Description of Yoga holidays in Spain

Welcome to Yoga Breaks in Spain!

We've been sharing the beautiful art of yoga on the sunny shores of Alicante since 2003 & we still absolutely LOVE what we do!

The Alicante region has the most breath taking scenery with coast hugging mountains tumbling to the sea and an abundance of underground springs that help keep this area super green all year and brings life to lots of juicy Mediterranean fruits & veggies that we use in our meals.

Spending time here in the sunshine & stunning scenery is a real tonic for the soul so we'd love to have you come & join us!

WHAT WE DO

We have 3 completely different yoga holiday programmes held at 2 really lovely little hotels with a touch of luxury located near the sea & owned by local Spanish families to ensure your holiday has a taste of 'true' Spain.

You can choose from Yoga & Hiking Holidays, Yoga & Pilates Holidays and Pure Yoga : Going Deeper Retreats. Each holiday is 5 nights/6 days - though longer stays are welcomed on a B&B basis & non-yoga partners are welcome too. See below for a full description on each holiday & latest dates.

Every holiday is an invitation for you to reconnect with & get back into your mind & body with the very best of Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Restorative Yoga, Meditation, nourishing food, well-being workshops, 'fun-but-good -for-you' optional activities and time to slow down & reflect, to explore, take a guilt free snooze or relax in the sunshine. The perfect balance of activity & relaxation.

We absolutely recognise how important 'down time' is & so everything in the programme is optional - including the twice daily yoga sessions if you fancy a lie in one morning. However, if you're feeling a little adventurous, there'll be some reasonably priced activities to help immerse you in the local culture. Activities change according to the season but can include guided nature walks, mountain hikes, bike rides in the countryside, Spanish cookery lesson, SUP Yoga (or Pilates) on the sea, well-being workshops and of course, lots of lovely therapies & fantastic massages too.

Most guests come on their own so don't worry if you're thinking of coming solo as you'll be in good company! And. as we never ask (nor expect) our solo guests to share, everyone has their own en-suite double or twin bedroom for a simple supplement of £75 for the week - the lowest single sup we've ever seen for a retreat. Of course, if you'd like to share with a friend, that's fine too.

We really want to deliver the very best yoga holiday experience we can & so we deliberately limit the number of retreats we do to ensure we are fully 'there' for you - not on 'auto pilot' which is what would happen if we were running retreats week in, week out hence our retreats ONLY operate on the dates below:

We spent years searching for the perfect locations as we wanted to make sure you felt cossetted and super comfortable. Both our venues are absolutely unique and have a touch of luxury. You can read more about them below but for now, let us tell you that every bedroom is spacious & has either double or twin beds, its own en-suite private bathroom (we didn't want you to have to share with anyone) and each room is well equipped to help you feel at home right away.

HOTEL 1 - a 300 year old restored Olive Farm in the coastal town of Altea.

This hotel has a lovely tranquil location with with stunning views over the countryside & to the sea and yet is just 10 mins walk to the very pretty town of Altea nearby & 25mins to the sea.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Putting People & the Planet first.
Our holidays take place at carefully chosen little hotels owned by friendly local Spanish families who, together with our retreat team, employ only local people 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.

These lovely local people help our holidays come alive but, in the cold light of day, we realise that we/you help keep these families together as, without your/our support, they would most likely have to separate to find work elsewhere.

Recycling.
Ourselves & the hotels actively recycle cardboard , paper, plastic, cans and glass using special recycling containers which guests are encouraged to use too. In addition, guest bathrooms have large dispensers of toiletries rather than small plastic bottles which need replacing more frequently & would add to the amount of recycling. You’ll also have the option to re-use the towels & linen in your room which ultimately will save water, electricity, soap & labour.

Green Energy.
In addition to the use of low consumption light bulbs, the majority of our hotel’s electricity comes entirely from the sun as they have solar panels. There's also water saving devices fitted to the taps & toilets to help reduce flow & conserve water.

You'll be gently encouraged to be more mindful of your water & energy usage during your stay. Little things can make a big, big difference such as closing windows if using the air con, taking a shower instead of a bath, switching off lights when not in your room, opting to re-use your towels & linen and taking only what is needed at meal times to avoid food waste - you can always come back for seconds if you're super hungry!, and bringing a re-useable water bottle to avoid buying water in plastic bottles when you're here.

Retreat Dining.
We are blessed to have over 300 days of sunshine a year in this region of Spain and an abundance of underground fresh water springs originating from the awesome mountains nearby. This means we have a year round supply of locally grown sun ripened delicious Mediterranean fruits & veggies that we make good use of in our retreat menus that are predominantly plant based.
In addition, one of our retreat hotels has partnered with a local olive oil producer who uses traditional methods to produce the most delicious organic oil that we use in our menus. Plus, our local town of Altea hosts an annual Eco Fair bringing together local artisans to share their knowledge and products through educational workshops, tastings & demonstrations which of course helps to raise awareness of sustainable living methods.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Giving back:
By coming on our retreats not only do you help support local families & their businesses but you may also like to know that you are enabling us & our hotels to support a number of charities that help local families & individuals through practical & financial support.

Organisations such as; Corazon Express that provides local families with food, practical & financial advice, the local Rotary Club & Red Cross both of whom provide humanitarian aid to the most vulnerable in our communities together with donations to local animal rescue centres who rely completely on donations to continue their work of rescuing, caring for & rehoming animals.

Local Culture:
We encourage guests to explore & immerse themselves into the Spanish way of life by dining at local restaurants & cafes, visiting the weekly 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 love for fiestas!


Ultimately, through all our actions we aim to support local communities and leave a footprint that is as light as can be.
