Retreat Space & the Surroundings
Imagine spending 6 days in the nature, surrounded by mountains, rolling hills, olive trees and gardens. There is a swimming pool with sun loungers to relax and refresh yourself; open air training area that include bouldering wall, pull up bar, slack-line, weights; hammocks are set under the trees; communal areas with sofas, pool table, darts, chess and other board games, as well as the open air yoga shala with fairy lights and big windows. It's a peaceful oasis to unwind, relax and recharge. Night sky is full of stars as there is no light pollution, and each day we are gifted with beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
El Chorro is also a world class rock climbing destination, therefore if you are a climber - welcome to spend your free time during the retreat climbing rocks. The closest crag is 5 min walking away from the retreat space (you can literally see those walls from the swimming pool). Another option is to arrive or depart earlier and combine this yoga retreat with your climbing holiday.
Handpan meditative concert with Mar Loi
One of the evenings, Mar Loi will join us to share a Handpan meditative concert in our spacious open air studio. Imagine being cosy seated (or comfortably laying down) with a cup of tea in your hands, eyes closed, listening to the music around you.
Mar Loi is an explorer, intuitive and expressive musician. Since she started playing the Handpan, she has dedicated her life to composing and giving concerts and workshops around the world. You can listen to her beautiful music on Spotify.
Lilli and Emma from Apricus Kitchen will be nourishing us during this retreat. It will be their third time with us already and how excited I am that they are onboard once again. Their food is made with so much love, it's nourishing, colourful, abundant and so delicious. We will have three daily meals in a buffet style. The food is mostly gluten free and refined sugar free. It's also all plant based, except for the local eggs for breakfast. Every day we also enjoy a dessert!
