Mindful Hiking and Yoga Holiday Spain

Mindful Hiking & Yoga Holiday Spain provides movement-based retreats where you can energize your body, relax and socialize as well. There are usually 5, a maximum of 8 people, and we utilize group-dynamic-based retreats in a nurturing and comfortable setting. "Social distancing" is possible with private rooms, separate outdoor dining, and open-air yoga. Slow down, resource, rejuvenate, and transform in Samadhi Lodge, nine kilometers from the beach in the beautiful typical Andalucian white mountain village Sayalonga. Samadhi Lodge offers creative Vinyasa, Ashtanga Yoga, meditation, hiking in beautiful surroundings, discovering the Spanish tranquility, and experiencing the oneness with nature. They offer stargazing, delicious and healthy vegetarian/vegan meals, inspiring talks, and more in a warm and personalized family setting. Yoga and hiking are the focus of this package.

Retreat location

Set amidst the Andalucian mountains, just a few kilometers away from the coast, Sayalonga is a cute, traditional white village where you can find typical local restaurants and some small grocery shopping. It is worth a pleasant 15-minute walk from the lodge (800 meters). The lodge itself is set on a steep hill, offering breathtaking views, and is surrounded by lush fruit plantations.
