"At no time of life is the love of excitement so strong as during the season of the accelerated development of adolescence, which craves strong feelings and new sensations, when monotony, routine and detail are intolerable". This beautiful programme has been designed for adolescents and parents, in an environment where their bonds together can both be strengthened and explored; yet equally loosened and expanded providing learning, nourishing, and fun-filled experience.
Cabana 1 is a gorgeous wooden cabana with a double bed suitable for a single person or couple. Standing on the cabin's exterior porch space, as you enter, the room's delightful wooden interior features ornaments and wall hangings collected from Africa and is completed by a private en-suite bathroom which is adorned with a beautiful mosaic antique sink and shower unit, all of which is attached to the cabana - ensuring comfort and ease.
The room has all amenities such as a fan, reading lamps, a collection of books to delve into, hangers, comfortable cushions, a vintage oak desk, a chair and of course a luxurious bed fit for a dreamy night's sleep.
Cabana 2 sits facing the cascading river below its porch. The double bed rests amongst the room's vintage wooden design. A private en-suite bathroom is adorned with a colorful mosaic tiled sink, stained glass mirrors and windows, and a powerful shower. Again, the room is a foreign oasis away from home.
Exotic ornaments and wall hangings collected from travels, give the room it's a positive presence. Again the room has all the necessary amenities such as a fan, reading lamps, reading materials, comfortable cushions, desk, and a beige soft arm-chair.
Cabana 3 comes with two lush single beds, looking out onto a mosaic piazza area which is adorned with two outdoor Indonesian artisan lounging chairs and table. Inside there is aged oak furniture - a desk, chair, and chest whilst a beside table nestle in-between the two beds. The shower room and toilet are a short walk up the garden, just past the pond and meditation area, where it is also an option to enjoy the outdoor shower by the bamboo trees.
Glamp in style in this beautiful, roomy and bright bell tent. A double bed is present with the option of two additional single beds to accommodate an additional two or three people, ensuring it is the perfect choice for a group of friends or a family. Soft carpets, rugs and vintage furniture grace this space. Fairy lights and a fan is available. It is also a short walk from the shower room and toilet.
Riverheart Retreats perfectly-crafted geodesic dome was handmade with love and affection and is tucked below the shala and the path on the way towards the river. The interior is decorated with hand stitched kaleidoscope fabric lining which gives a magnificent sense of imagination to this already interestingly-shaped dome with the sound of the river near-by, a night in here really does allow for a peaceful rest in nature.
Each day will include yoga and mindfulness workshops for teenagers, separate yoga and meditation classes for parents, group activities and three beautiful, healthy meals. You will also be venturing out for two half-day trips; to the beach, to a waterfall and natural pool laid upon the mountainside and finally to a nearby forest to explore the glorious surrounding nature. The days spent on-site and not on exploring on excursions will look something like this:
We will have two very adventurous, fun and exploration filled trips during our stay together.
Samm Short is one of Riverheart's creators and owners and also a fellow painter and long time student of Ian's. Fearless love and courageous expression are the two guiding principles that she tries to work from each day and that Riverheart has been founded on. For her, the practices of writing, painting, yoga, and meditation all seek to discover and express the same truth that love and joy are at the root of all things.
My first experience of Yoga came when I worked with an NGO in central India that taught & nourished underprivileged children through Yogic techniques. The compassion, tranquillity, maturity & integrity that shone through each individual child was unlike anything I’d ever observed before. This, combined with my own self-practice shows me that Yoga is a tool to create a better world and this is where my passion lies. As a teacher of classical Hatha Yoga, I focus on Body, Breath, Mind alignment. I also teach Yoga and Mindfulness to adolescents & children.
Set in the Valley of Oranges in the rolling Sierra de las Nieves, Riverheart has the perfect balance between countryside living and the ease of access of being on the edge of a town. Easy to get to, yet feels a million miles from anywhere once you're inside the stunning gardens.
