I’m delighted to be able to share this retreat at Santillán which has one of Europe’s finest state of the art and fully equipped yoga studios.
Designed by Simon Low and Eija Tervonen it features ‘the Great Yoga Wall’ and a full range of yoga props, infra-red heating panels, ceiling fans and other outstanding facilities for holidays and trainings with the intention of creating the ultimate yoga studio experience for all styles of yoga.

Each day will offer the opportunity to explore the practice in in its fullest form.
Morning sessions will begin with early morning Sadhana (meditation and pranayama) followed by at least two hours of Asana practice. Afternoon sessions will be around two hours, always ending with a short meditation practice.

There will be one afternoon and one morning off for rest, beach adventures, exploring the local areas or visiting the renowned Andalucian cities of Granada, Ronda, Cordoba, Malaga, Nerja or Marbella, for example, all within an accessible driving distance. There are also local golf courses and horseback riding, as well as walks in the surrounding hills with views to the Mediterranean. There
is a salt water pool good for comfortable laps and a paddle tennis court.

Accommodation is in lovely and spacious single or twin/double rooms
with ensuite bathrooms, balconies or patios with fabulous views to the sea or to the tropical gardens.
