Overview

The Be Moved Yoga Retreat is for you if...

  • You want to move your body, calm your mind, and express your spirit in a fun, encouraging, and inspiring environment.
  • You want to invest in yourself and your self-development with tools and practices that awaken your innate potential for growth.
  • You want to cultivate awareness of energy moving through you, and feel yourself move in harmony with that energy.
  • You want to tap into your highest self, experiencing inner joy and opening your heart to the world around you.
  • You want to rest and restore, deeply, with practices that give you time and space to integrate your experience.

Be Moved

All experience is energy in motion—our thoughts, feelings, actions, and emotions are dynamic and ever-changing. Yet, we don't often take the time to graciously watch these experiences unfold on a moment-to-moment basis. When we move through life without thought or awareness, we tend to run on auto-pilot, which can leave us feeling depleted, unfulfilled, uninspired or lacking purpose. On the other hand, when you experience the limitless power of the present moment, life unfolds with you in a deeply moving way.

The Be Moved Retreat offers you the time, space to connect to the subtle energy that permeates all that surrounds you. You’ll sharpen your awareness of body, breath, and spirit by tuning into the ever-unfolding present moment. The days will flow through a centring rhythm of movement and stillness with activities that spark creativity and evoke joy.

Our location

The Setting

Let the rugged and rural Spanish countryside awaken your soul.

The Be Moved retreat is taking place at the House of Light Retreat Centre; a tranquil sanctuary set among the stunning natural backdrop of La Alpujarra in Southern Spain.

The magical property, from where you can view both the mountains and ocean, is beautiful and inspiring, as well as incredibly nurturing. The venue includes gorgeous guest rooms, glamping yurts and:

  • An indoor yoga studio with balconies that offer views to the mountains and the sea.
  • A stunning poolside patio with breathtaking, panoramic views.
  • A large sun terrace for dining al-fresco under the setting sun.
  • A large Mongolian yurt set on a wooden floor with a roof reaching up to a large skylight.
  • Gardens that offer many spots for quiet reflection with hammocks shaded by large oak trees.

House of Light's diverse and distinctive spaces have been intricately and lovingly designed to give individuals the opportunity to connect with nature, open up, drop into vulnerability and connect quickly and deeply with one’s self.

Accommodation

Moroccan-inspired villa living

All of the rooms have been decorated with attention to detail and provide aesthetically beautiful, calm spaces designed to both inspire and relax you.

A mixture of private and shared accommodations of indoor rooms and outdoor yurts is available to suit your travel preferences and budget (see below).

Communal gathering

The dining room is connected to a large veranda allowing for group meals to be enjoyed inside or outside in the sun, taking in the mountain views down to the Mediterranean and, on a clear day, across to North Africa.

Gather at the large West facing sun terrace or head to the Moroccan Snug, a corner of comfy luxury with lounge sofas and lanterns.

Professionally-appointed yoga studio

The venue includes two dedicated indoor practice spaces, in addition to the outdoor garden areas. The studio spaces are perfectly equipped with yoga mats, props and meditation seats, providing you with support and comfort for your practices.
