Feeling good in your skin from the inside out is the essence of vibrant health! The meditation, yoga, healthy vegan food enhanced with superfoods and the beautiful natural environment will empower you to get more strong and healthy in your body and calmer in your mind. The yoga and excursions are each day in alignment with the chakras, making this retreat a powerful inner journey as well. It will help you to ground yourself, be in your flow, feel your inner strength and power, connect with your heart, express your authentic voice and reconnect with your inner wisdom and guidance.
The retreat venue where we stay in three hectares of exotic gardens looks out to the soft folds of the wonderful Alpujarra mountains that lie south of the city of Granada and surround this place of peace. The morning yoga class takes place on the roof of the house under a beautiful pergola and the class begins with mantra singing accompanied by harmonium or guitar playing.
Afternoon yoga takes place in the garden under 500-year old olive trees and you can find yourself really sinking into complete stillness and relaxation embraced by the magic of the Alpujarras. All the rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean and are ensuite.
The vegan raw- and superfoods are healthy nutritious, delicious, nourishing and exciting, you can feel its restorative qualities and the zing of its colors in the first mouthfuls. On top of all this, you can also enjoy holistic massages, excursions to the waterfalls or a sunset at the beach.
You will be spending 10 days together near the village Orgiva in a beautiful retreat center, situated in the southern hillside of the Sierra Nevada. It has 2,5 hec. of green and fertile land, because of the old watering system created by the Arabs.
Here in the middle of hundred-years-old olive trees, oranges and lemons you'll find cozy and comfortable cottages. There is the main house with 4 bedrooms that offers single and double rooms and there separate self-contained furnished cottages which offer accommodation for 2 to 4 people. They have 2 bedrooms (each with single beds). 2 bathrooms, a living room, kitchen, and a covered porch.
We dedicate each day to the energy of one of the chakras, starting with the base. You will be gently taken into a deepening practice of yoga postures, meditation, and pranayama. It does not matter if you are a beginner or an advanced student. We have small groups and so there is lots of personal attention. Everyone can get deeper into awareness of there body, breath and being. Even when you have never done any yoga before then this is a great opportunity to get into a non-demanding practice at your own pace.
Indulge in an array of organic, raw and (when desired also) cooked vegan meals. We will show you that eating raw food can be a sensational culinary experience, that delights the palate and leaves you fully satisfied. You don't need much time or special equipment to be able to make delicious recipes, and we are going to show you how!
Healthy menus include delicious and nutritious protein-filled super-foods lovingly prepared. Our chefs will be sharing with you valuable tips and resources that enable you to take your SunFoodYoga experience home with you.This retreat is much more than a fine combination of yoga and delicious fresh raw food
