The Posada is a 16th-century building stylishly and exquisitely decorated in a contemporary style. The studios have en-suite bathrooms, kitchen, terrace, underfloor heating and air conditioning, a television, and Wi-Fi. There is a library, a garden with a pool (and a lemon tree), and on-site parking. This is an intimate family-run place. The second-afternoon staff speaks fluent English, Dutch, and Portuguese as well as Spanish. Situated in the town center, it is just five minutes walk from the yoga studio.
This hostel is a good choice if you are looking for affordable single-occupancy and are happy to use the local public facilities. It has two pools (open from June to September). The Hostal offers clean, simple, and attractive rooms with en-suite bathrooms, a central heating and air conditioning, and a television. All have windows, some have balconies. The Hostal is situated in the town center within a five minutes walk from the yoga studio.
During this retreat, your body and mind will heal themselves after being provided with optimal conditions. You will unleash yoga's full therapeutic power with the intensive bespoke yoga program tailored just for you. You will get full assessment, guidance, and support within small groups of six participants. This event is run by J. Manuel Ponce, a yoga teacher and trainer and UK registered osteopath and medical acupuncturist.
You will begin with a two-hour yoga class. You will enjoy dynamic movement to warm up and dispel inertia giving way to sustained postures to release stress and tension. A second session of guided meditation and relaxation in the afternoon will further deepen yoga's healing and transformative power. As a conclusion of the week's activities, you will get a 20-minute personalized home-program with two weeks of online support.
One-on-one yoga coaching, body therapies, and acupuncture will be available as additional activities for an extra cost. There will be an afternoon off allowing you to totally rest or explore the city and environs, go on excursions or self-drive.
Manuel started teaching integral yoga in 1980 in the London Sivananda Ashram where he was resident until 1985. He studied full-time at the British School Of Osteopathy, underwent further yoga-teacher-training with Sunra Yoga and most recently has qualified in medical acupuncture. He is a member of the General Osteopathic council and currently practices and teaches in South and East London as well as Trujillo in Spain.
This retreat will be held in Trujillo, Extremadura in Spain. The city of Trujillo in central Extremadura houses a population of only 9,800 inhabitants. Its size belies its cultural and historical 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, this castle is a place of beauty and tranquility, a place for relaxation and healing. Whether your preference is for activity or letting go and relaxing, for town or country, Trujillo has it all.
During this retreat, you will enjoy a daily lunch and dinner. Spanish Yoga Retreat prepares freshly cooked vegetarian meals which by default include eggs, cheese, and other dairy products and nuts. Special diet requests, including vegan meals, are available upon request. Spanish Yoga Retreat also has a strong preference for locally grown organic produce and will buy directly from the grower when the option is available.
During this retreat, you may also visit UNESCO World Heritage sites in the provincial capital of Cáceres, Roman Merida, and the mountain shrine of Guadalupe. You may also explore Extremadura's pristine landscapes at UNESCO biosphere reserves Monfragúe and Geoparque Villuercas for breathtaking views, hiking, and bird watching.
