The third limb of Yoga, and perhaps the most well known of the 8 Limbs. In the west, they are commonly mistaken as “all there is” to Yoga. The purpose of asanas is to make the body a good home for the mind and soul. They provide a controlled battleground for the process of conflict and creation. 

*Enjoy a daily sunrise and sunset yoga flow, blending styles of Ashtanga, Restorative, Vinyasa, and Yin. No experience necessary.


Is the seventh limb of Yoga, dhyana, but often understood as the inner most quest, antaratma sadhana, which involves the last three Limbs: dharana, dhyana, and samadhi. The goal of antaratma sadhana is to reach samadhi, however, it is only a tool in the process of self-realization.

*Study ancient Himalayan meditation techniques to reach the center of your being. 


Breathing is the most important part of our practice. Breath is prana, or vital life force, that nourishes your heart, your brain, your entire body and how we perceive the world.  Breath has a huge impact on our lives.

*Learn breathing techniques to drastically increase the quality of your mind, body, emotions, and life!  


The oldest healing science, dating back more than 5,000 years. The knowledge of Ayurveda originated in India and formed the foundation for all other healing systems that exist today. Its main purpose is to heal by bringing balance to the body, mind, and spirit. This is accomplished through diet, lifestyle, and rejuvenation. 

*Nourish your body with an Ayurvedic diet and indulge in an Abhyanga massage. This Ayurvedic self-massage stimulates the lymphatic system and raises your vibration and capacity for self-compassion. 

Camino Rojo

*There are very few words written about El Camino Rojo, as it opposes the idea that only the written word is legitimate. El Camino Rojo is an oral tradition that deals with the subtleties of our being and connects us to spirit through icaros, prayers, and words. Teachings and ceremonies revolve around nature and Earth. Nature creates the space we need to fully connect and understand our purpose here. The elements act as our teachers. The more we understand the wind, the earth, the fire, the water and the space, the better we can understand ourselves. 

"Caminatas" are the walks we will take through the mountains to better understand these teachings and learn from nature. 

Venue Highlights

The house is a renovated flour mill, located in the Sierra Nevada National Park. The property features a naturally occurring spring water pool. Sierra Nevada is Spain’s largest national park and has been declared a biosphere reserve. The park is home to a thriving Spanish ibex population, along with other species such as wild boar, martens, badgers, wildcats, and the Golden Eagle.

The house is located just 30 minutes away from Granada, arguably the single most worthwhile city in Spain for visitors.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health.
