Tracey Yoga Holidays Spain Program

The daily yoga sessions will be a mix of Dynamic, Restorative, and Yin yoga, pranayama and meditation. These are open to all, beginners and advanced practitioners alike. The morning practice will be Dynamic yoga. It will be energizing, focusing on the balance between strength and flexibility, setting you up for the day. The evening sessions will be more Restorative with Yin yoga and breathing practices to relax.

A beach trip is included in the price as well as an aromatherapy workshop. Several sandy, secluded, and unspoiled beaches can be found within approximately 20 minutes' drive from the venue, inside one of Spain’s largest national parks, the Cabo de Gata.

Retreat location

This retreat will be held in Almeria, Spain. The venue is in a peaceful location, but within walking distance of the lovely, traditional, local town which can be seen across the valley at the foot of the spectacular mountain backdrop. Almeria is Spain’s sunniest region and one of the least crowded. Its proximity to North Africa means that the area is semi-desert, dry and dramatic, with imposing mountains and a dazzling sea.

It has a wonderful, wild coastline which you will have seen more times than you think as it is used as the backdrop in many films including Indiana Jones, Lawrence of Arabia, and Sergio Leone’s famous Spaghetti Westerns!
