Rejuvenation of the body and mind starts with a diet of natural healthy juices. The fresh fruit and vegetable juices are very popular at this yoga retreat. Guests say the juices prepared are refreshingly tasty and very enjoyable. However, it can take some guests a little longer to adjust to a completely fresh and natural diet.
If this is you, it is suggested that you gently introduce yourself to juicing rather than the full 10-day detox. Many of the guests detox for just three or four days and eat a healthy diet the rest of their time during the retreat.
The juices are designed to work with your body, which is naturally detoxing, to give your body a well-earned break. With natural fresh juices, there will be the very best nutrients from your favorite fruits and vegetables in liquid form. Who would believe a mix of orange, carrot, and beetroot could taste so good? Detoxing helps to repair worn out or unhealthy cells and rejuvenate your body, cleansing the body of toxins, increasing energy levels and vitality, combined and in harmony with your yoga practice at the retreat, this will give a new level of vitality and well-being.
Yoga Retreat Spain will try to accommodate your dietary needs, likes, and dislikes. Vegan option, however, is regrettably unable to be accommodated. Drinking water is provided. Groups may vary and you may be the only guest. The host will keep any single guest company, should they wish, or respect their privacy for those who wish time alone.
Yoga Retreats Spain only asks you to wash up your own dishes after breakfast, as it can be taken at any time to suit each person. Yoga Retreats Spain respectfully ask you to wash up and tidy after eating or preparing any snacks, drinks, or any items of food you may have purchased during your stay, every day. This is to help keep the guest kitchen tidy at all times, out of respect for others.
After all other meals, the crockery will be taken away by the villa hosts for cleaning. This enables the hosts and you coordinate as a team, in order to move quickly together to the next activity, either walking or by car. The hosts are very much about family, teamwork, and sharing. Please note that you cannot expect for a hotel experience during your stay in the villa.
Optional activities in the summer months from June to September are kayaking and SUP boarding for hire from one of the local beaches, which is proving to be very popular. You may also try beach walking or a walk to the Cap D'Or, an eight kilometers walk to and from the villa with spectacular views.
You will need a reasonable level of fitness to climb the last one kilometer up the mountain path to the top. A drink at the beach café after the descent is the most popular activity to do after and before returning back into town.
Mini treatments are available locally in Moraira by appointment. For those who wish to have a treatment, to avoid disappointment, it is strongly suggested that these are booked at the beginning of the holiday as the studio gets very busy.
