All instructors are certified by the Yoga Alliance and are constantly developing their practice to offer clients the quality and authenticity they deserve. Different types of yoga such as Hatha, Ashtanga, and Vinyasa yoga are practiced to achieve harmony.

The head instructor is Patricia Villegas (Parvati). She studied Psychology and later traveled to Asia and was trained as a Hatha yoga instructor in the Sivananda Center in Madurai, India. Patricia gave classes in the Ho Chi Minh Sivananda Center in Vietnam. Meditating daily helped her understand about the mind and human passions. She returned to India to experiment on other methods.

She went to Mysore where she became an Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga instructor and was lucky enough to study under Sraswati, the daughter of Pattabhi Jois at the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute. The experience gave her a broader view of the yoga discipline and all its possibilities and expressions.

She believes that Eastern philosophies not only give methods for controlling the body and emotions but also through yoga, body is purified, strengthened, stretched and make muscles and joints more flexible, assisting the blood to flow freely through the body clean and pure.

Yoga is a lifestyle that encompasses many aspects of daily life. Small habits build to improve practice and obtain greater happiness and wellbeing.

A private ranch of 132,000 square meters surrounded by olive groves, hundred-year old holm oaks, and aromatics such as rock-roses, lavender, thyme and verbena. The house is situated among a 12,000 square meter garden with a pool, surrounded by three natural parks.

    "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."

    "We went on a weekend retreat in Gastor in the natural park of Cadiz. It was very easy to find the site, there were signs along the way, Lucia Yoga indicating where to go. 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!"

    "I loved the experience. The rooms are lovely, rustic, in nature, and with mountain and lake views. The food was scrumptious, I could not believe what one can do with vegetables to make them into such tasty dishes. I felt lighter after yoga classes, and I loved that!"

    "I have never been in Spain before and it was the best way to visit Andalucia. I was travelling alone and there I met so many lovely people! I enjoy my holidays with nice weather, good food, and great yoga lessons. I love hiking and all the mountain sports, so in Grazalema you can do everything you want. I did hiking and rafting! Amazing!"

    "We went to a retreat very close to Granada. The rooms were very comfortable and the food, delicious. We enjoyed the yoga, the teacher was excellent! And we could visit Granada, which is a magical city. We were just 15 minutes from there, so we could visit everything. We even saw a flamenco show, the alhambra Palace, and we tried tapas!"

    "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!"

    "The house was incredible, a traditional Andalucian farm house very close to Ronda. Start the day with yoga and meditation and then time to visit Ronda or other white villages around. It was the perfect holiday and the best way to visit this area. And very affordable! I will come back."

    "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."
