Rustic Retreats' accommodation comes in the form of beautiful yet simple well-equipped bell tents, with beds and electricity.

Bell tents

Their beautifully furnished bell tents are simple yet sumptuous. With comfy beds and crisp, fresh linen, it’ll be a luxury glamping experience you’ll never forget! As you lay your head down, let the sweet scent of the nearby lemon and orange groves carry you off to sleep as you doze under the glorious, star-filled sky. A truly blissful way to end your day.

​Rest and relaxation

You’ll be spoiled for choice for ways to rest and relax. You could take a dip in their refreshing swimming pool, or lounge lazily in the hammock area while taking in the beautiful views. Why not pull up a sun lounger in their shaded terrace, and enjoy one of their many books or board games? And at the end of your day, after an invigorating workshop, you can head past the almond trees to their lovely wooden meditation cabin, with breathtaking views over the valley.

Bathrooms and showering

As a totally off-grid yoga retreat, they have lovely, solar-powered showers, or if you prefer, an amazing outdoor shower block, so you can literally shower under the stars!

Electricity and internet

They provide their guests with an internet connection, and the bell tents come ready with solar electricity.


Style of yoga to be taught

The morning practice will be dynamic and energetic Vinyasa Flow yoga. "Vinyasa" means "linking" which in this context means that the poses will be linked together in a flowing sequence, the movement will be linked with the breath and the mind, body, and spirit are linked as a whole. It is a creative and intelligent flow style with an emphasis on alignment and safety. Descriptive cueing and hands-on assistance will be skilfully interwoven into the practice to allow students to correct their own alignment, understand the mechanics of each pose and safely deepen their practice.

The evening practice will be Yin yoga to balance out the Yang energy of the morning. This style of yoga is slow with each posture supported with props if needed and held for several minutes. This style of yoga encourages stillness and introspection. Physically it stretches soft tissues which are otherwise untouched and allows us a deep energetic release.

Your Rustic Retreats journey

In the ancient yoga texts called the Upanishads, the five koshas are referred to as the veils which are created for us to examine, to know, and to transcend in order to lead the way back to our true nature, the self. Each day, in the beautiful hills of Spain, you will explore and become aware of the layers of your being through yogic practices such as asana, pranayama, meditation, and chanting. Each of the workshops is designed to deepen your understanding of the koshas so that by the end of the retreat you will be able to live fully and gracefully at every level of your being.

Your workshop program

Workshop 1 – Annaamaya Kosha (Physical body)

Each one of us is unique in our shape and size. This matters in terms of the asana (posture) practice of yoga. This workshop will be an opportunity to learn the best alignment of some of the more commonly practiced asanas in relation to individual bodies. It will also be an opportunity to learn how to modify postures for any injuries or ailments and will provide a solid foundation for moving forwards in your practice.

Workshop 2 – Pranamaya Kosha (Breath body)

Also known as the vital force sheath, it is influenced by the prana (life energy) that surrounds and permeates the body. The practice of pranayama helps to keep this life force energy flowing freely. In this workshop, you will learn what pranayama is and practice various techniques so that you can connect to the energy within and release your own vitality. You will also explore inversions (inverted L/shoulder stand/headstand/handstand) in this workshop to shake the energy upside down!

Workshop 3 – Manomaya Kosha (Mental body)

Just like the physical body has layers, the mental body also has layers with some thoughts and ideas being more influential and stronger than others. It is often these thoughts that form grooves that become deeper and deeper, creating fixed patterns, beliefs, and behaviors; these are known as samskaras. This workshop will be an inquiry into samskaras and an exchange of negative ones for positive ones. By practicing and living with intention you can shift samskara and illuminate the purity of your soul.

Workshop 4 – Vijanamaya Kosha (Awareness body)

This is the sheath that enables humans to make moral decisions and choices beyond instinctual reactions. Somebody with a healthy vijanamaya kosha probably practices the yamas and niyamas (yoga’s ethical guidelines - simply put, the yamas are things not to do, or restraints, while the niyamas are things to do, or observances). This workshop will be an introduction to Patanjali’s yoga sutras with an emphasis on the yamas and niyamas and how to apply them in life.

Workshop 5 – Anandamaya Kosha (Bliss Body)

Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep is a journey through the five layers of your being. In this workshop, you will experience a full yoga Nidra leading you from the grossest levels of your existence to the most subtle. It is worth four hours of sleep and it’s one of the best ways to traverse your koshas and reach your blissful Self.
