3 Days Nature Connected and Family Friendly Yoga Retreat in Cantabria, Spain

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

Nature Yoga Retreat Spain

Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered 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 and self-healing. Accomodation is cozy and simple, food is delicious, right from the garden where we grow our own vegetables and offen 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 where it can accommodate a maximum of 8 people and where also children are welcome.

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. During the autumn season the yoga might take place in the yoga studio in Solares close by.

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 or Reiki session or a private yoga class on to practice specific postures or simply deepen your practice. During the Autumn Season, you can find a cozy place by the Swedish oven to read your book.

There is a kitchen available for you to prepare your lunch if you spend the whole day on the site. At 7 p.m., you will meet again for the second class of the day which is more relaxing and stretching (Yin yoga and Restorative yoga). After a delicious and healthy dinner prepared in community, everyone might just sit together and watch the sunset or invite you to sing some mantras together.
