Tanya Love fell in love with yoga in India where she was captivated by the country and its intensity. Several of the classes she teaches are described as Scaravelli-inspired yoga and Vanda Scaravelli championed yoga as self discovery. She worked with Krishnamurti and her approach is infused with his philosophy. She is currently studying a form of body psychotherapy called Hakomi which is described as "mindfulness-based assisted self discovery".
The retreat center, Valle De Vida, is about 40 minutes away from Malaga, home of the Picasso museum. Nearer still is Alora, a typical whitewashed Andalusian village. Ronda is also accessible by train.
The price of the retreat includes daily meals. The meals are delicious, homemade, and vegetarian. Special dietary requirements can be catered for. If you would particularly like to have some meat or fish over the holiday then please let Tanya Loves Yoga know. If this is a popular option, it can be made available.
During this retreat, you will have a day off to either go for an excursion day or you can take the day to yourself. It will be decided when you are there whether you would prefer to enjoy a picnic at the lake in the mountains for some wild swimming and a visit to El Chorro Gorge, or if you would prefer to explore a local town or village.
Spa treatments are available at an additional cost.
