      "I would rate the Lucia Yoga retreat as 10.I found everyone very friendly and Antonio, Patricia and their team were very helpful and pleasant hosts. There was a good balance of yoga, hiking and downtime and the food was healthy and delicious! The yoga is challenging for those who want it to be and gentle for those who want a more relaxed practice. The venue for the retreat was perfect- quiet and beautiful. I would definitely recommend this retreat! Thank you for a brilliant weekend : )"

      "Mi retiro de yoga organizado por Lucia Yoga en El Puerto de Santa María cerca de Cadiz fue estupendo. El sitio elegido encantador, la organización y la atención a cada persona fenomenal, el ambiente del grupo internacional muy amistoso. Aprecie tambien cambiar de instructor para cada clase, el tiempo libre para disfrutar de la playa o elegir su propia actividad, la comida vegetariana muy sabrosa y muchas otras cosas. Quiero participar en el próximo retiro que Lucia Yoga organizará el año que viene."

      "I participated in a three day weekend yoga and hiking retreat and really loved it. This was my first time going on a retreat, and I havent been practicing yoga for very long, but Luciayoga were very welcoming and catered for all levels. Everything was organised very well, and it was the perfect balance of yoga, hiking and relaxation time. The vegan food was really excellent too. There were lots of small touches, such as flowers and a welcome note in the accommodation, that really made it a beautiful experience. I would highly recommend to others."

      "Firstly I'm very sad to be leaving this very tranquil mountain. I'll miss the views the smells and the sounds watching the Lizard running around and the stillness at times I felt here. I'm leaving feeling totally balanced. The venue and Patricia and Antonio had all our needs meet and welcomed us with open hearts amazing. The food was amazing plenty of it and as fresh as I've ever eaten I'm feel amazing these retreats are truly life changing if you go with an open heart and mind and embrace. Love and light.. ps I know there's a lot of amazings but it truly was."

They were so helpful from the very first moment until the very last, always doing everything that they could to make sure that everyone had what they needed to feel happy and well cared for. We used the retreat center just outside of Malaga and it was so beautiful... we got to walk through the orange trees and enjoy amazing views of the mountains surrounding us and we walked to and from the yoga shala each day!"

      "Las instalaciones son geniales, pero no tanto como el equipo humano que hay detras de lucia yoga! Cuando se hace algo con verdadera pasion se nota en el ambiente. Y con los retiros de lucia yoga sin duda se respira la pasion volcada por parte de los organizadores y profesores que colaboran. Es un proyecto en el que merece la pena confiar tu retiro o vacaciones"

      "The venues are great, but not as much as the team that 's behind lucia yoga! When you do something with true passion is evident in the environment. And with yoga retreats lucia certainly the passion overturned by the organizers and teachers who work breathes . It is a project worth trusting your retirement or vacation."

And thank you for helping to YogaRuka to make their dream come true!. You guys are amazing in what you do. I will definetly recommend to anyone to work with guys. "

      "The first retreat of my life with Lucia Yoga has been an unforgettable experience. It was in the Gastor, in the Algarrobales farm nestled in a natural park of Sierra de Cádiz. When you arrive you in awe of the beauty of the site. Lucia Yoga team welcomes you and you spread your optimism and joy. And you feel at home. The comfortable and spacious facilities surrounded by spectacular views. Yoga classes with physical exercises and meditation make you feel peace. The teacher transmits knowledge masterfully. The menus are made vegetables, fruits, nuts, real good and varied. You feel full yet lightweight. The organization and schedule follow an order and a perfect time to fit all activities, meals and social gatherings, without strain, allowing time to do everything calmly. For me the co-existence of these days with a group of friends, with the same concerns and desire to participate in all with kindness and affection, was a novelty that I will repeat whenever you can. Thanks to Lucia Yoga team and congratulations for a job well done."

The accommodation in small apartments with kitchen, bathroom ,and terrace overlooking the lake was spectacular. The road to the yoga room is a walk in the middle of nature. The room is super cool and classes are amazing. It was a course on Hatha yoga and it was great. I would go to the next!"

      "We went to a retreat near Granada and it was a very special weekend. Every morning we had meditation and yoga classes, which left me feeling great for the rest of the day. We visited Granada, the Alhambram and Albaycin. These are very beautiful places. I already knew about them, but these are places you don't really get the chance to visit. In the evening we had again more yoga, a little softer this time, to end the day. It is a perfect location for combining sightseeing in Granada and healthy life! Great food! And the yoga room overlooking the super beautiful mountain, congratulations to Lucia Yoga!"
