ASHTANGA & PRANAYAMA RETREAT IN SOUTH OF SPAIN

22-29 June, 2019 | Las Chimeneas Spain

This retreat is an intention to deepen practices away from distractions of the hustle and bustle of our daily lives gaining new perspectives and insights.


It is a pleasure to be sharing this week with you on the mountains of the Sierra Nevada in South of Spain. I am especially excited to share the experience of the rawness and the magic of the endless space of nature!


This ReTREAT is an opportunity to restore balance, connection and reboost to your practice in the midst of the wilderness of the mountains living a pure and simple life.


We will open the mornings with ancient yogic practices: meditation, chanting, kriyas, pranayama and asana based on Ashtanga Yoga (Led or Mysore style). You will receive individual guidance and adjustments which is the traditional way to transmit understanding of Ashtanga Yoga. The afternoon sessions are dedicated to the philosophy of Pranayama and Ashtanga Yoga and certain topics to discuss, playfully explore asanas and Q&A to deepen understanding of your practice and yoga. The outdoor shala is about 10 min walk and has an amazing view!


The Retreat place “Las Chimeneas” is a hidden gem located in a remote Alpujarran village called Mairena at about 1000m altitude with magnificent views over the Sierra Nevada mountain range. This place is authentic and is situated in one of the most energetically powerful spot in Europe! It is run by the lovely British couple, Emma and David, who have been living in the Sierras for years. Emma and David offer guided walk tours all year round. Check out their website: Laschimeneas.com


Soledad will cook for us during the week and she is known for her deliciously vegetarian, organic and locally grown food. The rooms are lovely and have fabulous views across the hills to the distant sea.
