Walking and Yoga Retreat Spain

Studies show that walking just 25 minutes daily can increase your life expectancy. Inactivity is the biggest killer of adults worldwide. The good news is that gentle daily walking improves your cardio-vascular health as effectively as working out and can lengthen your life-expectancy by as much as seven years. And with yoga and meditation offering comparable benefits it’s win-win. Join Spanish Yoga Retreat for a week of stretching out - stepping out - and chilling out - and feel like you’ve really had a holiday.

Retreat location

This retreat will take place in Trujillo, Extremadura in Spain. The city of Trujillo in central Extremadura houses a population of only 9,800 inhabitants, yet its size belies its cultural and historic heritage. Set on a high granite tor in the wild, mountain-ringed country, the city sits in splendid isolation.

Its 9th-century Moorish castle gives way to a labyrinth of shady streets and open squares housing the rich architectural heritage of nobility, merchants, and conquistadors, built for pleasure and good living as much as ostentation of power during Trujillo's long and colorful history. Today it's a place of beauty and tranquility. A place for relaxation and healing. Whether your preference is for the activity or letting go and relaxing, for town or country, Trujillo has it all.
