Yoga & hiking retreat in sunny Spain

Spain

Highlights

Guided hikes countryside & mountains Twice daily yoga with seasoned teachers Stay at tranquil olive mill by the sea

Overview

Join us for five nights & days in the beautiful Alicante region of Spain where the coast-hugging mountains tumble to the sea and where the sun shines for over 300 days a year!

We'll be staying at a 300-year-old olive mill that's been renovated into a super peaceful country house hotel with a pool, sauna, small gym and 20 spacious double rooms just 10 minutes walk to the very pretty town of Altea and 20 mins to the beach.

We'll be practising yoga twice a day in the studio with great views, heading out on some awesome hikes in the countryside & nearby mountains and enjoying lazy afternoons by the pool, pampering therapies, joining the optional guided bike ride, cookery workshop or having a 'guilt-free' snooze in your room!

You'll be taught a mixture of Hatha, Vinyasa flow & Restorative yoga by two seasoned yoga teachers during your stay plus a meditation teacher who'll join us one eve for a workshop.  Morning yoga tends to be a little more energising to warm and open the body whereas evening sessions are a little slower where we’ll hold postures a little longer to allow the body extra time to open up & let us back in.   All classes are suitable for the keen beginner right up to the super flexible yogi!

Super delicious plant-based suppers are served on all but 2 evenings together with an abundant buffet brunch each day after morning yoga.  We'll leave two eves free for your taste buds to explore the local restaurants as there's nothing like dining with locals to make you feel like you're on holiday!

Location

Our location

Our Yoga & Hiking Holidays take place in the coastal town of Altea, an hour north of Alicante (guest transfer service available at selected times).

Altea is surrounded by coast-hugging mountains that tumble to the sea and is considered to be one of the prettiest towns in this area with cosy whitewashed houses lining narrow cobbled streets, little artisan studios, a stunning blue-domed church and a gorgeous coastline.

According to the World Health Organisation, this is one of the healthiest places on Earth!

Accommodation

We'll be staying at a 300-year-old olive mill set in a peaceful location between the countryside & the old town.  The mill has been owned by the same Spanish family for all 300 years (!) with the current family converting it into a lovely little country house hotel in the late 1990s.

Each of the 20 double rooms is light & airy and have a private bathroom with a hairdryer, complimentary toiletries, fresh towels & a fluffy robe to relax in.   The bedrooms are superbly equipped with satellite TV, telephone, hot/cold air-conditioning, safety deposit, refrigerator, WiFi, a daily maid service to keep everything fresh & sparkling so you don't need to lift a finger!

As we don’t ask (nor expect) our solo guests to share, all solo guests are given their own double ensuite room for the lowest single supplement we've ever seen for a yoga retreat at just £75 for the retreat. Of course, if you'd like to bring & share with a friend, that's also possible :)

Activities

Each day begins quietly with herbal tea & fruit whilst you slowly awaken.  Next its 90 minutes of uplifting Yoga to open your body & senses to the day followed by a hearty brunch of fresh fruits, wholesome cereals, yogurts, local cheeses & cold cuts, Spanish tortilla, hot eggs, sun kissed tomatoes, avocados, breakfast cakes, breads,  juices, teas & infusions.

Before evening yoga you could join one of our optional activities (see below),   indulge in some  pampering therapies, wander into town or relax by the pool in the sunshine. 

Late afternoon we gather for another yoga session to help us unwind from the day.   We’ll dine at the hotel on 3 evenings .. delicious 3 course plant based supper ..  but leave 2 eves free for your taste-buds to explore local dining.  On one of these eves we’ll organise a meal at a local restaurant which you are very welcome to join.

We like our retreats to be super relaxed & so if there’s a morning you’d like a lie-in or an afternoon where you’d like to skip class and wander into town, no problem!  Do whatever your soul asks.

Instructors

Nicole

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.
