Ashtanga yoga

Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic, structured, and intelligent approach to the practice of yoga, and is comprised of both practical and philosophical components. The practical portion has been traditionally taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in two ways; Mysore style and led class. In the Mysore class, new students are instructed individually, and taught small amounts of a sequence of poses that increase each day according to the capacity of the student.

When practiced in a consistent manner, this method of yoga will strengthen, purify and align the body, steady the nervous system through even breathing, and give equilibrium to the mind. The led class is the more typical style yoga class that is offered in the West, where the teacher instructs the group together, leading the class through the 48 postures of the primary series.

Hatha yoga

This is a more restorative, softer form of yoga, Hatha yoga refers to the practice of bringing balance to the two main energies in the body-the energy of the moon and the energy of the sun. Ha means sun and tha means moon, this is a translation from the Indian Sanskrit and refers to the balance of day / night, male / female, yin / yang. Hatha yoga is a powerful tool for self-transformation. It asks us to bring our attention to the breath, which helps us to still the fluctuations of the mind and be more present in the unfolding of each moment.

Vinyasa yoga

This is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling. Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like, which explains why it is sometimes referred as Vinyasa flow or just flow. The harmony between breath and movement will give you strength, grace and freedom.

Yin Yoga

A yin yoga class will help you to relax while you stretch the connective tissue and the joints. During a yin yoga class, you'll hold poses for much longer than you would in another yoga class (3 - 10 minutes at a time).

    "The Yoga Retreat of Erik and Migui was a great experience! I enjoyed the great variety of yoga positions and the good energy of the teachers. There was good explanation and personal attention for the advanced and less advanced students. The food was such a surprise: great variety and taste, taking everybody´s diet into account. The location is beautiful and quiet and offers both the possibility to be on your own as well as to enjoy with the other students. When I got back home, too many people to ignore it told me I looked relaxed and radiant. Thanks again for the great days! I’m looking forward to coming back."

    "I had a great time with Migui, Erik and the other participants at Yoga Retreats Malaga. They are such warm, kind, generous and fun people to be with and I was really well treated throughout my stay. I especially enjoyed the challenging yoga practise with Migui, who pushed me with just the right power and I found that I can actually deepen the asana much more than I could have imagined. I have also enjoyed very much the deliciously vegetarian meals made by Erik. He cooks amazingly and everything tasted so delicious and fresh. I could feel he loves cooking and I am sure his special ingredient is love. The place was fantastic: spacious garden with lots of plants and flowers, big swimming pool overlooking the ocean, spacious and clean room, easy access to the centre of the town and so on. I will never forget the feeling of doing yoga in the garden looking up at a such blue sky! It was a very hands on retreat and I highly recommend to those who are considering participating!" website, edited

    "This short retreat of four days of yoga was a super super holiday! Erik and Migui treated us like family. Such wonderful people and such a nice environment. We stayed at a very nice compound. We woke up with the sun in our room and the sun on the table filled with the best breakfast anyone can get, prepared by our chef Erik. He really inspired us to eat healthier food. It all looked so colorful. In the morning we received excellent teachings in Ashtanga yoga practiced by Migui. Feeling full of energy for the rest of the day. During the whole stay we received loads of warmth from both Erik and Migui, and from the fire place of course. Then there were also the very joyful flamenco lessons from Asami. She is such an amazing dancer and a good teacher! Only watching her showing us what to do was a great great pleasure. The combination of Flamenco and yoga is very stimulating."

    "Thank you so much for this experience, it will keep me warm inside remembering these days."

    "This yoga retreat was a most wonderful experience from the very beginning when I booked the retreat until the end of the stay - and even beyond! My questions before coming to Andalusia were answered in a kind and attentive way and I felt very welcome. Upon arrival, we were picked up at the airport and then taken to a little paradise at the cost – the surroundings are simply beautiful, with a great view to the sea - an awesome place to practice yoga. Miguidet and Erik are really lovely and amazing persons - they were caring, friendly, open, professional but never distanced. We were a group of six very pleasant people and there was a great atmosphere with inspiring encounters. The meditation and yoga practice was done in a careful and supportive way and Miguidet took gentle account of our different needs and limits when practicing the asanas. It was a perfect mixture of spiritual and down-to-earth attitude. I learned a lot and felt very empowered and encouraged to carry this experience forward when coming back home. Erik prepared the most delicious vegetarian food with lots of creativity, variety, and dedication – each meal a pure treat for the eyes, the body, and the soul! After the retreat, Migui and Erik even sent us recipes and information on yoga practice to take the experience to our everyday life which is most appreciated. Thank you!", edited

    "A fantastic week I had in a calm and beautiful surrounding. My room was really clean and amazing with everything I need, beach towels, shampoo, soaps and even a hairdryer. We were a nice group of 6 persons and the atmosphere was great even in the evenings. Erik put on the chimney and we were sitting around just chatting and enjoying the energy of the fire. He made also the delicious meals and shared some of the recipes with us, so i can make his amazing dishes myself. The yoga classes are challenging and rewarding. I loved the way Migui teaches her lessons, she is such a nice person and very friendly. Erik and Migui thanks so much for everything! Definitely coming back!"

    "I heard from a friend who came to Yoga Retreats Malaga last year, that I had to try this retreat because it is so different from the other retreats she had been to. So I decided to go, I was overwhelmed by the beauty of this place, with views towards the sea and mountains and a suburb exotic garden with pool, a real paradise! I been to many retreats the past 6 years but this rocks in all ways. "


    "They picked me up at the airport together with some other participants, so that was perfect! The yoga classes in the morning by Miguidet were amazing! She is such an inspirational and lovable teacher with a lot of knowledge. Our group were in many different levels, but for me as beginner was perfect, and also I could see other participants doing more challenging poses this made feel like I want to try more. Erik gave the morning meditation and that was great to start the day with, he also is an amazing chef and prepared nutritious and healthy vegetarian meals for us and because i cannot eat certain nuts, also he made for me always an extra dish, so I am really grateful for that."


    "Miguidet and Erik want you to give everything and more to make you feel happy and at home at their retreat. I can only say thank you so much to Erik and Migui for this great yoga experience i had a wonderful time and hope to come back soon."

    "What a fantastic yoga holiday in Spain I had! We went to Yoga Retreats Malaga at the end of November, and the weather was wonderful! The sun was shining every day, and it gave us the chance to practice yoga in the garden. Resting on the grass and looking at the blue sky was a very nice experience. Migui's guidance during the yoga session is still in my memories, and I try to continue with all the instructions now at home. I hope to be back next year, and enjoy the delicious meals from Erik, and the warming atmosphere."

    "I think the location is beautiful, is in the middle of this Andalusian village, and here you have a green oasis with a lots of trees and plants. The accommodation was really nice, the bathroom was very big. The food was delicious, I am not a vegan or vegetarian, but still it was very tasty, and it was always enough of fruits and nuts in between meals. The meditation was what I need it to understand and get connection with myself. The yoga was very good since I am a not experienced yogi, so it was really good for me to take it slow and in the evenings yoga to better understand different stretches, in the morning was more energetic but still slow enough for me to understand.I hope to be back any time."

    "I spent 5 brilliant days at Yoga Retreats Malaga in September 2015. I was a virtual beginner to yoga, only having had lessons for 4 months so I was a bit nervous as to whether I'd be able to take part properly. I needn't have worried because the personal lessons with a small group enabled me to achieve more than I would have imagined and I was introduced to different types of yoga. Migui encouraged me all the way and by the end of the week I felt I had really achieved my best and now I'm keen to go on and improve further. However, the yoga wasn't the only thing that made it such a good retreat - the food was gorgeous, Erik cooked us interesting, organic vegetarian meals - each meal was an absolute treat. As hosts I couldn't fault Erik and Migui. They operate a personal service in all ways and nothing is too much trouble. It is clear they want the guests to be happy and get the most out of their stay. To top it all off the venue is idyllic with views over Benalmadena and the mountains in the background. It has a lovely big garden full of interesting trees, animals (look out for the peacock strutting past your window) and a swimming pool! and surprisingly it is within the village of Benalmadena Pueblo, the old village, which is very pretty with cobbled streets and white houses. Thank you Yoga Retreats Malaga for a wonderful break."

    "Hi guys. So I've been back from my amazing break with you for a week now and I can say you've set me on a new path. I've found an ashtanga yoga class and teacher in Dumfries and had my first practice tonight. I am so grateful for the excellent tuition I received when I was with you last week. My new teacher was impressed with my form and said that I had a great starting point to go on become strong. The food, the teaching on meditation and your openness about how to use yoga in day to day life is brilliant. Thank you for amazing hospitality. I'll be back for sure next year with some friends. I am grateful to have been there with you both."

    "Relaxation, meditation, yoga and delicious vegetarian meals, I got it all at Yoga Retreats Malaga, be sure not to miss it!At the end of July 2015, I participated in one of the retreats. I received professional attention from Miguidet during the yoga classes, and I felt the effects in every part of my body after every lesson. It was an intense and incredible experience! I even learned how to stand on my head at the end of the retreat, which is something I never imagine I would do.In the morning, we got meditation sessions from Erik. It was very helpful to became relaxed in my mind and I could find the connection with my inner self. Also, the vegetarian meals made by Erik were very tasty, and he even sent me all the recipes by mail so I can make them at home.I highly recommend this retreat, because the accommodation was amazing, they have a big garden and a swimming pool, which is perfect for relaxation. The combination of meditation, yoga and the vegetarian meals, in a wonderful location, makes me really want to come back soon. Migui and Erik really took care of me. I feel happy to have come to this retreat, it was fantastic! Thank you so much Migui and Erik."

    "Miguidet's method of teaching was really impressive, she payed very close attention to everyone, and for me, as a beginner, I learned so much from her. Her patience and knowledge gave me everything I was looking for in a yoga class. Also, the retreat is much more than just a yoga venue, as I booked a private room and I got like a whole apartment with living room, king-size bed and a huge bathroom. It was just Amazing! The surroundings are perfect, it is a big green oases of peace and rest, with views that are breathtaking, you have to see it yourself, it was so beautiful and stunning. Also, there was a direct way to go into the village of Benalmadena, which is a typical Spanish small town with a lot to see and explore. One day we went to the beach and it is so close by and so beautiful, it was fantastic!Erik gave the morning meditation, very peaceful, which was a great way start the day. This was followed by the Yoga class from Miguidet, full of energy! what passionate people and so enthusiastic.The meals at the retreat where super tasty, all kind of dishes, all kind of quinoas, salads, soups and organic vegetables,seeds and fruits. We got every morning a big breakfast and every day different juices, with all kind of proteins, spirulina, hemp, wheat-grass and on top, a complete explanation about the health benefits and the way you prepare the juices and meals.When i went back home I got all the recipes from the meals and juices, lucky me :) now I make them myself.A big thanks to Erik & Miguidet for this unique experience, and I would highly recommend Yoga retreats malaga, it was Excellent, I see you next year!" website, edited

    "Yoga retreats Malaga is an unforgettable experience for me. The location , the yoga classes ,the meditation and the excellent food (all vegetarian dishes, varied at each meal) made my happiness for six days. I quickly relaxed by the warm hospitality of our hosts, Erik and Migui , their professionalism, their ability to listen and humor ! They are beautiful people who really love their work. Their words (spoken during yoga or meditation sessions) still resonate with me. Many thanks to Erik and Migui for these courses and their constant attention that allowed me to recharge my batteries in an idyllic setting."

    "I came to Malaga Yoga Retreats to relax, improve my yoga and enjoy the week. But what I've found was way more than that! It's such a nice place! I had a huge bedroom opened straight to a terrace, just beside the beautiful big garden where a swimming pool is. But that's not all! You will meet the peacock, his wife and their children, some little pony , a duck and the cat. This atmosphere was exactly what I needed to relax. And for the yoga, Migui is a perfect teacher! You will do your classes on the lawn (which is quite interesting for the balance...) twice a day, and an amazing vegetarian meal prepared by Erik will be waiting for you. I will come back, for sure!!!" Thank you for everything, it was an amazing week, really!!!"

    "The food was incredibly delightful! All dishes were vegetarian, and they have an amazing chef that will make you not want to ever leave.In the morning, we received a guided meditation by Erik, whom is very knowledgeable and has great wisdom. Moreover, he gives Ayurveda massages, which he learned in India! He really knows about the body and gives heavenly massages.Migui gave the Yoga lessons, she is so patient and kind and with so much knowledge, I came with pain in my hips and i left feeling rejuvenated. The accommodation was really good, i had a big private room with bath and shower, all kind of soaps and creams and even a hairdryer.The hosts really think about every little detail, which for me makes this the best Yoga retreat i ever been! a big 10+ for this Yoga retreat in Malaga-Benalmadena, and a big thanks for Erik and Migui an amazing couple with a real heart form the Yoga." website, edited

    "Migui and Erik are the perfect hosts for a retreat. They really care about your experience and think of everything so you can just turn up and relax. The yoga is excellent incorporating a variety of yoga styles. The meditation sessions were also excellent with a different kind each day. The food was delicious and has given me lots of ideas to try at home. The venue is beautiful, right next to the town which you can walk around it's pretty streets and it's a short trip to the beach. I feel totally rejuvenated after my time there." website, edited

    " For me, this was a last minute thing and I ended up booking with Yoga Retreats Malaga without really knowing anything as to what to expect. I've always like yoga a lot and I wanted to combine it with my holidays so a retreat seemed like the best idea. Once I arrived, I was surprised about how beautiful everything was. I had my own bathroom and it was very clean, it even had aloe body lotion!In the morning, we start with the meditation, which made me feel totally renew afterwards, perfect to start the day. The yoga was very good, we had an experienced teacher who really knew a lot, Migui, she was very patient with everybody, and I learned a lot from her. Also, the yoga was done in a garden overlooking the mountains and the coast, which was also a perfect place to have a relaxing time.During my free time, I went to the beach, and to the Paloma Park, it was really nice but my favorite extra activity was just been around in this nice village Benalmadena Pueblo, full of life and specially in the evenings.Also, I want to say thank you to Erik who made the vegetarian meals and how! He is very dedicated and he explains exactly what we eat, and how he combines different vegetables with the right spices. He was taking care about us all the time offering us all kind of delicious fruits, as snacks.Next time I come back and I will take some friends with me, because this is a retreat that I want to share with everyone!"

    " A random online search for a four day yoga retreat led me to the "yoga retreats Malaga" website. This retreat fully delivered on my main objectives to find more balance and forget about work and other stresses. The small number of the retreat participants meant lots of individual attention, an added bonus. Erik and Migui the retreat leaders are wonderful people who go the extra mile, offering airport pick-up and drop-off, adapting the guided meditations, two daily yoga classes and delicious vegetarian meals to the participants abilities, interests/requests. The retreat in Benalmedina is on a gorgeous property located in beautiful Benalmedina. It is a unique small oasis. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and there is full access to the wonderful gardens on the property. I am already dreaming about my next visit!"

    "I'm home safe back to reality but in a good way. Thank you from my heart to the both of you. I found what i was looking for - me! I will continue on my yoga meditation path and I'm going to alter my spare room into a room where I will find peace. I have ordered my wallpaper of trees, I am not as lucky to have such beautiful surroundings so I will make my own. I feel different. I am not going to look backwards, just forward now, life's for living. I wanted to give you both back something for all you have given me. The hand of light is symbolic to me, without light we wouldn't grow. Thank you for your teachings of yoga Migui, your patience and dedication, I am grateful. I have had the experience of being at peace with myself. I have had the best time and I will return to stay in the retreat. My love sent to you both. Continued success on your teachings. Thank you!"

    "The six days were too short for me, I made a lot of friends I progressed in my yoga practice enormous,and learned a lot about yoga philosophy from Migui and Erik.This yoga holiday was the best I ever did with people who really love what they do, that makes a big difference with some other retreats were I have been!The food was organic and fresh made every day, a detox without getting hungry, really good balanced . The walking meditation through the mountains with sea views was brilliant!I hope to come back in September and take some friends with me, because this experience was amazing!"

Your excellent way of teaching the yoga and guiding us in the meditation classes were perfect! We still use the tools you gave us to improve our practice. We can not wait to see you again.", edited

    "As a beginner in the yoga, I was really enjoying the lessons of Erik. He is kind and makes you feel at ease immediately. He knows exactly about the movements and poses and what it does with your body and mind. I could directly feel that he has a great knowledge about yoga, later he taught me a lot about Ayurveda, what he studied in India, so I am really greatful to know such an inspiring person.", edited
