Description of Yoga holidays in Spain

Welcome to Yoga Holidays in Spain!

Since 2003 we've organised our yoga inspired retreats at lovely little hotels close to the sea in the sunny Alicante region of Spain. Retreats that are suitable for keen yoga beginners to the super flexible yogi!

Here in this area of Spain the beautiful scenery and coast hugging mountains tumbling to the sea are just breath taking. And, courtesy of the underground springs, we're blessed with an abundance of Mediterranean fruits & vegetables year round - avocados, peppers, aubergines, courgettes, olives, almonds, peaches, pomegranete, peaches, oranges, figs & apricots.

The superb climate here even led the World Health Organisation to declare this zone to be one of the healthiest on Earth! A great choice for our retreats!

Over the years we've noticed that guests like more than 'just yoga' on their holiday & so we have a range of various programmes that all include a healthy dose of yoga alongside other activities you can chose to do if you wish.

RETREAT LOCATIONS

Ours are NOT 'rustic' retreats & so you'll NOT be sleeping in a tent, hot caravan or damp wooden cabin! Nor will you have to share bathrooms or be asked to share you room with someone else.

Since the very beginning our ethos has been to provide superb yoga retreats at affordable prices at lovely little hotels that have a touch of luxury where you'll have your own double room & private bathroom.

We never expect our guests to share rooms .. unless you want to bring a friend to share with of course! Below you'll find details of our retreat hotels.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Yoga holidays in Spain

Our holidays take place at carefully chosen venues run by friendly local families and we employ many local people as our guides, drivers, housekeepers, cooks, therapists & teachers not just because they are local, but because they are the lifeblood of the area and bring local colour and information that you'll not find in guidebooks.

Our local team help our holidays come alive but, in the cold light of day, we realise we help to keep local families together because, without (y)our support, these families could have to separate & move away to find work elsewhere.

Energy & Recycling: We run our business efficiently, recycling all waste material & using natural resources as sparingly as possible. All guests are encouraged to act responsibly by minimising their use of electricity, recycle waste packaging and in specifying when they need fresh towels. All water taps & toilets have been fitted with a device to reduce water flow, low energy light bulbs have been installed and hotel rubbish is recycled according to local authority policies.

Supporting Local Charities: We support two local charities with donations from our profit; a donkey sanctuary that cares for old or abandoned donkeys and a Home for children who are at risk.

Building Restoration: In the construction & renovation of the hotels, natural local materials where used and existing features preserved rather than replaced.

Food: We serve typical local dishes with virtually all ingredients being grown or caught locally. This not only minimises packaging and supports local food producers, but our meals can then maintain optimum nutrition levels, being only hours from the ground/sea to the table.

Culture: We encourage guests to explore & immerse themselves into the Spanish way of life by dining at local restaurants, visiting markets and buying gifts from local artisans and producers. And, if there’s a local festival … everyone’s invited to immerse themselves and taste the Spanish’s love of fiestas!
