A library of books on yoga, philosophy, meditation, and travel and a library of CDs with mantras, meditation music, philosophy lectures, and classical music is also provided for you to use.

Deluxe room (private and double room)

Retreats start on Sunday evenings and last till Friday afternoon. It is best to arrive Sunday morning and leave Friday early evening. The yoga retreats are suitable for students of all levels including beginners because all the classes are personalized for the students on each particular yoga retreat. Their aim is for you to move at your own pace, at a pace that you enjoy and feel comfortable at.

The yoga taught at their yoga retreat center uses movement and flow from one posture to another to bring the student closer in awareness to the breath and to give them the experience of meditation. Practitioners from all backgrounds should gain benefits of meditation and inner silence by practicing at Yoga Eco Oasis.

The classes involve postures that can put pressure on the uterus. Whilst the exercises help with your health at normal times, they may disturb the developing baby during pregnancy so if you are pregnant, Yoga Eco Oasis prefers you go to a retreat that will help you with the specific parts of yoga that are designed for pregnancy, such as breathing and hip opening.

Note that all the classes are all optional during your yoga retreats. Yoga Eco Oasis wants you to develop at your own pace and they want you to enjoy your stay. They want you to enjoy your yoga retreats as much as possible, to become healthy in mind and body, to learn how to relax and deal with stress, and to learn how to feel at one with yourself.

Yoga

Hatha flow yoga classes are twice daily on the outside yoga platform and combine traditional asanas (postures) in fluid sequences to unite the body and mind. This improves strength, flexibility, and balance, both physically and mentally, and helps remove stagnant energy and toxins. Through synchronizing movement with the breath, they bring awareness to each part of the body, expanding your consciousness and inviting the mind to find stillness. In creating this space and inner silence, you can begin to see yourselves more clearly.

Classes also include chanting mantras and practicing pranayama (breathing exercises) - an integral part of Hatha yoga which increases energy levels in the body and clears and balances the mind - when the breath is even and rhythmic, you are calm and in control.

Morning yoga will be more stimulating (Yang) - always starting gently but building to more dynamic transitions, longer held and stronger poses, and sun salutations. Evening classes will be more restorative (Yin) gentle yoga to focus on releasing tension and quietening of the mind and will include the practice of the calming moon salutation to bring balance to the day.

Over the week, your practice will develop as you open up, release, and relax the whole body. Taught in native English, classes suit a range of experience levels, always offering variations to suit the individual.

Meditation

Beginning with an introduction to meditation and its benefits, you will explore a number of meditation and relaxation techniques, providing release and ease in the mind and body to support the detox process. There will be guided and walking meditations and yoga Nidra (yogic sleep - a practice to bring you into a deep state of relaxation) to allow you to relax during the retreat and beyond. There are many benefits of meditation and in learning the techniques, you’ll also be able to continue beyond the retreat.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the practice of developing complete awareness and acceptance of what you’re doing, feeling (emotions and bodily sensations), and thinking. It is being in the moment. There will be mindfulness activities in the day including looking the teachings of zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, discussing, learning, and practicing mindful drawing in the peaceful surroundings of the retreat, helping you to relax and improve your health, both physically and mentally.

  • Jose Antonio

    From a young age, Jose was interested in mysticism and he practiced in different Western schools looking for something that would give him inner harmony that he was seeking. He practiced mind control and meditation for many years. Jose dedicated himself to reconcile nutrition with people's spiritual side because one can hardly balance his or her energy if the physical body is not properly harmonized. As a health advisor, he is also dedicated entirely to provide students the necessary path for the body to function properly according to their biological heritage.

  • Ella Williams

    With many years’ experience of practice and teaching, Ella, originally from England, has gained so much physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually from yoga and meditation. She now dedicates herself to sharing this with others. She trained with Shakti Mhi, the renowned founder of Prana Yoga College in Tel Aviv, and went on to teach around London at the yoga and meditation detox juice fasting retreat Moinhos Velhos in Southern Portugal. She now lives with her partner in Malaga, where she continues to teach in English.

This retreat will take place at the Axarquia region, which is situated in the easternmost part of the province of Málaga. Competa is an inland white village in the Axarquia, which is a small region, well-known for the Andalusian legacy of Muslim rule.

The location is a privileged tourist destination surrounded by olive groves, almond trees, and a 4000-hectare wildlife reserve in Sierra Almijara, just 15 to 20 kilometres from the main tourist attractions of the Costa del Sol, including the beaches (a nudist beach is very near if required) of Torre del Mar, the famous caves of Nerja, and within striking distance of Granada, Sierra Nevada, and other places of interest.

Healthy, delicious vegetarian, 100% organic meals will be provided using locally grown organic fruit and vegetables on every yoga retreat. The recipes used will be created by health and nutrition experts, including Jose and Anna, the founders of Yoga Eco Oasis. Wholemeal foods will be used, as well as foods low in saturated fat, during your yoga retreats. All meals are based on the principles of good nutrition, health, and good taste.

There is no meat or fish during the yoga retreats. All food served is vegetarian in the tradition of yoga and ahimsa (non-violence). The yoga tradition encourages a vegetarian diet during the practice of meditation, in order to increase the experience of peace.

Instead, your meals at the yoga retreat center will contain beans, nuts, avocados, tofu, seeds, and other vegetarian sources of protein, allowing you to build core, back, and other muscle groups that have been developed from practicing yoga postures by yogis for millennia. Other special dietary requests, such as vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, and wheat-free will also be catered for.

During your free time, you can go for a nature walk in the mountains and admire some of the stunning views here, as well as breathe in some of the lovely mountain air. You can also arrange a trip with the driver to the surrounding villages or to the local beach at Maro. There is also a nearby natural park that the driver can take you to if you feel like a nice walk one day. Most people, however, like to relax by the pool, read, chat to new friends at the yoga retreat center, or listen to quiet music.

Since Yoga Eco Oasis is situated in a strategic location on the Costa del Sol, they are able to organize excursions to various destinations nearby, being able to travel from the mountain snow in Sierra Nevada to the beaches on the Costa del Sol in just one hour. The following excursion proposals of interest to visitors are classified by the distance from Eco Oasis.

Caves of Nerja

Located on the slopes of the Almijara Mountains, five kilometers from the tourist resort town of Nerja and one kilometer from Maro, are a series of caverns called the natural cathedral of the Costa del Sol, with an area of 140,000 square meters and a maximum length of 700 meters open to the public. The most impressive feature is a huge central column 32 meters high in the Hall of Cataclysm, which is considered the tallest in the world and the world's largest stalagmite.

The show gallery is accessed by an eight-meter flight of stairs leading to the entrance hall (Sala de Vestibulo), where archaeological excavations took place and where some of the finds are now displayed. Work is currently under way to open new galleries.

Chillar River, Nerja

This is a tourist trail for hikers to enjoy the beauty spots and clear mountain waters running under their feet. A tour with alternating gorges where the river narrows and pools of water. The source of the river is over 1200 meters high on the Almijara mountain range in the heart of the natural park of the sierras of Almijara, Alhama, and Tejeda, at Piedra Sellada Mountain, although its main tributaries are 500 meters away at a location known as La Vegeta de la Grarna.

The Chillar River maintains a fairly constant flow throughout the year even during periods of drought and runs almost entirely along a deep gorge of dolomite marble.

Sierra Tejera and Almijar

This is one of the wildest places of the Axarquia region of Málaga, which is within walking distance. It is a protected natural park located in an unspoiled highland region ideal for hiking and biking routes. The natural park of Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara, and Alhama has an area of 40,662 hectares covering the mountainous landscape of the sierras of Tejera and Almijara between the province of Málaga and Granada, in a northeast-southeast direction towards the sea and the natural cliffs of Maro.

Spa treatments

Yoga Eco Oasis can offer massage and reflexology treatments. Treatments tend to cost around 50 EUR each. Please feel free to send an inquiry to Yoga Eco Oasis if you want to find out more.

Treasure Cave (Cueva del Tesoro)

This is in the municipality of Rincón de la Victoria. With many spectacular galleries, it is one of the three known marine caves in the world and the only one of its kind in Europe. The cave can be reached by bus, on a bike, or as part of a pleasant walk along the seashore. Dating back to the Jurassic period, the cave is carved in a natural limestone promontory forming a cliff on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Its name stems from a legend about an Almoravid royal treasure hidden there.

    Review by Sam Devine-turner from Great Britain

    Absolutely incredible experience

    PROS Pros: Everything was amazing. The accommodation was beautiful and in an absolutely gorgeous location. The food, lovingly prepared by Ana, was exquisite. So much flavour and so satisfying! And the yoga and meditation teacher, Claudia, was just incredible. Her classes were perfect, I feel like I have learned so much and became more flexible and more relaxed, and so much more in tune with the world and myself, each day that went by. Claudia was so friendly, and patient, a truly wonderful human being. And José Antonio was very welcoming and open, I felt very much at home here. I will definitely go back in the future!

    "Pasé una semana fantastica con José Antonio, Ana y Agatha en Yoga Eco Oasis. Tuvé la impresión estar en familia y aprendí millones de cosas además de relajar y de practicar asanas. Me encantó la práctica de yoga (hatha y kundalini yoga por los más "clasicos" y raja yoga e yoga nidra por los menos conocidos) como las clases de cocina consciente/vegana (nuevos ingredientes, nuevas maneras de cocinar). Y comé muy bien porque era todo muy rico! También tuvé "clases" de teoría sobre la alimentación vegana (porqué, cómo, consequencias de la alimentación típica, los medicamentos...) muy largas con explicaciones claras de José Antonio, de vídeos y de libros. Todos me ayudaron con el idioma para hablar y entender castellano, y también hablan francés así que no hubó ningún problema por esa parte."

    "Hello Anna and Jose Antonio, Thanks to you both for a fantastic course and the most welcoming atmosphere at Eco Oasis. After this, I can improve my life through yoga. We are now cooking something from the course every day and I am still eating a vegan diet. Before the retreat, I really needed inspiration for a healthy way to live and eat and now I feel so inspired to continue on this vegan/raw path .I’m really looking forward to your upcoming activities and workshops so we have a reason to visit Spain and Andalusia again."

  • Review by Joseph from United Kingdom

    "I stayed in Yoga Eco Oasis in mid-April for a week of Ashtanga and Vinyasa flow yoga, taught by the Eco Oasis fantastic manager, Carlos, and by the wonderful Ashtanga teacher, Carmen. I had an absolutely superb week filled with yoga, chanting, meditation, relaxation, and the most phenomenal food I have ever tasted! (Thanks Anna!) Carlos is so welcoming, and full of energetic positivity which quickly spread through the whole group, making everyone feel relaxed, comfortable and happy, All team are so hospitable and kind, and it is clear that they genuinely care about each and every person who visits the Eco Oasis. Thank you for such a lovely experience, one which I highly recommend to all!"

  • Review by Sonal from United Kingdom

    "My experience at Yoga Retreats Eco Oasis was one of ultimate peace and calm. The centre itself is beautiful and located in the mountains of Andalucía it was the perfect escape from the chaos of central London. Fran is an amazing teacher. As I was quite new to yoga and it was my first retreat, I was a little apprehensive but he put me at ease from day 1 and I never looked back! It was lovely to spend the week with such a great bunch of people too - all like minded but from very different backgrounds. And I must also mention the food - it was delicious!! I've never eaten so well in my life! All in all, I left Yoga Eco Oasis feeling great and with a new outlook on life. I enjoy Yoga so much more because of it and would recommend it to anyone."

  • Review by Heather

    "Thank you so much for such a fantastic weekend, I was very sad to leave so soon because we had such an amazing time. The best part for me was being around like minded people with whom i can be 100% myself which doesn’t happen very often in my life unfortunately. I always try to be very open minded and socialize with people who just don’t understand veganism but this weekend has taught me that I need to make more friends with like minded vegans and spend more time with people like myself. Overall the yoga retreat has taught both myself and James a lot and we will take everything we learnt and use it in our everyday lives. Its helped us change the way we live for the better, and hopefully it will help James to understand why I live the way I do a little bit more (hes getting there slowly). Ana was the STAR of the show and made cooking so much fun, we laughed and laughed the entire retrait which is the best medicine one could ever wish for so thank you so so much for the time we shared this week"

  • Review by Ales Stein

    "First of all I’d like to start with a big ‘Thank you’. I had booked my week in Cómpeta fairly spontaneously, only two weeks in advance. I’d had a bit of a rough time earlier in March and felt I needed to treat myself, to get back into shape and recharge my batteries. The Yoga and Cooking Class Retreat with Eco Oasis seemed just what I needed – and overall my expectations were exceeded. First of all, I thoroughly enjoyed with Yoga practice and all the cooking class, and the style and atmosphere in which they were taught. Our group was very small, and José Antonio took care of each visitor’s needs, which made all of us progress and develop day by day. It was so useful to have someone help you make constant adjustments and improvements. And what I learned has kept me motivated and helped me to improve my practice now that I’m back in London, both in class and at home. Food was amazing too! Anna was an absolute star! Every single dish was delicious. And it was impressive to see how much care went into it to make every meal special and healthy. I would have enjoyed my week with my group pretty much anywhere, I’m sure. But the fact that we were surrounded by beautiful mountains and had lots of sun and fresh air made the whole experience all the more enjoyable. I wish I could do it again soon, and highly recommend it!"
