Schedule

This 5 night/6 day retreat takes place in the coastal beach town of Altea where you will experience all that the beautiful art of yoga & pilates have to offer. Mornings & afternoon are spent doing yoga & Pilates and the days are spent exploring & relaxing and deepening our yoga pilates knowledge in specialised workshops, joining the optional bike ride & aerial yoga, lazing by the pool, heading to the beach, enjoying therapies, having a guilt free snooze or taking a wander along the beach to the lighthouse in our neighbouring town.

You will have time to take in the natural beauty surrounding you and still have chance to simply be present and still. This balanced retreat invites you to deepen your yoga & pilates practice, to explore and still get the rest and recovery needed from your busy life.

This is a fantastic opportunity to rest, realign and transform your body with an immersion into the ancient art of yoga and body strengthening Pilates with seasoned experienced teachers dedicated to their chosen field so you receive the 'pure' form of both these excellent body shaping disciplines.

Menu/Cuisine

We’ll nourish you with delicious plant based meals using locally sourced seasonal produce. Occasionally, locally caught fresh fish will be offered for those that would like it.

We are so lucky to have an abundance of underground water in this area from deep within the mountains giving us a year round supply of Mediterranean fruits & vegetables. Our menus change seasonally to take advantage of nature’s bounty & so, when it’s warm, we lean towards lighter easily digested dishes whereas in the milder months, we serve dishes that make us feel warm & loved from the inside out.

A hearty buffet breakfast is served after morning class and 3 course plant based suppers at the hotel on all but 2 evenings. We leave 2 eves free for your taste buds to explore the many local dining options.

Directions

Alicante airport is an hour by car .. airport transfers available please ask us for details. Alternatively we can offer advice on a local shuttle bus service if your flights do not marry with our transfer times.
