The retreat is held on a private villa located near the coastal town of Javea. All the rooms have en-suite bathroom and all are available for single use as Yoga Breaks in Spain doesnt ask nor expects guests to share. An oasis of calm and tranquility, this traditional Spanish villa is a great shelter for those who love nature, peace, and big open skies. The Norwegian owners of the house have worked tirelessly these past two years undertaking a full restoration program of the house, and so youll see their Scandinavian influence in the calm, pure interior decor.

Yoga Breaks in Spains created the perfect balance of organized and free time. Youll eat well, rest well, sleep well, laugh a lot, and possibly glean life-changing tips you can easily incorporate when your return home. Each day begins quietly with some fresh fruit and a detoxifying tea sipped in the sunshine to help you slowly awaken before a morning yoga or pilates class where youll stretch and open your body to the day. When youre feeling awake and refreshed, its time now to join Yoga Breaks in Spains chef in his kitchen for a deliciously healthy cleansing breakfast to kick start the digestive system before some gentle exercise.

On return to your villa, theres delicious colorful lunch waiting for you. Your afternoons are free for wellness talks, therapies, private consultations with the wellness team, time to chat, read, snooze or relax by the pool on a lounger in the sunshine before gathering late afternoon for a second yoga or pilates class prior to a tasty detoxification supper and chats before bed. In the evening time, you will have star and planet gazing from the rooftop terrace - into infinity and beyond!

You will also enjoy a movie night with popcorn; chill out in your pajamas! Another offered activities are a guided hike through the fragrant pine forest, and health talks. Therell be 3 health talks on topics that will most definitely enrich your detoxifying experience - body, mind, and soul. Talks could include topics such as nutrition for continual vitality; its the thought that counts; the happiness formula; seeking your soul vision; breathe life into your life; postural clinic, and others. You can also always chose to simply relax by the pool and enjoy the warmth of the sun on your body.

Detoxifying yoga

Gentle exercise during a detoxification is super important as it encourages lymph drainage and blood flow which stimulate the movement of waste out of the body. Your daily yoga and pilates classes will include a variety of postures that open, stretch, and strengthen the body. Therell be twists for their drain and rinse effect on the liver and digestive organs, back bends to open the body and release stagnation, inversions to drain lymph from the legs, groin and throat plus postures, breath work, and meditations to nourish and soothe the mind and nervous system.

All classes are suitable for all levels - from keen beginners to advanced yoga / pilates practitioners. When youre detoxifying, its super important to listen to your body and do only as much you feel your body is happy to do. So if theres a morning you want to sleep in, please sleep in. If theres an afternoon you would rather explore the town than come to class, thats ok!

Wander through the charming old town of Javea

The Costa Blanca area of Spain is truly beautiful with stunning mountain scenery and an abundance of lush vegetation. The pace of life here is much slower. No one is measured by what car he drives, how much he earns or what hes wearing. This is how life should be. Alicante has one of healthiest climates on Earth rated by the World Health Organization due to the delicate eco-system of daily sunshine, the ocean, and awesome lush scenery.
