Take the gift of relaxation on our nature and hiking yoga retreat.
Where the Parque Natural of the Sierra de Grazalema rises from quiet rural byways like an apparition and the natural world takes over, find yourself enticed into wellbeing. Where great buttresses of rock silhouetted against the clouds soar above a forested landscape tinged with green, feel the vitality of this area even when the rest of Andalucía turns yellow under the Spanish sun. Deemed a Unesco Biosphere reserve since 1977 this land is one of the best places to hike in Southern Spain.
The Sierra de Grazalema and whitewashed villages serve as the gateways to our Yoga Retreat Center which hosts some of Spain's prettiest mountain scenery. Our retreat center is settled in this picturesque land of diverse terrain with its narrow passes connecting the villages over high mountain ridges.
Being between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, this dynamic area is home to unique plants and animals and has a slightly tropical microclimate. On the same day, there can be warm sunshine, clouds, or rain and directly a return to warm sunshine. From fascinating historical stories of the surrounding whitewashed villages to Neolithic tombs, a visitor to this province can do yoga in the morning, explore serene hiking trails, cool off in one of the five outdoor swimming pools with views of the Sierra, taste local foods, and finally sleep in luxury accommodations with the silence of the mountain.
The accommodations are rooms in villas with views of the mountain, air conditioners, and heaters and there is wifi inside all the buildings.
If you´re looking for a mountain and yoga vacation, this is the place for you!
The villas, gardens, walking paths, and swimming pools that make up the Nature Reserve yoga retreat center are nestled under an escarpment and have a panoramic view of the Sierra Grazalema mountains. Fresh clean mountain air fills a visitor's lungs with every breath. The Andalusian sunlight illuminates the natural landscape and olive trees that dot the mountainside. One can hear the soft chirping of birds and the occasional bleat of goats and sheep that roam the lands outside of the retreat center. Just being in this place of stillness brings a sense of peace and wellbeing like no other.
The hiking tour takes yoga retreat participants on paths around the mountain, up to the breath-taking view of the whitewashed villages and/or to the Giant Dolmen. From the Neolithic period, the magic of the Giant Dolmen takes us back in time and reminds us of the everlasting health of a land where people have resided for thousands of years.
Yoga shala with 52 square meters can serve up to 25 participants.
