7 Days Nature Connected and Family Friendly Yoga Retreat in Solares, Spain

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

Nature 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 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.
