6 Days Beach Meditation Yoga Retreat Spain

Granada, Spiritual Magnetism, Yoga Retreats Spain

Leave me in Granada in the middle of paradise where my soul wells with poetry. Give him an offering, my lady, for there is no greater tragedy than that of the blind man in Granada.

Anonymous

So goes the famous quote, allegedly said to a woman passing a beggar in the street in Granada. The beauty and truth of the phrase encapsulate everything about this majestic city. The city offers the visitor a dizzying variety of attractions, from its fun-filled streets (this is a large student city) to its reputation as a Flamenco hotspot, Granada offers both history and modernity. Opposite the Alhambra is the Albaycín – the old Muslim quarter of the city, and with its steep banks, winding streets and sharp turns, an air of the past still lingers here.

Our venue is near the capital of the province of the same name and the wider region holds a number of attractions. From the mystical Alpujarras mountains to the Sierra Nevada and down to the Costa Tropical centered on Salobreña, a visitor to this province can ski in the morning, have lunch in the city, then sit on the beach in the afternoon. Not a bad claim to fame.

While on your yoga retreat, spend an evening in old town for a night out where you can experience the nightlife of Spain, nibbling tapas and get the chance to see local flamenco dancers. Stroll around the Albaycín, exploring the old Muslim quarter opposite the Alhambra and stop at the Arab tea house Abaco Te for a journey in time with a tea and sweet local pastry, 1400AD style. Afterward, head up to the Mirador San Nicolás for a spectacular view of the Alhambra and the Sierra Nevada. Visit the Cathedral and Royal Chapel – resting place of the famous Catholic kings Fernando and Isabel. Take your time to explore the province visiting the Costa Tropical for the beach. Practice a variety of Yoga styles with different instructors immersed in the peace of Spiritual Magnetism of Granada

You can relax on the beach, go to the mountains, enjoy sightseeing and practice yoga on this all-encompassing yoga retreat in beautiful Granada Spain!

The focus of this retreat is on meditation and relaxation. The Hatha yoga classes focus on 12 basic Asanas and activating the chakras. These classes are designed to connect your body with your breathing to activate your chakras, bringing a spiritual focus to the practice, focusing on one aspect each day: balance, strength, flexibility, and inversions. With the different pranayama exercises you become aware of this vital energy and learn to harness it. There will be morning and evening 30-minute silent meditations. On Wednesday theres a special workshop on analyzing the 7 chakras, observing their qualities, colors, shapes, and characteristics. The goal is to apply this knowledge and awareness of the chakras to your yoga and meditation classes.
