Bring some fresh air into your practice on this 6-day yoga and hiking retreat in lovely coastal Spain.
The daily yoga sessions are designed to complement the hikes combining the deep stretches of Hatha with the warming flow of Vinyasa and some deeply restorative and relaxing Yin Yoga.
Morning yoga sessions focus on simple flowing sequences to stretch muscles and open joints whilst synchronising your breath with movement so that your practice becomes like a calming moving meditation.
Evening classes are more restorative where you will hold postures a little longer using the breath to move deeper within and reconnect with your inner peace.
The first walk is an easy 13k guided route through quiet lanes and country tracks close to the hotel. You’ll pass country houses, crops of oranges, lemons, olives, figs and avocados before heading towards the sea and back to the hotel.
The second is a 4-5 hour hike on a mountain - the second highest peak on the coast. But don’t worry, you'll not be climbing to the top. Instead you’ll be walking around the mountain to enjoy the full 360-degree views across the neighbouring mountains and down to the sea.
There’s also a chance to do a 3rd self guided hike along the coast with maps provided by the team. All walks are of course optional.
When not hiking or doing yoga, the team has a few other optional activities you can join– there’s a guided bike ride, Spanish cookery workshop or, you can lay back and let the fantastic therapists pamper you with their soothing treatments and massages.
