Pure Yoga : Going Deeper Retreat by the Sea

Europe - 5 days

Highlights

Twice daily yoga sessions Workshops to deepen your practice Lovely boutique hotel by the sea

Overview

Our Pure Yoga Retreats include all that the beautiful art of yoga has to offer.  With carefully planned twice daily yoga sessions led by seasoned teachers who’ll take you on a yoga journey linking asanas with breath work (pranayama), uplifting music, meditation and an exploration of some of yoga’s deepest gifts in the ‘Beyond the Asana‘ workshops all delivered with passion and a sense of playfulness.

Yoga is practiced in the hotel courtyard in the fresh air looking up to blue skies & swooping swallows.  The twice daily 90 minute sessions with seasoned teachers combine the deep stretches of Hatha with the warming flow of Vinyasa together with some deeply Restorative Yoga.

During your yoga week we’ll also explore other aspects of yoga to ensure you have a deep immersion into this ancient practice.  We’ll balance chakras, practice pranayama techniques, activate your pranic energy and explore some of yoga’s subtle but profound ‘secrets’ together with other ‘good stuff’ that organically arises.

The yoga level is suitable for keen beginners and the super flexible yogi. Our teaching style is precise but relaxed. There’s no pressure to create the perfect looking yoga posture as our bodies are all different – though we do encourage proper alignment to prevent injury. What’s more important is that you focus on how the yoga ‘feels’ in your body as yoga is something you feel not what you ‘do’. Likewise, there’s no room for ego so pay no attention to what others are doing around you, just respect where your body is now.

In addition to twice daily yoga there’ll also be some ‘fun-but-good-for-you’ optional activities too.  There's optional guided walk along the beach, a bike ride, Yoga on the sea on a Paddle Board, superb therapies & massages and time to head to the beach and relax in the sunshine.

Everything is optional .. even the yoga!

Whether you’re new to yoga or not, this retreat brings together all the elements of yoga in a simple but profound way 

Location

Our location

Our Pure Yoga Retreats take place in the coastal town of Denia, 75 minutes north of Alicante (guest transfer service available at selected times).

You’ll stay at a gorgeous little boutique hotel in the historic ‘old town’ – the original heart of Denia.  A stay here promises a taste of the ‘real‘ Spain as you’ll be alongside local Spanish families, tasty tapas bars, a few steps from Denia castle and an easy 15 minute stroll to the sea.

Denia has two lovely sandy beaches, an elegant town with beautiful architecture, little boutiques, alfresco cafes, excellent restaurants and a marina where you can catch a boat to Ibiza … should you wish!

Accommodation

We are delighted to host this retreat at a very special little hotel.  

Built in the 19th century as a family home for a wealthy merchant, the house later became a convent & a school before the current owners lovingly resorted the house into a beautiful & unique hotel with 18 exquisite rooms.

The owners just happen to be accomplished artists & Feng Shui interior designers and so there’s a lovely calm vibe throughout the entire house.

Each bedroom is beautifully styled with artwork & period furniture.   All rooms have twin or double beds, hot & cold air-conditioning, hair-dryer, safety deposit, WiFi, TV, a daily maid service to keep everything fresh & sparkling and an ensuite bathroom with fluffy towels & complimentary organic toiletries.

You can chose a standard room or upgrade to a larger superior room.  And, as we don’t expect our solo guests to share, all rooms are available for single use for a reasonable supplement of £75 for the week.  We also have a couple of lovely large rooms with 4 single beds should your friends want to join you .. we’ll even give a discount for 3 or 4 sharing friends.

Activities

We encourage silence each morning until breakfast & so each day begins quietly with fresh fruits & herbal teas to help you slowly awaken.  Then, step onto your mat for a 90-minute yoga practice to open bodies & senses to the day followed by a lovely buffet brunch created with love by our Chef.  Nourish your body with seasonal fruits, wholesome cereals, yogurts, local cheeses & cold cuts, egg  dishes, sun kissed tomatoes & avocados, fresh juice, a variety of breads, croissants, jams, honey, teas & infusions plus Chef’s special ‘dish of the day’.

After brunch you are free to spend the day how you wish but maybe you’d like to join one of our optional ‘fun but good for you’ activities (see below), or take yourself to the beach, explore the town & castle or find a cosy corner at the hotel and loose yourself in a book.

Late afternoon we gather again for another 90 minute yoga journey into our bodies.  Then after a short rest, its time to get together for a deliciously healthy plant based supper.   We’ll dine at the hotel on all but two evenings as we thought you’d like to try the fabulous local restaurants.  On one of these free eves, we’ll organise a meal at a local restaurant which you are free to join if you wish.

Menu

We are blessed to have an abundance of underground springs in this area & so there is a year round bounty of fruits & veggies on our doorstep hence we make good use of this harvest in our menus that change seasonally.

We’ll nourish you with a delicious plant based diet (though locally caught fish is offered one evening for those that would like it).  In the warmer months we tend towards dishes that are easily digested and cooling whereas in the milder months, we opt for hearty warming dishes that make you feel loved from the inside out. 

Instructors

Nicole Stone

Yoga Teacher & founder of Yoga Breaks in Spain. Nicole qualified with an “Excellent” grade Diploma following a 2 years of training with FRYOG (Friends of Yoga International). Now with over 15 years teaching experience and further training with super inspiring yoga teachers – Meghan Currie, Shiva Rea, Claire Missingham, Liz Lark, Godfri Devereux & others who’s names you may not recognise but have been equally enlightening.

“Yoga to me is like an incredible secret I want to share with as many people as possible. I love the endless benefits it brings into our life starting with the unlocking of physical tension that has crept into our bodies to the discovery of a source of deep inner peace when we allow ourselves to just stop and simply breathe. Every time I roll out my mat I really feel like I’ve come home.”

Dionne

Shortly after qualifying as a fitness instructor in 1997, Dionne began to practice yoga and soon noticed how her body felt supple & strong and her mind calm, clear & focused. So in 2014 headed to India to begin teacher training at Aananda Yoga School in Mysore (accredited by the Yoga Alliance) where she was tutored by the incredibly knowledgeable Yogacharya Bharath Shetty. More recently in 2016, Dionne returned to her Guru to complete her 500 hour Advanced teacher training.

Dionne’s teaching style is friendly, down to earth & accessible to all where the focus is on alignment, breath control and building strength & flexibility for an overall healthier body. Full of instruction and variations, there is something for everyone in Dionne´s classes. With her help and guidance, you’ll be encouraged to find your own yoga path.
