Is this yoga retreat something for you?

People come to Viva La Vida Yoga for a variety of reasons. Some people just want to relax and have some time for themselves in a beautiful place. Other people visit Viva La Vida Yoga because they have (or had) a difficult or stressful time or because they had an emotional period. But, this retreat is for everyone who wants to relax and who wants to feel stronger, more energetic, and more focused. It is for anyone who wants to calm their mind in a peaceful place.

Yoga and meditations

Viva La Vida Yoga's yoga retreat is suitable for all levels. The yoga sessions are created for beginners and for people who already have experience with yoga and / or meditation and who would like to deepen their practice. Yoga and meditation experience is certainly not required and the workshops are accessible for everyone. Viva La Vida Yoga adjusts the sessions and asanas to everyone’s level.

Yoga and meditation styles

Viva La Vida Yoga offers different styles of yoga during this week. In the morning, the lessons are more energetic and in the afternoon, there will be a SUP yoga (yoga on the water) or a Yin or Restorative yoga session. During this week, Hatha yoga, Yin yoga, Vinyasa yoga, and Kundalini yoga will be given and extra attention will be given to the practice of Yin yoga during the retreat. During this week, you will also do various pranayama’s (breathing techniques) and different types of meditations.

What kind of people are coming to Viva La Vida Yoga's retreats?

The visitors are both men and women of various ages and with very different backgrounds. Most people come alone to the retreat, but Viva La Vida Yoga also regularly has people who come together (couple, friends or family). Viva La Vida Yoga's experience is that every group has a great connection from the start of the retreat. A retreat is a great place to meet like-minded people and they have seen a lot of new friendships. But during the retreat, you have as well all the freedom to be by yourself and enjoy the beautiful spots in the tropical gardens. All activities are also on a voluntary basis. The most important thing is that you can relax and enjoy this special time for yourself. Viva La Vida Yoga chooses to work with small groups.

A day at Viva La Vida Yoga's retreat

When you wake-up in the morning, you walk outside en watch the amazing sunrise above the sea. You enjoy a fresh and healthy detox shake and some tropical fruit. You bring your yoga mat and get ready for a dynamic morning flow at the terras. After the session, the chef will welcome you with a delicious and healthy lunch.

After lunch time, it is time to relax. You jump in the beautiful and refreshing pool for a swim. After your dip, you can relax on one of the sun beds next to the pool and you can finally start in this book that you really wanted to read.

In the afternoon, you will leave for the beach to do a breathtaking SUP Yoga tour. You will also visit a cascade, little-hidden beaches, and coves. On the way, you will stop to do peaceful and calming SUP yoga session. Satisfied and relaxed, you return to the pretty villa. Viva La Vida Yoga's chef will arrange a really nice dinner under the stars. You can enjoy the sunset, the food, and the views together and finish the day happy and relaxed.

SUP board lesson and SUP yoga

Viva La Vida Yoga offers you this week the opportunity to follow a SUP board workshop. Note: if you already have experience with SUP boarding, you can increase SUP knowledge, or skip the workshop and stay on the beach. You are also going to make one or two beautiful trips this week. The SUP boards are very large, wide, and thick so they are very stable and you can do exercises on them.

Included excursions

  • SUP yoga tour along beautiful hidden beaches, coves, and waterfalls
  • Wonderful excursion to Rio Chillar (beautiful walk)

Retreat location

The most beautiful village in Southern Spain: Frigiliana

The villa is located in the mountains near the beach. You are within a walking distance from the beautiful village of Frigiliana. This village is so beautiful that it has been declared several times the most beautiful village in southern Spain! Frigiliana is located seven kilometers from the coastal town of Nerja. The village is built on a hill and from the highest point, you have a fantastic view of the white houses, the mountains of Almijara, and in the distance on the Mediterranean sea.

Frigiliana is one of the best preserved Moorish towns in Andalusia. All houses in the village are whitewashed and every year, the approximately 2200 inhabitants of Frigiliana are obliged to paint their house white again. It is a beautiful contrast with the red roofs and the beautiful colors in which the doors are painted. On the ground and on the facades, you will find hundreds of flower pots. And you can smell fragrant of lavender and jasmine everywhere.

The village has a small old center with narrow, steep, cobbled streets. Down in the village is the Plaza de las Tres Culturas. On this village square is a nice market on Thursdays. You will find the most delicious craft products, self-braided bags, nuts, bowls, and much more. Well worth a visit.

Nerja: Balcon de Europa

Nerja is also a beautiful village and worth a visit. The beautiful Balcon de Europa is 23 meters above the sea and from here you have a fantastic view over the sea, the mountains, and beaches of Nerja.

Beaches

From the beautiful villa, you have a view over the beaches of Nerja. Nerja offers some of the best beaches on the Costa del Sol. Like the nice beach Playa Burriana with its boulevard with shops, tapas bars, and restaurants. The small coves of Playa Carabeo, Playa Calahonda, and Playa El Salon are located close to the Balcon de Europa. The Playa El Playazo lies to the west of Nerja and has a long stretch of quiet beach with some simple chiringuitos, simple eateries right on the beach.

The variety of beaches in this area is surprising: sandy beaches, sheltered rocky beaches, and many more. They often offer fantastic views with crystal clear green-blue water for swimming or snorkeling, a pleasant mixture of sand and pebbles. Viva La Vida Yoga's favorite beach is the beautiful Playa Maro. This beautiful beach has been chosen a couple times as the most beautiful beach of the province and has bright blue water. Just past Maro, there are also a few beautiful quiet beaches.
