Accommodation and location
A secluded haven all on its own, this idyllic hacienda rests in over 60 acres of land right in the heart of Grazalema nature reserve.
Comprised of a large main house and clusters of small private apartments, each with their own swimming pools, all of your creature comforts will be taken care of. Free wifi is available throughout the venue and you will be surrounded by stunning views of the mountain scenery.
The hacienda is 2.5 miles / 4 km from the town El Gastor, known locally as the balcony of The White Villages of Cádiz, and situated in the Sierra de Grazalema nature reserve. The reserve is Andalucia’s first natural park and has been a UNESCO biosphere reserve since 1977 revered for its limestone cliffs, gullies, caves and gorges as well as its griffon vulture colonies.
Our yoga classes will be held in a light, spacious studio equipped with mats and props for all of your needs.
Two classes of 90 minutes each, suitable for beginners and intermediate yogis alike will be offered each day, with alllevels of experience welcomed.
We will be practicing a range of styles and practices including: hatha, vinyasa flow, yoga nidra, pranayama breath work and meditation.
Run by Emma Macdonald and Krishna Hassomal, you will have the benefit of two yoga teachers guiding you through your daily practice.
They both bring their own authentic styles but are united by the belief that yoga is there to be enjoyed by everyone and always ensure our students enjoy their classes no matter what level of experience they have.
We will be joined by Kerry Wright, a qualified holistic therapist, who will provide massages during the day at an extra cost.
