(No availability) 3 Days Nature Connected Family Friendly Surf and Yoga Retreat in Solares, Spain

The Yoga River, Diseminado Anaz 1145, Solares, Cantabria, Spain

Surf and Yoga Retreat in Spain

The family-run Yoga River is a unique natural yoga retreat between the mountains and the famous sea of Cantabria honoring the land and the simple and conscious life and strongly connected to Mother Earth. Also called Dream Land by some, the Yoga River welcomes you on “the other side“. However, you want to define that once you're here. The scenic and refreshing river (Rio Pámanes) which you have to cross on some stones or a suspension bridge between trees creates a calm and undisturbed peace of land for you to disconnect from your stress-producing day to day life and to re-connect to nature, to create space for transformation, self-healing and pure joy.

Accommodation is cozy and simple, food is delicious, right from the garden where we grow our own vegetables and often prepared together with the guests. Enjoy daily yoga and meditation in the beautiful tent shala, unwind, and restore with the Thai massages and other workshops, explore the surrounding mountains, surf the famous Cantabrian waves or just relax in a hammock, all while finding authentic connection within an intimate, familylike community space that can accommodate a maximum of 12 people and where also children are welcome.

In the main house, you will find a regular bathroom, whereas the clamping tents and the cabana will use the outside showers (warm!) and compost toilets. Think green.


Daily schedule

  • 08:00 - 09:30 Ashtanga/Vinyasa Flow yoga with meditation
  • 10:00 Breakfast
  • Time for surf classes, going surfing on your own, hiking, cycling, relaxing
  • 19:00 - 20:30 Restorative/Yin yoga
  • 21:00 Dinner

Start your day with a guided meditation and an energizing Vinyasa Flow or Ashtanga class. Everyone will start from where you are at each moment of each day. Whether you are a long-term yoga practitioner or an absolute beginner, every class is designed to meet your personal flexibility in mind and body.

After a nourishing breakfast you can create every day the way you like it: just breath and relax, go surfing, hiking, or on a photo safari in the nature park, hang out at the river or treat yourself to a massage (Thai massage, quiro massage, foot reflexology) or a Reiki session or a private yoga class to practice specific postures or simply deepen your practice.

There is a kitchen available for you to prepare your lunch if you spend the whole day on the site.

At 7 p.m., we will meet again for the second class of the day which is more relaxing and stretching (Yin yoga and Restorative yoga) and often practices in the last sun rays on our lawn.

After a delicious and healthy dinner, everyone might just sit together and talk or we invite you to sing some mantras together sitting around a bonfire.

Retreat location

Beach, mountain and city access:

Close to the town of Solares (3 kilometers), The Yoga River is located only 20 minutes from the relaxed and clean city of Santander where you can walk the beach promenade or explore the city and its museums, and only 15 minutes from Cantabria´s famous surf beaches like Somo and Langre.

Together with the surf school friends, the Yoga River will arrange board rental or surf classes for you. The mountains that you can explore on foot or by bike start just behind you.

Enjoy a unique, relaxed vibe on this vast piece of (dream) land with huge lawns, a little swimming pool and playground, a kiwi plantation and a greenhouse, and with its true habitats: the chicken, a sheep, and a horse. The river that accompanies the retreat land is always there for you to refresh or to find meditative stillness.
