La Crisalida Health and Wellbeing Retreats

About This Center

Imagine practicing yoga with views of the mountains and the sea glistening in the distance, and the feeling of the sea breeze upon your face and body, on our beautiful yoga terrace. Or maybe you can see yourself meditating with the sun dropping down over the mountains. There are plentiful sunsets and sunrises at La Crisalida, whilst walking along the blue flag beach of Albir or through the natural park to the Faro (lighthouse). You might be lucky to spot one of the dolphins that swim off the coast. You can open the door from your room, to a sunbed surrounding our tranquil courtyard and pools. 

Relax and rejuvenate in our caring, nurturing environment. Your relaxation starts from the moment you arrive in our tranquil surroundings. With plentiful sunbeds, two outdoors pools to choose from, secluded terrace areas and our wonderful yoga terrace, there is plenty of space for you to have some quiet time and enjoy the magnificent climate here on the Costa Blanca, Spain, one of the best climates in Europe. 

La Crisalida offers you flexibility with the timing of your retreat, so you are free to choose your date of arrival and departure, fitting in your time here according to your schedule – activities run every day, so your retreat does not have to start on a specific day. Stay for three nights or three weeks (or longer!), it is up to you. Transfers from Alicante airport are included in your price, so you can relax as everything is taken care of.  

The fresh food is stunning and lovingly prepared every day by our talented chefs. The healthy nutritionally packed plant-based menu changes in time with the seasons and to availability of local fruits and vegetables. Or maybe you choose to take up our juicing option, with juices made in front of you just before you drink. It is your choice whether to juice, eat or maybe combine both, as you are free to choose for each meal. If you wish to detox during your stay you might choose to start with a three-day juice, using fresh vegetable and fruit juices. This allows the body to let go of any toxins, cleansing you from the inside. Weight-loss is a common result when we juice or eat natural foods that are packed with nutrition. Whether you choose to eat or juice, you can rest assured that you are giving your body live food, full of vitamins and nutrients which allows your body to detox, cleanse and refresh, meaning you feel revitalised by the end of your stay at La Crisalida.

The yoga on offer is designed to revitalise your body, mind and spirit, with morning classes of 90 minutes every day, with extra 60 minutes classes in the afternoon most days of the week. The main yoga practiced is hatha yoga, with vinyassa flow, viniyoga, one taster kundalini class, and a new yin yoga class too. Our well trained instructors are here to support you on your yoga journey. 

There are plenty of other activities available for you to join in – walks, rebounding, pilates, Latinasize, creativity classes, workshops and meditation (including a yoga nidra). Join in as many or as few activities as you choose. These activities are all included in the price of your retreat. The workshops are designed to help you gain balance in your life and feel more confident and for people wanting more in-depth or personalised attention, coaching is also available at extra cost.  

We also call upon a number of talented therapists who offer holistic treatments, including massage (deep tissue, sports, relaxing, Indian head and so on), Reiki, chakra balancing, manicures and pedicures and much more. These treatments can help you to rebalance and leave you feeling completely blissed out!

Whether you are travelling singly, with friends or in a group, La Crisalida Retreats welcomes you. Group sizes vary throughout the year, but whatever time of year you visit, you will feel the warmth as soon as you arrive. We have many accommodation options to suit your desire and budget.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
