Refreshing Yoga Retreat Spain

Join Sally Parkes Yoga on their six-day yoga retreat in the mountains just an hour away from Granada, for a wonderful blend of Vinyasa Flow and alignment-focused Hatha yoga in the glorious Spanish sunshine. Set in the beautiful Andalusian countryside with panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada, in an area of outstanding national beauty and ecological diversity, this retreat offers a complete getaway from everyday life. You can expect a warm welcome from your host at La Hacienda, Tracie, and from your expert teachers, Sally Parkes and Chris Thompson. This retreat promises a relaxing break with twice daily yoga classes which are held in the outdoor yoga space or in the indoor yoga studio. There will be time for quiet contemplation in the meditation temple or in the beautiful grounds as well as time to get to know like-minded people. There is also free time each day to explore the local area, relax at our beautiful villa by the pool, watch the sunset, stargaze. The choice is yours.

Program

About the classes

The yoga classes are a combination of energizing Vinyasa Flow yoga with Sally in the morning followed by an alignment-based Hatha yoga session with Chris later in the day. Classes are suitable for all levels and those with little or no experience in yoga are also very welcome. They are also happy to adapt classes for those with injuries or conditions. Please let them know beforehand so they can plan accordingly. Yoga mats, blocks, straps, and bolsters are supplied by The Hacienda.

Vinyasa Flow yoga

Sally’s morning classes will be an energizing blend of Sun Salutations, standing postures, twists, and supported back-bends. The class will be flowing and invigorating with the aim of generating heat and strength within the body whilst increasing flexibility. Invigorating, but fully accessible for all.

Hatha yoga

Hatha yoga aims to relax and lengthen the muscles and can ease aching joints, especially the lower back, which in turn helps to bring balance to your body. Chris will focus on correct alignment of the postures during these classes to really help to maximize the benefit of this gentle, full-body practice.

Please note: You are very welcome to pick and choose which classes you attend, there is no pressure to participate in all the sessions.

During your stay, there will be morning and evening yoga classes held each day, all of which are optional. Classes are suitable for all levels including beginners - please let them know upon booking of any injuries or medical issues that may impact your yoga practice. Schedules can be subject to change but a typical day will include the following (Please note that the two main meals are large meals and there is fruit, yogurt, cake, and snacks offered throughout the day).

Retreat location

The surrounding area of the Sierra Nevada is stunning. Please note that the average temperature at this time of year is 27 degrees Celsius. The Hacienda is just eight kilometers from the town of Montefrio, which has been declared a town of historical and artistic interest - with its striking setting, friendly residents, and beautiful churches this town is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon.

Nearby there is an intriguing archaeological site from which numerous artifacts indicating early human settlement have been recovered. Slightly further afield is UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Alhambra Palace overlooking the Moorish city of Granada. The Hacienda is ideal for walkers, hikers, and cyclists who can step out the door and begin their exploration of the area on the many tracks and paths that pass by the villa. Nature enthusiasts will love the variety of landscapes, birdlife, and wildflowers in the area.
