- TEACHERS' RETREAT SPAIN
OCT 24th - 28th 2024
-SELF RESTORE & RECONNECT
WHAT TO EXPECT
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 varying asana practices and requests are very welcomed. I make things accessible to all so levels & feels of practice, meaning I’ll offer many options to make you feel comfortable and supported.
The idea of making this retreat for teachers, is to support each other in what we do offer space for conscious chats and allow our leanings to grow organically in a space of connected beings willing and open to share. I will offer discussion based time to drop deeper into certain subject matters in a very welcoming environment. I believe this will all occur quite organically when we come together and am very excited to host this retreat. I also want to encourage time for restore and self reconnect what we do holding space for others is huge and we need o hold regular space for ourselves.
Each afternoon we’ll connect for discussion, circles, this may sometimes occur late morning rather than early afternoon we feel each day out as they arrive, fully in the moment. But don’t worry I’ll be giving you an easy schedule to follow each morning at breakfast so you don’t have to worry about timings or planning.
One evening we will have a yoga nidra and sound healing session. (because why wouldn't we!)
Each evening or late afternoon practice (pre dinner) will be a slower offering something more nurturing grounded.
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 there is a honesty system if you fancy a glass of something!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Thanks for such a needed space to reset you held the group together and created a community I could have only imagined!
I practice with Emily regularly but spending a focused time in practice was incredible being able to develop and delve that much deeper!
Retreating last year was unbelievable, i have a new community of friends and got to spend so much quality time restoring myelsf and my body - also the food was divine!

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.
