Cal Pau Cruset offer luxurious, stylish, and elegant accommodation. The beautiful farmhouse is made up of a main building and three smaller houses. As Cal Pau Cruset is situated in the wine region of Penedes and the area is famous for its cava (Spanish champagne), the houses are named after the various native grapes.

For this retreat, your yoga group has been given the gorgeous houses, Casa Moscatel and Casa Parellada. Each house has wonderful views of the vineyards and hills, with each house having balconies, kitchen area and lounge area, patios and gardens to chill and enjoy. There is a selection of uniquely designed rooms within the houses, from private double or single room and luxurious shared rooms for two to four people.

Yoga con Julie Yoga Holiday Spain Program

During this retreat, Julie will offer two yoga sessions each day starting from Saturday morning. The first class will be during the early morning from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. The evening class will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. On the arrival day, Friday, there will be one session from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The yoga sessions will begin with a gentle invitation to open up the body and then gently explore and deepen into different postures, breath, and meditation through the weekend. The yoga practice will be suitable for all, from experienced yogis to those new to yoga. All yoga classes will take place in the stunning sala, a room of 120 square meters with oak wooden floors, amazing views, lots of natural light through 12 arched windows, and central heating.

There will then be time during the day where you may enjoy your free time. You may immerse in the inspiring natural surroundings or you may rest by the pool, go for a walk, or take a bike and ride through the vineyards and forests or to the nearby waterfalls. On Saturday, there will be an option to put on your hiking shoes, take a picnic lunch, and walk as a group to a waterfall or lake and enjoy a meditation together.

The evening yoga session on Friday and Saturday will be a more restorative practice and the afternoon session on Sunday will be a gentle closing practice. There will be one period of silence between Friday evening and Saturday morning to support each other in arrival and to begin the invitation to be with your heart in gentle mindfulness.

Included excursions

On Saturday, there will be an opportunity to put on your hiking shoes, take a picnic lunch, and walk as a group to a waterfall or lake and enjoy a meditation together.


Julie Tucker
Julie is deeply inspired by the work of the late Vanda Scaravelli and teachers of her work, including John Stirk, Diane Long, and Liz Warrington, who work with the relationship between the spine, the breathe, gravity, and space to find freedom of movement and health in the body and mind. Julie's work and classes also acknowledge the meditation of yoga and include meditation practice.

Retreat location

The retreat will be held in Cal Pau Cruset, a beautifully and lovingly renovated traditional Catalan farmhouse dating over 150 years old. Situated among vineyards in the Alt Penedes, Spain, Cal Pau Cruset is located in the town of Torrelles de Foix, a region famous for its wines and champagnes.

The grounds accommodate many gardens and patios to settle down with friends you meet, a good book, or even a glass of wine or local cava. There is a swimming pool, barbecue, Jacuzzi, sauna, sunbeds, and a small bar. Not forgetting the organic vegetable garden and the resident pig “Lola”.

It is an inspiring, idyllic, and peaceful place where the owners have worked with love and care to create the perfect surroundings for students to come and fully immerse themselves on a retreat.

The calm and beauty of the vineyards and hills that surround the house together with the dedication of the experienced expert retreat team at Cal Pau Cruset make it a truly unique and perfect place for yoga retreat.
