    The hotel where you are staying is a gem of architecture and a beautiful combination of style, comfort, and history. Not only is the retreat center designed with all the essential elements of modern comfort, it also reflects a harmonious balance between the original stone architecture and contemporary aesthetics.

    All around the property, you will be enjoying the mountain views of the Catalan Pyrenees, a deep sense of tranquility and peace that are a truly a signature of this idyllic haven. It is a beautiful combination of elegance, nature, and ease that makes this place a perfect getaway for complete relaxation. Double and single occupancy are available.

    The stunning exterior of the hotel includes an infinity heated pool surrounded by a sunbathing and relaxation area and vast green spaces that overlook the valley and woods.

    The uniqueness of this nature retreat is that it combines in itself an exceptionally high standard of both accommodation and service with a warm, welcoming, and relaxed atmosphere where you can just come as you are and wear your yoga clothes, bathrobe, or a fine dress feeling like you belong in this picture. This is what Sparkling Yoga loved while visiting the property, and cannot wait to offer this experience to you.

    During this yoga retreat, you will have an opportunity to explore a variety of approaches to Hatha yoga, from the Elemental Vinyasa flow based on Ayurveda, to peaceful Hatha with a therapeutic or restorative quality. Some of the sessions may include the elements of Yin yoga, myofascial release, pranayama, and meditation. A part of the program is yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) meditation which has an extremely restful and restorative effect.

    All sessions will be adapted to the group and modifications of the poses will be offered to cater for all participants and to ensure that everyone is receiving the benefits of the practice and the individualized attention. You will be practicing outdoors as much as weather conditions permit, and for cooler days, you will be using a spectacular yoga shala.

    The best time to arrive would be Sunday afternoon as the program starts after dinner, or you can arrive in the morning and spend the day in Barcelona before heading to the retreat. The best time to depart is Thursday late afternoon or evening as the program finishes around 11 a.m. on Thursday.
