Each day will begin with a morning guided meditation, followed by breathing work before a flow asana practice creatively and intelligently sequenced.
Throughout the week we'll work through many peak asana and requests are very welcomed.
Afternoon connect and discussion - this may sometimes occur late morning rather than early afternoon we feel
each day out as they arrive, full in the moment.
One evening we will have a yoga Nidra and sound healing session.
Evening practice (pre dinner) will be a slower more nurturing grounded practice
WHERE. . . .
Join me in this tranquil palm fronded oasis set in 30 acres of citrus and olive groves amidst the dramatic, semi desert countryside with imposing mountains and dazzling sea. This is the perfect spot to support peace, relaxation and practice – and personally one of my favourite retreat places ever! Finca del Alamo is on the edge of the Cabo de Gato National Park and Almeria airport is only 30mins away.
The venue sits in the semi-desert landscape amid lush gardens, its architecture echoing ancient Mediterranean civilizations.
It consists of the main house the ‘Finca’, which won awards in the 80s for its striking modernist design, and a group of converted traditional buildings, the cortijos. The cortijos are just a couple of minutes walk from the main house and next to the yoga studio.
There are shared social and quiet spaces and two eco-pools, one at the house and one with the cortijos.
FOOD & DRINKS
All meals are a delicious vegan spread served up buffet style, with lots of choice. The retreat space use lots of fresh local produce. Our breakfast is self serve fruits if you want a little something before practice. Post practice will be a substantial brunch. An afternoon snack and dinner every day.
Except one day off where will head into town for a meal together.
Alcohol won’t be served with the meals, but we can add some as group or you can order things individually.
WHAT WILL I NEED
Not much, just what ever you like to move in, your day wear, there's pool of course but it's really about letting go of what you need and just letting yourself be, so if you wear the same yoga gear every day then great!

HOW TO GET HERE
The nearest airport to Finca del Alamo is Almeria, about 30 mins away, which is served by a number of airlines from London and elsewhere.
I can arrange a group transfer (cost would be around €50 per person return, depending on numbers.)
It’s always great to gather as many of us as possible for the group transfer, so please let me know thoughts on flight etc and I will se who's arriving when.
ARRIVAL / LEAVING DAYS
The retreats will be ready for us by 4pm on our arrival day and we will plan to leave around or before 11am on our leaving day.
They can be a little flexible on this if we need to be.
Once your deposit is paid this secures your place and is non refundable (KIND OF), in the case that either you OR I manage to refill your space on the retreat I am happy to return this deposit to you.
2 months before travel 100% fee must be paid to keep your space, once paid this is non refundable unless again the space is refilled. If the fee is not paid I have to then offer your place o anyone waiting to book on.
I hope this is clear and fair.
