. He is also a yoga teacher in the tradition of Swami Sivananda. Even while he still worked as an IT consultant he has taught yoga whenever his time allowed it. In Rio de la Miel, he teaches yoga for beginners and meditation.

In his job he has noticed again and again the positive effects of simple yoga and meditation techniques facing the day-to-day job challenges: whether it is just a more relaxed state of mind in the face of the daily challenges or finally the need to acknowledge and respect everyone met in business life as an equal human being - yoga teaches how this can be achieved and is today more important than ever.

Driving directions from Nerja

  • Following the N340 from Nerja towards La Herradura you will pass some beautiful bays.
  • Pay attention to the kilometers-signs on the N340. At 298.5 kilometers, you have to get onto the small road up to Rio de la Miel.
  • Directly after you have turned left you will see a sign to your right “MA-6102” and “Rio de la Miel”. Above you will see the highway.
  • Follow the road uphill and you will pass some Fincas. The “Finca Los Colmenarejos” on the left-hand side is one of the most prominent.
  • After 4 kilometers, you will see this sign on the right-hand side and you have to turn left shortly after that sign.
  • This is the turn you have to take. If you have not turned left at kilometers 4 you already went too far on the original road.
  • Follow the street for another 4 kilometers. Then you will pass this section where the road turns right after the sign.
  • Directly after the right turn you will pass a small stream and directly after turn left for the last 300m to Rio de la Miel.
  • After about 100 meters, you will have a nice view on Rio de la Miel to your left.
