4 Days Ashtanga Yoga Retreat in Andalucia

  • La Casa Del Daire, D47 La Alqueria, 29195 Comares, Spain


Rejuvenating Weekend Yoga Holiday in Spain

Yogatone is based on a style of yoga known as Ashtanga. It is a flowing form of yoga that builds core strength and leaves the body feeling strong, supple and centered and gives your mind time-out from the stress and strain of daily life to enhance your mental well-being. The practice focuses on the breath, core strength and a sequence of postures which warm up our body. A warm body is more flexible and so joints and muscles are mobilized without stress.

This wonderful yoga holiday will take place in a converted idyllic Andalucian farmhouse in a beautiful area surrounded by orange trees and olive groves. It has space for 8 guests, 3 twin rooms and 1 double. Further accommodation can be arranged nearby for larger groups.

One twin is located in a delightful annex next to the house and has its own washbasin and toilet. The remaining rooms are in the main house along with two shared shower rooms / WC. The yoga studio has been purpose built and offers space for practice inside or outdoors on the terrace with its magnificent views.

Only one hour from Malaga, deep in the Andalucian hills and olive groves, the retreat will provide you with the perfect sanctuary where you can stay and practice yoga, overlooking the stunning mountains close to the Mediterranean.

    "Had a fabulous four days with the wonderful Les in the hills below Comares, Spain. Les was the perfect host, the food was excellent, the rooms very clean and lovely, and a massage with Julie was the icing on the cake. We did yoga twice a day, often on the terrace overlooking the hills. All in all it was a wonderfully chilled four days which I would highly recommend. Sorry it's taken me so long to review!"

    "Yogatone Andalusia is set in amazing scenery, Les makes you feel at home and the rooms are very comfortable. You can't get bored looking at the scenic mountains, the peace and quiet is wonderful with no traffic/plane noise, the only noise you get is the Cicadas/birds and the occasional goat. The yoga is great to start the day and later to challenge yourself. A good way to keep up your practice and I highly recommend a massage with Ruth (I hope I have her name right, I was quiet floppy and sleepy) . Another plus is the helpers, Jackie cooked for us some delicious food with wonderful healthy and tasty meals. Judy made sure our rooms were spotless and insect free - the locals in the village are so welcoming and it was a pleasure to meet them all. Thanks for a great break from my busy life, feeling stretched and relaxed."

    "Just a great way to recover from everyday life. The yoga is so restorative and the surroundings - pictures don't do it justice. Think big sky, fresh air, orange groves and olives. The local foods are wonderful. The massage is a must. Overall, serious value for money and congenial company. Even if you are not a dedicated yoga bunny...go anyway, all levels are catered for and Les will always make his guests smile."

    "Beautiful and relaxing environment which made this yoga trip thoroughly enjoyable. Les is not only the perfect host but a great yoga teacher as well, nothing was too much trouble. The property and annex are beautiful and spotless and would put many high class hotels to shame. Great food, great massage, very friendly group! Loved it so much we are already thinking of going back next year."

    "I was in a group of 4 with varying standards of yoga, but we all benefitted immeasurably. The retreat is set on the mountainside with fruit and nut trees all around, so as you take your classes (in the studio or on the terrace) the beauty of the surroundings all add to the experience. We were exceptionally well looked after, cared for, relaxed and stretched to perfection over the 4 day break and returned home feeling wonderfully tranquil. Now tell me who couldn't do with that..? Thank you Les and Clare."

    "Thank you for a wonderful four days here in your magical spot. Your way of teaching yoga is so refreshingly down to earth and real - I will continue to practice, and be without expectation. I can think of no better way to have been introduced to Spain and re-connected to Yoga! Hope to be back and best wishes."
