7 Day 6 night Meditation and Yoga Retreat Andalucia Spain

FINCA LAS CALMAS 1Moraleda de Zafayona,Granada,Santa Fe,Spain

Organizer: yoga casa bhakti

Review By Carolin D: Perfect for Hatha Yoga/Meditation start or intensification, Amazing food! I spend 5 days at Casa Bhakti and I am very happy I found this lovely place. Could really deepen my yoga and meditation practice, I think I found a new level of mindfulness. Still, they do not go for spiritual chichi. I can recommend it to anyone who is interested in a healthy mind/body relationship. For the accommodation and food: Imagine friends of yours moved to the countryside and try to convince you to become vegetarian/vegan, so cook their very best meals three times per day :-) so incredibly good and they put so much effort in it! It does not feel like a Hotel/Hostel, rather family, so I also advice this place for single travelers. The mental work you do there during your stay is demanding, so consider a single room to have some more space.

Review By Camper227270: The best place if you need a quiet, peaceful, stress free environment, away from the craziness of our cities and daily lives, to practice yoga and meditation, or just to relax and think. The place in general and rooms are definitely clean, beautiful and comfortable. The owners did a great job. Full of small beautiful decorative details too. A place to enjoy calm, peace, the beautiful landscapes and sceneries (mountains (Sierra Nevada), olive trees fields), reading a good book, relaxing, sunrises and sunsets, and the beauty of Mother Nature. The food (vegetarian)... delicious! Tasty, healthy, well presented. Just yummy. Really yummy! So yes I definitely recommend this place. The owners (Francesca and Loïc) are very friendly and always available to make sure you are well and to share.

Program Description

The program focuses significantly on the 5 basic principles of yoga: proper breathing, proper exercise, proper relaxation, proper diet, and proper thinking (meditation). These principles arise from Integral yoga that originated in ancient India thousands of years ago.

While you do not need to be an experienced yogi to participate, it is recommended that first-timers should collect some basic information on yoga, breathing techniques, and meditation before attending.

The place is fully equipped for guests with comfortable en-suite double and twin-sharing rooms. So as to help the yogis disconnect from the outer world so they can attend to their inner-selves, the rooms have no television. The venue is entirely smoke-free.

In addition, there is a swimming pool (not heated) that you can use to take a dip during hot days.

There’s an in-house library to keep you intellectually and spiritually entertained in the venue.
